“A tranquil and picturesque slice of rural France with all the creature comforts you could desire”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014 for a stay in September 2013

We discovered the delights of L'Oustal Nebe over ten years ago and it has become our home from home almost every year since then. Not only does Dawn ( a considerate and charming hostess ) always go out of her way to to welcome us, but she takes a real pride in the decor, the cleanliness and the individuality of this lovely cottage which overlooks a stunning valley near Cahors. As a keen golfer, it has the added attraction of free golf at a charming golf and country club ( nine proper holes ) no more than twenty minutes drive away. We are looking forward to our next trip this October. I would thoroughly recommend this delightful property.

“We stayed at l'Oustalnébé four times: Excellent!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014 for a stay in September 2012

We stayed at l'Oustalnébé four times, because it is a very nice place. Dawn (and Paul) is very hospitable, The cottage is well furnished and clean! Every time we were there there was no building going on. The view on the valley is beautiful, the garden with the pool is nice and private. And we love to play golf on the Roucous golfcourse, an 8 minutes drive away, and the fee is included in the rent of the cottage. Brilliant!

“Relaxing winter break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2014 for a stay in February 2012

I stayed at this cottage for 3 months at the beginning of an extended round the world trip that lasted for over two years. It is a very cosy place to stay with picturesque countryside and the opportunity to play golf. The owner pays particular attention to detail to ensure that your stay is comfortable. The cottage is certainly clean and there is everything here that you could need. The remainder of my travels took me around various european countries, the far east, Australia and USA. As such I stayed in many different privately owned properties and I would certainly recommend this one.

“A relaxing and peaceful holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014 for a stay in September 2013

In contrast to the unfair and negative review we have to say that this cottage is excellent and reflects exactly the property description on the website. It is certainly very good value for money. The location is superb, quiet and the facilities are more than adequate. We have been to this cottage more than once and it was always clean and tidy on arrival. As regards the electricity being turned off during a thunderstorm, anyone visiting rural France should know that storms can be quite violent (and spectacular) and turning off electric power is normal practice for safety reasons. During our stays at the cottage building also took place but it was far away from the cottage and out of sight and did not trouble us at all. In fact for us it was interesting to see traditional building methods being used. The owner of the cottage was friendly and welcoming and would go out of her way to help if help was needed. We would highly recommend this wonderful cottage.

“Very Disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We booked 2 weeks here in August 2013 way back in November 2012, after discussing with the owner as to the suitability of the property. She said it was very quiet and peaceful with lovely views and she would only bother us if we needed advice.
On the first night of our arrival she turned all the electricity of because of a thunderstorm for 3 hours. The kitchen was very dirty with condiments up to several years old. The property that was supposed to have been cleaned before arrival fell very short of this claim.
We were promised the use of 2 toilets only 1 ever worked and the cesspit was blocked, and for 1 day we had to endure an appalling smell.
On the 3 day she moved in the Builders to refurbish an old barn on site, the noise and dust got everywhere including in my newly valeted car.
This continued for the rest of our holiday until we could take no more of her excuses and left 3 days early.
Avoid this one at all costs!

Management Response

I have run Loustalnebe cottage for 25 years with never bad reviews. I do not accept that the cottage was dirty at all. The fosse did block and it was dealt with the same day
The smell was a mystery It may have been the dishwasher not being used. The client could not find anything that did smell
There was the option of parking well away from the barn but whilst in the hangar I provided a cover for the car There is a lot of dust in August due to harvesting
I can provide hundreds of testimonials of satisfied clients some returning as many
as 20 seasons I have a large database of satisfied customers

I did have some work on the barn 70 meters away from the cottage garden out of sight of the cottage, for a duration of one week, during working hours and it did offend my clients so I cancelled the builder. I refunded 200 pounds and offered a free future week for any inconvenience caused
I do regret this incident and have tried to make amends
