About this property

Stunning Luxury Barn Conversion. This cottage/gite is in a village setting.

A fantastic use of stone, bleached wood and light contemporary furnishings, along with a roof terrace perfect for an al fresco breakfast or wine and 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 and 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 and original beams have been carefully preserved but the finish is light, airy and contemporary to give a comfortable living space with all modern comforts.
