About Dave and Kathy Edwards
Hi, we are Kathy and Dave Edwards. We moved to south west France in 2016 having bought an old house in the Parc Naturel Limousin Perigord, on the border of Haute Vienne/Dordogne. It came with acres of woodland and two separate cottages with adjoining barns. So, we decided that we would renovate one of the cottages and its barn and turn them into a Gite which other people could rent and enjoy for a week or more to experience the relaxed lifestyle of rural France in our peaceful corner of this lovely country. We have done all the building work inside ourselves, it has been quite a challenge but the reward of seeing the beautiful property it has become are immense. The renovation is sympathetic and to a high standard. Our time here has been quite a journey for us, faced with a new country, a new language, a different pace of life, not to mention getting used to driving on the right side of the road. We are blessed in that we have lovely neighbours who have helped us and we have made some wonderful friends. We look forward to welcoming you to our gite very soon.
Dave and Kathy Edwards purchased this Barn in 2016
What makes this Barn unique
Mushrooms galore! Book for October and discover an abundance of interesting species of mushrooms incuding bolete, hedgehog, girole and many many others. Enjoy walks in the woods at Les Montades, the chestnuts are dropping, sunlight is sparkling through the woodland mix, oak, chestnut, hazel, silver birch and more. Glorious!

The Les Montades gite is a real gem. Beautifully decorated and furnished with great facilities.
We stayed for a week with our two daughters and some friends, and had a fantastic time.
The pool provided the ideal place to cool off after a hot day sightseeing in the area and the hot-tub was great for evening relaxation.
We all enjoyed the badminton and table tennis.
What was particularly impressive was the attention to detail - e.g. the comprehensive folders of local information (including extra copies of information leaflets to take out and about).
The owners, Kathy and Dave were so friendly and helpful. I had to see a doctor during our stay and they couldn't have been more supportive, even offering to accompany me if I'd needed it.
Wow, such a lovely gite and lovely people! Very modern & great facilities, the children had a beautiful time and adults well rested. Very peaceful setting. Days trips out & snoozing by the pool :)
Would highly recommend and would definitely visit again. 5**
Five star Accommodation very clean
Hi would like to thank Kathy and Dave for a brilliant stay , the house was lovely & equipped with everything we needed and more.
It is in a beautiful setting which is very peaceful even though there's lots of villages and places to visit within half an hour drive away
Kathy & Dave could not have been more helpful. We hopefully will be retuning next year

Idéal pour des vacances reposantes
Nous avons passé une très agréable semaine à Marval chez Kathy et Dave avec nos 3 enfants (14, 12 et 9 ans). La maison est très, très bien équipée et très propre. Il y a tout ce qu'il faut pour s'y amuser et s'y reposer. Nous avons également pu faire des ballades et des visites aux alentours.
Idéal pour passer des vacances au calme.
Verdure et calme
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour entre amis. Les enfants ont apprécié les jeux balançoire, Ping Ping, badminton et la piscine ! Le gîte est spacieux avec un équipement complet. Il est bien situé pour les visites touristiques entre le Périgord et le Limousin.
Kathy et Dave sont disponibles pour rendre notre sejour plus agréable !
Dave et Kathy sont des gens adorables qui ont rendu notre séjour parfait. Nous n’avions jamais eu autant de petites attention dans un même gîte ! Tout y est fait pour passer une semaine au calme dans un équipement impeccable. Les installations sont idéales pour les enfants qui sont occupés toute la semaine. Ne manquait rien sauf peut être une deuxième semaine de vacances ! À recommander les yeux fermés !!!
Merci encore infiniment à vous deux ... et à l’année prochaine !
The famous Wednesday morning Piegut market is only 10 minutes drive away. There is a comprehensive publicity brochure on site with details of local towns and villages and lots of attractions within an hour or so from our Gite.
