Spacious holiday gite, with solar heated pool in the Lot Valley, France.
Chai Nous is a spacious barn conversion in its own grounds offering modern comforts and tranquility, nestling on the edge of woods beside a former vineyard.
Situated near Belaye, Lot Valley.
Exclusive use of solar heated pool with fabulous views over the valley.
The living area has a comfortably furnished lounge with space to seat four adults, a TV, video and DVD players. Large patio doors look onto an elevated external sitting area approached by 4 steps.
There is a dining area adjacent to the luxurious open-plan kitchen, which has a breakfast bar, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, and electric hob and oven, microwave and electric kettle.
Separate utility area with washing machine and tumble dryer, iron and ironing board.
The master bedroom is on the galleried first floor, with a traditional French double bed, and has a cloakroom with WC adjacent.
The second bedroom is on the ground floor with twin beds and views of the woods.
The newly fitted ground floor bathroom has a full size bath with shower, WC and washbasin.
There is a large terrace at the rear for lovely al-fresco dining and a gas barbeque, and an extensive forecourt at the front. Enjoy the shady wooded area and the grassy slopes in full sunshine.
Relax with a drink on one of the many outdoor areas at the end of the day.
The pool is 10m by 5m, fully secured with child-proof gates and alarm (conforming to French legal requirements). It has the benefit of solar-powered heating and there is plenty of space to sunbathe.
There is a vineyard on one side of the grounds, and in other directions there are sloping fields, copses and woodlands.
Deer, wild boar, rabbits and hares live in the countryside together with many species of birds and smaller beings amid thousands of wild flowers and orchids.
The nearest village is Belaye, which is a 20 minute walk across the valley and is a tiny but thriving and historic community. Do visit it and view the magnificent curve of the River Lot below and the manicured vineyards contained within the loop.
Bélaye has a buvette (snack bar) in the summer where you can buy sandwiches, ice creams, soft drinks, tea and coffee and beers and wines, but like most small French hamlets there are no shops.
The nearest shops are in the small town of Prayssac, 10 minutes' drive away, which is well served with 2 supermarkets, plenty of specialist shops, a cinema, banks, a post office, doctors and a lively weekly market (Friday mornings).
The main town of Cahors is 30 minutes to the east, where there are some excellent boutique shops, restaurants, a vibrant cafe culture, a theatre, several cinemas and a historic bridge across the Lot.
The nearest vineyard is just at the bottom of the drive, 0.5km from the Chai, and restaurants can be found within 2km, but there are many more of both in the surrounding area.
There are plenty of opportunities for walking, cycling, canoeing, fishing and horse riding.
The nearest airport is Bergerac at around 1.5 hours drive. Other airports within easy travelling distance include Toulouse and Rodez.
