Room-by-room guide of the barn

The guided tour

The barn is a painstakingly restored 3 en-suite bedroom house with a well appointed, hand made kitchen, sitting, dining room and extra wc. Handmade Moroccan terracotta floor tiles in all rooms, complete with under-floor heating or cooling in every room. It comfortably sleeps 6 adults and is child friendly.

Living & Dining Room

The main room of the barn is 6m x 11m, open to the rafters, and is divided into a dining room and sitting area. Leather sofas and club chairs surround the open fireplace and is the ideal lounging area for reading or watching television.

A large bookcase contains dozens of volumes and guests are encouraged to borrow anything of interest. Both French and English satellite stations can be viewed on the 32" wide screen television, which has a DVD player connected; and the Radio / CD player is equipped with a iPod docking point for playing your own music.

The solid wood dining table seats 12 and crockery, cutlery and glassware for 12 place settings is provided. A games cupboard is stocked with plenty of family amusements and the sit-up bar (stools provided!) separates the dining room from the kitchen.


The custom-made kitchen is traditionally finished with oak worktops, a Belfast sink and a fully operational wood-burning stove. All modern essentials are provided including an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, two fridges, freezer, toaster, kettle and coffee pot. A multitude of pots, pans, roasting trays and cooking utensils are also available.

French windows from the kitchen open onto a private terrace which overlooks the pool and garden.
