About the property

Newly renovated 2 Bedroom plus lounge/bedroom barn overlooking a walnut orchard

This beautiful old 1811 barn has been beautifully decorated to create a modern luxurious space. Situated only 1 km from the very popular Tremolat which has 5 great restaurants in a very small area.

The barn is also available to be used in conjunction with the cottage , which enables one to either rent as a single unit or together. This means you may bring your family and friends or simply utilise the space on its own.

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

Superb location and high quality acomm standards

  • 5 of 5

Lovely setting, very close to high quality and established French restaurants. Ideal for families and couples to enjoy the local outdoor activities near and away from some spectacular rivers. There is also a good number of English spoken by the very friendly local residents. It's a place to admire which will no doubt draw you in again for on-going visits.

Fascinating France

  • 5 of 5

Charming, spacious and comfortable, the converted barn has been our home for a week. Comfy beds, loads of space, a plunge pool for those brave enough to test the waters, wonderful walks and seriously good restaurants near by.

Centrally situated, an ideal base to explore the vineyards, villages and towns of the region.

Thank you Simon for your kind attention, and Karen for sharing this lovely spot.

Beautiful well equipped barn

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week staying in the Dordogne made even better by staying in this wonderful barn. We really loved the open feel of it. There was everything you needed for your stay and more. As a bonus there was lots of everything i.e. Glasses

I could not fault it in anyway, a truly 5* holiday let.
