About the Property:
This characterful property is located on terraced grounds up on the hills above the magnificent St Cassien Lake (3km). The real and undeniable attraction here is the outstanding views. The superb panorama over the lake and surrounding hills can be enjoyed from a number of locations including the private terraces of two of the bedrooms, the pool area as well as the main covered terrace which is the perfect setting for relaxing or dining al fresco by the pool.
Villa du Lac is also an ideal location for those seeking a more active holiday with activities such as walking, windsurfing, boating and many other water sports available on and around the lake.
For your enjoyment there are a number of sunbathing spots around the pool or on the terraces but also a terrace at the back of the house allowing you to cool off when it gets too hot. The terraced grounds are made up of pine and oak trees and the covered summer kitchen leading to the pool is a sheer delight!
