It's A Family Affair!

 

A brief history!

In the mid 70's Myf & Doug Barker took their young family (of 6 children) off to the Dordogne for a 6 month sabatical and rented a mill near Aubeterre. That summer they explored for the region and when they happened upon Chez Galy they fell in love and brought the house and 15 acres.

 

Then it was typical Perigord house - a small cottage and an attached animal / hay barn. They spent many wonderful holidays here over the next 15 years and it was only when a fire burnt down the barn that they converted the rest of the house and added the downstairs bedroom, wc, study, salon and a pool.

 

Very little changed for another 20 years.  When the house was left to the children in 2013 it was decided it was time to add some funds and retore the house. Work commenced in Dec 2014 and was completed in May 2015. The house is now available for lets all year round.

 

The house is managed by Wendy Meers, a family friend, who bought an adjacent farm and set up Quirky Camping at Chez Devalon.

 

The Owners!

The owners are now the six enterprising children who have a variety of businesses and additonal properties that maybe of interest to you.
