About Adrian Bowcher

Adrian and Heidi Bowcher own this property. We have improved it considerably since we purchased it and intend to invest a great deal more over the next few years. We love this house and we intend to keep it in the family for many, many years. We have modernised the house in terms of its facilities but retained its rustic French charm. It is ideal for relaxing and unwinding but also we have put in lots of games and sports equipment. The pool is state of the art....you can even drink the water!...and with the open barn running along side it.....blissful sun bathing. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Kind regards.

Adrian Bowcher purchased this farmhouse in 2011

Relaxing and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at this lovely farmhouse. It is in a very peaceful, rural area. The views were lovely, the pool was gorgeous. The farmhouse is spacious. We would definitely recommend this place to others. We enjoyed the farmer's markets, nearby canoeing and had some lovely meals in Marciac.

Fabulous French Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely farmhouse in August 2014, and had the most amazing stay. The house felt welcoming, very homely.

The bedrooms were incredibly spacious and to add to that we had a lovely newly fitted en-suite with a great big shower.

The kitchen was awaiting a refit at the time, but even so we were able to prepare all meals easily, as it was also very spacious. In fact every room was much bigger than we had expected.

The tv room was comfy with plenty of room for us all to relax after long days in the sun.

The outdoor area was one of our highlights. The freshwater swimming pool is brilliant. no worries about the children not liking any chlorine, as it is UV treated. The open barn that acted as a games room, sun shade and outdoor bar had everything we needed. Some really lovely sun loungers and a table tennis table stopped the shouts of "I'm bored!" from the children.

We cannot recommend Adrian and Heidi Bowcher's farmhouse highly enough and cannot wait for our return visit in a few weeks' time.
