About Pascale Soulez Larivière

For many years working as a photographer in Paris, we were in hurry to come back home for too rare and too shorts holidays. On the way back to Paris we were really sad thinking how the space, the light, peaceful landscapes, the hills, the seasons in the Périgord would miss us in town. Finally with water, electricity & the Internet high-speed reaching our houses in the middle of the wood, it was possible to work and live there all around the year. And we are glad to be able to share it with you now.

Pascale Soulez Larivière purchased this house in 1960

Why Pascale Soulez Larivière chose Simeyrols

My Grand mother used to live there. She's been traveling all the around the world and has decided that the Périgord was the right place to get retired, with beautiful landscapes, houses and castles behind every curves. My dad started the renovation and during 30 years gave it the essential: water & electricity. And we've been working on these Farmhouses for the last twenty years to up date their comfort and decoration. That way you will have a cosy place to stay. And we will give all our best addresses for you to appreciate this part of France, as we do since we are born.

What makes this house unique


• Well located in heart of the Golden Triangle of Black Perigord, close do many remarkable places

• Major Cultural & Gastronomic potential.

• Where we offer you space and tranquillity, to really relax with the dependencies of a property with a friendly & warm family atmosphere rather impersonal bedrooms

• What makes our environment serene and seductive, hard to leave (some of our guests already bought a house nearby ! )

Wonderful Gite in Simeyrols

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the small cottage/gite on this property for one week in September and had a fabulous time. September and October offer warm, sunny weather (75-82F), and the towns are not crowded so sightseeing is a joy! The cottage has lovely furnishings throughout as well as a modern bathroom and kitchenette. The kitchenette is fully equipped with appliances, cookware, dishes and glassware. The grounds, outdoor patio and pool areas are beautiful. The pool is heated to 89F. The owner, Pascale, is friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. She speaks English fluently and provided helpful tips for our day trips. Go and have a wonderful time!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended for a taste of the real Perigord. Our cottage was comfortable and nicely furnished and the country location was spectacular in the Spring. Pascal, our host truly excelled at making us feel at home and ensured we visited the considerable important sites in the area.

Teurer Urlaub mit vielen Enttäuschungen!

  • 2 of 5

-Das landestypische Ferienhaus befindet sich auf einem wunderbar großen, schönen, rundum eingezäunten Grundstück. Die Landschaft an der Dordogne um Sarlat war die Reise wert! Mitsamt dem einmaligen Sternenhimmel mit sichtbarer Milchstraße!! vergeben wir einen Stern.

-Der schöne große Pool hat uns auch sehr gefallen.

-Es war alles sauber. Mein Mann und unsere Tochter waren begeistert vom "Flipper" im Wohnzimmer! An dieser Stelle vergeben wir den zweiten Stern. Da wir leider auch Vieles kritisieren müssen, vergeben wir keine weiteren Sterne. Wir beginnen bei der Ankunft:

-Wir wurden von der Eigentümerin vorwurfsvoll mit den Worten begrüsst, wir wären zu früh da!

-Das "Kinderzimmer" befand sich weit entfernt, nur von draußen durch einen Zahlencode zugänglich, im Dachgeschoss des Hauses. Aus Sicherheitsgründen hat mein Mann dort übernachtet!

-Massive Probleme mit dem Internetzugang, nicht überall WLAN, womit geworben wird!

-Safe war kaputt!

-Manchmal wehte ein Fäkaliengeruch, wohl aus einer Sickergrube, um unsere Terrasse!

-Zum Frühstück wurden wir während der zwei Wochen nicht ausreichend mit Brot versorgt! Wir mussten nachfragen und selbst danach funktionierte der versprochene Service nicht!

-Die drei wirklich lieben Hunde der Eigentümerin "verirrten" sich häufig zu uns. Nicht weiter schlimm, dennoch mussten wir sehr auf unser Essen achten, sie waren ständig auf Nahrungssuche und wir mussten die Türen geschlossen halten.

-Ein Karaoke - Abend fand direkt vor unserem Schlafzimmerfenster statt! Es war so laut, dass die Scheibe vibrierte! Zusätzlich mussten wir uns vom Animateur noch eine Beleidigung anhören, denn er rief lauthals in sein Mikrofon, "die Deutschen" würden sich wohl verstecken, da wir nicht teilnehmen wollten. Darauf angesprochen, verhielt sich die Eigentümerin nicht kritikfähig! Sie hat nur alles dementiert und sich nicht einmal entschuldigt! Wohlgefühlt haben wir uns dann gar nicht mehr. Den Rest des Urlaubs wurden wir sogar von der Eigentümerin ignoriert!

