Newly Renovated Barn With Private Swimming Pool



Updated: 10-Oct-2016
Barn in Hautefort, Dordogne, Aquitaine/Dordogne, France - Peaceful Location With All Amenities Close By

Le Figuier was completed in the summer of 2013 and is a converted barn dating back to the 17th century set within 2 acres of land in the northern Dordogne. Hautefort with its magnificent Chateau is 10 mins drive away with Brive at 25mins and Perigueux 45 mins. It has been completely renovated using high quality materials throughout. There is a fully fitted kitchen (with American Fridge/freezer and high quality appliances) which is part of a huge open plan living space including dining area and comfortable lounge. The adjacent terrace overlooks the private salt water swimming pool (10m x 5m). There is a separate salon with flat screen TV (UK satellite and French Digital stations). There are four comfortable double/twin bedrooms (one en suite) and two further bathrooms.

The owners (who live in a separate house on site) are on hand to answer any questions and help in any way they can to make your stay as perfect as possible, however you will not find them intrusive.

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

In addition to being let on a fully self catered basis Le Figuier is available for house parties for special occasions including weekend stays out of high season. Catering can be provided as well as bookings at local restaurants including several Michelin starred venues in the local vicinity. It is possible to accommodate up to 12 people for such events using rooms in the main house as well as the Le Figuier

It is also a perfect venue for a residency for a music group and in the past has been used by the acclaimed vocal group Cambridge Voices as a base for a highly successful Dordogne choral tour in August 2013. The owners (both with musical background) can also arrange concerts in local venues if required.

Please contact us for more details and we would be pleased to help in planning the perfect stay whatever the event.

Further Details:

If revisiting the Dordogne region you will already have experienced the breathtaking countryside, beautiful towns and villages and mouth-watering cuisine for which the region is famous. If you have not visited this area before then you are in for a treat! Numerous chateaux, fortified towns, caves and prehistoric dwellings, and of course many restaurants, are a short drive away .

The local area offers canoeing on three different rivers and other water sports at a nearby lake with all amenities. Quad biking and hot air ballooning are on hand at the nearest town, Hautefort. Popular with children and adults alike is the velo rail (cycle carriages on disused railtracks) which is within easy reach.

Le Figuier is ideally placed for experiencing the best of the Dordogne but the regions of Correze, Lot and Auvergne are all within a couple of hours from the property - if you can tear yourself away from the pool that is!

?The owners will be happy to help you make reservations for restaurants and any other activities.
