About the house

La Cachette was formed from two former cottages which has provided it with its current generously proportioned rooms. Situated on a corner, the rooms have natural light and views towards the lavoir (original village public place for washing of clothes) and beyond.

La Cachette includes 3 bedrooms (2 doubles, 1 twin), a lounge/dining room, 2 sitting rooms, 2 bathrooms (showers only), 2 WC, an outdoor paved area, central heating and a washing machine. The house can accommodate a maximum of six guests.

The double bedroom, bathroom and sitting room are located on the ground floor so La Cachette is suitable for people with mobility difficulties. There is a staircase to the first floor and the other bedrooms and bathroom.

It also comes with a TV with 150 channels (several in English), wireless internet, 2 CD players, iPod dock, and telephone with unlimited landline calls to most countries (no mobiles).

All linen is supplied.

There is easy parking available outside the cottage.
