Overview

About the property

L'Olivier Barn in Vaumoure, Bouteilles-Saint-Sebastien, Dordogne, France - Rural location, ideally located between Aubeterre sur Dronne and Verteillac.

This tastefully converted barn provides 2 bedroomed accommodation with two bathrooms.

Built of local stone, it retains the charm and character of the original 1800s building but with a light, airy decor and style that provides a very enjoyable and comfortable holiday home.

The high-beamed open-plan living area allows you to relax in a quiet corner or to dine around the table. French doors from the lounge area lead to a shaded terrace where a table and chairs are provided. Further French doors open onto the courtyard leading to another terrace under the vines for those lazy lunches where you can barbecue, or just spend long balmy evenings overlooking the surrounding countryside.

The pool terrace area is where sun loungers are provided to relax and enjoy those lazy hot sunny days. A large shady pool house can be found here with additional seating. The barn is situated in grounds of approx 1 acre for your enjoyment, with flower gardens, vines, plum, walnut, hazelnut, cherry and fig trees. Private shady parking is situated within the grounds.

The owners live discreetly at the edge of the grounds and are available if required for any help and advice but otherwise leave you alone to enjoy your holiday.

About John and Nina Gibbins

We are John and Nina Gibbins.

John and Nina Gibbins purchased this barn in 2010

Why John and Nina Gibbins chose Perigord Vert

We have spent many years enjoying holidays in France, but always seemed to be drawn back to this region with the sunflowers, the fine wines and beautiful scenery. The local markets are just a joy to visit. Aubeterre-sur-Dronne and Brantome are just some of the wonderful places to visit.

What makes this barn unique

One of our recent visitors when shown round l'Olivier, barn told us that they simultaneously looked at each other and said 'wow'. This is certainly the reaction we were hoping to achieve when we decided to take on a barn conversion. We have endeavoured to make everything as comfortable as possible to ensure our guests leave rested and happy. We can honestly say that our guests spend more time at l'Olivier than out and about and we consider this to be the highest complement. The private pool and several seating areas certainly makes this a great place to recharge your batteries. The night sky looks like diamonds on black velvet, and can be the last image you remember as you drift off to sleep as they twinkle down from the skylight windows .
