Les Cerisiers 4 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms | Fenced Pool | Table Tennis | WiFi | Sleeps 8
The recent renovation of Les Cerisiers has transformed a small, ordinary house into a spacious and welcoming home that combines traditional touches with contemporary elements to great effect. Set within grounds of established trees and lawn, the original building has been extended to create an impressive property built from the beautiful honey coloured stone of the region.
Step inside and you are greeted with a large open plan space. Exposed stone walls are interspersed with steel framed windows and doors, enhancing the light and airy feel created by the double height ceiling and crisp white walls. Bright splashes of colour are provided by the artwork found throughout.
Outside, the dining terrace wraps around two sides of the house and offers views over the wide open landscape of fields and neighbouring homes. Cherry and plum trees provide interest, there's plenty of space for children to play, and the fenced pool sits in an elevated position with views over the countryside.
Follow the country road for 1.5km and you arrive in Duravel, a charming village with amenities including a restaurant frequented by the locals. Head in the other direction and you meet the River Lot as it meanders its way through the rural landscape towards the sea. Canoeing and boat trips are available along the river whilst further exploration leads to pretty villages such as Puy-l’Evêque and Prayssac, which still hold weekly markets where stalls are laden with local produce.
