Property description

A Traditional 'Quercynoise' Stone Barn has been renovated and modernised to form this little ensemble of four self contained holiday cottages.

The individual gites offer different accommodation ranging from 2-5* persons and each has a fully equipped kitchen, with oven and hob (electric) microwave, dishwasher fridge and coffee maker. They have a small private shaded outside area with a charcoal barbeque and furniture for dining 'al fresco'.

The accommodation is in Beautiful Extensive Private Grounds, there is plenty of space for children to run and play. The property is traffic free but not remote. It is set on a hill with stunning views across the surrounding countryside and towards the village of Salviac, just 2 kilometres away. The village has small shops, bakery, butchery, post office and bars. There are two restaurants in the Village.

The cottages share a lovely pool (fenced and alarmed) with decking, sun terrace and loungers. There is an area for football, badminton, and volleyball and we provide table tennis, boules and other outdoor play equipment for the enjoyment of our guests. There is also a play area for smaller children. In all, a perfect family holiday.

The covered communal barbeque area overlooks the pool and is perfect for relaxed, sociable evenings in the setting sun.

Although our changeover day during high season is Saturday, during Low and Mid season our changeover day is flexible, so short stays of less than a week are possible, as are 10, 11 or 12 day stays. Please enquire by e mail.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Teresa and Steve Magill 'retired' to France in 2005. When we bought the property, the Stone Barn had already been converted into 4 Gites. We spent our first winter redecorating, refurbishing, repainting and re furnishing and generally bringing them up to date. We live here full time with our two sons, a pony and our two lovely friendly dogs, Frank and Betty (!) and two cats. We are both Londoners, real townies, and after 10 years, we still have to stop and listen to the silence. Of course, we miss 'civilisation' but after two or three days in London, we long to get away from the traffic, the noise, the hustle and bustle and the grime and back to our clean air, our traffic free roads (no traffic lights for 20 kilometres) and our peace and quiet. Running the gites was an eye-opener , although I am a qualified chef, we had no experience of this sort of enterprise and the business came ready made so we really hit the ground running. It took us a year or two to get into the swing of dealing with all that was involved, but I think we have got the hang of it now and we have several clients who come back time and time again so we must be doing something right. We have met (and made friends with) a great many people from all over the world and this has been a hugely enriching experience.

Why the Owner Chose Le Pech Gaillard:
We had holidayed in Rural France on several occasions, and were really taken with this area. Its green and undulating and fresh and peaceful and clean....... I could go on and on. When we made the decision to move to France, we probably looked at 30 properties. This old stone farmhouse seemed to fit the bill perfectly and although we did a lot of work to upgrade the gites and then more work on the house, it now works for the whole family and we feel it was worth it. We are close to a village with an all year community, which was very important to us, as our boys both went to school in Salviac and the locals have made us very welcome. The area is not densely populated but at the same time, we are not completely cut off. The shops still close for lunch for two hours, which takes some getting used to but, hey, we now embrace this very french tradition and do you know what? We think they have got it about right!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Even in the winter, when the trees are covered in frost, we can wrap ourselves in fleeces and sit outside in the morning with our coffee and crosissants and take in the breathtaking view from our terrace. We may not be earning city salaries, but this is priceless.
