Lovely house in an ideal position. extremely well equipped and comfortable
We had a wonderful, restful stay. The setting is peaceful, the pool is perfect and as an added bonus you can get down to the river. We ate alfresco most evenings, enjoyed shopping for fresh local produce at Bergerac market and the Biocoop and treated ourselves to a memorable evening out at the Tour des Vents restaurant.There was even a local 'vide grenier' sale at which we all managed to find something amongst the plastic toys and old clothes (eg 2 le creuset loaf tins and an earthenware crock).
All four daughters plus new grandchild and boyfriends had a wonderful time. When the weather was not so good we went on walks and although the owners don't recommend it, we swam across the Dordogne (the weeds by the bank are thick so we definitely wouldn't recommend it either unless you are in company and are quite strong). The house is incredibly well equipped and we made full use of the table tennis, the boules and the barbecue. We saw lots of wildlife including a lesser spotted woodpecker, a kingfisher by the river and a snake in the woods. It was nice to see red squirrels too. If you are a large party it's very convenient both for the airport (which is practically next door but fortunately tiny and so not disturbing) and the station. We would definitely recommend this house. Thanks for a lovely, healing time!
Lovely property in idyllic setting
We had a party of 8 staying and we had plenty of room. The dining room is very large and has ample cutlery etc. The pool is very good and clean and was used every day. The kitchen is slightly smaller but is sufficient. The only issue we found was the smell of the septic tank in the second week but this can be reduced by using the appropriate powders.
So good we have been two years in a row now!
Just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our holiday in your lovely home. The garden was excellently kept and the pool was 'divine' (quote from my mother). Everything was really close by and real consideration has clearly gone in to making people feel at home. The garage was a big plus as it was well stocked with everything we needed, and all your stuff was excellent quality. We had quite a large group and I was a bit concerned that we'd get in each others way but the house was large enough and well equipped enough to prevent this.
We enjoyed it so much we're already thinking about returning again next year! We should have run out of wine by then.
Thank you for the kind review. All feedback is always much appreciated. We hope to see you again for the third year in a row!
Perfect holiday home for a large group
Setting is impressive; house well equipped with plenty of toys to make the children feel right at home. Our party of six adults and two children stayed for a week. We had a fabulous time. Loads of outdoor space and a BBQ at hand made eating outdoors each night a must. Spacious common living areas and plenty of bedrooms for all. Kitchen was well equipped. James was really helpful in pre-preparations for our stay (thank you). Highly recommend this accommodation to large groups or families. A perfect holiday enjoyed immensely by all of us.
Calm and restful holidays
We stayed one week during half term summer holiday and it was perfect.
We were two families with a total of 7 children (9 months to 10 years old) and we had more than enough space. The grounds are beautiful and being able to relax in the garden, around the pool or swim was exactly what we needed. It is really quite at night and perfect to catch up on rest and sleep.
The children said: "There was a lot of space to play. The swimming pool was great fun. It is a perfect place to spend your summer holidays"
Comfort wise this was one of the best appointed house we have used.
We were so comfortable we did not visit enough our surroundings however there is a lot to do in the area.
I would definitely recommend it and go again.
Perfect for family holidays
We had a really lovely holiday, for a week in September. We were 2 families with young children and a couple. The house is the perfect place for a family holiday, well kitted out for young children with everything you could need. There was also lots of space for all the group not to be together at all times but perfectly organised for lots of big meals in the garden and dining room on the one night we had a little rain.
The proximity from the airport was really good as we arrived at different times so didn't have too far to travel to get to the house. Most days were spent around the pool and the table tennis and extra toys were a real bonus.
There's lots to do in the area, we went on a trip down the Dordogne in canadian canoes and visited a couple of Chateau's. This is the second time we have stayed in Le Chalet to stay and each time we have visited different places as there is no shortage of things to do.
I would definitely recommend it for a holiday and will hopefully be visiting again.
The house is on the rural edge of Bergerac itself, also bordering the village La Conne, and as such is 5 minutes by car into the centre of Bergerac, where you will find countless restaurants and a picturesque, busy old town of probably about 25,000 population.
It is 2km North of the Airport BUT since the runway is East-West, you cannot hear (all 5 per day) international flights landing or taking off. You get the best of both worlds with the proximity but not the noise.
The house is set in 3.6 hectares of private grounds including 150m of Dordogne river frontage.
It is also 5 minutes drive from a large Leclerc supermarket for all your shopping. There are other supermarkets nearby too. You can't walk to get bread unfortunately but it's very close by car (unless you persuade the miller opposite to make you some).
Other Activities: Canoeing, Boat Trips, Wine, Cooking and Art Courses, Pot Holing, Archery, all ages outdoor climbing centre in trees (3+yrs), walking, gastronomy
Golf: There is a 18 hole local golf course, details on request...
