About Kevin and Claire

We are an English family who have recently bought Au Pré Vert for a new adventure having spent the last 5 years in the mountains of northern Italy. Claire and Kevin are former Physiotherapists who enjoy the great outdoors and travelling. Rory is studying in England, pursuing his dream of being the next Bradley Wiggins. George is studying in Italy, and is a freestyle snowboarder in the Trentino Team, competing in national competitions.

Kevin and Claire purchased this barn in 2015

Why Kevin and Claire chose Saint-Aubin-de-Nabirat

We bought Au Pré Vert because of its location, peaceful and away from it all, but within 30 minutes of the best this beautiful region has to offer, passing through idyllic countryside and beautiful villages along the way.

The cottages are made of the local stone, an attractive, warm honey colour, which reminded us of the Cotswolds.

We were looking for a property that also had everything on site to keep the whole family entertained, with great walks and bike rides from the house.

What makes this barn unique

Big blue skies.

A wealth of activities to suit all ages, all included, and all on site.

Long warm evenings.

Watching the magical evening sunset evolve and then disappear.

Early morning bike rides to the boulangerie to collect the freshly baked croissants and baguettes.

Space to enjoy the best things in life, quality time with family and friends.

Taking a leisurely walk across open farmland and through ancient woodland to a local restaurant, where you can enjoy a set menu, typical French four course lunch, before meandering back home.

Onze beste vakantie tot nu toe!

  • 5 of 5

We hebben bewust gezocht naar een verblijf met zwembad. Maar achteraf blijkt dat alles er toe bijgedragen heeft om een geweldige vakantie te hebben.

De eigenaren Claire en Kevin Domville zijn uitermate vriendelijke mensen die op het verblijf zelf wonen (woning met het torentje). We werden vriendelijk onthaald en onze 3 kinderen kregen een leuk presentje. Tijdens onze vakantieweken was alles goed voor elkaar, maar als we vragen hadden konden Claire en Kevin ons in 9 van de 10 keer helpen.

De huisjes zijn van alle gemakken voorzien (gasoven, vaatwasmachine, magnetron, wasmachine, koelkast, ruime vriezer) en alles functioneert prima. Op aanvraag kun je ventilatoren gebruiken want 's avonds zijn de slaapkamers behoorlijk op temperatuur, ook zijn de kamers redelijk gehorig. De meeste slaapkamers zijn voorzien van horren en dat maakt het slapen wel fijner.

Op het veld (ik schat 1 hectare) is veel te doen: betonnen BBQ met picknicktafel, badmintonnen, Jeu de Boules, zwemmen in een ruim en diep (150CM) zwembad, golf, voetballen. Ook stellen de eigenaren mountainbikes beschikbaar voor volwassenen en kinderen.

In de buurt is ook veel te ondernemen zoals kanoën, kastelen en grotten bezoeken, vissen, wandelen, fietsen enz. De eigenaren kunnen ook goed tips en adviezen geven.

Kortom: niets aan te merken op dit verblijf. De 5 sterren zijn absoluut verdiend. De kans is groot dat we hier vaker naar toe zullen gaan. Echt een aanrader!

Ideally situated in the Perigord Noir region of the Dordogne, yet close to the Lot border. The gites are in a very peaceful area with open views of the surrounding countryside and ancient woodland. There are many local walks from the house, with great cycling routes too, for both mountain bikers and road cyclists. Au Pré Vert is within easy reach of the beautiful medieval towns of Sarlat, Domme and the majestic Rocamadour. This area boasts more officially recognised 'Plus Beaux Villages de France', than any other part of the country. Together these beautiful villages provide a daily market selling typical French produce, both during the day and in the evening. The Dordogne River is minutes away, with canoeing, kayaking, boat trips, and swimming. The enchanting riverside towns of Beynac and La Rocque Gageac are close by. There are many spectacular caves nearby, including taking a gondola ride inside Gouffre de Padirac. The Perigord Noir has a wealth of chateaux and castles, that are open to visitors. Within a short drive, are many beautiful gardens including Marqueyssac and Eyrignac, and for something different, the water gardens of Les Jardins d'Eau. You can take a scenic balloon flight over the area, or if more adrenalin is required, a tandem free fall parachute jump! There are many opportunities for fishing in lakes and rivers. If you don't catch your supper, locally, there are a range of restaurants, from a traditional set French menu (€14 including wine) 2km away, to nouvelle cuisine 3km away in St Martial de Nabirat. For those who enjoy a round (of golf), there is a 4 hole pitch and putt in the grounds, but there are several golf courses, in the area, the closest just 17km away.
