About Lambert Corinne
Opening a gite is above all a family affair! We will be happy to welcome you here!
Lambert Corinne purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Lambert Corinne chose Bergerac
The surroundings are stunning. The view of the river is breathtaking.
What makes this Cottage unique
We built the wooden raised cabin (covered) that overlooks the water offering a unique viewpoint of the Dordogne River. The house is warm and comfortable thanks to its furniture and the Chinese decorations from the most beautiful antiques fairs in Perigord. Each room boasts high quality bedding and a TV.

An Idyllic spot on the Dordogne
The perfect place to stay near Bergerac. Beautiful House, everything you need is provided, interior design really classy. Corinne and Damien are the perfect hosts - welcoming and full of daily advice about what to do. A 5 star holiday home.
Thank you so much for your kind review. It was a pleasure to meet you!! We hope to see you again!! Corinne and Damien x
Would love to be "along the River" everyday !! it was just PERFECT !
Absolutely do not know where to begin, our stay was perfect in every way!!!
- from the clear communications when booking and pre-arrival advice- we counted on something wonderful - BUT had no idea that it would be as perfect as it was.
Corrine and Damien ( though we did not meet him) have given every consideration as to what their "guests" would need to make them totally "chez soi" and they succeeded 200%
The home is all yours- perfectly set along the side of the calm & beautiful Dordogne, this 18th century farm house has been totally redone and reconfigured. New and luxurious bathrooms and a kitchen that cries out for going to the food market in Bergerac and returning with lots of goodies to prepare. The kitchen lacks nothing - everything you could possibly need.
The grounds are expansive with ping pong table, petanque and badminton all there for you to enjoy !, pool a great plus, and perfectly maintained. Our "spot" was the lovely deck area built alongside the Dordogne- just the place for a glass of wine and some Foie Gras on toast!
We are already considering when to return- it was truly a lovely stay. and Corrine is a jewel- and definitley goes out of her way to make sure your stay at "your home away from home" is PERFECT... and it was !
Oh my gosh Meryl! What an extraordinary review. We would like to thank you with all our heart!! And Damien is so frustrated not to have had the chance to meet you two, as he was very busy with his work that week!! So really, how exciting it would be to see you again as it was for me a beautiful encounter to meet you. And you two are the exact reason why we have decided to have this gîte.
A wonderful few days which felt like weeks! It was so relaxing...
From the first email to book... Corinne and Damien (our Hosts) were the most helpful you could ever wish for. They have decorated their Gite beautifully and thought of absolutely everything. The Gite was immaculate, the pool was lovely, the decking area overlooking the river is just gorgeous. Bergerac and the surrounding area (vineyards and mediaeval villages) made the stay even more interesting.
We will definitely return - and that is a first...
This really is a 5 star property with 5 star hospitality. From arriving to leaving Corrine and Damien went out of their way to make our stay special. Having stayed in many places this really is one of the best properties, beautifully furnished and fully equipped to make your stay perfect. Bergerac is a walk away and is a delight. Lovely market, restaurants and shops. We can not rate this property and our hosts highly enough and we will be returning, hopefully in the not too distant future.
Our little piece of heaven and home away from home
This is a little piece of heaven on the Dordogne river just outside Bergerac.
it is so peaceful, with an abundance of wildlife, Herons, Black Kites, Buzzards,Jays, Magpies, Woodpeckers, Squirrels, Starlings, Swifts, Butterflies, Lizards, Fish and some smaller birds we have yet to identify.
Our hosts, Corinne and Damien, are such a lovely couple who could not do enough for you, they felt like friends before we got there due to our contact via email, they were friends by the time we came home. Corinne was helpful in suggesting places to visit and with her daily emails informing of us of events in Bergerac.
The gite is beautiful, the kitchen was the best equipped we have ever encountered, the beds were comfortable, there is plenty of room for relaxing and dinning in and outside, the pool was very welcoming as we were so very lucky with the weather, there was Table Tennis, Badminton and a Trampoline for those feeling more energetic, all set in a wonderful garden. The covered decked seating area overlooking the river was just perfect.
A 20 minute walk and you were at the port in the old town of Bergerac.
We can not wait to return to our little piece of heaven, I highly recommend you give this a try, you will not want to go home, we didn't.
Beautiful Accommodation with fabulous views
Our family stayed at this wonderful Gite (which is more like a villa) in June 2016 for two weeks. The Gite was perfect, beautifully furnished and exceptionally clean, with interesting classic antique furnishings for the most which had a shabby chique feel. The heated pool was a great asset, especially when it was 30 degrees in the sunshine, although there was plenty of shade with trees to sit under or the pergola at the end of the garden looking onto the river with it's lovely views.
The Gite was well equipped with satellite TV in the main room and French channels on the TVs in the bedrooms. DVD player in the children's bedroom.
Lots of facilities for children (and some adults too) in the garden such as table tennis, badminton and a very large trampoline. there are also two bikes in the garage that the owners kindly let us use.
The owners Corrine and Damien were very welcoming and had bought some groceries, fruit and bread on our arrival and also a very kind gift of flowers and champagne for our 30th wedding anniversary. Also Corrine was very kind in taking the time to email me on a daily basis with suggestions of places to visit or letting me know where there was a market etc. on specific days. this was really helpful.
The airport is very convenient and only five minutes away by car, it is a very small airport with limited flights which do not bother you in the Gite at all (only a couple of flights a day).
Bergerac is about a brisk 20 minute walk from the Gite, there is a busy road with no pavement to walk on for part of the walk, which is a little off putting but not too bad. However, by car the town is 5 minutes and there is lots of free parking available. There are many supermarkets nearby, so there is plenty of choice. The Intermarche has a petrol station at the rear where the prices are very good compared to some service stations. Bergerac and the surrounding area is beautiful, lots to see and do. You shouldn't miss a visit to Monbazzilac to visit the Chateau and partake in some wine tasting, by the way you can see the Chateau all lit up from the Gite in the evening it looks wonderful.
Overall I would highly recommend this beautiful Gite for a holiday to anyone looking for a relaxing and peaceful holiday in a picturesque environment. We had a wonderful holiday and I'm sure if your reading this and decide to book that you will too.
