Front entrance of villa, Argeliers

Bienvenue a La Lavandiere

Built in 1836 in the small Languedoc village of Argeliers, the Barn was originally built by adding on to the neighbouring barns and distilleries. During the mid 1900's the Barn was used for storing agricultural and wine-making equipment, a collection of which has been saved and moved into the back garden.

The surrounding grand homes had their laundry serviced by the "ancienne lavandiere", the soap-making fireplace and wash-house. This outbuilding remains in the back garden.

Since buying the Barn in 2001, we have spent two years converting the barn into what is now: a holiday home for rent. The barn has four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, high ceilings with prominent beams and plenty of open living space. The private garden is surrounded by 18th-century stone walls, and includes a 4X8 metre pool, a shaded terrace for outdoor dining, and parking for three cars.
