We had a lovely break. The house is well equipped, comfortable beds and good communication with the owner. We can thoroughly recommend.

“Oh I really wanted to bring this place home with me!”

I have just returned from a superb holiday in the South of France where we stayed at this beautiful property. I was absolutely in love with the house and location from the moment the car rolled slowly down the private drive to this secluded beauty!

We were welcomed by fantastic views of the castle and valley and a very well presented terrace to the house. So much time and effort is obviously put into keeping the grounds, with beautiful lawns and flower beds. The house itself is huge! 3 floors of spacious, traditionally designed rooms, the front door leads into a hallway with the Lounge and Dining Rooms off to the left, a large dining kitchen to the right and the first of four bedrooms and the first of 2 bathrooms at the back. A staircase down to a further bedroom and ample washing area with 'games room' in the garage!
Upstairs a further 2 bedrooms and a bathroom hide with even better views of the valley and a local village church can finally be seen as well as heard!

The Pool at the back of the property is a real sun trap and so peaceful whilst being everything you need for that holiday by the pool feel, super clean with loungers complete with cushions available too!

This place really did have everything we needed, and the local area was everything you would expect from a typical French Village complete with bakery for the daily breakfast, newsagent with milk etc and a butchers for ideas for dinner!

From a communication point of view, nothing was too much for the owner with speedy responses to all my questions before booking through to final payment and the information available at the house!

The ONLY negative points were that the photos of the inside of the house do it little justice to seeing it for real and that I had to leave the house there and come home to my 3 bed semi :-(

“A Magical place to stay”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Crouzette. The house was very comfortable, well equipped and we had plenty of space for our extended family of 8. It was extremely hot during our stay and we were very grateful for the fans in the bedroom. The swimming pool was great, used by all as we were so lucky with the weather. Most mornings we watched the hot air balloons come up through the mist and go over the house which was very magical. Castelnaud was interesting, again great views. Sarlat is not far, a lovely old town with lots of restaurants. The market is excellent on a Saturday and in the evening there are street entertainers. The Gardens of Marqueyssac are worth visiting, fantastic views over the Dordogne. We went canoeing which was great fun. The Wifi was good for teenage boys ! This is an ideal spot to stay and we would recommend it. We all had a holiday to remember.

“Beautiful! A wonderful holiday”
Reviewed 23 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We (three couples (including one heavily pregnant woman) and two young children (2 & 9 months) stayed at La Crouzette for a week in early June and it was gorgeous! Wish we owned it!

The location of the house was so quiet and picturesque and the house itself was lovely. Big airy, tastefully decorated rooms with a veranda for use when it rained (once), a big table for meals outside, a driveway and garden perfect for boules and a great pool.

Unfortunately we were too early in the season for all the amenities to be open just up the road by the impressive castle in the night but we went there for coffee and crepes during a couple of the days. A few minutes walk. You'd need a car to get to the lovely boulangerie, cafe and shop at the bottom of the hill as in my opinion the road was unsuitable to walk along (safety-wise). There was some steep lanes down to the village I believe but due to the buggies we couldn't manage them.

Although we ventured to lovely nearby villages, two of the best days we had were sunning ourselves by the river at the bottom of the hill. The river is so clean and fresh. It was lovely.

The owner always responded quickly to my pre-trip questions and was very friendly.

Unfortunately (fortunately?!) we were there during a heatwave and so the only suggestion I can make is that the house would benefit from air-con, rather than fans, but we managed fine.

We aim to return to La Crouzette and had the most fantastic holiday. Enjoy!
