Le Batiment

Barn -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Charente, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
A fantastic use of stone, bleached wood & light contemporary furnishings along with a roof terrace perfect for an alfresco breakfast or wine & cheese as you watch the sun go down make Le Batiment a very special place to stay.
The house is converted from a traditional stone barn & stands in the small, peaceful and very pretty French village of Puymoreau. The village is surrounded by the rolling countryside of the Charente Maritime region, bordered by vibrant sunflower fields.

All the old features of exposed stone walls & original beams have been carefully preserved but the finish is light, airy & contemporary to give a comfortable living space with all modern comforts.
