We have just spent a lovely week at Pehillo with our 5 year old daughter. The gite is not only well furnished and equipped with everything you might need but it has real character : stone walls, a lovely patio area with a table and fully equipped BBQ and is fully private from next door. The location is super - within own woods with hares, deers and squirrels and surrounded by farmland of fields of sunflowers and yet the 'royal" town of Nerac is but 4km away for daily croissants and pains au chocolat. This was a pleasant surprise as we had booked on the strength of the gite itself but Nerac is a lovely French town with a rich history having played an important role in the life of Henry of Navarre who became Henri IV of France. Other villages around were a delight - easy , stress free sightseeing or attending the markets or local restaurants. Our daughter delighted in the excellent swimming pool and the chance to meet another family next door as well as the nature walks and the night walk when we heard a Long eared owl at close quarters. Sonia and Michel have obviously put a lot of work into making this a memorable and easy place to stay - welcome drinks on the first night set the holiday off perfectly and always on hand for local advice if needed. Highly recommended.
It is not easy to find good accommodation for 2 people and a dog but this cottage ticks all the boxes. The rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated, a very well equipped kitchen, stylish bathroom and overall a very homely feel. Although attached to the main house the charming owners, Jonathan and Isobel, are totally discreet, respect your privacy but are on hand should you wish to make use of their wealth of information on the area. Situated in the midst of farmland, the cottage ensures rest and relaxation but the vibrant market town of Nerac is just 8mins drive or 35 mins walk away. We had a wonderful holiday. Thank you Jonathan and Isabel, we will definitely return. For the sun lovers amongst us a sun lounger might be nice. Jane and Mike July 2018.
