About Jane Bower
Paul and Jane Bower, the owners, ran a four star Wedding and Function Venue in North Yorkshire, UK, for nine years before deciding that they would like to do something a bit less pressured in a lovely location. So they moved to the Dordogne and decided to run this gite! They have been coming to La Balade au Bois for years and it never failed to fill them with a wonderful feeling of peace and tranquillity- they are sure that it will do the same thing for you.
Jane Bower purchased this barn in 1992
Why Jane Bower chose Nabirat
The marvellous thing about La Balade au Bois with its two wonderful gites, Le Noyer and Le Chataignier, is the sense of peace and relaxation that descends on you the moment you arrive. In addition to this it is located in a small hamlet which allows you to access a little bit of true French community life. Have a walk through to chat to Mme Borde, whose small homestead is in the middle of the hamlet or other residents! Our location is just amazing- Within just 15-20mins by car you can be in some of the most well known tourist sites in the Perigord Noir. There are superb activities for all afe groups including children. Do please look at our website to find out more information on things to do and see w=during your stay in the Dordogne
What makes this barn unique
What we have always loved about the place is the history. When you see the 50cm thick stone walls, the old oak beams, the arrowslit windows you are transported back to another time. The local architect who did the original renovation plans said that he believed the original 16th c house was probably an ecclesaistical building- I really need to investigate this! Perhaps there is a connection to the 100 Years War.
