"Fantastic Accommodation and area"

We stayed here for 2 weeks and had a fantastic holiday. The barn was huge and very clean! We were all very impressed with the decor and the standard of the furniture. We would definitely recommend this property.

"Out in the country, not far to travel to idyllic and picturesque places."

Visit local markets and places such as Gourdon, Masclat, Domme, Souillac in this beautiful region of France. Taste the fabulous local cuisine in local restaurants and cafes. Enjoy the countryside and parks by walking, fishing or water-sport activities. Peaceful location for getting away from it all providing an enjoyable stay.
