Lovely restored property quiet gardens and great pool
Had a lovely fortnight with great fun relaxing in the shady garden and playing with the kids in the pool and watching beautiful sunsets. Thanks for a lovely break in a lovely property in a great position- quiet relaxed and beautiful gardens.
A beautiful and peaceful place, reeeeelax.
Labrousse is a beautiful house full of character. Staying here is like stepping into another land. The gardens are so beautiful and the location so peaceful you can't help but relax. The house is full of character - a magical mixture of medieval dordogne architecture and treasures from around the world. If you like your accommodation immaculate and generic this is not the place for you (not that it wasn't clean - it was). The whole place has been lovingly restored by hand and it is full of the character of those who have worked on it and who've chosen to retain the original features. The furniture is all original pieces of good quality, not fitted modern MDF.
The beds were very comfortable. The balcony between the two towers is a beautiful place to relax and watch the sun sinking into the trees. The upper bedroom is accessed through the house - the children loved having a balcony to reach their room and the roof in there is amazing.
The house had everything that we needed - as stated in the description. The kitchen is on the ground floor with a wall of windows down one side looking at the garden - all with curved frames. The stainless steel kitchen was easy to keep clean and the oven has many rings and a double oven for baking. The dishwasher was a small one but we just ran it after each meal. There's a gas barbeque outside too.
To access the rest of the house you go outside and up the stairs, past the zen garden.
The living room was comfy and cool - it was hot outside! There's big telly and dvd player. The lighting is is a little idiosyncratic, it took a while to work out which switch did what.
The pool was lovely - mostly salt not chlorine which was nice, with good loungers and a great spot for sunset and bird watching. The pool was cleaned regularly and there were loads of towels for us to use. Bring your own bats for pingpong - they've been out in the sun too long!
The location is great for visiting the dordogne - far enough away from the busiest places to be peaceful but still surrounded my amazing medieval villages and beautiful wooded hillsides. It's about 5 miles to the boulangerie in Meyssac - there's a great market there twice a week and a small supermarket. Bigger supermarket at Martel which is a beautiful town. Great places to visit nearby - Collonges, Beaulieu, Curemont, Carrenac. Les Gouffres de Padirac are amazing.
What stands out for me though is the peace of Labrousse A blessing. Thank you
My favorite place in France
The property was faithful has the description. I felt at "home" immediately.
The owners are charming and helpful.
I would recommend this magic place to a friends or relative.
The location is excellent, a lot of attraction around
Thank you so much for your sweet recommendation. It it was a pleasure to receive you at Labrousse Cottage.
Charmante maison dans l'ensemble avec une très bonne literie (c'est important).
La piscine, bien que petite, est agréable et malgré la présence délevages à proximité nous n'avons pas eu de gêne particulire concernant les mouches (mauvaise expérience passe ailleurs).
Le seul point vraiment négatif, la vigne vierges sur les murs de la maison attirant de très nombreuses guêpes. Bien que ces dernières ne soient pas agressives, cela est resté une source de stress quotidien en particulier pour les enfants.
Merci pour vos appréciations sur Labrousse Cottage. Nous sommes désolés de vous avoir procuré du stress avec les petites guêpes sur la vigne vierge. Le bruit est impressionnant pour des enfants, mais elles sont inoffensives. Elles sont uniquement intéressés par les petites grapes de raisin de la vigne vierge.
Nous vous souhaitons une bonne fin de vacances.
