House & Garden

The pigeonnier, summer kitchen and games barn are situated on the other side of the courtyard, to the rear of the house. The courtyard has a lovely old fountain, olive trees, solar lighting and lots of seating areas - a magical place for evening dinner parties.

The PigeonnierThis charming annex is only let with the house, never separately. It has a small kitchen and breakfast area on the ground floor, with stairs leading to the three floors above. The rooms on the first and second floors are bright, airy bedrooms with original stone walls. The third floor is a huge bathroom, with bath, separate shower, wc and basin. All the rooms have windows with fine views of the grounds and surrounding countryside.

The Summer KitchenThe summer kitchen is in a covered barn, opening onto the courtyard. It includes gas and charcoal BBQs, fridge, dishwasher and a chunky oak bar – “a bright summer kitchen, better than any we’ve seen” according to Alistair Sawday’s “ Special Places to Stay in France”. Room for upto 20 to eat inside, or dine by candlelight in the courtyard. Either way, it is just a few steps to the pool, or to the adjoining games barn for after-dinner snooker!

The Games Barn The main games barn has a full-size snooker table on the ground floor, and table football on the mezzanine floor, where various “outdoor” games (eg boules, croquet, cricket, skittles) are stored. A shower room with wc and basin is situated at the rear of the games barn, with a door leading to the summer kitchen -  ideal for guests dining outside or using the pool.

Within the grounds there are other barns. One is used to store the indoor/outdoor table tennis table, dart board, garden toys for toddlers and an assortment of bicycles. The Great Barn offers covered parking for 10 cars or more, and provides a wonderful space for weddings or events; details of local wedding planners, caterers, florists etc are available on request.
