This property has been lovingly restored, with accommodation to sleep up to eight people. It consists of two double bedrooms, a family room, two shower rooms (one of which is en-suite) and a bathroom. Downstairs is open-plan with fully-equipped lounge, kitchen and dining areas. The surrounding courtyard and land provide a choice of areas for dining outside, for which a barbecue is provided. There is also a good size above-ground pool for a refreshing plunge.

This peaceful, remote setting in the heart of the Périgord Noir, is positioned on the outskirts of a charming village, St Laurent La Vallée, which possesses a delightful Bar/Restaurant and a very useful general store.

The surrounding countryside brings many opportunities for outdoor activities, such as walking, cycling, hot-air ballooning, fishing, golf, horseback riding, canoeing and swimming.

The property is well positioned for visiting the many local historical attractions, not forgetting the vineyards of Bergerac.

Heating: There is a large wood burner in the open-plan area downstairs which heats the ground floor extremely well, logs can be provided. There are also electric heaters in the bedrooms which provide sufficient heating in the colder periods.

So tranquil yet close to amenities and sights!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Matthew and Susie's gite was pure delight. The accommodation is a beautifully converted "barn" with lovely, spacious living spaces, comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms, very well equipped kitchen and all the comforts of home. The peaceful location, the resounding quiet, the warm, clean, fragrant summer air and the dark night-sky, covered with stars one normally never sees, conspire to make one wish to stay forever.

The incredible thing is that you can have this quality of peace and quiet and still be only 20 minutes away from the Dordogne River with its châteaux, its breath-taking gardens, the scenic boat rides etc. Restaurants are close-by as are speciality shops (for the truffle and fois-gras lovers) and other shops for day to day things.

Sarlat, a medieval town nearby, is very well preserved and is "one of the towns most representative of 14th century France". The centre of the old town is a feast for the eyes and easy on the legs with many places to sit, have a coffee or cold drink, while absorbing the atmosphere.

Belvès, also nearby, has been designated as one of the prettiest towns in France.
In fact, there is so much to see that we felt cheated at not having had enough time to just enjoy staying at "home", at the gite.

Matthew and Susie are very warm, friendly and ready to help with every request. The photo album showing their labours, in converting a derelict property into the lovely abode it is now, is fascinating and makes one appreciate the result even more.

Sitting outside on our last evening, glass of wine in hand, seeing the potted red geranium against the rich green of the meadow touched by the late afternoon sun, had us logging onto the Internet in a desperate attempt to reschedule our flights home. Not possible, alas.... but no matter because we will try our hardest to return as soon as possible.

Beautiful barn in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with our 3 young children for 2 weeks last summer and had a fantastic holiday. The barn is so well equipped and sympathetically restored with great attention to detail. It is perfectly located in a rural and peaceful valley with wonderful views, yet it is only a short drive to all the major sights. We especially loved the overground pool and the spacious grounds for the children to run around in. Matthew and Susie were great hosts, providing us with a bit of local knowledge and advice and delicious peaches from the garden! The local restaurant serves the best moules frites for miles around and the night markets at close by Bouzic and St Pompont were hard to beat as well. We will be back!

Excellente location à découvrir

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons passés de très agréables vacances dans cette grange rénovée.
La maison est très bien située car elle est isolée (calme et dépaysement assurés) et en même temps à quelques km des principaux lieux touristiques du Périgord Noir.
Les espaces sont bien répartis car nous avons réussi à cohabiter à 2 couples + 4 enfants.
Nous avons été très bien accueillis par les propriétaires et leur discrétion nous laissait penser qu'il n'y avait que nous sur les lieux.
Nous reviendrons surement si l'avenir nous le permet.

Nous avons passé une semaine très sympa avec tout le calme, l'espace et le confort dans cette très jolie grange décorée avec beaucoup de goût et de chaleur.
Les propriétaires sont disponibles et d'une gentilesse rare. Tout est prévu dans la maison, rien ne manque. On y retournera avec grand plaisir.
Je le recommande vivement à tout ceux qui veulent se promener et visiter et le calme et la détente au retour des excursions.

Beautiful converted barn in idyllic spot

  • 5 of 5
We can't thank Matthew & Susie enough for a fantastic week in their beautiful, tasteful & sympathetically restored barn. The bedrooms and bathrooms are all decorated to a high standard and we felt relaxed and home from home, Our two teenaged boys aged 19 & 15 loved chilling out with the wi-fi, relaxing on the sunloungers and cooling down in the dip pool. We enjoyed eating the local food at the various evening markets and also the festivities & fireworks at the nearby village of Daglan.
There is plenty to do & see from visiting castles to canoeing on the river.
It was a great holiday for everyone as Susie & Matthew have thought of everything so all we needed to do was relax and unwind.
