About Emma and David Barton

My husband and I moved over to France in June 2011 and started renovating our property on the 1st July 2011, it took us 1 year and 1 day before we moved into the property. We took our first Bed and Breakfast booking in September 2012 and haven't looked back since. There have been lots of challenges but we don't regret it and can't believe how quickly time goes by. contact: emma-david@hotmail.co.uk

Emma and David Barton purchased this farmhouse in 2010

Why Emma and David Barton chose Vix

The property has a secure car park and has a walled garden making it both private and secure for families with children. We are located in the centre of a small village with easy access to local amenities. Award winning butchers and bakers within a minutes walk.

We are within easy reach of La Rochelle, Ile de Re, Fontenay-le-Comte, Vendee beaches, the forest of Mervent and one of the most beautiful villages in France, Vouvant.

The area is filled with canals and therefore very flat perfect for cycling, walking or even just taking a picnic down by the river. There is also a local bus service from Vix to La Rochelle which will take you through some of the local villages and providing a lovely afternoon's adventure.

Vix also offers two local award winning wine producers with wine tasting available.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Private heated swimming pool, private patio area with a charcoal BBQ, own access

English TV and WIFI throughout the Farmhouse

Guestbook comments from the owner

Emma and David have a lovely home set in a quiet but ameanable village with a shop, tabac, butchers, bakers and a friendly restaurant. The beaches are a short and easy 40 minute drive away. The house is stunning with lots of space and well equipped kitchen. The swimming pool was lovely and warm. Emma and David are fantastic hosts and are there in the background should you need any help which is very reassuring, a truly beautiful place. We had a relaxing stress free week. Amazing!!!

Simply stunning property, great hosts, brilliant

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for more, property is extremely clean and fully equipped with plenty of space for us all. Bedrooms being all ensuite was a huge bonus along with free WIFI throughout the property and garden. We had a BBQ which was prepared by David and Emma and was excellent, it also gave us a chance to ask about the area and what there was for us to see and do, as it was we spent just about the whole week enjoying the private garden and heated swimming pool. Although the property is in the centre of the village it is peaceful, there is an excellent bakers and butchers at the end of the road which we visited almost every day. Beautiful property and we would definitely recommend it and return.

A lovely stay in a superb house

  • 5 of 5

Emma and David are great hosts who did everything possible to make our stay totally memorable. Both of them are also fantastic cooks, so meals were as good as anything you might hope for in France. In addition their house is very comfortable with all modern amenities, yet blends completely with the local environment - wonderful!

A fantastic B&B facility

  • 5 of 5

Two nights in a beautifully restored, spacious old property. We were looked after royally by our hosts, Emma and David. They could not have done more to ensure our comfort and enjoyment, including serving up delicious food (and wine!). Didn't get a chance to use pool, but it looked first class
