Cottage in Village Pressignac-Vicq, Bergerac Dordogne - Relaxing Home From Home Comfort With Heated Pool

La Fourquerie is a Country Gite Cottage set in the heart of the beautiful countryside in the Dordogne area of France. It is run by an English couple who are offering a 'Home from Home' holiday, but in France. You will be staying in your own complete Gite Cottage. The area is less than 30 minutes from Bergerac Roumaniere Airport, but you would never know as it is in this lovely part of France. There are lots of local activities which include horse riding, cycling and walking. Travel a little further a field and will find many things to do and visit including areas of natural beauty, buildings of historic interest, caves and wonderful French villages and towns. The owners aim to give you the holiday that you want, by making you feel welcome and helping organise all your activities. If you are looking for a holiday where you can relax and enjoy the pleasantries of the French countryside then look no further.

Great hosts, location and fully equipped gite

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with Wendy and Nick in the Studio gite for 2 and it was great! Fully equipped, very comfortable and relaxed. The guys clearly put a lot of effort in keeping the place in top condition. Did I mention the pool and patio area too...very happy to recommend and would happily return :)

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Wendy and family couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. Best equipped gite we have ever stayed in. So much on offer -pool, table-tennis, snooker, football game and a host of very friendly animals, especially Pom the cat! Very good spot to see the Dordogne. Highlights were canoeing,the caves, castlenaud, markets, and of course horseriding.

We would really recommend staying at either gite - you will not be disappointed. Great views and so peaceful.

Gite Holiday at Pressinac

  • 5 of 5

We could not have found better!!! Absolutely great gite with everything needed for a great holiday. Lovely cosy log burner for chilly evenings. Our hosts, Wendy & Nick Osborne were so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Lots of advice on the location always to hand. Little surprises of Wendy's great cooking!! Beautiful Labrador Dog (Bella) who greeted us each day and who we now miss!! All in all a fantastic 2 weeks where we stayed in both of the gites and you will find your holiday here a great choice. We will return very soon. A big thank you to Wendy & Nick.
