Me and my partner stayed here just before Christmas in 2016. It was an amazing location, right in the heart of the French countryside, a very old and amazing style French house with lots of character. We stayed in a renovated gite which was lovely and cosy. A real heaven away from the usual busy cities, we stayed here for a week, it was a great place to come and unwind before Christmas. We learnt new skills from our hosts Jill and Simon (who were brilliant fun) learning how to make our own sausages from scratch and smoking our own bacon, (I had never done anything like this but I promise it was the best sausages I have EVER eaten!) And to know it was all such fresh and local produce made it extra special. I would definitely come back.
A lovely gite in a peaceful and charming area of France. Our visit in October saw early Autumn arrive with glorious colours in the orchards and woods combined with balmy weather.
The gite itself is a good size, very well equipped, and private. I particularly enjoyed walking from the gite, up the single track, and along the quiet roads through the woods. There are a number of pretty, and in some cases spectacular, bastide towns and villages in the area, with great markets and farm shops.
Hosts Jill and Simon were very welcoming, easy to talk to, and ready to answer any questions. I would thoroughly recommend a visit!
Loved it here! We got the ferry and drove down from Caen, but Bergerac Airport only 20 mins away. Our young daughter loved the gite, the pool, the dogs Ruby and Arnie and lots of trips to local markets (highly recommend Blanchards in Villereal, amazing cakes and coffee!). Sunsets and night skies spectacular here. Gite sympathetically restored with attention to detail and a home from home, it had everything we needed. Comfy beds and great shower! Hosts always smiling and helpful but never intrusive. Sad to leave - will definitely be back.
Simon and Jill were very helpful and friendly hosts. From the moment we made the booking with directions for a stress free trip from the airport, and on our arrival such a lovely warm welcome, with a very extensive helpful tips pack for things to do in the surrounding are. The gite is in a beautiful tranquil location, which straight away is very relaxing, and has recently been very nicely renovated, and is comfortable and well equipped. You can either relax on the grounds around the gite sitting on the patio or relaxing in the pool, or enjoying the surrounding area visiting some of the nearby sites. We would definitely recommend and will be booking a re-visit.
