"Beautiful barn in a beautiful location"
We had a wonderful two weeks in Max and Sue's beautiful house. The house has everything you could possibly need and the garden and pool were fantastic. We cycled to the nearby lakes and high ropes on the bikes provided with the house through lovely countryside. A lovely quiet location and a fantastic holiday. Would love to come back!
"Peaceful, beautiful place with everything you could possibly need. A great holiday, thank you."
A luxurious homely barn conversion with loads of equipment for families. Bikes, pool, goals, trampoline, basket ball! Wonderful space with relaxing field views. Laid back area where EVERYTHING is closed after 12pm on a Sunday (so be aware if you arrive on a Sunday) but that way of life is very relaxing. Middle of the countryside and next to a working farm. We had a great holiday here.
"Amazing place to stay, perfect for families"
We had an amazing time at Raverlat, the barn is beautiful, with pmore than enough room for two families. Everything you might need has been thought of and the welcome pack of bread, pate, cheese and wine was perfect. The pool was lovely and warm, the children wanted to be in it all day every day! They did make the most of the trampoline and wide open space available as well though. The area is very peaceful and relaxed, but not far to find lovely towns with markets and castles. Thank you for a wonderful holiday, we hope to return!
"Fabulous family & friends holiday"
We had a fantastic time at The Barn. The weather was great and The Barn had everything we needed. We all enjoyed the outside space with the kids spending many hours in the pool and on the trampoline. We felt very at home from day one. We did venture out on several days but we could have quite happily spent all our time round the pool. Thank you.
"Total peace and tranquility"
We have recently returned from a thoroughly enjoyable two week stay in Raverlat. The property is in a beautiful location, close to the village of Les Salles and just a short drive to St Mathieu. The house was perfect for our needs and exceeded our expectations. The children adored the outside facilities. The swing was especially popular, along with the pool, pitch, trampoline and we enjoyed lots of French cricket too! The men enjoyed exploring the area on their bikes finding beautiful small villages and lakes just a stones throw away. The market at Piguet was impressive, La Guerlie and its neighbouring lake were lovely to visit and bike/walk around. This is our first visit to the Limousin region and we loved the scenery and wildlife. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property. Thank you for two weeks of total peace and tranquility - just what we all needed. 😊
"Amazing barn in your own little world!"
6 of us (2 couples each with a 2/3 year old) stayed at the barn for the last 2 weeks of June and had an amazing time. Weather wise, the 1st week was 35oC plus everyday, with the hottest part being between 5pm and 8pm and second week we had sunny showers and rain. We arrived early on the Saturday, just as the cleaner was finishing and she gave us a quick whistle stop tour of the barn and grounds, including the lovely welcome basket which would be a life saver for those who arrive late. Inside the barn there is a folder with all the information you need. Everything is straight forward, logging onto the WiFi, using the pool and alarm, and the amazing coffee machine which helped to make a great start each morning. The barn is very well equipped with all mod cons, but still within keeping of the character of the barn. The kitchen has everything you can think of equipment wise and the pantry has plenty of storage space for the wine. The bedrooms are very spacious with lots of hanging space and the beds seem very big compared to king size beds back home. Two bedrooms have en suite, but for the others, there is the biggest bathroom in France with a lovely roll top bath & shower. Outside, there is lots of room for children to run around in, the pool is excellent - we used it in the second week when it was 18oC and it was fine. The trampoline is a great addition for children too. In the garage storage, there are plenty of bikes, a Boardman road bike, ladies and gents mountain bikes and children's bikes. For very small children, you'll need to bring a child seat as we struggled to find one near by. There are some great trails for all the family that go from the barn through the hamlet and onto numerous lakes. It is to be expected in the region, but there are quite a lot of bugs (flys/moths/wasps) that make their way into the barn so arm yourself with some bug spray and candles. Locally, you can pick up bread, croissants & cakes at the bakers in Les Salles Lavauguyon, which is a 15 minute walk, or 2 minute drive. Saint Matthieu is 10 minutes drive & has an Intermarche (medium supermarket) which has everything you'll need, or the town has smaller independent shops. We visited the Arte Cafe, which does a great coffee & very nice food, le Terrassee is very friendly for a quick drink or ice cream. We would recommend the market in Piegut on Wednesday or Chalus on Friday. All in all, a great trip staying in a huge secluded barn with plenty of space! Mr S.
