Our opinion

The view is magnificent from the top of this family residence, full of charm as well as nooks and crannies. It is in an ideal spot for its residents to recharge their batteries. Set out in the peace and quiet along the lakeside, it is nevertheless on the outskirts of an authentic village, with all the shops and amenities required for everyday living, in a region renowned for its vine-growing. This house is still in its original condition and is, therefore, in need of some renovation works but advantage of its vast extension potential could be taken at the same time.
