The spacious living-room.
The spacious living-room.

The house overlooks the village of Lapradelle and the castle beyond. It is a very old house, recently renovated. On three floors, the huge living-room is up top, leading onto the roof terrace. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor and two on the first. Now read about the accommodation in detail.

'The street where you live'.

Rue du Cabanot is a quiet street which soon turns into a footpath leading down the valley towards Caudies. You can drop people and shopping at the house and park at the end of the street about 30 yards away. Near the parking place, there is a lane which takes you down to the river and up the other side into the village proper, a very attractive walk.


The ground floor and the garden.

You enter by the front door into a hallway. Immediately to your right is a twin bedroom. Further on, you come to the lower bathroom with shower, wc and washbasin. Down three or four steps, you find the little kitchenette and the single bedroom to your right. The kitchenette is quite basic and is intended for anyone choosing to eat outside in the garden or patio. It has a sink and a little stove. A door leads out onto the patio with the built-in barbecue, beyond which is the garden about 20ms long, bordered with shrubs and plants. It is fenced and safe for children.


The first floor.

Steps lead up from the hallway to the landing on the first floor. To your right is the double bedroom and next to it the second twin bedroom. All bedrooms have plenty of storage and wardrobe space. Then the separate wc, followed by the bathroom with bath, hand-shower, wc and wash-basin.  A door leads into the kitchen/dining area.

The kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher, washing-machine, 4-ring electric cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle etc. There is a pantry off the kitchen. The kitchen has ample work-surface space. At the other end of the room, behind the serving 'bar', is the dining area.  The dining-table, with overhead lighting, has comfortable seating for seven people. The arrangement of the kitchen and dining area makes for maximum convenience.

Porte-fenetres lead from the dining area to the balcony.  Not as large as the roof terrace above, this is a lovely spot for your morning coffee and croissants.  South-facing, it overlooks the garden and, beyond it, the viaduct and the castle.  We try to maintain a small barbecue on the balcony.


The second floor.

Stairs lead up from the landing to the huge living-room which shares the entire floor area with the roof terrace.  Its beautiful beamed ceiling, its windows at both ends, its comfortable leather settees - all make for a very special and inviting room.  You have hundreds of books in English, here and elsewhere in the house.  You have satellite television, a DVD/CD player, a radio/cassette player, plenty of cassettes.  A lovely room in which to relax.

Porte-fenetres lead out on to the broad roof terrace. There you will find tables and chairs, loungers etc.  South-facing, it is a wonderful spot with its superb view over the garden, the village, the castle to the crags beyond.  Both the roof terrace and the balcony below are fenced for safety.  You will love this place.
