The salon - a place to relax and listen to music or watch TV
Situated above the downstairs bedroom this room interconnects with the new apartment and houses an elegant and copious lounge suite and a communications corner. The home office corner has a 'Livebox' internet connection, the house telephone and a colour printer.
The room has a modern 20Kw log burning room heater stove (there is an ample supply of logs beneath the external stairs). There is also a music centre and a stock of children's CDs and Video tapes. The Television, Video recorder and DVD player are for standard European PAL systems not the local French SECAM one. There is a "Freeview" box connected to receive UK TV channels.
It was from the sofa in this room through the French doors on the right that the owners saw the hoopoe pictured on the wildlife page feeding on the rear terrace.
