About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Renata Barnes

We moved from the San Francisco bay area in 2004. We love the peaceful friendly area and are continually amazed at the beautiful sights and delicious food. We raised our 2 daughters here. We both enjoy meeting new people from around the world and look forward to a glass of wine with you!

Year property purchased 2003
Why this location? Hautefort is in the centre of the Dordogne. It's not in the middle of the heavily touristed crowded areas, where you have to fight with traffic! You can easily get to the best tourist sites, but then leave the crowds to relax in the calm quiet of our property. Listen to the birds, crickets and frogs. Drive stunning country roads and within 45 minutes, in any direction, there are amazing sites to enjoy! Day trips abound! Even 2 of the most beautiful villages of France 2015 are near!
Unique benefits of property Location Location Location! Les Gites Fleuris has the feel of being away from it all, but you can walk to everything you need. Many gites have the countryside experience, but if you want a baguette you have to drive to get it. not here! People feel like they are at home here, and we enjoy so much meeting our guests, and enjoying a glass of wine and a good chat! You will feel like this is your home in France.

La Petite Rose is a delightful small stone cottage for a couple. It is in a very rural area but within a short walk for the morning bread!. The gardens are large with small intimate dining spots. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The owners are on site and are available to solve any small issues. A 3km car journey away is the pretty small village of Hautefort with a couple of very tempting restaurants. We had a very relaxing week and can recommend the property.

Lovely gite in a stunning part of the countryside. Had a very relaxing and interesting week. Owners very friendly and helpful and ensured I had a memorable 'milestone' birthday evening at the gite. Would recommend without hesitation.
