I arrived in France June 2011 and have spent the last 3 years putting finishing touches on a barn conversion, the latest new feature being a private pétanque court! Since I split my time between the U.S. and France, the furnishings are owner not renter oriented...high end Bosch appliances, Le Creuset and All Clad cookware, comfortable beds and linens.
The barn sits on a raised plateau with both bedrooms on the street level. The master bedroom has a full bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers, ensuite half bath, television, and french doors opening onto a country road. The second bedroom has two single beds (made up as a king bed if you prefer), a wardrobe and view of the pétanque court and garden. A full bath is off the hall between the bedrooms.
A path winds down to the terrace where French doors in the kitchen and living room open onto a lovely southeast-facing terrace with shade tree for outdoor meals and all day sun for sunworshipers. A two minute walk to a village store, bar, spice shop, post office, church and a popular restaurant with a fine local reputation.
My home has overhead halogen lighting in every room. The flooring is pine with a whitewash finish. Some of the stone walls and beams from the barn have been judiciously left exposed. There is a wood burning stove in the living area and firewood available for your use. There are two HD LED television sets hooked up to a British satellite, one in the living room, the other in the master bedroom.
I spend a lot of time here, rest assured, when I leave all personal items are packed up and stowed so you can make this home your home during your stay.
