Spacious French farmhouse sleeping 13 with a swimming pool and games room for family holidays near Albi

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Les Chataigniers, La Salvetat Peyrales, Midi-Pyrenees, France, sleeps 10-13 in 7 bedrooms.

Les Chataigniers comprises a range of ancient stone farm buildings arranged around a central courtyard shaded by a huge walnut tree. There is ample parking for several cars.

The farmhouse offers spacious accommodation, with 7 lovely bedrooms. Upstairs are 4 double/twin rooms (each with its own en suite shower, wc and sink) plus an extra single room, whilst on the ground floor, the family suite has one double room and another double/twin room, with shared family bathroom with bath, separate walk-in shower, wc and sink. Our largest bedroom can accommodate a third bed, and several rooms have space for a cot.

The sociable, open plan dining kitchen with its big extending table opens onto the wrap-round deck overlooking the garden. Here, a series of tables can be arranged flexibly in sun or shade; there is a large gas barbecue, plus outdoor lighting for evening dining.

Across the gravelled courtyard (perfect for a game of boules) is the games room, with snooker, table tennis, home cinema system, well-stocked bookcases and a selection of games and toys for all ages. A range of sofas and a huge floor area make this a fantastic "party room" for friends and family to get together. This room opens onto the fully-fenced pool area via double doors which are padlocked for water safety. In addition, we have a pool alarm which can be activated for extra peace of mind when children are around. The pool deck is equipped with loungers, sofas and armchairs and offers stunning views of the woodland below and our local village on the hilltop opposite.

Children will love the adjoining play lawn with its swings, slide and sandpit, and the meadow is great for ball games, or just for strolling, picking wild flowers and spotting butterflies. Adults may prefer to find a peaceful patch of shade and read a book! Help yourself to eggs from our chickens or organic vegetables from our potager.
