It is a wonderful place to be. The countryside is splendid. The gite itself is modern, very comfortable, and exceptionally clean, with every imaginable convenience provided. I can't think of a more attractive swimming pool; just to sit around the swimming pool, admire the magnificent scenery, barbecue food, and enjoy a glass of wine--this is France at its best. Clare and Duane, the owners, are exceptionally hospitable. They are very friendly but also deeply respectful of the needs and desires of their guests. I have stayed in many gites in different parts of France, but this gite excels the others in all aspects. I can't wait to return!
We had a fantastic holiday in top class accommodation and pool. The atmosphere and ambience of the surrounding was beyond words. We visited local towns and villages for shopping and to see the sites. One evening we ventured to a night market which was an amazing experience and we felt embraced in the French night life, We ate out in the nearby village and enjoyed some lovely french cuisine.
The owners including their two charming children made us so welcome! Our welcome started on the night we arrived with a delicious meal waiting for us and some treats in our cupboards and fridge which kept us going until our trip to the local supermarket the following day.Nothing was too much trouble for them and they made our stay in Barbaste perfect.
Barn was beautifully renovated with attention to detail. It was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. Views from the living area just stunning. A very relaxing place to be. Thoughtful and delicious welcome hamper too. Nothing was too much trouble for Clare and Duane We loved it!
