About Mark & Lindsay

Welcome to La Vieille Etable, our holiday home since 2014 and our full-time home since 2016 We are both Armed Forces veterans having a combined 30 year’s service in the RAF between us. Both qualified military air traffic controllers, our eyes met over the radar screen in in 2010 and we married in December 2014.

Following our retirement from the RAF, Lindsay took a ‘normal’ job, and Mark turned his hand to property development, but as every visit to Dordogne came to an end, we would both spend much of the journey back to the UK moaning that we didn’t want to leave. On the drive back in September 2015, Mark finally threatened to get his calculator out. The calculator led to extensive spreadsheets and due diligence. Just over 6 months later, we made France our forever home. NEW for 2017 - 25 square meter Hot Tub Deck with Luxury Outdoor Multi-jet Thermostat Shower. ALSO - a bar and restaurant has just opened in the village.

Mark & Lindsay purchased this barn in 2014

Why Mark & Lindsay chose Saint-Priest-les-Fougères

The reason we bought a holiday home in the first place was due to our own holiday experiences. We became fed up saving hard and paying a sizeable sum for a holiday only to find that life was far less comfortable than in our own home. We were fed up with ‘double’ beds that turned out to be Austrian twins. We were frustrated when we started wishing that the holiday was over due to waking up with terrible back aches. We could only laugh when arriving at a property that ‘had a TV’ only to find that the owner had not seen fit to provide an aerial or a plug.

What makes this barn unique

We have set up our holiday home with all of our own irritations in mind, to try and ensure that you have the kind of holiday that we always wanted. And as air traffic controllers and proud veterans, we are pleased to offer discounted rates to all GATCO members and Armed Forces personnel, both current and veterans respectively.

We hope to hear from you soon,

Mark & Lindsay

Stunning views, pristine house

  • 5 of 5

Incredible week of gorgeous weather and waking up to the most beautiful view. The barn was even better than the photographs and was perfectly equipped with everything we needed for our holiday.

Mark and Lindsay were very helpful and friendly, showed us around the property and made us feel right at home helping us enjoy our holiday. They gave us loads of information about the local area and what we could do. Even offered to book us reservations at local restaurants that they had recommended.

I have already recommended a few friends to visit the Barn and I will definitely look to come back in the future.

Fabulous converted barn in an idyllic setting.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous 2 weeks with our dog in La Vieille Etable. It was everything we had hoped it to be: luxurious, set in a quiet village, excellent views over the countryside and, to top it all off, it had its own lake! Perfect for cooling off on hot sunny days (for both us and the dog!).

The house is very well equipped and maintained, so much so that we couldn't think of much else to add to the list of suggested improvements/additions. Lindsay and Mark have pretty much thought of everything and provided a great information package for the house prior to our arrival; including very useful and detailed directions on how/where to find the house on reaching the village.

The location was perfect too; off the main throroughfare of the region, but local highlights were still easily accessible.

All in all a fantastic property which we would thoroughly recommend as a base for a relaxing holiday in the Dordogne.

Wonderful French holiday!!

  • 5 of 5

I have to start with the beautiful setting of this wonderful home! The view you wake up to every day is idyllic and the whole 'feel' of the place totally chilled us out within a very short time of being there. The property is extremely well equipped and everything is thought of by the owners. The rooms are very comfortable and the luxury Hot tub was fabulous and easy to operate, we used it most evenings in fact!

La Coquille is a local town only 2 miles away and there we found a couple of Bars, Restaurants, Bakery's and a small supermarket so we could stock up on those holiday essentials!

All in all we had the most Blissful time and wouldn't hesitate to recommend booking La Vieille Etable! We'll definitely be going back!!

Fantastic property in quiet rural french village

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully well equipped house with everything you need. The swimming lake is great and to then be able to soak in the hot tub afterwards was lovely. Great views from the rear decking and it's very private and quiet too, would recommend.
