About Paul Kearsley

I am a computer consultant, and I use this property as my main residency when I am not travelling the world with my job. I have put a lot of effort into this property as I like to enjoy it when I am there, and hope you will also.

Paul Kearsley purchased this barn in 2002

Why Paul Kearsley chose Lot-et-Garonne

I came to this area to visit a friend, I had never been to this part of France before. I feel in love with it, and decided this is where I would like to live and retire.

I bought the barn, because it was spacious, and it is ideal for parties. I loved the views. and because there were no neighbours close to me, I didn't have to worry about how loud I play my music or when watching action films.

The property is private and secluded, but with easy access to shops, airports, motorways and big cities.

There is great social life in the area, if you want to be part of it.

There are a great selection of excellent restaurants in the area, as it is in the gastronomic part of France.

There are many vineyards in the area, where you can sample the local produce

What makes this barn unique

I like the tranquillity, privacy and the views.

I really enjoy having my dinner on the patio next to the swimming pool watching the sunset on warm summer evenings

When my friends and family visit, having a spacious property means we are not on top of each other, and there are parts of the house and garden one can go to for solitary moments/hours.

Sometimes we have rowdy parties to the early hours of the morning, with the full knowledge we are not disturbing the neighbours, as I don't have any.

In the months of July and August on a Friday evening, there is the night market, where chairs and tables are placed in the village (Beauville) square. On the edge of the square the locals sell cooked food. Normally there is a band for entertainment.

Beautiful and peaceful area, lovely house.

  • 5 of 5

Such a peaceful area...the photos don't do it justice- you could stare out at the valley all day. House is really spacious and well equipped. Felt really at home there. Local area v quiet so you do need a car to get to supermarket etc. Such a special place to spend a few wks. Would love to go back.

Good and well equipped

  • 4 of 5

This is a property which is well equipped and well situated. It represents fair value for money and is ideal for a young family looking to stay put at a place with amenities (including pool) and not needing a lot of local night life. Deer, hares and other wildlife in the immediate surroundings adds a rural feel. We enjoyed it. The only negatives - not enough to spoil a relaxing week - were that the cess pit should ideally be situated a bit further away from the house (we sometimes experience related smells in the house, especially after rain). Also the internet connection is so patchy it is effectively redundant.

Lovely, relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

This was our second holiday at Petrussan and we loved it just as much this year. The house is amazingly well-equipped, very comfortable and spacious. The children spent hours in the pool and we all loved the pool table and the adults used the cross-trainer. This area of France is very beautiful and we have always found everyone to be very welcoming and friendly. We may be back for a third visit!
