About Christine and Gerard PARISET

After numerous working years in Paris, we were looking for a pleasant resort with a soft and sunny climate and a happy, active and welcoming population to live and work finally on the open air.

It is what we found in La Barrat,

Christine and Gerard PARISET purchased this barn in 2014

Guestbook comments from the manager

« Un très bel endroit calme , reposant et dépaysant (moi qui viens du Nord...) Un accueil très chaleureux, des hôtes charmants et discrets, J'ai aussi apprécier la piscine par des apm à plus de 30 degrés. .. Situé non loin de belles visites à faire dans la région (vous avez la documentation à l'intérieur du gîte ) . A ne pas manquer, le marché d'Issigeac à moins de 10 mn le dimanche matin. Enfin, à ne pas rater si vous passez dans la région!!

Un grand Merci à Gérard et Christine pour leur accueil, leur gentillesse. Un gîte top dans un endroit superbe. Calme et reposant à souhait.

Peace and tranquillity again. The gite, the gardens,fields and trees give us joy. The swimming pool offers welcome relief from the glorious sun. Meeting us with Christine, Gerard, and Zoé, feels like a home coming.

Thank you very much for a wonderful week.

Beautiful simply says it all!

  • 5 of 5

The setting for Le Creche is wonderful. A beautiful renovated farm in fantastic grounds, all kept pristine by Gerard and Christine who are wonderful hosts. The gite is very well equipped, with everything you need plus more. Nice welcome pack of beer, wine, bread, jam and milk, plus tea and coffee. The rooms are very spacious and the photos don't really do it justice. So full of character.

The pool is very nice and the setting so tranquil with views over the valley. A great place to relax after a morning's sightseeing followed by lunch on your private patio by the gite.

Location is great for Issigeac, which must be one of the nicest bastide towns in the region. So full of character and charm. A 30 minute gentle walk from the gite or a 5 minute car ride, plenty of parking. The Sunday market is a must and the "gourmet" evening on Thursdays is great fun. If you plan on eating in town, then La Bruceliere is a must. The food is delicious, fantastically prepared and presented, and very reasonable too. Great staff.

Overall, we would say it's a fantastic gite in a great location, run by two very nice hosts. We would definitely come back here if ever we plan to do the Dordogne region again. Thank you Gerard and Christine.

Wonderful gite in an ideal setting

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the nicest gites we have stayed in. From the moment you arrive and receive such a warm welcome from the owners Gerard and Christine you realise that you have found a small piece of heaven. The gite is very well equipped with your every need catered for. It is spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean with a touch of charm that these older buildings have. There are several outside seating areas for your own exclusive use and, of course, the pool is wonderful with good quality sun beds and a great view down the valley to enjoy. We must not forget Zoe who adds her own 'charm' to this unique gite. We hope to return very soon.

It is situated on the banks of the Dordogne and has a beautiful old town where the winding, cobbled streets climb up from the river to the church and market place at the top of the town. There are numerous bastide villages, chateaux & gardens which are a short drive away. The surrounding area provides many walking/cycling opportunities.
