The accommodation was even better than we ever imagined ,coupled with a very warm welcome from Jo , Gary , Amy , Hannah , Archie and Bonzo .Nothing was too much trouble and we felt really at home .There was plenty of information on local activities and places to visit in the information pack which we found really helpful . We could not have asked for a better experience and would urge anyone to visit and experience France at it's best . In fact we booked to return next year before we left .

“An idyllic location for a relaxing holiday”

My wife and our 2 children (5 & 7) and I had a very enjoyable stay in Le Grand Cornet this summer. We received a very warm welcome from Gary, Jo, Hannah and Amy, despite arriving in the pouring rain and they were incredibly friendly and accommodating throughout our stay.

The gite has been renovated to a comfortable, modern standard but retains some of its original charm and was cosy on the rainy days we had but also cool on the hotter days. It's set in an idyllic, peaceful location and the children very much enjoyed splashing in the plunge pool,feeding the chickens and ducks and bouncing on the trampoline with Hannah and Amy.

The gite was a great base for exploring the region and there was a comprehensive guide provided but we particularly enjoyed the market in Riberac, visits to Sarlat & Brantome, the caves at Lascaux and the beach at La Jemaye which is a 30 minute drive away.

After two weeks we felt relaxed and refreshed and very reluctant to leave! We would throughly recommend Moulin de la Barde to anyone wanting to stay in this area, we certainly hope to return one day.

We stayed in Le Grand Cornet early Sept for 6 nights. Gary and Jo were perfect hosts, really friendly and approachable. The gites are stunning and have everything you need and more! The grounds are perfect for young children, our 3 year old loved the chickens and the basketball net, perfect place for relaxing with a glass of wine on an evening while watching him play. We found the area perfect, as you are away from any hustle and bustle but there is plenty to do in the surrounding area if you want to. The only downside was we wished we had booked for longer! We would definitely visit again.

“Fantastic accommodation and very friendly and helpful owners”

The gite was exceptional; well equipped with all mod cons, yet retaining some of it's original rustic heritage from it's paper mill days. The Meekings family were excellent hosts, very warm, friendly and helpful. The gite contained a very informative pack that detailed activities around the area, plus important information such as opening times for local facilities, services and amenities (e.g. shops, etc.). For all other information and queries that we could not find in the pack we asked Jo and Gary Meeking who were only to happy to help. They also very kindly gave us some personal recommendations for restaurants, children's activities, etc. which were excellent, so it's well worth asking them for advise.

We had such a lovely two weeks there that we have booked up for three weeks again for next summer! Thank you again Jo, Gary, Hannah and Amy for making our time there so memorable!
