My sister and I stayed at the house in Saint Meard du Gurcon with our families for a week in August and loved it!
The house is a big, beautiful 'very French' property which is clearly very well loved, well maintained and has been in the family for years, adorned with many items of antique family furniture, pictures and decoration.
In the time spent at the house there was plenty of room for the eight of us to move around and have our own space when we wanted it - there were so many different areas to sit outside and relax in the sun!
We all had a wonderful stay and Brigitte was the perfect host - a welcome basket of local goods were provided on arrival and she had a genuine interest in our wellbeing and ensuring that we enjoyed the perfect stay - she 'checked-in' with us on a couple of occasions to ensure that everything was OK, never intrusive, but always very friendly and helpful.
The house was comprehensively equipped with everything we could have needed and the pool was perfect for the children to play in for hours. The village was small, but had a bakery, restaurant and small grocery store. We were also provided with plenty of information on what was available nearby and had plenty to do whilst we were there - I would thoroughly recommend the Bucket's Auberge Inn restaurant a few minutes up the road in Montazeau for excellent food at a good price; Canoeing at Kayak Port Ste Foy for a variety of options to canoe along the Dordogne; and finally the Chateau de Bridoire for an excellent place to visit with children with plenty of mediaeval games to participate in and a really interactive experience in a wonderful castle and its grounds...
I would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone who wants and authentic French Property to stay in, it is very beautiful, well equipped and with plenty to do and see nearby - thank you Brigitte, we had a fabulous time!
Great family holiday house
This lovely old house with private pool and garden yet conveniently near small shops in picturesque village ticked most of our holiday needs' boxes. The owner was caring and friendly without being intrusive. The picturesque bastide towns of this region provided great markets as well as historic architecture and the empty roads are a pleasure to drive on. Great restaurants are within easy reach, and Bergerac airport is within easy reach. A great family holiday.
We had a great time in St. Meard de Gurcon. The house is amazing. We were 2 families of four and had tons of room. The house is equipped for dozens of people. Two outdoor dining areas as well as a huge kitchen table. "American" size appliances. The kids and adults swam many times a day, and the kids loved the trampoline and other games. Every day we did a trip somewhere fun- Sarlat, Chateau Bridoire, a ropes course, etc. It is a wonderful region. We ate in a lot, mostly because of our numbers and the well equipped kitchen. Loved the bakery a few steps away. Also Brigitte was a great host, spent a lot of time helping us with grocery stores, rental car, trip ideas. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
Magnificent family-friendly holiday home
Grandparents, children and grandchildren of 3 to 14 years, 10 in total, stayed with delight in this beautifully maintained, lovingly restored and tastefully furnished classic country house with all facilities inside and outside. We share the enthusiasm of the previous guests for the owners warm welcome, which also consisted of a nice basket of regional products and refreshments in the fridge. We have enjoyed keeping household with French commodities in these tranquil and beautiful surroundings. Bigger and smaller excursions of course require a car, but there is also a lot to see.
It was two wonderful weeks for all of us.
Un grand Merci de Vera et Christian Michelsen et toute la famille de Danemark

Vi har i mange år haft familietræf i lejet hus i Frankrig. I år var det nok det flotteste, hvor vi fornøjede os med husholdning (skønne franske råvarer!) i rolige og smukke omgivelser og med herlige udflugter til øst og vest. Der er nok at se, men det kræver en bil.
Alt svarede rigeligt til forventningerne. Værtindens hjertelige velkomst, som også indeholdt en flot kurv med regionale produkter og forfriskninger i køleskabet, var overvældende. To gange rengøring om ugen var en overraskelse.
Det blev to vidunderlige uger for os alle.
Superbe ! Une semaine de rêve !
Très belle maison et très bel accueil.
Nous étions 2 familles avec des enfants de 2 à 10 ans et nous avons été enchantés ! Nous avons eu le plaisir de trouver une maison magnifique, décorée avec goût et agréable à vivre.
La propriétaire a été très accueillante et a vraiment fait de son mieux pour que nous passions un très beau séjour. La maison est très bien équipée, le jardin est magnifique, belle piscine (et chaude lors de notre séjour), beau trampoline...
Bref une semaine de vacances dont nous gardons un très joli souvenir.
Encore merci pour ces très bons moments !
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette belle maison de caractère, par ailleurs confortable et bien équipée, ce qui ne gâte rien à un accueil très chaleureux de sa propriétaire. À recommander tout particulièrement.
Ideally located between the main touristy areas of Périgord (Bergerac is min away, Périgueux is 45mn away, Sarlat 1h30) and of the large vineyards of Bordeaux (Saint Emilion, Pomerol 30min away, Médoc 1h30 away). The ocean and Arcachon bay 2 hours away.
