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.
