Holiday home in France
“Beaulieu” is said to be dated back to the 1400′s and was built as the hunting lodge associated with the Chateau Brassac located about 5km away. Later on it became a monastery and then a farm for the last 150 years. The old barn has been renovated into the guesthouse (gite). The renovations have been tastefully done, balancing the old world charm of the building with the ‘creature comforts’ of today.
