I truly can't say enough about how clean and comfortable this adorable little place was. When we stepped inside the first time I thought it was actually nicer than it appeared in the photos. Cozy, just so cozy! The barn was immaculate and well furnished with everything we needed. We especially enjoyed breakfast and dinner on the patio looking out over the beautiful gardens! The converted barn definitely met and exceeded all of our expectations. John and Carolyn were amazing hosts, going out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and having a good holiday. They were full of information about the area, there in a flash when we had a problem with the door lock (repaired in a flash as well) and respectful of our privacy in every way. They genuinely cared about our stay in every way. St Jean de Cole was delightful and we ate at La Perla many times. The historical tour given from the Tourist Information office was excellent, even in the rain with umbrellas! We recommend near-by Brantome for restaurants as well, especially Côte Rivière. Our meals there were hands down the best of our entire 2 weeks in France! Be sure to tour the Abbey and ask about the bell tower tour in the Tourist Information office in Brantome. It's quite informative and interesting. Brantome is lovely just for a stroll through the market (it's been in the same spot on Friday's since the 1500's - read the plaque about it near the bridge) or visiting the Abbey and we found ourselves there many times. There is plenty to do in the area around St. Jean de Cole yet it's quiet and relaxing with the surrounding fields and forests. And I promise you won't be disappointed staying in the Converted Barn!

There was lots of room for our family of four though with its two ensuite bathrooms (and additional downstairs loo), we could easily see this cottage being used by two couples as well. The cottage has been well renovated and still has lots of character. The barns were also good for safely storing our bikes though the setting is so quiet that there were no worries of security. Cussac the closest village has a good and well stocked supermarket and there is a patisserie and boulangerie too as well as a couple of restaurants. There are a good number of lakes 25-35 mins drive from the cottage that have sandy beach/bathing areas (lifeguard attended), and boating activities. We liked St Estephe which had a nice walk and Espace Hermline which had a Velo-Rail and tree top adventure park (GoApe). The Limousine is a fantastic area of rolling hills, woodland small farms, hamlets and pretty villages/small towns and the cottage is also very close to the edge of the Dordogne making visits to this area's attractions all very easy (Brantome and canoeing down the river is a must). There are lots of frequent local activities and we enjoyed a large fair at nearby Oradour Sur Vayres and a night market at the pretty town of Rochechouart (location of a meteorite impact 200 million years ago causing a crater 20km wide and 6km deep). Another must see/do is the Oradour Sur Glane WW2 village that was frozen in time after the Waffen SS Panzer division massacred 642 inhabitants on 10-June 1944 - a real living history lesson. After a good days activity it was nice to return to the comfortable cottage to relax and recover.
