“A beautiful gite in a beautiful location - fantastic for a week of private relaxation”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We arrived at Gite Borie Bonaguil to a warm welcome from Karen & Andy and were instantly thrilled to have picked such a lovely holiday home for the week. The gite is beautifully finished inside and out and the outdoor living areas are ideal for small children and animals, being secure and having shaded areas for small ones throughout sunny days. Not that it mattered greatly, as the gite is at the end of a peaceful lane giving direct access to woodland walks.
Albeit the intention was to travel around the area visiting the many tourist attractions, we found we spent much of the time relaxing around the lovely private pool, which was warm enough to swim even in June. Evenings were spent doing much of the same on the covered patio area overlooking the valley.
Without doubt we'd recommend this gite to family and friends and we hope to travel down again next year.
Many thanks to Karen & Andy for being perfect hosts.
Best Wishes, Craig, Danielle, George and Radley.

“Peace and Tranquility!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We cannot speak highly enough of Gite Borie. The high standard of the gite and the fantastic location in addition to perfect hosts Andy &Karen made this a holiday to remember. The location of the gite gives you a feeling of being far removed from civilisation and yet only a 10 minute drive from the nearest supermarkets. There are great restaurants nearby and fantastic bastide villages. Nothing was too much trouble for Andy & Karen - they were always at hand when we needed them and made us feel extremely welcome. We shall miss sitting on the terrace in the evening and watching the horses in the fields below and we shall of course miss Dillon and Henry the two dogs who would come visit most days. We would highly recommend the property to anyone - it was fantastic!!

“A Wonderful Holiday just Chilling”
Reviewed 30 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Lovely weather, lovely swimming in the pool and barbecues every night. Breakfast on the patio every morning. Karen and Andy were brilliant hosts yet again, who we know previously from staying at their B&B in North Devon. Last year was the first time we visited them in France with more members of the family, but this year the weather was even better and as always Karen and Andy were very welcoming and helpful if we needed anything or any advice. The gite is spotlessly clean, as is the swimming pool. The two dogs are very friendly and absolutely no trouble. It was also lovely to see the horses in the field, happy and galloping around together. There are plenty of places to visit, e.g. chateaux, markets, vineyards, but if a quiet relaxing holiday is what you want, then this is certainly the place to come. We look forward to seeing Karen and Andy again soon, hopefully next year. Thank you for another lovely and most enjoyable week. Best wishes to you both, Ian and Anne.

“Happy Children = Holiday for Parents”
Reviewed 29 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Our second stay at Borie, and just as good as the first. For those who don't know the area, Lot Valley is roughly 40 miles south of 'Dordogne'shire', so has a similar landscape and climate, but without the hoards; much quieter but still plenty to do.

Karen and Andy were once again the perfect hosts, and the second time around, it felt more like visiting old friends; but still with very much our own personal space, and what a big space too! Our children pretty much lived in the pool, but were also excited to see some interesting wildlife, which included Wild boar, Deer and lots of birds of prey. If you wanted to stay connected to the outside world, the Gite now has WiF.

I'd recommend Borie to anyone seeking a relaxed and peaceful holiday, with local culture thrown in....find a local restaurant and you can pretty much guarantee the Menu de Jour will be top notch. What more can we say, this place doesn't get 5 stars from all reviewers without a good reason; thanks for another great holiday
