About the property

Luxury 4 Bed Farmhouse - Large Gardens In The Heart Of Wine Country

The Lodge and Summer House at Barat offers traditional French rural luxury coupled with contemporary convenience in a country setting. With 35 acres of private woodland as a backdrop, outdoor dining in the summer house and lazing by the pool is the natural focus at Barat. Barat is ideally located to visit the famous vineyards of St Emilion, the historic towns of Périgueux, Bergerac and Castillion la Bataille, the city of Bordeaux and the prehistoric caves of Lascaux. Also close by is a lakeside beach resort.

The renovated Lodge at Barat dates from 1803. The property at 200 sq/m is spacious yet cosy. Downstairs the impressive entrance hall leads to a large dining and spacious lounge on one side and the farmhouse style kitchen on the other. All on one level, the property also offers a play area at the end of the hall and 4 double bedrooms, 2 of which are ensuite and one family bathroom.

The house offers many recreational spaces to enjoy time together with family/friends or time alone with a book or one's thoughts admiring the view (living room with fireplace, dining room with lounge area, pool side, terrace, summer house with table tennis). Barat is a wonderful place to leave the cares and stress of daily living behind and immerse yourself in the beautiful French countryside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful relaxing time we had at Barat. The weather was incredible. This house is lovely old French style, decorated perfectly - the pitcures really don't do it justice especially the outside. The highlight was sitting in the evenings sipping cool white wine in the summer house. Thanks for a lovely time.

Wonderful French Luxury

  • 5 of 5

This is our family's umpteenth visit to this splendid property and it continues to impress. If anything, the standard of upkeep and garden maintenance has actually improved further in recent years and the property has never looked better. It is difficult to describe the sense of luxury and comfort to be experienced here but the real testimony is the yearning to return time and time again. A special place indeed.

The Lodge at Barat - Superb Villa

  • 5 of 5

A thoroughly enjoyable stay, which started from the very warm welcome of David & Andrea. The size and layout of the whole property is really very good, especially the seating area by the bbq. Many hours were spent relaxing in the shade and the large bbq meant that there was no problem with ccoking.

As for the pool, it was ideal for all the family including our nearly 3 year old grandchild. It was kept really well cleaned by Dave.

Their willingness to help was put to the test when EDF, the electricity supplier decided to do some unscheduled work and we had no electricity for a while but Andrea was onto it like a shot and the situation was quickly resolved .

Its location is pretty remote but the the village is only a couple of miles away and there is a good boulangerie and restaurant.

We have no hesitation in recommending the property.

Everything we had hoped for

  • 5 of 5

We were two families with 3 kids each all under 14 and this house was perfect for us. As a group of ten we could ate outdoors nearly every night in the summer house - we drank wine while the kids battled it out for table tennis champ. Plenty of loungers and a lovely warm pool during the day meant that we didn't venture out much. We did go on a couple of walks across the fields and through the forest and in to the village close by for bread and a coffee every morning. The town of St Foy is lovely and the huge market on Saturday morning was great fun. Kids and adults like had a great time, adults especially enjoying long lie ins as a result of the shutters! Lovely.

Just Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we were greeted on arrival we had a lovely feeling about the Lodge. It was the perfect get away location, so peaceful and quiet. We had hoped to be able to walk to the village but that proved to be a little too far so we had to drive but it was very quick. The highlight of this house has to be the outdoor summer house. We BBQed nearly every night and we could enjoy dinner being able to see the kids in the pool which is always comforting. Inside the house was very clean and well maintained with everything that we needed, maybe a few more wine glasses would have been helpful.

We visited a number of local restaurants and the Le Pressoir in the local village was probably the best of them, with a lovely outdoor terrace. Also nearby was the lake which has a beach, pedalos and a couple of beach bars. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We will definitely be back to this part of France and the lodge.

Something perfect for everyone

  • 5 of 5

A great place for the whole family. Beautiful house, great interior design with everything you need for a great holiday. What makes this house is the outside space though. The "al fresco" dining area is fantastic. Plenty of space for eating out and chilling out in the barn area. The outdoor bbq and table tennis was very well used!

It's also really private and you feel like you have the whole place to yourselves, the kids can make as much noise as they want! Great fun to be had around the pool too which was also necessary as the weather was beautiful. All in all a great place for fun and relaxation for the whole family. We'll definitely be coming back!
