    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    L'olivier is a beautifully converted barn /cottage , ideally located between Aubeterre sur Dronne and Verteillac.

    This south facing property sits in grounds of more than an acre and enjoys views of woods and hills. Shops and restaurants are just a short drive away.

    A private pool and sun terrace overlook the barn and gardens. Walnuts, figs and cherries can be picked from the many trees in the grounds or just relax in their shade. Sunset dining is a must on one of the terraces after an evening swim. The ever changing landscape views of sunflower and maize fields below the barn are a pleasant reminder of French rural life.

    The high-beamed open-plan living area allows you to relax in a quiet corner or to dine around the table. You can eat Al fresco under a covered shady terrace or Barbeque and sit under the vine covered terrace with views of the countryside beyond.

We had a very happy holiday staying here. We arrived very stressed due to work pressures and left very relaxed and carefree. This was exactly what we had hoped for and was down to not only the detail that John and Nina have taken with preparing this luxurious barn but the way in which they care for their guests.

Management response:

This was our second stay at L'Olivier in as many years, which speaks for itself! A truly wonderful stay; the new furniture and shade at the end of the pool was gorgeous, really prettily done and a lovely spot to sit out in the evening. It was lovely to see John and Nina again and catch up over the past... more
