Scarpat in June 2012

A beautiful, oak staircase follows up to the sleeping area. There are two double rooms and a large mezzanine area. For flexible sleeping options, this area offers an additional double bed and two singles.

Scarpat in June 2012

The Open Mezzanine can be screened off for complete privacy.

The two double rooms. All set in the original roof beams.

Although the barn is a wonderfully large space and there are enough beds to sleep up to six adults and two children, due to its open plan nature and the single bathroom being located on the ground floor, we only recommend this property for up to four adults or a single family. The extra beds are there to provide flexibility when deciding who sleeps where!

The barn is available to rent in mid to peak season and only as an addition to the gite rental.
