Cordes-sur-Ciel Owners Club
Sel Boite Maison is a fabulous 5 bedroom restored former farmhouse offering flexible accommodation, a lovely swimming pool, all set in an acre of well stocked private gardens just 4 kilometres from Cordes Sur Ciel.
The house boasts many original features including beamed ceilings, wooden flooring, and stone walls whilst benefiting from satellite TV and wireless internet access.
Access to the main living area on the first floor is via an impressive external stone staircase. Entry to the first floor accommodation is through a large tiled entrance hall featuring a mezzanine area, perfect to relax in, read books, or play the collection of board games. The family bathroom is accessed off the hallway and there is now a new staircase here leading down to the 3 new bedrooms created in 2017 on the ground floor.
To the right of the hall is a spacious lounge diner with a fantastic picture window looking out over the spectacular countryside of the Cerou Valley. The lounge features an impressive log burner for the winter months, a comfortable seating area and large dining table.
To the left of the entrance hallway is the spacious kitchen which is the hub of the home providing a great place to cook and dine.
Leading off the kitchen via a light and airy hallway are two bedrooms. The first can be set up as a twin or double and the second is a double with en-suite shower room.
Now the refurbishment is complete there are 3 further bedrooms on the ground floor. The master has its own twin sink and bath, and just next door is a shower room and separate toilet. Along the corridor past the utility room with washer, drier and wine fridge is Bedroom 4 with twin beds which can also be a double. You pass through the snug sitting room, into Bedroom 5 which has a kingsize bed and en-suite bathroom.
Outside the house is surrounded by well-stocked gardens on 3 sides with many secluded seating areas in the sun or shade, alfresco dining and BBQ areas, and an original shaped swimming pool which takes advantage of the old railway line platform that used to be here.
The property is located in a small hamlet surrounded by fields and within a short walk of the Cerou River. The surrounding countryside is perfect for country walks.
The stunning medieval bastide town of Cordes Sur Ciel is just 4K away (5 minutes drive or 15 minutes by bike) with its many shops & restaurants.
This beautiful hilltop town, (awarded "France's best loved village 2014") provides spectacular views and a great Saturday market.
Prices for Sel Boite Maison start at €1400 and rise to €2100 per week in the high season.
