The cottage at La Teulière
Scroll down for more photos and details of the interior of this cottage.


 

Looking down on the vast living room with original chestnut beams each one with roman numerals.
. On the left doors lead out to the terrace and stairs lead down to the bedrooms, bathroom and WC.
On the right dormer windows look out over extensive views.
The ceilings here are actually crooked as this cottage was formally an 18C barn.
 

The outside of this cottage in summer showing the stone roof and the new front window.
All 3 bedrooms are on the ground floor - the living room and kitchen are above with dormer windows.
Because the cottage is on a slope, the back terrace goes straight in to the living areas.

Looking out the window from the living room in spring.
The roses are blooming and you can see out over the little village and right down the valley.

The fireplace end of the living room with a comfortable lounge suite, books, CD, DVDs
and a really warm wood slow combustion fire - we supply the cut wood. 
During winter 2004 we have had a new window installed - see above beside the fireplace 
which lets in a lot more sunshine and gives a view back towards the old village.

The living room here is very large and we have a long table and 8 chairs -
Here we are all set up waiting for dinner guests -

- and when some of our large family stay, there is plenty of room for all of us - and game of Monopoly.
Although there is the larger table and chairs, we often like to eat at the small table by
the window - looking out over our sweeping views down the valley and 
over to the hills beyond - see photo below.
 
La Teulière is very high so the views are magnificent from all parts of this tiny village -
this photo was taken though our living room window at dusk. 

The kitchen has a double sink, gas stove, a new self defrosting fridge and microwave oven.
The glass door leads out to the terrace - great for meals outside with an Aussie barbecue.

When we are there, we often eat all of our meals out on the terrace. It's beautiful and so tranquil.

- and in autumn the grandchildren collect chestnuts, walnuts, mushrooms and cèpes to make great nut soups
and salads as this is such a wonderful region for fresh produce and cooking.  
We really enjoy having drinks with friends and neighbours out on the terrace.
   

Left - looking back towards the kitchen which is part of the living area but separated
by a half height wall. Right - stairs lead downstairs to a hall off which are
the three bedrooms, bathroom, WC and a laundry with washing machine and tumble dryer.

 
One of the three bedrooms - two have double beds
and the third has one single and another full size single which pulls out.

The terrace is a great place for eating outside - with an excellent large barbecue 
and table and chairs - doors lead directly into the living room and the kitchen.

We drive our car right up on to the terrace but you can leave several cars on the drive.

Looking back down our drive back towards the neighbours and the old village.
The roof of this cottage is most attractive - en Lauzes - large rounded slabs of schist rock.
