Guestbook comments from the manager

"We spend a wonderful 2 weeks at Le Verger with guests from 3 to 87 years old. The house was beautifully decorated and stocked with equipment for our stay by owners who clearly take pride in their property. The housekeeper was very accommodating and responded to any request very swiftly - as well as being a font of knowledge on the area. This is definitely the type of holiday home you would want to visit again - or own yourself!"

Peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings

  • 4 of 5

We had a week with three generations sharing this lovely, spacious house and gardens. There was a good-sized pool, table tennis and terrace for eating out. The rooms were all generous and comfortable. The only criticism was that the bedrooms on the first floor became very hot and it was difficult to cool them down, which meant that the babies had trouble sleeping. However, that said, I would happily come back again for a longer stay.

Owner's Response: Dear Naomi. Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay at Le Verger. We are delighted that you had such a wonderful time. We are also pleased to advise that the owner is planning on installing air conditioning in the upstairs bedrooms over the winter as they appreciate that they can be uncomfortable to sleep in for some people when the weather is hot. Thanks again and we hope that we can help with your holiday plans in the future. Kind regards, David & Tracy.

Beautiful house and garden in rural setting

  • 5 of 5

House was beautiful, well-equipped and ticked all our boxes. Garden was lovely, full of breeding birds and Bill & Elaine v attentive at keeping pool spotless. Excellent walks and cycles from the house. Very much the sort of place we like.

Interesting local towns with bastides, castles etc. Several good markets in nearby towns, well stocked Intermarche only few miles away.

We would certainly stay at Le Verger again and would recommend to others.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

The house has been beautifully maintained and is well equipped with all essential amenities. The property is very clean. Bill and Elaine were superb, they went above and beyond to ensure we were well looked after. Bill arrived every morning to change the pool filter and the pool was kept immaculately cleaned every day for our use. I would highly recommend La Verger to anyone.

A lovely quiet place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Very nice quiet, gite and well maintained and equipped, especially as the weather was indifferent. We went on the Bergerac wine tasting tour which was excellent and one evening had the service of After Eight to cook us supper, both good value for money and thoroughly enjoyable.

Beautiful french villa with amazing garden space

  • 5 of 5

We loved the villa and would definitely consider going back there. The grounds are fantastic and our boys and the men were able to play football, cricket and lots of other activities. It was great having table tennis too and the pool all really nicely placed. The village nearby had a great festival one evening and the people who look after the villa live few hundred yards away and were happy to help us with any thing we needed.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Bergerac (Bordeaux 124km) at 32 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Lauzun at 4 Kilometres Nearest Train : Bergerac (Bordeaux 124km) at 32 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Lauzun at 4 Kilometres Car: necessary

Situated near the towns of Eymet (8km) and Miramont de Guyenne (5km) in the region of Aquitaine within the Bordeaux wine region and on the border of the Dordogne, Gironde and Lot et Garonne, France.

The nearest shops are located at Miramont de Guyenne where there are also tennis courts available to hire.

Bordeaux is approximately 1 hour 30 minutes drive drive to the west and Bergerac is 30 minutes to the north, St Emilion 45 minutes north west.

This is the ideal base from which to explore South West France. Located in the region of Aquitaine on the 3 borders of Gironde / Dordogne / Lot et Garonne and is considered to be one of the most picturesque areas of France.

The gently rolling countryside is a pleasure to explore, with excellent roads winding their way through fields and vineyards. Perfect cycling country!

The local towns have a good selection of shops including cafes, bars, restaurants and grocery stores.

The market squares are also hosts the many festivals and events throughout the year.

Wine and Gastronomy:

The Bordeaux wine region has 21 appellations. Visit some of the many local Caves and Chateau who offer free tastings and tours while you choose a bottle or two.

Not to be missed is the world famous St Emilion, just a short drive away. A designated world heritage site and is truly stunning. Explore characteristic narrow lanes lined with wine merchants, cafes, restaurants and interesting independent shops. A guided tour of the monolithic church is highly recommended.

Follow Rick Steins French Odyssey (Bordeaux to Bazas) trail across this region and encounter some of the best culinary experiences France has to offer.

Bordeaux:

This designated world heritage site is a must for all visitors. This cosmopolitan city offers a diverse range of attractions. The golden triangle has a fabulous range of shops for those shopaholics.

A rich variety of architecture forms the backdrop for the street cafe's, restaurants, bars and not forgetting the superb Grand Theatre.

Dordogne:

The Dordogne is just one of the many places to visit for day trips. Anything from Canoeing or boat trips on the Dordogne river to exploring ancient villages.

Markets:

Most villages and towns hold weekly markets full of fresh and interesting local produce. An ideal place to pick up your holiday mementoes and gifts. Issigeac on a Sunday morning is a popular market to visit set in this lovely medieval town.

Activities:

Cycling

The countryside around Le Verger is perfect for cycling, whether it's just a gentle ride around to explore, or if you are a keen cyclist, a long training ride on fantastic stretches of road to get the blood pumping whilst taking in the fantastic views.

Canoeing and kayaking:

Canoe hire is available on the local rivers. The river Dropt winds through the valley with a slow flow on it, whilst the large river Garonne is just 20 minutes away.

The Dordogne river is an hour away which has a faster pace but has plenty of canoe hire opportunities. You can literally just go with the flow and be picked up further down stream, of course the easiest way is a boat trip and let some one else do the work!

Beaches:

The Atlantic coast, with over 150 miles of golden sandy beaches is less than 2 hours drive away. Great fun for all the family, simply relax and soak up the sun or try your hand at surfing. Alternatively there are also fresh water lakes with a beach and facilities, the nearest is at Blasimon (about 30 minutes drive) and is very popular with families.

Golf:

There are many pay and play golf courses within the area, the best being the beautiful Chateau Des Vigiers Golf and Country Club. The chateau dates back to 1597 and is set in 450 acres of stunning countryside. Facilities also include a fine restaurant and relaxing beauty spa.
