Take it outside! Homes for the most the perfect al fresco dining!

The raison d’etre of a home further towards the sunny southern half of Europe is that you can enjoy summers outside. Is there anything more ideal than a leisurely lunch on the terrace or sundowners on a balmy evening? From Brittany to Occitanie, here are four properties with lovely gardens offering plenty of space to enjoy with family and friends.

There are nearly three acres of garden to this lovely 9-bedroom property in Brittany’s Cotes-d’Armor with great income generating opportunities. Outdoor heated pool, ponds, stables, outdoor kitchen, garden gym – is there anything this doesn’t have?

It’s to the Poitou-Charentes where this four-bedroom property comes with a large, covered terrace with the beautiful wisteria invaluable in the high summer temperatures for outdoor dining. Or a chill after a dip in the 5.5m x 11m pool. The price tag is also refreshing…


On the banks of the river Dronne in the Dordogne, this lovely seven-bedroom property has lush waterside gardens as well as its own pool. It’s hard to know whether the inside or the outside is more impressive – but the little poolside bar around an olive tree is another outside highlight.


There’s a LOT to love about this property in the Midi-Pyrenees with gites, an above-ground swimming pool and beautiful wooded gardens overlooking stunning countryside – yet not overlooked.  Comes with a price reduction.
