Facing east, west and north the gîte has been converted from a former barn and offers 110 square metres of space. It can be used either as a wholly self-contained space, with the connecting door to the main farmhouse locked, or as a part of the main house. It was previously used as an artist's workshop. The gîte has been successfully let by the current owners for the last 12 years between April/May and October, to couples only (read more here). Heating is provided by electric radiators; a wood or pellet burner could easily be installed for use through the winter months.
Most of the furniture and equipment in the gîte is included in the sale price.
