“The most relaxing holiday ever - so peaceful!”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

If you want to get away from it all, this is the place for you. Beautiful surroundings and wonderful hosts. Within easy reach of supermarkets and lovely little towns and villages, ready to explore. Bergerac is worth a visit, if you can tear yourself away from the peace and quiet.
We are a family of 4 generations (two octogenarians, two middle age, two thirties, one 11 year old and a small dog). This holiday catered for everyone, even my dad who is disabled had his own ground floor room with shower and toilet.
Fantastic night skies - take your telescope if you're interested in astronomy (I didn't and wished I had!)
Would definitely recommend this holiday.
Thank you Sue and Cath.

“Rustic charm in a beautiful, tranquil setting”
Reviewed 16 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We have just spent a thoroughly enjoyable week at Maison Arc-en-Ciel. It's the outside space that really sets this gite apart from the competition. The gardens are extensive and filled with lots of lovely spots - hammocks slung between trees, a shady gazebo, children's play area, outdoor dining area, a particularly large pool and even a hot tub.
The location is quiet and tranquil, a long way from any traffic, a perfect place to give the kids the freedom of the garden and really relax.
The house is charming, and while not luxurious has all that you need. The landing area upstairs gave the kids their own "den" too, which was appreciated by both adults and children!
Our hosts Sue and Cathy were absolutely great, we especially appreciated the early morning bakery deliveries. We took advantage of the dinner option on a couple of evenings too, and it's the perfect answer when travelling with younger children who don't enjoy the restaurant experience.
The layout is a little odd downstairs, as you need to go through the main shower room to get to one of the bedrooms (there is a door to the outside from this bedroom, so the occupant needn't feel trapped inside when someone is having a shower).
The wifi signal wasn't strong, we found we needed to sit outside in front of the house to pick it up. That said for us this was probably a benefit - we were able to check emails etc but it wasn't pinging into our inboxes all day long.
All in all we had a really great time and would certainly recommend it

“A lovely gite in a very picturesque location”
Reviewed 15 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Spent a week here, lovely for just 2 or great too for families with all that anyone could want catered for. Village nearby for great bread and small but comprehensive supermarket.
Centrally located within easy reach of St Emilion - a must to visit both day and night, Bergerac and Bordeaux to mention just a few.
The location is also good for golf, lovely walks etc.
Gite pretty and has every facility you could want. If you took children there is so much for them to do in the safe garden that am sure they would not be bored.
