“Wonderful”
Reviewed 29 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We have just left Delsud after a wonderful long stay.

The property is very big and there is plenty of space throughout. There are four large bedrooms, one bathroom and two separate toilets (one being downstairs). The kitchen, dining room and living room are all open plan. There is a lovely seating area with a BBQ which looks over the pool area.

The pool area is fantastic. It’s big, has 8 sun chairs, 6 of which are the most comfortable sun loungers with pillows. The pool is huge and is very warm. You can spend hours in there. We went in everyday. Swimming on an evening watching the sun go down over the valley was our favourite time of day. We had 30+ weather everyday which was a real treat.

The decor is rustic, tasteful and very cosy. Bedding and towels are supplied. When you leave are you simply strip the beds and place all bedding and towels in the bathroom for the maid to collect.

The property is perched on the hillside and has sweeping views across the valley. There are plenty of animals wandering about such as deer, donkeys, a peacock and lizards.

The property is easy to find from Coly Village. The approach is easier if you go into Coly, and take the turning next to the petrol station and follow the road straight up, turning right onto the track to Delsud.

The utensils and cooking equipment were perfect for cooking meals everyday. The oven and induction hob cooked food to perfection!

Having a car is essential to get about as the nearest supermarket is in Terrasson roughly 15 minutes drive away. Terrasson has everything you need with many bars, restaurants, supermarkets etc.

Nearby to the house are two restaurants. They are within about 15 to 20 minutes walking distance down the hill.

We were able to visit many beautiful towns as the property is positioned in such a nice area of the Perigord Noir. We recommend Sarlat, Terrasson, Saint Amand de Coly, Castelnaud, Montignac, Bergerac, Hautefort to name but a few.

If you have any issues Marie and Jean, the property owners, are on hand as they live in a house just across from the property. Delmina is also the other property just above which too can be rented for a holiday. Marie and Jean are very helpful and pleasant.

We would stay here again and had a wonderful time. Thank you!

“Lovely Views and Good Gite”
Reviewed 3 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

We have just left after a week staying at Delsud.

This was a very relaxing place to stay and like the photos suggest there is a beautiful pool with a beautiful pool.

The location is perfect for exploring the nearby pretty villages of St Amand de Coly, Montignac, Sarlat, Domme, Collonges le Rouge etc.

The reason I have no rated this review excellent is because the property information would suggest that the house is in splendid isolation. It isn't. The owners property is 50 yards away and another property equidistant at the bottom of the garden. That said you never felt intruded upon by the owner far from it.

Equally when we have stayed at other gites in France, the very basics have been left for you I.e. Salt, washing up liquid etc and usually there is a welcome loaf of bread, pint of milk and a bottle of wine. No such luck here.

Minor but important details that made this only a very very good stay rather than an exceptional one.

“Loved this beautiful house and property!!”
Reviewed 9 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I can't say enough about this beautiful property. The house is fantastic, the yard is amazing, the animals (horse, donkey, dog, 2 cats and a peacock!!!! were so fun. My husband and I, our daughter and son-in-law, two grandchildren (6 and 8) and our 98 year old friend all stayed and loved the area, the owners and everything about this place. So beautiful and relaxing. It has a beautiful pool too. Also has wi-fi. I would stay here again for sure. It is not very easy to find, but well worth the work.

The house is lovely and has lovely views down the valley and to the hills. You need to take pool towels as they are not supplied , it has quite a large pool with plenty of space around it. The location is very good for visiting the Vesere area and it is easy to drive to Sarlat or the lower part of the Dordogne.

“Wonderful off season rental”
Reviewed 13 April 2015 for a stay in February 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Delsud for two months whilst looking for a property to buy in the Dordogne. The setting is wonderful - peaceful, beautiful and totally unspoilt. Jean and Marie are perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble - the log burner roaring on our arrival was particularly welcome after a long, cold journey. We had a great time and got to know the local area well and there is much to love in and around Coly. Similar to the last review we'd love to keep this place a secret but Jean and Marie deserve to be busy - and rightly so are.
