CHARMING

  • 4 of 5
Delightful group of accommodations with pool in lovely grounds. Sitting by the stream in the evening sun with a glass of wine was super! Le Tournesol was quite dark inside but this meant that it was cool compared with the heat outside. Very well equipped.

A WONDERFUL PLACE FOR A HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We have been going to France several years now and this is the best place we have stayed from every point of view. The property was exactly as described and the facilities were excellent, it is situated in an area where you get to lots of attractions without driving too far. The owners are very helpful and friendly. We would highly recommend it.

VERY PLEASANT SPOT!

  • 4 of 5
Our stay in Le Tournesol was one of our nicest gite holidays. We were warmly welcomed by Karen and Rob who showed us round the gite and the estate and made sure we were happy with everything before leaving us to it. The gite is well presented, comfortable and everything we wanted. The welcome bottle of wine was a lovely extra touch. We made use of the barbecue on some evenings but also sampled some of the restaurants in the village. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay here.

WONDERFUL PROPERTY IN LES EYZIES

  • 5 of 5
We had an absolutely wonderful weeks holiday in Les Eyzies in June 2012. We were staying in The Sunflower property, (smallest of 3 with 2 bedrooms).
Karen and Rob were wonderful owners/hosts and their home and especially the grounds/gardens are absolutely beautiful. They offered help when needed but left us to just get on with things.
The river running through the grounds offers a lovely peaceful spot to have dinner near and the pool, childrens play area and play barn are well maintained, with lots of toys to borrow.
The property had all the home comforts and kitchen impliments one could ever want and because of the thick walls was wonderfully cool.
One thing to note is that you cannot park near the property, so would not be suitable for anyone with access/mobility issues.
Les Eyzies is only a 5 minute drive away, but not really suitable to walk to. It is a nice touristy village with many shops and restaurants.
We would love to return in the future.

FANTASTIC HOLIDAY!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Le Banquet (Tournesol gite) for 2 weeks recently. We have two girls age 5 and 9.

Rob and Karen made us extremely welcome - they live on site but are not intrusive at all and always friendly and helpful. They have great ideas of things to do - Les Milandes chateau and the story behind its once owner Josephine Baker was amazing. It also had a bird show which we aren't normally 'into' but it was really impressive.

Karen also recommended a cafe on the Vezere river where they offer you blankets to sit on on the banks - its all self service - I had the best tartine salad I have ever had so returned to get more!!

It is obvious that Karen and Rob work really hard at keeping their business at a high standard - our gite (and the others as we visited them through meeting the other families during our stay) were very clean and the furnishings were up to date and very comfortable. Waking up to the sound of the stream was amazingly calming and the gardens are beautiful - gorgeous roses and wild garden areas - courtesy of Rob's green fingers.

The games barn had everything in it for all ages - we have been to gites before and all it had was a ping pong table and thats all.

Tournesol is the smallest of the gites and although the outdoor area didn't have a view of the garden or stream, it was very private and you could easily sit in one of the deckchairs by the stream if you wanted to. Rob and Karen appear to have thought of everything!

The only negative I would say is the road noise, but even that wasn't constant (its extremely quiet at night) and it certainly didn't spoil our stay in any way.

I would recommend Le Banquet to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday with heaps to do very locally.

PERFEKTES URLAUBSIDYLL AN DER DORDOGNE

  • 5 of 5
Karen und Rob sind die perfekten "Gasteltern". Sie vermitteln einem sofort das Gefühl des Willkommenseins und des sich Wohlfühlens. Sie sind jederzeit ansprechbar und sehr hilfsbereit. Le Banquet ist ein wunderschönes Anwesen in der Dordogne. Alles ist sehr gepflegt und sehr sauber.

Das Tournesol ist die kleinste, aber eine sehr gemütliche Einheit. Das Spielehaus ist auch für bereits ältere Kinder durch Billiard, Tischtennis und Tischkicker eine willkommene Abwechslung. Besonders schön fanden wir den kleinen Plätscherbach innerhalb der Anlage, der zum Entspannen auf Sonnenstühlen einlud. In der Umgebung gibt es unzählige Schlösser, Höhlen oder wunderschön angelegte Gärten zu entdecken. Aber auch die Kanufahrten auf der Dordogne oder Vezere machen sehr viel Spaß.

2 Wochen sind einfach zu kurz, wir werden mit Sicherheit noch einmal wiederkommen.

Dramatic rock faces, sparkling rivers, green valleys, Chateaux, medieval villages, prehistoric caves and brilliant sunlight. The Dordogne, the very heart of the Perigord has been described by some as paradise.

As you pass fields of sunflowers and corn and marvel at castles towering at the top of cliffs or visit the many 'Beau Villages' in the surrounding area you begin to understand why. The area surrounding Le Banquet is dominated by pre-history, beautiful architecture and gastronomy. The perfectly preserved medieval town of Sarlat is just 20 minutes away.

The local markets are full to brimming with some of the best produce France has to offer.

Whether you wish to visit one of the many UNESCO world heritage sites, caves with their drawings dating back 20,000 years, picnic by the banks of the Vezere River, taste the excellent wines from Bergerac and surround or canoe, horse ride and perhaps fish, Le Banquet is at the very heart of it all.

If you are a food lover, then welcome to gastronomic heaven! Foie Gras, cepes, truffles and excellent restaurants - the region has it all.

Other local activities include: canoeing, airparks, quad bike hire, go carting the list is endless.......
