The Barn is one of three gites at La Petite Ferme Gites, Dampierre-sur-Boutonne, which was originally a working farm in the heart of the village. The Barn has been lovingly restored keeping it's original stone walls, exposed beams and even the rings where the animals used to be tethered. The Barn is a lovely romantic getaway for 2, but can sleep 4 if required.
You enter the Barn from the large, private terrace. The front door opens into a large, airy (and cool in the summer) kitchen/living area. The kitchen is fully equipped and contains all the equipment and utensils you should need during your stay including oven, hob, microwave, fridge, toaster, kettle and coffee machine. The lounge area has a double sofa bed, arm chair, coffee table and TV, with a dining table and 4 dining chairs. Upstairs is a large bedroom with stone walls and exposed beams. There is with a double bed and single bed. The single bed is in the eaves, with restricted headroom, so is more ideally suited to a child. There is room for a cot or additional mattress if required. There is hanging space and drawers, bedside tables and bedside lights. The shower room leads off from the bedroom.
The outside private terrace is large and airy, with a table, chairs and BBQ. Plenty of room for sunbeds should you wish to relax. The back half of the terrace remains in the shade all day long, so is the perfect place to keep cool and chill out. It is a lovely spot to relax and eat in the evenings.
There is a beautiful and newly refurbished 10 x 5 m heated pool, with ample sunbeds and parasols. The pool area is in the sun the for the whole day. There is a large patio and pebbled area surrounding the pool. There is also a large games barn to amuse both the children and the adults. It is equipped with a pool table, table tennis, table football, darts and a number of board games. We also provide equipment that can be used on the lawn area such as badminton, football, boules, frisbee.
