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.


The medieval village of Caylus, 4 kms. away, has a good garage, a bank, a post office, 2 bakeries, restaurants, 2 supermarkets, 2 street markets a week. There is a good library, a mediateque, tennis and table tennis clubs. If you are interested in history, art, natural history or gardening this area has inexhaustible resources. Housebuilders can find their materials nearby and there are good artisans in all trades. Tourism is naturally important to the local economy but the summer invasion of visitors is not disruptive. St Antonin Noble Val , 14 kms. from La Barrière, is another medieval village of great charm, with an outstanding Sunday morning market full of local, seasonal produce. It is situated on the Aveyron river where canoeing is popular. There is also a cinema showing many international films.

The Old Forge was a blacksmith's forge in the middle of the 20th Century. His main activity was making shoes for working cows, a craft that was traditional in those days. During the 2nd World War he was obliged to repair German tanks and other equipment. It now has a level concrete floor throughout, electricity and hot and cold water.


The Little Barn gives scope for major restoration. The stonework is largely intact and of superb quality, much respected by Les Architects de Bâtiments de France. It would make a superb little dwelling for two people.


The whole site now has many different areas of mature trees, shrubs and climbers established over the past 25 years. The Walled Garden, enclosed by stone walls well over 2 metres high, is an intensively planted and intoxicating mix of flowers, fruit and vegetables. Regularly open to the public, it is featured in a book called “Dream Gardens” published in August 2015.
