Chabirac Haute is an old barn hovel that has recently been converted, maintaining lots of the barns old features, but re-modeled to create a comfortable four/five bedroom house with modern facilities, lots of living space, swimming pool and beautiful valley views. A garden surrounds the property with woodlands to the rear and a paddock to the side of the house. Making this a particularly sort after holiday destination.
The owners fell in love with the Dordogne and have been visiting the area for more than twenty years. Presently they live in the UK and use the house for their own holidays. The house bought as a dilapidated barn hovel in 2002, has been lovingly restored to its present day level of comfort.
Brian Wiseman purchased this barn in 2001
Loved the position of the property - location, location, location being the mantra we used when researching our purchase.
We stayed here in Sept last year - didn't book this property from the Owners Direct website but just been looking for another place to stay and found this review. Very surprised at the comments as I found it a great place as it had everything for a large family with grandchildren. Such a peaceful location in a real old French style barn environment. Now getting pressured to arrange another visit by the gang!
This is a lovely property in a beautiful peaceful location that could/should be a fantastic holiday home. The standard of cleanliness of the property though leaves a lot to be desired!. It really needs a good clean. There were very dirty cupboards and floors and the quilts on the beds badly need replacing. We did mail the owner who responded with less than satisfactory excuses.('cleaner has limited amount of time', 'Quilts should have been changed,' 'Tiles loose around pool due to weather', 'Damaged sunbeds will be replaced') We paid quite a premium compared to other French properties that we have visited in the past and have never had reason to complain about standards before. I hope they sort it out but I'm not convinced they will!
