We have just returned from a weeks stay here and wow what a beautiful place! The gite is gorgeous, spotlessly clean and has all the provisions you could possibly need. The decked area, complete with BBQ, table and chairs and swimming pool was lovely and we spent much of our time out there, enjoying the lovely views across the vineyards.
Our 2 year old daughter loved going swimming every day and had named the place 'daddy's house' by the end of the holiday! She enjoyed playing in the shaded sand pit and rummaging through the toys in the games room and selecting which bucket and spade to use!
We found the layout of the gite very practical and perfect for our requirements, especially with it all being on one level, which is very important with a lively toddler!
It's a lovely remote setting which offered plenty of privacy during our stay, however there is a supermarket only about 5 mins drive away in Gardonne so you don't feel you are too cut off or far away from any essentials you msg need.
We would highly recommend Les Marais and in particular L'Atelier, the gite we stayed in, although the other two gites were also beautiful.
We had an amazing holiday and would love to return someday to create more memories.
We stayed at L'Atelier for one week in May and had a fantastic time. L' Atelier is a comfortable, beautifully presented, very well equipped property with stunning countryside views. The property provided all the facilities and conveniences we needed; including a barbecue, pool, TV, washing machine and dishwasher. The outside space was a lovely area in which to relax in the peace and quiet and enjoy the beautiful scenery. We hired a car for the week, picking it up on arrival at Bergerac Airport. The journey from the Airport to Les Marais was an easy 15 minutes, passing a supermarket on the way. This was our first visit to the Dordogne and we loved it. We discovered beautiful countryside walks and the picturesque Dordogne river where we enjoyed a lovely boat trip. We found many birds and butterflies during our week. This was a very relaxing holiday in a beautiful location.
