Totally Secluded 18th Century Stone Farmhouse With Stunning Views



Updated: 10-Oct-2016
Farmhouse in Saint Projet, Nr. Najac, Midi Pyrenees, France - Heated Swimming Pool, Floodlit Boules Pitch In Open Barn

Couyoula is situated at the end of its own lane in grounds of 4 acres that enjoy total privacy and uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside. There is a stunning 12x5m heated pool with electric cover and underwater lighting. There is also a floodlit boules pitch set in an ivy clad open barn. The house is centrally heated and offers luxury modern living whilst retaining the original character stone and oak beam features. The ground level is tiled in stone (with underfloor heating) and upper levels are finished in solid oak. All 4 bedrooms are large and all have full en-suite facilities. With a view to families sharing, the second double bedroom is of the same high quality as the master suite. The 30ft kitchen features a 12ft oak dining table and leads directly out onto a covered dining area. Conveniently situated only 10 minutes from the small bastide town of Caylus and an easy drive to the beautiful towns of St Antonin Noble Val, Najac, St Cirq Lapopie and Cordes Sur Ciel.

"We found every last detail of the house and it's tasteful decoration faultless and so enjoyed holidaying there with all the stunning surrounding towns and villages Thankyou for the thoughtful "welcome pack" and guidance notes that allowed us to make the most of the time we spent there. We lost power several times during a powerful thunderstorm on Wednesday night but the torch and notes regarding reset buttons made restoring power simple. Rarely have we found such attention to detail in a holiday cottage." Atkins Family, August 2012

"The layout of the house is perfect for socialising together but also great for giving you space if you need it, if in a large party. Cannot say enough good things. Great house in a great setting." Olley & Hunter Families, Sept 2010.

"A great destination to relax and unwind. Typically French with a magnificent pool and above all else totally unspoilt and tranquil. The choice of barbeque, home cooking or eating out was great." Whistead Family. May 2010.

Grand Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This is a first class property with all amenities provided. Very quiet location, but a good number of attractive towns within easy distance. Many of them having good markets which makes them lively and interesting to visit. Many very good restaurants in easy distance, but not walkable. The house has a good boule piste as well as a lovely swimming pool and other garden games available. The property is set in a very large plot and both house and grounds are very well maintained. We had a very relaxing time and would readily return in the future.
