“An unbelievable escape”
Reviewed 6 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We recently returned from a truly fantastic stay at the Le Grand Bois with our friends and can honestly say the whole group have struggled to return to the stresses of our daily lives.

Our group consisted of 4 families with children ranging in age from 2 - 16 years and all had an absolute blast. The gite's grounds are brilliant, from the spotless pool to the huge lawn area and abundance of trees over-flowing with fruit, which were a particular favourite with the kids who loved picking the apples, peaches and plums to make crumbles and jam and generally eating it whilst exploring .

It is the first time that I myself have stayed at a property with such a large group and I would be lying if I said prior to leaving to go on the holiday I wasn't concerned about how we were all going to deal with the logistics of comfortably living together for a week and feeding all the hungry mouths at meal times! However pretty much immediately on our arrival at the Le Grand Bois my concerns disappeared. There is plenty of space to lose yourself in at the property, with the rooms being comfortable and spacious , the 2 large kitchen diners and the large main patio area over looking the pool and garden which became the groups favourite haunt and the best place to feed the zoo at meal times!!!!

The property is a complete escape, the area is stunning with views to take in everywhere. The sensible adults chose to enjoy these relaxing at the gite and tasting wines produced in the local area whilst the more adventurous (I call them mad individuals!) chose to hop on bicycles or go for a run to explore the local area.

My only complaint about the holiday was it was't long enough and the week went far too quickly. We will definitely be returning.

“Exceeded Our Expectations!”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

We spent six weeks at Le Grand Bois with a series of friends and relatives (including ten month old twins!) and had a fabulous holiday.
The location in the French countryside was superb providing plenty of space for games of boules and walking/jogging etc. The covered patio offered views of spectacular sunsets and a perfect place for eating and drinking.
The accommodation was spacious, comfortable and ideal for our purposes.
The pool was excellent and many happy hours were spent in or around it.
There are some lovely restaurants and markets not too far away, the details of which can be found in a file onsite.
The owners of the property were extremely helpful and very friendly.

“Stunning location, beautiful gite with great views and wildlife”
Reviewed 2 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had an absolutely wonderful stay of two weeks with our dog. The location is ideal, peaceful and quiet but very easy to access vineyards, markets, Bergerac and hypermarkets. Lots of lovely wildlife around, and beautiful countryside views.

The gite itself is very quaint - lovely on the inside and out, nice and cool too on hot days. The swimming pool was lovely catching the sun all day - with a gazebo for some shade if it gets too hot. Also loved the grounds with lots of space, lovely plants and trees and a hammock for relaxing whilst reading a book.

Would certainly go back tomorrow - a perfect gite in a perfect location if you want to see/taste the delights on offer around Bergerac. Can also recommend the lovely Sunday market in Issigneac and Eymet and surrounding chateaus are a must too.

“Stunning rural setting”
Reviewed 10 December 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We had an amazing stay at Le Grand Bois and everything was easy and very welcoming from the moment we arrived. It was such a short transfer from Bergerac airport that the kids were in the pool within an hour of us landing. The gite was well equipped and had everything that we needed, the WIFI was particularly handy.
Nearby is the beautiful town of Eymet with a fantastic food market and some lovely cafes and makes a great excursion. We also enjoyed a couple of great meals out locally which were extremely good value.
The setting is beautiful with fantastic views and it was lovely to take an evening stroll around the fields at sunset. It’s also a good area for cycling and as the roads are very quiet we felt it was really safe for the children.
We are definitely coming back next year and hope to rent out the gite and adjoining farm house together so that we can bring another family with us. We are so glad we discovered this place!

“Charming gite in a tranquil location”
Reviewed 9 December 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed in this gite for 2 months from October. For a winter rental it is lovely and cosy, with warm central heating and a lovely wood burner in the living room.

They way it’s been set up is very homely, with French themed bedrooms.

We found the gite conveniently located for supermarkets, petrol stations and restaurants etc.

On arrival, we received a lovely welcome basket, which was very much appreciated.

The owners of the gite are genuine and kind people. They’ve been so helpful and answered all our questions.

“What an amazing find”
Reviewed 30 September 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Spent lovely long weekend in May, perfect from the moment landed at Bergerac airport a dream stepped out of airport straight to car hire only 15 min drive through beautiful countryside.

Arrived to a lovely welcome basket, which was really nice touch. Location great, rural but many beautiful villages just a short drive away, Eymet not far which has excellent food market and some really great restaurants.

Enjoyed some great evenings at gite dinning outside on lovely veranda overlooking countryside.

Gite so comfortable stayed in blue room which was so French and very pretty. Spacious and so well equipped with plenty of toys and games for children, even a table tennis table and a cute hammock if you want to sneak off for a quiet snooze.

Pool good size, clean and perfect temperature plenty of sun loungers and great gazebo if you prefer a little shade.

Can't wait to go back next year.

“Lovely family holiday property”
Reviewed 22 September 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This is a great choice for a group of friends or family. The outside pool is larger than you would normally expect at such a property and there is plenty of space surrounding the property.
The outside games i.e. table tennis and small children toys and games cater for all ages. The lounge is also very well equipped so if you rent this house in the winter or need to get out of the sunshine, there is still plenty to keep everyone amused. The property is spacious inside and decorated and furnished to a high standard.
We spent a great few days enjoying all the facilities that the house has to offer and the local surrounding area.
The owners are extremely accommodating and friendly.
We will definitely return at a future date
