Our passion to find our Gite in France
We purchased Le Haut Genet in 1997 and this shows what it was like. The grass was 2 foot tall, it had not been lived in for over 2 years and frankly it was in a state.
We have progressively improved the cottage and tried to maintain the original features and quirkiness. The property was built in the late 1800?s and was used for generations as a farm, before being let to tennants for several years and ultimately being sold to us. This completed an 18 month search for the right property in the right location.
The cottage has been re-roofed, new shower and additional toilet installed, wood burner fitted, the garden tamed, many trees, shrubs and flowers planted, the stone barn extensively upgraded. It is in a tranquil location yet only minutes from the supermarket, bank, and the all important boulangerie (bakery).
Le Haut Genet (or Genest) means “the high broom”. It is an old stone built cottage with a slate roof. It is located on top of a small hill and it faces due south. The bulk of the garden (in excess of an acre) is at the front of the cottage and it is secluded being surrounded by fields with the nearest house 300m down the hill.
The cottage is in a very quiet, rural location, with undulating countryside. Excellent for enjoying a Bar-B-Q, glass of wine, and either reading a good book or having a really intense game of Trivial Pursuit, or boules…….
Outside there is a patio area with a large pergola, patio furniture, and plenty of room to play football, basketball, badminton, boules, etc.
