Living rooms

La Busaneth has 2 living rooms providing space for everyone to enjoy:

The Salon.
The largest room in the house, this is the place where everywhere can come together. In the summertime meter thick stone walls keep the room cool and comfortable.
There are two elegant sofas, one of which is fold-out for extra sleeping provision if needed. On one end of the room is the dining area with a fold-out table and chairs that can seat 10. There is plenty of room and another table to increase the seating if indoors is where you really want to be. But the front veranda, long and covered, with a view of the garden and the sunset, is most likely the place you will be taking most of your meals.
In the winter, the salon houses the wood burner, so it is amazingly warm and cozy, the perfect place to while away the hours with a good book or play games.

The snug.
Cozy and intimate this room has a sofa, day bed and comfy chairs. It also houses the television, perfect for children or anyone interested in what TV has to offer. It has its own opening onto the veranda.

Kitchen

Recently created, this large kitchen has every convenience needed to prepare the best gourmet meals and a spectacular view of the garden and surrounding countryside. It contains a 5 hob Falcon range with a huge dual oven and Falcon range hood. There are 2 dishwashers to help manage the dishes of a large crowd. The refrigerator is a large American style with double doors above and large pull-out freezer below.

A painted dresser serves as the coffee and tea preparation area with hot water kettle, burr coffee grinder and milk foamer. There are enough glasses, cups, plates and cooking utensils to keep your chef busy and plates full.

Large windows and double French doors make this a bright, cheery kitchen. The outlook of the surrounding fields offers luscious views of the ballet of the local birds and the vivid sunsets.

An island in the middle of the room provides increased counter space for food preparation and seating for four at the bar.

Dining

The dining table is in the main lounge and next to the kitchen and easily seats 10 guests. There are also further tables outside of the house, you have options of shade or sun. There is a shady terrace to the rear of the house looking towards the pool and also a covered veranda to the front of the house. The kitchen French double doors open out onto the garden are West facing, the ideal place to sit and view the stunning sunsets over the neighbouring fields.

Utility room

The Laundry room has a washing machine, drying racks and a sink.

Children and Baby facilities

High chair and cot available. Please request at time of booking.

Garden and terraces

You have choices where to sit and eat outside, depending if you want the sun or full shade you have lots of options around the house.
To the front of the house is a covered veranda (South West facing) with chairs and a view over the front garden and rural views through the valley.
There is a small shady terrace to the rear of the house which is in full shade all day except for an early morning coffee watching as the sun rises (North East facing). The games barn has a veranda also (South West facing) which is an ideal spot to sit in the sun. Table tennis table under the shade of the mature trees.

Private heated salt water swimming pool

The gardens include a private heated salt water swimming pool, measuring 5m x 10m with full sun and wide, expansive flagstone terraces for lounging. The pool has an electric slatted cover which provides security for parents with young children.
There are four steps that lead you into the pool, the water depths are: 35cm, 55cm, 85cm, 110cm and is a uniform 1.4 meters in depth for the rest of the pool. There is a full width step the entire width of the pool, it is 35cm deep and ideal to sit on and relax.

Designed for ease of use and beauty, affording a lovely place to spend the day or evening relaxing with family and friends.

The swimming pool is immediately accessible from the salon. An adjacent covered terrace provides the perfect place for breakfast on cool mornings when it is bathed by the morning sun. In the evenings it is perfect for grilling on the large gas barbecue grill.

The games barn

A recently renovated separate games barn sits adjacent to the swimming pool. The barn measuring 4m x 7m it is the perfect place for children to play or maybe just a nice place to sit and read quietly in the shade. It has plenty of room for socialising and provides cover from the sunshine.
The barn contains chairs for relaxing and games. A covered veranda faces south and offers shade from the sun and marvellous views of the surrounding countryside. We personally think its ideal for afternoon cocktails or late evening sit and watch the sun go down over the fields.
