INSIDE The house is arranged over two floors with the upstairs split into two parts and accessed by independent staircases. The first staircase leads up to three bedrooms, one ensuite bathroom and one shower bathroom. The other staircase provides access to two more bedrooms, with another bathroom. Four of the upstairs bedrooms have access to the communal balcony. The ground floor comprises a sixth double bedroom with en-suite shower and sink, a large entrance hall area with sofa, piano and WC. The kitchen features granite worktops, La Canche range cooker, fridge, freezer, microwave and all necessary utensils needed for family/group cooking. A large country table sits 12 guests. Finally, on the ground floor is a comfy lounge area complete with fireplace (free firewood), sofas, games, TV and sound system. OUTSIDE - The property sits within it's own grounds of some 18 acres within over 1000 acres of protected forest, a large outdoor dining table sits beneath a mature Fig tree providing shade from the sun. When not soaking up the views, the heated pool (10m x 4m) provides fun for all with plenty of pool toys/infaltables and diving board. Optional pool fence available for young children. Pool Room has toilet, sink and shower. BBQ is a traditional charcoal. Fruit trees are dotted around the property which guests can freely pick from (Apple, Fig, Grape, Pear). To the rear of the property is a large terrace accessed from the upstairs of the house or from the front patio area. Throughout the grounds can be found many other seating areas and hammocks. For children, we have an area under a mature Oak tree with swings and a 17ft long trampoline. The property's driveway extends for over half a kilometer where it joins a quiet rural road which makes for this to be an extremely peaceful location. By foot, various trails lead from the property's location, towards the villages and towns of Taurinya, Fillols, Prades, VilleFranche de Conflent, Clara and Ria-Sirach. Within sight is the Benedictine Abbaye of Saint Michel De Cuxa, a popular tourist location and venue for the famous yearly Prades classic music Pablo Casals Festival. LOCAL ATTRACTIONS The village of Taurinya is a 4min drive away or 30 min walk along a forest trail passing the historic church of St Valentine (Tour de Corts). The village has a small grocery shop and cafe, as well as highly recommended restaurant El Taller. To the West is the village of Fillols (10mins by car, 35 min walk) includes the well reviewed Cafe De L'Union . Prades (15mins drive) offers many restaurants, shops and two large supermarkets, as well as the historic Church of Saint Pierre, also Prades hosts a fantastic market every Tuesday. The list of things to do in the area is extensive, including hiking, cycling, electric mountain biking, horse riding, quad biking, beach at Vinca lake (with cafe and water wipeout inflatables), skiing, canyoning, rock climbing, fishing. Should not forget numerous historic sites, as well as caves and hot springs.
