“Amazing Amazing!!”
Reviewed 24 August 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Travelling down to Spain from Calais with my husband and two young children (2 and 6 month old). This place was a Godsend. I wasn't expecting a good nights sleep after the children were mostly asleep on the journey. Everyone slept until 8am....thank goodness. When we woke up we were amazed with the views. The pool was lovely, which the kids enjoyed and the place was spotless...only upset we didn't get to stay more than one night. We would highly recommend this place and can't wait to go back.

“Lovely location, well equipped, pool was a big hit with all ages!”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Directions to the property were good (found it first time), beautiful sunny day when we arrived so children went straight into the pool which is really lovely with plenty of sunloungers/parasols etc available. Water a bit chilly despite the heat of the day but refreshing after a morning out and about.
Property was well equipped including fans in the upstairs room/s which we really needed a couple of nights as it was so hot. Kitchen was small but had everything (including cafetiere which meant we really hadn't needed to pack one to bring with us - should have asked).
Cahors is relatively close and the market was great (Wednesday morning).
Although there are two guest properties on the site it didn't feel busy at all, however Les Lavandes is right by the play area so if both properties had small children it might be noisier than our week was.
Virginia was very welcoming and available if we had any questions about the area or indeed how to turn on the oven!

“Fantastic location”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Gite was in a great location with a superb view from the pool.
Despite their being another gite on site their was no compromising on the space, everything was well laid out with plenty and organised. The children were well catered for.
The gite itself had all the necessary standard equipment.
Overall we had a very good time.

We are always pleased to hear that a guest has enjoyed their stay as we work hard to ensure that everything is there so that they enjoy their stay.
Re the wifi, here in southwest France, phone companies request us to unplug our modems when there is a storm, this then disables the wifi. Unfortunately, whilst this guest was staying with us, there were some thunderstorms so no wifi. The situation is explained to guests on arrival but is sometimes forgotten. We do ot experience issues with the wifi in normal weather.

“Great base for exploring the Dordogne”
Reviewed 12 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed for 1 week at the end of May. The gite is in an excellent location. Convenient for the motorway and close enough to Cahors to easily pop to restaurants in the evening or the hypermarket, but in a tranquil and beautiful hilltop setting. We enjoyed seeing the sun set behind the hills and the pool area is really well done - just too early in the year for us to use. The majority of the key sights (Rocamadour, Sarlat, Saint Cirq) are all within an hour's drive and the Lot Valley is very attractive.

Directions to the gite were excellent (I'd forgotten to print off a map so we were relying on the written instructions) and we were warmly welcomed - particularly by the enthusiasm of Madeleine the owners' daughter (a host in the making!). Good recommendation of a quick and easy restaurant for our first night too.

We benefited from extra peace and quiet as the other gite was not occupied during our stay. It's worth bearing in mind that the play equipment is closer to Les Lavandes. The gite itself served us well. The kitchen had all we needed to be able to cook for ourselves on a few occasions and the building has plenty of character (although its traditional design also means that there's not a huge amount of natural light in the living room). The weather was still warming up when we stayed so the thick stone walls meant that it could also be quite chilly in the lounge but this would probably be a bonus in the summer.

It's worth bearing in mind that the villages (and indeed towns) are very quiet on a Monday - most shops etc are closed. (It may be different in the summer). The same applies to bank holidays which we found to our cost, being unaware that this was the case until we arrived in Toulouse and again found most shops and many restaurants closed (the space attraction was excellent though).

All in all we really enjoyed our time in the Dordogne and Les Lavandes provided a really good base - thank you to Virginia and Madeleine.

We are always pleased to hear that our guests have enjoyed themselves. It is a traditional stone cottage with very thick walls and small windows to keep the heat inside in winter and to stay cool in the summer. It has a wood-burner as well as gas central heating. This wood-burner is often used by guests in the the middle seasons when there is no heating to ease any slight chill when it rains.

“SUPERB LOCATION IN SPECTACULAR AREA, EVERYTHING PERFECT”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My partner and I didn't know the area and it has been wonderful to see such truly magnificent scenery, deep gorges, wide rivers, villages hewn into the rock and wild flora in abundance, we are walkers and there are lots of trails in the local surroundings and beyond, the gite was a marvelously equipped base and the pool setting is unbeatable, crikey this all sounds to good but believe me its wonderful, Ginny and Madeline gave us good advice on things to see and do.

We hope to return next year perhaps with more of the family and take both gites, (cottages really).
