About Vincent and Maria Lynott
We have lived in the Dordogne for 9 years, but have nearly 30 years knowledge of the area. We're happy to answer any questions you may have and can advise on all the best spots to visit.
Vincent and Maria Lynott purchased this Barn in 2005
Why Vincent and Maria Lynott chose Saint-Cybranet
Before we bought this property it had belonged to friends of ours - so we knew the house for about 20 years before we moved in. We fell in love with it when we first saw it, just as we did with the Dordogne area.
What makes this Barn unique
Outstanding uninterupted views. Tranquil location yet only a short drive to some of the most beautiful villages and sites in the Dordogne.

Peace and quiet at Tree tops.
A perfect place to enjoy a peaceful break either by the pool during the day or enjoying a meal with glass of wine, or two, listening to the owls from the balcony on a warm summer evening.
Maria and Vincent are the perfect hosts providing a good welcome pack to start you off.
Plenty to see and do in the local area in Sarlat and Domme or relaxing on the river viewing the castles and Kingfishers.
Beuatiful stay in treetops that was even nicer than the pictures.Room had everything and a view that was outstanding. We generally eat out when on holiday but sitting on the balcony on a warm evening haveing your meal was so peacful and relaxing we actually cooked and ate in just as much
Vjncent and Maria are lovely and will help with anything you need but also respect your privacy as you want it .The pool has been set up so both Barn rooms have there own private area with bushes and lavender as barriers which is a nice touch and it does make it feel you are on yiur own .We had lovely weather and i would reccomend the area as there is so much to see and would definetly recommend tree tops as a place to stay
Andy and Diane
We emailed our lovely guests Andy and Diane to thank them for doing such a delightful review and to ask how we could improve on the 4 stars which they awarded.
Andy replied saying 'I am sorry, I thought I had given you 5 stars, it was a mistake doing it so early in the morning. I hope my words portrayed this and if I can I will change it. I do apologise.'
Thank you for your reply Andy. It is greatfully appreciated.
Maria and Vincent
Never felt so relaxed.
This has been the most relaxing holiday we have ever had, the property and view make you want to do nothing. The pool area is amazing and Maria and Vincent will do anything to make your stay memorable, including recommending and booking tables for you at local restaurants. All the main attractions are on your doorstep. Would recommend this property to anyone who wants to relax.
Beautiful and totally relaxing
Vince and Maria were wonderful hosts and their luxury gite was amazing and a welcome surprise. They both made us feel at home, and were there when we needed advice and left us to enjoy the surroundings with the fabulous pool. The area is exceptional with so many places of interest to visit. The views from the balcony were brilliant, with hot air balloons passing overhead which were beautiful and made for a great area to chill and enjoy a glass of wine or a beer... one week wasn't enough so we will be back. The garden was very relaxing with hammocks for chilling, table tennis and a badminton net, great for anyone with kids. We would highly recommend - you won't be disappointed...
I believe our stay at Tree Tops exceeded our expectations. Tree Tops is a very comfortable and relaxing home from home. It is extremely well kitted out and tastefully decorated. Whilst located in a beautiful spot where you can enjoy the peaceful scenery from your own balcony it is also great base from where you can explore the Dordogne.
A big thank you to Vincent and Maria who are the perfect hosts and their warm welcome as well as their recommendations on local restaurants and wines were much appreciated.
A little piece of paradise
What a beautiful place it really is a little piece of paradise. It was recommended to us by close friends and it exceeded our expectations. We were greeted by vincent and Maria who are the most lovable people you could meet. Our Gite was gorgeous and immaculate and Maria bless her had made us a lasagne as we were arriving late and it was our honeymoon and it was the best lasagne i have ever had. Nothing was to much trouble and it was a pleasure to meet such lovely people. We cant wait to go back as it has everything from the peace and tranquility and loved chatting to Vincent and Maria. I cant thank them enough for sharing there beautiful Gite with us and we truely can not wait to book up for next year. Thank you again for making our Honeymoon love Mr & Mrs Ranger
