Spacious Stone Barn Conversion, with 12x6m Pool & Garden Near Sarlat
A converted 18th century barn sleeping 6-7, situated in a hillside farming hamlet, surrounded by walnut groves, meadows and woodland. Spacious inside & out, and mostly on one floor.
Leave the family kitchen through French doors, to plan your day over breakfast on your secluded southeast-facing terrace. Halfway between Souillac and Bergerac, you have access to major vineyards, prehistoric sites, Sarlat’s gastro centre, and transport links. Or just drive 10km down the valley to explore the restaurants and markets of medieval hilltop Belvès, or 4km beyond to canoe on the River Dordogne, picking up groceries on your way home. Or just stroll across the lawn, past the fruit trees that feed the wild boar & deer, up to the pool with its panoramic views over the valley and wooded hills beyond, to just relax . Maybe go wine-tasting or golfing or mountain-biking or horse-riding tomorrow?
The flexible sleeping arrangements for up to 6 or 7 are provided by an en-suite double Master Bedroom 1 upstairs, plus on the main level twin Bedroom 2, and twin/single Bedroom 3, further complemented by sofa-beds in the lounge plus a cot.
A second bathroom has a walk-in shower, basin & WC to add to the en-suite’s bath/shower, basin & WC.

The adjacent large lawn slopes up to the 12x6m pool (0.6-1.8m deep) with Roman steps, sun-loungers, parasols, and panoramic views.
The pool is only shared with my elderly parents who holiday next door and understand the importance of your privacy & a pool to use whenever you want. The pool is in-service from mid-May to mid-September.
