“Incredible views, beautiful barn”
Reviewed 6 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Incredible week of gorgeous weather and waking up to the most beautiful view. The barn was even better than the photographs and was perfectly equipped with everything we needed for our holiday.

Mark and Lindsay were very helpful and friendly, showed us around the property and made us feel right at home helping us enjoy our holiday. They gave us loads of information about the local area and what we could do. Even offered to book us reservations at local restaurants that they had recommended.

I have already recommended a few friends to visit the Barn and I will definitely look to come back in the future.

“Perfect place to relax and from which to explore the Dordogne”
Reviewed 8 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

We spent 2 great weeks in La Vieille Etable together with our dog. The place was everything we had hoped for: quiet location, great views from the decking area, excellent boulangerie within walking distance, plenty of small villages/towns in the area to explore (we particularly like Jumilhac, St Jean de Côle and Brantôme), lots of options for walks nearby and, last but not least, its own lake to cool off in. Our dog also had a great time, as she could run freely in the garden and with the lake nearby we never had to worry about overheating. The house is very well equipped, we couldn’t really think of anything that could be added to the kitchen inventory! We highly recommend this house to those looking to enjoy all that the region has to offer in a luxurious setting.

“A blissful French holiday!”

I have to start with the beautiful setting of this wonderful home! The view you wake up to every day is gorgeous and the whole 'feel' of the place totally chilled us out within a very short time of being there. The property is extremely well equipped and everything is thought of by the owners. The rooms are very comfortable and the luxury Hot tub was fabulous and easy to operate, we used it most evenings in fact!
La Coquille is a local town only about 2 miles away and there we found a couple of Bars, Restaurants, Bakery's and a small supermarket so we could stock up on those holiday essentials!
All in all we had the most Blissful time and wouldn't hesitate to recommend booking La Vieille Etable! We'll definitely be going back!!

Beautifully well equipped house with everything you need. The swimming lake is great and to then be able to soak in the hot tub afterwards was lovely. Great views from the rear decking and it's very private and quiet too, would recommend.

“Perfect Holiday”
Reviewed 29 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Absolutely lovely week at La Vielle Etable gite. Perfect location in a quiet village but ideally situated to explore around the area. Mark and Lindsay were fabulous and very helpful even booking our appointment with the local vet for us. The gite was well equipped and spacious, we had 5 members of family and there was plenty of room for us. The hot tub was the great favourite for my daughter! We all used the lake for swimming, including our dog and the grounds were a great space for him to explore. All in all a great holiday and we would definately go again.

Dear Andrea,

Thank you for your wonderful review. It was a pleasure to meet you all, and we're so glad you had a great holiday, especially your lovely dog Murphy. You mentioned to us in passing that it would be great if there was a bar or restaurant in the village. I'm delighted to say that a local gent has bought the village bar and is planning to open for business around March-May 2017, so we're looking forward to having a local watering hole within easy walking distance. Thanks again for your booking and we hope to welcome you back in the future.

All the Best,

Mark & Lindsay
