Perfect house to getaway
We spent a week with our 2 children aged 9 & 12 at the house in August. The house was perfect, very clean and well equipped. The pool and hot tub were enjoyed by all of us, especially as it was a real sun trap. The umbrellas came in useful for some shade. The terrace on the first floor was lovely for breakfast and dinner and we enjoyed relaxing there. The house is a short walk from the village centre, a bit of a steep walk back so having a car is useful for grocery shopping. The hosts were extremely helpful and always responded quickly. We would highly recommend this house.
Even better than the photos
We spent 2 wonderful weeks at this house. It was perfect in every way. Clean, well equipped and very, very comfortable. Olivier and Maïté were great hosts. A great location for visiting Sarlat but also for making day trips to the many interesting locations in the Dordogne. We cannot wait to come back to Le Pignol again. Merci beaucoup Olivier and Maïté
Couldn't believe how good it was so we went back again to check!
Four adults stayed at the house for one week, in June 2018.
The house is a newish build, circa 1980, located in a very quiet part of Sarlat, with a couple of houses close by. It is extremely well equipped, with living and sleeping areas located both on the ground floor and the first floor. The first floor living area is air conditioned, a must in the hotter months. As you would expect WiFi is provided, with TVs upstairs and downstairs, which received mainly french/german channels plus Sky news. In addition, the first floor is enhanced by a large veranda with tables/chairs, which provides discrete spaces either to welcome the morning sun at breakfast time or to avoid the sun at midday or just to provide islands of solitude for reading etc.
The outside has the heated pool together with the jacuzzi. Jacuzzi on a coolish day and the pool on a warm day . . . perfect! There is also an outside dining area with a huge sunshade, should you need it . . . and you probably will in the summer months. Additionally there is an area for sitting/relaxing near the pool, again complete with sunshade. (Cushions would be nice tho' for these plastic wicker chairs?)
There is sufficient off-road parking at the house for 2 cars but there is additional space should you need it on the small square opposite the house. The parking is under trees so cars can remain relatively cool.
The house is only a 10 minute walk from the medieval centre of Sarlat, which makes the house a superb base. (Be aware that the house is on a hill, so add 5 minutes to the return journey!) No need to bother with parking. (most of parking in Sarlat appears to be "payant"). Despite visiting last year we still enjoyed simply having a walk into town and having a meal in the centre, we didn't get bored with that, interspersed with a couple of BBQs.
There are many places you can select to visit, dependent upon the weather e.g. a boat or canoe trip on the Dordogne from La Roque Gajeac or the chateau (castle) at Beynac, both only short distances from the house.
Behind any property is a requirement for an "ace" team to welcome you, to see to any arising needs whilst you are there and to undertake the necessary maintenance on the pool, jacuzzi, watering the plants etc. M. Olivier Trémouille & Marie-Thé were once again superb hosts and we thank them both for enhancing our stay.
It is a totally amazing property set among beautiful trees. In a friendly and tranquil neighbourhood
Le Pignol is an ideal place to spend time in Sarlat and its surroundings. We started up as two travellers from Australia and the had other family members joining us from Switzerland. The house accommodated easily all the coming and goings.
Spacious light filled bedrooms, very comfortable beds, 2 generous bath rooms. The two kitchens are equipped with all mod cons. There is a generous amount of very stylish crockery and cutlery available which makes it easy to make full use of the dishwasher when there are a few people in the house. The pool and jacuzzi are kept in perfect order ready for a dip or a swim. Unfortunately for us the weather had cooled down a bit by then. So we enjoyed lounging beside the pool when the sun did shine. From there we occasionally could spot a little red squirrel scampering by and checking us out.
The different balconies surrounding the house gives stunning views of Sarlat and beyond the church bells ringing in the mornings or lunchtimes.
The walk to the history filled medieval town is only 5 minutes away going downhill there and uphill on the way back. Great little exercise to counteract all the local fresh and delicious fair on offering.
Above all our hosts Olivier and Marie Thé were exceptional welcoming. We did not have a car so Marie Thé picked us up from the station and again brought us back there after our stay. They were at all times available on the phone or by text. They are the most generous warmhearted people anyone could wish for. We felt a little sad to leave. Hopefully there might be another chance to spend some time at this enchanted place. "Le Pignol " for us a truely "Happy House "
Wonderful property in lovely area with attentive (but not intrusive) owner
We had a great fortnight in this property, which is very well appointed and equipped. We enjoyed using the heated pool and Jacuzzi in the lovely weather and it provided a great base for seeing some of the Dordogne area. We thoroughly recommend it.
Comfortable and well-equipped house in a great location
Enjoyed a great week in Sarlat. Very friendly welcome from the owners. We all loved the pool and hot-tub - especially our 3 children. Great view across the town and very quiet location. Very spacious both inside and out.
