About Barry Jackson

The property is owned by myself and my wife with a friend and his wife. My friend and I were at university together. We are both in the Building Industry. We purchased this derelict milking barn in 1991 as a project to restore an old building into a holiday property for our families. We use the property ourselves each year and a number of our friends and families have visited over the years. My wife and I celebrated our 20th and 25th wedding anniversaries here. It is an great place for gathering family and friends.

Why Barry Jackson chose Saint-Germain-de-Belvès

My wife and I and our 2 young daughters spent several summers touring and camping in France and Italy in the late 80`s. In 1991 My friend from University days suggested buying a property to renovate in France. As we had loved the Dordogne region so much this is where we looked. We decided on this property as it would provide a certain amount of independence as two houses but have a community feel so families and groups of friends could enjoy time together in comfort with plenty of facilities. Two kitchens are great when preparing meals for big groups.

The area itself is magnificent. It is steeped in history and tradition yet has all the modern amenities and facilities you need and have grown to expect on holiday.

The property is quite private but close to the local services.

What makes this barn unique

Please visit our website for more photos & floor plans.

The property is well equipped & makes self catering on holiday an enjoyment rather than a chore. The BBQ is a great attraction and social point; with the outside covered dining area meals can last for hours.

The pool & outside areas are illuminated so evenings can be spent outside. There are contrasts from front to rear of the property, the rear has the dining & the pools, the front has the grass & sports.

There is ample shade to both areas as it can be hot in the summer.

You can relax at the property, be active, use a bike for a tour around or venture further afield to an old Chateau, village or cave. Or even canoe on the river or play tennis. There are many traditional markets and a large selection of restaurants close by.

Guestbook comments from the owner

* Over the years we have had a number of repeat bookings, one client has returned 7 times.

* Just to say that we had a fantastic time at la grange for our holiday 2 weeks from 22 July

Absolutely fantastic location, with fabulous facilities and great space both indoors and outdoors

Enjoyed being sat out in the front under the shade of the trees on warm days. Golf club has a small bar which is within walking distance and in a lovely setting and is v reasonably priced on both food and drink
