Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Les Crécerelles is a restored farm cottage ideally located in the village of Montagrier, between Perigueux and Riberac in the valley of the River Dronne. Set in an elevated position, this south-west facing property enjoys Dronne valley views, yet is within minutes from shops and river walks, a restaurant is just a short appetizing walk away from the cottage.
A private swimming pool is adjacent to the house and the secluded sun terrace. Walnuts can be picked from the tree in the garden, or just relax on the hammocks in its shade. Sunset dining is a must on the terrace after an evening swim. The ever changing landscape views of orchards, sunflower and maize fields below the cottage are a pleasant reminder of French rural life
This charming cottage is equipped with satellite TV, DVD & CD, yet retains its original features and charm. The oak beamed farmhouse kitchen, dining room has a stone fireplace with log burner for those cosy winter nights.

"Gite in pleasant village with an excellent Auberge"
On arrival the exterior of the gite seemed a little run down but on entering the property it was deceptively spacious with a good kitchen, smart lounge and good double bedroom. The downstairs double b… More
We are happy to hear you enjoyed your Holiday and thank you for your constructive comments. It was unfortunate this year that there was a long period of heavy rain in late summer, which prevented much garden maintenance on change over days. The cottage garden is small and grassed, but adequate for its use in supporting the pool terrace. Although there are only two sun loungers there are other seats within the garden and terrace. Off road parking is provided and is sufficient for our Landrover. A programme of works are being carried out in the garden this winter which will lead to new photographs for the 2015 season. The Village Auberge is enjoyed by all of our guests and provides excellent value for money. We hope your are able to return to Les Crecerelles in the future.

"A wonderful relaxing week, the cottage is ideal and perfectly positioned for exploring the beautiful local area."
Les Crecerelles was exactly what we had hoped for. Positioned in a lovely unspoilt village in the Dordogne that has a welcoming Auberge with a tiny shop attached. The weather was magnificent so eating al fresco on the terrace and a splash in the pool a real treat. The house and especially the kitchen were well equipped, a fine collection of DVDs and books, including local attraction guides and we were made to feel welcome by both John and Nina and the locals. We all thoroughly enjoyed our week with visits out to local towns including the lovely Brantome, cycling from the local VTT centre in Montagrier and tennis on the impressive courts in Tocane. A great holiday for everyone.
The guest's kind comments leave us with little to say except a big thank you for your visit.
We hope that your stay was such that you will return to l'Olivier in the future, you will always be welcome

"THIS HOUSE WAS VERY DIRTY"
This property was dirty
No hot water for three days
Damp in down stairs batheroom
the pictures on the web were taken years ago
shutters and front door would not open /close properly
dog poo in garden
Dirt and fluff in the dryer
OWNER OFFERED A FREE WEEK IN ANOTHER GITE THIS WAS NOT ECCEPTABLE.
THEY SENT £100 DISCOUNT, WE ASKED FOR £300.00 IT WAS A REASONABLE REQUEST.
WE COULD GO ON, WE HAD A BAD HOLIDAY HERE.
We are very sorry that this reviewer did not enjoy his time at Les Crécerelles.
The untimely failure of the hot water system was quickly rectified and subsequently found to be caused by the gas supply being contaminated by water, which was outside of our care and control.
We ask all of our guests to inform us without delay of any defects or complaints regarding the property, in order that they can be investigated and rectified. During the guest's stay, no other complaints were received from them.
Only after the guests returned home were we informed of a number of complaints regarding the property. The cottage was by this time reoccupied after a normal housekeeping changeover. The cottage has been fully occupied by numerous guests since and at no time have any subsequent complaints been made.
We believe that the comments left by all of the other guests staying a Les Crécerelles both before this reviewers stay and since, are a better reflection on how we would wish the property to be reviewed. Some of these comments can be seen in the photograph section of the property
