Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Family Gathering
Three generations and thirteen members of our family have just spent a vey enjoyable fortnight in this excellent villa. The setting is idyllic and the property spacious and extremely well equipped. We did the usual touristy things visiting the local vineyards, animal sanctuary and chocolate factory and even ventured further afield for caves and canoeing. However had we been less adventurous we could have quite easily occupied ourselves without moving. The small children loved the trampoline and outside play area and the teenagers enjoyed playing pool, cycling and using the gym. We played cricket and football in the spacious garden and then relaxed in the sauna. Most of all we had hours of fun , morning noon and night in the large pool. The kitchen was very well equipped and spacious enough for our large family and everyone appreciated the 4 bathrooms. This was our fourth stay in a French villa but this was the most luxurious to date Thank you Tracy and team for all your help and a lovely holiday.

The best holiday property we have ever stayed in!!!
We own a property management and rental business in Spain, and think we know a thing or two as to what makes a great holiday home. The fact that we have been renting either one of Tracey's two wonderful houses for the past ten years should speak volumes. Acabanes is extremely well suited to both for summer and autumn rentals, and is perfect both for large and small holiday groups. The level and quality of the properties equipment is beyond exceptional, and caters for every need from baby equipment to mountain bikes!!! We travel with two golden retrievers who revel in the large fenced garden, and wonderful vineyard walks a short distance from the house. We enjoy cooking at home and the kitchen is possibly the best equipped I have ever found in a rental property, however if you prefer to venture out there are numerous restaurants within a short drive. Wine lovers will love the local wineries, many of whom welcome visitors with open arms and offer free wine tastings and vineyard tours, however you may find it difficult to drag your family away from this beautiful house. Tracey is a true professional. From initial contact to departure information she has everything covered, and is always on hand should you require assistance or need any local information.

Superb villa - high quality everything and exceptional facilities in a peaceful location
By any standards, this is an exceptional villa. Nestled in peaceful Dordogne countryside with a huge garden - well over an acre, a heated pool and no neighbours overlooking you. It is superbly equipped and every effort is made to keep it that way. As a seasoned traveller who enjoys villa holidays, I’m used to being disappointed by scuffed interiors, damaged equipment and the wear and tear you can often find where previous guests have basically not taken great care or villa owners have installed only low cost fittings/equipment because they know it will be poorly treated. None of that applies here. Fixtures and fittings are as good as home or far better. The kitchen is ready for a keen chef with everything you need. The furniture and fabrics are premium. The beds are incredibly comfortable. And everyone is catered for - down to a pool table, bicycles for all the family and a sauna and gym! The villa is well-located for some excellent restaurants, just south west of Monbazillac and close to the beautiful town of Bergerac. We were also impressed by a villa owner and team of staff who go out of their way to help you and prepare the villa for your needs. We will definitely be back, as soon as we are able. This place is special.

Luxury family villa with so many facilities
We visited in October and had a wonderful time exploring the region in beautifully warm weather, but most of all enjoyed staying at Acabanes. It made our holiday so enjoyable because of all the facilities and special touches it has as well as so much choice! We were a party of 4 adults and a preschooler but there was plenty of space for much bigger groups as there are so many different seating areas to eat, sunbathe or rest - we really liked the terraces both ground and first floor! We were upstairs in the Jaune suite which had a really comfortable superking bedroom and our son slept in a twin room next door, and along the corridor our two rooms shared a spacious family bathroom with a freestanding bath and separate glass enclosed power shower. The rooms were very comfortable and immaculately clean with tea facilities and air conditioning. We really liked that all of the bedroom areas were like separate suites so 2 or 3 families could happily share the house without disturbing each others in the morning. In the area there are lots of lovely restaurants and markets so we enjoyed going out in the morning and coming back with fresh produce and to swim in the afternoon. We took the bikes out several times, and it was nice that there were children's bikes that were the right size for our son (hats and locks too), but it was great he could also go in the trailer or a bike seat depending on the weather. Cycling to Loubes-Bernac gave us some good views, exercise and the nearest croissants! The pool has a full length cover which kept lots of heat in for when we pulled it back in the afternoon but we could also swim at dusk with it covered. Our son loved swimming all afternoon, and when he wasn't in the pool there was everything in the expansive garden for him to run between - trampoline, swing set, football, wendy house, sandpit or riding the bike around the garden. It was so nice that there was so much onsite for him to do. As a parent it was really nice in the evenings to be able to play pool or table football, watch a movie from the huge collection (or British tv!) or enjoy the absolute silence in the evenings as it is such a peaceful location. The gas barbecue made for really easy cooking on the terrace, from which the sunsets towards Loubes-Bernac were spectacular. It was really easy to get to Bergerac airport from Stansted and Southampton, renting a car from Bergerac was very quick and we were at the house in under 30 minutes driving through beautiful vineyards. This again was a huge bonus with a young child. We would definitely recommend Acabanes to anyone looking for a comprehensively setup family-friendly villa with a fantastic pool in a beautiful area.

Beautiful location, excellent facilities
We stayed for a week in Acabanes during the October half term. The property is spacious and beautifully furnished, there’s nothing that hasn’t been thought of, even drinks bottles to take on a bike ride. 10 of us cycled on bikes provided and walked to local fabulous restaurants. It’s a beautiful peaceful, location. Swimming featured heavily for us, the cover was really effective at keeping the heat in 😀 thoroughly recommend.

Outstanding holiday Villa
Close to the hamlet of Thenc . Easy twenty minute drive from Bergerac Airport. The Villia is surrounded by vineyards and sunflower fields. The lanes are quiet all around the property so cycling is very pleasurable and bikes for all ages are provided. As well as the villia being so well equipped with something for each member of the family. The swimming pool was a perfect temperature and so well maintained. We enjoyed golf as well as cycling visiting local colourful markets and some great restaurants. All together a great holiday!

Fab villa for families & groups
We spend a week here along with some other families with young kids. The villa is in a great location and is really made by its grounds - so much space for kids to run around, big trampoline and great pool for everyone. Inside it was well equipped - we're used to staying in villas and some facilities being lacking, but everything was provided that we needed. The standard of decor was great and the owners great in trying to make sure we got the most from the place and the area. Lots of nice places to visit nearby, we'd definitely recommend giving it a visit.

Luxury and Golfing Excellence
We visit France annually and discovered Luxury Dordogne Villas a few years ago and am so pleased as I don’t want to stay anywhere else now, they have everything we need for a great holiday. This year we stayed in La Grange for our first week and then we moved to Acabanes for our second week. Acabanes is such a relaxing place to have a holiday, with a heated pool and amazing views. We particularly like staying here as we enjoy golf and Tracey has arranged a large discount on rounds at Chateau Vigiers, a five minute drive away. We fly to France from South Africa and Acabanes has all the golf equipment we need which means we don’t need to bring anything we us, a huge bonus. Looking forward to returning next year!
