ABOUT

 

ABOUT

La Couronne, a three double bedroom property (the top one will no longer be in use), was first renovated by us, Roy, who was a professional builder in the UK and Melissa, now an amateur watercolourist, in 1996 and rented to holiday makers from 1997 until 2010.  In 2019 we renewed and extended the roof over the patio area to create shade and a substantial amount of work was done to the patio area and around the pool, as well as interior work to update the whole property.

La Couronne has been renovated and cared for with couples and whole families in mind who can then relax in the knowledge that those who need a little extra special care and attention can also enjoy the benefits that La Couronne has to offer.  

Almost the whole property is one one level.  The only external steps from the property lead down to the car park from the utility room but the front door is level with the road for accessibility. There are also stairs to a small mezzanine for office use or play.

The 11.5m x 5m swimming pool has a 0.9m flat shallow end with corner steps.  There is a 2.4m hopper shaped deep end suitable for diving with ladder access.  The fence has a self closing security gate.  There is a covered outside shower and toilet next to a built in barbeque.

We are in the neighbouring bungalow sympathetically designed and built by us which is completely separate with its own access and a high portugese laurel boundary hedge to retain privacy.

There are no neighbours overlooking the property and Roy and Melissa own the surrounding grassland and oak wood where wild flowers including  daffodils, orchids, ophrys and sage can be seen in the fields through the early months of the year and deer, hare and numerous birds and insects throughout the summer.
