THIS IS A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN ENJOY SIMPLE LIVING.

 

 
               
 


The house is a rustic, lived-in, peaceful place. We've gradually restored the first floor and ground floor to make a light and comfortable space to be in, keeping all the original character and adding some things we've come across on our travels around Asia and other places.


 
             
 


A wide veranda runs the length of the house making a shady place to sit or play when the heat of the sun makes it too hot to run about outside.
You'll find plenty of books on travel, art and other subjects to read, there are lots of paintings on the walls and rugs on the floor. We have an eclectic mix of crockery in a spacious kitchen with a large fridge and cooker and a big family table.
The house can accommodate four to five people and a cot is available for a baby if you need one.
There is a double bedroom leading through to a shared/en suite bathroom with over-sized shower and roll top bath, There are two more bedrooms downstairs, one with two single beds, and the second with a single, raised, bunk style bed for another child. If you'd like to have some toys and books for young children please ask us in advance and we'll arrange it. All bed linen and towels are provided (but please bring your own beach towels).

 
             
 


The house is tucked away in a private and peaceful location and the only traffic you're likely to see is the odd passing tractor. There are endless walks to go on, and ancient stone villages with crumbling castles to explore.
Children will love the closeness to nature where they can let their hair down and run wild outside, discovering lizards and cicadas and collecting eggs from our free range chickens. (who you have to remember to let out in the morning and put to bed at night in case the fox decides to visit.)
Our friendly cats Blackberry and Cloudy and their kittens will probably visit you for a stroke, they like to laze about on the veranda and do a great job of keeping the mice at bay. You may also be visited by our two semi-tame wild rabbits, who like to hang about near the house. If you're lucky and approach them very slowly, they might let you stroke them...

 

 
               
 

We will be based nearby some of the time, in between taking off on other adventures. We have a caretaker on call should you need help with anything if we are not available.

 
             
 

BE WARNED THOUGH! This is not your average French holiday house with matching utilitarian white plates, T.V, wi-fi and dishwasher. We don't have a swimming pool either, (although there is a great swimming river and two outdoor pools nearby). There is a washing machine and there are plenty of plugs if you want to bring your own gadgets! You'll need to bring your mobile too.
