Drôme, A contemporary farm


This towering former sheepfold provides a fantastic view

Built circa 1750, this 450-sq m former sheepfold sits in a gorgeous protected environment. “At an altitude of 550 m, the property offers a fantastic view over the hills and the fields, stresses the LCDI agency. You’ll feel as if you’re at the end of the world.” Entirely renovated in a contemporary style, the house has nine bedrooms, six of which feature materials such as wood, linen and stained concrete. The rooms come with their own bathroom, flat screen and DVD player. A fireplace, wooden floors, stone walls and exposed beams are dispatched in the other common rooms. On the outside, the 2-ha (4.94 acres) lot provides splendid amenities including terraces, three shaded spaces to enjoy meals during the hot summer days, a swimming pool with a wooden terrace, and a jacuzzi. Five metres above the ground, a tree house makes for extraordinary nights under the stars. Valence, the nearest TGV train station, is a one-hour drive away. Proposed price: 1,650,000 euros
