Maison des Bois is an authentic converted stone barn, built in the traditional long low style of the region. Enjoying a colourful private garden and an inviting heated pool, this is home from home in the Dordogne.
Maison des Bois is a splendid, spacious four bedroomed converted stone barn nestled in a tranquil hamlet in the gorgeous French countryside. With traditional oak beams, ochre stone walls and ceramic tiled floors, this property really does offer a truly wonderful place to escape. As you approach down the sweeping driveway, you are welcomed by the attractive gardens and the large sun-filled terrace with views of the private pool, where you can while away the hours reading a book or simply relaxing in the sun.
Inside, the high ceilings add grandeur and style, also ensuring a cool temperature even on the hottest days. The house has been lovingly restored with no expense spared, making the most of traditional features such as the large fireplace and oak beams, beautifully presented throughout. The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need for a relaxing stay.
The accommodation which is mostly on one level boasts four en-suite bedrooms, a comfortable lounge and a truly wonderful kitchen with a large farmhouse table. This really is a fantastic place to enjoy a family meal after a busy day exploring the Dordogne. The three large French windows from the spacious lounge lead out onto the extensive gardens, terrace and pool. Why not enjoy a glass of wine or two as the sun goes down.
There are picturesque walks from the door and if you want to explore a little further the nearest inland lake with a beach (Lac de Gurson) is only 4km away. Nearby are the beautiful towns such of Bergerac, St Foy-Le-Grande and St Emilion, where you can discover authentic French markets and vineyard tours.
A truly wonderful holiday awaits........
