This stunning French stone refined Barn has been beautifully and lovingly renovated, filled with charm and character with the original beams and open stonework. A bright country style kitchen with all modern appliances, gas hob and oven, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. This leads out onto the side terrace with a pergola covered in a gorgeous climbing campsis and has a built in BBQ for 'alfresco' dining and surrounded by hazelnut trees which a family of red squirrels visit quite often!

The living area has comfortable sofas and chairs. TV with English channels, DVD player and a selection of DVD's. Plenty of toys, books and games to keep the kids amused inside and outside!

The French doors leads out onto the back terrace which over looks the weeping willow trees and shaded hammocks - great place for quiet book reading! The swimming pool area which is fenced, hedged and gated for safety has a lovely oak pavilion to relax inside when you wish to escape from the heat of the day and there are comfy sun loungers and parasols.

The large, mature and well kept gardens are for you all to explore, relax in and enjoy! There is also has a great children's play park with a trampoline, swings, slide, sandpit and table tennis.

About Tracy Scott

I just love, love love France and the beauty it has to offer! The weather is great and local markets with a large selection of home produce is simply delicious!!

I love spending time with my beautiful family, gardening, meeting people and enjoy the simple things out of life.

At La Borie grande, our perfect haven, to chill out and relax and take life at a slightly slower pace!

Tracy Scott purchased this barn in 2003

Wonderful, peaceful, stress free

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to the gites, we just love the whole setting, the little villages and Tracy, Bob and family are just so lovely, that nothing is a problem.

We are already booked for next year and our family of two adults and two young children cannot wait to go back- we never want to come home!!

I cannot express how delightful these establishments are, you will have to book and see for yourselves!!

The gites and pool are to a high standard and the play area and animals are great entertainment for the children.

The village is around 10 minutes walk away but you can park your car no problem in one of the several car parks. There are two small grocery stores, two bakers, a butcher, several restaurants and a post office amongst other shops.

If you cannot speak the language, just give it a go and they will help you.

A trip on a canoe down the dordogne is a must with a very gentle pace, you can see loads of interesting sites.

If you have young children, the aquarium is a good day out.
