Our detached holiday home is situated on a hill so the view of the surrounding valleys and the medieval village is great. With a bit of luck, there are sunflowers in the adjacent fields, but also the noise of the wind in the corn is a treat in itself. The house is cool in summer and furnished comfortably, but the absolute charm of Bladanel is the outdoor life ...
On the kitchen side of the house is the swimming pool (10x5m), shielded by the house and a large shed. The pool is descending to 1.50 m deep so you can swim to your heart's content, but you can also play ball games. The entrance to the pool is a crescent shaped staircase, the best place to read a book in the sun! You can relax on one of the lounge sofas or on one of the 4 sunbeds with comfortable cushions that stand by the pool. Would you like to eat by the pool? This is also possible if you place the picnic table on the large pool terrace.
Eating a fresh croissant in the morning sun on the platform under the grape is a must. If it gets too hot then you sit comfortably on the other side of the house under the roof (7x3,5 m) with a view of the medieval village of Tournon d'Agenais and the valley. There you can also enjoy the delicious BBQ (fixed BBQ with countertop and cupboard space) adjacent to the large table, so that the person who turns the meat is part of the rest of the group. From the terrace you can see the children jumping on the trampoline. They can enjoy the vast yard (2500m 2 in total) where you can play football, badminton or old-fashioned hide-and-seek. In the evening you can light a fire in the fire, pit on the large terrace, and enjoy the sounds of the owls, crickets and frogs. It's a bit like "living as a God in France".
You enter the house through the kitchen. The kitchen is 15m2 and practically furnished with a large fridge with freezer (10L), hob with 4 burners, a dishwasher and a combi microwave. There is more than enough cooking utensils, from cheese slicer to wine cooler, and enough space to store all groceries. The 6 person dining table stands in front of the large window that gives a view of the medieval village, the valley and the almond orchard (in the making). A nice place to sit on a less sunny day or if you have enough of the heat.
Through the kitchen you enter the hall which gives you access to all rooms from the ground floor. There is a bedroom with 2 single beds and a bedroom with a double bed that overlooks the pool. If you leave the shutters open, the next morning the sun will be your alarm clock. The bathroom and toilet, both recently renovated, are also accessible from the hall. The bathroom has a sink, large shower and washing machine.
From the corridor you step into the covered terrace where it is always good to stay. You can sit here from the sun, in the sun, at the fire or at the big table (6 persons), while the BBQ gives off its delicious smells.
Through the kitchen you enter the upper floor. In the most beautiful space of Bladanel, with the high ceiling and huge beams, is the romantic 2-person four-poster bed and a spacious wardrobe. The rest of this space (7x5m) is furnished as a living room where it is wonderful to stay on a hot or a less sunny day. From the comfortable sofa and chairs overlooking the valley, swimming pool or Tournon you can relax and watch a DVD or read a good book.
