The house is located at a place called 'Lassalle', 400 m from the pretty village of Gimbrède. We even live on site, in another part of the place. Your house is completely independent. Of course you can use the pool at your leisure, we provide maintenance and cleaning. The gazebo offers welcome shade for lunch and will also be very pleasant evening at sunset and beyond.
Overall we were impressed with our holiday home, there were 4 of us in our party (3 adults 1 child)
Finding it was a bit tricky some more detailed driving directions would have been useful rather than the very basic google map in the end we had to call owner who came and met us in the centre of the village and we followed them to the property.
House had everything you could have needed for your holiday, fabulous kitchen complete with plenty of pans, crockery, utensils etc. I was never like Oh I could have just done that.....
Personally I think you'd struggle to house more than 4-6 people as there is only one shower room, comfortable seating was a sofa and single chair so no more than 4 people could sit in the lounge but a lovely big dinning table with 8 chairs. The 2 bedrooms upstairs had double beds but theses were extremely low even with the mattress you would be not more than a 1.5 foot off the floor something to bear in mind if any of you party are elderly and all the bulbs in the bedside lights needed replacing.
Outside space was brilliant although no lighting they didn't appear to be working so it was dinner by candle light if you wanted to be outside, or by the light off your mobile phone to get the house open if you came back late at night. However the pool was great and this is where we spent the majority of our time.
Despite being on the property we rarely saw the owners and certainly didn't uncomfortable and I was very grateful for their assistance when I had a flat battery they very kindly helped me push my car to start it.
Would i recommend the property to a friend? yes I would
We stayed with René and Sylvie for a week in April. A truly magnificent experience. Superb accommodation, wonderful location and surrounds.
The cottage itself is more than big enough for a family of 4. 3 bedrooms and 1.5 well appointed bathrooms. Kitchen and dining area with everything you might need. (Even a choice of coffee machine)
Outside area (covered or open) for dining al fresco/BBQ.
Pool is available should you feel the need.
The house is well located for the local markets and is a fabulous base from which to explore the area which is spectacular.
René and Sylvie made us feel like part of the family with genuine warmth and French hospitality!
I would recommend this property without hesitation!
A very nice place. Located outside Gimbrede it is very peaceful, offering impressive views over the rolling countryside.
The old stone house is detached from the owners' own place and has been renovated to provide comfort and all the modern amenities.
Mr and Mrs Burckel take pride in providing a high quality service. We appreciated that sheets, towels, hair dryer etc were provided and we found all the kitchen utensils we could think of.
We enjoyed the garden, played table tennis, used the swimming pool, went for walks on the quiet country roads, visited picturesque nearby towns and villages, went to markets, feasted on the local cuisine, treated the children to a tree-climbing adventure. Really, that ticked all our boxes!
La maison est située sur une colline dominant la campagne avec une très belle vue.
L'équipement de la maison est irréprochable y compris le nécessaire pour notre petite Judith (7 mois) et le linge de maison est fourni (pratique quand la voiture est déjà bien remplie). La tonnelle permet de bénéficier du soleil dès le matin et apporte de l'ombre au moment les plus chauds de la journée.
La piscine avec transats et matelas.
Tous les commentaires sont élogieux et c'est mérité. Un lieu où aller en toute confiance.
Merci encore à Mme et M. BURCKEL pour leur accueil, leur gentillesse et leur discrétion.
un gite formidable : clair, moderne, très fonctionnel
une piscine très agréable et une vue magnifique
le linge de lit et serviettes de bains fournies (c'est bien appréciable).
quant aux propriétaires, Sylvie et Renée, ils sont très accueillants, de très bon conseil et aux petits soins tout en se faisant très discrets. Dommage que nous n'avons pu séjourné qu'une semaine, le 2ème gite que nous avons loué juste après dans le Lot et Garonne nous a fortement déçu. Nous avons amèrement regretté le gite de Sylvie et René.
A peine nos vacances terminées que nous n'avons qu'une envie ... y revenir.
Un endroit merveilleux, au calme avec un décor digne d'un grand film. Tout est fait pour vous permettre une détente totale. La région regorge également de lieux magiques à visiter.
Merci à Sylvie et René pour leur gentillesse et leur accueil. Ils sont aussi de très bon conseil pour les bonnes adresses.
En conclusion, un endroit qui tient toutes ses promesses. Nous y reviendrons.
