About the Owner

A Family of four - 2 adults and 2 children with our horses and chickens emigrated to France to enjoy lovely weather and the beautiful countryside, which reminds us of our childhood in Sussex and Gloucestershire. World travelled and having previously worked in the UK in the consumer electronics industry and restaurant business we understand how important holidays are, and getting it 'right' for our guests - the balance between relaxation-enjoyment - value and quality.

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.
