Why David & Tracy HolidayCottagesandVillas chose Entre Deux Mers

Babeau is in an a great location, quiet and away from it all with great views but still only 3 miles from 2 ancient small towns with al amenities you would wish, of course great wines grown all around. There is a lovely small bar just a short walk away, any excuse to go and have an ice cream or a glass of wine...

A Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family holiday at Babeau. Easily found yet remote enough not to be bothered by anyone. The view of vineyards and plum orchards from the swimming area is wonderful. Duras and Monsegur are close enough and there is lots to do in the area however we just relaxed and did very little. The house is well equipped and the dishwasher a godsend. All in all a brilliant family holiday.

restful, clean and inviting

  • 5 of 5

We were there with our 5 grown up children. The house was spacious and meticulously clean when we arrived. there is plenty of ground within the gardens for everyone to lose themselves if they so wish, but we tended to gravitate around the pool. You need a car to get there and to get around.

Fabulous gite- pictures don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this place really don't do it justice! It is a beautifully maintained home that is spacious, clean and well equipped. Beds were extremely comfortable and the bedrooms are all large and spacious. There are plenty of bathrooms and ample hot water with good water pressure. Living space is vast and well equipped with comfortable seating and loads of dining space. Not that we used it much spending most of our time outside by the pool and eating at the large table on the shaded terrace.

The pool is great and the garden complete with plum orchard and kids climbing frame and swings kept the kids happy with loads of room to run around and explore. We were 2 families of 4 (with 4 kids between us aged 3 to 7) plus another couple and we easily had enough of our own space not to feel like we were living on top of each other.

The area is beautiful and the local town, Duras, has a chateau that both kids and adults enjoyed exploring, and there's plenty going on in the summer (markets, night markets, festivals) if you can tear yourself away from the peace and quiet of the pool and garden. Canoeing on the Dordogne was fun and just a short drive away.

Great service from the owners including prompt return of the security deposit.

Owner's Response: Dear Rebecca. Thank you for your absolutely wonderful review of Babeau, we are thrilled that you had such an amazing time and enjoyed exploring all the attractions of the local area as well as some rest and relaxation at the house. Babeau was the first property that we professionally managed for the owners who continually invest in the house and we are proud to have it in our portfolio, they will also be delighted to read your feedback. We are due to update the photo's at the end of the season and hope that we can get across how beautiful and spacious it really is, but nothing can beat experiencing it personally. It's been a pleasure helping you with your holiday booking this year and we hope that we can look after you again in the future. Kind regards, David & Tracy.

Maison très agréable, conforme à la présentation

  • 4 of 5

Je confirme que nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans une maison très confortable, piscine à bonne température avec le beau temps, verger très agréable avec des cerises délicieuses.

Ma seule réserve concerne le paiement du séjour en £ qui implique des frais bancaires importants: 50 €.

Je déplore également le cout prohibitif de mes appels au 118707, votre service commercial.

Il est inadmissible de payer 65€ pour des explications.

Owner's Response: Nous vous remercions de votre avis, nous sommes très heureux que vous ayez apprécié la propriété et ses environs. Nous comprenons vos commentaires sur les frais bancaires, nous précisons que le paiement est en £ Sterling, mais si vous souhaitez rester à la maison, veuillez nous contacter directement et nous serons heureux de prendre des dispositions pour vous de payer en euros. Je crois que les coûts dont vous parlez pour les appels téléphoniques concernent Abritel et nous ne pouvons donc pas commenter. Merci encore une fois, avec nos meilleurs voeux, David & Tracy.
