Our family

We traded our Belgian city life for a French nature adventure in August 2018.

The host is Tom, 44, a biologist by training. He worked for years as a computer scientist. Too passionate about nature, he convinced his wife to buy a barn in the Lot countryside in 2005. Also passionate about good food, he followed training as a cook, chocolate maker, sommelier and beekeeper. Tom brings your stay on taste.

The hostess, Inge, 42, is a remedial teacher by training and has served special youth for years. She will welcome you with her warm personality. Trained as a masseuse, she also takes care of our wellness area.

Gaston, 10 years old, is social and helpful. Passionated by animals, he would like to become a vet. Maurice, 7 years old, is open and funny. He adores dogs. Our two boys, Both very talkative, love nature and the outside life. They collect sticks and stones, they examine plants and animals. Gaston and Maurice love mountainbike and they practice judo.

We welcome you in Dutch, French or English.

Estafête

In the past, our barn was part of the Monteil family farm. It was José’s grandfather, our neighbor, who had the barn built in 1889.

The imposing barn is 25m long and 12m wide. It is built in yellow stones from the Lot. The ground floor housed the cows and pigs. We have completely stripped this floor and transformed it into five guest rooms, equipped with every comfort.

Under the majestic woodwork of the upper floor, the old hayloft, we have fitted out our private accommodation. The hangar houses the wellness area: massage, sauna and sun terrace.

Return to nature and the beauty of farm life. We have enlarged the existing plum orchard. The small vineyard has regained its former glory. We built a vegetable garden and explored the world of beekeeping with our few beehives.

And of course, we are reaping the rewards. Our own wild flower honey, homemade jam from our own fruit, plum brandy, walnut wine, natural wine, dried plums, layered vegetables, elderflower lemonade, elderberry syrup, quince paste, etc. .
