'Doulieu' dominates the hillside on which it sits and is the rarest of properties - a house with genuine class which you cannot fail to notice as you drive along Le Mont Saint and yet, once inside,is a superb family home with real warmth and character. Completely renovated, great care has been taken to ensure that the original feel of the house is retained and enhanced, all against the backdrop of delightfully maintained and immaculately presented terraces and gardens. With highly flexible accommodation that could offer up to five bedrooms and four bath / shower rooms, with numerous reception areas and a lower ground floor set up that could be used as a self contained wing, it really does offer something for everyone.
