“A hidden gem in the Dordogne area”
Reviewed 18 September 2013 for a stay in August 2012

Our stay in this gite was one of the best vacations our family has ever had. The gite itself is very well equipped with state-of-the-art appliances, comfortable beds and linen, decorated with exquisite taste by the owner who is also an artist. We greatly appreciated the attention given to details such as the ironed sheets on the beds, beautiful furniture, books, magazines, fast internet connection, as well as the excellent recommendations given by Maria and her family to visit the surrounding area, particularly good restaurants (for all budget possibilities), which is one of our favorite things to do when we travel abroad. We sat in the outside terrace to have breakfast, or to enjoy a bottle of wine watching the sunset, looking at the breathtaking gardens, carefully groomed. Our kids (5 and 11) were happy to walk around the property freely, as it is a very secure area. They used the playground and the pool, and were in absolute heaven in the gardens. Although the gite is beside the main house where the owners live, privacy was never an issue. The entrance to the gite is independent from that of the main house, and the parking area was very close to the entrance. As we spent a whole month in the gite, we even shared with the owners a couple of wonderful weekend meals, with fresh produce from the potagerie and roasted chicken from the local market. They are graceful, respectful, very well educated, warm people who were always accessible and happy to answer all questions and give recommendations. The area is incredibly beautiful and has lots of things to do for all ages and interests. We loved a guided tour to the Bernardaud porcelain factory in Limoges, where our kids got to see and touch everything and get a basic understanding of what porcelain is made of and how. My husband and oldest daughter went on a morning balloon ride over the Dordogne river, which was truly an unforgettable experience. We visited the Chateau de Puymartin, where my little girl loved the story of the "Dame Blanche". My husband loves driving so we went to quite a few places: Sarlat, Perigueux, Saint-Jean-de-Cole, the Lascaux Caves, la Roque Saint Christophe, Montignac, Bordeaux. The gite is a wonderful base from where to visit the whole Perigord Vert area, but also to relax. Thanks to Maria, Paul and their kids for a wonderful stay, and the marvelous jazz concert! We recommend this place without hesitation and wish to go back soon.
