If you are looking for a special rural escape in la France profonde Le Laurier is the perfect location. Set in the heart of the Diege valley in south west France surrounded by farms, rivers and woodland, the charming 19th-century converted barn offers extremely comfortable accommodation for two people.
On the first floor a large sitting room with deep comfortable sofas, an extensive library of books, dvds and music cds. The pretty mezzanine bedroom has a king size bed, with 100% cotton bedding and plenty of hanging space and shelving. On the ground floor there is a bright fully equipped kitchen and a shower room and toilet. The private breakfast terrace catches the morning sunshine, and when the sun gets too hot to laze in the mature garden, the large, covered terrace is the perfect place for a long lunch or an afternoon snooze. Guests are invited to help themselves to produce from the organic potager and tiny orchard. After a day of discovery - there are many medieval towns and villages, vineyards, markets and a stunning river-laced valley to explore - stretch out on the wisteria-draped terrace and enjoy a pre-dinner drink.
At night the skies are breathtaking - the Milky Way is clearly visible with the naked eye. The whole area is excellent for walking with well-marked paths for all levels within striking distance of the house. Alternatively bicycles and helmets are provided, along with a picnic basket for a more leisurely promenade.
