"An ideal location for quite holiday with good fishing"
We have just come back from spending four weeks at this GIte, we had great weather with sun every day during our stay, The cottage is in very quite location and was clean and very well equipped.
I enjoy fishing and the lake provided me with an excellent opportunity for practice with my biggest fish been a 17 lb carp and lots of other fish caught during our stay
Lindsey & Keith made us very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed our visit, we certainly plan to visit again in the future.

"Relaxing tranquil retreat"
I recently enjoyed a wonderful relaxing restful stay at les trois chenes! Our hosts Lindsay and Keith were amazing always on hand if we needed them but yet gave us our privacy! The gite is a beautiful home away from home set in a beautiful tranquil setting. I can highly recommend this gite for anyone looking for a relaxing restful time out of the rat race. We will definitely be back

"Perfect place to relax"
We stayed 10 days in this very well equipped and clean gite where we felt very much at home thanks to the excellent hosts Lindsay and Keith who were always very helpful. We had a great time fishing in the lake and relaxing in the beautiful quiet garden away from it all but also managed to do some sightseeing. Thank you to Lindsay and Keith for a very enjoyable holiday.

"So Peaceful and Comfortable. Highly recommended"
From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed, The owners Lindsay and Keith make you feel the place is yours even though they are only next door if you need anything. The Gite is very comfortable, perfectly clean and well equipped. The welcome pack was all local produce and most gratefully received. This is the first time I've felt inclined to write a TripAdvisor review but was so impressed with such a beautiful place and had such a nice time the owners deserved it. Their property covers about 30 acres with a fantastic fishing lake, I'm not a fisherman but I can understand why they would want to sit there all day. I'm an amateur photographer and I was in my element with the wonderful countryside and wildlife.
I look forward to my next visit.

"Comfortable, quiet & well appointed gite in the middle of the countryside."
From the minute we arrived Lindsay & Keith made us feel very welcome. Their lovely gite was very well appointed and very comfortable with good quality furniture and fittings and extremely clean. Set in the middle of their large 'estate' of some 30 acres there was plenty of wildlife to see, deer, numerous birds including buzzards and other birds of prey and with a lake containing a variety of carp up to 10 kg there was plenty to do and see. With the vineyards of the St Emilion region just down the road and the well known beauty spots along the Dordogne not much further away there is something for everyone here.

"A most peaceful, special place to stay."
We arrived at the gite early in the afternoon after travelling across France for 12 hours. We were very tired but immediately the beautiful gite and the surrounding grounds relaxed us straight away. The owners Lindsay and Keith had thoughtfully left us provisions so we could have lunch and relax. Our stay in the gite was very relaxing, there was no noise at all except for birdsong. Lindsay and Keith were fantastic hosts never intrusive but always there to help and give information if needed. We stayed 6 days but really regretted not booking for longer as there was so much we did not have time to visit.
I would certainly recommend this vacation rental to all our friends and family. Thanks Lindsay and Keith it was fantastic and we had a fantastic and memorable break.
