Your cooking holiday is based in our magnificent recently converted stone barn set in the beautiful rolling countryside of the Dordogne, between the ancient honey-coloured market towns of Sarlat and Montignac.


The area is very peaceful, offering a relaxing safe environment in which to spend your holiday.

En-suite bedrooms...

The barn is centrally-heated and you will have your own spacious double en-suite bedroom with independent access to the sunny courtyard.

All bedrooms are on the ground floor and so remain at a comfortable temperature during the hotter months.

Great showers...

The rooms are clean and well-equipped with American standard plumbing (modern WC's, sinks and large powerful thermostatically-controlled showers, etc).

Each room has its own tea and coffee making facilities.

Privacy and seclusion...

The barn is set well back from the lane that passes us, and is surrounded by extensive lawned and wooded grounds.

There is a private and secluded 10m x 5m in-ground pool for your exclusive use.

The kitchen...

Keen cooks amongst you can revel in the stunning light and airy kitchen with its split-level floor and exposed oak roof trusses.

There are contemporary semi-professional stainless steel gas cookers and hobs, stainless steel sinks and modern units and work tops.

The kitchen, by IKEA, is spacious with well planned demonstration and hands-on preparation areas.

On the lower half of the split-level is the superb vaulted lounge with unparalleled views of the surrounding countryside.

There is a HiFi, wide-screen television with English Sky satellite channels and comfortable modern furniture.
