Set in the sweeping countryside just 5 minutes from the charming town of Duras, this beautiful, architecturally-designed country house, with its delightful garden and unique swimming pool, is a serene retreat. Its location on a hilltop offers stunning 360-degree panoramic views.
The extraordinarily bright, single-storey villa was designed by a Dutch architect who managed to capture the beautiful, lush landscape within the total privacy of the garden, swimming pool and residence. He blended it into a beautiful property, where everything is just right. It was formerly the holiday home of a famous dutch pianist, Louis van Dijk, whose grand piano still stands in the living room. The peaceful, romantic atmosphere of the villa and its surroundings were a major source of inspiration for the famous pianist. A place to feel right at home.
This spacious (225 m²) holiday villa offers a high-quality, compact, fully-equipped kitchen, a living room and a dining room that all lead out onto the terrace and into the garden. The numerous patio doors open up, making it very easy to enjoy an indoor-outdoor lifestyle. The architecture, featuring wooden beams, vaulted passages, alcoves and walkways, is a nod to the past but with modern touches. The atmosphere is warm and soothing. The living room, for instance, has a beautiful high beam ceiling and is equipped with all modern conveniences such as TV, DVD, Bluetooth speaker and Wi-Fi. The three bedrooms each have their own bathroom and French doors. These lead to the beautifully landscaped garden with plenty of mature trees and plants and a nice lawn. Next to the house, the lovely deck invites you to relax with a good book or refreshing drink beneath the canopy. The lounge opens onto a charming dining terrace where you can enjoy tasty dishes straight from the Weber BBQ under the covered pergola.
The absolute highlight of this holiday home is the magnificent swimming pool! It measures no less than 12 x 5 metres and has a unique shape with a beautiful sun terrace surrounding it. At the end of the pool, an eye-catching designer waterfall makes it even more appealing to take a refreshing dip and to savour the view which stretches as far as the eye can see.
