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.

Stunning cottage in Tremolat
I was lucky enough to win this place for a few nights off Instagram. Karen is a friendly and helpful host. It is a 2 hour drive from Bordeaux Airport. We stayed in the cottage. A beautiful main bedroom upstairs and a further 3 more bedrooms all good sizes. A lovely outside area at back with pool and outside area at the front. Everything is catered for in the cottage. A 20 minute walk into the local villiage. We ate at the bistro, Very tasty French food and friendly staff. There also is a pizzeria. Lots of beautiful walks down the Dordogne River. I highly recommend this place for the location. Thanks Karen. We hope to come back.

Great place for a quiet winter get away
House is an easy 45 min from Bergerac Airport, great for a family city break! Really enjoyed going for long walks in the scenic country side or curling up with a book by the fire looking out onto the wall nut orchard. Can really recommend!

Stylish and Comfortable Holiday Rental
My Husband and i have stayed in many self catering homes in France over the years and this has to be best by far. Fully equipped with everything you need and incredibly comfy beds in three good sized bedrooms. The furnishings are sympathetic to the converted barn and some very stylish touches. The outside space is private, a well needed plunge pool, sun loungers and a good sized table and chairs with a couple of large sun shades too. it overlooks a beautiful walnut grove and the area is peaceful. Tremolat village is about 4 minutes by car or a half hour walk (stroll) at the most. We are familiar with Tremolat hence choosing to stay here, a fabulous place to base yourself to explore the Dordogne and in turn if you just wanted to enjoy the local surroundings and villages there is plenty of choice to keep you occupied. You can drive to a local market every day if you wanted to. Tremolat has a few restaurants or varying prices but all good, and a lovely boulangerie too. And finally Karen the host/owner is warm and friendly, very helpful if you need her and I feel like I’ve made a new friend , we will be back for sure.

The Jewel of the Dordogne
From the first time we heard of this beautiful place to the sad day that we had to leave we were mesmerized by this absolutely stunning part of the world. The cottage and the barn allowed us to move in and live as if we were at home with everything you would need and more. Wonderful evenings by the fireplace and early morning jogs made the stay special and we will definitely be back in the future!! Thank you Karen for such an incredible holiday. You made it very special for us.

Fantastic week in Trémolat
We have just returned from a week staying in Les Chouettes and we could not fault it. We found Karen the owner to be very informative and helpful before we left. The cottage is perfect and well equipped with everything you can think of. Two fridge/freezers, 3 eating areas, laundry room, table tennis, bikes, pool equipment and the WiFi and sky tv were a bonus. The bakery in Tremolat is great for picking up beautiful pastries and there is a handful of other restaurants in the village. We had cars to explore and we went to some beautiful towns and villages. Could not recommend the area more and the cottage is a perfect base from which to explore.

Just spent a wonderful week here the barn has been recently converted into luxury modern accommodation with authentic touches. Two large en-suite bedrooms and large airy living room with fully fitted kitchen. Outside space to sit and eat with plunge pool. 10-15 minutes to walk into village along peaceful roads. Chilled out holiday highly recommend to couples or families. Will book again and recommend to friends.

What an amazing place. First impressions were authentic rustic France with the addition of modern appliances. A perfect combination. We had the top floor room. Wow! It’s a 5* luxury suite. So romantic. Lovely pool area with fab dining and sitting areas. Will definitely rebook for next year.

Dreamy cottage in French Countryside - perfect for a relaxing and scenic getaway
At the end of last year i ventured to this beautiful little cottage in Tremolat with some friends and family. The cottage was idyllic, neat and housed everything we could possibly need to have a smooth transition into the French countryside. Tremolat and its surroundings house beautiful castles, wines, cheese, duck pate and beautiful scenic routes for driving, walking and canoeing. Every night we sat outside and drank wine and ate some of the best cheese and pate, followed by duck cooked on the barbeque. It was the perfect setting to relax and fall in love with the french countryside. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
