Built in the reign of Napoléon III, this attractive ’maison de maître’ is in a peaceful setting just 3km from Aiguillon. The Canal du Midi lies to the south and boats can be hired from Buzet (12km). The large garden has an integrated watering system and automatic lighting. There are different levels with some unguarded drops, so care should be taken with toddlers. Various outdoor and indoor facilities are provided (including badminton, pin-ball machine, piano, electric keyboard, video player). There is a walled barbecue area and poolside bar area. Steps lead up to the raised pool with low wall (housing a small goldfish pond), from where there are pleasant woodland and meadow views. Inside is very warm and welcoming and the attractive, split-level sitting room has lovely terracotta floor tiles (with underfloor heating) and stairs to the large galleried landing. An ideal holiday base.
