About Gill Bird
We have lovingly restored this property over the past 18 years. For a number of years we lived in it with our children who went to the local schools but we have now returned to England and so use it for our holidays.
Gill Bird purchased this House in 1999
Cots and High chairs can be provided
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
We were a group of 9 people and the property provided everyone with amazing facilities & entertainment. The pool was fabulous, the games room a real treat and the rooms were beautiful!!!
Very comfortable house with excellent facilities.
Just what was wanted for our party size and make up.
Beautiful location, pretty villages and excellent wine tasting opportunities nearby.
Chateau du Sardy gardens worth visiting.
Lovely old property with facilities to keep all age groups happy. Plenty of books, DVDs and games. Table tennis and snooker tables got plenty of use! Nice quiet location but only a short walk to the boulangerie in the morning. Would happily return.
Wonderful - absolutely perfect for large family gatherings. Beautiful setting and house.
Beautifully maintained, everything thought of by the owners, our children aged 1-11 didn't want to leave. Very memorable holiday.
Perfect location for our 3-generation summer family get together
Our family party of 11 spanned 3 generations aged between 6 and 71. Our last combined holiday of this sort, 2 years ago, and also in France, had been so successful that I worried how this one could compete. I need not have done. We couldn't have asked for a better location for us all - the house, garden and pool were all just as we would have wished. The house has a lovely flow to it, with generous outside eating areas - we chose the courtyard area for a sunny breakfast, and poolside for lunch and supper ( aided by plentiful umbrellas as we embraced the 38 degree heat!) The house is large enough that escape from the general melee is possible, but equally encouraging to family interaction; we particularly enjoyed the proximity of the pool area to the house, and the calm airy cool of the sitting room to retreat from the fiercest of the sun. We hoped to have a catered meal one evening, and Gill and Hugh very kindly organised this for us with a chef from the restaurant in the village, carefully navigating our various dietary requirements; Stefan and his team were delightful and our meal was simple but delicious - even catering for our Vegan member; highly recommended! We enjoyed our morning walks to the village boulangerie (Wednesday aside, when the baker's day off necessitates a short car drive to one slightly further afield). The local pain au raisin is not to be missed! Outings to the Roman Villa in Montcaret village (a short walk) and kayaking on the Dordogne satisfied our limited appetite for adventure beyond the confines of the estate; we had come to relax and enjoy each other's company and this was perfect. A midnight swim in a cloudless, moonless, star filled sky on our last evening was a fitting end to a wonderful week. Highly recommend!
Beautiful home with lovely amenities
We enjoyed a fantastic week at Les Oiseaux with our family (ranging from 5-70years old). The house was well equipped and we all enjoyed the pool and games rooms. Everything had been thought of and Liz was on hand for local knowledge and tips. The owners were helpful and responsive to emails. Would highly recommend this property and would love to return.
