“Best Gite in last 10 years”
Excellent property with great grounds and pool situated close to Duras. Ideal for our group of four adults and two teenagers. All the bedrooms are a good size with plenty of storage space. The main living areas are light and airy with comfortable seating. The Wifi was a must for two teenage girls who NEEDED to keep in touch with England. The accommodation is incredibly well maintained (by Dave and Chris who were really helpful and friendly). The local area has multiple opportunities for visiting restaurants, chateaus and night markets. We loved every minute and will hopefully return next year.
“Ideal Gite near Duras”
Colombine near Duras is perfect for tranquillity and escaping from the rat race. Set amidst rolling fields, woods and vinyards with an excellent pool and surround, the three bedrooms and two bathrooms and spacious living areas spell plenty of room for groups of six or that all important capacity for visitors if, like us, you are a couple on a long let (we stayed Jan/March) with visitors flying over from England. Bergerac airport is only a 30 min drive away. Restaurants abound (in season) and Bordeaux a 90 min drive or train it from Marmande of Ste Foy La Grande (free station parking!). Excellent base for Lot et Garonne and forays up the Dordogne.
“Quiet location, vineyards and sunflower fields, modern comforts.”
Three of us spent a week at Columbine. The cottage was faultless with every comfort including a swimming pool. Wine Cave, Artisan bread maker within a short distance. We had a very relaxing time in an area of outstanding beauty. Would definitely like to visit again.
Had a most memorable holiday at Colombine celebrating my 50th birthday. The weather was changeable but when the sun came out it was beautiful. We particularly enjoyed Chateau de Duras and a visit to Monpazier. Our son is wheelchair dependent and we found this Gite to be most suitable...even having the bed raised for our son - very helpful. We hope to return next year.
“Another memorable holiday”
This was our second visit to Colombine and once again we appreciated the layout of the property and its tranquil location. Our daughter, who is disabled and relies on use of a power chair, enjoyed the freedom afforded by the level surfaces both inside and outside the cottage. Unfortunately we were not blessed with particularly good weather during our stay but nevertheless found the comfortable sitting areas ideal for reading and playing games. We also purchased plenty of local produce and made good use of the well equipped kitchen. Overall a very welcoming and pleasing holiday home.
“Everything we could have wished for.”
Wanted to keep it to ourselves, but that would be selfish. Owner very efficient and friendly re. doing the booking. Happy to answer silly questions. The gite is very clean and well managed by Chris and Dave who live locally. It is extremely comfortable and beautifully situated.
“Perfect family accommodation!!!!!!!!!”
Our holiday to France was our first family holiday with our 4 year old boy and 2 year old girl. It was certainly one to remember and the children had an amazing time not least because of the pool. It was the entire focus of their attention from cleaning it to swimming in it even though it was cold they out on their wet suits and jumped in. The house was beautiful and a real home from home. It was superb being on one level with small children and the large bathroom was a bonus. The house is beautifully positioned in a very quiet area surrounded by wheat fields and plenty of lawn for running off all that excess energy. Locally there are some lovely towns and villages but if you just want to relax and play Colombine is the place to do it. Whatever your requirements you will not be disappointed. We weren't and would love to return one day soon.
“Heaven on earth!”
I spent a blissful week from 5 -12 May at Colombine and really didn't want to leave. It was everything I had hoped for and more, in that it exceeded my expectations. It was every bit as beautiful and tasteful as the photos portrayed, if not better. The communication with the owners prior to booking was very efficient and friendly and specific instructions, such as where to buy food supplies en route on a Sunday and directions from the airport, were spot on. The cottage itself is so pretty and charming it really is pure chocolate box; it was also a highly practical living space, spotlessly clean and had everything I needed for a restful holiday. The kitchen is quirky and full of character and extremely well equipped and the bedroom I stayed in was wonderfully comfortable, as was the lounge area. I had the woodburner going on two nights when I chose to stay in and the room was fabulously cosy. I was on my own but it would be superb for 6 adults or a family as the other two bedrooms were spacious and the cottage itself so brilliantly designed you wouldn't feel on top of each other in any of the rooms. The bathroom facilities were perfectly thought out and the small utility room had all the equipment you would need for washing, ironing, cleaning etc, should any of that be necessary. There are countless TV channels to choose from - and WI-FI - but that's only if you can bear to tear yourself away from the garden. The terrace, covered in a magnificent purple wisteria is stunning and the whole garden is immaculately kept and beautiful to walk round or just sit in and admire. There are fruit and nut trees in, and vines around the property, and a wealth of wildlife to be heard and admired. The lighting inside and out has been very well thought out and both access around the propperty, and security, is excellent. The Property's managers, a Yorkshire couple, live in the next village and were very friendly and helpful. Not that I needed anything at all in addition to what I already had. I have stayed in numerous gites and holiday cottages in France and in the UK and can honestly say that this is my all time favourite. I would live there if I could. Rachel Davies Leicestershire
“Idyllic Cottage in Beautiful Rural France.”
Delightful, comfortable cottage well renovated, very spacious and fully equiped. Well kept gardens and complete privacy. Set in rolling countryside with many pretty bastide villages to explore and slightly further afield is the beautiful town of Bergerac. Living close by is the property manager, who appeared promptly to attend to a minor query. Perfect retreat to enjoy the French countryside either on foot or by car.
“Colombine exceeded our expectations”
We had a delightful week at Colombine and thoroughly enjoyed the tranquility of the location and the comfort afforded by the property. Our daughter uses a powered wheelchair and found the layout well suited to her requirements - she used the chair both inside and outside without difficulty. The property was equipped to a high standard and well maintained. We did not venture far afield during our stay as the weather was kind so we relaxed in the garden and made good use of the pool. The local supermarket in Duras was very adequate for basic shopping and the Monday market provided some good local vegetables. A highly recommended property.
