The property and home are spectacular.
Beautiful, property, view and home. Best equipped home that we have stayed in. Enjoyed the heated pool. There is lots to do in the area. Hosts Luc and Alain are terrific. Really couldn't say more . It's a 5 Plus. We were 4 couples and we all enjoyed it immensely.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were warmly welcomed by the lovely father and mother of the owner (who live close by).
Local meats, fruits and vegetables were awaiting us on our arrival, along with a lovely bottle of Cote de Bergerac!
After a thorough briefing of all the essentials we were left to settle in and relax.
The location and the views were highlights, as was the fantastically well appointed (professional) kitchen.
Having spent the previous week in wonderful Provence we found the beautiful Oak forests a lovely variation in scenery and the infinity pool gave lots of opportunity to contemplate and chill.
A special mention for the excellent air conditioning system. You couldn’t hear it but you knew it was working away in the background - particularly useful in mid-30’s temperatures!
Finally I wanted to mention how kind the parents were again - after a brief but violent storm they arrived with a generator (luckily not needed) in case our electricity supply had been disrupted (apparently we were the only property in the area which was still running electricity)!
All in all a wonderful experience and we fully expect to return, if at all possible, next year.
Very nice place, quiet and private
Very attentive hosts. All the kitchen utensils you could wish for. The terrasse has a fantastic view and the pool area is very nice. Great with a some bread and food to start on when we arrived late.
A truly magnificent holiday in the Perigord Noir
My family and I had the most spectacular holiday at La Truffière. The house is very beautiful and has everything you could want.
There was eight of us in our group, five adults and three children and there was more than enough room so that we never felt on top of each other. The bedrooms are all very spacious and the living and kitchen area is big. Both the inside dining table and outside table fit all of us very comfortably around it.
The views from the bedrooms are beautiful over the valley and we ate most meals on the terrace so we could enjoy the magnificent view. The kids made great use of the heated pool and the gardens and surroundings are so beautiful. Everything is very well maintained both inside the house and out. We loved the fireplace and made us great use of it on the cool nights as well as those gorgeous baths!
The location of the house is excellent. It is close to lots of great little villages that have superb markets on different days of the week. Sarlat is only 30 minutes away too.
Thank you again for having us stay at your wonderful house, we loved every minute and the house certainly made our holiday so very special!
Stunning stay with all you could wish for
This property is absolutely beautiful. We arrived on a cloudy afternoon to be met by a warm welcome from the owners and an equally welcoming glow from the huge fireplace.
The gite has all you could ever want - a cook's dream, swimmers paradise and the rooms are lovely. Copious amounts of matching crockery, cutlery, linen and towels made every meal a pleasure.
The welcome pack of bread, cheese, milk, butter, yoghurt, meats, and a delicious bottle of wine was an unexpected bonus.
There were six of us adults staying and it was perfect. We did feel that if the other couple, who were originally going to come, had joined us they may have felt slightly less fortunate in the fourth bedroom, which is clearly a children's room, but this is fairly described in the information.
We could not fault this property and made use of all it had to offer - huge barbecue, delightful infinity pool (heated) and boules pitch which saw many a match on wine filled evenings!
Our only complaint was the weather which was unseasonably cool, wet and misty - but hey...... back to that gorgeous big fireplace and massive logs provided!!!!
La Truffiere is a French treasure 😀
This a fabulous house with no fault to be found.
We were greeted by the owners and shown around the property and everything explained to us. We were very thankful for the meats, cheese, bread, fruit, milk and wine that they provided for us - a feast for our arrival!
Coffee and tea (many varieties) were also available.
The bedrooms were extremely comfortable and the bathrooms beautiful.
The dining room and lounge are grand but homely. The outside spaces are comfortable and relaxing spaces whether for alfresco dining, sunbathing or watching the wildlife. Bird feeders were topped up during our stay which meant there was a constant stream of visiting birds to watch from the terrace.
The kitchen was stocked with every piece of equipment you could think of to whip up a snack or a 5 course meal.
The pool is lovely with comfortable loungers. There is even a pentanque court with lighting for evening competitions.
The owners also helped us by choosing a restaurant to celebrate our daughter's birthday. They also made sure we knew where to shop for food and wine in the town and to mention them.
We had an amazing fortnight and am sure we will be back.
The owners were previously hoteliers with a 2 star restaurant and you can tell when you stay at this marvellous home. The friendly owners, their attention to detail and quality of everything in the home made us feel relaxed from the moment we arrived and we had a great holiday.
Les Eyzies de Tayac, a prehistoric centre of culture, has been classed by the Unesco among world cultural heritage. You will find a collection of prehistorical evidence as well as world renowned archaeological and environmental sites in countryside where nature seems to attend to man's pleasure...The cave paintings of Lascaux, a unique presentation of prehistoric art, displays Cro-Magnon's life as hunter and artist, as warrior and painter, an inestimable insight not to be missed. The cave paintings of Lascaux are very near the luxurious and charming house of the Truffière. Thereby it will be extremely easy to go and visit those caves and museums. At the heart of the Périgord Noir is the fantastic medieval and historical town of Sarlat. With the highest number of classified historical buildings per square meter in Europe. Its colorful Saturday market is a must. Discover the pedestrian circuit through the old part of town at the tourist office, as it is such a pretty, romantic walk.
Other Activities: canoeing
