The farmhouse, made of two buildings, was restored and renovated creating an outbuilding and 5 suites in the main villa, one inhabited by the owner. Each suite has a separate entrance.
The ground floor living room, originally the stable, creates a medieval atmosphere around the fireplace, with a large 24-place wooden table and a perfectly equipped kitchen. This room is ideal for eating all together or for playing pool, for cookery courses or musical moments, with the hi-fi system and grand piano.
This living room leads to all the outdoor areas, as well as to all the ground floor and first floor suites.
The first suite on the ground floor has a double sofa bed and cooking area as well as a double bedroom with bathroom with shower. The second ground floor suite has a room with two single beds, a dining room with cooking area, a double bed and a bathroom with shower. Both ground floor suites have outdoor access.
