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) was renovated in 2013/2014 to provide a spacious and a large family villa sleeping 8 with its own private pool added to the large rear grounds in 2014 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.
