We are retired and live in Southern England in the New Forest and have lived there for over 20 years. We both have a sporting background having both played racket games at county level. We are both engaged in local voluntary work. Geoff is a current Rotarian of the New Forest Club and is a past magistrate and local councillor. Bridget is the subscription secretary of the Friends of the local Church, and does Church flowers when required and helps at the village Over 70's Club as a driver. We own two rescued cats, named George and Mildred, and have in the past had a dog even though our french house is not suitable for pets. The barn is privately owned by us and was bought from the local farmer 20 years ago. It was renovated using modern methods and old materials where possible.
Geoffrey Gook purchased this barn in 1980
We love the area and saw the potential for the development of the barns. Local English friends helped us buy them from the local farmer. It is situated in a quiet but easily accessible location on the edge of the village. We are involved in the local village activities with our neighbours. We enjoy the relaxed life and beautiful scenery.
Quiet peaceful location but still in touch with the village. Eating out on each of the two covered balconies is a delight. On the larger covered balcony the view across the valley to the hill top town of Belves is lovely to enjoy an evening meal. The private heated swimming pool is easily monitored from the balcony which faces the village.

We had such a lovely holiday. Thank you for making it such a comfortable and welcoming house. A.F. Leigh-on-Sea.
We had a very pleasant two weeks in the Dordogne. The arrangements with the owners were very easy and could not have been more helpful. The area is beautiful and a great location for touring around this part of France. We would certainly recommend it. The property has been beautifully done and the pool was great as it was very hot.
