"A beautiful house in a beautiful area"
We have just got back from a week's stay in this beautiful house and there really is nothing I can add to comments already made by previous reviewers, except they are all true.. Tracy has designed a really beautiful house, but its also very welcoming and warm, you feel at home as soon as you arrive. Tracy and Brian met us and true to their word were available if you needed them but invisible if you didn't. Tracy really goes that extra mile to help and an example of that is when we asked for directions to St Emilion and she lent us her Satnav, programmed with the Vineyard we were visiting plus the town. Tracy really wants her guests to have a good holiday and it shows in all the little touches around the house, from the information book, the well equiped kitchen and nursery, the tree house for the children(which has a little play kitchen inside)the pool area and the beautiful garden.We will certainly recommend it to our family and friends. Many thanks Tracy

"Excellent family accommodation for a large group in a delightful area of France"
We had a fabulous week in Le Peyrat in May 2012 with our family which included four under 5's. The house and garden are very well equipped for children and ours loved it, especially the tree house, the pool, and the vast amount of toys which all kept them constantly amused. The garden is delightful and has many areas where you can escape for some peace and quiet should you wish to, places to sit and read, or enjoy a quiet drink.
The boules pitch was enjoyed by us too, and I must mention Dimitri, the chef who will cook a meal and bring to the house, it was delicious, great value, and we highly recommend him. Altogether this is an excellent base for discovering this delightful area of France; we visited Saint Emilion and Bergerac; the local market at Montpon was great to stroll around and try some local delicacies, and of course excellent local wine to be consumed.
Thanks Tracy and Brian, great hosts and very willing to help with any questions you may have.

"Fantatastic house with wonderful gardens - a great getaway"
We stayed a week in le Peyrat with our three children (12, 10, 7) and had a fantastic time. Le Peyrat is a very spacious house with loads of room to move around and a well stocked kitchen. A generous welcome pack was a nice touch that you don't get in every house. The gardens are extensive and very relaxing, there was plenty of room for the kids to run around, climb the new tree house or use the swings, without bothering us too much on the deck. Tracey and Brian were excellent hosts - there to greet us and show us around, but although living on site you wouldn't know it otherwise, unless you go looking for them. Nice selection of books and DVDs, as well as satellite tv, kept everybody happy. Good beds and linen for sleeping in. The little village of St Martin de Gurson has a bar and a boulangerie, and there is a good Inter Marche at Montpon, less than a 10 minure drive away. All in all, a great week, very peaceful and very enjoyable.

"Fantastic Gite - great holiday had by us all"
There was 9 of us on holiday for 2 weeks (including a 4 year old and a 1 year old). We all had a great holiday. Brian and Tracy have got the balance of being there if needed, but not intruding in any way. They are also willing to arrange wine tasting / on site chef etc if asked. There were some really nice touches for the children ie. toys and the tree house. The pool is brilliant and there is everything you could ask for in the house.
The village is only a five minute walk from the accommodation and offers a couple of shops for the basics, as well as a bar which is very friendly that also offers food. Within a ten minute drive there is a large hypermarket offerering everything you will need for a self catering holiday.
A car is a necessity but this enables you to visit some beautiful towns and villages in the surrounding area.
We would definitely recommend this Gite and we are likely to be re-booking for another year - Thank you Brian and Tracy for helping us have a great holiday.
