Beautiful, period property. Loads of charm but air conditioning and great kitchen and pool.
Owners were lovely. So much to see in the area. A great location but rural and quiet at the same time. We would definitely recommend to friends.
An absolutely gorgeous house and pool - highly recommend it!
We have just returned from a wonderful two weeks at this property, we have stayed in many french sites over the years and this was one of our favourites. It is a charming old barn but whilst it retains all it's character, it has very modern luxurious fixtures and fittings and was a joy to spend time in. The garden and pool area were lovely, so peaceful and a great place to relax. Although the owners are on site, they are incredibly discreet so you have the best of both worlds in terms of being able to contact them when you want but not being disturbed during your stay. The house is about a 7 min drive to Rouffignac which has a great bakery, a few cafes and a supermarket. Further afield, the Vezere river is roughly 25 mins drive away and has some lovely villages and great places to swim (esp St Leon sur Vezere which is definitely worth a visit). Would definitely recommend this house!
More Rustic than Luxurious
I am writing this review according to the guidelines.
We were a group of 8 people (4 couples) who ` stayed in this Holiday house in Perigord from the 4th June -11th June 2011. The Countryside and peaceful setting was all accurately described by the owners. Perigord is just one of many beautiful towns in the Dordogne and the local village of Rouffignac is a peaceful quiet village with a good supermarket and lots of good local restaurants. The kitchen was large and well kitted out and the dining area and lounge area were comfortable....as was the outside eating area in' the shadow of the old walnut tree'.... but the bedrooms fell far short of the 'Luxurious' Farmhouse we were expecting...with the exception of the downstairs bedroom....The other bedrooms were situated up in the eves of the farmhouse...with very low 'cross beams' to duck under as you moved about the room ...we left with very sore heads! Many of the amenities and services listed in the property were not made available to us, too many to mention here Disappointed that the self contained 'Clediere' did no have a lounge with bread oven and the utility facilities were not made available to us. The Property was clean and tidy on our arrival ...but the pool was not maintained while we were there. The owners were very friendly with welcome drinks and were very helpful with suggestions of what to do and what to see ......and suggested a couple of local Restaurants where the food was indeed very good, and lastly, would we recommend this Holiday property to a Relative or Friend.....no..... on the grounds that the bedrooms are uncomfortable and could be dangerous. Not recommended for toddlers, children, 50+ ..... or for people of average or above average height.
We will remember this group for a long time since it is the first time EVER that we had to use the « security deposit » to cover the damages they caused and the extra charges we had in cleaning the house after their departure : garbage not sorted, not taken to the containers for ONE FULL WEEK, scattered all over the house, furniture moved, deep scratches in the wooden floors, etc, etc : a pigsty ! Sorry, no other words… it is the first time EVER guests showed such disrespect for our property !
This is probably why Mrs “B” does not sign her full name (her neighbours could recognize her!), and why she searches revenge by posting this “review”.
Let us be very clear :
1. we DO NOT WELCOME uneducated and disrespectful people like the party of Mrs “B”… and we hope she tells all her friends!
2. all the amenities and services described in the ad have always been and are still available to everyone (including the bread oven, 3 m by 3 m, probably too small for Mrs “B” to see…)
3. The houses are old and authentic, which includes some low beams – this is detailed in the contract (and in no way hidden to the guests, who know well in advance).
4. All the beds are 5000+ EUR (Hästens or SixSprings) and all rooms are air-conditioned : we bet that Mrs “B” doesn’t sleep that comfortable at home !
5. In 3 years, we had lots of toddlers, and children, and 50+, and very tall guys… who never hit a beam !
Last but not least, a question for Mrs “B” : please tell us if/when/where you could find better at 15 EUR/day/person in June with private pool and air-conditioned bedrooms!
Repos en Périgord
Le Puridier est un joli hameau composé de plusieurs bâtiments très jolis.
Plusieurs gîtes de différentes tailles isolés les uns des autres tous avec piscine.
Accueillis par des propriétaires très gentils toujours disponibles .
Les longues soirées d été sont très agréables , manque un éclairage du jardin.
Séjour reposant et dépaysant .
Ancienne maison dont le rez-de-chaussée est très bien aménagé. Très bonne literie.Par contre , l’escalier menant à l’étage ( aux 2 chambres et salon TV) est très difficile et sans rampe.
La piscine est grande MAIS ne dispose pas de
l’équipement permettant de la chauffer, contrairement à ce qui était écrit dans l’annonce . Or,la piscine chauffée était pour moi un critère fondamental.
Les Eyzies-de-tayac: 20 Km
Sarlat: 35 km
River: 20 Km
Shops: 5 Km
Town center: 5 Km
Close to all the main tourist sites of Périgord (Les Eyzies, Sarlat, Montignac-Lascaux, Périgueux, Vézère valley, Dordogne valley, ...) and only 20km from an important motorway link (A89), the property is located in the countryside, in an enchanting environment.
It will delight lovers of relaxation with its private swimming pool and its shaded terrace, the bon vivant with its tasty regional cuisine that can be tasted in countless restaurants nearby, lovers of hiking or mountain biking who start at the door, history lovers since it is located in the heart of the 'Vallée de l'Homme'.
In summary: all the advantages of tourism, but without the disadvantages!
