About Brian Wiseman
The owners fell in love with the Dordogne and have been visiting the area for more than twenty years. Presently they live in the UK and use the house for their own holidays. The house bought as a dilapidated barn hovel in 2002, has been lovingly restored to its present day level of comfort.

A wonderful property - perfect for a family holiday
We loved our time in this property. We stayed for a week but should have made it two! Inside it was huge and perfectly decorated with great facilities. Outside the views were sensational and of course the pool was a massive hit!! We thoroughly recommend it, our whole party loved it and we wouldn't hesitate to go back!
Thank you for your kind words it’s great to have the appreciation of your family.
Real "French" Experience
We stayed here in Sept last year - didn't book this property from the Owners Direct website but just been looking for another place to stay and found this review. Very surprised at the comments as I found it a great place as it had everything for a large family with grandchildren. Such a peaceful location in a real old French style barn environment. Now getting pressured to arrange another visit by the gang!
Converted Barn with Pool and Lovely Views
This is a lovely property in a beautiful peaceful location that could/should be a fantastic holiday home. The standard of cleanliness of the property though leaves a lot to be desired!. It really needs a good clean. There were very dirty cupboards and floors and the quilts on the beds badly need replacing. We did mail the owner who responded with less than satisfactory excuses.('cleaner has limited amount of time', 'Quilts should have been changed,' 'Tiles loose around pool due to weather', 'Damaged sunbeds will be replaced') We paid quite a premium compared to other French properties that we have visited in the past and have never had reason to complain about standards before. I hope they sort it out but I'm not convinced they will!
Nous avons passez 6 jours agréable le coin est tranquille nous n’entendions même pas le bruit des voitures, une grande tranquillité !
La maison est très grande et magnifique ! Tout le confort y était il ne manquait rien même en équipements ! Et le plus cette grande piscine ! Je recommande fortement cette location !
Its great to hear comments like this - thankyou
Wouaouh ! !
Maison incroyable et environnement au top ! Manque un peu de ménage (poussière, toile d'araignée pourtant accessible, placards et tiroirs un peu sales ...). Nous avons passé 15 jours formidables !
Thank you for your observations dust and cobwebs are a massive problem in an old stone house you can clean and a day or two later they are back, However i am pleased you enjoyed your holiday and hope you return another time.
