What a find

  • 5 of 5

The property located in Castels near St.Cyprien was perfect for a week long exploration of Dordogne. Although rural we had excellent instructions on finding the property as we arrived in the dark after a delayed train. A wonderful pool (heated) was a bonus for this property. 6 adults had plenty of room to relax in this home. The home was equipped with everything necessary for any meals prepared there. The owners answered our questions and had a great booklet of information available for our use. Wonderful find.!!

Luxury in a charming setting

  • 4 of 5

Lovely old stables and farm property have been restyled to meet modern requirements. This is luxury in an idyllic house; but do not expect air conditioning, and accept some insects. The pool is absolutely great and perfectly and automatically cleaned.

  • 4 of 5

"How wonderful it was to walk through the door to a house that was CLEAN and it being a lovely stone property to also have had the attention to detail put into it with regards to the furniture and the finishing touches it was an absolute pleasure. The area was in a small hamlet and was very quite but still close to all the amenities. There was a great folder with a wealth of information in it on the surrounding area. We had a lovely stay at this property. The only down side which is nothing to do with the owners but the neighbour would come to the garden or shout from his window to tell us to be quite at 10pm even though we had no music on & were only talking & laughing outside :( "

dépaysement et tranquillité assurés !

  • 4 of 5

Dans un joli décor de pierre et de bois, le gîte offre confort et calme ainsi qu'une piscine agrémentant encore plus le séjour dans le village de Castels qui est bien situé pour explorer les nombreuses possibilités de découvertes dans ce beau Périgord qui n'en manque pas.

Notre hôte a fait preuve de ponctualité et de disponibilité chaque fois que nous l'avons sollicitée.

Je recommande cette belle adresse.

Magnifique propriété, calme et détente absolus...

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un très bon weekend dans cette maison de charme, au calme dans un hameau retiré. Tout est conforme à la description, très propre et fonctionnel. La piscine est très bien entretenue et agréable. Les environs évidemment magnifiques et riches de toutes sortes de visites et plaisirs.

Cependant l'accueil pourrait être plus chaleureux et basé sur davantage de confiance... De plus, quelques denrées et courses de base seraient aussi les bienvenues (condiments, produits ménagers, aliments de dépannage...). Histoire d'atteindre les 5 étoiles! Merci pour les prochains locataires...

Owner's Response: Nous avons apprécié recevoir ces vacanciers et sommes surpris de leur remarque concernant l’accueil sans doute due au fait que nous n’avons malheureusement pas pu répondre favorablement à leur désir de différer de quelques heures leur départ après la fin de leur séjour. Pour la confiance… Nous ne confirmons une réservation qu’à réception des arrhes et oui nous demandons une caution (rendue le jour du départ)… comme la majorité des propriétaires. Tous les produits ménagers nécessaires sont à disposition de nos locataires. Cependant, nous ne fournissons pas de produits alimentaires…. Et nous ne laissons pas non plus de produits entamés (huile, vinaigre…) pour des raisons d’hygiène.
