Mallegale Haute family stay
We stayed 8 nights at Mallegale Haute as a family of four with two adults and a ten and one year old.
Upon arrival we were met by the friendly Anna who showed and explained everything to us clearly and made us feel very welcome. Her English is superb too (even if she doesn’t think so).
We were blown away by the beauty of the accommodation especially the grounds of the property. There’s a massive heated pool, games area and even a play area for smaller kids with a sandbox and swings. Plenty of sun loungers, a bbq and beautiful outdoor eating area top off the outdoor space.
Inside there is a fully equipped kitchen with everything you could possibly need and Anna kindly welcomed us with some delicious local goodies including wine, bread, jam, fois grois as well as house eggs. There is also a wonderful laundry area with washing machine, dryer and ironing facilities which we really appreciated and used frequently.
The house is clean with lovely wooden shutters on all of the doors and windows that can make for a nice sleep in. We also noticed that no matter how hot it got outside the house always stayed cool.
The pool is maintained by Anna’s husband who came on the mornings discreetly. We never heard or saw him and on our first morning found fresh croissants and bread waiting for us on our doorstep which was just so sweet of them.
The house’s location is magnificent. Sarlat town centre is a few minute drive or a few more minutes walk. There is a casino supermarket pretty much at the end of the road where you can find anything you may wish to cook in the well equipped kitchen and there are several other supermarkets around town, we also visited the Lidl. The town centre is just gorgeous with beautiful old architecture and lots of alfresco dining and retail opportunities. The surroundings are also wonderful with the river offering water activities, beautiful castles to explore and interesting caves just to name a few things.
Overall as a family we had the best experience so far of our holidays. We didn’t want to leave and hope one day we can return. Anna’s little gift for our boys on departure just topped off our stay completely. I would definitely recommend this accommodation and area, especially for families, but really for anyone.
Thank you Anna 😊�
Best/Magnificent Sarlat Vacation Home!
This holiday home exceeded our expectations in every regard. First, let me share that Anna is a wonderful lady who greeted us in a most generous fashion- a wonderful loaf of bread, a bag of delicious local walnuts, and other nice surprises! She made us feel more like guests than renters. Anna spoke enough English to swiftly and effectively "orient" us to the vacation property (many European appliances can be "tricky" to figure out, for the uninitiated).
Our party of 2 couples was comprised of "foodies" and the kitchen was phenomenally equipped to meet our needs. Yes, we cooked many meals here, including some fabulous beef on one of 2 outdoor charcoal grills.
The accommodations are first class- very comfortable beds, plenty of room to dine indoors or out; and the pool was a hit on 2 days that reached nearly 90 degrees.
Anna takes great pride in this home- maintaining the gardens, home, and pool meticulously. Several mornings I woke up early (before 7AM) and a gentleman was silently going about his business of sweeping and maintaining the pool. Another morning, a fellow came and sprayed the roses (which are simply beautiful).
Finally, the location of this home was absolutely ideal. 2 blocks to a complete grocery store with nice wines and a full selection of beer; along with anything you might need to prepare pretty outrageous meals. Only 5 minutes to the very enchanting and historic medieval town of Sarlat (with awesome cafes and restaurants); and a 25 minute drive to see amazing castes & cliff dwellings, as well as cave art dating to 14,000 years ago!
We had spent several days in Dublin, then in Paris prior to taking a train to Brive, and then a rental car (45 minutes drive) to Sarlat.
I encourage you to avail yourself of this idyllic rental; and recommend it highly!
Demeure très bien située pour le tourisme.
L'ensemble des installations disponibles est de très bonne qualité.
Les propriétaires, très sympathiques et toujours disponibles ont vraiment pensé à tout. Outre la piscine, il y a babyfoot, table de ping pong, balançoires, petites tables pour les enfants, etc...
Le jardin est de toute beauté.
Une seule petite réserve, nous aurions apprécié quelques degrés de plus dans la piscine.
