"Absolutely fantastic holiday in perfect location. Fantastic house, fantastic weather and fantastic wildlife".
Malanche is a long, single-storey farmhouse in a traditional pinkish colour with a Provencale-style roof. Various creepers grow up the walls and over the large west-facing terrace where one can have lunch/dinner and watch the setting sun.
The main house sleeps 8, and the layout makes it excellent for 2 families to share. One one side of the house a double bedroom and twin bedroom share a large bathroom with shower, whilst on the other side there is a double bedroom with en suite shower room and a twin room with an adjacent shower room. We have a travel cot should you need it. (See annexe page for more space.)
"Fantastic Kitchen ! A Home from home with so many added extras".
The large and extremely well equipped kitchen has a big table for indoor eating, dishwasher, drinks fridge, larder fridge, freezer, electric food processor, coffee maker, juice squeezer, etc. plus ample cutlery and crockery.
The lounge has a traditional provencale fireplace and plenty of seating. An eclectic range of books and various board games are available.
At the back of the house there is a small courtyard (which houses a full sized table tennis table) and off this there is a laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer (though we prefer you to dry things on lines in the sunny courtyard.
The large heated pool with adjacent gardens is at the South end of the house hence catches the sun all day. To comply with French law we have a roller blind style safety cover - but it is up to you to make sure it is used if you have non-swimmer children.
There is a double garage at the front of the house which also stores the barbecue, sunbeds, boules set, gardening tools and free firewood for spring or autumn tenants.
I am afraid broadband/wifi hasn't reached us yet, but mobile reception is now usually OK. There is also a land line phone for your use (we only charge you later if your section of the detailed bill is over 20 Euros).
