Great place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Facilities were great and everything was well maintained and clean.

We came as a group of friends and had a great time away enjoying the local food, people and location in general.

Mark and Maggie were great hosts and would certainly recommend for a relaxing week away!

A FANTASTIC PLACE FOR A PEACEFUL HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5

The three of us spent 10 wonderful days here.We used La Panetterie as a base to explore the surrounding countryside with it's many pretty villages and towns. If you want to find out more about the area there is a blue folder full of things to see and do provided by the owner in the living room.We found everything we needed in the cottage, which is very well equipped,but just be aware that the oven has an automatic lock on the door which prevents you from opening it until the temperature drops, this is indicated by a small red padlock light which goes out when you can open it.The local village of Lubersac has a good selection of small shops as well as Super u and Lidl supermarkets.We met Sonia the caretaker and Keith,originally from Doncaster, who came in and cut the grass.We have to thank Sonia for recommending the town of Brantome,what a lovely place, and the 50 minute boat trip up and down the river is a must.If you need to know about the pros and cons of living in France either Keith or Sonia can fill you in.

We live in a very small village in rural Norfolk and are used to a pretty quiet life,but we were amazed at the stillness and complete lack of any noise when we stood outside in the late evening,as they say "The silence was deafening" and the absence of any light pollution meant we were treated to a fantastic star filled sky.

We would certainly recommend this property to anyone looking to "chill out" for a week or two and we may return ourselves at some point in the future.Richard,Topsy and mike

We spent a fantastic week at La Panetterie.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic week at La Panetterie. It is a very well equipped gite and caters for all ages. We were a family of 7 from ages 7 to 82yrs. Have stayed in several places in different countries and this is by far the best we have stayed in. There sare so many places to visit and there is a great pool with slides 10 mins away.

Thank you Pandora and will be returning in the near future.

Summer 2012

  • 5 of 5

We spent two memorable, relaxing weeks at La Panetterie. The property is located within a scenic, rural area and we witnessed the busy harvest activity during our stay. The house is the best equipped holiday home we have occupied over several years. It has huge private gardens to the front and rear with a panoramic view of the surrounding countryside,a particularly attractive location for the evening barbeque. Philip the caretaker maintains the pristine gardens and Sonia takes pride in the house.

We were thrilled to find that we had the use of 4 quality bikes which we used to tour the surrounding area.

The village of Lubersac is a 5 minute drive away. It is a sleepy, welcoming village with a range of attractions, including the patesserie/chocolatier for your fresh baguette and patesserie treats, Galbrinus the local hostelry, famous for its croque monsieur (which unfortunately we didn't get to sample) and its hospitality (which we witnessed first hand), Super U and the very well run municipal swimming complex,not to mention the pizzeria.

There is a range of attractive little towns and villages within easy reach, including Arnac-Pompadour where you must visit the Chateau, Restaurant 7 and the Ramparts bar. Uzerche with its lovely old quarter is worth a visit as is Segur le Chateau, one of a group of the prettiest villages in France.

Further afield, Brive la Gaillarde, about 40 minutes away, is worth a day visit.

We enjoyed our two weeks in La Panetterie at the end of which we were sorry not to have another week left,but we hope to return again in the not too distant future.

2 weeks at la panterrie

  • 5 of 5

we had a lovely two weeks ,the accomadation is lovely, very homely and welcoming, and very well equiped , the surrounding area is beautifull, we met the owner of the goat farm who was most welcoming and invited us to see the goats milked which we did, it was very enjoyable, you could also purchase their excellent goats cheese. Lubersac has an excellent outdoor swimming pool which we went to most days. The bikes were excellent, we had a really relaxing time with lots of barbieing and games in the garden.
