Wonderful gite in a fabulous location

5 of 5
We recently spent a week at Carolyn and Steve's brilliant gite. The gite has everything you could need, and the view from the patio is simply stunning, especially in the evening when you can watch a perfect sunset with a glass of local wine. Carolyn and Steve are the perfect hosts, and nothing was too much trouble, they even took the time to book a restaurant for us, which given our appalling French was probably wise! There is plenty to see and do on a cloudy day, and loads of excellent local restaurants. Hopefully we can return in the not too distant future!

Relaxing holiday in the vineyards

5 of 5
My husband and I had a wonderful visit at Kiwi cottage this July. The cottage is very comfortable and had everything we needed. The well appointed kitchen had all of the equipment we needed to cook breakfasts and dinners. We loved coming back to the peaceful cottage after a day of sightseeing. The serene view of vineyards and farms makes this cottage a perfect location base to explore local Bordeaux vineyards or take day trips to Dordogne Valley attractions. Caspian, Lulu, and Jeffery (the chocolate lab) were terrific hosts. We loved all of their recommendations for local markets, restaurants, and boulangerie. My husband wanted to stay another week so he can go to the night food market in Saint Foy again! We are still dreaming about the pastries and breads in the local boulangerie in Montcaret. Thank you, Caspian and Lulu, for a wonderful stay! Send our best to Jeffery.
