Interior and Exterior Photos
The grounds measure 2700m², and are scattered with oak trees. There is a children's play area with a wooden house, swings and a slide.
The swimming pool (heated only with the solar panels) measuring 5 metres across and is 1.2 metres deep.
There is plenty of space to park at least three cars.
Very close by indeed (about 150 metres) is the river Viaur. A footpath leads from the house along the riverside, where you'll find a couple of beaches and shallow waters for the children.
This is a wonderfully tranquil spot, and lots of wildlife such as kingfishers and herons can be spotted here. It is primarily a trout river, and permits can be purchased just down the road in Laguepie (about one mile.)
Just on the other side of the river, canoes can be rented to potter downstream towards Laguepie, Varen and Saint Antonin.
Entry to the house is from the door on the wooden sun terrace (80m².)
This terrace entirely surrounds the front of the house, and has iron railings. It stretches 20m in length, and at its widest is 5 metres across. It overlooks the garden, the pool, and the children's play area, and has a view out towards the river Aveyron.
The property is also very modern in what it provides inside.
The superbly fitted kitchen, the luxurious, bright and spacious lounge, three bedrooms, two bespoke bathrooms, the huge sun terrace (and one behind the house).
To reconnect with nature, Les Chênes Eco-House is not connected to Internet or Wifi. However if you need a connection Free Wifi is available in Laguepie Center and acces to internet is available at Laguepie Librairy as an alternative.
At one end of the terrace is a door which leads into: An entrance hallway with a wardrobe, sideboard, andA separate WC.
As you pass through the internal door, you are greeted by the sight of the:Stunning lounge (80m².) The completely double-glazed frontage reaches right to the high ceiling (six metres), resulting in a beautiful bright and warm room.

Above all though, the room gives an overwhelming feeling of light and space.
The semi-open-plan fitted kitchen (16m²) is extremely well-equipped. There is a gas hob with extractor fan, electric oven, microwave, toaster and kettle. The central island has a sink, and there is plenty of food preparation surfaces. There are also many fitted cupboards for storage, and all of the cooking and dining equipment you should need.
