Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much Sally & Richard for a most restful stay in your wonderful gite - everything we could wish for & more. We loved the area and will definately return & recommend you to our friends and family. Karen & Mark Norfolk

Quite simply the best gite we have stayed in, the glorious heatwave really allowed us to enjoy and make the most of the pool. We will miss the view wildlife & being able to see the stars through the velux window as we fall asleep. Thankyou Sally & Richard you were perfect hosts. We hope to visit again in the future. Kate & Rob S.Yorkshire

A beautiful little gite with all the touches of home to make it a great escape. A perfectly peaceful location for our honeymoon. Sally & Rich made us feel welcome from the moment we pulled up. Perfect weather to enjoy the garden with plenty of dips in the pool. Brantome is well worth a visit, a picturesque little town with good ice cream!!! Thanks Alice & Andrew N. Yorkshire

Wonderful well equipped holiday home

  • 5 of 5

This was without doubt the best equippedand comfortable gite we have ever stayed in. It lies in a very peaceful and beautiful location. If you are looking for a peaceful restful holiday this is the place. We were going to do lots of touristy things but the lure of the house,garden and pool was too much! You do need transport although the village is a walkable distance if you are fit. The décor of the house is beautiful, the bed comfy, plenty of storage space, huge selection of kitchen equipment, a big TV ( that we didn't use!) and a wonderful terrace where our evenings were spent . We were there for a rest and Sally and Richard were the perfect hosts....there if you needed them but very respectful of your privacy. We had a wee problem with the wifi not working but that was fixed by the time we left. All in all it is a wonderful place for a holiday and I have no hesitation in recommending it.

Remote & Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped gite in a fantastic location. Remote, but a bonus for us. Very friendly owners. We felt at home from the moment we arrived. Recommended: Visit St. Jean de Cole, Brantome. We needed more than the week that we had. Thankyou Sally & Richard.

Rural, idyllic detached gite with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

A gem of a 'gite' that is truly private. Lovely stone building, great internally with open plan living area, large bedroom and great large bathroom. Lovely terrace and garden with several places to sit/or lay and while away the hours. Overlooking fields the views are lovely.

We made good use of the bikes available. Enjoying the rural hilly surroundings. We included a daily stop off at the local excellent boulangerie/shop in the local village which was of a very high standard. This can be walked to in around 15 mins. The village now has a bar too. We enjoyed time at the gite and immediate surroundings but trips out- Brantome is a must to visit. Canoeing was great fun. Excideuil market was worth a wander we combined it with an afternoon in Perigueux.

Sally and Richard were very helpful and friendly during our stay but also respected our privacy. We enjoyed daily visits from the cats and dog. They only hang around if you encourage them- which we did! I made great friends with Puzzle. The animals only added to our stay.

Wonderful gite and lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd time back to this gite. Sally and Richard are great owners. The location is great(you do need a car that's the fun of going out and about). The views are wonderful and some nice walks. The gite is just like the photos, clean. Another perfect holiday at Le Suquet. Waiting for my 4th visit.

Must visit Brantome, Bourdeilles and Donne.

Big thank you again Sally and Richard
