About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms ensuite with beautiful view on a "chateau"

La Grange de la Bessaronnie is a detached house with a large garden with beautiful views. With a heated swimming pool. The house is very quiet and you're surprised about the silence. After a few days if you are used to the silence you going to hear the crickets, bumblebees and toads. So you see on the old stone walls sun tanning little lizards. If you want to relax, this is the ideal place. But if you want to do nice things, there is a lot to do, it's not possible todo and see all the beautiful things in one week. You have to stay longer or you have to come back. Or you can do like me: quite your job, buy a ticket to France, get a tan, fall in love and never return...

About Claudia de Kanter

I'm very happy to live in France. I come from holland where it is very crowded and buzzy and here it's so calm and beautiful I feel like a "princess in a ferry tale".

My house feels like "in petit chateau". I hope when you stay in my house you feel the same.

Claudia de Kanter purchased this barn in 2006

Why Claudia de Kanter chose Perigord Pourpre

I fell in love with all the beautiful villages, the views, on every corner is a castle, the markets, the food, the wine and........... there is too much to love here!

What makes this barn unique

I like very much the evening market where you can eat at long tables with all the France people and dance with young and old till late in the night on French chansons.

Exceeded all expectations!

  • 4 of 5

We had high hopes for the house based on the description and the photos on the website. The reality was even better! This is a beautiful place to stay. We felt like we were being let into someone's home with the level of care and detail that has been extended to this property. It was everything we were looking for and more in terms of a French country getaway. We were able to combine sightseeing and chilling out on a daily basis, based on the location itself. And spent the evenings, cooking great local food and drinking great local wine. A big thank you to Claudia for creating such a stylish and comfortable retreat for her guests.

A French Dream Come True

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time. The house is absolutely stunning and such a beautifully furnished home. We felt a complete sense of calm and serenity from the moment we arrived. The location is so, so quiet and the garden just stunning, which for us was absolutely perfect. The only thing we missed was being able to walk to a restaurant but there are a few a very short drive away. We would definitely go back here - very high quality experience and a truly magical place.
