Les Bessedes is a large house made from 3 old farm buildings now joined together. It lies at the end of a 1km chemin, sharing this with one neighbour. The chemin is actually part of one of France’s longest footpaths, and w alkers have a right of way past the house. It has 7 bedrooms, mostly all with their own bathroom. Downstairs offers a reception room, a small but adequately equipped gymnasium, a games room with table tennis, a large (55ft) living room, a large dining room, a breakfast room, and a kitchen. Washing machine, dishwasher, and television are present. There is no phone but your mobile will have good reception if connected to European networks.

The house is kept simple but clean. It’s grandeur is its size. Land extends to many acres around the house. A local farmer maintains some of the land, do not be surprised by him on his tractor. The pool, at 12 x 6 metres, will keep you cool. Follow the footpath down through the woods and reach Chateau de l’Herm after 1.5kms, the nearest neighbour in that direction, a ruined Chateau with a delightfully quaint hamlet. You are unlikely to see the local sangliers (wild boars) which are almost totally nocturnal, but you may see biches (deer), chevreuilles (like wild goats), hedgehogs, kites, eagles, jays, cuckoos (April/May), lizards, toads, frogs, even an occasional salamander. The bats are harmless and may be found between the shutters and the house walls during the day time.

The pool is maintained and usable at all times. It is chlorinated to a recommended amount. The pump is set on a timer and does not need altering. Please note that the pool is now enclosed by an approved safety barrier and self closing gate as per French law introduced in 2005. This does not constitute a guarantee of safety.
