A beautiful, spacious home-from-home. Rated 4 Star Meublée de Tourism by the French Tourist Board - and 5 Stars by our guest reviews!
We fell in love with this lovely original stone farmhouse and bought it in 2006. We renovated the barns to create a 'maison des amis', then we moved in! We now have a beautiful, comfortably furnished home available for friends, family and guests.
We often welcome multiple generations of friends and families who want to have a special holiday together. La Varenne Farmhouse is a beautiful, spacious 4-bedroom property and can comfortably sleep up to 10 people.
Large, airy, comfortable and very well-equipped accommodation on three floors:
- On the ground floor, the breakfast kitchen has a large solid oak table and chairs, and all the equipment we can think of - even an egg-slicer! There's a round floor WC and hand basin in a small inner hallway. The salon has four comfortable sofas facing a wood burning stove, a large flat screen TV and UK and French channels. There are coffee and side tables, book shelves and a piano (which needs a lot of work!)
- Solid wooden stairs lead off the salon to the second floor, Bedroom 1 looks over the pool and garden and has a king size bed, solid wardrobes, drawers and a dressing table. Bedroom 2 has built in wardrobes, drawers, a double bed and double sofa-bed. The main house bathroom, on the landing between the two bedrooms, has a toilet, cupboards and sink; and large bath with shower over.
- The top floor has beautiful original beams. Bedroom 3 has a double bed, solid wardrobe and drawers. Bedroom 4 has four full-size single beds, a large solid wardrobe and drawers. The spacious shower room on this floor has a toilet and sink, is on the landing between the two bedrooms.
There are cots, high chairs, stair safety gates, and lots of plastic crockery available for younger guests. The cots can be installed in any of the bedrooms, as families prefer.
Set on the edge of a tiny rural hamlet in the Beautiful Dordogne countryside, the property borders the River Dronne. Perfect for families and friends. There's a large (10m by 4m) in-ground heated swimming pool with secure fence, patio, deck and sun loungers. A pergola also provides poolside shade and comfortable outdoor seating.
The front of the property faces onto a large private gravelled courtyard with flower borders. The covered paved patio and table are perfect for outdoor dining.
Private off-road parking on the driveway for up to 4 cars.
A relaxing getaway for families and friends, or those who like a little more space.
