The massive historic walls of the house guarantee an agreeable indoor climate all year round: cool during summer and comfortably warm during the pre- and after season. Open doors lead to the covered veranda that stretches the entire south side of the longère.
The Lounge Area:
Maison Pouyteaux has a very large lounge / dining area for gathering indoors, with easy access to the veranda, the pool area and the large state of the art kitchen.
Adjacent to the living area is the fully equipped kitchen, including 5-burner Falcon stove with large oven, 2 dishwashers and an American style refrigerator. There is a coffee station with Tassimo machine and coffee percolator. This kitchen is a fantastic space to conjure up some wonderful meals and sociable enough for the whole family to be part of. It has been equipped to cater for large parties. The kitchen is very light, with french doors opening to a terrace, ideal for morning coffee and lawn where you can watch the sunset over sunflower or wheat fields while sipping your glass of local wine.
The Entrance Hall:
This is a pretty area and from here you can access both the East wing and the West wing of the house. There is a downstairs WC here.
Off the entrance hall towards the East wing there is a further 'snug/living room' with comfy chairs, TV and DVD players. There is also French and British free-sat. There is also a huge selection of DVDs available.
The outside veranda that runs the entire length of Maison Pouyteaux is where most meals will be taken. It is the perfect spot to languish watching the spectacular sunsets, listening to the birds, or reading a book while sipping a glass of local wine. From the veranda, you have access to the lounge/diner in the West wing, the entrance hall, and the snug/TV room on the East wing of the house.

Garden, Pool and Pool House.
With mature trees and landscaped front garden, this provides an idyllic place to relax and enjoy the surrounding fields of sunflowers, woodlands and vineyards. The surrounding countryside is easily accessible, with footpaths alongside neighbouring vineyards, sunflower fields and woodlands.
The beautiful salt water swimming pool is private and maintained by a professional pool company. The pool has a state of the art, solar controlled pool cover, which when closed ensures that it is safe with young children around. The pool cover must be closed overnight by the house residents. There are 12 sun loungers for around the pool on the sunny terrace - this is a perfect place to swim, unwind, catch some rays and relax. There is a covered seating area overlooking the pool where you can relax and take cover from the sun.
There is a separate pool house with its own covered terrace (another perfect place to watch the sunset) and a games room. There is a full size table tennis table inside and a TV and DVD player, with a selection of DVDs for younger children, so they can be in the shade and out of the sun. There are multiple bean bags for them to lounge on, and also a small table and chairs for arts and crafts.
