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.

Excellent cottage in private own grounds
We stayed for one week, wish we could have been there longer. The cottage is is very well equipped and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. It has a super pool set in a large garden which is completely private. The only noise we heard was the birds singing and trees swaying.in the breeze. This property is very rural and away from any main road. The thick walls of the cottage keep it cool in summer and the beams give the property a lovely character We would certainly return as this was one of the best holiday let's we have had

Peaceful hideaway
Just back from a fortnight in Les Chauses - lovely weather, super pool and well equipped cottage. Plenty to do nearby, kayaking down the Dronne and nearby caves were our highlight, plus the local towns of Brantome and Bourdeilles. But for most of the time, we didn't stray too far from the pool! Thoroughly recommended.

Beautiful, relaxing location
Gorgeous location surrounded by beautiful, rolling countryside. Perfect for cycling (bikes and locks provided) and walking. Interesting, furnished chateau in Bourdeilles with great views of the river. Swimming pool a real bonus. Accommodation first rate - clean, well equipped, with good showers.

Mrs
Spent a wonderful 2 weeks here. The locality is beautiful and very peaceful. The cottage was impeccably clean and had everything we needed. The pool is stunning and looked after by Ron who comes twice a week to tend it. Bourdeilles is only a 5 min drive and Brantome only 15 mins. Would highly recommend this cottage and we will certainly be back

Wish we could have stayed longer!
A beautiful and very relaxing stay at les Chauses. We stayed for a week but really we would have loved another week. The weather was scorching, in the 30's in May! The area is so quiet and peaceful, we were amazed by the amount of stars you can see at night. We took our bikes (although you can hire them here) it is a fantastic area to cycle around as the roads are so quiet and there are many restaurants within a close distance. We went to the Moulin du Pont in Lisle (took the long way round) the position on the river is beautiful and they even have their own trout on the menu. The house was very clean and the kitchen has everything you would need. I would certainly recommend the property and hope to be back again next year!

Perfect getaway from everything property
Perfect getaway from everything. It has everything you need including a fantastic pool. The temperature was in the 30s so it was well used. Plenty of wildlife.The bathrooms are good and the en-suite one is particularly good. The area is brilliant ,very rural but not far to go to Bourdeilles and Brantome which has a brilliant market. The bikes you can hire are very good. Would thoroughly recommend this place if you want a relaxing holiday. We have just booked again for next year.

Best French holiday cottage
5 of us including our teenage daughter and our 2 dogs stated here recently for 2 weeks. We have stayed at many French holiday homes over the last 15 years and Les Chauses was one of the best! A great pool, lovely peaceful surroundings, comfortable beds and furniture, a big TV and the bathrooms had what my wife described as the best showers! The dogs loved the space and some great dog walks around. We will return! Thanks.

Great farmhouse, garden and pool - we loved it
Travelled with husband, 2 children and two adult friends. A great farmhouse, with lovely pool and garden. Very spacious and well equipped. In a peaceful and beautiful location. One of the best rentals we have ever had and would return.

Most Wonderful Place
We have returned back to Wales after we spent the most wonderful 2 weeks staying in Les Chauses.......Peaceful, Relaxing and Beautiful accommodation, extremely well equipment and comfortable. We felt at home as soon as we arrived and couldn't believe how beautiful it was....really didn't want to leave. Sat out every morning for breakfast after a short journey for bread from Bourdeilles village, went daily to the village for our 1 year old lab to have a swim in the river (she loved it!!) she loved waking every morning being able to wonder around the extensive gardens and play with sticks. The pool was bliss, especially in the heat during our second week, Ron came twice a week to clean the pool and was at the end of the phone if we needed anything, which to be fair we didn't. Both Ron & Sonia are lovely people and are there is you need them and wouldn't dream of imposing themselves on you. Good place to stay as you are close to everything, Brantome, Periguex and many others, Restaurants all welcome dogs. Kayaking on the Dronne 'Allo Caneos' spoke english well, really good fun for all the family. Seriously would recommend a stay to anyone. Hoping to go back again...just wish we hadn't had to leave. PS Wifi is excellent and worked with all our mobiles and tablets including iPhones.

About the neighbourhood
Les Chauses is ideally located for discovering this beautiful region of southwest France. You will find on the edge of a small hamlet, just 5 minutes from Bourdeilles and only fifteen minutes drive from Brantome. Bourdeilles is located in a picturesque setting on the river Dronne, and has a medieval and Renaissance chateau, fine restaurants and shops including a boulangerie. Canoes can be hired at Bourdeilles for a relaxing glide along the river (a favourite with adults and children). Brantome is a picturesque, medieval town completely encircled by the river Dronne. Visitors to the town are captivated by its beauty, history and architecture. The Benedictine Abbey built by Charlemagne in 769 and the Church of St Peter with its cloisters dating from the 15thC, are well worth a visit. It is a delight to stroll through the quaint cobbled streets filled with boutiques and shops and dine in the many restaurants. Sip wine on a riverside terrace and watch the world go by, especially on a Friday, when it is market day. The river is calm and gentle at this point, covered with lilies, and sheltered by weeping willows. A walk along the edge of the river ending with a picnic in the gardens is a favourite with locals and tourists alike. Enjoy a leisurely boat trip or follow one of the trails through the surrounding wooded hills. Perigueux, the capital city of the Dordogne, has Roman and medieval remains, lots of town centre shops, great restaurants and a daily food market. St Jean de Cole, one of the most beautiful villages in France has a yearly plant and flower festival in May. Villars is famous for its abbey and prehistoric caves. Hautefort's chateau is the most impressive in the Dordogne. Sorges has an interesting truffle museum. Jumilhac Le Grande with its fairytale chateau offers a lovely photo opportunity. St Emilion and Bordeaux, if you don't mind a drive, offer wine tasting and vineyard tours. If you fancy stocking up your wine supply you will be spoilt for choice and have experts on hand to advise.
