Property was nicely located, private, very well maintained and looked after. Exceptionally clean and tidy, very spacious yet cosy and snug. Fantastic area with a wonderful lake within a very short walk. uninterrupted views for miles. Close to local town which has everything you would need and just a short drive to Bergerac. The owners were great hosts and the property is a credit to them, it comes highly recommended.

Perfect! Wish I was back now!

Down a peaceful small side road surrounded by a beautiful garden. Only 2 minutes by foot from the bustling bastide village of Eymet. What a perfect few days away, The gîte is tastefully finished and very comfortable - sleep came easily, we were left wanting for nothing. Sue and Jeff were absolutely fab hosts! We arrived late Sunday afternoon and didn't have any milk. Sue not only provided milk but a lovely bottle of wine! They also took the time to talk with us about the experiences of living in France over a glass or 2 of red (as we are planning to move to the area.) Their info was invaluable. We also got into talking about Jeff's work in special effects on such films as Superman, Indiana jones, Star Wars, Labyrinth and Dark Crystal! Absolutely fascinating. Can't wait to go back. Highly recommend.
