Luxury 4 Bed Manor House in the Dordogne - Large Gardens in the heart of wine country
The Manor House at Barat offers uncompromising French rural luxury coupled with contemporary convenience in a country setting. With 35 acres of private woodland as a backdrop, outdoor dining and lazing by the pool is the natural focus at Barat. Barat is ideally located to visit the famous vineyards of St Emilion, the historic towns of Périgueux, Bergerac and Castillion la Bataille, the city of Bordeaux and the prehistoric caves of Lascaux. Also close by is a lakeside beach resort.
The renovated Manor House at Barat dates from 1803. The pigeonnaire affords the property a particular charm. The property at 250 sq/m is spacious yet cosy. Downstairs the impressive entrance hall leads to a large dining room on one side and a restful, comfortable and spacious lounge on the other. The farmhouse style kitchen is the centre of the house with a large island which is the social epicentre. Downstairs, the property also offers a playroom off the kitchen, a utility room and a bathroom with shower.
Upstairs there are 4 double bedrooms, 2 of which are ensuite and one family bathroom.
The house offers many recreational spaces to enjoy time together with family/friends or time alone with a book or one's thoughts admiring the view (living room with fireplace, dining room with lounge area, pool side, terrace, barn with table tennis). Barat is a wonderful place to leave the cares and stress of daily living behind and immerse yourself in the beautiful French countryside.

Great place for groups
I stayed here with a group of friends for a long weekend of drinking local wine and eating lovely food. The villa is very well equipped and beautifully furnished and well kept. It could easily host a large group or extended family.
The property is wonderful and excellently equipped to cater for large groups of people. The property is furnished to a high spec to allow for a comfortable stay and the views are wonderful. The house is very clean and well maintained. The pool is lovely to either relax or exercise. There are some great walks in the area and some lovely restaurants in the surrounding towns. A great get away and excellent value for money.
Outstanding house in a idyllic place
Beautiful house surrounded by vineyards and amazing forest. Perfect for families with kids, outdoor activities and relax. We really loved it!
Simply perfect. Beautiful house lovely gardens and walks in the woods. The perfect relaxing holiday for our party of 9.
Everything that we expected and more, what an amazing place. It's got everything - patio overlooking the pool, so always felt safe re kids, superbly equipped kitched, hot plate and BBQ, so much room for everybody, SKY TV, brilliant property managers (Andrea and David) on call whenever you need them. Kids loved it, we loved it. Nothing negative to report. Can'r recommend enough.
