Large Villa with Private Pool in South West France
Maison Pyron, a beautiful Maison de Maître (manor house/villa) was originally a large working farm with several outbuildings, built in 1871 and belonging to the same family over several generations. Retaining many of its original features the property (250m2) has been renovated to provide a spacious and a large family villa sleeping 8/9 with its own private pool added to the large rear grounds next to the shaded barn with table tennis, darts and games. The house is furnished with a diverse range of beautiful antiques and objects and with stone and tile floors downstairs and renovated wooden floors upstairs, Maison Pyron remains wonderfully cool in the summer months. Le Grenier adjoins Maison Pyron on the far right hand side.

The second sitting room also retains the original tiles and large fireplace now with a soapstone Scandinavian wood-burning stove for chillier evenings along with one large corner sofa. You can watch UK and French TV and films from our DVD collection.

The second sitting room leads into the well-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine, fridge-freezer, oven, micro-wave and 5 ring gas hob with large kitchen table for 6, great for children's meals. Double doors open onto a large terrace with a canopied dining area, which comfortably seats 12-14 with BBQ and plancha and overlooks the pretty 'Four' surrounded by weeping willows. With remote-controlled electric gates and a large driveway there is plenty of parking space for several cars.
Bedrooms & Bathrooms
On the first floor you will find four bright and airy bedrooms (three are 25m2) comprising one king with private en-suite shower room with toilet and hand basin; one double bedroom; one bedroom with a double and single bed and a fourth bedroom with two single beds. The main family bathroom with bath, shower and hand basin is on the ground floor with a separate toilet next door and there is a further cloakroom with toilet and hand basin on the first floor. All bedroom have hand-restored wooden floors.
A big thank-you for such a warm welcome.
The house was wonderful and it has such a peaceful atmosphere which allowed you to forget the everyday stresses and relax and unwind. There was everything we needed to make the holiday glide along smoothly and being situated in a great part of France there was so much to offer. The pool barn was a good place to get some shade on warmer days and a ping pong tournament soon began. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring Saint Sever with the aid of the iPad loaned from the tourist information office and at only 5 euros - what a bargain, I would recommend it..!!
