average rating of 5.0 based on 8 reviews

Perfect getaway, great views

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for our needs and the specific points are

The terrace which is straight outside the front door was a good size and most importantly always partly in shade and partly in sun so you could move to keep cool or warm up.

The lounge area was cool, stone flagged and a beamed ceiling. With two comfortable chairs and as an added bonus unexpectedly several UK TV channels. It has central heating and a log burning stove neither of which we used.

The kitchen area is small but adequate for holiday needs.

The bedroom is large with sloping ceilings and old rafters all tastefully decorated with the shower room adjacent.

The only downside was that the Internet connection was intermittent. This was due to the router being next door and the thickness of the stone walls. There is a hard wired USB lead but having only taken a tablet we could not use it. Virginie is aware of the problem and is looking into how to sort it and if it goes off for some time will reboot the system. Because she also uses a hard wire she is not aware when the router goes off.

Virginie is an excellent host, she is there if you need her but leaves you to your privacy if you do not.

Best Location

  • 5 of 5

The location and views from the house were better than advertised. The house was perfect for 2 people. Virginie was very helpful and made us feel very welcome. The house is situated just below the castle tower and you feel like you are part of a medieval town, not just touring. We were able to visit all the sites (Sarlat, Rocamadour, Perch Merl etc) easily but enjoyed walking around Turenne the best. We took several hikes from the house. There is a grocery store 15 min away but had to go to Brive to get gas as the gas station only accepted EU credit cards. You do need a car.

friendly welcoming place

  • 5 of 5

Virginie and Michel are welcoming and friendly hosts. They look after their guests in a genuinely caring way even though it is a self catering place they share any extra produce they have and make sure that your stay is comfortable. The accommodation is clean and full of character and the terrace has an absolutely wonderful view over the valley and up to the castle. Turenne is a pleasant historic town and a good place for local walking and a perfect base to explore the region. We stayed for two weeks in October '10 and enjoyed every day and look forward to returning. We stayed at many lovely places on our 3 month trip in Europe and this was the most welcoming.

Spectacular stay and incredible hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed in this lovely accommodation for 3 weeks in June/July. We couldn't have chosen anything more superior: our views, the house, the village, and most importantly, THE WONDERFUL HOSTS! The Tronche's treated us like family and we actually had tears on departure day! If you're lucky enough like we were, their generosity and warm hospitality will etch a spot on your heart. We can't thank you enough Michel, Virginie and Gaelle!!!

Turrenne 2-9 August 08

  • 5 of 5

The House was completely charming, and spotlessly clean. It was very well equipped with everything we needed and the owners Le and Michel made us feel very welcome. The bed was particularly comfy!

We spent a lot of time on the terrace, as the view was amazing, and the terrace is covered in vines which was very pretty. Just behind the house you can look up to see the tower of the castle, which is spectacular.

The village is very quaint and a lot of tourists visit but it's still an idylic location.

It was fairly easy to get to the major tourist spotts in the Dordogne. Nothing is more than 45 minutes away in the car, but you do need a car! Very highly recommended. If we went back to the Dordogne region, we would consider staying there again.

Douillet confort.

  • 5 of 5

En tout point recommandable.Tout d'abord pour l'accueil qui était des plus chaleureux et courtois.La maisonnette a une terrasse qui nous offre un panorama très bucolique sur la campagne du Limousin? Très spacieuse pou deux personnes.Turenne est un tres joli village qui peut servir de point de depart pour des excursions aux alentour.Bref une semaine inoubliable.
