This charming stone house stands in a C13 bastide village, and has 150 sq m of living space on three floors over cellars. There is a terrace and small garden of 235 sq m. The front door is up three steps from street level and the whole side overlooks a pretty square with adequate parking. In the entrance hall there is a fine old staircase and access to the kitchen containing a large range (fired alternatively by wood, by electricity and gas) and there is a traditional sink. Beyond the kitchen lies the sitting room/dining room with french doors onto the vine-covered terrace, with a sheltered dining area, and beyond, the garden with its shed.
The first floor has two bedrooms, a shower room with wc and there is third bedroom, presently used as a study. The stairs continue to the top floor, which needs refreshment, but retains pleasant traditional features, two bedrooms and access to attic storage.
There are two cellars, one with access from the square and the other with a stone vault. There is also an old shop with double doors onto the street and access from the entrance hall; it has been used to garage a small car. From there, steps lead down to the cellars and access could be made through to the garden.
Other interesting features of the property include a C17 front door and a section of medieval lane with ancient features surviving. This is one of the historic houses of the village and the side facing the square includes a section of the ancient town wall. In the village, there is a bar/restaurant, a bakery/village shop and a shop selling local produce. The village has a range of artisans and tradesmen. Surrounding the village on all sides there is beautiful countryside. At six km, a Saturday market can be found, a school, doctor’s surgery and a pharmacy.
