This is a most beautifully renovated stone Aveyronaise farmhouse. The word exquisite comes to mind as you can see from the photos. No expense has been spared in its restoration. It comes with a total of 5 bedrooms, 3 in the main house and 2 in the guest house (perfect for B&B). There is a swimming pool, easily managed garden, a capacious work shop and the panoramic views are stunning.
It is situated deep in the heart of the countryside, secluded but not isolated being only 6 mins from the busy village of La Fouillade with its cafes, boulangeries and big supermarket. It is only 20 mins from the riverside market town of Villefranche de Rouergue which has a railway station with connections to Paris and Toulouse. Rodez airport can be reached in 60 mins.The house is approached down a country lane which ends at the property.

Spacious open plan KITCHEN/DINING ROOM (29 m²) with an abundance of original features, exposed oak beams, stone walls and attractive tiled flooring, built in glass fronted cupboard inset into the original fireplace, handsome archway to the staircase upstairs; the kitchen is of high quality with Falcon Range cooker, granite work tops, island breakfast unit, double ceramic butler sink; the kitchen leads to UTILITY room with CLOAKROOM with WC and wash basin.
