Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at La Balie with 3 children. The place as a whole is just idyllic ..... Our 3 bedroom cottage had everything that we needed and was spotless and very tastefully decorated. The pool and outdoor areas were really pretty and perfect for a days relaxation. The surrounding villages and countryside are great to explore. Fiona the owner who is meticulous in every aspect of running these gites is on hand to offer local knowledge. We will definitely be returning!

erholsam, sauber, komfortabel und super Pool

  • 5 of 5

2 Wochen mit 4 grossen Teenie-Kindern waren sehr erholsam.

Das innen neu ausgebaute Steinhaus bleibt auch bei Temperaturen um 35°C recht angenehm kühl. Die Einrichtung ist einfach, komfortabel und zweckmässig mit einem Hauch von Romantik. Alles ist sehr gepflegt und sauber. In der Realität sieht alles noch besser aus als auf den Fotos. Das Auto kann unter einem Ziegeldach vor Sonne und Regen geschützt geparkt werden.

Die beiden Schwestern Fiona und Jackie sind sehr freundlich, zuvorkommend, hilfsbereit und stets diskret (very british). Wünsche und Anregungen nehmen sie gerne entgegen.

Der Hammer ist allerdings der Pool und den Pool-Alarm kann man wirklich ganz abschalten! Sehr gute Wasserqualität, genügend gross, dass sich auch 8 Erwachsene gleichzeitig darin tummeln können, und mit unterschiedlichen Wassertiefen zwsichen 50cm bis gut 2m. Sonnenliegen sind genügend vorhanden (für jeden Gast eine) sowie auch Sonnenschirme. Wenn es zu heiss wird, zieht man mit der Sonnenliege in den Schatten der Bäume. Der Pool ist durch Bäume, Büsche und eine hohe Loobeerhecke recht gut vor Wind geschützt.

WLAN Internet-Anschluss (2.5 / 0.5 Mbps) ist für Ferienzwecke ausreichend, Internet-TV oder Video-Streaming ruckelt allerdings kräftig, wenn alle Gäste online sind.

La Balie ist sehr ruhig gelegen und eignet sich gut als Ausgangspunkt für Schloss- und Burgbesichtigungen. In der Stube liegt ein Ordner mit allen wichtigen Informationen und vielen Ausflugsvorschlägen. Ein Ausflug nach Monflanquin (Markt am Donnerstag Vormitag), Monpazier, Fumel und Bergerac lohnt sich. Die beiden nahe gelegenen Chateaux Biron und Gavaudun kann man getrost vergessen.

Alles in allem sehr empfehlenswert! Und wer möchte, kann sich jeden morgen frische Brötchen vom lokalen Bäcker liefern lassen.
