Our spacious family house is set in the countryside, with plenty of walks on our doorstep and an area rich in natural beauty, where the pace of life is gentle.
A place to truly relax, for breakfast al fresco there is a terrace overlooking the pool, the fields, trees and cornfields beyond, making it easy to sit with your morning coffee and croissant and enjoy the sun. Or spend the afternoon under the palm tree, sipping a cold drink and reading, or enjoy hours of family fun in the huge private pool.
Beyond the large pool there are extensive grounds to provide masses of play space for children, and also games including badminton and basketball.
