Love The Lot
This holiday home was perfect for us, a family of four with two children. Our son and daughter each had their own bedrooms and being located on the ground floor the rooms stayed lovely and cool in the very hot weather we were lucky enough to have. Two bedroom lead out into the pool terrace, where there’s a stunning 10 x 5m pool which was a perfect temperature for cooling off. The outside space was amazing. Alison and Dave provide very detailed information on things to do and see in the surrounding area. Even though we’ve been to France for 8 years we hadn’t ever experienced markets like the ones near here. Our favourite morning market being Issigeac and Beaumont-du-Périgord had a fab night market. Our only regret was that we should have stayed longer !
Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay. We are so pleased that you enjoyed our house and the delights of the local area.
Peaceful family getaway
We really enjoyed our week at Plein Sud. As a family of four looking for some time and space to relax it was perfect. Our kids spent most of their time in the pool, which is a great feature. The adults enjoyed evenings on the terrace with some chilled rosè.
The property is really well appointed and had everything we needed for our stay. By the end of our week we were relaxed and wishing we’d booked a 2nd week!
It’s clear that it has been much loved as a holiday home and we’d be very happy to return and spend more time here . . .
You are right we do love our French Haven and also delight in sharing it with such appreciative guests. We would love for you to return one day.. ( apologies for the 4 star communication comment.. a slip of the finger A )
Fabulous property in a great location
Great! An attractive property, superbly well equipped, in a quiet, peaceful location within easy reach of attractive towns Monpazier, Villereal, Beaumont and Issigeac. Alison and Dave were really helpful with lots of information ahead of our trip and at the property itself. Couldn't ask for more. All in all, a great venue.
Thank you for your lovely comments . Your comfort is very important to us.
From the moment we stepped across the threshold our time at Plein Sud was wonderfully relaxing and exactly what we were looking for.
The property was so much more than what we expected and the pictures, although lovely (obviously, as we booked) really do not do this beautiful home justice.
Plain Sud is extremely well appointed, with every conceivable detail thought about, which meant we did not need to think of anything, except to relax and enjoy ourselves. Plain Sud caters for everyone, whether it is solitude, a romantic break or family fun you are after Plein Sud is the number one choice.
The pool area is private and again very well appointed, we spent many an hour taking advantage of the secluded sun trap, with refreshing dips in the pool.
Unfortunately the weather was not in our favour but once again Plein Sud was to the rescue with the beautiful terrace, which we took full advantage of when the heavens opened, both in the day and night time.
The lake in the extended gardens of the property was a tranquil wildlife surprise, which we were not expecting, with the ducks and frogs chatting away to each other hour after hour.
We have visited the area in previous years so getting about was not a problem for us, even in the new areas we ventured to. Monpazier and Villereal are beautiful bastides which were a first visit for us and really did not disappoint, with great little boutique shops and restaurants.
We also took a trip to Chateau Biron, which is one of the most famous and historic Chateau’s in the local area, walking around you get a real sense of the grandness and splendour of this wonderfully restored historical monument.
Alison and Dave could not have been more helpful prior to our arrival, with clear details given to us in a helpful and friendly manner, making Plein Sud a home away from home even before we arrived.
We absolutely fell in love with this gorgeous home and we are already planning our next trip here with our family.
Thank you for your lovely comments. What better appreciation than for you to have felt so 'at home' .
We would be delighted to welcome you back.
What can I say? We had an amazing time with everything we needed for a fantastic holiday.
If you need peace and quiet you'll find it here. If you are interested in local markets, chateaux and scenic countryside you'll find that here too.
As far as the house is concerned, there is space to spare for teenagers to have some time to themselves, a great pool to cool off in and the choice eating inside or out. Everything we thought we could need was provided for us and more that we hadn't even thought of.
Although we enjoyed the hottest weather of the year (35 degrees plus) the bedrooms were cool enough to sleep comfortably.
From a nature point of view, there are clear dark skies to enjoy, lizards to find and a friendly frog who announces its presence with a plop as it lands on a door or a tile.
All in all it is well worth the drive through France to get here.
Thank you . What a joy to have such appreciative guests who share our love for the area.
We do hope that you can visit again sometime in the future.

Well equipped, peaceful gite
Lovely place, great pool, helpful owners. Set in our favourite area of France.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay, were comfortable and found our property ideally situated for exploring the beautiful Perigord /Dordogne/Lot et Garonne Regions.
We look forward to welcoming you back sometime.
Plein Sud is in the tiny hamlet of Bariats, 10 minutes drive from the beautiful 13th century town of Villereal, and 15 minutes from the towns of Monpazier, Beaumont, Monflanquin and Issigeac. All have bustling weekly markets, including vibrant night markets, as well as good supermarkets. The lovely towns of Bergerac and Viileneuve sur Lot are only half an hour away.
The castles, canoeing and prehistoric sites of the Dordogne valley are also about half an hour away. The wine regions of Monbazillac, Pecharmant, Cahors and Duras are all close at hand and the legendary vineyards of Bordeaux and St Emillion are a comfortable drive away.
A twenty five minute ride brings you to either Lougratte, a pleasure lake with a small beach, canoes, a diving platform and a waterslide or Parc en Ciel with rope courses and other exciting activities for all ages.
The local area caters for all tastes; water sports, wine sampling, gourmet dining, antiques and arts and craft markets together with chateaux and historic sites.
