Appletree Cottage

Stone and thatched chocolate box cottage - probably built 1680-1720. Fully modernised. There are two extensions to the cottage, one at the back is a double storey garden room. One to the side (not shown in photos) is a bedroom with en-suite and doors out to the garden.

We also have a three bedroom town house in Pezenas in the South of France which we can offer either instead of or as well as the English house. We have put a couple of internal photos (the outside is a bit dull).
