“Paradise in the Dordogne”
Reviewed October 3, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed here at Chez Baron, courtesy of being impressed with the positive reviews from other travellers. The only thing I can add is to say that the place exceeded our expectations and provides a true delight for a relaxing holiday. A charming French country farmhouse cottage, with stone walls, terracotta floors, with a persian rug in the living area, comfy in all the right ways. We didn't use the pool, other than to soak our feet at the end of the day, but its large and has great views over the valley below.

Kate and Andre are congenial and delightful hosts, for whom nothing was too much trouble. Kate is extremely knowledgable and gave us ideas for walks of which there are plenty and the cottage has plenty of information already.

The gite is attached to the barn and house, but Kate and Andre are very unobtrusive, but very accessible for advice and assistance. The farmlet is complete with a delightful horse called Carlux and a donkey called Cappucin, who benefited from the apples we collected on our travels. We chose the gite because it was centrally located in the Northern Dordogne and so we were able to do market days in Perigeux, visits to Brantome, and close to hand the beautiful Chateau and village in Haufeforte. We walked through some of the many small and charming villages nearby, which make you think time has stood still for a century or more. We also went horse riding in the Vezere Valley, in Les Eyzies, with Ferme de Fonluc, which was unforgettable. I would say that Chez Baron makes an outstanding place to stay in one of the most beautiful areas I have ever visited.

Reviewed September 22, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Chez Baron is truly a beautiful gem of a cottage or as they call it in the Dordogne, gite. It is perfect, set aside in the most beautiful country minutes from the village of Hautefort...just gorgeous area! Kate Johnson is such a wonderful and kind person! And the cottage of Chez Baron is really beautiful, comfortable and spacious. There is everything you might need a restful place set in gorgeous area, fully stocked kitchen, comfy bed, beautiful bath, close to perfection!

“Exactly what we wanted.”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Just had a wonderful week staying at Chez Baron. Over the past 12 or so years we have stayed in French Gites is many parts of France. This one beat them all. The attention to detail inside and out of the Gite was excellent. Almost every item you would have in your kitchen is to be found at Chez Baron. Every room is well presented and the Beds were very comfy.

When we holiday we usually like to cook 'at home' and shop daily for different French/local foods. The superbly kitted out kitchen did us proud. Plenty of cooking items and serving dishes, so long leisurely evening meals on a candle lit terrace was the order of the week. Plent of eating areas, as Breakfast in the sunshire by the Pool was a must.

Kate and Andre were superb Hosts, they were on hand if you wanted them, but left you to your devices to enjoy a tranquell relaxing holiday.

Will be back again one day.

“Lovely little cottage”
Reviewed August 20, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Chez Baron is a lovely little cottage, with a huge bathroom (great shower) and a really good size main bedroom, (very comfortable bed) which is very nicely decorated. There are two further bedrooms, that interconnect, on the 1st floor which we set up as our ironing room! The living area is very spacious and has just about everything you could need. We found the sofa and chairs a bit on the firm side but Kate (the owner) is looking into buying more cushions to make them a bit more comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped, though there is not a lot of worktop space, however there is a table nearby which can be used for prep etc. The pool is wonderful and the gardens surrounding it are idyllic. Plenty of areas for sun or shade and nice to be able to wander down the garden to visit the neighbour's horse and donkey. The cottage is in a good location, though a car is needed to travel to the nearest village for boulangerie etc, it is in a good position to visit many local attractions. The cottage can be a little on the dark side at some points in the day but there are many lamps and lights to enhance things and it does keep very cool. We only spent a week here but wished we could have stayed longer as we both felt very relaxed.
