Property Overview

FCH894

Sold

With 4 bedrooms, a large open plan kitchen and sitting room, second sitting room and spacious bootroom, it is easy to feel swiftly right at home in this welcoming and peaceful spot.
Start your mornings at a big table in the kitchen with the windows flung open wide to the east facing courtyard and let the sun stream in to greet you. The shaker style kitchen has a large range cooker on which to make jams and compote from the fruit in the garden, and a large run for the chickens provides plenty of fresh eggs. In the evening enjoy an aperitif watching the sun go down over the west terrace or take an evening stroll past a number of picturesque Chateau found in the vicinity. 

Each of the four charming bedrooms has retained its authentic character, with thick walls and wide floorboards. Two of them look out over the pool to the open countryside beyond.
There is plenty to occupy any keen gardener, from pottering around the wildflower meadow to relishing in the established organic vegetable garden (raised beds). After fun splashing around in the large swimming pool, fire up the stone pizza oven and enjoy a meal under the canopy of multicoloured fairy lights and greenery on the east terrace or simply unwind with a long drink in the shade of the large barn  If stargazing is your thing, the skies here are unpolluted and endless - the number of ways to enjoy this property is multiple.

The Challose countryside is calm and quiet – but you’re still close enough to one of France's best known Michelin star restaurants, Les Pres d'Eugenie, that it can be reached within 15 minutes by car or a generous half hour by bicycle. The historic market town of Saint Sever, famous for it's 11th century Abbey and approx 10 minutes drive, offers a weekly market and all amenities, including the best secondary school in the department of Les Landes.
Finally, the vast beaches of the Atlantic ocean are reached within an hour and fifteen minutes making it perfect for day trips - enjoy cocktails in Biarritz, feast on fresh seafood in Cap Breton and discover surfing  at France's hippest surf resort, Hossegor.
