the country kitchen
                                          The large, classic french country kitchen is furnished with a beautiful antique hutch and is dominated by a magnificent, ancient Perigordian fireplace.  In contrast, the kitchen is fitted with all modern appliances including a dishwasher, micro-wave, coffee-maker and food-processor.  A huge antique farm table sits 10 or 12 comfortably and is ideal for lingering over the wonderful classic food of the area.  Light pours in from glassed doors on either side.

farmhouse set on 2 acres

                       the salon
      Down the hallway from the kitchen is the sophisticated, yet endlessly comfortable, salon.  With its five French doors opening on to the sunny garden, it’s the perfect place for a quiet afternoon.  Sit by the antique desk to catch up on some details about this fascinating area.  The grand, ancient armoire and antique “table ferme” (farm table) provide a backdrop to a wonderful space to spend a sunny afternoon. 
                
                                        the bedrooms
                      The downstairs master bedroom has a beautiful four-poster queensize bed which faces straight out the tall windows for glorious view of the garden and surrounding countryside. Fresh, white linens await your arrival, and a magnificent antique walnut armoire, antique dressing table, and wooden chest of drawers provide plenty of space to unpack and revive after arriving. Down the hall-way, the downstairs double bedroom is beautifully furnished with a large double-bed and other antiques.  This room offers the unique feature of a door to a beautiful, private verandah that overlooks the large pool, as well as an ensuite bathroom (see below).  The room is very quiet and the verandah and pool-access make it a favorite with those who like to enjoy their coffee outside in the early mornings. The ancient stairway from the kitchen leads you to the large upstairs master bedroom with its huge proportions and beautiful countryside views.  The grand queen-size bed looks almost small among all the space in this blue-walled room, filled with gracious antiques, including a large amoire and useful butler’s hanger.  The classic French dormer windows look out over the countryside and the cushioned window seat is a perfect spot for some quiet time.  Across the landing the upstairs twin bedroom has 2 single/twin beds done in a country French style, complete with an antique washstand and chest of drawers.  This sage-colored room is perfect for 2 children or 2 adults sharing, and is my sister’s favorite room to escape for a quiet afternoon.  

                                           the bathrooms
                                            Down the hallway from the kitchen is the
large downstairs bathroom that has a bath, shower, toilet, and   
wash-basin, and plenty of space for storing all your necessities.  A fabulous new ensuite bathroom with American-style shower, toilet and basin leads off the downstairs double bedroom, while upstairs, a third bathroom with a toilet, wash-basin and mirror is located between the upstairs master bedroom and the upstairs twin bedroom
