    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.

    This tastefully converted barn provides 2 bedroomed accommodation with Queen sized beds and memory foam mattresses for your comfort.

    Built of local stone, it retains the charm and character of the original 1800s building but with a light, airy decor and style that make for an enjoyable and comfortable holiday.

    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.

Despite only having a handful of reviews due to being the first full year of L'Olivier being available to rent, it comes as no surprise to read how glowing all the reports are. We travelled as a group of 4 friends, and had the holiday of a lifetime. L'Olivier itself is a stunning property. It has been renovated with love...

On arrival we were moved to tears at the beauty of acres of sun flowers surrounding the Barn. Electrical storms and high winds/rain by night and record temperatures by day did nothing to deter John with his pool duties. Everything was always returned to perfection by breakfast time, ready for our daily dose of floating in the pool for hours,... more

July 2013. Thank you for your kind comments here and in our guest book. It is an endorsement in itself when previous guests return to l’Olivier. At the time of our guests stay, France and indeed the whole of Europe was experiencing a heat wave, with tropical storms at night and long hours of daytime Sun. At least our guests... more

Sometimes it's difficult to use words like paradise, heaven, fantastic and the like without sounding overly flamboyant or frankly a bit silly. However I have no hesitation on this occasion to use such ebullient language when detailing our experience at l'Olivier. The Barn is a wonderful 19th century building retaining a number of original features as well as some very... more
