The east and west gardens enclose the house, the terrace and the mosaic tiled pool, all of which is further surrounded by 18 acres of horse meadows, and woodland.

About the Owner

My family have lived here at La Crabouille since arriving in November 1999.

The house was in a tired state as it had not been lived in for a few years. We set about the renovation and we started letting the property out for holidays in the summer of 2001.

We do not live on the property during the peak summer season but we do live on site in rooms on the ground floor for the rest of the year.

Beautiful property - perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property in a great quiet location. The property is perfectly maintained and beautifully presented and much larger than we had anticipated - great for a holiday with the extended family. The photos don't do it justice! Kevin is a great host and full of knowledge about the local area / things to do. We definitely recommend!

From the Owner

We loved the feel of the house it had been a grand family house and we believed it would be again. The retired farmer and his wife had lived in the house and the local area all their lives and still today at 93 and 88 still live as neighbours only a field away.
