REDUCED: La Barriere is a 17th Century property lovingly restored over the past 25 years by its present owners. These farm buildings are situated on the edge of a village of 200 inhabitants that overlooks one of the most beautiful valleys in S-W France. The farmhouse has served as an outstandingly successful gite for 20 years. La Barriere is enclosed by high stone walls and thus is as private or as open as the owners choose.
In addition to the restored accommodation are five further rooms and a small barn ripe for restoration. The Old Forge (70 sq. metres) is an excellent, spacious workshop with a solid floor, electricity, hot and cold water and easy access to transport.
The Converted Barn. Built in 1731, the barn was converted to a dwelling in 2007. It is the owners’ home and doubles as an Art Gallery. It has a luxurious masonry wood-stove, extremely economical within this super-insulated home.
