“A terrific group holiday destination”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

From the moment we arrived at La Colombiere everything went very smoothly. We were a group of 12 and the first thing the lovely Wendy said was 'you can make as much noise as you like'. Music to our ears. Wendy and Ray are a big part of what makes this destination special. They were so accommodating and happy to help with anything that we needed, while at the same time allowing us to have the space to enjoy ourselves as a group.

La Colombiere has so much to offer. We spent a lot of time down by the pool where there was ample seating for our group (and more). The pool was a lovely temperature in the warm weather. There are also lights you can turn on for late night pool parties. There is a football pitch which we used most days either for football, or cricket, and the badminton court also got a lot of use. It was too hot to need to use the cinema or games room, and the fact there is no internet anywhere other than the games room was rather a blessing, as it meant people weren't thinking about work or on the phone while down by the pool.

In terms of eating, there are loads of options. We sat outside for lunch and inside in the lovely dining room (which again comfortably seats 12) every day, but also made use of the BBQ which has a nice seating area around it. The local Carrefour is about an 8 minute drive away near the lovely town of Eymet, where we went out for one night which was a lot of fun. We also did some wine tasting, which Wendy very kindly organised for us. It was €5 a head for the afternoon and was well worth it.

All in all this is a destination that has something for everyone. For a group of late 20 years olds it made for a fabulous holiday and if it is still available to take next year we will certainly do so.

“A Perfect holiday for a large family”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a great time at the property. There were 17 of us in the party including 11 children in the 3-19yr old age group
The cinema was a high point for the teenagers. The pool was loved by all in the party. Although the pool is at one end of the property. The fridge/freezer, music loudspeakers at the pool and the ample seating arrangements means the pool is fantastic and if people want to chill in their properties pool noises are not heard.
Wendy and Ray could not have been more obliging. We asked to borrow a food blender as a couple of our party wanted to make there own houmus and next day Wendy provided a blender.

“perfect peace”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Quiet and out of the way, and all the better for it. We stayed during a heatwave, but the pool was a life saver! Very well equipped kitchen and bathroom. Eymet has nice shops and restaurants a ten minute drive away. Altogether a great holiday.

Beautiful location tucked away in the French countryside. Really peaceful, fantastic facilities, especially the pool and outside dining areas. Really recommend it for large families or groups of friends!

“French countryside paradise”
Reviewed 10 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Had a wonderful break here with a large group of friends this summer. The house and grounds are beautiful, the particular highlights include the grand dining table which comfortably seated 20 for banquet style feasts, and the breathtaking setting from the pool terrace with a glass of wine in early evening.

The badminton court and table tennis table saw plenty of action although the weather was simply too good to make use of the impressive cinema room.

Make sure to sample some of the juicy cherries from the tree!
