“Lovely well equipped gite in a natural paradise with fantastic views”
Reviewed 22 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

In the heart of the countryside, but less than 10 minutes into Bergerac. Beautiful surroundings and so tranquil. Well equipped for both indoor and outdoor living; even BBQ provided with charcoal gratis.
Hosts Liz & Rob could not be more helpful and always available if necessary but never imposed on our space. Very comfortable and if returning to this area, would use this gite again.

“Still superb - second time around ...”
Reviewed 12 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I would reiterate everything I said in my review in July 2015, so I'll keep this one short and sweet. Everything was as we remembered, including the fantastic cottage, fabulous hosts, and gorgeous surroundings. A year older, our young son enjoyed the holiday even more. We are already planning another visit next year - that says it all. Thanks Rob and Liz, and look forward to seeing you again next summer.

Thank you for your very kind review.
It is always a great pleasure to welcome previous guests and doubly so when they have had another good stay.
We are fortunate to live in such a beautiful part of France, slightly away from the hustle and bustle. It allows us to offer tranquil surroundings yet within reach of so much French history along the Dordogne Valley.

“Fantastic place to stay”

Stayed here for a fortnight with my husband - Rob and Liz were great hosts, really welcoming. Rob had given great directions to find the house, they were spot on. The house was well kitted out with everything you could possibly need for a great holiday. The pool was beautiful - I loved the little 'robot' hoover - it kept the pool spotless, would say it is the best pool we have encountered on our many adventures to France over the past 20+ years. The garden is beautiful too, a great place to eat al fresco, part of the garden is intentionally 'left wild' to encourage butterflies and birds. All in all, a wonderful place to relax and recharge your batteries.

This cute little gem is perfect for a relaxing peaceful get away. The cottage has everything you could possibly need and Rob and Liz were so lovely and welcoming, we really felt they went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. The location was so lovely, we were able to sit outside every evening under a blanket of stars and not hear a sound! In fact it was so perfect my boyfriend decided to pop the question.
A big thank you to Rob and Liz for our bottle of Champagne!!!

“Superb cottage, fantastic hosts”
Reviewed 29 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

people found this review helpful

Booking La Petite Maison was exceptionally easy due to the helpfulness of Rob and Liz, our hosts for our two weeks stay. Rob and Liz were particularly helpful and went the extra mile in assisting us with managing our young son's serious food allergies, providing details of their local English-speaking GP, and helping us when we arrived with the location of the local emergency services. Directions to the property were excellent, helping us to navigate the final few miles through the stunning countryside in which the cottage is located. That said, the cottage is in no way isolated. There is a boulangerie located locally in Maurens, and a hypermarche that stocks everything you could possibly need during your stay about 15 minutes drive away. The overall condition of the cottage is excellent, and certainly more than big enough for a family of four. The quality of the furnishing is excellent, with plenty of storage space and absolutely everything provided. Beds in the main bedroom are comfortable, as is the futon in the living area on which our son slept soundly. The kitchen is very well kitted out, and includes a modern electric cooker and oven. We did however make more use of the barbecue. Again, everything was provided including tools and charcoal. When we arrived the bathroom, like the rest of the cottage, was spotlessly clean. The grounds of La Petite Maison are beautiful. There is a large well-maintained swimming pool with sun loungers, a children's play area, and the well-maintained grounds are extensive with stunning views. Locally, Bergerac is only 20 minutes away, with its old town and excellent restaurants. Vineyards and local chateaux are even closer. Fifteen minutes away is a sandy beach at Pombonne Lake which our son loved. The beach has a nice cafe, and a lifeguard station. Overall a fantastic experience made even better by exceptionally helpful but unobtrusive hosts; we are already looking at dates to return next year.

“Miles from anywhere, very quite location except for the dogs heard in the distance.”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Comfortable chairs to sit on, inside the accomadation, as at present there is not. Very difficult to prepare an evening meal with the amount of work space available. No facilities near by, for example, bakers, butchers. To visit a restaurant you need to drive and with the strict drink drive rules is it worth it?
On the plus side the pool was excellent, and the security deposit is very quickly returned.

Naturally we are very disappointed with your review and that you did not find la petite maison to your liking.

We feel that the description of the property, its location and the photographs on the Holiday Lettings website give a fair reflection of what is offered.

We were particularly sorry to see that you felt our service was not what you expected. We try to strike the balance between being available and not being intrusive and once we have established that there are no problems after our guests have settled in and that there is nothing that they need, we respect their privacy.

When our guests arrive we make a point of telling them to make themselves completely at home and that we are always available if needed.
