“IDYLLIC”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at this idyllic place, Phil and Tracy have created lovely, comfortable and spotlessly clean accommodation, every need is catered for and to top it off you have the use of a beautiful heated pool with views of the surrounding fields and countryside. The kids were in the pool constantly and if the weather turned, it mattered not as the pool was lovely and warm, the kids also enjoyed the games room and swing set. There is lots to do in the area, lots of places to visit and La Chatre nearby has shops and restaurants aplenty. This is a beautiful part of the World, unspoilt and friendly. Phil was on hand if anything was needed and to offer advice on places to visit, directions and places to eat. We will be returning at some point and all agreed it was one of our most enjoyable and relaxing breaks, well worth the journey and great value for money.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We booked La Porcherie as we were visiting my parents who were staying locally. It was a flying visit of 3 days, which before we arrived seemed just the right amount of time for a little break. As soon as we arrived at La Porcherie however, we instantly regretted we hadn't booked longer. The house, pool and all that comes with it ....is absolutely immaculate. I had read previous reviews that said the house was clean and it was this that ' clinched the deal ' for me .... we weren't disappointed. We had an evening flight into Limoges so by the time we arrived it was dark....we usually hate arriving in the dark to french gites as they can be quite cold and bleak. But our first sight was of a lovely welcoming home and garden all lit up and sparkling. The pool was glistening and we could see the heat rising from it ( Phil had it all ready in case we fancied a moonlight swim...we did!!!). Phil had also lit the woodburner and put on the heating so it really was very cosy. He quickly showed us the necessary and left us to it. Our 18 year old daughter went straight in the pool and we got ready to enjoy the cheese and wine kindly provided in the welcome pack. Phil and Tracy have a winning formula, they are there if you need them but respect your privacy and allow you to use La porcherie as you would your own home. Everything is provided to make your arrival comfortable..... The welcome pack is perfect, even fresh croissants for breakfast, lots of hot water, fluffy towels and toilet roll. Unfortunately we didn't get to use the gym/games room but it is fantastic. The view from the terrace is lovely. You feel completely relaxed as soon as you arrive. We will definitely come again. I have already recommended it to my sister and young family, and also our parents. Although the house is great for families it's also perfect for couples out of season as the pool is heated from April to November and it is so cozy. Thanks again Phil and Tracy for providing us with a perfect few days in a beautiful area of France.

“One of he best holidays we have ever had.”
Reviewed 29 September 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Fantastic gite. Clean and with everything that we needed. Spent a lot of time round the pool as the weather was so good. It was great having the owners to hand, especially when making reservations at restaurants. A beautiful area with lots to see and do. You couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay than La Porcherie.
