Message From The Seller

We have loved the generous proportions of this high-ceilinged, light-filled house; with its garden, it has been ideal for family and friends to roam around in. Given time and attention, it could be a stunning property. The village is quiet, but various events take place in the ‘salle polyvalente’ or village hall, and the annual ‘mechoiu’, an outdoor barbeque in a local field, is a great opportunity for meeting the neighbours in merry mood.
