Why Maggie Uttley chose Perigord Vert
The quiet peaceful French countryside. Close to great restaurants and typical French market towns. We bought the derelict Farmhouse and Barns at Chez Gottereau 22 years ago and with hard work and lots of fun were able to keep, during the restoration, many of the features of this over 200 year old property. The Rustic Gite (converted barn) is completely separate with it's own outside facilities.
We spend the Spring, Summer and Autumn in residence and enjoy welcoming visitors to our very rural and picturesque area of the Dordogne.
What makes this barn unique
The Gite is in a great location, very quiet but close enough by car to all the shops, restaurants and historic sites etc., you could want. Vast selection of outdoor activities within a few miles. The property has it's own large private pool.
