La Laiterie at Barat offers a stylish barn conversion coupled with contemporary convenience in a country setting. With 35 acres of private woodland as a backdrop, outdoor dining on the patio or lawn 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.
La Laiterie is dominated by the enormous open plan living area centred around the feature stone double fronted fire place. Enormous white leather sofas, each seating 5+ flank the fireplace and provide the ultimate in comfortable luxury.
A dining area with oak dining table and seating for up to 8 can be found en route to the kitchen. On the other side of the fire, a cozy corner or kids play area provides a quiet space to retreat from the rest of the house.
La Laiterie has 3 large bedrooms: the master bedroom, a twin room and another double bedroom. Each room is elegantly furnished with unique pieces, mixing new with old to create a stylish but comfortable sleeping area.
The large kitchen at Laiterie includes an additional dining table seating up to 8 and every modern convenience including dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, kettle and large fridge freezer. A very large selection of pots and pans and crockery is available.
Outside, extensive gardens provide ample space for games and for outdoor dining. The above ground pool (wood frame, 5.3m x 3.5m, nearing completion, photos to follow) and patio area features a BBQ, table and chairs and sun loungers. Outside the master bedroom on the gravel patio is the perfect place for croissant and coffee in the morning. A small stone building by the pool is great for kids to make a den in.
