All overlook the church and all offer quite a lot of space. Of course, you have to pay for that exclusivity and space. We’ll come to that in a moment.

But for now, let’s concentrate on the place for sale here, which is a Type 67/68 and one that has been ‘remodelled’, although not radically. The listing and the architecture restrict just what you can do.

The basis of the reworking here is decoration with a colour palette based on Maisons Jaoul in Paris (by Le Corbusier) along with some updating here and there. But there is plenty of originality still in place. A quick glance at the bathroom will tell you that.
