“Beautiful gite in wonderfully peaceful Dordogne countryside” Beautiful gite that has been so thoughtfully designed and equipped. Brian and Hilary (and not forgetting Lily the dog) made us feel extremely welcome and at ease from the moment we arrived. Wonderful welcome hamper to greet us with some lovely local wine cooling in the fridge - just what was needed on a hot August day!
The gite had everything you could wish for which made our stay so relaxing, just a shame it was only for one week.
Location was also excellent, in a lovely peaceful rural setting with views across the hills but also close enought to some great villages and towns perfect for trips to market and for dinner in the evening. Proximity to Bergerac airport is also a plus.
“Wonderfully relaxed area and barn is excellent value in lovely wooded area” The barn itself offers spacious accommodation with many facilities and all in a beautiful and peaceful area. You can eat out from expensively to relatively cheaply depending upon tastes and the beautiful old town of Brantome is within 8 miles and is known as the "Venice of France" with justification. The local town of Bourdeilles is only 3 to 4 mile away and offers a variety of eating places but relatively little in terms of self catering shopping. We go into Brantome most days and sample the cafes, shops and local atmosphere. Lunch is then an almost endless afternoon of French bread, cheese, pate, red wine followed by French bread .... ( you get the idea! ). We have stayed at the "barn" - beautifully converted - on several occasions and thoroughly recommend it to anyone wanting a peaceful and relaxing holiday.
