Villeneuve-sur-Lot area Barn Rental Photos and Description

Unique blend of home comforts with many included luxuries and services

Amidst plum orchards & sunflower fields just outside the 13th C bastide town of Ste Livrade-Sur-Lot, the designer owner has created a stylish luxury self-catering retreat equally perfect for couples, families + groups. This light and spacious converted stone barn with its 5m high ceilings, colour washed beams, and exposed stonework is tastefully decorated with country antiques & chandeliers.

Accommodating up to 13 people + cots in 3 private suites in the huge barn, allows groups to retain individual privacy & flexibility whilst holidaying together. All ground floor level, each suite has its own fully equipped kitchen/dining/lounge area and outside space. Guests have exclusive use heated 12 x 6m pool, games room + 8 acre gardens.

Included luxuries: champagne & flowers, superb welcome hamper, luxury toiletries, linens/towels/pool towels, bath robe & slippers, weekly cleaning. Extras on request: continental breakfast, driver, chef, office & shopping service. Discrete on site owner for all your needs

A little history about the property: La Maison de Maitre is a small elegant 18th Century country mansion, situated on a quite rural lane, in the hills above Sainte Livrade-sur-Lot, which overlooks the picturesque Cazeneuve valley. Apparently built by a local wealthy land owner. It's impressive collection of 17th century stone buildings arranged around a central garden including pigeonnier with bread oven, dove house, wine store, huge barn and even a few remnants of a little chapel 'Notre Dame de Villamade' still visible in the front garden (more like a little hamlet!) all seem to support this theory.

Ancient historic pathways cross the valley beyond the grounds and provide pleasant country walks through corn, wheat and sunflower fields.

The Accomodation : The magnificent stone barn has been lovingly restored and transformed into a chic, spacious and luxurious retreat for groups of up to 10 people. The owners have placed great value on the barn's many original features, such as the exposed vanilla stone walls, impressive beam work, and the odd quirky little original window. Only natural products have been used with oak woodwork and limestone flooring throughout, and outside the property is surrounded by aromatic and exotic plants and flowers - a treat for all the senses!

Within the barn there are 3 separately accessed self-catering suites, affording a degree of privacy and flexibility whilst holidaying together. Each suite offers it's own bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen/dining and living accommodation. On top of this, the Vionnet Suite offers the space and facilities to entertain the whole group inside and the Lartigue suite offers the same opportunity al fresco with it's extensive dining area in front of the vast glazed former barn doors outside under the huge covered verandah.

The Grounds: The property is set in almost 8 acres of landscaped gardens, park and fields which guests are welcome to explore, enjoy the swings + slide in the play area, play boules or simply to discover the many delightful shady spots to sit, and maybe even have a home picnic! Guests are also encouraged to help themselves to the plentiful cherries, purple and golden figs, wild golden plums and walnuts found ripening throughout the year.

The extensive terraced patio area around the heated 12 x 6 m pool is flanked by cypress trees, fragrant lavender and rosemary flower beds and lawns. A second decked patio area also with sun loungers and umbrellas can be found just beyond the pool. Either here or around the pool guests can spend leisurely hours in the sun enjoying wonderful views across the picturesque valley or sipping a glass of something cool whilst watching a glorious sunset.

THE PERFECT MIX OF 5* LUXURY AND CHILD FRIENDLY

  • 5 of 5
Our second stay at La Maison de Maitre. We have a 3 year old and 15month old and everything we could possibly need was provided.. Cot, highchair, toys, DVDs, playground area, swimming toys and inflatables..we didnt need to bring anything with us. It is the perfect mix of 5* luxury and the stunning scenery, whilst being totally family friendly.
We booked twice for the owners to cook our dinner and the meals were delicious. We will be back for a third visit.

BEAUTIFUL SUITE AND POOL

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here in June with our toddler daughter and baby boy. The suite is beautifully furnished and decorated. The hostess provides linen, towels, dressing gowns and toiletries, as well as a starter basket of groceries, which makes it feel like a hotel when you arrive. The children were very well provided for, all baby equipment was new and very clean, we really needed to lug very little over on the plane and this was much appreciated.
The pool is stunning, as are the views from it's terrace.
Great shade outside the suite for hot weather.
Lartigue is joined to another suite and you share the terrace (separate tables and barbeques!) - this did not bother us as our neighbours were friendly and private sorts too.
We were very unlucky with the weather, very unusually it rained and rained, the comfort of the suite helped, as did satellite TV and the wonderful tea party that our hostess held for all the guests in the main house, one wet afternoon. Some pretty local villages, fortified towns etc to visit. Agen is good for a nice lunch and bit of shopping but the area is really best in lovely weather. The hostess was always happy to help but never intruded on our privacy.
Would highly recommend this property. It would be particularly good for a big family do if you hired the other suites too.

RELAXING HOLIDAY IN BEAUTIFUL SETTING

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a relaxing holiday in a beautiful setting then this is the place for you. We visited with a baby of just over a year. We were delighted as this was the sort of place we would have stayed in as a couple for a romantic weekend but had added extras such as toys, pool and accessories including paddling pool, high chair, etc that kept baby entertained and catered for. The interiors were beautiful and in keeping with the building with additional mod cons that are helpful especially when on holiday with children e.g. dishwasher/wash machine/tv. The owners were very helpful helping us to arrange baby sitters, recommending good restaurants and generally looking after us when we needed them. The area is full of beautiful villages, markets, river swimming or boating. I would recommend this holiday for romantic couples or couples with baby/toddlers.

EXCEPTIONAL!

  • 5 of 5
Exceptional! We can't wait to return next year. What a wonderful holiday my husband and I have had staying in your sumptious barn with views you only dream of. We still go on and on to our friends, family and each other about every aspect and the attention to detail which was beyond our expectations. We both felt thoroughly spoilt with your hospitality and beautiful home cooking. We miss being there very much. How do you match this, let alone beat it? I fear we will not.
