LA DOMAINE DE LA FONTAINE
On the right-hand side of the hall is the living room. This has been furnished with a comfortable sofa, easy chairs, a writing desk and a very large bookcase which contains a large number of books, perfect for reading by the poolside. There is a television with satellite receiver and a DVD player, as well as a stereo system with CD, tape deck and radio. French windows lead you to the outside, where a wide stone staircase takes you to the swimming pool and garden. To the right of the French widows is a sunken patio area, which is a ideal spot to take breakfast.
The L-shaped swimming pool is 7.5 metres by 3.5 meters and is entered via wide steps. The terrace beside the pool contains a BBQ, sun loungers and garden furniture. The garden, containing palm trees and other Mediterranean plants, captures the sun throughout the day and is completely private.

Bedroom 1 overlooks the courtyard at the front of the house and features an original marble fireplace (decorative only); it is furnished with two single beds, which can be pushed together to make a large double bed. This bedroom has built-in cupboards and a spacious en-suite shower room with shower, WC and hand basin and an electrically heated towel rail.

Located in the beautiful, canal-side village of Poilhes in the Languedoc region of the South of France, La Domaine de la Fontaine has been tastefully renovated to create a luxury holiday home. Featuring a private swimming pool, 3 bedrooms, each with en-suite shower, a terrace, sunken patio and entrance courtyard, La Domaine de la Fointaine sleeps 6/7 .
Recently converted from part of an old vigneronís house in the sleepy village of Poilhes, La Domaine de la Fontaine provides the perfect setting for a truly relaxing holiday. The building, which dates back 300 years, has been tastefully renovated to include all the modern conveniences expected of a first class holiday home, while retaining many original features. The house is entered via iron gates into a courtyard, which has been planted with typical Mediterranean plants. Through the front door you enter a hallway giving access to the rest of the house. On the left is the dining room, containing a large table and a large woodburning stove. Next to this is the modern, well-equipped kitchen which contains a gas cooker, electric oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, kettle and toaster. A large arch between the kitchen and dining room ensures that the cook and diners can converse during the preparation of meals.
