Guestbook comments from the owner

We've had a wonderful stay at Le Peyrat.Tracy and Brian are welcoming, kind hosts who are really helpful without being intrusive. We would highly recommend the Saturday market at St Foy le Grande, Lac de Gurson, Etang la Jemaye (beautiful lake, wooded, great wooden play area for children and small beach. Dimitri the chef is a lovely man, speaks good English, fab food at great prices and is very flexible. He provided us with some delicious meals after a quick chat to arrange a menu. We will certainly be recommending Le Peyrat to our friends.

Extremely Happy

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a fantastic time at Le Peyrat. The house and gardens were very well maintained and clean. All that was advertised was provided, and the photos are true to their word. For my kids the highlight had to be the pool, for the adults it was the house, the visit from the reccommended chef, the local towns and villages with their great wines and festivals. Tracy and Brian were always there if we had any questions or needed help organising a visit somewhere, but they were never intrusive. Le Peyrat is definately a place that we would like to visit again and I would highly reccommend a holiday at this lovely house.

Exception property - Great for the whole family.

  • 5 of 5
Recently returned from a one week stay in Le Peyrat with extended family. 8 adults and 6 small kids! We all wish we had a 2nd week. A fantastic property. Especially the gardens and pool. Tracy and Brian are great hosts. We had very nice weather all week so were outside throughout. So much for our kids to do between treehouse, trampoline, sandpit, pool, toys and games. Less minding for the grown ups! All the mod cons you need in the house and its in excellent condition throughout. Walking distance to a small village and short drive to a larger town. Its also in an ideal location to explore the region. This property has only 5 star reviews for a reason. Book with confidence.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a one week stay at Le Peyrat and all of the positive comments that I read beforehand were true.

We arrived at the end of March / first week of April and whilst we did not expect to have nice weather we were pleasantly surprised. Most of the time the temperature hovered around the 20c mark and we only had one day of rain. The pool is heated so we were very happy that we had the opportunity to use it. There is also a swimming lake 5mins drive away that has a lovely sandy beach. Because we were travelling out of the high season we had the beach to ourselves which was great. We also made the most of travelling throughout the Dordogne region going to all of the various sites which were not yet overrun with tourists.

Le Peyrat is very spacious and is set in lovely quiet grounds with lots of fun activities for kids and adults alike. There are many toys, board games and various games equipment are provided (badminton rackets, footballs..etc) We made great use out of the Boule court and we were getting quite competitive at the end. My 3 year old daughter loved the treehouse and I’m now working out how I can build something similar in my own garden.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in many villa's some good some average but this was by far the best. It is spacious, well equipped and well maintained. The pool water is warm.The owners were helpful giving us information about things we were interested in locally but they were not intrusive. We have already recommended it to friends and hope to return ourselves.

Why go anyplace else?

  • 5 of 5
Set in a peaceful village in the rolling vineyard hills of the Dordogne is this hidden gem known as Le Peyrat. My family and I (8 adults and 3 children) spent a memorable week in the converted barn. Fantastic large garden for the children to laugh and play and a heated pool to enjoy the great weather. Tracy, our host, organised a chef to cook for us one night and the meal, reasonably priced, was by far the best food we had all week! With vineyards just around the corner and the owners and staff more than willing for you to just stop by and sample their seasons best. Le Peyrat is that place you stay for a relaxing, quiet break, with enough amenities a two minute picturesque walk into the village or larger shops only a 15 minute drive away. By far Le Peyrat was one of the best family holidays we have had and we left with many, many great memories. Thank you to Tracy and Le Peyrat!!
