A beautiful house with fantastic out door areas.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for us, very private and plenty of space for all of us to relax and play. The pool was fantastic, which the children spent most of their time in. We loved the many different outdoor areas to eat , relax or play games. The surrounding area was beautiful and we loved visiting the nearby towns, St Astier had a fantastic market on the Thursday. All in all we had a great time.

Simply put, it was fabulous!

  • 4 of 5

We were hoping for a relaxing break in pleasant surroundings and received this and so much more. Le Soutenanc was a fabulous venue, picturesque, clean and wonderfully quiet. Best of all, unlike many French gites, Le Soutenac offered all modern facilities and it was a privilege to stay in such a wonderful home. We fully recommend this gite, the view from our bedroom patio doors was a sheer joy. The village was quiet but charming and when we could drag ourselves away there was much to do in the area. Don't hesitate or you will miss your dates, this place is fabulous and will be snapped up quickly!

Le Soutenac - Amazing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Lovely owners, beautiful property and stunning grounds. House was tasteful and thoughtfully decorated and the gardens were magnificent. Clean, comfortable and excellent value for money. Spent a week there with old friends and we were very very sad to leave. Recommend a visit to St Astier market and Perigeux town. We will be back.
