We arrived and the stunning silence, sweet air, immense views just took our breath away! We’ve already booked to go back in 2014 as this was simply the most wonderful and relaxed environment to enjoy a holiday, within such a close (25 minute car free) walking distance to the lovely village of Eymet. This gite is definitely on the right side of Eymet too, with more open views than any other gite we’ve stayed in, and they have a lovely sitting arbour perfectly positioned to enjoy the quiet evenings. We’ve never enjoyed so much time sitting, being still and just watching the wildlife, valley views, distant farmers working the fields and sunflowers.
We stayed in Les Tourtereaux and it had everything we needed and again had the wow factor, especially when you see the size of the master bedroom with a four-poster bed in it.
Even on raging hot days, the thick walls and tiled floors inside meant it kept lovely and cool so we had the best of sleeps too.
Brian gave us a useful local restaurant guide too and helped to arrange for Bergerac Wine Tours to take us on a vineyard tour right from the doorstep here, so we fully indulged on this holiday, but there is still much more for us to see next year when we return. Can’t wait and taking friends too so we’re booking their studio gite as well next time.
