A lovely renovated cottage set in magnificent grounds. It is situated within a short distance from the swimming pool and well away from the main house, offering privacy…
…The cottage is accessed by its own private driveway, leading off the drive to the main house. A short stroll across the estate leads to a tennis court and private lake.
This fertile valley, known as “The Garden of France”, is a prolific producer of fruit and vegetables and the estate itself supports a regenerated, historical orchard. The delightful owners are keen horse riders and there is a stable block near to the cottage with paddocks within the grounds. Verger is ideally situated for anyone wishing to explore the surrounding area, to visit beautiful chateaux and sample local wines. Walking and rambling on foot, horseback, bike or car allows you to discover the gently sloping hills, descending into sunflower covered valleys or perhaps you just prefer to relax around the pool. It is within walking distance of the village of Dausse with its shop, superb restaurant and popular night market on Tuesday evenings, throughout July and August. The perfect area for a relaxing holiday.
To the right of the cottage is a large terrace with dining table and BBQ, shaded by a mature walnut tree. The entrance is through French doors into the open plan living area with a comfortable corner couch, English/ French TV, fully fitted modern kitchen and breakfast bar. The well equipped kitchen includes washing machine, fridge with ice compartment, microwave, gas hob and electric oven. A bedroom leads off from opposite sides of this room. Each bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom with shower, basin and WC. The larger bedroom has a double bed. The second bedroom can be fitted with 2 singles, a double or bunk beds, as required. There is a smaller terrace, with tables and chairs, situated immediately outside the entrance to the cottage.
Linen is included. Pool towels can be provided for a weekly charge of 5 euros or please bring your own. Please bring your mobile phones if you require telephone access.
Crossing the smaller terrace and passing under an arch cut into the hedge you arrive at the swimming pool which is surrounded by a terrace, dotted with sun loungers. The pool has integrated steps set to one side of the pool allowing easy access, whilst preserving the pool for some serious swimming. Next to the pool terrace is the chalet style pool house with shower and WC. The pool house also sports a kitchen sink, 2 ring hob and a fridge stocked with drinks by the owners, for a small charge.
The larger terrace has wonderful views of the rolling countryside with the chateau of Dausse in the distance. To the right are a row of grape vines and guests are invited to help themselves to fruit from these and from the prolific orchards, covering the estate.
There is also a tennis court and lake stocked with beautiful fish on the estate (No fishing).
