An attractive cottage in a very peaceful rural area not far from the historic town of Cluny and the religious village of Taize. A small village a mile away provides most basic needs.
The cottage enjoys a very peaceful location with panoramic views and is very private . The 12m swimming pool is a bonus for summer users (but not heated). Extra rooms are available in the main house opposite - please ask for a price and details.
A former farm building the cottage has a king sized bed on a mezzanine floor with large fitted cupboards. Downstairs is a fully equipped kitchen with all mod cons. A passage with fitted cupboards houses the fridge and washing machine amongst other things, and the adjacent bathroom has both bath and separate shower, as well as WC and washbasin.
Beyond is the living room, with folding patio doors and an enormous old bread oven (not in use !). The sofa doubles up as a very comfortable double bed. There is a music centre and a TV.
Extra accommodation may be available: A double bedded bedroom and a twin bedded bedroom are available as well in the main house from June onwards giving an additional 4 beds if needed.
