Living Spaces

A delightful living space. Cool and shady in the summer, warm and cozy in the winter: all year round comfort.

The living area, lounge-kitchen-dining room, of  ‘la Maison dans les Champs’ is 80 m2 with a cathedral-like structure, exposed natural stone, whitewashed walls and antique stone floors and gives an overall feeling of serenity and peace.

The overall effect is that of a harmonious combination of elements of the original farm with the conveniences of today : dish-washer, ceramic hob, extractor hood, electric oven, microwave, fridge-freezer, toaster, electric coffee-maker, food-processor, kettle, juicer, laminated worksurface, storage cupboards.

The white tableware is stored in an antique sideboard which separates the kitchen area from the dining room.
