About the Owner

Hi from Chris and Christine,

We are an ordinary hard working family living in surrey.

We decided to look for a home in France after a great

family holiday 10 years ago. It took us three years and

several holidays finding this house and i know you will

love the house and location when you get there. For the

past six years we have enjoyed great holidays here but

have decided to lret this lovley property for the first time.

Fantastic house - we will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Le Planel. We knew we would have a great time as on arrival, after many hours in the hot car, our youngest (who was already prepared in his swimming costume) threw himself out of the car and launched himself into the swimming pool with screams of delight (and the squeal of the pool alarm!!). He hardly left the poolside all week.

Christine was so helpful with all my many questions before the holiday and contacted us again when we arrived to check that everything was okay.

The house was spacious and brilliantly equipped with a Tassimo coffee machine, pots and pans galore and plenty of crockery and cutlery. The location was stunning - at the top of a hill so you benefitted from a welcome breeze. We were far away enough from the neighbours to not have to worry about making too much noise!

The gazebo was very welcome and I am not sure that we would have been able to eat outside so much without it because of the heat of the sun.

Having wifi, DVDs and many books on hand was certainly welcomed by our 13 and 15 year olds, they also enjoyed the table tennis, video game machine and table football.

The swimming pool was beautifully clean and maintained, we did have to top it up after advice from the helpful pool man up as it was an exceptionally hot week and the level had dropped slightly.

We are already planning our next visit as I know that it was a holiday our family will remember.

We had good communication between us. Look forward to welcoming you back next year, we are having 3 new velux windows put in so hopefully the living area and upstairs bathroom will let in the sun. Kindest regards. Christine.

a wonderful, relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful house in a beautiful and peaceful location which gives you everything you need to relax and enjoy the sun. We loved the outside area with its lovely views, pool and gazebo for eating outside in welcome shade.

There's so much to do at the house, table tennis, table football and games but we perhaps didn't take full advantage of this as we all got distracted by the Olympics! So pleased to have the BBC coverage, a real bonus.

We enjoyed the Monday night food market in Beaumont with all the locals and visitors coming together to enjoy the local produce and music. The Sunday market in Issigeac was busy but worth a visit if you want to avoid the supermarket sometimes.

Canoeing was very easy to arrange in Limeuil.

We've holidayed in the Dordogne a few times before and this is our favourite location so far.

A beautiful relaxing haven

  • 5 of 5

Two friends and I spent an incredibly relaxing three days here, in this beautiful house in a stunning rural setting. The house was clean and the facilities were great - including WiFi - and it is located 5 minutes from a big supermarket and about 10 minutes from a lovely little town that had a great pizza restaurant (and lots of other restaurants). Thoroughly recommend for anyone who wants to completely unwind and forget about the worries of everyday life!

Idyllic holiday accomodation

  • 5 of 5

I had read all the reviews of Le Planel prior to booking and I definitely agree with all that has been written before, it is a truly beautiful place to stay. The views,tranquility,and excellent accommodation that has been so well thought out,make it a really is gorgeous place to stay.

The surrounding area is packed with amazing Bastide towns,(nearby Monpazier is beautiful)they are completely unspoilt....joyfully no Starbucks and Costa to be seen😀

Recommend canoeing great fun and fabulous views along the Dordogne.

Christine always replied immediately to all enquiries.

So as you guessed it's ☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️ from us

The Perfect Escape

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at La Planel recently and we both agreed that it is the nicest and most well appointed villa we have ever stayed in. The owners, Chris and Christine have thought of everything to make guests feel at home and the whole villa has a lovely warm, inviting ambiance

The decor is personal and lovely (we have stolen some of your ideas for our house) and the place is clean and comfortable.

The pool is lovely, second only to the amazing views which had us in a conundrum of choosing whether to read our books or gaze across the scenery. You really felt like you were all on your own in peace and tranquility.

We also had the pleasure of meeting the owners Chris & Christine on our arrival and they we're lovely, helpful and left no doubt that this villa is very much a part of them. I'm sure nothing would be too much trouble.

Monpazier and Beaumont are about 10 mins drive away and we found ourselves in the former almost daily wondering around and buying baguettes. There is a nice supermarket nearby (still a drive) which holds most of the essentials (wine).

Thanks again to Chris and Christine for their awesome villa and we will be returning in the near future.

Location

From the Owner

This area is great for holidays as it centrally located in the most popular and beautiful part of France for holidaymakers.Their is an abundance of things to do whatever you like, or you could just sit by the beautiful pool sunbathe and read a book or sit under a sun awning and admire the views with a glass of wine. I would recommend a few must do's : 1; Canooing trip down the Vezere and into the Dordogne. 2; Visit the local caves(stalignites etc) 3; Visit castle Beynaud 4; Markets especially sunday morning at Issigeac. 5; Medievil fetes allways on during the summer at many local bastide towns. 6; Wine tasting at a local chateau{go to a local tourist office who will give you all the right info} 7; Eat out at one of the local restaurants.
