Absolutely Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Our family arrived three weeks ago to attend a wedding in the Dordogne and were amazed to find such beautiful accommodation. Everything was provided to make our stay as luxurious as possible.

Our hosts were charming and provided an excellent service.

We had hired a car so were able to explore some of the beautiful countryside and the magnificent castles and chateaux.

We were reluctant to leave at the end of our fortnights stay and hope to return next year.

Thank you Monsieur and Madame Delmon

Fantastic villa and friendly owners.

  • 5 of 5

We were amazed at the standard of the accommodation and the helpfulness of the owners, Christophe & Francine, who despite not knowing what time we were arriving, were waiting to greet us and show us round the villa. For the two weeks we were there, we found everything to be spot on! It was almost a shame that the weather was so good, as we were out and about enjoying the stunning attractions that were easily accessible It would not have been a hardship to have spent more time in the villa, with it's games room and English TV. The garden and the pool were excellent and even though the weather was hot, it was nice to have a heated pool.

Within a couple of miles there were three excellent restaurants which had been recommended by the owners and we thoroughly enjoyed eating at each of them.

I would heartily recommend this villa to anyone who is looking for a top class villa in a stunning location.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit and another amazing holiday. The Gite has everything and more to make this wonderful stay. The Gite is in very quiet area but easily to make trips out to many of the surrounding towns. The owners as always extremely helpful both before and during our holiday. Many happy times were spent in the pool - which is kept very clean by the owners every day. Seven of us stayed on our recent visit and there is ample room to accommodate this number of people. Very much looking forward to our next visit. Many thanks to Christophe and Francoise.

Fantastic property and lovely owners!

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a great location if you dont want to be in the middle of loads of holiday lets and in a rural location! 10 miles away from the large supermarkets in Sarlat and 2 miles from the nearest village of St Genies which has a great boulangerie and also has a small "spar" type shop along with bars, butcher and restaurant. The property is great with all the festures you would need and more! The pool area is great and the kitchen is stocked with every utensil you will need! The property has UK TV and the WIFI is very good. You will not be disapointed with choosing this property it is stunning! The owners are lovely, they really made us feel welcome and even went out of their way when we realised we had arrived with only 1 plug adaptor and went out for get us a couple more! They are local if there is any problems and come to clean the pool every other day (either before you are even up or late at night) The games room was an added bonus with a Pool table, Table tennis and table football! Thank you for letting us all stay is your amazing property!
