On the outskirts of this sleepy village, and hidden behind an historic gate dating from 1675, you will find a well maintained central courtyard with lawn and huge covered terrace, leading to this spacious 3 bedroom Maison de Maître, with its renovated stable block providing a further 3 bedroom guest house with large reception rooms. The property sits in a mature and well planned garden of 1 acre, with swimming pool, pool house, well, pétanque court, various terraces, and bread oven. The property maintains many original features, terracotta floors, exposed beams, stone éviers, and fireplaces as well as benefitting from the high ceilings and tall windows of the era. The exterior terraces are adorned with beautiful mosaics, including the 'Coquille St Jacques' to represent the original pilgrims route of Santiago de Compostela which ran alongside the property.

Perfectly positioned in a rural village with a post office, small village shop, church, Mairie and infant school and yet under an hour from the International airport at Toulouse. 6km from St Nicolas de la Grave with all amenities, and a large boating lake and swimming pool, 10km from the larger town of Castelsarrasin and with great transport links, 13km from the auto route A62 and 14 km from the historic town of Moissac, known for its abbey and cloisters and the 'Véloroute', a former towpath which runs alongside the picturesque 'Canal des Deux Mers' between Bordeaux and Toulouse - very popular for walking and cycling tours. This is a really beautiful property which could function equally well as a large family home with guest accommodation or as a chambres d'hôtes or gite business.
