A Studio Gîte For One or Two, Conveinient To All Aminities with parking

Overview

Property

Updated: 11-Nov-2016
Studio Gite with a Sun Drenched Terrace For A Lazy Relaxing Base in Eymet

The Bluebird gîte offers quiet surroundings which are still very close to all local amenities including private parking and its own veranda that’s drenched in sunshine especially for lazy mornings.

The “Bluebird”gîte was so called from the owner’s involvement in land speed record history. But the pace of the Bluebird gîte is considerably slower; it’s a perfect place to relax in friendly homely environment. This very nice self contained centrally heated studio gîte would make for an excellent holiday base, house hunting all year round.

Also it is somewhere for visiting local friends and family who live close by in the area. Here you can relax within easy distance of Eymet square.

Eymet is surrounded by stunningly beautiful countryside where the quiet roads are perfect to explore by foot, bicycle or car. Gastronomy, wine caves and amazing chateaux are all featured in this interesting area of France.

Perfect! Wish I was back now!

  • 5 of 5

Down a peaceful small side road surrounded by a beautiful garden. Only 2 minutes by foot from the bustling bastide village of Eymet.

What a perfect few days away, The gîte is tastefully finished and very comfortable - sleep came easily, we were left wanting for nothing.

Sue and Jeff were absolutely fab hosts! We arrived late Sunday afternoon and didn't have any milk. Sue not only provided milk but a lovely bottle of wine! They also took the time to talk with us about the experiences of living in France over a glass or 2 of red (as we are planning to move to the area.) Their info was invaluable.

We also got into talking about Jeff's work in special effects on such films as Superman, Indiana jones, Star Wars, Labyrinth and Dark Crystal! Absolutely fascinating.

Can't wait to go back. Highly recommend.

Beautiful gîte, lovely hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Sue and Jeff are such lovely hosts, so friendly, welcoming and helpful - we couldn’t have asked for more! Their gîte in Eymet is beautifully decorated (lots of lovely little touches) and very comfortable. It had everything we could have needed and more. We hope to go back again!

Fantastic, great location and friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5

We were both really pleased to land safely at Bergerac airport and we were then re-elevated when we opened the door to Bluebird Gite. The photo's look good but the reality is even better! - I cannot see how anyone would not be totally pleased in their stay here as it has it all - it is like being in the countryside but yet it's only a few minutes walk in to Eymet with all it's facilities.

We had a great time and will be back next year :-)

Perfect

Wow!!!

We have just arrived back home after a week staying at the bluebird gite, it was perfect, the owners Sue and Jeff couldn't do enough for us nothing was too much trouble, we loved every second of our holiday and will certainly be going back. The village Eymet is by far the prettiest little village we have ever seen with its wonderful eateries, bars and boulangeres.

Excellent séjour au calme

  • 5 of 5

A deux pas du centre d'Eymet ce gîte pour deux personnes dans la maison des propriétaires est idéalement situé. On profite d'un jardin au calme sur des transats qui permettent de surveiller la cuisson des magrets de canard sur les barbecues à disposition.

Le gîte est confortable et dispose de tous les équipements nécessaires.

De Eymet, il est très facile de rayonner dans le Périgord, la Dordogne à Bergerac, les jardins panoramiques à Limeuil avec baignade et canoé sur la Dordogne, le château de Duras et les vignobles côtes de Duras à découvrir ...

L'hôtesse est très accueillante et parle français sans difficulté.

This very nice self contained studio gîte would make for an excellent holiday base, house hunting.
