About Denise Gilmour
We purchased La Vielle Scierie what it was a literally, as the estate agent put it, 'just a barn'. It did not have doors or windows and was half timbered, literally it had been a working saw shed. There was one solitary cold tap in the corner. After looking for 18 months in many other areas of the Dordogne within a two hour drive, in every direction, we kept coming back to this area. We had repeatedly holidayed in the area with our own children, staying in a variety of Gites. We decided in 1999 that it was time to start looking for our own 'little piece of paradise'. When we saw the barn we fell in love with the position, 'location, location', the views across the valley and the beautiful old stone construction. The estate agent thought we were made, but it had the 'tingle factor'. from 2001 onwards worked hard to restor the property and turn into the lovely home it is today. We have had so many lovely times in the garden with our children inside the barn, entertaining our friends. It is a very cosy social property. Despite the large open plan design of the interior we have managed to make it cosy and comfortable and are please to have received many compliments from our guests.
Denise Gilmour purchased this barn in 2000
Why Denise Gilmour chose Coux et Bigaroque
Why should you rent our lovely Saw Mill? Because it has been lovingly restored to a very high standard, because it is very well equipped, because it has fabulous gardens to relax in, because it is well positioned for great walks along the river banks, because it is close to all the main sites of the Perigord Noir, because it is surrouned by fabulous restaurants, food markets, national heritage sites, and many many more things. You can be active or you can use it as a tranquil retreat,.
What makes this barn unique
This is not just a 'base' to explore the Dordogne and the Perigord Noir, it is a well equipped home with a WoW factor that you can enjoy, it will make your stay twice as enjoyable. Before we were lucky enough to have our own property we spent many years staying in gites that were poorly equpped, cluttered and unclean, until we found a stone property that had been renovated and equipped as a 'home' to the standard the owners themselves wanted, we then repeatedly booked year after year. This is what we have aimed to do, equip and furnish the property to the standard that we expect for ourselves, it is not a temporary furnish, this is our home and we hope that all who stay enjoy the property just as much as the beautiful area it sits in.
