Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a lovely holiday. We love the cottage and found it a very relaxing place to be.

Although the weather could have been kinder, some of us were in the pool nearly every day! Thank you for taking the trouble to look up the local walks, which we very much enjoyed.



We had a lovely meal at La Boissiere and would also recommend Chez Sarlet in Terrasson. Excellent patisserie to be had in the village but even this was surpassed by the patisserie in Objat.



We found the people in the area very friendly and very understanding of our limited French!

Perfect for that much needed relaxing holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in La Briasse for just over two weeks in late August,early September and can honestly say it was one of the best holidays we have ever had. Dawn's wonderful cottage has all that you could possibly need or want for a perfectly relaxing and comfortable holiday - home from home - without the stress! We were very lucky with the weather too with almost wall to wall sunshine most days, perfect for relaxing by the fabulous pool, reading, and just enjoying the fantastic views. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we have already booked to go back next year. Thank you Dawn for letting us share your beautiful home.

PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic 2 weeks at La Briasse in June (our 2nd time) and booked again with Dawn for 2015 immediately on return to UK! The cottage is really spacious, full of character/beauty and with everything you could possibly need (best equipped rental house ever). The garden is very private with a lovely pool and spectacular views down the valley. We've rented many houses in France but this is without doubt the very best! Location excellent with scenic drives in all directions, beautiful villages close by, historic castles at Pompadour and Hautefort, the unmissable Sunday morning market at Objat and all the famous caves/pre-historic monuments all within easy reach. Loads of different things to do and see for all ages if you can bear to drag yourself away from the house + pool. Thanks Dawn for letting us stay in your little eden - roll on 2015.

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a brilliant holiday staying at Dawn's wonderful cottage in Ayen. The cottage was bigger than expected and so well equipped that we wanted for nothing. The garden and pool are both very private and peaceful and completely enclosed, making it perfectly safe for our dog to roam around freely. Dawn greeted us on arrival and was always happy to help out during our visit (even arranging our dog's visit to the vets for us) but was never intrusive during our stay - For that week the cottage was "ours". We would most certainly recommend this accommodation to our friends and family and sincerely hope to be returning in the future. Julie and Nick Cushing (and Skip)

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in this lovely house and have already booked for next year. The rooms are bigger than the photos suggest and very comfortable and the heated pool is great, with beautiful views. Thank you Dawn, we can't wait to come back to your lovely house and to see more of beautiful correze.

Very good holiday and a lovely house

  • 5 of 5

The owner of the house Dawn met us when we arrived and was very friendly. We had a welcome drink and chat which was a nice way to start our holiday. The house and garden area are of a high standard and the pool is a very good size. The bar area was also a very handy place to sit and have a drink. The location of the house was good and the area around the house is very picturesque and the sunsets we seen close to the house were stunning. There is plenty of places to visit locally and the chateaus were not only great places to visit but they were also very quiet which is a bit of a change to tourist destinations in England! We would definitely recommend this house and the location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two weeks in this property. The cottage was well equipped and full of character. The children particularly loved the huge attic bedroom (as did I!). The garden was very peaceful, with great views over the fields and beyond. The heated pool was fab and we used it every day. There were lots of activites in the area (high wires, chocolate factory, candle lit gardens etc.) but we always enjoyed coming back to the pool, the peace and the BBQ!

Ayen is a small village on the Correze/Dordogne border 20 kms north west of Brive-la-Gaillarde. The departement of the Lot is only 20 kms away. Locally many walks - not for the faint-hearted as this area has magnificent views hence hills and valleys! The list of tourist sites to visit is exhaustive with everything from the 2nd most visited tourist spot in France - Rocamadour; to Pompadour - home of the National Stud; Lascaux; listed villages; museuems, pavement cafes, fishing, lakes with sailing and water ski-ing etc. etc. etc. Fantastic bird watching. Night sky superb.

Other Activities: Bird watching. Night sky.
