The House

All the comforts of the 21st century with splendid, serene views across the Cerou valley

Welcome to La Maison des Oiseaux

When we purchased our house, it was a simple 1960’s stone cottage set in a large garden, in need of care and renewal. This can be a daunting project at any time, but undertaking a renovation from 10,000 miles away was an even greater challenge.

We were fortunate to find a wonderful team of artisans and an architect who gave the house a totally new design whilst retaining the essence of a village home.The property is built on the second tier of walls surrounding the village, and takes advantage of stunning views from floor to ceiling windows and a wide garden terrace.

“The moment we walked through the terraced garden and into the entrance hall, we felt comfortable and relaxed as we would when staying with friends. The house is a very welcoming home.”
