Excellent Private French schools with access to music, theatre and tennis in our village, our children had a model school as their start in life and the best view of the sky and stars at night. No light around at all the clarity is quite beautiful.

This outstanding 18th Century house has been lovingly restored to a very high standard whilst retaining authentic features including a huge granite fireplace and exposed beams.  The accommodation is arranged over 3 floors and the habitable surface area is about 250m².  The gardens are landscaped and it has a swimming pool.

The current owners have recently had a lot of work done in the garden; re-fitted a shower in the family bathroom and replaced the boiler and the cooker.  Viewing is highly recommended.
