Description

The Farmhouse (Sleeps 8, 4 Bedrooms)

Built in around 1850 from the local granite and oak this is a really lovely traditional farmhouse. The heavily beamed living room has a huge fireplace, three sofas and lots of character.

Also on the ground floor is the kitchen with farmhouse table with seating for eight. The kitchen has all mod cons including dishwasher and microwave.

There are four bedrooms each with a double bed and far reaching views and beamed ceilings. Single beds are available to make any room into a twin. There are two bathrooms and a great outside area for barbecues. The house has got a really cosy feel and is a great place for family entertaining and fun.

Both houses share a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer.

There is a quality CD player as well as TV, DVD and satellite to receive all the regular UK stations.

About the property

FR4069

Le Puy offers totally tranquility and is set in the middle of our private 500 acre private estate. The Farmhouse and Lodge share a large newly fitted pool with sun-deck, fitness center (with wi-fi and pool table) and the exclusive use of the entire estate. Each house has its own outside area with BBQ and great views over the woods and hills of the Limousin. The local village is a 5 minute drive away for the morning croissant run, with a great selection of restaurants within easy reach. Lake Vassiviere is a 10 minute drive away offering water sports and beaches for swimming. We have an abundance of wildlife for you to see, as well as over 10km of paths to explore, without leaving the estate. So whether you just want to chill by the pool or get out and about, Le Puy is the perfect place for your holiday. The houses have been been tastefully refurnished and feature beamed ceilings, big open fireplaces and bags of character. We've fitted the houses with a mix of new and antique furniture to create a comfortable but stylish base for your holiday. Because we've got kids ourself, we've geared things up for families, with high chairs, toys and all the other bits you need to keep everyone happy.

About Martin Webb

We've had Le Puy since 2005. The place was a real wreck then but we've loved bringing the place back to life since then. We still live in the UK running a restaurant business in Sussex, but would love to move to France full-time when the kids are bigger.

Martin Webb purchased this farmhouse in 2005

Why Martin Webb chose Creuse

Le Puy is all about nature. From the stunning views to the buzzards flying overhead and the stags wandering through our forest, it's all about getting in tune with a slower pace of life. We've also made the houses comfortable, well-equipped an easy to relax in. Everything you need is to hand and the kids will love it too. Having said that, you won't feel isolated with British TV and WiFi to keep you up to date with goings on if you need them. The area around Le Puy is also really beautiful - forest clad hills, lakes, rivers and sleepy authentic villages. One of the best things is the amazing pool which has fantastic views over the surrounding countryside - it's heated and really big, so great fun for all the family.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The views from the pool are extraordinary - you can see for miles without any intrusion from the modern world. We've also got loads of nature all around - birds, bats, trees, flowers and everything else.
