“A stunning property”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A beautiful property, set in beautiful surroundings and well placed for many of the Dordogne's attractions. The property is immaculate and has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The owners, Roma and Glenn, were incredibly hospitable and very welcoming. Highly recommened!

“The perfect French villa”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A quick review: Fantastic! The house is everything you could ever want in a French villa. The photos do not do it justice. Very large, beautifully finished. The pool and terrace is awesome. The extended gardens are a delight to explore. The hosts are very friendly and go out of their way to help make the holiday special. Travelled with 2 families with kids aged 3,5,5,6. They loved it. Book this one.

“EXCELLENT FAMILY HOLIDAY - A GREAT HOME AND LOVELY HOSTS”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We booked La Chenaie relatively late but managed to find a real gem. Glenn and Roma have lovingly restored their home with meticulous detail and it is clear within minutes of arrival that they are extremely proud and rightly so!

We travelled with another family so five children (all under the age of six) in total and six adults. The house is conveniently laid out so that it splits well for two families. The large kitchen has all the facilities you need and more! Whilst we hardly used it the games room and the ability to have UK TV were great. We were initially worried that being their home the house would be too good for the abuse the children would give it. This was not a problem they have designed it to not only look lovely (and the photos do not do it justice) but with hard wearing surfaces etc.

The house is pretty self contained. We spent lots of time with the children playing various games on the open space opposite the house. There are then extensive woods which are well worth an explore. The pool became the centre of attention for most activities. This meant we did not venture out much. The nearby town Sorges does not have huge amount to offer, a good bakery and a basic market on Sunday morning. Other than that Perigueux is a short trip in the car and well worth a night out. We had a lovely swim in the river in Cubjac.

Glenn and Roma also have two small Gites adjoining the main house. Whilst we did not see these they could be ideal if you are travelling with a larger group. They happened to be in one of the houses which was ideal as they were on hand should we need to ask any questions. However they very much kept themselves to themselves and were in no way intrusive. They were the perfect hosts!

If you are looking to come to this part of France or the Dordogne then there is no better place to stay. I imagine you will need to get in quick though as this will go quickly next year.

Beautiful house in a lovely setting. Woodland walks every day and never saw half of it. 5 minutes to local shops, 15 minutes from large shopping centre and lots to see within an hours drive. Accommodation first class with every facility. All agreed we would love to return in the summer, no hesitation in recommending.

“Everything we wanted .. and more”
Reviewed 11 December 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Now and again everything just works perfectly when you book a holiday rental. This was the case at La Chenaie. The house is straight out of 'Country Life' magazine. A spacious period farmhouse beautifully furnished yet very informal. Set in 40 acres of some of the prettiest country in a region noted for it's scenery yet only 20 minutes from the capital of the Dordogne. No problem keeping the kids happy or us adults. Table tennis, snooker, darts, swimming pool - even a field archery course and all the equipment. We'd expected to spend a lot of time touring the many attractions of the area. Instead we kept finding excuses to just stay at La Chenaie and saved a fortune in petrol and eating out.

The owners, a retired couple from the North of England, couldn't do enough to make the holiday exceptional. Our only worry is they won't have room for us next year.
