Idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

A lovely warm welcome from Mitch the owner with a thoughtful and generous hamper of goodies. Spacious villa with open fire. Wonderful views on all sides and a super swimming pool. A peaceful and relaxing hideaway.

Two weeks aren't long enough!

  • 5 of 5

The five of us, two adults, two children (12 and 8) and our dog, had the most relaxing two week summer holiday. Loco's Lodge is set on the edge of a very quiet hamlet not far from the village of Lauzun. The property is very private and has plenty of safe outdoor space for the kids and the dog to play. The pool, that we all spent hours in everyday, is cleaned every morning by the lovely owner, Mitch. The kitchen and indoor space is comfortable and well equipped; there's everything you'll need. The local roads are very quiet, safe for cycling and running. We had plans to visit some of the local sites but after a couple of days de-stressing we felt no urge to go anywhere so we just enjoyed the time together as a family and the tranquility. We only took the car out a handful of times to go to supermarket for supplies and to visit Eymet market on a couple of occasions.

We'd highly recommend this place. It's perfect if you're looking for absolute peace and relaxation away from everything and everyone.

Wonderful roomy dog-friendly gite with great pool

  • 5 of 5

Great stay at a wonderful property with our German Shepherd Dog, Max. Everything was exactly as we hoped it would be - the gite is very roomy, beautifully appointed, very clean and tidy and in a pleasantly quiet area just a few miles from Lauzun and its village facilities. The sun also happened to shine for the duration of our week at Loco's Lodge! The kind hospitality shown by Mitch (and her dog, Brandy) upon arrival - and indeed throughout our stay - was much appreciated, as was the well-stocked fridge and the selection of wines provided for our consumption. One of the key attributes for us was the dog-friendly nature of Loco's Lodge, not least with the dog-friendly tiled pool, and the selection of shaded or sunny terraces for chosen preference throughout the day. There are various sight-seeing options in the area, but other than a few shopping trips to Eymet and Saint-Pardoux, we instead chose to make full use of the excellent facilities and simply chill out. We have stayed in many villas and gites in southwest France with our dog over recent years, and would struggle to nominate a property more suited to us than Loco's Lodge. We would have no hesitation in recommending Loco's Lodge to friends and family seeking to relax in a similar holiday villa in the away-from-it-all summer sunshine. Moreover we would undoubtedly seek to return ourselves, perhaps for a longer stay.

Brilliant Holiday :)

  • 5 of 5

Could not ask for a better holiday with a dog so already booked for next year! The area and gite are stunning! My dog was able to roam free and loved swimming in the pool and relaxing on the sunbeds! Kids loved it as they had wi-fi! Mitch was great! She stocked up our fridge on arrival and was there if we had any questions about local area...she even sorted out the vet appointment for our return journey! So relaxing and idyllic and weather was fabulous! So many lovely memories :)