-Schade, dass die schöne graue "Ente" zugemüllt und verwahrlost dastand, das Auto wurde leider nicht so präsentiert wie im Inserat! Bei näherem Hinsehen war u.a. auch die Wohnung viel zu voll mit diversem Krimskrams! Auf den Fotos im Inserat sieht das anders aus.

Die winzige Toilette sieht man nicht einmal auf Fotos. Kein Wunder! Sie befindet sich unter einer Treppe in einer Abstellkammer!

- Fazit: Ein teurer Urlaub mit vielen Enttäuschungen! Schade!

Owner's Response: Désolée pour un séjour pas à la hauteur de vos attentes, mais ne parlant pas allemand & votre français trop fragile rendaient nos échanges compliqués & vous avez perçu des propos anodins comme péjoratifs. Je vous ai accueilli non avec reproche mais sur un ton surpris m’inquiétant de savoir comment s’était passé votre trajet. Idem lors de la soirée, vous interprétez nos propos «Vivre caché» qui ne vous visaient pas, c’était juste un commentaire sur l‘agencement de mes maisons, le poète disant «pour vivre heureux, vivons cachés» Ai abandonné mes autres convives pour m’en expliquer avec vous. Le percevoir comme insultant encore aujourd'hui et nous en faire reproche, relève du harcèlement voir de la diffamation. Quant au pain du petit-déj, il est livré 2 x /semaine SUR DEMANDE formulée la veille. Mais ayant retrouvé des aliments frais mis à votre disposition, directement balancés à la poubelle, ai pensé que aviez d’autres habitudes alimentaires. Et si je fais 30km gratuitement pour chaque A/R boulangerie & ferme pour vous être agréable, seul le 1er petit déj. est offert, comme indiqué au contrat, VOS commandes de pain & consommation de laitage étaient à me rembourser. Partis sans vous en inquiéter, j'ai supposé que malgré notre contrat adressé en Anglais, vous n’aviez pas saisi ses nuances & n’ai pas pour autant été dire sur internet que vous étiez malhonnêtes Oui, Dommage que vous ayez choisi un type d’hébergement qui ne vous correspondait pas (alors que j’ai refusé de nombreuses familles appréciant les lieux qui voulaient revenir à ces dates). Pour le coup vous n'en retenez que les détails qui ne vous ont pas plu, pourtant faciles à solutionner en m'en parlant ou juste circonstanciels & indépendants de ma volonté. Je ne comprends toujours pas que l’on cherche un autre mode de vie en vacances pour être en rupture avec son quotidien et finalement vous nous réclamez un hébergement standardisé dans des fermes du XIXe ! Dommage que vous ayez mal interprété toutes nos intensions, notre dévouement et notre discrétion & que vous n’ayez pas su apprécier à sa juste valeur les 60m2 de ce gîte loué au prix d’un mobile home de 35m2, (bien équipé pour répondre aux attentes non pas d’une mais de TOUTES les familles reçues avec de quoi se distraire sur place qlq soit l'âge, la météo & la saison), pas plus que vous ne semblez avoir apprécié le repas offert le soir de votre arrivée comme la pléiade de prestations incluses quand facturées en supplément ailleurs !!!

Excellent two weeks in this lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We spent two fabulous weeks in this very nice Gîtes. The house feels like a real original house from the region. Decorated with love and details, it has a special atmosphere that feels like vacation in France. We especially like the historic Flipper “Indiana Jones” and the original Juke Box that was running all day for us. The heated pool was large and perfectly situated by the house. Our two kids loved to use it almost every day. Being located in Simeyrols, it was possible to easy do day trips to all important Perigord locations like castles, botanical gardens, historic towns, caves and of course the Dordogne river where canoeing is the perfect sport. Last but not least it needs to be mentioned that Pascale is a perfect organizer and she can make almost everything happen. Thank you again for all your support Pascale !! Greetings from Frankfurt, Germany.

Un weekend de rêve dans une magnifique propriété

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un weekend absolument délicieux notamment grâce à l'accueil de Pascale, sa bonne humeur et son indiscutable talent culinaire (impossible de tout mentionner ici, tout était juste bcp trop bon) !!

Pascale nous a bien conseillé pour notre visite à Sarlat (très bons restaurants) et notre activité de Canoë sur la Dordogne.

La propriété de Pascale est tout bonnement magnifique avec un superbe jardin donnant sur la vallée. La piscine chauffée à 31° était également très agréable !

En bref, nous avons passé un weekend inoubliable et ne manqueront pas de venir lors de notre prochain passage dans la région.

Merci Pascale !
