A Charming Farmhouse in a quaint rural village.
Built in the 1600s, with barn and terrace, with views of farmers fields.
Our family acquired the property in 1973. It had not been lived in for 50 years. We spent 5 loving years restoring the home. There is an outdoor bread oven attached to the house and a chicken coup we made into the bath and laundry room.
Our family is very much part of the village and surrounding towns. So, your experience here will be very authentic.
Baran is situated in the heart of the Perigord Noir between St Cyprien and Sarlat, surrounded by Bergerac, Perigeux and Les Eyzies, where many of the famous limestone caves and cliffs are home of paintings and engravings of Cro-Magnon man.
This is truly a very special part of the world.

We are a family of 5 siblings who grew up with adventurous parents introducing us to the joys of travel and history. Our mom and dad, Betty and Bob Boynton purchased this home and after spending 5 years renovating, Betty lived there for 25 years from May through October. We have had many special family celebrations here and invite you to share our love of the Dordogne!
My family fell in love with this area in France and couldn't leave without finding property to buy.
Our little Hamlet of Baran is so authentic, only 17 homes, yet in what we call 'the center of the universe' for pre-historic cave paintings and etchings, castles, good restaurants and we love the weather. We are close to the mountains and the oceans and 7 rivers. Every year when we start driving along the Dordogne River an undescribable feeling comes over us. And, we have yet to see everything there is to see, even after 37 years!! The best of all, the people are so friendy. We love our village and we feel so loved back.
Visiting the most dense area of limestone caves, abris, gouffres of anywhere in the world, hundreds of castles and chateaux, 1 castle per every 10 square miles, Baran is in the center of all these attractions
