Located in a good spot in between Lablanchere and Joyeuese, it was nice to have a few provisions like tea bags, soaps, washing powder etc and the bottle of wine was appreciated! As there is an upstairs and downstairs gite, it's also ideal for 2 families holidaying together.

It even has its own private outdoor area so we were never on top of each other. The Barn was very clean and well furnished, with a small kitchen, great for making meals, breakfast etc. With a very sunny terrace immediately outside with a retractable sun canopy for alfresco eating. Alan and Jane were very welcoming and helpful going the extra mile literally when we could not get tickets to visit the Chavet Caves by organising the tickets for us. Will be back as this is a lovely part of the world with lots to see and do and not too busy.
