The ground floor has been converted from the former farmhouse layout into 105m2 of very spacious and comfortable living accommodation benefiting from 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom all double glazed and with an oil fired central heating system. It is laid out as follow:

Kitchen The front door leads into the kitchen from the terrace. The kitchen is traditional in sytle with oak units, granite work tops and a feature range cook that is both wood fired, electric and a gas hob. There is space for a kitchen table in the centre of the room.

Lounge The lounge benefits from 2 south facing windows with wonderful views, an oak parquet floor and a wood burning stove. The owner has managed to keep many of the original Savoyard features including the ceiling and the traditional cupboards.

Bedroom 1 Off the lounge is the large master bedroom also with windows benefiting form the stunning south facing views.

Corridor There is a long corridor that runs the full length of the house and opens up onto the South West side of the house via a door leading into the garden.

Bedroom 3 Double room currently used as an office and accessed via the kitchen or the central corridor. Glass door leading onto the terrace and window. Oak parquet floor.

First Floor


On the first floor is a large empty barn formerly used to store the hay to feed the animals over the harsh winter months. Its now a large space of about 110m2 with a height of about 5.6m just waiting to be transformed into a spectacular open plan living room and kitchen with huge windows with views over the valley. If you don't need any more living space, it's potential uses are limitless, it could be transformed into a huge yoga studio, a climbing wall, a gym or a children's play room. A space where you can start your own business and come and live the dream.



The garden is 1500m2 approximately and benefits from a very pretty Mazot (small outbuilding) that would make a fantastic 'small spaces' conversion project and a dream property to rent out to other retreat seekers looking to escape from it all.

There is also a further outbuilding which is a bread oven that makes a wonderful evening venue for friends and family pizza parties.

And finally the vegetable plot means you can even grow your own organic produce, keep chickens and really embrace the goodlife.

Finally the access to the house is a bit steep, but there's your final excuse to buy that Landrover Defender you have always wanted.

Agency fees included, payable by the vendor.

About Cle France, The French Property Network

Clé France is a UNIQUE network of estate agency professionals in France. Local knowledge and expertise is the very foundation of our business, and who knows France better than the French? Every one of our agents has been born, bred and trained in the area in which they work, and are able to offer local insight and assistance second to none.

They operate in the French property market, their vendors are for the most part French and so are their buyers, so when they value a property they do so in a truly local context. You can therefore be assured that you are buying property priced at the correct level for the local market, rather than that aimed at an international clientele.

Buying through Clé France means that you have access to these agents, often small independent operators, who you would otherwise never come across. For the first time, you as a British buyer genuinely have the same choice as somebody French walking through the doors of their local high street agent, and AT NO EXTRA CHARGE.

Not only are you getting the best that the French market has to offer, but you have the benefit of a U.K based enquiry office, and all of our agents speak English. We work together to guide you through the process of finding and buying your dream property, and beyond. All of our agents are long established French professionals, who have strong links with their communities, often forged over generations: they are a mine of information for our clients, and prove themselves invaluable when it comes to settling into your new home.

Sharon Evans has spent 15 years living and working in France, and understands the needs of U.K buyers. This along with an in depth knowledge of the buying system in France, the language and the culture means that you are in excellent and safe hands. Along with the team in France she can offer her clients the best of both worlds: the best value property and a superb bi lingual support network.
