La Petite Maison
La Petite Maison accommodates up to two people. It has been imaginatively renovated to a very high standard and has double glazing throughout. Set well away from the main farmhouse, La Petite Maison has its own private garden, covered terrace and parking area.
The sitting room is equipped with a comfy sofa and a wood-burning stove, along with satellite television (English free-to-air TV channels & radio), a free Wi-Fi internet connection, a DVD player and a CD player. Books, DVDs and CDs are also provided. Two glass candle sconces can be lit at night to add to the atmosphere.
The spacious, fully fitted kitchen has a dishwasher, a fridge-freezer, an oven, a microwave, a ceramic hob and a washing machine. A Welcome Pack is provided so that guests can make a simple first meal upon arrival. The Welcome Pack includes a fresh baguette, butter, jam, croissants, milk, fruit juice, eggs, ham, cheese, a bottle of mineral water and a bottle of local wine!
From the ground floor, a short flight of stairs leads up to a romantic galleried bedroom with a large double bed, a wardrobe and a handbasin. Downstairs, there is a spacious, modern, bathroom with a shower, a hairdryer, a WC and a handbasin.
From the sitting room, French windows lead out to a covered terrace – the terracotta-tiled roof is supported by rustic oak beams. The terrace overlooks La Petite Maison’s private garden, from where steps lead up to the swimming pool and the oak woodlands beyond.
The gardens & grounds
La Petite Maison has its own private garden and is surrounded by 1½ acres of lawns, formal gardens and oak woodlands. Wildlife abounds and nature-lovers will be fascinated by the sheer variety of birds and butterflies to be seen, such as scarce swallowtails, red kites and golden oriels. La Petite Maison’s private terrace has garden furniture, a barbecue, charcoal and barbecue equipment for relaxed outside dining.
From La Petite Maison’s private garden, steps lead up to the pool area. The above-ground saltwater system swimming pool (8m x 4m with a depth of 1.2m throughout) has been landscaped into the hillside and is surrounded by a terrace of wooden decking. The sunny terrace, equipped with sun loungers and parasol, is perfect for sunbathing and relaxing. (NB: the pool is shared with the owners)
Encircling the pool area is a dry-stone wall cascading with colourful shrubs and flowers. An impressive stone pigeonnier – typical of the Tarn and Aveyron – adds to the ambiance of this stylish pool area. Guests are also welcome to explore the adjoining oak woodlands to escape the heat of the day. Find a cool, shady spot and settle down with a good book and a glass of wine – what could be more perfect?
Unfortunately, La Petite Maison is not suitable for children or animals/pets.
