LA PETITE GRANGE

Sarlat la Caneda Barn Rental Photos and Description

Sarlat, Dordogne, four character cottages, original features and stunning views.

Lovingly restored, La Ferme de La Tour is an ensemble of beautiful old farm buildings dating back to the 16th century. Overlooking 2 1/2 acres of parkland, are four impeccably presented cottages / barn conversions, and a large chlorine free heated swimming pool. High on a hill, at the top of a valley, we are surrounded by magnificent countryside, a network of pretty footpaths and a neighbouring historical château. The breathtaking valley views, gardens and huge skies will overwhelm you with a feeling of peace and tranquility disturbed only by the abundance of wildlife and the occasional distant tractor. The pool, which is bathed in sunshine from dawn to dusk, is perfectly sited to maximise the views enabling you to watch the ever changing colours of the Dordogne valley. Each gite has excellent WIFI reception. See more details and photos on our personal website

WIFI is available throughout, with individual boosters in each gite, ensuring a good reception no matter where you are..........

On site activities include table tennis, boules, badminton, football net and swings..

We welcome families and couples alike, but sorry no children under five years of age and no pets.

Friendly but unobtrusive owners live on site...

We are an average family of four that originate from the village of Wroxham in Norfolk in the east of England.

Why did we move to France ? Why not...... We are, or should I say were, the same as most working families in the western world, devoted parents, but having to give ourselves and far too much time to careers which involve long hours and stress. So we looked for an alternative and France seemed like the right choice. The choice provided us with more stress and longer hours than you can imagine and for the first three or four years it was extremely hard work, both physically and mentally. However we are now reaping the benefits and enjoying our new life to the full, in one of the most beautiful areas we could have dreamed of living.

Chris and Kate Waters purchased this barn in 2004

We moved lock stock and barrel to the Sarlat area in 2004, buying a set of empty farm buildings that needed far too much work. But the position and the views had us hooked and nothing came anywhere near a close second. So here we are nine years on and the renovation complete, but not without some real highs and lows and a vast collection of stories and experiences.

The position is magical and just not possible to capture in a picture.

We have been extremely lucky to find a property with such a formula of character, views and location. We are close to Sarlat, which is the jewel of the Dordogne, yet in a truly rural setting in stunning countryside.

HOUSE HUNTING HOLIDAY..

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week before Christmas in La Petite Grange at La Ferme de La Tour and loved it. We are a family of four and came to Dordogne on a house hunting trip ( third time ).
We found the gite really comfortable and super clean which was a welcome as I am fastidious about cleanliness. The furnishings are all of a good quality and really comfortable from beds to sofa and chairs which is unusual in our experience of French gites. The gite was light and spacious and although the second bedroom is a little smaller with bunks beds our two thought these were great fun. The surrounding area is packed with history and scenery and although we haven't found our new house yet we hope to do so soon and will definitely be back to stay with Kate and Chris who couldn't have been more helpful, especially with all the local knowledge. Highly recommended..Thank you....

THE CROFTS ON TOUR

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at La Petite Grange after a day on the road and what a welcome. The gite was warm and so cozy. We soon settled in and found that we had everything we needed for a family of four, very well equipped. The outside terrace was super for eating outside even in December we had three very mild days. Our visit to Dordogne was mostly for house hunting purposes but we also did lots of walking and sightseeing. Chris and Kate had provided a brilliant book with all the local info and details of things to do and some great walks. Lovely gite very clean and very well appointed. Our thanks to Chris and Kate. If we have not bought a house in the area within the next twelve months then we will be back.

AMAZING STUNNING GITE!

  • 5 of 5
This was a return visit to this gite - we originally visited in 2011 with our 6 month old twins, and returned in 2013 (now almost 3)

The owners are lovely - both visits they have helped us out with small modifications to ensure our stay was as easy as possible with young children.

The gite itself is fautless - it contains everything you can need, ample space, and is spotlessly clean. The undercover external patio was fantastic - especially on a few rainy days for the children to be able to run around.
The extensive garden and pool were amazing - more than enough to wear out 2 very active toddlers!

The location is great - lots of things to see and do within reasonable distance, but far enough out to be completly peaceful on days when we did not want to venture out.

My In-laws stayed in the gite next door, Le Fournil. This was equally fautless - and a great way to go on holiday together without him having to suffer the early mornings of our twins!

We can't wait to return again!

GOOD

  • 4 of 5
Very good location for visiting the area. The accommodation was a bit cramped though for a family of 4 although there were only the 2 of us most of the time which was fine. The kitchen, bathroom and second bedroom were all on the small side compared to other gites we have stayed in. The sheltered patio was superb though with the wonderful views over the valley below. I would gladly recommend this property but not for 4 people - they would be treading over one another! As for places to visit, there was so much to see and do that I could not even begin to show any preferences.

THE MILES FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
What’s to say that hasn't already been said. If it’s not the beautiful countryside or the warm inviting pool, the lovely accommodation or the surrounding peace, then it’s the wonderful hosts that you have come for. Chris and Kate couldn't have been more accommodating and made our holiday in every way perfect. The children enjoyed the pool every day which was warm, clean and safe and especially enjoyed the late night swims that Chris kindly organised. I’m writing this 2 months after our return and the thought of being there still puts a smile on my face. We left with heavy hearts, but sure that we would return one day. I always enjoy a holiday where you can relax from day one which is easily achieved at Ferme La Tour. If you are thinking about booking, I can save you some time and deliberation…..just do it, you’ll be very pleased you did.
