About Le Chalet Secret
A chalet-style 2-bed single-storey detached cottage (gîte), newly renovated and very private. Access is off the road, through an electric gate. The outside consists of private parking for two cars, then a huge private courtyard of about 150m² (1500ft²), half covered for shade, half open to the sun. Use of our 10x5m heated pool next door from early May to end September. The owner designed and managed the construction of the property herself, with people of reduced mobility in mind, particularly wheelchair users.
There is a concrete ramp access to the property, with a turning platform of 150x180cm. All doorways are 90cm wide and there is a large turning space in the middle of the building to enable easy access to all rooms. There is a grab bar in the shower, plus use of a shower chair, and a disabled regulation height WC.
The property itself is newly renovated in a modern Scandinavian chalet style, and is about 90m² (900ft²) in size, with a 40m² living/dining/kitchen area, large hallway with cleaning cupboard (with iron, ironing board, mop, bucket, vacuum cleaner etc) and utility nook (with washing machine). The modern bathroom (c.8m²) with huge walk-in shower (remember, with grab bar and shower chair) and WC lies off this (with wide sink, surfaces and heated towel rail).
Two bedrooms (both about 15m²) are separated by the bathroom for intimacy; one is a double room to the front of the property, with 1.8m sliding doors and shutters, sloped exposed beamed ceiling; double bed, bedside tables, lamp each side, desk and chair, built-in wardrobe. The other bedroom lies to the back of the property, another (slightly lower) sloped exposed beamed ceiling, twin zip and link beds which can either be used as two singles or zipped together to make a divinely comfortable super king size bed (6ft). There is a wardrobe, chest of drawers and desk in this bedroom.
The kitchen is fully equipped - cutlery, crockery, cookware, utensils, chopping boards, plus kettle and plunge-style coffee pot. Gas cooker with electric oven, extractor hood, microwave, full-size integrated dishwasher, full-size fridge with freezer section. One and a half sink with shower tap. Table and seating for four. There is also a modern glass desk and chair. The chalet has a really fresh, light and clean feel to it!
The living area consists of a sofa, armchair, coffee table and TV, DVD player and Sky+ box. There is a really good speed wifi connection too. All this is set off by the 3.6m long tri-pane sliding doors, configurable so you can benefit from 2.4m of an open door at any one time; left or right or a bit each side! This really gives you the benefit of the inside-outside blurring of space.
Facilities and Features
Bedroom 1: 1 Double Bed, Cot available
Bedroom 2: 2 Single Bed, 1 Cot, (twin beds make a king when zipped together, cot available).

Exposed wooden beams in the sloped ceilings of both bedrooms add to the chalet feel. The double bedroom has 1.8m wide sliding doors with access onto the terrace/courtyard. The twin/super king room has a window into the main house's garden - with no-one overlooking as there is a lot of greenery between it and the house!

Note from owner: "We live in the chalet in July and August ourselves while we rent our family home next door out. The chalet is therefore available to rent from September to June. Please feel free to use our pool if you are renting within its open months - we have just installed pool heating so the pool is totally warm and lovely from May to September (reflected in rental prices). We've also just invested in a salt-water ionising system (which doesn't mean the water tastes salty!) which leaves your hair and skin feeling amazingly silky soft! (NB the pool is not open in March and April)"
