18th Century charentaise farmhouse and barn conversion. Sympathetically renovated to expose the stone walls, fireplaces and beams. Integrating traditional and contemporary style to create a light and spacious home.
Beyond the original high metal gates and charente stone walls the frontage of the property is edged with a typical rustic ensemble of old stone farm buildings with tarred wooden doors that are semi obscured by undergrowth and wild flowers.
A welcoming entrance hall with vaulted ceiling is overlooked by a mezzanine. Bright and open plan; leading from a rattan seated conservatory like area through to dining area and kitchen. The house is tastefully and comfortably furnished throughout. A large lounge with ample sofas offers a cool tranquil respite from the summer sun. In colder months the room is cosy as the stone walls are warmed through from the roaring wood burner. The house has the benefit of double glazing and central heating making it a comfortable house to stay in all year round. A winding old staircase leads up to the two bedrooms. The rooms are of similar size though one has a double and one a king-size bed. Both have great views over the courtyard and captivating rural landscape beyond. A small corridor of well-aged and rather wonky floorboards leads through to the mezzanine with daybed. Whilst not wanting to brag the bathroom is a bit of a wow. Take your time to truly relax immersed in the luxuriously deep free standing bath whilst looking out over the beautiful countryside. Watch out for swooping birds of prey and families of deer and hares.
The name, Les Figues, is derived from the two very large and very bountiful fig trees that have watched over 'la pelouse', a large enclosed lawned area, and surrounding fields for many many years. Enjoy the privacy of the walled courtyard which is a real suntrap. Take your coffee and pastry al fresco or a chilled glass of the locally produced aperitif, Pineau des Charentes, or cognac as the sun goes down.
Les Figues offers private high quality holiday accommodation. It is a charming property that would appeal to couples or families regardless of whether you are seeking an active or less strenuous break. We want you to have a wonderful stay and enjoy the house as much as we do. If there is anything we can help you with that might enhance your holiday please just ask.
