Cordes-sur-Ciel cottage description

El Palomar (the dovecote) is a very special and romantic little cottage that sits on three acres of land. You feel as if you were in the countryside, but you are really walking distance from Les Cabannes and a four minute drive from beautiful Cordes-sur Ciel.

The house is compact and charming. Once a train waypoint, it has been beautifully restored and has a charming country kitchen that opens out to a 'terrasse' with stone walls that has a large table for dining 'al fresco' and a small table and chairs for just sitting and sipping drinks during the pleasant afternoons and evenings. The kitchen has a refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave and a clothes washer/dryer. It is completely equipped with dishes, flatware and cooking utensils. It also has a small toilet for guests.

From the kitchen, you go up to the main living area that has a sofa and love-seat, and comfortable chairs. Then up to the garret sleeping area, with a heavenly iron framed bed and a full bathroom. There are linens and towels and feather duvets. The house has electric heating and there is also an air conditioning unit in the bedroom for when the summer nights get too warm.

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About: I am a Chopra Center certified meditation, ayurveda and yoga instructor. I live in Puerto Rico but spend months at a time at 'El Palomar', my cottage in France. I purchased this cottage as a complete ruin and lovingly restored it to the vision I had when I first saw it. It is my refuge. The area is beautiful and the people are wonderful.

                  Why Cordes-sur-Ciel:
                  I went to this area in France to take a painting course. The beauty of the area and the wonderful friends I made there made me start looking for a home I could buy. When I saw 'El Palomar' I knew I had found it. It was just four stone walls and a crumbling roof but from the moment I saw it I knew what it could be. It took me two years but my dream has come true and it is exactly as I imagined it.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  I love just staying there and 'living the French life'. I go to the Cordes market every Saturday and the sit at the café at the 'place' chatting with friends who stop by the table to say hello... There are so many beautiful little towns around, it's nice to go for day trips once in a while. There is a lake nearby where my friends and I have picnics. Every other Wednesday night during the Summers, Les Cabannes (the town where it is located) has a dance on the main road. Everyone sits on long tables that are set up on the sidewalks, there is music and food and dancing! Alternate Wednesdays the mayor gives open-air movies at the square. There are Summer concerts, festivals... so much to do!!
