“Idyllic peaceful haven”
Reviewed 7 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had the most wonderful month in this beautiful historic property.
It was ideally located to enjoy the many sites of the area, while enjoying the peace of the pretty small hamlet.
It has a wonderful well-maintained outdoor area and a lovely spacious interior. It is very well equipped.
It was made even better by the incredible hospitality of the owner's parents. Maurice was always on hand and happy to help. We thoroughly enjoyed the delicious vegetables that were offered from their garden.
Many thanks for a very memorable stay and for taking such good care of us.

“Amazing week in La Doinie!”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I have just returned from a wonderful week in La Doinie. The villa was much bigger than expected and was well equipped to handle our party (five people). There were lots of different out door and indoor seating options and the built in bbq was great.
The view from the villa, and particularly the pool area was beautiful. The pool is not heated, however this was not a problem for us as we had warm weather all week.
The local village of St Genies was a very busy little spot. We particularly enjoyed the Sunday morning and Wednesday evening markets.
Our hosts were wonderful, and checked in on us from time to time, and overall made sure our stay was very enjoyable.

Overall we had an excellent week here and I would definitely return if staying in the area again!

“Outstanding, the best we have stayed in in France!”
Reviewed 16 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

What a wonderful house, full of character yet with every modern convenience. Delightful owners who can't do enough for you but are unobtrusive. Very good pool, cleaned everyday and delightful grounds. already considering our next trip.Surrounded by many restaurants all serving Foie Gras and various forms of duck. One very small negative, departure time is 09.00 would be more appealing to be moved to 10.00 especially as you cannot arrive before 5pm!

“Excellent property in great location and would highly recommend to other families”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed in the property during the last week of July 2015. The property was truly amazing and lives up to all expectations in the photo's. The owners parents live opposite the property and a spoke a little English and were very friendly and helpful. The location is off the beaten track in a lovely small hamlet but is very peaceful and with its own pool it is a great place to relax. The beautiful towns of Montignac and Sarlat are close by with plenty of cobble streets to walk around, shops to browse and places to eat.

We would highly recommend canoeing on the Dordoigne from Loisirs Canoes located at Vitre-Port. The 16km trip from Vitre-Port to Benyac is very easy canoeing and passes some great countryside and picture postcard towns. Allow 5 -6 hours and take a packed lunch and you will not be disappointed.

We were a family of two adults and three children and whilst we have never been back to the same place on holiday on the basis that there are always new places to see, this gite could definitely change our view !

“Beautiful Gite in Stunning Countryside”
Reviewed 10 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed here for a week in June 2015. 4 adults and 2 children under 4.

The accommodation, outside courtyard areas and pool area were fantastic and exceeded our expectations from the photos online.

We were treated to very sunny and hot weather and the pool was perfect to cool off in each day - it had wide steps in at the end which also meant the children could paddle without going in fully.

The bedrooms were all large and although no air con the shutters meant the house was always cool and a place to retreat from the heat!

The owners parents lived just across the road and were on hand for any queries or problems we had, although they speak little English we managed to communicate well. The owner was also very accommodating in letting us check in early and check out late to flex around our flight times.

Overall a fab property and we would highly recommend to families. The prices are also extremely reasonable for this size of property in this area.
