We set out on an adventure and a totally new way of life in 2009, when we discovered 2 stone barns, very much calling out for renovation. Both leaving behind our jobs, we began a 3 year project to make these our home, and are now pleased to be able to share these with others. We enjoy the slower pace of life here, and being part of a village community is a real joy. Sitting out on a summers evening with a glass of wine, and a few friends, is both relaxing and rewarding. Kay and Glenn

Kay Doney purchased this barn in 2009

We fell in love with this property purely on it's location, which is beautiful. We intended to buy a house ready to move into with the potential for a Gite for rental. Instead we bought two empty shells, be it they had new windows and roof! For us being right in the centre of the village was important, and the beautiful countryside which surrounds us is a bonus. The village is only small, but we have a small primary school, library, shop and restaurant. We will never cease to be amazed at where we live and the wonderful neighbours we have.

Looking out of the bedroom window in the morning and seeing the sun lighting up the village square, or late at night looking up at the stars sparkling in the night sky is wonderful. No light pollution here. Having our two properties on one site was a real bonus, which has allowed us to be able to share our little piece of French rural life with others, from which we get a great deal of pleasure.

This rental property was accurate to the description and was clean and well maintained by the owners, who live next door.

The owners were available if you had a question and offered very good customer service. The pool was the biggest draw for our family as we have children and it was beautiful and clean and they loved it.

The nearest town was Montignac which was a 5/10 minute drive and Sarlat was approximately 40 minutes drive away which has a fabulous market and I would highly recommend to visit although it can get very busy in high season.

We also loved a little local restaurant in the village where we stayed called Le Bareil, it offers beautiful, traditional, freshly cooked French cuisine at very good prices.

A car is a necessity for this location to see and appreciate this beautiful region in full.

We had a great family holiday, peaceful yet accessible.

absolutely beautiful property

  • 5 of 5
Excellent property, with wonderful owners for whom nothing was too much trouble.
Very well presented and equipped, even a pool cover has recently been added- which covers the pool at night to reduce heat loss, keeping the temperature of this superb swimming pool just right.
We stayed as a family group with two very young children, both thoroughly enjoying their first holiday.
Lots to see and do in the area, Sarlat is lovely and the market is very interesting, we went on several occasions to Montinac which was the nearest place to shop, and has many places to eat. We also found a nice restaurant in Les Eyzies called "Mentalo" where we found the staff to give excellent service and the prices were very reasonable. Locally 'le Bariel' was a restaurant not to be missed.
Glenn and Kay are very knowledgable about the area and give many useful tips and recommendations.
We will be looking to stay again.

Lovely accommodation in a very pretty village

  • 5 of 5
This house is ideally located for exploring the many sights around the Dordogne and Vezere rivers in the beautiful Perigord Noir. The pretty town of Montignac with it's numerous restaurants along the lovely riverside is only 5 mins drive away. The larger town of Sarlat with it's many historical buildings is about 20 mins drive and is really nice by day and really comes to life at night. We canoed from Vitrac to Beynac during our stay and would definitely recommend this - very relaxing and spectacular views (you get a lift back to starting point in a mini bus). The house itself is situated in a beautiful, peaceful and typically French village where you can walk to fetch fresh croissants from the local store every morning.The house and pool area are immaculate and very well maintained. It was a real treat to stay in such a lovely place and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend to our family or friends and would use again if visiting the Dordogne in the future. Kay and Glenn were wonderful hosts who take a real pride in offering high quality accommodation and excellent customer service.

A Perfect Relaxing Base

  • 5 of 5
We had an excellent time and thoroughly recommend this gite. We are seriously considering booking again. Kay and Glen made us very welcome and the house has everything you need. The pool is a great and a good size, the beds comfy, kitchen well equipped, the showers effective, etc. etc.

It's a very relaxing base - the village is lovely, very small, quiet and friendly - this suited us. We spent a few lazy days by the pool, intermittently watching Froome winning the Tour de France. Cooking meals in the gite or BBQ isn't a chore either given the great facilities which include a second fridge for the beer and fizz :) The only downside is that you will need to travel if you want to eat out. Nearby Montignac, a few minutes away has plenty of restaurants to choose from, all overlooking the river in a gorgeous setting. Sarlat, a bit further away has even more.

It's perfectly situated for sightseeing and there is no end of things to visit less than an hour's drive away. We certainly didn't exhaust the possibilities in our two weeks. Lascaux is very close and is an obvious destination. Other than that, check the Rough Guide for attractions in and around the Dordogne and Vezere valleys and see what takes your fancy - caves, chateaux, markets, gardens, canoeing on the river, etc. Just about everything is on your doorstep and you won't go wrong whatever you choose to do.

We didn't have bikes with us, but it would be perfect for cycling (so long as you don't mind a few hills). I'll definitely be taking my bike next time. Glen cycles regularly and I'm sure he'd be able to recommend some good routes on the countless quiet country lanes.

If you want a relaxing, well-equipped gite with a friendly atmosphere, in an area with too many amazing sights to see, this is the gite for you.

The property is situated in the ever popular Perigord Noir region of the Dordogne between the Dordogne and Vezere rivers. The historical town of Sarlat-la Caneda, with more listed buildings than any other town in Europe is just 20 minutes away, and we are perfectly placed for the most beautiful sites in the Dordogne and Lot.

The area is perfect for both walkers and cyclists with plenty of footpaths and tracks, weaving through forest and countryside affording some superb views. Along with quiet lanes, even at the peak season, you can see something different everyday.

There are numerous Chateaux to visit, caves to explore and pretty market towns to meander through, and wherever you are, you are never to far from good food and wine, or if you prefer coffee and pastries. For the more energetic and adventurous, along with walking and cycling there is quad biking, paragliding, karting, horse riding, water parks, swimming lakes and of course canoing on both the Dordogne and Vezere rivers. So whether you are a family or on your own there is so much to keep you interested.

Sarlat, one of the jewels of France, it is a town not to be missed with its Medieval centre which is full of hidden delights in it's myriad of lanes and alleys, guided walks are available from the Tourist Office. The town bustles especially on market days but take time to sit in a cafe or bar and watch life going on in the way provincial France does best, taking time to chat to friends and being social.

Finding a place to get good food to eat is simple as there are many restaurants and cafes where you can sample food at it's best. One of the best experience's of eating in Sarlat is just wandering through this historic town choosing just the right place for you.

Montignac which straddles the Vezere river is a charming small market town with a cosy and friendly atmosphere. There are many restaurants and bars to relax in. If you are here in the last week of July there is an international music festival which is both colourful and vibrant, with musicians and dancers in traditional costume performing in the streets.

The Vezere Valley is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is renowned for it's many prehistoric sites, including the world famous Lascaux caves, Font de Gaume, Roque St Christophe, a Troglodyte village, along with the array of castles and Chateaux.

The cliff top fortified towns of Beynac, Domme and Castlenaud on the Dordogne river should be experienced. Then there are the many Villages de France in the area all worth a visit.

One trip to make into the Lot is to Rocamadour which is a beautiful town and a pilgrimage for many who believe in the healing powers there. Whilst there, take a trip to the Gouffre de Padirac ,which is stunning, with boat ride through the caves and one of the most popular trips our guests take.
