“Wonderful rural gite experience”
Reviewed 12 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We spent a week here in La Dominique gite. 4 adults and 2 children fit easily, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Gorgeous property, well equipped and with a cosy terrace overlooking the superb, heated swimming pool.

Large communal garden with plenty to keep young ones occupied. Each gite has its own BBQ facilities, which is great. We were left wanting for nothing! We also received a generous welcome basket of goodies, including wine and delicious bread and croissants from the local boulangerie.... yum!

The hosts, Paul and Tanya, are very warm and welcoming, with two wonderful young children. They put a lot of effort into delivering a high-class experience and we could not have been happier during our stay.

We do look forward to visiting again.

“Perfect and peaceful - a fantastic place to holiday!”
Reviewed 9 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We've enjoyed a week in La Fleur gite at La Maison Bleue. It was the perfect week away, in the perfect place. We live in Yorkshire and flew into Bergerac, a really easy drive on quiet roads got us to the beautiful and tranquil Touron in no time.

The welcome basket of wine, bread, butter, cheese, jam, local pastries...was such a lovely touch. La Fleur was well equipped with everything we needed as a family with a 1.5 and 4 year old. Beautifully furnished and stocked with toys, books, dvds to keep the children happy.

There is a beautiful pool, with sun lounges and inflatables, safely surrounded by a fence and locked gates. The Garden has all the play equipment needed, trampoline, playhouse, ride ons, swings, slides etc

There was so much to keep us happy and relaxed at the gite, but we did explore. Beaches, old towns, chateaus, vineyards, a really stunnng part of France and Royan Zoo was fantastic.

Hosts Paul, Tanya and the girls were the perfect hosts. Always on hand for any questions, a very informative welcome pack is provided in the gite, but their recommendations were always a success. Such a lovely family, and really made our holiday perfect. The girls playing with our two was very welcome, and always enjoyed. Wine tasting on Monday night by the local vineyard was a great touch, and thoroughly enjoyed by all!

I can't recommend this place enough, especially if you're looking for a family break, peace and sunshine. We are definitely going to book again.

“Wonderfully relaxing, fabulous hosts, lovely area”
Reviewed 10 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We stayed in La Dominique for May half term and had a wonderfully relaxing time.

Rae and JC are fabulous hosts, the gites are beautifully appointed and the area has lots of interesting things to see and do. The pool is lovely and warm and the garden is perfect for children and adults alike.

Although the weather was mixed we had a fantastic time exploring places like Talmont, Blaye and St-Emiliion. JC is extremely knowledgeable about local wines and the hamper provided on arrival is a god-send.

All in all a definite go again.

“heaven!”
Reviewed 15 March 2013 for a stay in July 2012

rae and Jc are the best hosts ... not only was there an amazing hamper waiting for us on arrival - VERY handy after driving a long way with small children - but they had lots of information for great places to visit during our stay!

the gites are stylish and modern and very kids friendly and the garden and pool great for the kids to wander round and play without you having to watch their every move

the local chateau was great for cheap and extremely tasty wine and JC has lots of knowledge of the region and food .... to say we left stuffed is an understatement!

all in all a VERY relaxing place to be with kids

Thank you so much for a lovely review. The only reason I take out items left from previous guests like jams/flour/oils, is because some people find it unpleasant using other peoples leftovers. I do include a starter kit of washing machine tablets, binliner, loo roll, washing up liquid and cleaners, however, in the future I will leave other essentials like you suggested as I know that I would rather have it there too!
