The first time we visited David was in the process of building La Bergerie and it was such a labour of love that we vowed to return one day and spend time there. We were not disappointed. This gite has everything you could possibly wish for. Luxury accommodation in a truly tranquil setting with access to a fabulous pool that is a real bonus. The Porters are fabulous hosts, always available whenever you need them but never intrusive.Their suggestions for places to visit and especially places to eat really enhanced our stay. We fell in love with Brive - a fantastic historical town of great character. We even managed to take in a pre-season friendly match involving the towns rugby team which was most enjoyable. Lazy days spent soaking up the sun, catching up on some reading, eating and drinking, laughing and joking. Many happy memories. We would highly recommend this property to anyone.

Bikes, pool, goals, trampoline, basket ball! Wonderful space with relaxing field views. Laid back area where EVERYTHING is closed after 12pm on a Sunday (so be aware if you arrive on a Sunday) but that way of life is very relaxing. Middle of the countryside and next to a working farm. We had a great holiday here.
