Sarah Hanlon purchased this Barn in 2013
Why Sarah Hanlon chose Bellefont-La Rauze
The property was purchased in France because of the families love of the area. When it's not rented the home is is used by the large extended family.
What makes this Barn unique
The uniqueness of the property is what drew the family to it. It was so not what they were thinking of buying, but with one visit, they knew it was the one for them. The openness of the upstairs and the quality of the design, stands out as soon as you enter it. The location is beautiful for walks and the peace and quiet is just what is needed. A pool was built in 2013, making it a fantastic place for a family holiday.

Absolutely amazing villa in a stunning location
The villa was fabulous, it was authentic and beautiful with a modern twist. With all essentials provided for in every room, from Wi-Fi to sky, from plug adaptors to games and puzzle as well as a fully functioning kitchen, it was a real home from home. Nothing has been missed outside either, with both gas and charcoal barbecues, parasols and seating all around the pool it really is the most glorious of places to relax in, in what can only be described as 5-star comfort.
Nothing was too much for the owners who were always happy to answer any questions and help with directions and recommending the best restaurants and attractions to visit.
I would highly recommend this holiday home villa and look forward to returning in the future.
Many thanks for the wonderful review xXx
Our stay in this beautiful converted barn was everything described on the site and much much more. The surrounding area is just beautiful. The barn itself has everything you could wish for and more. The lower level allows direct access to the pool and garden. The open plan kitchen and living area on the upper level has been cleverly designed, it really does have the wow factor. We just loved sitting out at night listening to the crickets and owls, it was so peaceful. The owners show a genuine interest for their guests, before and whilst on holiday. A few weeks before our holiday we received a detailed information pack, including directions, local information and even recommended dog walks!! In conclusion, we had a fabulous stay and would have no hesitation in recommending this property. The only downside was leaving!!
Many thanks for this wonderful review x
Perfect Downtime Guaranteed!
From the very first contact with owners Sarah and Richard online through to our arrival at "Haute Terre" our experience was warm, genuine and friendly. Every detail has been thoughtfully organised so we knew exactly how to get to the property and find supermarkets, local shops and more. Haute Terre itself is very tastefully and comfortably furnished and so spacious it truly felt for the week we were there, like a "Home away from Home". The Pool was a welcome relief after the fabulous sunshine and hours spent lazing around the pool getting the best tan I've had in years! We made full use of the BBQ and dined outside frequently... It's location is superb and we made two day trips to Cahors and to Saint Circ Lapopie, we could have done so much more but I found it hard to drag myself away from what was the most relaxing/de-stressing holiday ever! I can't wait to come back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone. Thanks again Sarah and Richard for a fabulous summer idyll! Janine, Ant, Ingrid and Belle x
All you need for a wonderful holiday: the house, the pool, the surroundings, everything was just perfect!
We are a family of five spending two weeks at Haute Terres, and we all loved it. There is so much to see
and to do in the region, or just relax at the house. You cannot ask for more! We will love to come back.
A fantastic place for rest and relaxation
This property was all it promised to be and more. I would have no hesitation in recommending it. We travelled as a family of 4 including our two sons (20 &16) needing a real break and we were able to unwind and restore ourselves! We had wall to wall sunshine so the pool area was just perfect for us. We had lots of BBQs with delicious food bought at the market in Cahor. Locals shops are a 15 minute drive away where you can get fresh bread, meat, fruit and vegetables. We canoed, walked, swam, star gazed, visited villages and a chateaux. The owners were very helpful and easy to contact.
Super Unterkunft für einen ruhigen Urlaub!
Wer einen Urlaub abseits des Massentourismus sucht sollte unbedingt in diesem Haus einchecken!
Das Haus ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet, dass man auch bei nicht so tollem Wetter (was sehr selten vorkommt ) sich auch im inneren sehr wohl fühlt, die Außenanlage mit Pool bietet dann den Rest was man zur Entspannung braucht.
Wir haben dort zu sechst einen unserer schönsten Urlaube verbracht!
