Guestbook comments from the manager

Details: We would like to include this comment in the Guest Book: Nicole and Raymond have a large and beautifully furnished home, approximately a 10 minute drive from the centre of Sarlat. The house was slightly awkward to find on the uphill road from Sarlat, but the drive was worthwhile. Neat gardens, off-street parking, and solitude awaited us. The entire house (including the swimming pool) was spotlessly clean. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, with quality electrical appliances, everything imaginable for our cooking needs, and generous breakfast items. Although Nicole spoke very little English we managed to communicate very well. (The property agent spoke very good English and was able to assist with directions.) Nicole was a very thoughtful, generous and house-proud hostess. We enjoyed our 3 night stay very much and were sorry that we weren't able to stay longer. We would certainly stay at Pech Pinet again, if we ever return to the Dordogne. Merci beaucoup Nicole. From Australia - Irene, David, and Bethany.

Formidable !

  • 5 of 5

We have been travelling to various parts of France for many years, and our stay here was by far the best.

Nicole was very welcoming as well as being discreet and her home is wonderful.

The house is well equipped, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable with beautiful gardens and a great pool ! Breakfasts on the balcony listening to the Cuckoos was a real treat !

Sarlat is a short drive with plenty of great restaurants, shops and markets. A beautiful part of France and a great base to see the area.

Thanks, and we will be back !

The Best of the Best

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Nicole Pouget's house 8 years ago and returned in Februaryfor a second stay. We are former VRBO owners and know what makes for a great place to stay. This house is extraordinary, and that is an understatement -- rhe best of the best! Five stars is far too few. It has everything needed for a perfect stay and much more.Nicole is a gracious host and, the Sarlat region is one we have come to love. We hope to come back soon for an even longer stay in a house that is truly a home away. Paul and Mary

An absolute gem!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the last two weeks of September & it's the best property we've rented in France. Beautifully furnished, immaculately clean, very comfortable. Excellently positioned a few minutes outside of Sarlat, which is one of the loveliest towns in the Dordogne, in its own grounds off a quiet lane. Several supermarkets are within easy driving distance. The Leclerc is especially worth a mention. Nicole, the owner, is very helpful & discreet. We don't speak much French & she doesn't speak English but we were able to make ourselves understood well enough. The views from the fabulous veranda were an added delight. The exterior is as well equipped as the interior. Decent sized swimming pool, lots of chairs & loungers, table tennis, bbq, privacy! We loved it. It's an absolute gem!

Perfect holiday.

  • 5 of 5

This is probably the best holiday we have ever had. The house is absolutely beautiful, as soon as you walk through the door, you feel at home. The interior decor is superb. The exterior is just as amazing, fantastic views, the pool and area is immaculately clean and tidy. Nicole has thought of everything you could possibly need and is so thoughtful and attentive. Sarlat is a short drive away and again..... beautiful, the supermarket is also a short drive away. We have loved this place so much, we have already booked again for next year. We would like to thank Nicole for a lovely tranquil holiday. 5 stars, highly recommended. Bravo. Nick

Stunning sarlat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Pech pinet....the house is beautifully presented with high quality furnishings. It felt extremely comfortable for a holiday rental . The grounds are large , plenty of seating areas and the pool was an added bonus.Our favourite place was the terrace just off the lounge , amazing views of the valley and we ended up having a few dinners out there till late into the night.Nicole the owner is kind , she made us feel very welcome, nothing was too much trouble and even stayed with our dog one night so we could go out for dinner alone

I would recommend staying here to anyone - we are even thinking of coming again soon

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week here with our two children (6 and 8). The villa is absolutely amazing, it is not often you get a villa for 4/5 people with so much space. The pool and the view are incredible, Nicole the house keeper was fantastic and very discreet. If you are looking at booking this villa do it now it's fab!
