A middle-class, rural property in some six hectares of parklands.

This residence is near to a village with all local shops required for everyday life.
A place with a rich cultural heritage and where numerous classical music concerts are held each summer under the Estivales de Puisaye banner.
This completely rural area is characterised by the diversity of its landscapes, its colours and the wealth of its architecture. It is also a land of undulating bocage countryside featuring irregular-shaped fields separated by hedges and ditches.
A little winding road makes its way to the property having passed through numerous deciduous forests, home to large lakes.
Verdant vegetation is reflected in a pond to be found on a lower level below the estate. A little gravel lane leads to high ground and the farm as well as to the outbuildings and the parking area. A house and a terrace, enhanced by a lawn parterre and various species of flowers, dominate the surroundings. The eye is inevitably drawn from there by the presence of an oak forest, bordered by a river which, meandering amongst the trees, partially flows into a very old lake.
Two lakes abound with carp, pike and many other species of fish. This section of the estate accommodates the owners two horses and is used a trotting course.
