The
Experience

There is a gentle elegance about this house and the people who live in it, including three sleek cats and two friendly dogs. Of Scots and Irish origin, the Barrs also give you run of the pretty garden with swimming pool. Their love for this 1750s farmhouse shows in their artistic touch with decorating, their mix of old and modern furniture, their gorgeous big bedrooms done in soft pale colours that leave space for the views that rush in from the hills. A high place of comfort and civilised contact where dinner in the airy white living room is a chance to get to know your kind, laid-back hosts more fully.

What a wonderful welcome from Mary & Greig (& Fergus the dog!) A marvellous evening spent drinking wine, eating delicious and plentiful home cooked food, and chatting! The bed was comfortable, the room spotless and the view from the bedroom window one of French bucolic beauty. The bathroom was spacious and aside the typical French plumbing quirks, more than adequate with plenty of good towels, hairdryer, soaps etc provided. In the morning Grieg laid on a hearty breakfast to set us up for the day ahead. Thank you Mary, Greig & Fergus!

We had an excellent evening with Mary and Greig and their local French ( and Irish) family friends. They made us extremely welcome and engaged us in warm witty conversation facilitated by their very generous attitude towards supplying food and wine. Oh, and Chartreuse. We were sorry only to be staying for one night

Back to Longeville for our summer visit to the mountains. Food as good as ever and wit never in short supply with the Irish/Scottish one-two combination. Great place to enjoy the Isere countryside and also convenient for trips to and from the Alps or Switzerland. One piece of advice - keep your slippers safe when enjoying the pool - the dog tried to nick mine!

What a fantastic place! Mary and Greig were welcoming from the moment we called them from England, to the day we left lovely Longeville. The house is beautiful, the beds comfy and the swimming pool a real treat. We enjoyed dinner so much on the first night that we stayed in on the second night too. Great food and interesting conversation. Mary went out of her way to provide lots of carbohydrates for my partner who was preparing to cycle the Etap du Tour. We would highly recommend Longeville and it’s fabulous hosts!

Amanda, Salisbury

We had the most wonderful welcome from Mary and Gregg. Tea on arrival. Drinks before our delicious 3 course dinner with wine. We enjoyed ‘around the world conversation’ with our interesting hosts. We swam at least 2 or 3 swims in the blue warm pool. Comfy beds and excellent breakfast . And thank you so much ,Mary and Gregg ,for guiding us around the magic forest for our first electric bike ride.We will be back. Highly recommended.

Flossy, Chester

We were made very welcome by Mary and Greig Barr in their beautiful home and enjoyed an evening with them en route to Calais. Everything was very comfortable and the delicious evening meal much appreciated. What a privilege it is to be the recipients of such hospitality if only for a night’s stay!

Jane and david, Leicestershire

Wow, what a place. Faultless in every way. Mary & Greig and their visiting family were so kind & thoughful. Our children enjoyed their stay too, particularly playing on the piano & in the warm outdoor pool. The house has a rustic charm and the views are spectacular. The best thing has to be the hospitality though, made to feel so at ease and welcome, nothing is too much trouble. Mary & Greig make a great team & the home cooked meals and wonderful breakfasts are delicious. This place came highly recommended and we now understand why! Looking forward to a return visit.

Katie, Surrey

This was a perfect place to stop off on our way to the Alps. Mary and Greig were the perfect hosts. The house is charming and welcoming. The pool is the perfect temperature. We had a beautiful home cooked meal and interesting conversation with our hosts and the other guests. This was more than dog friendly too, Poppy, our exhuberant 10 month old Labrador was even allowed a swim. This is a classic Alistair Sawday place, and we could not have expected better. Thank you.

Elizabeth, Lille

Our family of 5 were lucky enough to be one of the first guests to stay in the beautiful self-contained gite that the owners Grieg and Mary lovingly built in the style of the local area. The views from all the rooms were spectacular! What made our stay particularly memorable was the delightful company of Mary, Greig and their family members who were generous with their hospitality. We stayed just over a week, and they made us feel totally at home. We would love to visit again (our 6 year old is already asking when he could next jump in to that amazing pool!). A BIG thank you.

Aki, London

Wonderful welcome, excellent room and great food. What's not to like!

Nigel, Buckland village

We were made to feel especially welcome by Mary and Grieg who naturally made us feel at home. Their house and garden are delightful with lovely views over rolling countryside and the good sized swimming pool was very welcome. We experienced great home cooking with wine included.

Robert, Macclesfield, cheshire

We were very apprehensive about staying in someone else's house as we have normally used hotels on the way to The Alps. We missed our train and so turned up in the dark. We were welcomed by Mary and Greig who are just lovely and we were treated to a fabulous home cooked meal. My kids can be fussy with food but they ate everything placed in front of them. That said, so did we- it was lovely! We were treated to the full wonder of the property and location in the morning. Even in the rain the property was beautiful and the children loved running around. Would we stay again - yes! Loved it

Neil, London

This is a fantastic place to stay. The hosts are truely charming and wonderfully hospitable. Breakfast and supper were delicious and nothing was too much trouble. A lovely setting with lovely people!

Toti, London

iv stayed at Grieg/Marys many times and with Greig s Scottish dry wit and Marys irish charm a stay hear is lovely food /wine is unbelievable and always look forward to my stay this is a 10 star B/B

Lawrence

Just how do they do it? Mary and Greig have an exceptional rapport with guests - we felt as though we were old friends within minutes of arrival - joining two other guests for supper, just as if we were at home! We enjoyed an excellent meal, with copious wine, very tasty and prepared with detailed care by Mary. Totally relaxing - oiled by a delightful mixture of Scottish humour and Irish charm. We'd spent three weeks in Italy, always on rock hard beds - the comfort of the bed and deep silence of the night was bliss! . . and we met a Met fingerprint expert & a Rolls-Royce executive - of course!

Michael

We stayed 2 nights and would have stayed longer. The place is very characterful, comfortable and peaceful. Mary and Greig provide a warm welcome and great conversation. A pleasure to have spent time with them. We enjoyed a very nice evening meal and top quality breakfasts. Two friendly dogs add to the relaxed feel of the place.

Michael

A peaceful and extremely comfortable spot with delightful and thoughtful hosts. Spacious and spotless accommodation - a wonderful place to relax.

Howard

We stayed at Longeville on our way up from Provence back to Calais.The house is extremely pretty, set in lovely countryside Mary and Greig were perfect hosts. We had a dog and a baby with us and both had a lovely time. Marys cooking was delicious and she cooked a wonderful vegetarian meal for us. Longevilles location would lend itself to a perfect stopover on the way to the Alps or Provence. We will definitely return!

Jo

Greig and Mary were great fun to stay with as they are both very amusing, engaging and generous. Their house is a delight and the accommodation is excellent. We loved our stay. It was so relaxing staying here and we soon felt like old friends as we walked the dogs, swam in the pool (with stunning views of the magnificent countryside) and shared meals with them and their charming family and friends.
