About Karen Carter
The owners are Alan and Karen Carter, we are South African,. We have travelled and lived in America and the UK and included all the things we like to have when we are away from home. We discovered the Dordogne in 2008 when we visited a friend who owns a property outside Tremolat. We both have fallen in love with the area. Alan and I would like to share our beautiful farmhouse and now recently our newly RENOVATED barn with anyone who loves fabulous food, unbelievable scenery, amazing history, and peace. The peace you too discover.
Karen Carter purchased this Barn in 2011
Why Karen Carter chose Trémolat
We fell in love with Tremolat and the beautiful Dordogne region when we visited in 2008 We have returned every year since that trip and we now have our beautiful cottage. Tremolat itself offers 4 superb restaurants and 1 wine bar and is within easy reach of wine regions such as Bordeaux, Begerac, Pecharment, and the lovely smooth wines of Monbazzilac ( gorgeous with fois gras), It is also within easy driving distance of wonderful historical sites such as Baynac and Castlenaud Castles, 1 hour from the paleolithic sites such as Les Eysiers. We are in easy access (only 35 km from Bergerac Airport, Bordeaux Airport is a 2 hour drive from the house)
What makes this Barn unique
The barn at Les Chouettes is a beautiful place to escape from the hustle and bustle of ones crazy life. It overlooks a walnut orchard which offers peace and tranquility.

The Jewel of the Dordogne
From the first time we heard of this beautiful place to the sad day that we had to leave we were mesmerized by this absolutely stunning part of the world.
The cottage and the barn allowed us to move in and live as if we were at home with everything you would need and more.
Wonderful evenings by the fireplace and early morning jogs made the stay special and we will definitely be back in the future!!
Thank you Karen for such an incredible holiday. You made it very special for us.
Thank you for your wonderful review. I am thrilled that you and your family were able to see and do so much in the Dordogne Valley. I believe you enjoyed many wonderful meals and had a great wine experience with Max our local sommelier from the Duck and Truffle.
A perfect French cottage
Les Chouettes is a charming truly French cottage. It was very comfortable and well equipped. The location is perfect for making day trips to many of the beautiful villages and historic sites in the Dordogne and other areas of the Perigord. The owner and the property manager were very accommodating. I would highly recommend this property for your vacation in the Dordogne.
Thank you for being superb guests. We are thrilled that you managed to see so much of the Périgord. It is truly magical. We are pleased that all our roses bloomed in time for your visit too.
The French Country Cottage , Les Chouttes, is just that except it is warm, cozy and charming too
Jon & I recently spent 4 days at this delightful country retreat! Quiet & peaceful, it truly is home from home with every comfort from heated towel rails, comfy furnishings to warm cozy duvets! It is tastefully decorated and Karen , your hostess, has thought of EVERYTHING! There are bikes to ride, a swimming pool for summer and a volleyball net.
it is a 15-20min walk into Le Tremolat where you will find from Pizza to Fine dining! sightseeing in the area is breathtaking and find out if max will be available from the Duck & Truffle for a wine tour or 2. Definately needs a spot on your bucket list!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review.
You are fabulous guests. We hope that you will return soon.
lovely barn conversion in a beautiful and peaceful location.
The property is well equipped and very easy to stay in in. Location is excellent: only a 15 - 20 minute walk into Tremolat, which is just enough to build up an appetite when you walk in to get your morning baguette and croissants. A couple of good restaurants in the village and others in the area. Lovely clear skies.
We had a fantastic two weeks.
Dear Simon Thank you for taking the time to write a review about our property and the village. We are thrilled you enjoyed your time and were able to explore the countryside and the wonderful restaurants in the area. We hope that you will return soon.
Really lovely property in a great location
This is a very well done barn renovation. My partner and I stayed here with two friends for a week and there was plenty of room for us all. The property was very clean, well maintained and stocked with all the utilities you could need.
Ideal location, quiet but restaurants and bakery within walking distance, and plenty of castles and places to visit within an hour's drive.
Would strongly recommend.
Thank you for taking the time to review our beautiful barn. We are pleased that you enjoyed staying at the barn and were able to explore so many wonderful places that the Dordogne Valley has to offer.
