Fleuret Cottage dates back to 1820, and is part of the hamlet of Fleuret. This French cottage has been completely renovated and incorporates traditional features such as the original bread oven and stone sink alcove with ‘œil de bœuf’, terracotta flooring, exposed beams and stonework. Nestled at the bottom of the property, it enjoys a completely private garden while benefiting from the beauty of the red sandstone buildings behind, large swimming pool and games room, landscaped grounds, meadows and woodlands. The breathtaking view of the medieval village of Curemonte on the opposite side of the valley adds to the uniqueness of this lovely home
The cottage is on two floors and accommodates up to four people.
The large salon features a terracotta floor, fireplace with wood-burning stove and beautifully exposed stonework. Well furnished for your comfort, we have a selection of books and games, plenty of information on the area, as well as satellite TV and DVD. The kitchen is set in the original bread oven, and is fully equipped with gas hob, electric oven, fridge-freezer and dishwasher. French doors open onto the terrace and barbecue area.
The cottage has a private terrace and garden, with adjacent parking. The huge 14 x 7 metre swimming pool is situated next to the barn, some 50 metres from the cottage, while the upper floor of the barn has been converted into a large games room with table tennis, table football and a pool table . This area is fenced so that young children cannot gain access unaccompanied. The pool and barn are situated well away from the cottage and shared with guests staying in the main house. The swings and sandpit are situated in the back garden on the other side of the property. A laundry room with two washing machines and a dryer is also available for the use of all our guests. The English owners live in the third house on the property, and are happy to help you with any queries you may have during your holiday. WIRELESS INTERNET CONNECTION AVAILABLE ON SITE
