Beautiful gives, excellent hosts, fantastic holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the converted barn for a week with our dog. We loved the renovation of the barn, really comfortable, clean and had everything you needed. The pool was fantastic to cool off on hot days, and Phil and Cyndi even had a paddling pool for the dog too! There was lots to do around the gites such as walking, exploring towns and eating out. Phil and Cyndi made some excellent recommendations for things for us to do and were great hosts, attentive when we needed them but definitely gave us space to relax on our own. Would definitely come here again and recommend it to others!

Stunning barn conversion with excellent amenities

  • 5 of 5

Stunning converted barn conversion, with every amenity you could want, including a very welcome bottle of wine upon arrival!

The property is beautifully presented with its own swimming pool and sun terrace. The owners are really hospitable and are happy to recommend places of interest to visit and introduce you to the local village life in Jumilhac le Grand.

Would strongly recommend this property to family and friends as a lovely venue for a holiday.

A fabulous 5 star property

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful barn conversion with full amenities, including an unexpected bottle of wine on arrival!

The rooms were luxurious and the place was spotlessly clean. The garden was secluded so you felt safe and had privacy. The owners were lovely and incredibly hospitable - I'd certainly recommend this to my friends and family.

Great accommodation in a rural setting

  • 5 of 5

This place is near Jumilhac, but tucked away in a quiet location. We stayed in the barn which has two twin rooms and a double. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of space. The place was clean and delightfully furnished. Phil and Cyndi were very keen to ensure our stay was a success and they gave lots of advice about what to see and do. We particularly enjoyed Brantome and Segur. There is plenty more to discover, so we look forward to returning in the future.

You will not be disappointed

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Phil and Cyndi but our first to the newly renovated barn. The work has been carried out to a high standard and is a credit to the owners.

The whole site is spacious and well looked after and the separate pools for both cottage and barn are a welcome relief on hot days. The property was spotless and well equipped, even down to a garlic crusher. We were very well looked after and given suggestions as to outings and restaurants of which there are many to choose from. The chateau in Jumilhac should be on the itinerary and slightly further afield is Limoges which is also worth a visit. Another "must" is a trip to Oradour-sur-glane which has a haunting stillness.

The region is less busy than the more popular areas of the Dordogne but better for it in many ways.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for the excellent review. As we did last year, we enjoyed having you both stay with us and thank you very much for the exceptional way you left the barn clean and tidy...! We both hope you visit us again some time. Thanks again, Phil & Cyndi

fantastic accommodation and holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to Liberte Bosquet gites, last year we stayed in the cottage and this time we opted for the newly renovated barn.

The barn is well equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday. It's light and airy throughout and the ceiling fans are a real boon to cool down the bedrooms.

Outside is a good sized private garden and lovely heated pool, which was very welcome after days out.

The surrounding area is stunning and Cyndi & Phil are always on hand with tips and advice so that you maximise your visit to this lovely part of France. There are some places that we wouldn't have found without their guidance. They even looked after our dog whilst we did the wine shop!

Overall our holiday was exceptional and we've already booked our return visit next year.

From the Owner

We bought what was then called Mason Le Bac, in January 2011 after seeing it's potential as a small holiday business in a very pretty and unspoiled corner of the Dordogne. After extensive searching in this part of France we found the Jumilhac Le Grand area to be perfect for our needs, ie not commercial, in a small hamlet, not too far from a pretty village (Jumilhac), not too far from a bigger town with enough shopping, hospitals etc (Saint-Yrieix-la-Perche) and secluded/private enough for us and guests to enjoy the site to its full potential. Currently we have two gites completely refurbished and ready to let,
