L'Atelier is a charming gîte, set in the rolling Périgord fields which provide a stunning backdrop when enjoying a coffee or dinner on the covered terrace to the front.
The property sleeps 5, and has ample living space divided over two floors.
The property is entered through the front door by the covered terrace. The tiled entrance hall leads to the carpeted lounge on the left which has a comfy leather corner sofa, flat-screen TV with UK Freesat television and DVD player. There is a small dining table and chairs, and a large wood burner. A selection of books and DVDs are provided. French doors leads to a side terrace.
The large kitchen with breakfast bar is accessed through two double doors from the entrance hall. There are ample storage cupboards, as well as a gas hob, electric oven, microwave, dishwasher, under-counter fridge and separate freezer. Ample crockery, cutlery and glassware is provided, as well as ovenware, pans and other kitchen aids which make your self-catering holiday less of a chore.
From the kitchen a corridor leads to the ground floor bathroom with walk-in shower, wash basin and toilet. Next to the bathroom is the laundry room which houses the washing machine. One of the three bedrooms is on the ground floor, accessed through the kitchen. It has a double bed and wardrobe, and due to its proximity to the ground floor bathroom is it ideal for people with limited mobility or those that find climbing stairs difficult.
The stairs to the upper floor are situated in the entrance hall to the right of the front door. A large open-plan mezzanine leads to the master bedroom on the left, and the single bedroom and bathroom (with bath, wash basin and toilet) to the right. An office desk and chair is situated on the mezzanine, as is a comfortable chair, coffee table and bookcase for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle for a bit and sit and read, or need to check their emails during their stay.
All linen, towels and pool towels are included in the price, as is gas for the cooker and the BBQ.*
All upstairs rooms have Velux windows with views to the countryside to the front, or the garden at the back.
The garden is completely enclosed with fences and hedges. The gravelled drive from the road leading to both La Fermette and L'Atelier is shared with other guests. A gate separates the main drive from the one belonging to L'Atelier, which is for private use of its guests and provides ample parking, either on the drive itself, or in the covered open garage/outbuilding at the front.
At the back of the property is an enclosed garden, with an above-ground pool which is accessed by a small set of steps leading to a large decked area with sun loungers, making it ideal for sunbathing and having a quick dip to cool off. Additional bamboo screens provide added privacy from guests residing at La Fermette. A barbecue is provided for use. A shaded and tranquil play area behind the garden of La Fermette is shared with all guests, and has a double-swing set, as well as a sandpit and ample room to play badminton or other games. It is also enclosed with hedges and fences.
L'Atelier is eminently suitable for dogs, and up to two well-behaved dogs are allowed to join you on your holiday free of charge. (Other pets may be welcome too, please contact us prior to booking). The property itself is strictly non-smoking, smoking is permitted outside.
