Description

This beautiful traditional C18th stone farmhouse sleeps 12. It is situated in a quiet rural location in 10 acres of woodland and pasture and is within approximately 1km of Prayssas. Beautiful stonework and exposed timbers are found throughout.

If you want to venture beyond the relaxing combination of peace and quiet, stunning setting and homely feel then a wealth of different activities, places of interest, day and night markets, cycle and footpaths, vineyards and restaurants can be found locally either on foot or by car.

The village of Prayssas boasts a vibrant night market every Wednesday during the summer months. There is ample parking in front of the house up the private drive. Clear footpaths guide you through the 10 acres should you wish to venture from the cool veranda. The modern kitchen is well equipped. A rear balcony catches the hot afternoon sun.

Outside & Swimming Pool
Front of the house has a large veranda with hammocks, eating area and raised drinks area that overlooks the grounds and barn. From the kitchen there is a wooden decking area with stairs that lead down to a very large patio area with seating/sunbathing overlooking the rear garden and swimming pool.

Access to the 18 ft above ground swimming pool with substantial wooden decking for further sunbathing is via a locked gate for security. The pool area is surrounded by a secure fence. (Please note that the photo of the swimming pool was the only one we had. It's just to give you an idea. It is now complete and secure).

Accessibility
Toupy is not suitable for wheelchair users. Families with very small children should be aware that there are several levels to be negotiated throughout the property, most with stair cases of "open tread" variety. Despite this, several stairgates have been installed to make life easier. Although an 82 year old relative frequently stays with us, the stairs are a bit of an effort for the elderly.

Area description

The beautiful village of Praysass has all the usual amenities you would expect - Butcher, Baker, Bar, Hairdresser, Corner Shop, Post Office, Pizzeria (eve only), Lunchtime restaurant and Riding School. During the summer months the village holds a weekly night market in the main square where you can buy food and wine from the many stalls and eat with the locals under the atmospherically lit lime trees in the village square. This event takes place every Wednesday and it is advisable to get there around 6pm to be sure of getting a table. Take your own cutlery, plates and table cloth and make yourself at home. Surrounding villages also have their own distinct version of the summer night market on different nights of the week. Music is played by live bands and families dance together until late. During the summer, the village also holds many other events.

Also in the village is the Riding School. Here you can hire horses for hacks and enjoy the surrounding countryside - if you are a seasoned rider, you can enjoy it at a faster pace! There are well marked Randonnee footpaths 100m from Toupy's front door - here you can climb up the valley sides through the woods and pastures enjoying the view at the top. The village is also accessible via a track from the house - it takes 15 mins and is fairly steep, but manageable for parents and children alike - An easier route is by car and takes a couple of minutes. Toupy is situated in a valley and has an undulating well-made road that is great for family bike rides. 2km down the valley there is a lake and campsite where you can hire boats and use the big outdoor pool. Seasoned mountain bikers can enjoy the steep climbs up the valley sides.

Agen is the local big town and is great for a day out shopping. The town also has all the usual supermarkets etc you would expect. If you wish to shop nearer to home there is a supermarket in Colayrac Saint Cirq or Port Sainte Marie.
