"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.

This property was dirty
No hot water for three days
Dirty floors
Damp in down stairs batheroom
Dirty bathrooms
dirty toilet
No toaster
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

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
