Just returned from a really lovely stay at this gite. Bernard is a welcoming and friendly host and on hand should you require anything. We were lucky enough with the weather to be able to use the pool and the views really are stunning. The gite itself is clean, well equipped and supplied with plenty of towels. We were sad to leave but know we will return in the future.
Superb house in a wonderful setting.
My husband and I and two friends have just returned from a week at Le Coustelet This was a beautiful property in an idyllic setting overlooking the Dordogne countryside. All the facilities were of a high standard and we wanted for nothing. To come back after a day out and be able to sit by the lovely pool was an added bonus. The owner Bernard Brett was on hand should we need any help and was a very interesting man with a wealth of knowledge of the history of the area. I would thoroughly recommend this property as a base to explore the Dordogne.
Beautiful, tranquil setting; ideal for getting away from it all
Enjoyed a fantastic, relaxing break in this lovely property with stunning views. The house is well situated for visiting a range of sites in the Dordogne. Bernard was an excellent host, very helpful and a mine of information on the local area.
Second visit, just as good as the first.
We had a very relaxing two week holiday.Our highlights were Le roque gageac where we visited the bamboo forest and climbed up to the top of the cliffs from which we had some amazing views and St Cyprian which was beautifully decorated with thousands of paper flowers.We also visited the Grotte de Rouffignac which we all really enjoyed.
Thanks to Bernard for the tomatoes and figs and for providing such a lovely holiday home.
Lovely 2 weeks holiday in the Dordogne
We spent 2 wonderful weeks at this house. As others have mentioned the view from the house really is amazing and photographs aren't able to do it justice.
The house itself is well set up, and accommodated our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids (aged 5 and 12)), with the addition of a guest, very well. The kitchen is very well appointed, and easy to cook in. We also used the BBQ a lot. The living area is bigger than it looks in the photos and has a good sized seating area, both for eating and for watching TV/relaxing etc.
The pool is well maintained and was a good size for our purposes. We all spent a lot of time in it when at the house. The sun is on the pool area throughout the day, so it's ideal for sun bathing. There were enough sunbeds around the pool, with a sun shade should we require it.
There's swings in the garden and areas to stroll around the house. It's very well situated for sightseeing with lots of the historical places to visit and there are lots activities within easy reach. There's good restaurants and shops also, with a couple of very good patisseries.
Bernard was a brilliant host, extremely knowledgable of the area, and very helpful with everything. Nothing was too much trouble. He even gave our 5 year old son a ride on his tractor (which was one of the highlights of our sons visit).
We would like to come back to this house again.
A real find!
We spent a really amazing week at this house. As previous reviewers have said, the photographs do not, in any way, do it justice. The situation is so beautiful, with the pool set overlooking the scenic valley, in a wonderfully peaceful and private spot. It really exceeded our expectations.
The house is great - spacious, clean and well equipped. We are a family of six, with nearly grown up children, and we found the house a perfect size for us. The pool is a good size and spotlessly clean.
Bernard gave us a really warm welcome and was very helpful throughout. He struck exactly the right balance in being friendly and 'on hand', but allowing us our privacy.
The area is great, with lots to do - but we also enjoyed days lazing round the pool, playing table tennis or enjoying the really large garden.
All in all, a week to remember. Thank you.
