Excellent Stay

5 of 5
Wonderful stay everything we could have hoped for. Lesley and Geoff were perfect hosts. We made full use of the private swimming pool, nice and secluded setting, lovely views across the valley with lots of wildlife to see. We had a bbq most evenings accompanied by the good cd collection at the cottage. Perfect relaxing holiday hope to return again soon. Colin & Angela Newbury Berkshire England

Wonderfully Charming & Amazing Property!! Highly Recommend Le Petit Verger!!

5 of 5
We had an incredible stay at Le Petit Verger!! Truly an amazing property with incredible charm and comfort. The pictures do not show the incredible beauty surrounding the two adorable well appointed Cottages. This is a very private and relaxing place to kick back and enjoy all it has to offer. The Cottages are completely remodeled and offer up everything you need for a comfortable stay. We stayed in the Stone Cottage which has an lovely outside area for dining and when we arrived there was a welcome basket, with all sorts of goodies. Very nice touch!! Well equipped kitchens and bath too! The swimming pool is a very nice size with lots of room. We had a great time just swimming and laying around the pool on hot days. It was also a real treat sitting by the pool at nighttime looking at all the amazing shooting stars and constellations . The entire sky was filled with stars and so clear you could see Mars and Saturn. This is a must do in summer!! The beauty of the Le Petit Verger is not completely captured in the photos. We were completely amazing by how stunning everything was. It surpassed our expectations!! This is also a great location to explore the regions of the Dordogne. The town of Hautefort is completely charming and has a great Patisserie and lots of places to dine. We did the night tour of the Hautefort Chateau which is really fun!! Other activities in the area we recommend are canoing down the scenic Dordogne River. We also went to the Caves at Rouffignac which was only a 40min drive. We really had an amazing stay and would highly recommend Le Petit Verger to friends and family!! This is truly a special place!!
