“Excellent hosts, Great scenery lots for little ones to do!”
Reviewed 20 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Mark and Sandie were great hosts and gave billiant advice on the local attractions and sites. They also set up our gite with our family in mind and even bought toys specifically for our daughter. The surrounding scenery , villiages, markets and castle gave us enough to do spending as much or as little time on site as we wanted. There was so much to do around the gite, with it's toys, ducks, chickens, friendly cat, trampoline, pool, swing, ride on toys we were never bored. Such ashame the weather was poor the first week. Overall we had a fantastic relaxing holiday.

“Fantastic accommodation - perfect for young children!”
Reviewed 7 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed in Duck Cottage for 1 week at the end of August. The cottage itself is a perfect size for a family of 4 and had everything we needed for the week (and more!). The surrounding gardens are perfect for small children - our two girls (5 and 2) loved the treehouse, playing hide and seek behind the trees, the trampoline, the swimming pool and just having plenty of space to run around. Sandie and Mark are truly wonderful hosts, they have suggestions and helpful tips for days out, nothing is too much trouble and everything is really well thought through. Sandie took the girls to pick fresh veg from the garden and feed the ducks, and they collected eggs from the hens - which they loved! We didn't want to leave and I would thoroughly recommend Duck Cottage to anyone.

“A Perfect Family Holiday in Rural France”
Reviewed 23 September 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Family of two adults and a busy 3 year old. Had a really wonderful two weeks in July at Duck Cottage.

The location is very rural, so perfect for a getaway. We were really lucky with the weather and it was hot and sunny for both weeks.

The cottage is plenty big enough for a family of two adults and two children with a good sized kitchen and all the things you need. The huge garden is great for kids to explore and there were always ducks and chickens and Buster the cat wandering about.

The big pool is safely behind a giant fence and a gate with a latch high up. The pool was nice but cool at the start of our hols, but it heated up nicely with the sunshine.

Sandie (the owner) couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful and our 3 year old fell in love with her and helped collect eggs, feed the ducks, pick strawberries etc. There were toys inside and outside so we didn't have to take as much with us, which was a lovely touch.

We did lots of chilling out, eating al fresco and sitting by the pool. We also went out and explored local towns and sights. We loved Duras and Cahors. We also went to the night market in Laparade - think farmers market where they cook the food in front of you.

Sandie offers to cook a welcome meal for guests and as we arrived late this was very welcome and tasty. Sandie also babysat for us so the two of us could go out - to a fantastic restaurant "Ma Maison".

We couldn't recommend Duck Cottage any more highly. We'd definitely go back!

“A parent friendly idyl with twins”
Reviewed 21 August 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We had 4 amazing weeks living at Duck Cottage. This was our first overseas trip with our twin girls and we couldn't have made a better choice. Sandie & Mark have a beautiful property setup in a really parent friendly way - fantastic grounds, a well fenced off pool, baby equipment (2 cots with good mattresses, 2 highchairs, changing mats, etc, etc) , BBQs, etc. just to list a few of the amenities that made our stay enjoyable & relaxed.
The location is perfect surrounded by rolling fields with wildlife all around but only a 20mins walk (5mins drive) to the village with a cafe (early coffees & afternoon beer), boulangerie and tabac (better stocked than anything i'd seen before). We spent most days playing with our girls under the plum tree but we were very easy driving distance from Bordeaux, Bergerac, St Emillion for lovely days out.
We were even able to enjoy a couple of nights out as Sandie babysat whilst we tried out a couple of the local restaurants.
I can't recommend Sevenne enough and we really hope to visit again.

“Idyllic!”
Reviewed 10 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We have just spent a wonderful week 'en famille' at these beautiful gites. The location is fabulous, so quiet and secluded - ideal for a holiday with small children, especially when you add in the chickens and ducks, not forgetting Buster!
Sandie and Mark really go the 'extra mile' and are so helpful with recommendations and local information, even booking a table in advance for a superb restaurant. We also had the pleasure of Sandie's company the evening we went to the night market at Laparade.
In the words of our grandson - it was the best holiday ever!

“Unmissable secluded gite with a great pool!”
Reviewed 2 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Duck Cottage Sevenne is a highly recommended stay for anyone wanting to savour the delights of South West France, but who demands seclusion and quiet in beautiful surroundings.

We were bowled over by Sevenne and the children have not stopped talking about it since our return.

The gite is set a way off a quiet road in a large garden in which roams chickens, ducks and Buster the cat. There is plenty for children to do - a trampoline, tree house, picking fruit, exploring the gardens, feeding the chickens (or chasing them ... as my youngest preferred to do).

The pool is large and clean, and is a delight with plenty of loungers around the outside both in the shade and sun dependent on your preference.

Sandie is just brilliant - friendly and accommodating, and nothing is too much trouble. She helped us plan trips out, recommended good restaurants, and gave us some of her precious English-imported tea bags when we ran out, as well as fresh fruit and vegetables from her allotment. You'd be far pushed to find someone who takes as much personal care to ensure you make the most of your holiday.

Sevenne a real find and should be a definite feature in any holiday itinerary.

“Stunning, peaceful location - a perfect holiday!”
Reviewed 28 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Our week here was just perfect - such a beautifully-kept gite, gardens and pool. It's very secluded and private, and every little detail has been thought through. Sandie & Mark are fabulously welcoming and helpful - full of local tips and advice that go above and beyond the norm. The location is so calm, and within a short drive of wonderful places for day trips, including wonderful vineyards.
