Villeneuve chateau / country house description
Chateau Ferme is an authentic tobacco farm situated on the borders of Tarn et Garonne, a region sometimes known as the Tuscany of France. This beautiful estate is set in a sweeping landscape, where the soft drone of tractors can be heard from the fields in the distance. Today, the chateau is a working sunflower farm that has 13 luxurious rooms all with en suite bathrooms. In spite of the many luxurious touches, the chateau remains a throwback to centuries past, even if it has been thoroughly redecorated. Chateau Ferme has a wonderful stone swimming pool, beautiful sunny and shady spots, a large communal kitchen for cooking, long tables for dining in the evenings, a cinema where you can watch a film after sunset and a pool room where you can play a last game of pool before turning in for the night.
The property has room for 21 guests in the main house and 6 more in the adjoining pigeonière. There are also 2 movable baby-beds. On the ground floor of the main house is the kitchen with utility room, a separate room for the pizza oven, a pool room and the salon. Opening onto the large central hall are three bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. The bedroom that adjoins the tower has its loo and separate bathroom with free-standing bath within the tower. The bedrooms on the ground floor have high ceilings, wooden paneling, wooden floors and fireplaces, and are decorated in different styles. A fourth room adjoining the veranda has a more rustic look with partly exposed stone walls, a fireplace, an antique three-quarter bed and a smaller bathroom.
The communal rooms are grouped around the large kitchen on the ground floor. The kitchen has a large stone work surface which extends into the utility room. The utility room is equipped with two dishwashers, an espresso machine, an ice-cream maker and a blender. This has preserved the original feel of the kitchen by minimizing “white goods” (standard kitchen appliances). The large fireplace with its original wood oven and a professional restaurant range make cooking for and with large groups a delight. There is a restored antique red Berkel slicer for slicing hams and sausages, and the long dining table on the veranda immediately outside the kitchen is big enough for the entire group. The kitchen itself has two fridges and there is a large American fridge with ice-cube maker on the veranda (out of sight but within reach), which is particularly handy for bottles and deep-frozen items.
Adjacent to the kitchen is the pool room with paneling and painted frescoes all around, an open fire and, of course, the pool table. The salon has Venetian parquet flooring and a fine black marble fireplace. The velvet sofas, the gold of the wallpaper, the paintings and the large chandelier breathe the atmosphere of yesteryear. Fortunately, the flat screen TV and DVD player do little to detract from the ambiance. The staircase leads up to the first floor hallway. Here there are five double rooms and one triple room. The triple room and one of the double rooms are connected and share a large bathroom. The rooms on the first floor feature sturdy stone walls, huge oak rafters and original terracotta floor tiles. The bathrooms have terrazzo floors from the Pyrenees and are fitted with shower cabinets, toilets, baths and wash basins.
