"Charming, peaceful, and comfortable"

My husband, nine-year-old daughter and I stayed at Puy Navard for three nights after flying into Paris, taking a train to Brive-la-Gaillarde, and then renting a car to drive to Lanouaille. The weather… More

"A really relaxing holiday in beautiful countryside"

The hosts Pat & Chris made you feel welcome as soon as you arrived and were really helpful throughout our stay.

The cottage fulfilled all our expectations and more and even the cats became part of our holiday.

The surrounding area has many historical unspoilt towns and villages and seems untainted by tourism.

Ideal for those who enjoy peaceful surroundings, friendly atmosphere and varied opportunities to explore the French countryside and way of life.

We would definitely hope to go there again.

"Lovely, well equipped house in beautiful surroundings"

We stayed here with our young baby in July 2013 and had a great time. The house itself is really well equipped, clean and tidy and in a great location. It also has a lovely garden with table and chairs so you can eat outside. Its remote so the peace and quiet is lovely but its just a short drive to local shops etc and its in a good location for exploring the northern part of the Dordogne. On our trip we visited lots of different places, Brantome, Sarlat and the local lake/beach. The weather was fantastic, apart from a very exciting thunderstorm on our last night (which was quite fun actually!).

The owners Pat and Chris were so welcoming, giving us a starter pack of breakfast things etc and also providing lots of toys and other baby equipment for our 6 month old son. The extra touches and effort taken made us feel really welcome so we would definitely recommend this to others.

"Hospitable hosts, beautiful part of France"

Pat and Chris made us all feel very welcome. The range of activities in the area was very varied, from an excellent wildlife park a 40 minute drive away, a fabulous lake, beach and waterski facility ten minutes away, through to caves and several Chateaux all within a 30 minute drive. All this despite the property feeling to be very quiet and remote. Pat and Chris' gite has the perfect blend of peace and quiet yet with civilization within easy reach (Lanouaille 10 mins by car with a small supermarket, boulangeries and a chemist etc or 20 mins or so to St Yrieix La Perche, a lovely small town with more facilities including bigger supermarkets and shops selling the famous Limoges pottery). If you want to sit back and chill, or have busy days, this gite offers the perfect mix. I highly recommend the property and its hosts - their 'get you in pack' of basics was a blessing when arriving after the shops had closed!
