Description from owner


Wonderful moments await you as you go through the 16 century porch leading to the beautifully restored cottage "Gîte de La Villate". During the summer the swimming pool will delight you as will the welcoming sitting room with its 18 century panelling, its fireplace burning brightly in the winter or the games room and its billiards table, piano...

Come and forget the humdrum of everyday life.

The Cottage of La Villate ("Gîte de France" de La Villate) form part of a 15/16 century estate restored by the owners, who live on this exceptional property. As they are very aware of ecological impacts on the environment, they have installed Geothermal heating in the house.

The swimming pool, which they will share with their guests, will undoubtedly charm you from the very moment you enter the estate thanks to the discrete Provencal influence the owners have brought in.

Should you wish to leave the swimming-pool, just rest on the terrace for some quiet time; go and play pool table in the Games room, Pinball machines from the 60s, table Football, Piano...

Complementary information: The official organisation Gîtes de France graded the «Gîte de la Villate» 5 stars/ears of corn (n°15681) in July 2005 & every year since. Bookings are operated by the Gîtes de France.
