About the Owner/Advertiser, Ms Janine Lindsey-Jones

I used to own a deli and gift shop in the UK. My love of French food was one of the reasons I chose to move to France. I enjoy growing my own vegetables and flowers and visiting all the markets in the surrounding areas.

Year property purchased 2017
Why this location? I fell in love with this location straight away, the rolling hills were so green it didn't look real at first. There are many beautiful villages nearby and lots of events run throughout the year.
Unique benefits of property The views from the hamlet are wonderful and there is an abundance of wildlife. It is very peaceful and secluded but not far from shops, markets and restaurants.

The Owner Recommends

Villefranche de Rouergue and Najac

Villefranche de Rouergue is our closest town and the weekly Thursday market is the largest in the area. It's our favourite place to buy regional produce and very popular with the locals. It's a very historic old town with many cafes and restaurants to chose from.

Najac is about 30 minutes drive from here. It's market square is surrounded with ancient houses and a few cafe's and restaurants. The Castle is astounding, one of the highlights of the area. There are many events throughout the year and a weekly evening food market in the summer. It's also a popular place for river sports.

Other favourites (there are too many to mention) include Belcastel, Cordes and Saint Antonin Noble Val.

Just returned from a wonderful 2 week break at Pertus. The setting is very impressive the most beautiful views you could wish for Janine and Justin are very lucky to wake up to them every day. The Old Barn itself is very nice it had everything you could possible need and more the only thing we could have asked for was air conditioning as we were there during a heat wave and it was very uncomfortable to sleep at night but the wonderful pool was a lifesaver to keep cool. The pool area is a very short walk through the garden it is beautiful very private and secluded we spent all our time here trying to keep cool and relaxing.

We didn't eat out very often (fussy eaters with us) so cant give much info on local restaurants but a few miles away is a lovely town with lots of supermarkets for supplies.There is a village close by that has a bakery for fresh warm produce and was lucky to have Justin deliver us fresh croissants (thank you again).

The property is very remote only the owners property next door and a small Gite opposite but that suited us as totally relaxing the only noise you hear is wildlife and the odd farmer cutting hay. If your looking for peace and relaxation this real is the property for you.

Janine and Justin are on hand and very helpful with local knowledge and advise but they totally leave you to enjoy and not impose at all.

Loved every minute was vey sad to leave.

Thank you Janine and Justin and hopefully will meet you again.

Wonderful. The photos do not do true justice to how lovely it really is. From the moment we arrived both Janine and Justin were nothing but helpful hosts. The welcome basket of fresh bagette, butter, cheese, strawberries and cold wine was an unexpected but welcome surprise. The barn itself was large, clean and comfortable. The outside eating area with the magnificent garden views was spectacular.. the bed was large and comfortable with an incredible garden view. The pool which is a little away from the barn is large and very private.. if your idea of a holiday is peace and relaxation then this is the place. We would definitely recommend..Thank you Janine and Justin for a wonderful holiday,we hope to see you both again.
