“Lovely, peacful rural location”
Reviewed 6 August 2018 for a stay in July 2018

A lovely warm welcome from Caroline and Andy when we arrived. The wine, cheese, bread and coffee was much appreciated after our long journey. Very thoughtful and kind.

We had a lovely stay in Jasmine cottage. Very peaceful and pretty location, perfect for relaxing. The little cottage has everything you need and enough room for a family of four. It was clean and comfortable.

It was very hot at this time of year (I would recommend you take a fan as the evenings in the cottage are very warm), so the pool was a welcome repreive from the heat. It's a small shared pool which is well maintained and was adequate for our needs. A large family arrived next to us but we worked out the pool usage between us.

Caroline and Andy were available if we needed them and made some suggestions of places to visit. Nearby is a lovely little beach by the lake with plenty of shaded spots to sit. My son would definitely recommend the Adventure park which is also nearby. If you fancy a drive, Brantom is about an hour away, very pretty and worth a visit.

Thank you Caroline and Andy, we enjoyed our stay at your lovely cottage :)

Dear Pam thank you for our very kind and generous review. You are so right about the fans, it’s been very hot here over the last few weeks so I think we will invest in some. We are really pleased you went to Brantôme, it is truly a lovely town. We are glad you enjoyed the pool, it is really warm this time of year. Caroline and I are very happy that you enjoyed your stay, it was a pleasure to have you here . You will be welcomed back anytime very best regards Dave & Caroline (many thanks for the chocolate) ps I’m bad with names too Regards Dave

Hi Helen and Nick, the loss of our Wi-Fi is a very rare event.
Whilst the Wi-Fi is generally more than adequate for our guests we have recently heard that we are to expect cable internet in the near future which will hopefully improve access for both ourselves and our guests.

“Great place”
Reviewed 13 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We only stayed 2 nights while driving through France but we were made to feel very welcome at this beautiful cottage. We turned up late on Sunday without food and Anna and Jim gave us food for dinner from their own supplies. We had a great day at the adventure park on their recommendation. Very impressed.

“Little bit of french paradise”
Reviewed 23 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

From our welcome on arrival to being waved off at the end of 2 weeks our stay was wonderful .ANNA and JIM were superb hosts and very happy to share their little bit of paradise with us. They were more than happy to give advice and help on places to visit and things to do in the area, and to chat about our day on our return. The Gite was beautiful with everything we needed and the pool was welcome on the hotter days,within the most peaceful and relaxing garden with lots of wildlife too. A really great choice for access to the lovely lakes nearby and the lovely Limoges and other towns nearby.Pictures don't do it justice...it is really lovely. We would return without hesitation.

We really enjoyed having you stay and hearing about your days exploring. We learned so much about fishing from Chris and were so pleased that he managed to catch all those carp. We would love to have you back.

“Another excellent stay at Jasmine Cottage”
Reviewed 1 December 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Our second stay at this property, last time was for a short stay on the way to the south. As we enjoyed it so much we decided to stay for a week this year. The owners Anna and Jim are very helpful but not intrusive and even showed us around some of the local Brocante markets. Very peaceful location and the new petanque court was a hit with our boys. A very short drive or a pleasant cycle ride takes you to a large lake with a couple of beaches. Highly recommended.
