Overview

You will find this house in the small mediaeval town of Le Dorat in a quiet region north of Limoges. Le Dorat is classified as « Small town with character ». La Maison du Musicaïre is the private residence of the Dutch conductor Wim Baarens who left his position as artistic leader of the Netherlands Radio Chamber Orchestra 20 years ago to start a new musical life in south-western France.



Once you have passed the entrance, with its inviting heart above the doorway, carved in local granite, your are immediately struck by the overwhelming charm of the patio with its flowering wisteria and the large beautiful garden with an abundance of roses, herbs, fruit trees and a variety of other plants. This completely walled garden hides several small buildings including an orangerie, a horsestable and woodsheds. The beautiful ocre colors of the outside walls, the old round roman tiles and the split level garden give the impression that you are on holiday in Tuscany.



The interior of the house dating from 1774 has been restored over the last 4 years under the supervision of the architect responsible for the French National Monuments. All the inside walls are decorated with lime and natural colors which give the interior of the house a very warm, smooth and velvet character.



On the first floor you will find a music room graced with old beams, a marble chimney, a beautiful parquet floor in which is a Gaveau grand piano and a period English Broadwood type piano dating from the time of Schubert. A T.V and a huge collection of CD's of mainly classical music are at your disposal.



Two double guestrooms with 2 basins, a large shower & WC en suite were restored in the spring of 2004 and are now available for guests. Both rooms face the garden side of the house.
