Sitting high on the slopes, the villa has commanding views across the rolling hills, dotted with medieval hill towns, and over to the mountains in the distance.
This sympathetically restored, spacious stone farmhouse with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and its own private pool, is the perfect destination for those looking to get away from it all. Situated on a country lane, far from the madding crowd, it is surrounded by gardens and farmers fields.
The villa benefits from a fully fitted and well equipped kitchen, WiFi internet access, a DVD player and a large selection of books and games.
Situated in the heart of the Le Manche region, the local village is a 5 min drive away and has everything you need to supplement your holiday - not to mention all the neaby wineries, olive oil producers and market towns. The villa has a wood burning fire and gas central heating for the cooler months.
