By near Paris, we mean just over 20 miles from Paris, as far as we can see. Which is just about commuter distance if the road and rail networks are with you. The house itself dates from the late 1960s and is described as a holiday home – although there seems plenty of space for this to be a home min itself. At the price, so it should.

Not strictly a relic of the period, this place has undergone a significant restoration in 2003, leaving a place that’s faithful to the original design, but with the kind of finish you would expect of a modern home.
