You enter the property via the Mediterranean style courtyard with numerous flowering exotic plants. The property is in two connected parts: the main house dates from late 18th/early 19th century and the other part (Kitchen/Utility etc) is of 12th century origin. The kitchen was reportedly used during the mid 19th century for local official meetings and was known as City Hall, possibly connected with the 15thC private Chateau and Church in sight of the house. Considerable restoration has been carried out taking care to protect and enhance its antiquity character. In the main house the ground floor has a 44 m² living room with wood burner and various original features. Entered from the salon the 32m2 farmhouse-style kitchen retains many traditional features with rustic solid wood work surfaces and access to the shady terrace perfect for dining alfresco.
