Idyllic and peaceful surrouding in great location

  • 3 of 5

Gites and grounds lovely and great location. Marc is usually a pleasant and welcoming host. But ...

The listing says 2 bdrms & 2 bthms. Only 1 bdrm in each gite has a door. One gite has 2 bthrms, the others 1.5. We were asked to sign the contract and initial pages of the Ts & Cs. The latter was not attached to the email. I asked about this but Marc misunderstood and didn’t send the missing file.

We flew to Bordeaux and rented a car. We stopped briefly to collect groceries for breakfast and arrived 1.5 hours late, but had sent a text to let Marc know. On arrival he was polite but unhappy. He was going out and we had delayed him, for which we apologised. We soon realised that the ‘warm meal on arrival’ stated in his listing was not being offered, but were grateful for the bottle of wine (also in the listing). We noticed there were no towels or linen which the listing said were provided. Marc said we were mistaken, but they were available for 15 Euro per person. We assumed the mistake was ours & agreed.

In the morning we discovered the website said linen was provided. We went to Marc to pay our bill and showed him the listing. He said it was a mistake. We asked about the ‘warm dinner on arrival’. He apologised for that mistake and said he understood that we might be disappointed. He asked for a security bond of 700 Euros and cleaning bond of 70 Euros. We were surprised and apologised for not having it with us, and not remembering it. He was not happy. We said we would get cash that day and he agreed. The conversation returned to the linen, the contract and the Ts & Cs. We asked for a copy & realised we hadn’t seen it before so didn’t know about the bond, the linen fee, and cleaning the gite. Marc clearly blamed me for the mistake. It took an unpleasant 1.5 hours before we could escape.

Marc gave us a few eggs from his chickens and a nice gift on departure. Every time we saw Marc he discussed the ‘linen’ mistake. The gites are listed on several sites. On the homeaway site a week later it remains unchanged. On our departure, after he inspected the gite for damage and cleanliness, he refunded our bond and again asked if we would pay for the linen. The answer was ‘no’. Marc thinks we owe him 60 Euros. We paid 100 Euros (for a meal out) and did 70 Euros worth of cleaning - neither expected.

This is the first time I’ve given a less than positive review for accommodation. I recommend a stay at La Mouynarie, as long as you are clear about the costs and services

Trop bien

  • 5 of 5

Après 1000 km, on arrive a destination et on entre dans une propriété........... magnifique, très bien entretenue avec des bâtiments typiques de la région. On découvre le gîte qui est ......... propre , bien équipé et décoré avec goût.

Le propriétaire: c'est Marc.

Et Marc est accueillant, chaleureux, attentionné et présent tout en étant discret.

Nous avons passés de superbes vacances avec nos deux enfants dans cette région.(visites , activités, gastronomie....).

En bref:

A la Mouynarie , vous rencontrerez une belle personne dans une belle demeure au sein d'une belle région pour de très belles vacances.

Merveilleuses vacances

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine inoubliable au Gite La Mouynarie, propriété nichée au cœur de la forêt périgourdine et très bien située entre Sarlat, Les Eyzies, la vallée de la Dordogne et la Vézère.

Calme, détente et nature étaient au rendez-vous dans un gite à l'architecture authentique. La décoration est faite avec goût, l'accueil est chaleureux et personnalisé avec Marc Huygh, toujours disponible pour chacune de nos demandes et de bons conseils pour la découverte de la région.

La propriété est parfaitement entretenue, la piscine est très agréable et a été très appréciée de nos enfants!

Nous reviendrons à La Mouynarie pour poursuivre notre découverte du Périgord!

Merveilleux / Grossartig

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten eine Woche in Oktober in diesem wunderschönen Ferienhaus bei Marc Huygh. Obwohl es schon recht kühl war, war es im Hause angenehm warm. Das Haus „Les Morilles“ ist das mittlere der drei Ferienhäuser. Es ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und es fehlt an nichts. Die Farben und Textilien in diesem Haus sind sehr harmonisch auf einander abgestimmt.

Der Vermieter wohnt unweit im Hauptgebäude und war stets sehr hilfsbereit. Zu unserer Überraschung fanden wir zweimal auf der kleinen Bank vor unserem Haus einen Teller voll mit selbstgepflügten Feigen und Trauben aus seinem Garten.

Wir haben schon mehrere Male Ferien in der Dordogne verbracht. La Moynarie liegt absolut günstig um viele Sehenswürdigkeiten zu besuchen. Beim nächsten Mal würden wir sofort wieder diesen Ort wählen.

Merci beaucoup Marc!

Séjour de rêve

  • 5 of 5

La Mouynarie est vraiment un endroit exceptionnel, de par ses pierres, sa lumière, la forêt qui l'entoure, son calme, sans oublier l'accueil extrêmement chaleureux de notre hôte Marc! La configuration des gîtes, la piscine, les divers jeux à disposition sont vraiment l'idéal pour petits et grands. Bref, la Mouynarie réunit tous les critères pour passer un excellent séjour ressourçant, en plein coeur d'une région si riche en histoire!

Herzlicher Empfang durch den Gastgeber Marc incl. eines kompletten Abendessens im Kühlschrank. Tolles ortstypisches Haus mit Sonnenterrasse und vollständiger Ausstattung mitten im Grünen. Gepflegter Pool zum Erfrischen nach vielseitigen Ausflugsmöglichkeiten. Rundum empfehlenswert!
