My family , fourteen of us from 70 to 1 year, had a memorable and joyful two weeks at Les Ormeaux. The house and grounds are magical. An easy walk takes you into the village , and there are many very good places to eat within an easy drive. Alexandra made the process of checking in and out easy; the caretaker Georges was onsite in case of any problems. I envy anyone who finds themself in this very special place!
My husband and I were reluctant at first to rent this property as there were no reviews on this property. I'm so glad we did. We had a marvelous stay at this traditional stone cottage in Pechboutier, a small hamlet very close to St. Cyprien. The whole cottage is recently refurbished and we had all the ammenties we were looking for.
The kitchen is well designed and stunningly cute. When you enter the kitchen you get to look out a curved window and the whole kitchen is tucked away in a spacious cove. In fact, I kept telling my husband how cute this place was and that "I am so excited to be here."
We had our own private garden complete with outdoor table, chairs, and barbeque. Inside the beds were very comfortable - One upstairs and one downstairs in a tri-level cottage. The downstairs bedroom was very cool as it is in the basement. The upstairs bedroom was light and airy but you could still get full darkness when you shut all the curtains.
The bathroom was exceptionally done. I've never had a more comfortable bath and it was big enough for my husband and I to share! We love this tub!
The hamlet is very quiet but still super convenient to explore the Dordogne by car. Neighbors are all very friendly and helpful.
Our hosts were terrific! Since this is a new listing on homeaway, just finished a month ago, they welcomed our comments for improvement and were right there if we needed anything, which honestly wasn't much. They have put such thoughtful touches throughout this cottage. We also thoroughly enjoyed "Noisette"; Our hosts' dog who would often come by just to say hello. He was super cute and respectful too.
Dont' hesitate to book this place, you will very much enjoy it as we did.
