Within the centre of St Aquilin village are amenities that are basic but adequate for those on a self-catering break, as well as a small selection of old buildings worthy of a quick visit. The most notable of these are the attractive 15th century Church of St. Eutropius, and the Dolmen of Peyre-Brown – a dolmen being a single-chamber megalithic tomb consisting of upright stones supporting a flat ‘table’.

Dolmen’s usually date back to the Neolithic period, and St Aquilin does indeed have a history that dates back to this ancient era. Evidence of this – such as a collection of axes, arrows, knives, pots and vases from the time - can be seen at the history museum in nearby Perigueux.

A lovely holiday spoiled

4 of 5
We have the following comments to make 1. We had the electricity fail,. It was necessary for us to contact Corinne, She confirmed that the "trip" had worked and reset it. We had no further problem with it. 2. We assume that should we have had a problem with plumbing then we would have required to contact Corinne. No information was supplied regarding this. 3 NO information was supplied as to how to dispose of our rubbish. 4, We were concerned aboiut the unpleasant smelling water which ran down the lane- outside the entrance gate to the property. 5 We noticed that the towels nor bed linen was changed whilst we were there. At the end of the first week the beds were used by a different family. 6. Our enjoyable holiday was spoiled when ,- the night before we left - we were informed that we ha broken the alarm system on the swimming pool.' When we arrived we were not given any information regarding the pool. At no time during our stay did the alarm sound. The children were 5 years, 3 years and 10 months old. At no time were they allowed in the pool on their own. One of the adults did notice that the pipe from the pool to the alarm was disconnected. The "poolman" said it had been broken by us. We had no means of disagreeing with him as we had never received any information as to how it worked.. Corinne produce , on her phone, .the cost of a replacement. She contacted the owners- we spoke to them and agreed that as we could not prove it otherwise we would pay for a replacement from our "damage account". We asked for the old alarm so that we could have it repaired and give it to a friend who was having a pool added to their property. This was refused. We were informed that it was essential for the old one to be given to the Assurance Company in order for them to replace it. We do not agree that we should pay for the replacement as well as the Asssurance Company. We would appreciate confirmation that the full 500 euros already paid will be refunded. Please pay this into the account from which it has already been taken. I would appreciate confirmation that this has been paid - email me please. We and our family enjoyed the holiday and house and pool. Maurice & Mavis Bellingham.

LOVELY HOME FROM HOME

5 of 5
The owners, and immediate neighbours, Phil and Maria, provide a gite that is more like a home than a rental accommodation. They have put thought and care into the creation of this lovely place and are thoughtful hosts who are prepared to offer their time and useful advice to ensure an enjoyable holiday.
