Charles Peace purchased this House in 2014
Why Charles Peace chose Saint-Sernin
We love to hear what our guests have discovered about this lovely area. Each visitor finds something unique for them. For us, a perfect day would be a trip to one of the nearby markets to sample and buy delicious fresh local produce, perhaps a prix fixe lunch at one of the many family-run restaurants in the area, followed by a lazy afternoon round the pool and then an evening walk through the vines with the dog where we are almost certain to see deer, hares and other wildlife and amazing sunsets which give way to the most beautiful starry nights.
What makes this House unique
Le Chat de Pierre is a very special place. The house is spacious and cool when the temperatures rise and is furnished with an eclectic mix of modern and vintage pieces with a twist on traditional French styling. The accent is on comfort and good design - it's your home away from home. Guests have commented on the 'boutique hotel' touches - lovely crisp white bedding, top quality beds - including an emperor sized four-poster in the master bedroom. The hosts have tried to provide everything you could possibly need. The decked terrace makes for lovely al fresco dining with views across the valley. Deer frequently visit the field at the bottom of the garden. Lying by the pool, listening to birdsong and crickets, it's hard to summon up the will to move away but when the surrounding area offers so much history, culture, sport, exploring, shopping, dining and wine tasting you may just need to book another week.

First-class gite. Everything there that you could possibly need. Very clean.
A wonderful holiday thanks to the extraordinary attention to detail in the gite. Everything had been thought of and we cannot fault it. We will be back asap.
Lovely Gite, Wonderful Holiday
Just finished our visit and what a lovely time we have had. The gite was superb. Set in a lovely location, not far from Saint-Sernin, the gite had everything you could require. Well equipped kitchen with all utensils, comfortable lounge area with TV, DVD, satellite box, internet, barbeque outside, parasols etc. We were also impressed by the number of pool towels that were provided.
We have stayed in France for the last three years and all the gites have been great but this was the best. Nothing at all to complain about.
The owners Charles and Carolyn were very helpful and responded very quickly when we contacted them. I would thoroughly recommend this property. It is lovely.
The surrounding area is great too with lovely towns and countryside areas to visit.
The gite and pool were fabulous...the area was peaceful and relaxing.
Would recommend this property to friends and family. If you need a relaxing break with nice villages and countryside to see....this is the place. Owners are lovely and gite provided everything one needs. Thank you...
Le Chat Pierre Half Term Holiday
A charming, beautiful house in a lovely peaceful location and far larger than we expected. Brilliantly equipped and well thought out. The house was ours for the week with no interruptions (but with the knowledge that the owners were on hand if we needed them.) Bliss. We received fantastic notes from the owners before our stay detailing everything about the property, local markets , check in details etc all covered. The house was spotless when we arrived. We will be booking again as the house and the area are gorgeous. Loads to do on rainy days ( reading, table football, DVDs) and when the sun was out it was great to be by the pool and in the garden which was totally private.
What a great place
Le Chat is a fabulous house in a quiet, tranquil spot, yet only a short drive from Duras. The house has everything you could possibly need, it is extremely comfortable, has a great pool. The owners, Charles & Carolyn, have put a great deal of thought into the property to ensure you have a fantastic holiday. Would definitely recommend it.
Thank you Gail - we are so glad you had a nice time and we are looking forward to seeing you again next summer!
Superb house, beautifully equiped. Didn't want to leave.
Set in beautiful countryside, this charming house with pool is a perfect holiday home. It is superbly equipped for a large party, especially the kitchen which is a joy to use by enthusiastic cooks. There is a lot of space in the house and grounds for people to go off and "do their own thing" if they want to. There were plenty of towels available for ordinary and pool use, which is always a bonus. We really cannot fault the property and there is so much to see and do in the locality. We hope that we shall be able to return.
Thank you Shirely, we are glad you all had a lovely time together. We always wanted Le Chat to be somewhere family and friends could come together and enjoy themselves and are pleased you took advantage of all the house and the area has to offer. We'd love to welcome you back, there is plenty to do in this beautiful part of the world.
Le Chat de Pierre is in wine country and all the local vineyards - your nearest across the road - offer tours and tasting and sales direct from the producer.
The area is made for walking and cycling - and swimming at the local bathing lakes, golf, horse-riding and canoeing at nearby Sainte Foy la Grande (which also holds one of the biggest street markets in France).
A wealth of lovely Bastide towns are within a half hour's drive with shops, restaurants, bars, vibrant markets and exciting night markets, Nearby Duras has a well preserved chateau which makes for a fascinating half day's visit.
Medieval Bergerac is a 40 minute drive and a little beyond that is beautiful UNESCO world heritage site, Saint Emilion which is a must-see.
