About Imelda and John Spencer

We love to provide a top rate holiday property for others to enjoy. We provide a friendly service and appreciate that you as clients may want to be able to talk to us either by phone or email at any time- so please do not hesitate to contact us and we will answer any questions you may have. All our whole family enjoy staying together at La Grange du Noyer as our second home- a great place to stay, rest and enjoy the company of family and friends.

Imelda and John Spencer purchased this house in 2006

Why Imelda and John Spencer chose Cornac

We fell in love with the barn the moment we saw it. We restored it from its original function as a working barn and cow shed. We lovingly dedicated every holiday from 2001 to 2006 transforming it into the cosy, comfortable beautifully appointed and equipped barn that is enjoyed by all our clients. The area and local people are so welcoming. The scenery and villages are breathtakingly beautiful.

We would love to welcome you and your family.

What makes this house unique

REST, RELAX, EXPLORE and HAVE FUN.

If you enjoy art- metal work, sculptors, paintings- well the village will have much to offer you. We are so fortunate to have so many artists in residence. An evening stroll around the village will delight you. See some examples in the photos.

Absolutely wonderful accommodation !!

How wonderful to have spent a big family Christmas at the cosy, beautifully equipped Barn. Imelda and John ensured that two beautiful Christmas trees were decorated for our arrival and a warm fire welcomed us. They provided a welcome hamper full of goodies. We spent a truly special time there- I would really recommend spending Christmas at La Grange du Noyer in pretty Cornac village.

A lovely property in a peaceful location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this beautiful barn conversion in September 2009. We were very pleased with the way Imelda handled our late booking and subsequent queries. The barn is a spacious, very well appointed, attractive home with good quality fittings throughout. There is a small garden with all the garden furniture you could need and of course a great pool.
The village is quiet with no bar or restaurant but the nearest village is only a couple of miles away.

We used the barn as a base for cycling (bikes arranged for us by Imelda) canoeing on the Dordogne, touring this very pretty area, river swimming and walking in the hills. All of which are available nearby.

The house has lots of useful information booklets to help you plan your time. A car is essential.

We would thoroughly recommend this place to anyone.

The old, pretty village of Cornac is situated in the picturesque Lot region of France. Cornac used to be a wine producing village and is close to the wine producing Glanes area. Pilgrims used to pass through Cornac on their way to Santiago del Compostella, Spain. From the top of the nearby hill you can enjoy the view of the village Tuesdays and Saturdays are the days to visit the bustling market town of Bretenoux, which is also one of the bastide towns renowned in the area. The route from the A20 motorway, exiting at Cressensac, takes you through the village of Martel with its nine towers and past Vayrac, where it is said that the Gauls made their last stand against the Romans. There are so many pretty villages to see- the honey coloured stonework adds charm to the picture postcard look. The ambiance of the area helps you to unwind as soon as you arrive in the area. But when energy levels are high again there are plenty of sporting activites available- skiing is only 1 1/2 hours way by train or car .

Other Activities: Kayaking, Quad Biking, Animal Parks, Chateaux, Prehistoric sites, Churches.
