About this property

Converted Barn With Heated Pool, Garden And Views. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

La Grange @ Le Coulon is a traditional French open hanger barn, converted to a two a storey gite. The Interior of the barn has a contemporary feel, but still has exposed beams and handmade wood doors which gives it a rustic feel. We have a level entry to the downstairs living area which is open plan with 3 settees in the lounge area, 2 side tables a wood burner as well a tv and dvd player. Leading on to the kitchen and dinning area and terrace. There is also a single bedroom and wet room on this level. Off the galleried landing are 3 spacious double bedrooms, giving a total of 4 bedrooms. there is also a family bathroom.
We have a large outside terrace overlooking the garden and pool, where you can sit and enjoy the summer evenings watching the sun go down over the Dordogne countryside with a glass of local French wine.

La Grange @ Le Coulon is situated in a small hamlet 3 minutes drive from the village of Jumilhac Le Grand with its picturesque fairy tale chateau, we are in the north of the Dordogne with lush country side surrounding us. We fell in love with this property mainly because of the great views. The location is excellent as you are close to the village which has a Post Office, restaurant, bars, shop, butchers, chemist, 2 bakeries, hair dressers etc. and less than 10 minutes from St Yrieix La Perche. A small town which offers all the local amenities you would expect, local markets, supermarkets, shops, restaurants, hospital etc.
There are so may places to visit from small villages and towns to cities such as Limoges and Perigueux which have wonderful cathedrals and fascinating architecture, as well as lots of restaurants where you can try many local dishes. Many towns have regular markets with local produce.
