At the front of the house, there are two double bedrooms with fantastic views across to the mountains and a shared bathroom. The other two bedrooms are larger and are en suite. There is a separate entrance door with external stairs leading down to the garden. This whole area can be isolated and therefore function as guest bedrooms or as a self-contained flat. The studio can accommodate two more bedrooms with bathrooms making a total of seven. The studio is ideal as it stands, for use as a painting, yoga or meditation retreat. The area is superb for walking, climbing, mountain biking and is famous for its hill climb cycling competitions on the Col de Rates 5 minutes away.
