Thoughtfully renovated by the Owners, this delightful stone cottage retains many original vintage features, and the thoughtful furnishings successfully maintain the rural character of the house.
The gardens have some unmistakably English features - rose bushes and a quince tree among them, and the garden has several separate areas on all sides of the house making sun and shade available throughout the day.
For wine lovers, Pech d'Auzonne is a must, with the ground floor cave converted into a twin bedroom, the windows of which look out towards the buildings of a winery of the same name about 300m away.
With a very pleasant and happy ambiance, it is little wonder that Pech d'Auzonne remains high on the list of repeat bookings each year, and is popular with couples and families with older children alike.

Arriving at Pech d'Auzonne along a quiet country lane there is a hard parking area with ample room for 2 cars beside the fenced hedge of the pool surround.
The accommodation at Pech d'Auzonne is very simple, comprising 4 rooms: A Sitting room and an Ensuite double bedroom on the first floor, and a Twin bedroom and the Kitchen / Dining room on the Ground floor. All rooms have wooden beamed ceilings.
The spacious Master Double bedroom has windows overlooking the gardens, and has ample storage. The ensuite bathroom has a bath with shower over, basin & wc.
The Sitting Room has two comfortable sofas and a good sized woodburner set in a large traditional fireplace. With pleasant views over the garden, this is an extremely pleasant room by day or by night. The main entrance at the top of the stone steps outside opens through an original door of great character onto a 'bolet' balcony at the top of the stone steps, which being east facing, makes either a magnificent sunny breakfast setting or a shade outdoors from the heat of the later afternoon.
Leading from the corner of the Sitting Room, stairs go down to the ground floor. These lead into the Kitchen / Dining Room where ancient beams blend with pine kitchen units and furniture to give the true feel of a country kitchen. Equipment includes a cooker, fridge/freezer and a washing machine. A circular pine table and chairs complete the room. Off the kitchen is a downstairs wc with basin. Double glazed doors open onto the garden,
Through from the kitchen, a curtain divides the Kitchen from the spacious Twin bedroom, which has imaginatively been situated in the cave (wine cellar) of traditional vaulted construction with local stone all exposed and neatly pointed. This room, which also has a tiled floor, will usually be pleasantly cool during hot nights in high summer. Double glazed doors from this room open onto the grassed area outside.
With garden on all sides of the house, shade or sun can always be found: The roses and other planted flowers are a feature of Pech d'Auzonne, and all shrubs, trees and grass are very well kept. Double doors open from the Kitchen onto a small patio by a large, very private lawned area, walled on two sides.
Coming around the house there are mature horse chestnut trees offering plenty of shade, along with other younger fruit trees planted by the Owners.
The lane side of the house has numerous rose bushes planted which lend the house a very gentle ambiance, and these extend around the stone staircase up to the upper level.
The private swimming pool is in a hedged, fenced and gated enclosure ensuring both privacy and safety. The pool measures 10m x 5m and with a paved surround with poolside furniture makes this an excellent place to relax outdoors.
A barbecue is provided for outdoor cooking, and with excellent access from the ground floor kitchen outdoors al frsco dining is a pleasure at Pech d'Auzzone.
