This 70 square meter (230 square feet) gite was renovated in 2012. On the upper floor of a traditional stone house are 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a toilet, a fully equipped kitchen, and a spacious open-plan lounge and dining area. The living room opens onto a 20 square meter (215 square feet) terrace overlooking the vineyard which gives you total privacy. Guests also have access to a large 12 meter (40 feet) saltwater pool, a private garden, and a private sheltered barbecue area.

Lounge and dining room

The living area is bright and sunny with its white walls and double curtains to keep it fresh in the summer heat. It overlooks the vines on two sides and the beautiful garden of the main property through a glass double door on another side. It opens up onto the terrace. A glass and cast-iron table setting as well as some antique furniture provide French style and a cosy atmosphere. A large flatscreen TV with English and French channels and a DVD player (with some DVDs) are available for your enjoyment. Wi-fi is also provided.


Kitchen

The kitchen is well equipped with all necessary kitchenware to cook and lay out a nice meal with fresh produce of the region and Gaillac wine. It is equipped with gas stove, large fridge and freezer, combination oven, dishwasher, washing machine, and a vacuum cleaner. It has a smoke detector, an electric kettle, a toaster, a Nespresso coffee machine and plunger.


Flower bedroom with ensuite

The flower bedroom and its stylish ensuite bathroom with shower overlook the well-established flower garden of the main house. With its Louix XVI chest of drawers, it has a nice antique touch. Two single beds can be set up together or separately.


Blue bedroom

The spacious blue bedroom overlooks the vineyard. It is furnished with modern white chest of drawers and wardrobe. Two single beds can be set up together or separately.


Second bathroom

The second bathroom is next to the Blue bedroom. It has a shower, a toilet, and a wooden touch with its teak cabinet washbasin and evocative tiles.


Toilet

This extra toilet is separate from the bathrooms.


Terrace and barbecue area

You access the gite directly through an independent staircase leading to the terrace. The 20 square meter (215 square feet) private terrace will be your favorite place to rest, sunbathe, or dine watching the sunset. It overlooks hills covered with vines and woods, with Gaillac in the distance and the Pyrenees on the horizon. It is on the other side from the main house and very private. It is equipped with a table and chairs. It has a shaded area.

Downstairs, next to your own charming garden, is a sheltered area with table, chairs, lounge chairs, and barbecue.


Swimming pool and private garden

The 12 x 6 meters ( 40 x 20 feet) saltwater swimming pool was renovated in 2010. It is shared with the owner and available for your enjoyment from 9.30AM to 12PM and from 2.30PM to 6PM. Your private garden area of approximately 40 square meters (430 square feet) is next to the pool and secluded from the rest of the garden. It is equipped with lounge chairs, parasols, and has a shaded area.


Outdoors

You are more than welcome to stroll the 9 hectares (22 acres) of vineyards and woods surrounding the houses. There are different tracks for nature and bird lovers but you can also interview Christian who works in the vines (providing you can communicate in French or in his half-broken English). There are benches and chairs along the way if you want to gaze at the view or read a book quietly.
