We had a super stay in Vine Cottage. Cottage was clean and tidy and we were greeted with a most welcome mini hamper on our arrival with some fresh bread and other essentials. The grounds are very tranquil ensuring a relaxing and peaceful time with a super pool too. There were lots of attractions to visit within a very short drive and we were most grateful to Nicola, a real star, for advice and help with bookings. My wife was celebrating a special birthday during our stay and Nicola also arranged some surprises on my behalf. For a special evening meal we can also certainly recommend the Maison Dupeliac Restaurant just minutes away.
This is a lovely gite in a quiet area. Nicola and Jason are fabulous hosts, with an eye to making guests settle in fast, courtesy of the lovely welcome hamper and wine! The accommodation is clean and comfortable, and had all the cooking equipment we needed bearing in mind how many nice places there are to eat in the surrounding countryside. I hired a bike which was also a great service. The pool is lovely and there is a nice walk on the property in the grounds.
Vine Cottage is a lovely little gite, well equipped and with excellent facilities around the site. Sarlat is only a few minutes drive away and the surrounding area is great for walking with quiet roads meandering through woods and meadows full of wild orchids. Our hosts, Nicola and Jason were very warm and welcoming and couldn't have been more helpful. Would definitely recommend.
What a nice little little find. The cottage is well equipped with a full kitchen, nice little sitting area and TV with several British channels for those pining for some English-language programming. The bed is comfy and a nice big walk in shower in the ensuite bathroom.
The grounds are lovely with sitting areas in several places and a hammock for the more adventurous. The pool is a welcome relief from the humidity when the weather gets hot. Definitely give Vine cottage a try
Our gite was beautiful with all you need and more. Comfy large bed and great walk-in shower that really worked. Lovely enclosed garden which our 3 little Yorkshire terriers greatly appreciated. The grounds, swimming pool and all facilities were first class, so quiet and everything felt so private. The wildlife around the gite and on the woodland walks was very diverse. Wear good shoes for your walks! The restaurants recommended by our hosts were good especially Maison Dupeliac which is very close. Very friendly with great food. First class. Many, many things to do and see in the area. We did a few but on many days we could not bring ourselves to leave 'home'. All in all a holiday to remember and hopefully we will be back.
Vine cottage at La Blanquette is fantastic. The cottage was beautiful, with everything we could have wanted to use and it was spotless, as was the rest of the site. The pool area was beautiful and less than 100m from the cottage. It was completely tranquil with no noise and lovely sunloungers and other seating areas to relax in.
We spent a week at the cottage and made use of the bike and canoe hire. These were organised fantastically, with no hassle. The owners are happy to help with any needs and even do a bakery run in the morning!
The location of the cottage is perfect for enjoying the Dordogne area.
What can we say that we haven't said before but threefold! La Blanquette cannot be bettered and Vine Cottage in particular has everything anyone could ask for and more. The gite itself contains all the facilities and equipment you could require and feels like 'home'.
Another three weeks stay and still didn't want to come home.
Nik and Jas, and Julie and Frank all made our stay so special and we can't wait to come back in 2016 for our fourth visit.
