Fabulous property with amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property, everything was as we expected from the description, if not better! We would definitely recommend the property. Our teenage boys particularly loved the clean, warm, well kept pool and surrounding patio area. Great that we could keep an eye on them from the veranda, enjoying a little shade and easy access to the fridge - PERFECT! Beautiful location with a choice of restaurants just down in the village. Loads to do in the area for all age groups. The owners of the property were very welcoming and provided us with some valuable local tips!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your very positive comments. It's always nice to have appreciative guests. We hope Ollie's leg is now better, such a shame that it happened just before your holiday. Still it's a good excuse to come back again and try some of the many activities that they were looking forward to. Kind regards to all Kris & Dave

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your comments. It's a pleasure to have such appreciative guests. We're glad that Limeuil lived up to Gresham's memories and we hope to see you again soon. Maybe next time you'll get to go water skiing. Keep up with the dancing!! Kind regards Kris & Dave

Fabulous holiday!

  • 5 of 5

What a super place to stay for our fortnight's holiday! The house, pool and space around us were just as we had hoped; clean, inviting and comfortable. It was great to be met by Kris and Dave after a long journey from Calais, who had clearly thought about what they could do to make our stay as relaxed and welcoming as possible. They stocked the fridge with goodies in preparation for our latish arrival, which took the pressure off and was much appreciated by us all. They were both continuously helpful, with suggestions and useful information, and their local knowledge was really useful; it was good to know they were nearby, but they weren't intrusive during our stay. The small market in Limeuil was a great place for daily bread and fruit, with the supermarkets nearby supplying everything else. Tremolat has a great boulangerie which is worth a daily breakfast trip! I would definitely recommend this property; the sunrises and sunsets from the balcony were spectacular! There was nothing we could fault and only wish we had booked an extra week! Thank you so much, we all had a fabulous holiday.

well-equipped country family home in France

  • 4 of 5

The property description was entirely accurate. The house was well equipped for a family stay and both house and grounds were clean and well maintained. Customer service was excellent- personal but not intrusive. We enjoyed our week immensely and would recommend this property to families wanting a home from home in lovely French countryside. Extensive information on 'what to do'-all accurate and informative, was freely available. The only downside was not being able to buy basic food items-ie bread, milk and basics basics in the local village Limeuil on a daily basis. Shopping was not a big problem however, but entailed a drive to Le Bourg-making our car an essential. Walking was a pleasure and many lovely walks were easily accessed from the property. Likewise, it is possible to walk to a number of good restaurants. All in all, an excellent week-highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very comprehensive and positive review. We're glad the house lived up to its expectations and hope the lack of food shops did not cause too much inconvenience. As we mentioned, the village stall selling basic foodstuffs and bread re-appeared the day after you left. Our Mayor has assured us that his plans for next year's village improvements include a bakers and general store. Let's hope they materialise.

An amazing holiday

7 of us enjoyed a wonderful week. The villa was lovely with stunning views,well equipped and very very clean. We received a delightful welcome pack on arrival which saw us through our fist night and breakfast. With the village within easy walking distance the villa couldn't have been better situated. We would definitely look to returning as there is so much to see and do in the area and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Set on a hill above the Dordogne river, La Coquille de Noix is within walking distance of Limeuil,one of the most beautiful villages in France. This medieval fortified village is perched where the Vezere river meets the Dordogne and offers four excellent restaurants and a bar all within walking distance. Shops, bakers & supermarkets are only a 5 - 10 minute drive away.
