Au Perier, situated in the Dordogne in southwest France, is like a tiny, relaxed village: four houses, a central square, a pool, an open barn and a vegetable garden. In 2011 the owners Annemieke den Uijl and Nick White bought the property along with the old house dating to 1794 and converted the three outbuildings into holiday homes. “La Grange” is the former barn, which once was used for drying plums and wine-making. It features a double height combined living, dining and kitchen area with exposed beams. “La Ferme” once served as the residence of the farm workers, “Les Etables” used to be a shed divided in four very small stables. Hidden behind the rustic walls there are monochrome furnished rooms in an industrial design which highlights the old building’s substance, including old roof beams and stone walls. All the cottages have well-equipped kitchens, as Annemieke den Uijl once ran a restaurant in Amsterdam. Now, holiday guests can enjoy her cooking at the weekly dinner in the open barn.
