House for rent from £ 378/day in TarabelName/Address: Chateau Dufont
Recently restored in keeping with the original style – using red brick typical of the architecture so often featured around Toulouse – the house was originally built in 1810.
Chateau Dufont is flanked by two towers and a dovecote; the large windows give a well lit, airy feel to the building.
Comprising a main house (seven bedrooms) and neighbouring apartment (two bedrooms) rented together; the property is suitable for groups up to 18.
Fourteen adults plus children would be comfortable.
On the ground floor in the main house there are five double bedrooms that are spacious and tastefully furnished.
Three of these have en suite bathrooms and there is one additional family bathroom.
There are two entrances into the house; the first leads from the terrace through French-windows and leads into a long hallway; the second, sheltered by an old cedar on the opposite side of the house, leads to a bedroom with stunning, old tiled floor and large wardrobe.
The sitting room is furnished with armchairs and two sofas and contains a piano, wide-screen TV, music system and many books.
It features a fireplace, soft yellow walls with white painted panelling and lovely pine wood floors.
