Pretty gite in fabulous area

  • 5 of 5

Lovely gite, perfect for 2 couples or a family. Also a large shared swimming pool which we made full use of as it was so hot!

The property was spotless, nice contemporary furnishings and the bed linen and towels were great quality.

Would recommend a trip to Monpazier and to The Josephine Baker chateau - great for lunch, interesting tour and falconry display.

'Absolutely Stunning'

  • 5 of 5

What can I say, La Fenil is absolutely lovely, beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, very well equipped with everything and more you would need for a fabulous self catering holiday. The plan of the gites is really well thought out with each party having their own private space but sociable at the same time. The gardens are stunning and really well maintained with plenty of open area for the kids to enjoy running about, especially the tramponline ! The property is quiet and peaceful despite being on the road to the village which was great as we would walk in to the bars and restaurants. Recommend Moulin de Beaune !! The whole family loved it and we are definitely going to return. The owners were there each day and were really helpful but not intrusive. Thanks Daryl and Nikki keep up the good work.

Excellent stay, will return

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent 2 week stay in La Fenil, which is a gite full of character in an excellent location, walking distance to a beautiful village with plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. Everything you could wish for is available and the swimming pool is very refreshing in the warm weather!
