A lovely tranquil region of France

5 of 5
A week in this lovely cottage in rural France was a highlight of a two-month trip from New Zealand to Europe. Peter and Jeanette were so welcoming and helpful but also respected our privacy. The cottage is beautiful. It is very well laid out, clean and comfortable and while we loved tripping around the area to small villages with their markets and their restaurants, we also enjoyed spending time at our cottage. The whole complex has been developed as an ideal holiday retreat for couples or families and we have certainly talked about it a lot as a highlight of our trip.

A truly idyllic property

5 of 5
What an amazing, stunning and luxurious holiday home, we feel truly privileged to have stayed here. We have enjoyed numerous holidays in France, staying in a variety of lovely houses but we have never experienced these levels of spacious luxury living, peace, tranquillity and such a wonderful ambience anywhere, which combined with a wonderful welcome (and as mentioned by previous guests a truly outstanding welcome hamper) from owners Sarah and Graham - we know it will never be beaten as a destination to return to as often as we possibly can! As soon as you enter the gates you feel cosseted and around every corner, both inside and out, you are greeted by another wonderful view, topped off by the superbly situated pool in which we whiled away many happy hours. It was incredibly relaxing to spend our evenings on the gorgeous terrace with a glass of local wine after our meal watching the sun setting over the horizon and we were so lucky to have had the opportunity to spend two fantastic evenings with Graham and Sarah and their wonderful dogs, the gorgeous Boris and Mickey, who we worried our two teenage girls would smuggle home with us! We also loved seeing the gecko's around the garden, swallows diving over the pool and on our last morning watching deer feeding in the next door field......totally spellbinding. We did find time to venture out and particularly enjoyed visits to the stunning town of Sarlat, so atmospheric, a relaxing Dordogne river cruise on a traditional Gabarre, from La Roque Gageac and finally a wonderful day in St Emillion and an open top bus tour of the surrounding vineyards to fully appreciate where our wines originated!! As you can tell we would recommend Maison De Nicola without any reservations and will simply sum up by saying book now you won't ever regret it! Finally, and most importantly, we felt we arrived as clients and left this wonderful place with two great new friends. Thank you so much for letting us share your little piece of paradise Graham and Sarah, we can't wait to return.
