Total relaxation in a stunning location

5 of 5
We stayed in this lovely gite from 17-24 September 2016. The accommodation had everything we needed including an extremely well-equipped kitchen, a modern bathroom with an excellent shower, a big comfy bed and places to sit and relax while reading or watching TV. The balcony with its far reaching wonderful views of the beautiful Dordogne countryside is the perfect place to sit at any time of the day, watching the air balloons go by, eating, drinking, watching the sun go down, enjoying the peace and quiet, and just feeling total deep-down relaxation take hold of you. It was a real pleasure for us to meet Vincent and Maria who could not have been more helpful and friendly. On their recommendation we went to the brilliant Sunday market at St Cyprien and as we drove there it seemed every car in the area was heading in that direction. We can definitely recommend the lasagne we bought there! We visited Montpazier, a 13th century bastide town founded by Edward I, we went to Domme and Sarlat and climbed up to the castle at Beynac, and also explored the little church in St Cybranet. The weather and the views were wonderful wherever we went, and on our last day we bought delicious pastries from the patisserie in Castelnaud and walked by the river in the still warm sunshine. A week is not long enough to explore everything this area has to offer, we were extremely sad to leave, and we would definitely like to stay here again. Thank you Vincent and Maria for a wonderful week. Anne and Ken, Yorkshire

Dordogne at its best

5 of 5
Gorgeous house in a lovely part of the Dordogne. Spent the week there recently with family and it worked really well. Highlights - were an excellently set up kitchen, quality of place and fittings, space/gardens around the property and of course the lovely view to Domme from in and out of the house. Suited young kids really well too. Again, can't really fault it in anyway and hope to return one day.

Highly recommended

5 of 5
1. Beautiful location with great views 2. Great to be close to the village (small and sleepy but with good market, 2 bakeries, butcher/traiteur, restaurant, bars...) 3. House is very comfortable and just about the best equipped we have ever stayed in 4. Hosts are terrific and gave us some excellent recommendations, perfectly tailored to our interests 5. Close to so many stunning places to visit (Sarlat, Roque-Gageac, Domme) that as week just won't be long enough 6. Lots of good walks close by - also well signed cycle routes and quiet, safe roads 7. But also perfect for doing nothing, sitting by the pool in the sunshine with a pastis listening to birdsong or curling up in front of the woodburner with a book 8. For foodlovers, the place is paradise with inspiring markets to buy local, seasonal food; a well equipped kitchen to prepare it and a choice of indoor and outdoor dining space to enjoy leisurely meals 9. For a break from cooking there are lots of good restaurants - not least the Auberge in the village - four courses for under 13 euros (including soup which came in a tureen not just a bowl, similarly the cheese course was presented in whole pieces to cut off as much as liked and wine included) 10. At the end of the day, beds of deep comfort - we slept for hours in peace
