The outside areas of La Jouanade remain sympathetic to the style of house and the region.
In front of the house there is the large swimming pool with plenty of sun loungers to sit back, relax and take in the stunning setting.
There is also a covered chill out area with an armchair
The swimming pool is a real focal point for holiday fun and we have made this area as accessable and enjoyable as possible.
The pool measures 10 x 5 metres and is 1.4 metres deep all around, with stairs for access.
It is located right infront of the house so ideal for keeping an eye on children.
As required by French law there is a swimming pool alarm.
Sun loungers and pool towels are provided.
There is a selection of inflatables and pool toys available too.
We all like to get away on our own once in a while and the covered outdoor area which we call the 'chill out' area is ideal for just that. With a comfy armchair and side table it is ideal for reading a book or simply sitting down to take in the stunning views.
Or you can choose to hang out in the hammock and peacefully sway the day away.
The gardens are a pleasure to stroll around and take in the beautiful scenery. At each time of year there is something new and exciting to see.
We also have many fruit trees including nectarine, cherry, apple, pear and fig.
To enjoy alfresco dining there is an extendable hardwood table with parasol which easily seats 6 people.
There are various seating areas around the house including a pretty round cast iron table and 4 chairs, and a bench in the meadow to have a 'sundowner' and take in the spectacular sunsets.
La Jouanade consists of a main house (the white part in the photos) which is where our guests stay.
Attached to the main house on the southwest side is a large stone barn which is currently used for storage, although there are plans to renovate this in the future.
There is also a smaller outbuilding away from the house on the northeast side which is used by the owners when the main house is rented. The owners are on hand to help with anything and will maintain the garden and pool.
The gardens are mainly laid to lawn and are south facing, ideal for sunbathing around the pool.
To the west side of the house is a meadow which we welcome you to explore, wildlife spot and to watch the intense and breathtaking sunsets.
