Gite Topaze Dorée is extra 'light and airy' having two french windows; one opening out onto your own private paved terrace area with table, chairs and barbecue, and the other opening onto the general terrace, garden and pool area of this lovely holiday property. It could be great for wedding anniversary celebration, a romantic holiday for two, or for house-hunting in the area!! Converted from the stable and original staff quarters of the old house, this end-of-terrace gite comprises a comfortable living room and galley-style kitchenette on the ground floor, decorated in the Provencal style, and a spacious twin bedroom and shower room on the first floor. Gite Topaze Dorée is situated in Olonzac which has shops, bars, restaurants, take-aways and a fantastic Tuesday morning market - all just a few steps away. The large swimming pool and the spa pool/jacuzzi is in the garden and there are plenty of sun-loungers. Despite being in the town, the garden location here is both calm and enchanting. The municipal park next door was once part of the garden and now provides a pleasant place to stroll. Gite Topaze Dorée is well recommended, particularly as the owners are very flexible about your arrival and departure dates, subject to availability (minimum stay 3 nights). They go out of their way to make you welcome and have a good knowledge of the region. They are also licensed to sell beer, pastis and wine to guests only and on the terrace of the large house. More
