The cottage at Russan (Ste-Anastasie)

As you enter this cheery little cottage - which is really more like an appartment - you are in the
living /dining area with spiral stairs leading up to the mezzanine above - the bathroom
to the right and the main bedroom straight ahead.

      
Up the stone outside steps and through the small gate is the front terrace.
This is great for having relaxing meals outside as it is just outside the dining area and kitchen.
The living area looking the other way towards the kitchen and terrace.

The kitchen here is small but well equipped with a double-bowl sink, cook-top and small
oven below - fridge and microwave oven - excellent saucepans, cooking pots and utensils.

It is not a family sized kitchen, but we have cooked and served many excellent dinners for friends here.

   

Left - looking across the pine table and chairs to the spiral stairs
- note that these stairs are are not really suitable for very young children or elderly people.
Right - looking through the triple glass doors to the terrace.

Looking down from our terrace towards our two neighbour's gates
- a profusion of flowers and vines in summertime.
The carpeted main bedroom just off the living room with a window
looking out over our neighbour's courtyard garden.
 
Up the stairs is a mezzanine area with a couch, coffee table and chairs looking out over
the living room below. You can see that the ceiling up here slopes quite sharply a one side
- however this is an excellent extra living area in which to relax if there are extra people.
 
A door leads off the mezzanine into the loft bedroom with two single beds.
Once again the ceiling of
this room slopes down at one end and may not be suitable
for extremely tall people - however the other end is quite normal height.
 
The small window from the top bedroom looks out
over the soft ochre roman-tiled roofs and it is possible to see
as far as the Garrigues in the distance.

The cottage at Russan (Ste-Anastasie)

The cottage is on three levels with two entrances from the small impasse - the main entry up outside stairs
to the front terrace on the middle level - the other into the ground floor.  Inside all three floors are connected by
a spiral staircase. The cottage is in the most attractive pale stone of Provence, with shutters, doors and
windows in soft grey-blue, an approved colour in this region.

 Because of the spiral staircase, we feel that this house is not suitable for the very young 
or the elderly - and - as this is our smallest cottage, we restrict the number of people here to four
.

Double glazing and electric fans. Wall mounted electric heating. Electric hot water service.  
Parking outside the cottage or 100 metres away down near to the Mairie.

Middle floor

Outside steps lead up to the front terrace with outdoor furniture and a café type sun awning
which rolls out to cover the whole terrace, making this a great place for meals outside.
Triple glass doors open into the living room with stone walls, wooden ceilings and floors of terra-cotta tiles
plus TV, DVD player and CD player - lots of books, films and music.
The small kitchen has a fridge, microwave, double bowl sink, gas/electric cook-top with small oven below.
Carpeted bedroom with double bed. Bathroom with shower, basin and WC.
 


Ground floor

The spiral stairs lead down to a darkish room with a double bed which is mainly used just for our family
- then a passage leading to the street door . A laundry with washing machine & dryer is off this passage.
The ground floor does not get too much natural light as the windows are very small
so we do not include this floor as a sleeping area for rental.
 
Upper floor

From the living room the spiral staircase leads up to a mezzanine area with low table, couch and 2 chairs.
The 2nd bedroom comes off the mezzanine and has 2 single beds. 
Please note that the ceiling of the mezzanine and 2nd bedroom slope down to very low 
at one end and may not be suitable for extremely tall people - however the other end is normal height.

This house will take 4 people - however it must be noted that
this is by far our smallest cottage - and it is possibly more suitable for 2 people.
