Fabulous accommodation in a stunning location
A wonderful welcome from Evelyn and Bob after a long journey. The house was everything we expected and more, every possible need had been catered for. The weather was extremely hot upon our arrival and through the first week, and fans had been placed around the house in an effort to keep us cool. Our grandson loved the pool, and Evelyn and Bob reinflated his pool toys every morning for him. The house is stunningly placed in open countryside, but close enough to local towns/villages which offered differing amenities. All in all, a fantastic place to unwind and recharge the batteries.
Very warm and friendly welcome by Bob & Evelyn; well-appointed and excellent standard accommodation; beautiful views and easy access to numerous must-see sites & villages. Highly recommended.
Beautiful house in a stunning location - everything perfect!
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
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
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
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.
There is a blissful rural charm in the Gironde which makes it easy to enjoy life. Fruity reds and dry white wines are produced in the surrounding area - also famed for its luxurious sweet wines. Market days in Sainte-Foy-La-Grande are truly gastronomic affairs. The local specialities are proudly displayed amongst a medley of colourful fresh produce. Sit back and relax with a coffee and croissant and watch the world go by.
