Orange house description

The house is configured to have privacy and comfort.
It has TWO bathrooms, which is unusual for a 2 bedroom house but that makes it perfect for 2 couples traveling together .
Upon entering the foyer, there is one bedroom with a Queen bed to the right. Off the foyer to the left is a large bathroom with a soaking tub.
Up the ornate stairs , one flight ,to the main living area with kitchen, dining and living room. The couch converts to a trundle bed for additional sleeping. There is a flat screen TV and a large DVD library for entertainment.

Up another flight of stairs to the second bedroom with En-suite bathroom and queen size bed.

Opposite the bedroom is a solarium with large glass windows that can be opened to have a feeling of being outside or closed if the weather is not the best. Each bedroom has it's own separate heat/AC unit. The main salon also has a separate unit, as does the solarium. The house was totally renovated in 2006 to bring modern comfort to this 12th century dwelling but the original stone and beams remain.
The house is located in Pierrelatte, a lively market village, located in the Drome Provençal with 12,000 inhabitants. In the Village there are several restaurants and a Grand Rue with all the shops, butchers, bakers, groceries, general stores, and chocolatier and of course the traditional French bar cafes necessary for an enjoyable, easy visit. The house is located within an easy 10 minute walk to the train station.

There is swimming at a lovely beach that is less than 3 km from the house. The beach has a playground for children and a nice café. You can watch the windsurfers on the opposite side of the beach.. Market day is every Friday and occurs just steps from the front door. Local produce, cheeses, meats, and flowers can be purchased, as well as fresh seafood and herbs. In summer, lavender sweetens the air, and cherry and fig trees produce edible delicacies.


Further Details: We have 'wanderlust' and enjoy traveling the world. Our permanent home is in Florida but we fell in love with Europe when we lived in Brugge, Belgium for 2 years. We are tax professionals part of the year and spend our time traveling the rest of the year. Our 'baby' is our three kilo teacup poodle 'Marcel'.

We are an American couple who has lived abroad-—and love it! We have family living in Pierrelatte, so when the opportunity arose to purchase and restore this classic 11th century home, we jumped on it.

Our little french village is the perfect size as we can walk to everything. Pierrlatte is a Market town and always has various events happening. Our dog likes to walk to the small park at the end of our Rue and we can admire the olive trees and the lovely ancient homes along the way.
