About the Owner

I have owned Ferouailles for six years now and have rented to some wonderful people during that time. I live in an adjacent barn with my own pool and dog Scotty.

He is extremely friendly but if you don't like dogs, he won't bother you. You may see as much or as little of us as you choose. There is exclusive use of the Courtyard, pool and surrounding buildings. I am available to help with any queries and to assist with recommendations for activities in the local region. I can organise chefs to cook, and an excellent beauty and holistic therapist, who offers a variety of treatments, to visit for the day. The information and prices are available in the Farmhouse. Where we are situated, you can make as much noise, or be as quiet as you wish!

Location

From the Owner

Ferouailles once belonged to a friend of many years. I visited for many years and fell in love with the location. High on a hill with magnificent views and total privacy, it was always a welcome break from a hectic business I ran in the UK. I watched Ferouailles develop with its two swimming pools and refurbsihed Farmhouse. Then came the barn where I now live. Since 2006 I have developed the remaining outside barns, into 3 double en-suites, and the project is complete. The area has been a favourite of mine for many years as it is steeped in history. I feel extremely blessed to have been able to buy the property with its land, and am looking forward to many more years here.
