About Christine and Gerard PARISET

After numerous working years in Paris, we were looking for a pleasant resort with a soft and sunny climate and a happy, active and welcoming population to live and work finally on the open air.

It is what we found in La Barrat,

Absolutely stunning in every way!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our one year old stayed in July this year for a week. We couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable and wonderful stay. The owners Christine and Gerrard couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. We had a few questions we wanted to ask before booking so we knew all was ok for our little one and they went out of their way to accommodate (even purchasing a new high chair for him!). The house and pool are simply stunning and it's incredibly peaceful. The town is such a short distance away which is great, we hired a car as it was great to be able to pop to other town and villages to visit the markets and it just made it easier with shopping and getting to and from the airport. We booked fairly last minute and we are so glad we found such a gem. We cannot wait to return and just want to thanks you both so so much for everything. We had a fantastic holiday!! All the best, Patrick, Tess & Archie! Xx

The Gite was a great find, perfectly located for short trips to some wonderful towns and chateaux.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at La Crèche gave us a peaceful home location from which to enjoy the late Summer climate around Bergerac. The standard of facilities and layout of the Gite were well presented with the terrace providing a nice private dining area. The pool is shared with the other Gite on site but most of the time we had the pool to ourselves. The tranquil pool setting has a peaceful view down the fields where you can watch the owners horses at play.

Christine and Gerard were lovely hosts and really made our stay welcoming.

We have some wonderful memories to reflect on and will definitely return.

Perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous holiday at La Barratt. Thanks to Gerard, Christine and family, who were wonderful hosts, and made us feel very welcome. Our gite (La Creche) was extremely well-equipped and comfortable, and we made full use of the lovely pool and extensive grounds which offered a welcome, relaxing break after exploring the local villages & markets. We will definitely be returning very soon!

Séjour reposant où règne la sérénité tranquillité

L 'accueil des proprietaires et des petites attentions pour notre bien être ont été au rendez vous toute la semaine. Dans un cadre où la nature est reine et respectée la crèche nous a permis de nous ressourcer en toute tranquillité et confort.Les environs, Issigeac, la vallée de la Dordogne et le Périgord sont des régions merveilleuses, et pleines d'histoire,une semaine trop brève pour tout explorer .Bravo aux propriétaires et merci encore pour cette semaine ressourçant e. B et P.

Ticks all the boxes for a French gite

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a peaceful location, a pool, comfort, a really French feel to the gite, nearby restaurants, interesting local places to visit...we got all that plus Christine and Gerard made us so welcome. La Creche is spacious and comfortable, well-equipped kitchen, lounge, bedroom and bathroom. Ideal for two people. All the rooms have french windows opening out onto a bbq terrace and sitting out areas. The swimming pool is excellent. Issigeac, the nearest town (2k distance), has very good restaurants and a great Sunday market. The medieval Bastide towns abound in this area and make good destinations for daily outings. We borrowed the mountain bikes for short trips - all in all we look forward to a return visit soon.

Our stay in Le Sechoir

  • 5 of 5

On arrival we where greeted by Christine & Gerard who made us very welcome . The gite was very well equipped clean and well maintained. The location and layout was just what we expected. Christine & Gerard provided excellent customer service and advise and would certainly recommend the property to friends The local pizza place was quite resonable but the main restaurant was closed for part of the week.

We really enjoyed our stay and have re-booked for next year.
