About Helen & James Gray

We are a retired couple - James previously worked in the City (London) and Helen in a GP surgery as a psychotherapist. We have two sons and one grandson. Besides the latter, our passion is gardening and we are always seeking new ways to develop the different areas of the garden at Petites Cotes. Our chief desire is to give our guests pleasure as well as relaxation in the beautiful surroundings of Perigord Vert. We spend time in both London and France. We are members of a book, history and gardening club and attend the local English speaking church in France. We love eating out especially as there are many inexpensive restaurants in the area.

Lovely house in a peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely two weeks at La Petite Maison. The house is very comfortable and homely and we settled in straight away. James and Helen are lovely hosts and are on hand if you need them, but otherwise are only to be seen pottering around the garden (probably doing a little more than pottering, as the gardens are beautifully kept and attract butterflies, bees, lizards, deer etc.) The pool area is fantastic with plenty of sun beds and our youngest loved the paddling area.

Verteillac is about 10 minutes down the road and has plenty of restaurants to choose from and some great local shops. The surrounding countryside is very picturesque with sleepy villages and fantastic scenery. Nearby is the lovely, bustling town of Brantome, with some great restaurants and is one of the many places where you can hire a canoe or rowing boat and spend a couple of hours on the river. The kids loved the caves and various prehistoric sites dotted around the area.

If you're looking for a beautiful, peaceful place to stay in a less touristy area of Perigord, but within reach of some great attractions and historic sites, then you won't be disappointed.

Pretty cottage, lovely location, great facilities

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cottage - it really is a rural retreat where you can escape from the stresses of everyday life. The swimming facilities are outstanding; immaculately kept and very attractive. Our children also thoroughly enjoyed using the badminton court. James and Helen are great hosts - knowledgeable about the area, friendly and helpful without ever being intrusive. An added bonus was the gorgeous sunflowers that line the entrance to the property and the stunning sunsets! Local facilities in Vertaillac were more than adequate and we also enjoyed a couple of weekend markets. A car is essential at this property and we used ours most days to visit attractions slightly further afield, of which there are quite a few. A favourite was a medieval fayre in a neighbouring town. We took children ranging in age from 17 down to 8 and there was something for everyone. A lovely holiday, thank you.

A beautiful property in an idyllic location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week in 2012 and had a very happy family holiday and our children (early teens) were glad to return in 2013.
This time was even better as we had more time to explore the environs as well as relax in the pool and the lovely gardens. There was lots of interesting wildlife (butterflies, lizards, red squirrels and much more) and the local facilities had charm and met our needs perfectly. Helen & James are delightful hosts, who balanced our privacy with attentive interest perfectly. There is plenty to do without the need to go further afield and yet we found a range of interesting options nearby without a long car journey. The cottage was charming, clean and welcoming and we made full use of the table tennis and badminton as well as the exceptional pool. We have stayed in a few properties in different parts of France over the years and for family holidays this is our favourite.

Excellent family holiday

  • 5 of 5
An good location for a family with 2 young children (2 & 4 years old) wanting a quiet holiday. The house was larger than we expected from the pictures and the pool and garden more than lived up to expectation. The files provided by the owners in the house provide all the necessary information to help plan the week - and visits to nearby towns/attractions. Helen & James are generous hosts, very welcoming without intruding on a family holiday. We would certainly recommend it to others, and may return ourselves.

Our holiday in Le Petit Maison

  • 4 of 5
After nearly a year of working extremely hard, myself and my wife decided that we would like a nice break in France. We had an extremely relaxing time eating very flavoursome food, drinking lovely wine and enjoying the facilities at Le Petit Maison. There is badminton, table tennis, petanique, a swimming pool and lots of wildlife to see whilst out walking. The towns of Aubeterre, Riberac, Vertaillec and especially Brantome are well worth a visit. We highly enjoyed our stay and although our holiday was always intended to be a low key one - we definitely found that there was plenty to do and lots to see. The French people we met were extremely friendly and we had a lot of fun trying out our limited French!

When we met the owners they were very polite, very conscious of not intruding on your holiday, but actually when we got to meet them we found them to be lovely people and in actual fact perhaps it may have been even better to spend a bit more time being sociable over a couple too many glasses of wine! I cannot conclude the review without mentioning what a joy it is, when the evening draws to a close, to be able to gather some firewood and light the fire in the lounge. It was very comforting, warm and created a marvellous ambience in the cottage.

A very nice holiday, in a lovely rural setting!

Best Regards,

James and Selina.

Great family holiday.

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at your property. We enjoyed the heated pool very much and had a very relaxing holiday. A fantastic setting for a rural retreat which lived up to our expectations. We found some excellent local restaurants thanks to your guide and would have no reservation in recommending it for a family holiday.
