“Heaven!”
Reviewed 4 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We spent 2 weeks in The Haybarn 2 years ago; we were so delighted with it that we booked another 2 weeks this year, and we hope to return again in 2 years. This place is heaven! The location is both quiet and scenic, being right across from the Roque St Christophe (this year, with a pair of nesting peregrine falcons and their 4 young), and there is a good restaurant/bar and a boulangerie within easy walking distance. Many great archeological locations are nearby too: Rouffignac cave, Lascaux, the Font de Gaume, Castel Merle, Les-Eyzies with its museum, etc. And Paul and Philippa are most delightful hosts. We could not want for more!

“Beautiful Gite, Beautiful Location!”
Reviewed 8 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Paul and Philippa are just simply wonderful people: we had a slight mishap whilst staying at the Haybarn and they went massively out of their way to help us and really couldn't have done more. The Gite itself is lovely and location stunning. We loved our stay there and will hopefully be back.

“Delightful cottage”
Reviewed 21 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed at the Hay Barn for 2 weeks and had a most relaxing time in delightful, cosy surroundings. As the weather was very mixed, it was great to have heating if necessary and yet a lovely swimming pool available when the sun came out with a vengeance! The views across to the Roque Saint Christophe are sensational and quite amazing at night, when the rock is illuminated most beautifully. There are just far too many wonderful places to visit in 2 weeks, but the owners, Paul and Philippa Ward are on hand to give valuable advice, if asked. They were a mine of information, but extremely discreet and never invaded one's privacy. We took our Flatcoated Retriever, so a few places were "out of bounds", but the private, secluded terrace of the Hay Barn was a huge asset, leading onto a field and good walks all around. An excellent Vet too in nearby Montignac, Dr.Herve Frigard, who speaks a little English and is very good with dogs! We enjoyed our visit so much that we have already booked again for next June!

“Holiday dreams can come true”
Reviewed 18 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We had dreamed of a quiet Gite, sun glinting off a pool, surrounded by historic villages, lazy rivers and pastoral French scenes .We were taking our Golden Retriever on her first trip abroad so needed space and dog friendly owners , and we hoped to meet some nice folk along the way .
We stayed at the Haybarn in early September. The accommodation is a lovely converted farm outbuilding within the grounds of Le Manoir des Granges ,a delightful old manor farm set amongst open fields and fruit trees. Owners Philippa and Paul ,were everything good hosts aspire to be . Their thoughtful approach to each of their guests has to be experienced to be fully appreciated , for they have time for everyone and know just when to offer advice , conversation or privacy ,that only comes with experience. As an old saying goes, we arrived as strangers but left as friends.
Our stay was very comfortable , the Haybarn’s bed has set new standards for holiday comfort, and the Gite has everything we could have wanted and more. The pool is kept spotless and we could mix with the other guests as we chose around the barbeque and pergola .
There are beautiful walks from the Gite , up into wooded hills, down along the banks of the river Vezere or into the hamlet of Peyzac Le Moustier for the morning collection of Baguette or Croissant .
Every day we found a new restaurant to try, another Chateau to visit or a walk to explore ,all within a very short drive from our Gite. The Haybarn offered such a warm welcome that we ventured out early to try and get back to spend more time sitting in the gardens, soaking up the afternoon sun and chatting with the other guests . By the end of our week we were loath to leave and have pledged to return for a longer stay next time.
From reading this you would be forgiven to think we are related to Philippa and Paul , but read all the other reviews and you will come to the same conclusion, they add all of their lucky guests to their growing family of admirers and they collect the praise well deserved after giving us all the holidays we have dreamed of.

“Wonderful welcome, beautiful location, super gite”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed in the Haybarn for five nights in April 2014 whilst house hunting in the area. The gite was comfortable, very clean, well appointed and delightfully situated. Our hosts were welcoming and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The setting - within sight of the Roque St Christophe and the Rivere Vezere - is impressive, the surrounding area peaceful and beautiful. Montignac is close by and a lovely town and there are numerous pretty villages and good restaurants in the vicinity. Sarlat, Domme and Beynac are an easy drive and worth visiting. All in all I would definitely return to the gite - though we liked the area so much we are buying a house near Montignac ourselves!

“One Great Gite!”
Reviewed 5 January 2014 for a stay in September 2013

Paul and Philippa were welcoming, knowledgable, accommodating and helpful. They helped us to be well set to start before we even arrived in several ways, including booking a reservation at the closest restaurant for our first delicious meal. (Then they also assisted us by booking a hotel and suggesting more good restaurants for our next destination.) Their suggestions for meals in nearby restaurants were appreciated as they were all accurate and well enjoyed. The gite was spacious, comfortable and nicely decorated. Everything we needed was provided. The location was close to all of the medieaval castles, rivers and other sites we were interested in. Within 800 metres of our gite was a series of caves dating back 55 thousand years. These caves could be seen from the gite. We feel our stay was even better than anticipated in every way!!
