About The Owner

We are David and Amanda Travis and in the past spent many holidays in France with our children and friends staying in privately owned gites. We had some very good and some not so good experiences!!

As a result we were inspired to set up our own gites and Les Charmes has been receiving guests since 2006. We finally fulfilled our ambition to move to France in 2012 and now live here permanently.

The Owner purchased this farmhouse in 2005

Why The Owner chose Dordogne

We have always loved the Dordogne for it's pace of life; cuisine, wine and stunning countryside. Our property is off the beaten track and the sense of quiet is truly remarkable yet we are only 10 minutes drive from two local towns and about half an hour away from Bergerac airport.

The properties are stone built and around 200 years old and we thoroughly enjoyed the renovation project which has brought the properties back to life after they were abandoned some 50 year earlier.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We are conveniently located for all the major sites of the Dordogne and having a heated swimming pool really fulfills the one luxury that was always at the top of our list.

As ours was a renovation project we basically started with empty shells - which has allowed us to plan the layout to make best use of space whilst retaining many original features. We have also made sure that the properties are equipped to the standard we would expect which means a full range of kitchen appliances, good quality knives and pans and above all a corkscrew!

A lovely old building, very traditional and rustic feel to it. Set in a very quiet location and with a nice safe pool for the children to use. Had a great time.

Lovely secluded gite with lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

The gite was very French in style as we had hoped. Plenty of space for a family of four, with a well equipped kitchen, two good sized bedrooms, bathroom with a bath and shower over and a private seating area with chairs,tables and an inbuilt barbeque. Nice sized pool for the kids or cooling off when it gets too warm.Not too far from places of interest, but far enough to be beautifully quiet.

We arrived early and caught Amanda cleaning so the gite was cleaned prior to our arrival. Cleaning equipment is provided for cleaning up after the kids during your stay.

David and Amanda took the time to chat with us about what was worth a visit whilst we were there and also about buying and living in France, which was much appreciated. They live on site and always said to just ask if we needed anything.

We would definitely recommend for anybody to visit Les Charmes.

My husband and I have just spent a fantastic week at Les Charmes. The pool was wonderful to return to after hot days sight seeing. Our hosts made sure that everything was how it should be. It certainly is a a gite I would recommend to family and friends.

Les Noyers, Out of Season

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Les Noyers, David & Amanda are great hosts. coming back to a roaring log burner after a day out was an absolute joy. We would recommend staying with them without doubt. The environment is so peaceful, in the evening you can hear owls hooting in the distance and the stars are so bright.

Brilliant, Owners so helpful.

  • 5 of 5

The property was exceptional, enjoyed our evenings around the log fire. Owners were so helpful. Although it was April we had brilliant sunset views. We had everything we needed to enjoy our stay in this in this lovely house.

Thank you both for making it a brilliant stay.
