Fabulous Holiday in a Wonderful Gite at a Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

Having spent a tremendous week at Loco’s Lodge in 2017, we quickly concluded that the location and facilities perfectly suited our requirements, and we accordingly booked the property for three weeks in June this year.

The gite was exactly how we remembered it – clean, tidy, roomy and well-appointed, with the crystal blue pool beckoning us for a dip before unpacking.

The hospitality shown by the owner Mitch both upon arrival, and throughout our stay was much appreciated, as was the complimentary wine and fridge provisions left for our consumption. Mitch clearly strives to keep the grounds of the gite in a well-groomed state, and she is particularly diligent in the ensuring the impressive tiled pool is maintained in a perfect condition – servicing it each morning after a previous day’s hard swimming by both two- and four-legged guests!

Mitch has two very friendly dogs of her own – Brandy (who is now getting on a little in years), and Charlie the pup. It was a pleasure to be greeted by these two each morning, and at different times throughout the day. Our own dog Max struck up quite a friendship with Brandy & Charlie and was quite happy to share his regular barbeque leftovers with them!

The nearest boulangerie is about four miles away in Lauzun and is open six days per week. Lauzun also has a lovely little park with a lake in the middle – which we had a spin around each morning with Max before or after collecting our daily bread.

We spent a couple of days sightseeing, but other than going out to buy provisions when required, we were just happy to chill out in this tremendous gite in the quiet French countryside – not least because the sun shone on twenty of the twenty-one days of our holiday!

We would have no hesitation in recommending Loco’s Lodge to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday (with or without a pet) in a very well-equipped gite located in wonderful surroundings.

Idyllic setting

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.
