About the Owner

We've been married over 20 years (how time flies when you're having fun). We moved to the area in 2003, after redundancy, in search of an "adventure" and to escape the City rat race. We've never looked back. We live here permanently, absolutely love the life and the area. So much so, that all our family now live in France within 45 minutes of us. None of us would even contemplate going back to the UK, it's great to visit, but for us, this is home. We went from being bankers to builders, creating the gites, to running our own business and love every day. We also love our free time during the winter, to go on holiday, whether it's cruising or diving or both. Or the odd building project for the family. Life is never dull and now we're doing it all over again.

Red Shutters 2015 The Barn 2016

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Red Shutters in 2015 loved it so much we brought our family to stay in The Barn this year. It is just on the outskirts of a small village so is really peaceful, but is in easy reach of all attractions most places to visit are under an hours drive away.

The property was clean and very well equipped and the owners were on hand to help if we had any problems or if we needed more information on local attractions.

I would have no problem recommending either property to family and friends

Fantastic Barn

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have enjoyed Red Shutters! The location is very peaceful, and the facilities excellent. Making the booking is very simple and Alison & Alex are very helpful. On arrival the Barn and house more than match the pictures. A great place to visit, particularly for larger groups of family or friends.

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a week at Red Shutters Barn and have had a wonderful time. The property owners were very friendly and helpful and the barn very clean and well equipped. The pool and hot tub are clean and well maintained and we enjoyed evenings in the bubbles under the stars. The area is very beautiful with lots to do. We would highly recommend this place.

Amazing property & beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing property in a beautiful, peaceful location. The high standard of accommodation & superb hospitality of the owners, Alison & Alex, just adds that bit extra to the experience. With open views across the surrounding countryside & local village, it would be hard to beat. Easy drive to many of the main tourist attractions in the Dordogne. So much to see & do, it would be hard to fit all you wish to see in a single holiday! We had the best time ever & will most certainly be returning with family & friends to let them experience the luxury of this accommodation.

Fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

Last time we visited, Alex and Alison were in the last few months of completing Red Shutters, so to stay there this time and to see it all finished was great. There were 10 of us spread across the house and barn, and every single one of us had an amazing time. There was plenty of room and everything we needed was there. We had very warm weather for the entire week and the pool and tub was very well used! Would highly recommend any of their properties and we will definitely be back.

Excellent holiday accommodation which when coupled with good weather proved so good we are returning again next year. Perfect for big family with all age groups well catered for. It has much more than you could ever imagine for the price and the hosts are extremely friendly ex-pats who go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely review. Getting a re-booking for the following year before guests leave is the best feedback & recommendation we can ever have. Nice that it happens so often.

From the Owner

Alison wanted another project, but this is a bit bigger than we'd imagined. We're having to turn away & disappoint so many people, from our existing property (ref 8006346) that we've decided we'd better do it all over again. Welcome to “Gites with a pool 2" otherwise know as La Banne Nord or between us the more catchy title of "Red Shutters". The property is just 1km from our existing house. It is set in stunningly beautiful rolling countryside. It's incredibly peaceful, yet just minutes away from all the most popular tourist attractions. It's also within easy reach of the major towns - the regional capital Perigueux, Sarlat and Bergerac, very handy for the airport. Cendrieux is a working village, with lots happening throughout the year. We even have night markets in summer.

From the Owner

Peace, tranquility, yet amazing facilities. We don't know anyone else who offers the same range for the same price; Fully equipped kitchens (we challenge you to find anything we have forgotten), heated and covered pool, hot tub/jacuzzi, plenty of bathrooms and very comfortable beds! The property is to the same high standards as our existing properties - where - this year 50% + of our guests are repeat visitors, some of whom booked 12 months ahead, before they'd even left. That says a massive amount about the holiday we offer. We provide a very personal service, if you want it. Recommending restaurants (and booking them), places to visit - how to make the most of your stay. We promise you won't be disappointed.
