In general
 
 
The house is at the end of a lane that is only used by two houses and the occasional farm tractor. Because the house was originally a chateau it has the remains of a tower behind and a commanding view of the valley below. Unlike a farmhouse Le Coussot was built to be lived in on two floors by a rich family. It now has has three floors. There is an attached open sided barn (hangar), a disused dairy and a large detached barn with resident white barn owl family.
