"A little piece of heaven in SW France"

We travelled to this gite after a couple of really enjoyable but tiring days in Bordeaux. Karen and Andy were SO welcoming and we were touched that they had worried about us as we arrived a lot later than we had planned. The gite is perfect-roomy,well equipped, fantastic pool and a cool place to seek refuge from the very hot weather we had. The kids both loved it (14 year old girl and 12 year old boy) with the pool and the very comfy hammock being the highlights.
Lots to do in the surrounding area and excellent advice on tap from Karen and Andy.
Bikes provide a more sedate way of spotting your dream house in this picturesque part of France.
If only I already knew my holiday weeks for next year we would not hesitate in a repeat booking!
Thank you so much Karen and Andy (the kids are missing Dillon, Henry, Titch, Max, Ruby, Filou and the pony already!!!)

Many thanks for your kind review we are so please that you found Borie nice and relaxing and look forward to seeing you again - thank-you!

A much needed holiday for my wife and I, Gite Borie is the perfect place to come and relax and unwind, a lovely part of France, lots to do and see or just chill by the pool.

The Gite is more spacious that we anticipated and the bed was very comfortable.

Karen & Andy are the perfect owners. They are around if needed, but not, if not required.
The Gite is very well equipped and is not overlooked and we felt at home straightaway. We were spoilt by the privacy and quiet of the view of the horses, paddocks and forest.

At night we could star gaze, which we no longer seem to see in the UK......A wonderful holiday for us both to recharge our batteries, we will return!

Mr & Mrs McGready

Many thanks for your kind review we look forward to seeing you again :-)

"Fantastic well equipped gite in a peaceful and tranquil location"

Borie was by far the best Gite we have stayed at in France. Very clean and well presented, decorated,equipped and spacious with good sized bedrooms (and very comfortable beds with good quality bedlinen). The outside terrace with metal covered gazebo overlooking the pool was perfect for staying in the shade, watching the boys in the pool and eating outside. Gas Fired BBQ was absolutely fantastic and something we would definately recommend for other gite owners looking at this but also for guests! Private Pool was a good size and benefitted from direct access and visibility from the gite - unlike some other gites we have stayed at. Dogs are welcome with prior agreement which is very helpful to us but no smells or evidence - proof that dogs and pets can be accommodated with no problem and that there are responsible pet owners out there aswell!!! Would definately go back and recommend with no hesitation.

Many thanks for you kind review - really appreciated and very helpful - Thank-you!
