Tucked into a sweet courtyard garden, here is a charming bolthole for two. You’re in a village yet no-one would know you were here, your little house is so snugly private – that’s half the attraction. Step into an open-plan living area with stone and lime-plaster walls, comfy blue sofa, mosaic-topped table and a galley kitchen decked out in yellow and blue. It’s spotlessly clean and you have all you need: coffee maker, decent crockery, CD player, good reading lamps. Then it’s up the open staircase to the bedroom under the beams. Handsome, quality bedding is set off by a simple pine floor, white walls and prettily exposed stone. A ‘Juliet’ balcony overlooks the courtyard; the bathroom, with walk-in shower, dazzles in white and blue. The courtyard is just lovely, with its flowered tubs and climbing shrubs, attractive table and chairs and quirky collection of tools and rustic keys. Delightful Sandra lives opposite, on hand to help but respecting your privacy. She’ll tell you all about the markets and restaurants, the lake for swimming and the stunning walks.
