3 Bedroom 19th century Restored and Extended House Midi Pyrenees France
Near Millau, a stunning lakeside property. Location, character and comfort - this property just has it all.
This south-facing, three large-bedroom stone-built house with a roadside outhouse, old stone bread oven, stable, vine trellis, has multiple terraces, two lawns, a vegetable garden, and prolific fruit trees, (all areas offering wonderful views of the lake and the Raspes). This is a high-class conversion of an authentic stone house (possibly a Baker’s house). The restoration has been made with a view to achieving a traditional look and feel with the benefits of up-to-date facilities. This property offers considerable comfort and space. Over three levels, there are 210 m² of habitable space, 180 m² of terraces, and a lovely walled courtyard.
This is a stunning lakeside property - ideal for boat and fishing activities. The house has mooring facilities and nearby boat -launching ramp with a local tourist’s summer beach only 200m along the lakeside road. During the summer there are boat excursions, weekend evening music events, bar and snack services, and a lifeguard supervised swimming area (none of which interfere with the peaceful enjoyment of the property);
