About the Owner

Having taken several holidays in the Dordogne, we resolved to start a Gite business in the area, and after an exhaustive search, bought Laugerie Basse in May 2010. Very glad to be out of the city and into a wonderfully relaxed and stunningly beautiful part of the world. Due to our joie de vivre and relaxed attitude, we have made many friends here, and are very fortunate to have a lot of return guests from all over the world. We love it here and we are sure you will too!

Very clean - well equipped, spacious with a lovely terrace with table & chairs to enjoy views.

  • 5 of 5

Anthony & Janine couldn't have been more welcoming or hospitable. We given a guided tour & then sat with them to enjoy a glass of wine. The Gite was superb, plenty of cutlery - china and kitchen utensils. Very nice terrace right outside of the gite with table - chairs and umbrella to sit and while away the hours in an evening. The heated swimming pool was great with comfy sun loungers - barbecue area with table and chairs.

This was our first trip to France in the car and we couldn't have picked a better area or property to stay in. Myself, wife and 5 year old English springer spaniel thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

We would like to say a big thank you to Anthony & Janine for making us so welcome and making our first trip to France so enjoyable. We will be going back and would highly recommend this accommodation.

Great gite, beautiful setting, fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

These gites are situated in a beautiful, unspoiled, rural location and yet walking distance from the nearest town and right on top of the river Dordogne which is fantastic for safe family canoeing. Our gite was very well set out and equipped with a very comfortable sofa bed in the lounge area and bedroom with gorgeous traditional French furniture - the best gite we have stayed in in France and great value for money. We really enjoyed the pool , just a stone's throw from the gites with quality sunbeds and surrounded by fields and lovely gardens. We made use of the brick-built bbq by the pool and the laundry room with free use of washing machine was a bonus. The hosts, Janine and Anthony were very welcoming and helpful. The welcome aperitif and canapes they put on was a lovely touch and we enjoyed a fabulous lunch with them and some other guests at a local restaurant on our last day. We highly recommend this property and the area - there is something for everyone - castles, caves and canoeing to name just a few of the many attractions.We highly recommend Laugerie Basse and intend to go back!

Perfect accommodation in peaceful location.

  • 5 of 5

Laugerie Basse is a beautiful well maintained property. We have stayed here twice and will certainly be going again. Everything you need is in the gites, we have never stayed in such a well equipped accommodation. and there is a separate shared laundry room. The pool is fantastic it is heated and it has a barbecue area just at the side. The grounds and orchard area are very well maintained and if the fruit is ripe you can pick your own. We hired a car from the airport and the drive to the accommodation is beautiful and takes less than an hour following the very easy directions which the owner can send to you. We stayed for two weeks and visited many amazing places with a 30 minute radius as well as having lazy days around the pool. Shopping is easy just a 5 minute drive from the accommodation is a large supermarket. And a great market on a Sunday.

The owners Janine & Anthony are really friendly and are very knowledgeable about the local area, whilst there we visited Sarlat, Belves, Domme, Chateau de MIlandes, Cabanes Du breuil , Chateau de Commarque, Jardin de Marquessac, La Roque Gaegac, Maison Forte de Raignac, Parc la Bournat, Roque saint Christophe and many other amazing and beautiful places. We will definitely be re booking this accomadation and love the Dordogne. I recommend this property to all my friends and family.

Amazing holiday with lovely, helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at these gites. Firstly, and as all the other reviews have said, they are brilliantly situated in this area. There is so much to do, for adults and kids, all within 20 minutes by car, all leaflets are found in the gites. The gites themselves and their facilities are probably the best we have stayed in. Our son loved them because of the land around the gites and pool to play football, cricket, ping pong etc, all provided by the owners. Lastly, Janine and Anthony were warm, welcoming hosts who were always there to answer any questions with a smile and sometimes a beer! Anthony also took my husband to play golf one morning (my husband was having withdrawal symptoms!). This is the first review I have ever written as I highly recommend these gites.

Everything you need in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Laugerie Basse is perfectly situated which is why we initially chose this gite. It's right in the middle of the most beautiful and interesting areas of the Dordogne, so gorgeous places to visit are only a short drive away. The owners, Antony and Janine are lovely people, who instantly made us feel at home, and they really were as helpful as they could have been.

The gites are spacious and well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay, each with its own patio/balcony with table and chairs for Al fresco eating. The large, heated pool is particularly lovely, and has comfortable loungers and seating where you can quite happily spend all day relaxing if you don't feel like going out. There are bikes too, which we borrowed one day, and had a beautiful cycle ride all along the riverside to Beynac and back with our teenage daughter, which was wonderful. There is a small badminton net, table tennis and a football 'pitch' too, so plenty of space for children to let off steam in the well kept, pretty grounds. Although, we had our privacy, it was nice to chat to the other guests to find out what discoveries they had made during the day too!

We would definitely go back, as Laugerie Basse had everything we were looking for, and is suitable for anyone... couples, young children, teenage children or the elderly.

Laugerie Basse

  • 4 of 5

Laugerie Basse is set in its own attractive parkland in stunning Dordogne countryside and is perfectly situated as a centre to explore the Dordogne Valley and its picture postcard towns and villages.

The Gites are tastefully appointed and airy and just metres away from the very tempting luxury pool.

Janine and Anthony are naturally friendly and gregarious, as you will find, and are a source of priceless tips on sights, activities and restaurants in thier area.

With guests from France, the U.K. and most neighbouring countries it can make for an interesting mix of fellow guests to chat with by the pool. What better location to enjoy and relaxing and stimulating French experience ? We did.

J.D. and friends. London.

We hired a car at Brive Airport but others did so from Bergerac.

Location

From the Owner

After spending many happy holidays in this region, we made a decision to have a life change. After viewing lots of properties, we came back to Laugerie Basse, our first viewing, and by far the best property we had looked at. We work in an environment that is not stressful. We are surrounded by beauty, both in and out of our property and have a dream life. We love people, so running a gite business has come as second nature. Both of us having worked in people industries. Anthony was in advertising and I was in marketing and training. This was such a great decision for us!

Facilities

From the Owner

We have wonderful and supportive community. The locals are very friendly, and we have made more than our fair share of friends while here. We are close to the shops and facilities of St Cyprien, Sarlat, Bergerac and Perigaux, so have the best of all worlds. We are rural without seclusion and in the heart of Dordogne, with all the tourist sites of interest, very close by. We have stunning countryside, are surrounded by history and have a feast of activities to enjoy throughout the year. The benefit of having such a large heated pool and 2 hectares of mature gardens with fruit trees and vines, is just a bonus. We love it here and are sure you will too!
