Welcome to La Grange - Gite Mur de Barrez
When you arrive in Marcillac, 4km from Mur de Barrez, the barn (the translation of La Grange) is the first thing you notice before your eyes settle on the stunning valley views beyond.

Our barn has been designed to give you a high level of comfort combined with peace and tranquility. With a total surface of about 230m², spread over three levels, there are three en-suite bedrooms with really comfortable beds and luxury bedlinen. The main living floor, measuring about 100m² is fully open plan with a kitchen kitted out for the keenest of cooks, a large dining area, and two seating areas separated by a rotating log burner. Walk through the sliding doors at the far end to arrive at the perfect terrace, overlooking the valley.

Had a fantastic time staying at Les Secrets du Bonheur and would thoroughly recommend anyone staying there. The Gite is luxurious and high spec and the surroundings are spectacular. You are only a five minute drive from Mur de Barrez, an historic town full of character, and there are also lots of activities you can do not far away including...

Management response:

Thanks James and Gemma. You were a pleasure to have as neighbours and I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay.

We wanted a getaway from it all break over New Year and couldn't have dreamed of a better place. Magnificent views, house extremely well equipped, good heating and wood burner, plenty of hot water, luxury bed linen and towels. Six friendly donkeys in the garden so no food waste!! Charming hosts ... just hope we meet again very soon

Management response:

Thank you so much for your very kind words. It was a pleasure to have you 'fill up' the village of Marcillac for the last few days of 2014. Thank you too for leaving the place so immaculate on departure, it was very much appreciated. With our thanks, Hanneke & Tony
