Barneville-Carteret Estate Rental Photos and Description
6 bedrooms,4 bath/ shower rooms, sleeps 12 - (Guest cottage optional)
Set on 100 acres of luscious rolling countryside with its centennial oaks, streams, ponds, and just 3 miles from the Atlantic Ocean's beaches, this family house boasts a tennis court and fresh water swimming for the sportsmen, lazy afternoons tapping on the Steinway or perusing one of the thousand volumes in the great panelled library for the reflective. It is furnished with the family's collection of art and furniture that spans 4 centuries of French master craftsmen's work.
The current house is said to have been settled in the 14th century. All that remains of the older house is the part that is the kitchen today: wattle walls on a stone foundation sunken by the passing years. Extended mainly in the 19th and 20th century, the last 20 years of restoration and extension have yielded what you can see and enjoy today.
Supplementary guests...: Guest cottage, sleeping 3 is optional.

Guestbook comments from the owner
... Just a quick mail from your library to say thank you for having us here in this absolutely stunning place! We have had a lovely first evening already, enjoying some good French tournedos and red wines in the dining room. About to take the kids to Port Bail and/or Barneville for a first beach walk.
