“Just Perfect” Just returned from a superb weeks stay at the barn. Everything was there that you could need. It's well equipped, comfortable and with easy reach of shops, restaurants and petrol stations. We made good use of the bbq provided, the weather was great and we ate outside most nights. Day trips were made to Dinan, St Malo and Cancale where the oysters and mussels are to die for. The week flew in and we were sorry to be going home.
Would we return?????.....you bet :-)
“Great converted barn in the heart of the French countryside” A sympathetically converted well proportioned barn in the heart of the Dordogne, the perfect destination for friends or a family group that want to get away from it all and enjoy everything the French countryside has to offer.
The barn is beautifully furnished and is obviously a much cared for family home. It has all the mod cons and plenty of extras to keep friends or family entertained, even down to a garage full of mountain bikes.
We were warmly welcomed and the operation of everything we might need listed in some detail. A great vegetable and fruit garden was in full production and we were told to help ourselves. We had great fun picking our own food and preparing it in the lovely kitchen and then enjoying it at one on the many tables outside the property, placed to make the best of sun all day round.
All in all this was the perfect holiday and we would recommend it to anyone. A big thank you to our hosts Jeanette and Neil.
“A wonderful gite in a peaceful location” As with the other reviewers I have no hesitation in giving this gite 6/6. It must be the best equipped gite we have ever stayed in and Brian and Hilary are great hosts, their main concern simply being that you have a great holiday, which we did.
“The most relaxing and peaceful holiday we've ever had.” A lovely barn, homely furnished and well equipped situated in a peaceful village close to Brantome.
We have stayed at the "Barn" three few times now and have booked to go again on June. Part of the barn houses the bikes, tandem and canoes (which we used on the river) and the cycling there is wonderful, lots of quiet lanes. Brantome is a super town with a fantastic market where you can buy local produce and fresh fish. The narrow streets and abbey has a lot to offer including an Aldi where we buy our wine.
The location is very quiet with several acres of ground giving very peaceful surroundings -sitting outside with a drink in the evening watching the sun go down listening to the cicadas is a perfect end to the day. Definitely hooked now and we've always had good weather!
“A french gem in a beautiful quiet village” We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful gite, it had everything that you could wish for in a holiday let and catered for all of our family including a young child.
It was so well equipped, spotlessly clean and decorated with a rustic french charm.
I would highly recommend this accommodation and of all the places I have stayed I think this is definitely the best.
Crazannes the village is quiet but charming and a great base for visiting the surrounding area such as Cognac, La Rochelle and Royan.
