La Vigne (The Vine) - 3 bedrooms  
 

This self catering gite incorporates the remainder of the stables and the former hay barn. This was originally an open fronted barn used for storing and drying the hay and straw. The double height front has allowed us to create a very light and airy feel to the downstairs lounge with French windows across the whole width. The kitchen has been opened up to the eaves and is equipped as the others with the addition of a dishwasher and a large dining table for up to 8 people.

The main entrance is via the double doors into the dining area from the private patio which on this gite is at the end of the barn. The patio is fully block paved and bordered by the garden wall on two sides and fencing and trellis on the third. Besides the outdoor dining furniture there is also a large barbecue built into the old chimney on the outside wall.

 
   

The first floor is reached via a reclaimed and refurbished oak staircase leading onto the mezzanine lounge area with a full width made to measure balustrade cut on site from reclaimed oak overlooking the kitchen. The mezzanine also has a window looking out to the garden and fields beyond. At the front is the master bedroom which like the lounge below, has full width French windows with Juliet balconies if you fell like a grand romantic gesture.

Through the wide but low passageway is the main bathroom and a large bedroom that can provide flexible accommodation with one double and a single/cot or up to 3 single beds. The bathroom has a full size bath with shower attachment, vanity unit with washbasin, W.C. and a shower cabinet with extra large shower head and power jets.

On the ground floor and reached via a passage from the dining area is another double bedroom with an en-suite wet-room, washbasin and W.C.  This room is ideal for guests with restricted mobility as it is all on one level with its own entrance direct from the courtyard, wide enough for most wheelchairs.

 

In general

The 3 self catering gites have been created with a sympathetic renovation of the ancient barn which was originally in four separate parts.

 

As a result the layout has largely been dictated by the thick stone internal walls. To maintain the traditional rustic feel of the barn, we have used as many reclaimed materials, local oak and limestone as possible.

All done to offer you that authentic self catering holiday in France you have been looking for!

 

We have furnished our gites in a traditional style wherever possible and have tried to cater for all types and sizes of groups but we have spare items of furniture available should you need something extra. We also have travel cots, high chairs and stair gates but please let us have your requirements in advance so we can ensure availability.

 

In each lounge area we have provided a television with UK Freesat channels and DVD/CD player, comfortable sofas, easy chairs, rugs, occasional tables and bookcases with a decent supply and variety of books from the many we have gathered over the years.

This was apparently a dwelling at some time, perhaps for farm workers or more recently when it was used for furniture production, one of the cabinet-makers.
