The Tobacco Barn
We would like to reassure you that we will be doing everything possible to make the Tobacco Barn a safe place to holiday during these difficult times. We will allow extra days between changeovers so that we can not only clean to our normal high standards but also disinfect everything possible. It does mean that we may have to remove items which are non-essential such as cushions, books, games etc in order to concentrate on the essential.
The Tobacco Barn is the largest of our gites with three bedrooms it offers accommodation for up to 6 people. It has direct access to the patio surrounding the pool from the living room and a wooden gazebo for outdoor eating. There will be sunbeds designated for the sole use of the Tobacco Barn; other sunbeds will be provided for our other guests and will be placed more than 2 metres away. We will also provide disinfectent spray.
Fabulous views across to Roque Saint Christophe, which is floodlit at night, and access to all the green space/land that surrounds our property. A mown field at the side of the gazebo offers a great place for the children to play. Two double bedrooms, each with its own en-suite shower room, are located on the ground floor the third bedroom with a double and single bed, also with an en-suite shower room, is on the first floor. Linen, towels and foot mats are provided. The beds will be made for your arrival. A change of linen is offered weekly.
The gite has been thoughtfully furnished with English and French modern and antique furniture. The living room features a Perigordine stone fireplace with a wood burning stove, natural stone walls, and a beamed ceiling. Guests can also enjoy French and English satellite (freeview) TV and DVD player. The traditional, well equipped kitchen offers an electric fan oven, 4 ring gas hob, dishwasher, microwave, pots, pans, crockery and cutlery, to help you prepare and enjoy the local specialties from the markets. Tea towels are provided.
The communal washing machine and freezer are situated in the boiler room off the courtyard. As these extra items are shared between the 4 gites, disinfectant spray will be available at all times along with alcohol hand gel. We will expect everyone to play their part in keeping each of us safe and well.
For groups up to 12, an excellent alternative to the Main House is to take the Tobacco Barn along with the other three one-bedroom cottages - the Hay Barn, the Walnut Store, and La Roque Terrasse. The four units are self-contained but joined together, and offer good level of privacy.
