A character property within a short walk of the medieval village of Nanteuil-En-Vallée, it has been restored with ecology and environment in mind. Reclaimed timber has been used wherever possible and at present there is not a sanitation system installed, instead a composting toilet. However, the garden opposite provides ample space should the new owner wish to install a conventional system. There's also an attached barn included.
