“Peace and Tranquility”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have just got home from 2wks at Le Marronnier and had an amazing time. Jeanette was a very welcoming host and helpful throughout, from booking right through to tips on best places to visit/eat.The Barn felt like a home from home, beautifully furnished in a rustic chic to suit the character of the building.... the photos don't do it justice.
The Barn was well equipped with all we could want including UK Freeview TV.
Barn has swing set, trampoline, badminton, table tennis and a selection of bikes in addition to the pool. The location a lovely rural hamlet with local walks....my kids had a great time spotting all sorts of wildlife, including a young deer that would visit the garden some evenings.
The pool was great, surrounded by the fragrance of lavender, and was kept very clean and being heated was always at a lovely temp for swimming, even on the cooler days. Whilst off the beaten track we found we were never too far away from attractions in the Region and would recommend Branthome/kayaking as a fab family day out. Periguex was about 25mins away with shopping/museums/restaurants.
If you want a relaxing holiday in the beautiful Dordogne, then I would highly recommend this place. We spent many great days relaxing by the pool, picking fresh tomatoes, raspberries and peaches from the garden to eat with our lunch under the gazebo....idyllic. If I were to think of any feedback, we couldnt find any outside lighting if you wanted to be outside after dark?.....but we are already looking to rebook for next summer...so I guess enough said!

“A fantastic house”
Reviewed 20 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was the perfect house to spend our summer holiday. It is set is set back from the road down a small lane and so is incredibly peaceful. The house catered brilliantly for our group of twelve. It was clean and extremely well equipped. The pool, though smallish, is surrounded by lavender and thyme which is just beautiful and smells amazing. There are comfortable sun loungers for relaxing while watching the kids in the pool. They were in heaven and so were we. There is plenty of space for children (and adults) to play - a large field with two trampolines, table tennis and swings. There were great footpaths close by for walkers and runners and lovely old villages and towns within easy reach. We would happily come back again.

“One word - perfection!”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a fabulous time here in July 2015. A warm welcome from Jeanette awaited us upon our arrival and she showed us round, recommended some of the local attractions and left us to settle in. The house is gorgeous, the rooms well appointed and the outdoor pool, trampoline, swing set and other games a welcome bonus for small children. Saying that, my husband and I got quite competitive over the table tennis! The extensive DVD library provided something for everyone and meant that we could lure our small children inside at the height of the day when they needed some rest from the sun. There was a well stocked vegetable garden and lots of space to roam around and spread out. The property is extremely private and in a pretty little hamlet not far from some fantastic activities. We had planned to mainly stay around the house but with so much fun on the doorstep we ventured out most days and get still ended the holiday relaxed. Would definitely recommend the velorail, a visit to lovely Brantome and the excellent caves at Proumeyssac. We created so many lovely memories here so if you're considering a gite in this area, book this one, we are positive that it is, quite honestly, the best. Thank you Jeanette and family for creating such a fab house, we will be back!

“Brilliant property in idyllic rural location.”
Reviewed 4 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This fitted all criteria for us. It was a great house in its own land, in a peaceful rural location, but not too isolated. Convenient to an authentic Dordogne village, and not too far from a supermarket. Great walks right on the doorstep.

“Lovely House in Tranquil Setting”
Reviewed 8 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Large house and cottage in tiny hamlet. Lots of space outside with swimming pool. Charming towns and activities nearby. Great to unwind and relax. We have been 2 years on the trot
