Cottage La Ferme in Blanquefort sur Briolance
Cottage La Ferme in Blanquefort sur briolance in Lot et Garonne

The Mayne farm is composed of two large stone buildings. The most recent one, the cowshed, was built less than a century ago. This “barn” -  as people call it – sheltered hay and straw, along with about fifteen Aquitaine cows up until the beginning of the the 1980s. These cows produced  calves called milk calves, since they were only fed on their mother's milk.

On the other side of the yard is a long building that faces south. It has been through the revolution, and 250 years later still stands tall against  the southerly wind that warms up its walls from solstice to equinox.

Surrounding the farm, fifteen hectares of farmland preserving the residents' tranquility make for a faraway horizon line from north to south, from dusk till dawn. This creates a vast view of hills and dales.

I have decided to greet you here, in this house that has witnessed the birth of several generations of farmers who fed the country for centuries, before being swept aside by industrial and profitable-oriented agriculture.

The Holiday gîte “La Ferme” (“The Farm”) has thus been located in this family home that I restored according to traditional methods with wood, local tile and stone, and that I insulated for your comfort with materials respecting the “high environmental quality” standards: wood wool, earth and lime coatings, and double-glazing (wood and aluminum) for doors and windows.

On 120 square meters, the farm opens on to a hallway with cachet that gives way to two rooms, including one with access for the disabled. From the entrance, you can also access a laundry, an independent toilet and a large 50 square meter living room. This main room facing south-east features a fully-equipped kitchen with a large storage space, as well as a living-room, a dining room, and a deck facing the sunrise and leading to a private garden.I chose to preserve in good working condition the old chimney in which my grandmother and mother used to cook duck “grattons” and polenta with the ultra-fine flour from white corn. Preserved through time, this chimney has a heat recovery system to warm up mid-season evenings.
