What would you get if you crossed an interior designer with a head for management and haut cuisine with a Renaissance man of American/French parentage who loves history and landscaping? You wold probably get something like Domaine du Haut Baran. In no time guests feel like eagerly anticipated house guests and leave as friends. This chateau had been neglected and... More

Nestled in a lush and ancient region of SW France is this Eden for artists, history buffs, and lovers of unspoiled nature. Listed as one of National Geographic's top Secret Places, the Lot Valley has been inhabited for at least 29,000 years, when magnificent cave paintings were made. Mideval castles, towns and churches of honey-colored stone are everywhere, perched impossibly... More

Agree with most reviews this place is beautiful, with a stunning pool, huge rooms and a quant french country side location. If you're looking to relax this is perfect. My only gripe would be Breakfast is a little light ....but then jumping into such a beautiful pool shortly after quickly helps the hunger Great stay

Come here and you will be well taken care of by owners William and Rosalie Hass, a warm and friendly French/American couple who have lived here and called this place home for about 15 years. The Haut Baran is located in a quiet rural area in the Lot department of SW France, and the building simply oozes charm and character... More

I and 12 others were on the trip with Cathleen S who writes the "French Spoken" review. From day one this woman was finding fault and pouting about anything she could find, while 12 other people were over the moon about the accomodations, food, spirit of service and the fabulous facility. Cathleen was marginalized almost immediately by the group for... More

A lovely setting, but one doesn't feel much joy coming from the owners. Though William has incredible knowledge about the area and is at his best regailing the history, Rosalie always has the same answer to every question: NO. Perhaps it is because she spends her time doing laundry or dishes? They have a british cook (! ) and only... More

In September 2002, 14 of us rented out Domaine du Haut Baran. We were an odd mix of people wanting to spend a week cycling, sightseeing, eating, and drinking. William and Rosalie worked very hard to make sure that every one of us had a fantastic vacation. The location is picturesque. The grounds are spacious. The rooms are comfortable, and... More

The Baran is a gorgeous yet cozy restored farmhouse sitting on 16 acres of rolling French countryside. Owned by expats Bill and Rosalie, who will make you feel right at home. Rosalie's warmth turned the daily breakfast into a special occasion, and Bill is an amazing tour guide -- as fluent in his ancestral French as in the best historical... More
