Beautiful house in a stunning location - everything perfect!

  • 5 of 5

So much love and attention to detail has gone into this house! - Bob and Evelyn were so welcoming and had ensured that the house and surrounding gardens were absolutely perfect. Our favourite thing to do is to visit the local food markets and prepare meals with locally sourced produce - this was an absolute pleasure here as the kitchen was so well equipped - it was obvious that Evelyn was a talented chef who knew the importance of well thought out kitchen! We loved eating on the terrace looking out over the beautiful gardens - so relaxing. The house was beautifully decorated with lots of attention to detail - plenty of towels, tea towels, crockery etc as well as comfortable beds. Bob and Evelyn were on hand if we had any queries and had lots of information about the local area - recommending restaurants etc. Absolutely wonderful - we hope to visit again very soon - thank you for a very special holiday.

A wonderful place to relax, feel at home and enjoy the beauty of the Dordogne and Bordeaux

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful and what really made the stay great was how welcoming Evelyn and Bob were. The location is great with access to the many beautiful sites the region had to offer. We visited Lascaux II, Domme, Bergerac and a long bike ride through beautiful terrain ... a bit hilly but we all survived it. We took advantage of Evelyn's menu options and enjoyed a wonderful meal at home. Our original plan was to get to Sarlat but after a lazy morning, it was a bit far. We would strongly recommend Petit Nivelle for a family or 3 couples. There was lots of space to get away and for privacy. Our thanks to Angela, Evelyn and Bob

Simply stunning

  • 5 of 5

We've been staying in rental properties across France & Italy every summer now for 8 years and without doubt this was the best. The house is huge and expertly designed and laid out. The pictures don't really do it justice! I love to cook and the kitchen really is a cooks dream with a range cooker, all manner of appliances & equipment, herbs & spices, olive oil etc. all provided. The three bedrooms are all very spacious as are the three bathrooms. Everything has been thought of - games for the whole family, books, a trampoline, 5 bikes, water squirters (our boys loved these!), boules, swings and more. The garden is beautiful and very peaceful with a stunning view of the surrounding countryside. Lots of spaces to sit outside both at the front of the property and at the back. All in all, a wonderful space and we would love to pick the house up and take it home with us!!

Quiet and Relaxing in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property, beautifully restored by Evelyn and Bob. Very well equipped and comfortable. The grandchildren particularly liked the well equipped playhouse and the pool.

The view from our bedroom in the morning, lawn then hay meadow (with the occasional deer), vineyards and woods, was a joy.

Evelyn and Bob, caretakers next door, were unobtrusive, but friendly and helpful hosts.

'Beautiful place, you will not be disappointed'

  • 5 of 5

A fantastically appointed property with stunning views across the vineyards and top quality fixtures. Very quiet and private but only a 10 minute drive to the local town / supermarket where you can get everything. The house is spotlessly clean and has everything you could ever need provided, it really is just like Home Away. The photos are just as the property is, no trick photography, it is as you see it. There is lots & lots of space both inside and out, the garden is massive and has loads of things to keep all occupied if spending a day at the house . A brilliant pool that is so clean and maintained everyday, kept us entertained as well as cooling off in the summer sun. Bob & Evelyn ( property managers & lovely people ) live next door, however, you would not know this as the divide is very private but they are there if anything is ever needed. A beautiful place that will not disappoint, thank you for a lovely holiday.

Another great 2 week break

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Petit Neville and it was lovely to know that everything would be perfect! This is a rare find in that nothing about the property disappoints. The interior is stylish, well finished and spacious. The kitchen is 100% better equipped than ours at home! The outside areas allow the kids to have fun and still allow adults quiet time with a book.

We sampled the 14Euro menu de jour in Gensac at the Paix and Gensake, both of which were great value and fun. Although Irish Jenny at the Gensake probably nailed it best! We also loved L'imparfait in Bergerac.

And of course the wine from Fredo's vineyard, visible from the terrace.

Evelyn and Bob as ever were a great help and fantastic hosts and made our stay a warm and welcoming one.
