“Stunning View”
Reviewed 16 November 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed for one week at Le Petit Galminou and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The gite has a stunning view across the valley where we watched a thunderstorm by night. We found the gite ideal for a couple and had all the amenities you could wish for. Diana was there to welcome us when we arrived and was friendly and helpful. We spent the week cycling around the local area and found some great towns and villages especially Sarlat . The gite was well situated for this but be prepared for the climb at the end of a long days ride.

“Fantastic gite - really welcoming hosts”
Reviewed 11 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Spent 2 weeks in the gite in September and found the whole experience wonderful. We drove down from the UK having been provided with exact coordinates for the gite that took us to the front door which meant no fretting about finding it.

Both Chris & Di were the perfect hosts, were there when we arrived and made sure we were completely comfortable throughout our stay. The gite is perfect for a couple or small group who are looking for a relaxing time with good weather, good food, good wine and with a beautiful backdrop.

The town of Montignac has a good range of restaurants in picturesque surroundings across the Vezare river so a great place to get away from it all.

Extremely highly recommended.

“Wonderful Gite!”
Reviewed 30 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our journey from Bergerac airport to the gite and our hosts welcomed us with a complimentary bottle of wine and had set the wood burner ready to make a fire (it was a cool evening) which was a very nice touch. Fortunately the weather improved and we enjoyed the garden area for sunbathing and admiring the fantastic views. Nice walk along winding road to Montignac (20 mins) - uphill on return. The gite was better than we expected and was very good value for money. Our hosts were very helpful and accommodating, recommending places to visit and local walks & restaurants. Good kitchen facilities and lovely comfy bed! We walked to Lascaux II from the gite on our 2nd day which was a wonderful way to admire the area on foot and chill out. We also visited Maison du Reignac which was amazing, Font de Gaume cave (queue from about 0730 to buy an English tour!), Rocamadour, Castlenord (best castle ever) and St Leon sur Vezere for a wonderful afternoon canoeing on the river. Fantastic holiday and we hope to return next year!

“Excellent value”
Reviewed 8 December 2011 for a stay in December 2011

The gite is a very sweet little house consisting of a good sized studio room with a separate shower room. It is a well maintained, clean and pleasant house and very reasonably priced for what is on offer. There is a double bed and a double sofa bed, a table and 4 chairs, built in wardrobe and TV. There is a good selection of TV channels including all the main English channels. The kitchen has everything you need; microwave, full sized oven, washing machine, coffee maker, gas and electric hobs, fridge with freezer compartment etc. The water in the taps is recycled water so although it is suitable for cooking it cannot be drunk straight from the tap. However, Montignac is famous for its spring water which is freely available from one of the many springs in town.
I stayed at the gite during November and was very glad of the woodburner. There was also an oil filled radiator. It was very cosy and warm sitting by the fire in the evenings despite the cold temperatures outside. It would be lovely in the summer too as the gite has exclusive use of its own private terrace with table and chairs, ideal for eating out or sunbathing. In the summer you have unlimited use of the swimming pool shared only with the owner. The gite is detached and is situated in the grounds of the owner’s house. It is not far from the main house so I didn’t feel isolated. Diana (the English owner) is very helpful and approachable. There is car parking on site.
The views from the gite are spectacular. It is situated on a hill just outside the town of Montignac where there are all the facilities you might need including bars, supermarket, restaurants, post office, twice weekly market, kayak hire etc. It is possible to walk into town (there is a short cut along a public footpath) and it takes about 15-20 minutes. It’s downhill on the way down, uphill on the way back. It’s a very pleasant walk and there are many beautiful walks in the area.
I personally think it is ideally suited for single people or couples, especially in the winter months. I would definitely stay here again if I needed accommodation in the area.
