“Fantastic! Lovely relaxing week”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a fabulous time at La Matha, great base for exploring the area - particularly if you enjoy a bit of wine tasting!
We arrived after a very long drive a party of 4 adults and 3 children under 5 and immediately felt relaxed. The villa was so much bigger than I had imagined and the layout of the bedrooms meant that both families had their own space which was really nice. The kitchen was well equipped.The only problem with the villa was some interesting French plumbing with the lack of any decent water pressure to have a proper shower but a small niggle in an otherwise brilliant house.

A car is essential as it really is in the middle of nowhere but there are villages nearby where you can drive to visit the boulangerie for your daily fill of crossaints and baguettes as well as a well stocked supermarket (6km away). We also went to one of the many markets which you can buy all sorts of deliciousness! We settled on half a cows worth of steak and had a fabulous barbeque!

We hadn't really anticipated the number of steps in the property but the kids soon got used to all the different levels inside and thankfully there were no major disasters!! The outside area was excellent and really safe for the children with the gated pool area.

All in all a really great place to visit and I would definitely recommend.

Two 40+'s, one OAP and two children under 13. We flew in to Bordeaux, picked up our car and and within 1hr and 20 minutes, after a beautiful drive through the spectacular french countryside arrived at La Matha which is very easy to find. The property is way more delightful than the listing pictures. The main ground floor accommodation is a very french, comfortable, open plan living space with great fireplace and very well equipped kitchen including a wine chiller. Either of the downstairs bedrooms and bathroom were perfect for the older member of our party. There is also a large utility area off the kitchen with an array of bats, balls, additional garden furniture and even a hammock. Upstairs is really spacious, with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large mezzanine type landing. The en-suite off the master bedroom is particularly appealing, light and modern. Outside the alfresco dining area with superb BBQ is fantastic and 'sundowners' overlooking the vines are sublime with table and chairs to front of the house. Just around the corner is a pergola with a table tennis table, which was great fun for the whole family! The property sits on a large plot of land with no other buildings particularly close by. The established garden is safe for children and really good for hide and seek and bat and ball games. The piste de resistance is the heated pool, a generous size and not to cold for May.
We found Saint Foye de la Grande, about 15 minutes in the car to be the best place for shopping, everything and more there. Vineyards everywhere offering tastings and Bergerac is a very pretty place for an outing or to dine. La Matha is a very versatile property situated in a very peaceful setting and great for small or larger parties.
We genuinely hope to visit again. Big thumbs up to the owners who have been extremely helpful. Thank you!

“Fantastic house”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The house is beautiful, and so much bigger than in the photos, they do not do it justice! The area was secluded and peaceful, perfect for a relaxing week away. The garden was ideal for badminton, table tennis and petanque - luckily the weather was too (for the most part!). The heated pool was an added bonus, we were able to use it even when the weather was a little unkind.

Thank you Denis and Pip for your help before hand - the booking process was very easy, and the warm welcome to your house was appreciated! We would love to return in the future.
