With a mountain background, walking, cycling, skiing, golfing, hunting, riding, paragliding, swimming, and prehistoric cave exploration are all within easy access. The friendly village has a weekly market, local shops, café restaurant, services and a school.
Wood-fired central heating (stove heats up to 25 radiators) has been recently installed. There are stone and wooden floors throughout. Wood panelling, carved wooden doors, fireplaces, high ceilings and well-proportioned rooms all feature.
On the ground floor: a stone paved hallway(15,80) with ceiling height glass doors,an imposing staircase(10m²), three receptions(21, 18 and 11m²), dining room(26,80m² with wood stove/boiler), well-equipped kitchen(15,40m²), a door and steps lead to the terrace(7,50m²), garden(about 150m²) and two outside ‘cellars’.

To the back/garden side, with views down the valley, two to-be-restored rooms(40 and 18,50m²). Also on this floor is a door to the attic and anterooms (potential for one or more secret hideaway rooms).
The attic : has enormous potential, there are stairs to the main attic area(120m²) and a smaller stairway to a balustrade to windows with views down the valley (currently closed up for later renovation). There is potential here for a roof terace with panoramic views from one of the highest spots in the village.
Most of the renovation has already been undertaken including work to the roof, electrical wiring, insulation, wood burning stove with back boiler (central heating and separate tank for domestic hot water). More work could restore this magnificent old house to its former glory. Ideal as a spacious family home, impressive holiday get-away, professional
