Spacious Converted Barn With Pool, Felard, Riberac



Updated: 20-Mar-2016
Stone Barn in Riberac, Aquitaine / Dordogne, France

Spacious converted 18thC stone barn in a quiet hamlet 3 mins from the pleasant market town of Riberac. Huge open barn living area which is particularly cool in summer, 4 double bedrooms, 2 kitchens, 3 bathrooms, plus a further first floor living area and sun terrace. Own swimming pool with changing room, extensive gardens and vines. The open area barn roof is not lined (bare tiles) so air can pass through to the large sitting area (keeping it cool in summer), however the rest of the accommodation is lined. Please be advised that this is not a spotless holiday gite but our characterful summer home with a somewhat quirky nature and more nooks and crannies than you can shake a stick at, but that's why we love it.

Please note our changeover days are TUESDAYS, unless agreed otherwise.

About the Owner

We are a group of 5 friends from the UK and we own the barn together. It was purchased back in 1975 and we have worked steadily to improve it ever since. We make regular trips to the Dordogne to enjoy its tranquility - and the challenge of maintaining it.

Beautiful, rustic barn in a stunning location.

  • 5 of 5

The barn is a traditional French abode with a true rustic beauty. We fell in love with the charm and character of this lovely building. It is set in the beautiful small village of Felard, (a 5 minute drive into Riberac) and the huge gardens have fruit numerous fruit trees and are surrounded by fields and countryside . The large private pool is immaculately kept and enjoys gorgeous countryside views. The outdoor dining area under the walnut tree is a pleasure, and the overhead trees provide lovely shade on baking hot days we experienced.

The barn is exceptionally spacious and perfect for more than 1 family due to the layout. It is far bigger than it looks, it truly is a huge living space.

The surrounding areas have plenty going on and this is the perfect base for exploring this scenic part of the Dordogne. Will definitely return and would highly recommend to anyone.
