Looking for some thing a little different? This charming home may be what you are looking for as it is built backing into your very own cave! Offered mostly restored with some refreshing and finishing off works to do. This unusual home will be ideal for those seeking a low maintenance holiday home or full-time residence. It comes with 2 double bedrooms, spacious living dining room, fitted kitchen, oil central heating and is part double glazed. It benefits from a mains drains connection. Gardens to the front, space for a terrace to the rear, garage, workshop, store and another little cave dwelling plus a separate garden across the road. Views over the lavoir and village.

Walking distance from the house is the pretty village where there is a bar restaurant that also serves as the local shop. Set in an area known for its countryside and scenery, you will never be far from walks, cycling paths and pretty villages to explore. Lying to the south of the famous Loire Valley where historic towns like Tours are less than an hours’ drive. This is the perfect spot in France for those who want to sample true France!

Conveniently situated for easy access to the UK with low cost flights available at Tours & Poitiers both about an hours’ drive. The closest ferry port is Caen, easily reached in under 3.5 hours and with year-round daily crossings to Portsmouth

Door to front, another through to the lounge and a further door to the utility room.

Store room – with the boiler and storage space. Door through to the cave. Needs refresh.

Gardens / Outside – To the front you have both a gated drive entrance and gated footpath entrance. All enclosed and walled so afforded a good degree of privacy. Planted with roses but in need of a light refresh. There is an old outside WC. Space for dining table and chairs.

To one side are some small outbuildings and a log store.

Garage / Workshop – with light and power. Loft space above – may lend itself to conversion.

Door through to the cave

Cave – measure approx. 90m2

Separate garden / parking area with open sided tin barn – bit overgrown when we visited. Leads to another small cave with door and window!

Separate Garden 2 – Just across the lane is a good-sized walled garden – laid mostly to lawn.
