This beautiful south-facing stone farmhouse is set in 18 acres of rolling hillside and oak woods, and occupies an elevated position at 350m (1150ft) altitude. The property benefits from truly impressive panoramic views, and on a clear day the outline of the Black Mountains can be seen – at a distance of 100km no less. It is well worth visiting Pech's own website in order to fully appreciate the impressive setting. The site may be accessed via the website link in the 'contact owner' section at the bottom of this advert.

On the first floor there is the master double bedroom (in the eaves), one twin bedroom, and a further double bedroom.

There is a local shop for the morning Croissant run plus a local bar/restaurant. The local town is a short drive and offers a good range of Supermarkets plus activities for the kids. All... more

Pech du Fournel is set in a remote but beautiful location. The property is large - we were two families with five children & teens - and we had plenty of space. It is well equipped with everything you'd need for a self catering holiday. The English family who looked after the house while we were there, were really helpful.... more
