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.

A perfect escape

  • 5 of 5

Tucked away in the rolling hills of the Dordogne you couldn't find a more perfect escape. We stayed in the split level studio, with its own patio, kitchen dining room/sitting room. Upstairs it has an en-suite double bedroom with exposed beams from original building. Wendy is so friendly and welcoming and knows so much about what to do and where to go. She was the perfect hostess, picking us up and dropping us off from the airport.

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.
