Rupert emailed us recently about his holiday homes in Dordogne, France that are available for holiday rental. It consists of 2 separate homes, Le Mas and Le Mazet that he renovated and designed with interior designer Joris van Grinsven. Le Mas is a 16th century farmhouse consisting of 5 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, 2 fireplaces, a summer kitchen, outdoor pool, sun terrace and more. Le Mazet is a detached cottage that has one bedroom with ensuite on the lower ground floor, and open kitchen and sitting room on the upper ground floor. The views across the valley are breathtaking. A vacation here would be magical!
There is a tunnel from Le Mas to Le Mazet
In Mont Owl’s Head, Quebec, lived an old barn that had lost its way and fallen into ruin. The owners (who live in an adjacent home), wanting to save the barn, decided to have it renovated so their children could enjoy it. La Firme was brought on board to bring it back to life and the resulting 30 ft height structure is the coolest hangout in town.
I know I have probably said this 254 times in various blog posts but I really need to say it again. I think I found my dream home. Let me give you some details and you’ll see why….
Located in the beautiful and peaceful countryside of North Norfolk, the property sits in 7 acres of wooded grounds. The single storey property is built around a courtyard attached by glazed walkways to a chapel ruin. The property offers 3400 sq ft of living space including an expansive kitchen, dining, living room with exposed brick work, steel and oak ceiling, polished concrete floors and an open fireplace. This room opens onto the courtyard garden via a glazed wall. Outside the property is a 2 acre walled garden with a beautifully constructed garden room opening onto the pathways and wildflower/herbaceous planting. There are majestic ancient trees, paddocks and woodland walks. I left out most of the interior photos because the decor is questionable, but the property is an absolute dream, and the interior has SO much potential. Another fab location home available via Shoot Factory.
Es Bec D’Aguila is an exquisite Mediterranean estate (or finca) located in Menorca, in the Balearic Islands and is available for weekly rental. It started out in the 19th century when a family of Menorcan merchants built it as their weekend getaway, and its current owners recently renovated it and brought it back to life. The original vaulted ceilings, handmade Cuban tiles, breathtaking landscape and gorgeous decor make this an absolute dream of a destination. (Photos: Karel Balas)
This home in Beaune, Burgundy, France takes bringing the outdoors in to a whole other level. Pine is abundant in this holiday family home surrounded by vineyards, and it looks incredibly relaxing and cozy. The homeowners kept the decor neutral which allows the pine to really take centre stage. Beautiful. Via The Socialite Family (photos: Constance Gennari, architect: Thomas Walter)
