We moved to France in 2005 and after a long search, found this property in a small hamlet between Sarrazac and Jumilhac-le-Grand. A couple of years of planning and easy, problem-free renovation (we've all seen the tv programmes!) and in 2008, one end of our 300 year-old barn was transformed into “Les Rossignols d’Ancheyra”.<br/>We live in the same hamlet, available at all times, should you require our help or advice, though of course we realise that you may prefer to be left to your own devices.

Lovely spacious villa with very comfy beds. 4 big bedrooms and 3 bathrooms was perfect for our party of 4 adults and 4 kids. The garden and pool were fabulous and the setting is glorious. Very quiet and peaceful area, and owners on hand for any help needed. Outside eating areas on balcony and in garden and BBQ were well used. We had a great holiday here and would highly recommend it.
