Gorgeous converted barn set in the tranquil rolling hills around Cordes. The barn was built in the early 19th century and has been part of a working farm and vineyard until recently - the wine vats are still in place in the cellar! The house has magnificent views across the countryside to Castelneau de Montmiral 10km away. There is a large garden of nearly 1/2 hectare with plum, cherry, fig and walnut trees. Some of the garden is maintained for playing and lounging in and some is wilder for exploring. The pool is surrounded by decking and loungers and also has superb views. Ideal for cycling and walking holidays. The barn was converted in 2009 by local craftsmen and now has the original beams exposed, log burner and luxury bathrooms and kitchen.

The deep mattresses on all the beds will ensure a comfortable nights sleep. The house is surrounded by paths and trails for walking and the nearest wine cave is only 15 minutes walk across the valley for local produce. Hilltop villages are all around with Cordes, Castelneau and Puycelci only 10 minutes by car and Vaour has a world famous music festival during August.

About the neighbourhood
Itzac is surrounded by fortified hilltop villages - from the medieval city of Cordes-sur-Ciel to the small villages of Puycelci and Penne, and the rolling vineyards of Gaillac - so there is plenty to explore. The countryside is criss-crossed with paths and cycle paths. Cordes was voted ¨Village Prefèré¨ in France in 2014 in a nationwide poll, and St Antonin provided the backdrop for the Helen Mirren film ¨The Hundred Foot Journey¨ Vaour has a week long music and arts festival in August and all the local villages have festivals throughout the summer with food, wine and music. There is a large Friday market in Gaillac, a smaller market in Cordes on Saturday and a bustling Sunday market in St Antonin.
Getting around
A car is essential as there are no shops within walking distance. Details of local walks are available.
