Welcome to Domaine Du Haut Baran

I would like to share with you the story of how Rosalie and I came upon our magical place of Domaine du Haut Baran in the Quercy region.

In the fall of 1997, I traveled from my home in Cincinnati with my then future wife, Rosalie, to a small village called Le Boulvé, in an area of southwestern France known as the Quercy. It was not by coincidence that I chose Le Boulvé as our destination, for I had been coming to this village in the Lot department since I was five years old to visit my grandparents and attend family reunions. I wanted to share with Rosalie how I had spent my summers as a youngster and to introduce her to the French side of my family. Together, we explored many of the backroads I had bicycled as a boy and visited many of the medieval villages and prehistoric sites that my grandfather had shared with me. When we chanced upon the Domaine du Haut Baran, just 20 minutes from Le Boulvé, it was a dream come true! Both of us were struck by the fairytale beauty of the old country Inn and its wonderful private setting. The magic spell continues to this day as we purchased the property and refurbished it with loving care into a world class experience of French Country living.

When we plan a cycling tour of our region, we do it with a passion of excellence in mind. Our motto is “unpack once for a Tour de France, with full support.” Each route is meticulously planned, measured and designed to show off the natural wonders of the area. We offer full van support and, when possible, a cycling guide to give you complete confidence and flexibility for your stay.

Introducing our fellow travelers to this beautiful place we call the Quercy is the continuing dream of Rosalie and myself. Our pledge to detail and quality will help give you the experience of a lifetime and comes from our hearts to you.


William and Rosalie Haas
