This pretty stone built country house on the edge of a small hamlet has the most superb pool and garden area and is perfect for a quiet relaxing holiday. It is extremely well equipped and is within easy driving distance of Najac and St Antonin Noble Val (used as the location for films ‘Charlotte Grey ‘ and ‘The Hundred Foot Journey’ ) are around 30 minutes, both of which are magnificent medieval towns retaining all their wonderful architecture and charm and remain unspoilt by the passage of time. Villefranche is reached in 20 minutes and, as well as the popular Thursday market, provides all your needs for in-house catering.

Surrounded by countryside, this is a delightful place to spend a quiet simple holiday. It is a paradise for nature lovers, walkers and those who prefer to simply relax by the pool. On the edge of a small hamlet and with beautiful Angora goats as discreet neighbours, you can enjoy the true rural French scene.
 
Chosen by the famous travel writer Alistair Sawday for his book Special Places to Stay in France for Self Catering.
 
La Salesse:
The property has been carefully restored over recent years, ensuring that many of the original features such as exposed and dressed stonework have been retained. Like many houses of this style there are low beams and steep internal staircases. The main living area, on the first floor, has a dining area, comfortable lounge area and well equipped, compact kitchen which has been lovingly updated. There is a bedroom on this floor and a further two bedrooms on the second floor.
 
Passing through the gateway to the rear garden you come into the most delightful part of the property. Recently up-dated it is like a ‘secret’ garden with a swimming pool set in a ‘tapering’ meadow which has delightfully shaded areas. It is a perfect setting to while away those warm summer days.
 
Entry into the property is at ground floor level where, off the hallway is a shower-room and separate toilet. The staircase leads to the dining and living area and at the top of the stairs there is a double bedroom to the left.
 
The main accommodation is delightful and comfortable for 6 people and comprises of a small, fully fitted kitchen with a dining table, sitting area and an adjoining ‘souillard’ with a vaulted ceiling and ‘evier’ reached through a stone archway. There is a small balcony where some of you may wish to take the morning sun with your breakfast. There is a TV for use with the video player with a selection of videos, plenty of books, some games and a CD player.
 
An open staircase leads to the second floor which has been remodelled providing a spacious 7m x 4m room which can be used as a bedroom and/ or living area. From here there is a brand new bathroom with shower, basin and toilet and second bedroom with double bed. This whole floor has been renovated with additional velux windows.
 
The Grounds:
The pool, which is very private and looks across pasture land and is 11m by 5m with the depth ranging from 1m to 2.5m. There is a newly extended loggia providing shade to dine outside with an electrical point where you can keep a fridge for instant access to the cold beers etc.  A selection of pool toys, loungers, table and chairs and kids play area are provided too for your enjoyment.
