Chez Jenkins description

This detached barn, with private swimming pool and enclosed garden, is situated within 5-minutes’ drive of the riverside town of Ribérac. The holiday house has stone walls and traditional beams (the first floor beams are very low – so mind your head!) combined with modern facilities to provide comfortable and spacious accommodation. Ribérac has a Friday market, reputably the biggest in the Périgord. Close by is the village of Aubeterre-sur-Dronne with its château, golf course, river and church of Saint-Jean, a troglodyte church dating in part to the 5th century. The famous wine growing area of St. Emilion is just an hour’s drive away. There are opportunities for walking and cycling from the door, canoeing in Ribérac and local cuisine. Relax in the sun on the pool terrace or shady garden terrace and enjoy a glass of local wine. Bordeaux Airport is just over an hour’s drive. Ground floor: Large entrance hall. Living room with beams and wooden floors. Dining room/kitchen with French door. Utility/shower room (no WC). Separate WC. Open-tread stairs to first floor: Mezzaine gallery with beams. Five bedrooms: One double with en-suite bathroom/WC with over-bath shower, two twin, one with 2 steps from landing, sloping ceilings and beams, one bunk (for children), one single. Bathroom/WC with over-bath shower
