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.

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!

Everything and more!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful villa has everything you could want and more! From the moment that you step into the elegantly decorated hall you know that you have arrived to somewhere special. Nicole, the owner has created a wonderful oasis of peace and tranquility.

The kitchen has everything that those who like to cook (like me) need and want. The living space is excellently laid out and the bedroom are superb. We stayed for two weeks and enjoyed every second. We travelled with our two dogs and the wonderful gardens were perfectly safe for them.

The outdoors area are brilliantly laid out with fully functional BBQ, swimming pool and table tennis for those who like to run around in the sun!

Nicole's pride of place goes to her garden. The array of plants is a joy to behold. Butterflies were everywhere and the birds sang happily every day.

We loved this villa! Thank you so much Nicole.

We must give credit to the manager, Catherine.

  • 5 of 5

The house, owner, and area was outstanding but we want to give kudos to the manager, Catherine for all her help. Our trip would have not been possible if not for her patience with us and a wealth of information on absolutely every subject from train travel to the rental cars, the area etc. There were many confusions with the train company, with changing times, prices and directions and she pulled us gently along thru each speed bump we encountered and set us back on track. We had many problems with an unnamed car rental company who is almost impossible to get in touch with. She took over, secured our reservations and got me a contact, including directions from the train station to the car company, which had informed us of nothing. She helped us to get in touch with the house owner several times and vice versa. Then she arranged us a taxi over to the next town when we excited Sarlat to go to Barcelona. Instead of arranging pickup out in the country at the rental house, she had him meet us at the car company so we could turn in our car as well. I am not exaggerating, I corresponded with her at least 25 emails, with every one containing either a problem or a question. She remained patient and prompt thru it all. Catherine you are a valuable asset to Nicole, the owner, Homeaway, your boss, and most importantly to naïve and confused tourists from around the world. We wish you the best and applaud your fortitude and kindness indeed.
