Les Vignes de Renardieres

Cottage -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 5
Douzains, Lot-et-Garonne, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
Set in two acres of land, a lovely converted 18th century barn overlooking beautiful orchards and open countryside, nestling at the end of a quiet lane. This deceptively spacious oak-beamed cottage is my home when I live in France. It has a relaxed lounge/dining area, with an open fire and doors opening onto the large terrace. There is comfortable seating for five and dining for 6 people. 3 bedrooms, two of which are doubles and one single.

There is also a sofabed and a cot. The large ground floor bedroom has a kingsize bed, en-suite shower room and a door opening onto the garden. The first floor bedrooms, again both beamed, has one double bed and the third bedroom has a single bed and a cot. The sun terrace overlooks the large front garden and is ideal for those leisurely breakfasts or al fresco dining and a barbecue is available...
