This attractive, 18th century French village house is on the border of the Tarn and the Aveyron. Toulouse is 1.5 hours but there are excellent shops at Carmaux, 18 km away.
The five bedrooms are laid out over two floors and the ground floor has the original exposed beams. The house sits in 4 acres of gardens and grounds and includes a substantial barn which is attached to the house as well as a garage and wood store.
Amenties include a heated swimming swimming pool of 11 x 6 metres and a boules court.
‘It’s a very attractive property which has been beautifully renovated and is in very good condition,’ says agent Jonathan Pugh of the Toulouse-based agency Jonathan Charles. ‘We’ve just reduced the price from €600,000 to €495,000.’ (+33 609 72 37 04; www.jonathancharles.co.uk)
