The Barn (as we affectionately call it) has been lovingly restored over the past 10 years. It's located in the midieval hilltop village of Vezenobres, near Nimes, Uzes and the Cevennes mountains. Originally built in 1782, the spacious stone home has a special feeling because we used original old and regional materials in its restoration. The house is decorated with art and furniture from our travels in Europe, Morocco, Mexico and the States, along with family antiques and finishings like windows and doors. Every detail and corner of the house has a story.
The main living room which has great volume with its 6m/20 foot high ceilings and long wood beams is heated with an amazing Canadian wood burning stove giving a warm feel to the room. This big open space brims with light. The open kitchen is equipped with top of line oven, fridge and a special collection of collectible china, stemware, bowls, flatware, etc. The big kitchen opens to the dinning room making the space great for entertaining, both facing east, getting most of the morning sunshine. The house is surrounded by north and east facing decks sheltered from the afternoon heat (in hot Summer months) and great for eating and relaxing outside. We of course have WIFI and Internet phone, a washing machine/dryer and an office area in either the living room or mezzanine.
Up the custom-made staircase appointed with original Moroccan wrought iron grills is the mezzanine that looks out over the main living room, along with a decadent bathroom and two bedrooms. The bathroom has an original claw foot tub, separate standing shower with extra large shower head, original bistro doors and floor length gold-framed mirror. Both bedrooms have comfortable double beds, views of the village, and a special custom closet in the master bedroom.
