“Absolute peace and tranquility.”
Reviewed 9 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Me and my wife could easily have stayed another 2,3,4 or more weeks, it was that good, just a lovely and peaceful location to relax and soak up the sun by that fantastic pool.
Our lovely hosts Tony and Jane gave us good advice on all the best things to do and see around the area and this really ensured we got the most out of our stay there, visiting some lovely bastide villages and evening food soirees.
The Cottage is nicely placed to be near tourist hotspots like the Dordogne yet being just far enough away to ensure peace and quiet and with so many beautiful bastide villages nearby .
Our only gripe was no aircon or fan for the very hot nights otherwise everything was good.

“Fantastic Gite and Hosts”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Perfect, tranquil and well equipped gite ideal for a couple. Tony and Jane were more than welcoming and provided us with a wonderful meal when we arrived on Sunday evening. While on hand to offer lots of good advice they also ensure privacy around the gite, pool and private gardens. The rural views are breathtaking, particularly at sunset, yet only a short drive to a variety of villages offering everything you need for the ideal French vacance.
Strongly recommended.

“Fabulous accomodation in a rural setting”
Reviewed 28 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Lovely hosts and warm welcome. Tony and Jane were extremely helpful and there to advise on local events and markets etc. Plenty to do in the area (if you wish), or just relax in the glorious surroundings.
The accommodation is perfect and provides everything you need for a wonderful relaxing holiday. A great find.

“Beautiful spot in a wonderful part of France”
Reviewed 8 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Tony and Jane were wonderful hosts, there to assist whenever we needed but otherwise we were able to be very private. The setting is lovely and the gite allowed us to have a really pleasant place to come home to every evening after our adventuring. The Lot et Garonne really is one of the most understated areas in France, loads of beautiful villages to wander around and markets to have fun with shopping !! The night markets are great fun too, wonderful food and great wine with a superb atmosphere.

We had to think long & hard about writing another review on St Valentin Cottage. ( the more people that know the less chance we have of rebooking ) then we thought Tony & Jane are such a nice couple it wouldn't be fair to stop others enjoying such a wonderful place.
St Valentin is a Peaceful Cottage with a wonderful view, lovely swimming pool,so many different birds flying around. In the cottage theres everything you could wish for even sky TV if you have time.
Tony & Jane are always there to help with suggestions on what's on in the local villages and the best one to go.

“A wonderful week”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My mother and I spent a wonderful week here. We were surprised that the accomodation was a lot bigger than it looked it the photographs. Everything was well thought out inside and out. We particularly loved the private garden and the amazingly huge pool!

Tony and Jane were fantastic hosts, without being at all intrusive. They gave us suggestions for things to do each day and provided a useful tourist map of the area.

The location itself is lovely, very quiet with beautiful views all around, especially when you walk to the windmill behind the cottage.

We would thouroughly recommend this little gem.
