Guestbook comments from the owner

We've had a wonderful stay at Le Peyrat.Tracy and Brian are welcoming, kind hosts who are really helpful without being intrusive. We would highly recommend the Saturday market at St Foy le Grande, Lac de Gurson, Etang la Jemaye (beautiful lake, wooded, great wooden play area for children and small beach. Dimitri the chef is a lovely man, speaks good English, fab food at great prices and is very flexible. He provided us with some delicious meals after a quick chat to arrange a menu. We will certainly be recommending Le Peyrat to our friends.

A great place for a family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent family holiday. The children enjoyed the large heated pool, trampoline and tree house. The adults also enjoyed the pool as well as the outdoor seating. The chef was very pleasant. We tried and liked both of his menus. Sadly the village bakery was closed but Tracy says they hope to have a new one soon. The lake wasn’t open for swimming when we visited.

Fabulous place - even better than our first visit!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to this farmhouse. Our first visit was back in 2012 and in the five years between visits Tracy and Brian have continued to make enhancements to the property (particularly outside). The property is spacious and clean and has all the equipment you could possibly want. The property is well equipped with families and children in mind. Our party of 12 had 4 young children between the ages of 10 months and 6 years old and there was plenty to keep them occupied and in a safe environment (The pool is fenced and alarmed and the gardens are all fenced off).

The local village is small and quiet with a local restaurant which has just reopened and was beautiful. We ate there on a couple of occasions. Tracy phoned and made reservations for us when all the party wanted to go together.

Just a short drive away Lac de Gurson has received a huge investment and offers free canoeing, use of the beach, walks and a really nice children's play area.

Tracy and Brian are lovely hosts, are available should you need them whilst letting you get on and enjoy your holiday in peace. We certainly hope to return for a third time soon!

Supern family accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Le Peyrat is the most perfect family holiday home we have found in France over the past 6 years.

It is in a beautiful rural area , close to a lovely village and a few minutes away from Lac de

Gurson with its stunning beach ,playpark and wooded walks.

The many plus points for us included the beautifully heated pool( a must for us) surrounded by sunbeds and a palm-fringed cabana ; the trampoline and tree house and sand pit and scooters and toys and swing and boules and badminton which were great for kids; the English TV and couches for evening relaxation which were great for the adults and the many varied and beautiful outside shaded areas in the huge garden which were there to enjoy. The interior of the house is as gorgeous as the pictures show.

Tracy and Brian are great hosts and were like family to us , always on hand to help with anything at all , though never intrusive so we could pretend the house was our own!

In all ... a home from home and

absolutely five star. Thankyou Tracy and Brian

This property is stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Le Peyret lived up to all our expectations -it was very clean, beautifully furnished, the en suites were brilliant, the place was well maintained and the owners were lovely! They were very helpful in information given and sorted out the chef to cook a meal for us one evening. Although in a rural setting so very peaceful, there were lots of amenities close by. The pool was a great asset and the grandchildren spent many happy hours in it along with the adults! I would recommend this property to anyone - it was easy to book and pay for!

Beautiful, ideal for all ages and excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5

'The whole family had a wonderful holiday at the very peaceful and spacious Le Peyrat.

There is plenty of interior and exterior space and the entire accommodation is well equipped for both children and adults. 5 en-suite bathrooms is great bonus. Perfect for a large family party but with little hideaways if you want a bit of quiet time.

The pool is safely gated and alarmed which is reassuring, and you can still enjoy the outdoors under shelter if it rains.

The youngest of our party is 4 and our eldest 80, and we all enjoyed our stay thoroughly in equal measures.

If you are willing to drive 45 minutes or more, Bergerac town was excellent and we absolutely loved St Emilion.

The owners live next door and were happy to inform and recommend upon request. The house was clean and ready upon our arrival and they own a selection of adorable and friendly animals.

We would have no hesitation in recommending this rental to all age groups and parties wishing to enjoy the beautiful Bergerac.'
