Chris, Rachel and Ellie are wonderful hosts with lots of recommendations for things to do in the area (if you can drag yourself away from the pool). They helped us find places to canoe, eat and explore. Le Chai was really well-equipped - they have thought of all the little details to make your stay easier so there were no 'if only there was a...' moments in the kitchen. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and easy to explore on foot, or you can borrow a bike and go further afield. We particularly loved the pool, it is gorgeous and immaculately maintained, while the grounds were brilliant for the kids to explore and play. A fantastic holiday - we all wish we were still there! Thanks to Chris, Ellie and Rachel for a magical time.

We weren't disappointed - in fact Le Pige exceeded our hopes and we had an absolutely fantastic week. We have visited the Dordogne a number of times and usually dash around to see the many beautiful sights, but Le Peynau is so lovely we just wanted to stay in the gite and chill by the great pool. That said, Eymet and Duras were easy to get to and well worth visiting. Rachel, Chris and little Ellie were great hosts and gave us some excellent recommendations for local places to see. Le Pige was very well equipped and beautifully presented and the four of us were very comfortable. The setting was absolutely stunning, with views over fields of sunflowers to the woods beyond. We were blessed with superb weather, but understand from Rachel and Chris that we had typically warm weather with endless blue skies. Needless to say, we would highly recommend Le Pige and Le Peynau and will definitely be returning.
