The Aquitaine / Dordogne / Dordogne region
Le Berme is situated on the border of the Dordogne and Lot-et-Garonne, the 'Tuscany of France'. The area is well known for its hot summer climate, stunning countryside, vineyards, chateaux, medieval hilltop villages with their lively markets, brocants and summer fairs, and of course the local gastronomical specialities of foie gras, duck, prunes and the locally produced domaine wines. There are championship standard golf courses within 1/2 hour's drive.
Le Berme offers a truly relaxing holiday in stunning landscaped gardens surrounded by woodland with many rare varieties of trees. Le Berme borders a 'grande randonnee' or pilgrims' route, a well trodden path stretching from Belgium to Spain offering a number of marked routes for walking, horseriding or cycling. There is an abundance of wildlife including deer, red squirrels, green frogs and a variety of birds; hoopoe, red kite, eagle, buzzards, woodpeckers and our own resident long eared owls (Sep-April)

We stayed at Le Berme mid July, Gerry and Steve couldn't have been more friendly (without being intrusive) and helpful. Their gite is fab, and is infact much nicer in real life than in the photos. They have fabulous gardens, which they allow you to go anywhere within. We were there with 2 boys, 5 and 6 and they loved the heated pool, infact they spent about 8 hours a day in there!! It was my husbands 40th when we were there and Gerry booked us a table in the local restaurant for us and when I emailed her and asked her if she could arrange a cake for him, she had already done it!!!
I can not recommend this property enough, if you are thinking of booking it then do it!
I would say it is great for a relaxing holiday although there is plenty to do outwith but with the beautiful gardens and it is so peaceful, it was a real struggle to drag ourselves away,and we are not normally hanging around types of people but this time we did stay by the pool most days!

Set in acres of beautiful grounds where wildlife came to your doorstep. Le Berme is the most preaceful and pretty gite we have ever stayed in. The pool was fabulous and the interior of the gite was comfortable and clean with very comfortable beds and all amenities.
Gerry and Steve were the perfect hosts, hospitable and helpful without being intrusive. Wonderful area for exploring chateaus and finding pretty bastide villages with their beautiful cobbled streets and individual shops.
I cannot find a bad word to say about Le Berme, we found it to be perfect in every way. You must have a car though to make the most of the surrounding area.
