Full Description

This historic house is a spacious, detached, three storey “maison de village” situated in the pretty little village of Madières. which is 12 miles from the market town of Ganges.
The earliest building on the site was the original village church, founded in the 12th Century, and extended twice in the 16th and 18th Centuries. The original church and bell tower now house a barbecue area in the garden and the walls of the church form the walls of the garden itself.
A presbytery was attached to the side of the church in the 17th century; this now constitutes the oldest part of the house, with massive beams, and houses the sitting room (top floor) and guest suite (sitting room with terrace, bedroom, en-suite bathroom and wc).
The Church was deconsecrated in 1830, and an auberge with stables was built onto the front in 1834. The old auberge and stables then became the “newest” part of the house - and this was how it still was when we discovered it twenty-five years ago. We had it re-roofed, rewired and re-plumbed!
