Located between Lectoure and Fleurance and sleeping up to 8/12** people, this impressive property is set entirely in its own grounds of 1.5 hectares with a long private driveway. Attention to detail in this newly renovated old stone Maison de Maître may be seen throughout and the owners have created an extremely spacious and comfortable home.
The entrance door opens into the welcoming hallway with baby grand piano which may be made available to serious pianists. To the left is a large sitting/TV room (41m2) with several comfortable sofas and armchairs, exposed beams and flatscreen TV. All floors are tiled in creamy travertine. To the right of the entrance hallway is a spacious double bedroom, decorated in light tones, with ensuite bathroom including Victorian roll top bath, separate shower, basin and WC (this bedroom can also be made up as a twin bedded room or with one large superking bed).
Also on this level is an enormous 130m2 open plan kitchen/sitting/dining room. Beautiful travertine tiled flooring throughout this area, exposed beams and an open stone fireplace give real character to the room, with a combination of antique and contemporary furnishings. In the well-equipped kitchen area there is a extensive range of light wood base and wall units with built in microwave, a Falcon range style cooker, plenty of work surface space, a central marble topped island, and a larder behind the main kitchen with large fridge/freezer. To the rear of this upper level is the master suite (52m2) with views overlooking the pool. The large ensuite bathroom to the master suite includes walk-in shower, Victorian roll top bath, double basins and WC. There is also a guest cloakroom on this level. All windows look out onto the grounds with beautiful views.
A staircase leads down to the garden level where there are three further bedrooms, one with ensuite shower room, the other 2 sharing a large family bathroom, and a laundry room. The large ensuite double bedroom has arched doors leading to the garden. Along the tiled corridor the other two bedrooms share the family bathroom (large bath, separate shower, double basins and WC). One of the bedrooms is a spacious double with arched doors leading out to the garden whilst the last bedroom has 4 single beds more suitable for children and which may be made available to guests for a supplementary price - please ask us for details**.
Outside, the grounds surround the property are mainly laid to lawn with a good selection of shrubs and trees. The large pool house with terracotta floor, covered dining area and summer kitchen (with sink, fridge and work surface) overlooks the large 12m x 5m salt water swimming pool which has a generous sunbathing terrace. For a supplement the pool may be heated.
Throughout, both interior and exterior, the quality of this renovation is evident and given its private location guests will feel they have found a really peaceful haven from which to enjoy a lovely relaxing holiday yet being not far from all the sites.
Closest shops - St Clar where there is a supermarket and small shops, a doctor and restaurants. For more substantial shopping Fleurance has all amenities including a market every Tuesday and the market town of Lectoure is only 15/20 minutes away.

"we had a completely fabulous holiday, a week of very warm weather in the most outstanding property. It managed to feel like a family home rather than a holiday let and it was very difficult to leave. Thank you for your organisation in getting us there and for the map you kindly sent through to me beforehand. The meal we ordered through Sarah, the local lady whose cooking services were advertised in the property, was excellent and we were only sorry we could only manage to arrange one meal through her. We'd certainly highly recommend this property to others" (RH July 2015)
