An idyllic holiday cottage built as a farmhouse in the mid-19th century, Bladanel is set on a hill overlooking the beautiful Courbiac valley and with panoramic views of the 13th century Bastide town of Tournon situated high on an outcrop of rock. Tournon is 2 km away with shops, bank, pharmacy, and good restaurants.
Bladanel itself is one of half a dozen houses in a small hamlet. The others are farms (with delightful French inhabitants) and a couple of holiday homes owned by British or Dutch families. Bladanel is managed by British couple who live in a nearby village. Bladanel provides ideal holiday accommodation with its garden and 10 x 5 metre swimming pool with a pool heater (if required) and heat-retaining cover. To the south side of the house is a tiled awning providing relief from the heat of the sun. From the hallway, there is a small well-equipped Kitchen with all the usual facilities including a washing machine, microwave, and dishwasher.
There is a large sitting/dining room with exposed beams and a wood-burning stove in an open fireplace. Double doors lead out on to a paved terrace with the pool below. The bedroom on the ground floor has three single beds, and there is a shower room with shower, basin, and WC. The upstairs bedroom has a king-sized bed and en-suite bathroom with bath, basin and WC. Garden furniture and barbecue are provided, also duvets and pillows. There is a telephone, a radio/tape/CD player, a VCR and also a combined TV/DVD with "Freeview" UK TV/Radio programmes. There is a wireless broadband facility.
