About Danielle and Gilles

Hello to everybody. We are Gilles and Danielle, parents of 2 offsprings and grandparents of two babies. We have spent unforgettable moment in this family, convivial, and warm house.

Danielle and Gilles purchased this villa in 1998

Why Danielle and Gilles chose Layrac

We fall in love with this sunny region. This house is spacious and delightful. Life is much more gently in Paris, where we lived before.

What makes this villa unique

There is a lot of space, many activities both in the house and nearby (pool, a tennis court, a billiard table). It is close to a large city (Agen is 15 min away).

Un petit monde à part

  • 5 of 5

Un terrain de tennis, une piscine chauffée, un gîte superbe plein de caractère, une cheminée extérieure pour des soirées et BBQ conviviaux, un jardin superbe agréable et très bien entretenu, des arbres matures à l’ombre desquels il fait bon faire la sieste, Barrouilh nous a offert tous ce dont nous avions besoin pour passer un fabuleux week-end...Bravo a Gilles et Daniel pour leur accueil

Lovely grounds and exterior, interior decoration let property down.

  • 2 of 5

The property was situated in a lovely area with beautiful views. There were many wonderful outside spaces. Unfortunately the property was let down by the terrible basic decoration, very dated bathroom and shower room and tiny kitchen. The downstairs toilet had a stick as a toilet roll holder! The property was not very clean throughout and the oven and baking tray was dirty. The pool although initially lovely became dirty and remained dirty throughout our stay as the cleaner didn't work. We had looked forward to having a BBQ in the lovely outside area, but unfortunately that was unusable due to being so dirty.

Overall I think that for the very high price paid for the rental of this house the standard was unacceptable. The kitchen was by far too small to cater for 12 people, which is how many the house is advertised as sleeping and the lounge only had seating for seven at a push. The upstairs decoration was to a very low standard as was the bathroom. After staying in other rental properties I would not recommend staying at this one.

Owner's Response: C'est à se demander si vous avez séjourné dans la même propriété que tous nos précédents vacanciers tous charmés par Barrouilh. C'est une maison de campagne avec tout le charme que cela comporte. Osez dire que la maison n'était pas propre est inacceptable. Nous y apportons un grand soin mais face à de la mauvaise foi, que pouvons nous faire. Ne pouviez vous faire part lors de nos différentes entrevues de certains points qui n'étaient pas visiblement à la hauteur de vos exigences. Vous oubliez également de mentionner le niveau d'équipement de la maison. En revanche, vous vous focalisez sur un support de papier toilette ! Désolés que la décoration ne soit pas à votre goût, mais avant de réserver, vous pouviez grâce aux photos présentes sur le site vous en apercevoir. Quant à la piscine, le caractère très orageux du mois d'août a posé des problèmes, en l'occurence l'eau qui verdissait suite à la formation d'algues ce qui n'est pas de la saleté. Vous oubliez de préciser que Lionel est intervenu immédiatement pour adapter les traitements. De même, vous n'étiez pas là dans les horaires prévus de remise des clés, nous vous avons attendu tard dans la soirée et avec le sourire. Vous n'avez pas suivi les directives qui vous avez été transmises pour rejoindre la propriété, nous sommes aller vous récupérer dans la campagne, toujours avec le sourire. Et pour finir, vous avez fixé le RV avec Lionel pour rendre les clés à 8 h au lieu de 10 h. A 7h45, quand Lionel est arrivé, vous aviez quitté la propriété en laissant le réfrigérateur non vidé, les lumières allumées... Quelle manque de correction ! Barrouilh avec sa grande piscine chauffée, son tennis privé, ses 2 hectares de terrain, son billard est dans un excellent rapport qualité prix.

Very beautiful setting, great pool & tennis court. Very good outdoor sitting area.

  • 4 of 5

This is a really beautiful old rural domaine in a gorgeous setting, great view over the valley, wonderful outdoor terraces, both open and uncovered. Functional outdoor kitchen with plenty of wood for fire-cooking. Nice big pool, high quality tennis court. Very friendly family that runs home. Cute village - Astaffort - a 5 minute drive for morning croissants, markets, etc. and Agen a bit further but still close for anything else. Would very happily spend another week there...

Het huis is geen huis maar een landgoed op 2 hecataren eigen grond. Meerdere terrassen overdekt en niet overdekt zijn allemaal ruim en kijken in het groen. De buiten openhaard is fantastisch.

Het zwembad, tennisbaan en de biljartkamer maken het compleet.

Het huis met alle toebehoren is zo aantrekkelijk, dat het lastig is om er op uit te gaan. Een echte aanrader!
