We loved the peace and tranquility of Gite Eleanor - it really is in a stunning location with beautiful countryside views all around and totally private. It was a lovely surprise when we arrived.... absolutely idyllic. Wished we could have stayed for the whole summer! Carolyn & Steve are so welcoming and friendly. They gave us privacy but help when we needed it....nothing was too much trouble. Gite Eleanor is very attractive, homely and well equipped. There are lots of lovely little touches all around......which just adds to the very high standard. The kingsize bed is very comfortable and we slept well....complete silence and darkness at night. Bliss!!! We really enjoyed the lovely big swimming pool - especially as it was so hot during our stay. It was such a unique and fab experience being in the pool surrounded by tranquil countryside listening to birdsong! The gite was a great place to explore the Dordoyne further without travelling too far - we visited Bordeaux, Bergerac, Eymet - lots of familiar voices, St. Emilion, and Sainte Foy La Grande. Thank you again for a fabulous holiday. It was just perfect. We would love to come back! Best wishes Elaine & Colin
