About the Location

The barn is within walking distance of the well-known village of Tremolat with no less than 5 restaurants to choose from and a cafe. The Michelin-starred restaurant Le Vieux Logis offers ‘art on a plate’ by chef Vincent is well worth booking, as is the Bistro en Face, which also has a Michelin star. Les Tartines is a wine bar that offers smaller meals, should you wish something lighter. The pizzeria offers delicious pizzas as well as a variety of local dishes. During the summer there is a pop-up restaurant on the edge of the Dordogne River which serves a variety of light meals. The surrounding countryside has plenty of fun activities for all including mini-golf, skiing, canoeing cycling and walking. Fly into Bordeaux, the capital of wine, a 2 hour, 45-minute drive away.

Style Notes

Relaxed, rustic living. The traditional stone barn, built in 1811, has been converted to offer an airy space with comfortable spaces to relax and lovely spaces inside and out to eat and enjoy local food. Large beams stretch upwards and stone walls reveal glimpses of the barn's history. The main living space is graced with a huge chandelier made from an old wagon wheel at its center, and the kitchen is constructed from a variety of different types of wood. We love the relaxed style of the bedrooms, the gardens and the great location.

Dordogne, Southwest France

The green heart of France

The rural farming heart of France is a fantastic destination for a family getaway, amid fields of sunflowers and pretty market towns. The Dordogne river itself is good for canoeing and swimming, and there are castles and chateaux to explore, caves painted with prehistoric images and, this being France, sensational food.
