Staying at La Retreat in the Porcharie which was above and beyond our expectations was a special time for us, relaxing peaceful beautiful views in the garden looking over the swimming pool for miles and miles of wonderful countryside. The owners Kim and Red made us feel very welcome and even shared a glass of wine with us . We will be back. Michael and Lesley
We have visited France on many occasions but never to the Dordogne region bordering with Limousine. As we drove into the drive we recognise The Porcherie from the pictures. Instantly thought the pictures hadn’t done it justice, as it looked and felt bigger than we were expecting in a pretty quiet setting.
Our hosts Red and Kim were friendly, welcoming and very attentive. Worked tirelessly in the background to ensure everything was immaculate, especially the pool and bar area which was really appreciated.
The living space was a good size and decorated at a very high standard. The fitted kitchen had everything we needed to make us feel at home.
The bedroom sits on the mezzanine floor upstairs next to the bathroom and is light and spacious. We enjoyed lightning the BBQ on a private seated area outside including a patio area to enjoy our lunch.
The local town a couple of miles away is quaint with plenty of places to buy food or have a drink. Just make a note of the opening times as they seem to close at random times.
An hour away we found some fantastic places to visit including Périgueux, Brantome and Segur le Château.
Overall a lovely relaxing week and would absolutely recommend this hidden gem.
La Porcherie is set in secluded gardens amidst rolling farmland. Picture postcard exterior and highly finished interior. Spotlessly clean swimming pool and honesty bar.
Perfect hosts who are invisible until you need anything.
The location and facilities were amazing! The gite was tastefully renovated and decorated, it was very comfortable and provided us with everything we needed for a very enjoyable stay. The setting was perfect, very peaceful and yet all of the amenities we required were a short car journey away, Redford and Kim were fantastic hosts and we look forward to staying there again,
