Overview

About the property

Luxurious 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom farmhouse with private pool and fantastic views!

Lafont is a lovely, beautifully converted French farmhouse and barn set deep in the idyllic French countryside with spectacular views of the rolling hills. Only 5km from the charming Bastide market town of Lectoure (that boasts its own luxurious spa), this is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Tastefully designed for relaxed comfort, this 200yr old converted farmhouse and barn has 5 bedrooms, 2 with en suite bathrooms, a separate family bathroom and further family shower room. There are 3 reception rooms, a large farmhouse kitchen and multiple external terraces plus a large salt water swimming pool with an open barn so you can catch the sun or relax in the shade as the mood suits.

Lafont is intimate enough to be the idyllic romantic retreat (think roaring fires and cosy stoves in winter) being completely private and beautifully appointed. But it is also large enough to accommodate two families with ease.

The surrounding area offers lots to engage and appeal to a variety of interests. Lectoure is a cultural center for the area, with a number of excellent cafes and restaurants, weekly night and daytime open markets, plus modern grocery shopping. A number of wonderful farmers markets are within easy reach, the magical Bordeaux wine region is only an hour away and there is the fabulous Canal de Garonne for tow-path walks and bicycle rides. Slightly further afield there is the magical historical city of Carcassone or the fabled beaches of Les Dunes de Pilat. But most people are blissfully happy just to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the house, garden and pool!

About Laura DeCouto

We are a large family with adult children and their families who love socialising and getting together as often as possible. We have lived abroad for many years and you will find subtle influences from different cultures throughout the house. I worked for many years as an interior designer and have now shifted to Nutritional Therapy, both careers influencing the spaces and the facilities of the house (for example, the pool is not chlorinated because of the very negative health effects of swimming in chlorinated water).

Laura DeCouto purchased this farmhouse in 2006

Why Laura DeCouto chose Lectoure

Apart from the view (!) we fell in love with Lafont because there is loads of space, both inside and out which allow us to be all together without cramping each other’s style. Perfect for small children and parties of older adults, the house is welcoming and relaxed offering something for everyone.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Multiple terraces so you can follow the sun all day, or relax in the shade as you wish, huge salt-water pool, fully equipped farmhouse kitchen, three large reception areas, separate laundry room, stunning West-facing terrace (perfect for sun-downers), super-comfy beds and luxury bathrooms.
