Why Grant NEALE chose Perigord Blanc

What a great venue to stay. Grant and his family were a pleasure and so helpful. We had two young children with us and the area felt very safe for them. Pool and accommodation really great along with the fantastic patio area for eating in. Grant even let our three year old to have a pony ride where all the family attended.

The only negative was eating out as there are some lovely restaurants but its catching them open and we had a French holiday on one day which was a Thursday so everything was closed but we didn't know about this so went out for food & shopping. We gave up trying to find restaurants to cater for our family and open longer than 1 hour but made the most of the outdoor dining area at the venue and fantastic markets to stock up,.

I cannot recommend this property highly enough. The setting, the villa itself and the owners were absolutely astounding. The location of the villa was convenient with easy access to many stunning villages and towns. The owners couldn't have been more accommodating and accessible any query or assistance needed was met and always with a smile. The villa was spacious and great for young children with the open plan kitchen and lounge. The pool area was kept well and cleaned regularly. This is a property we will definitely be returning to many times as a family.

Home from home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the privacy of the Orangerie with its lovely wide terrace and new cool outdoor room, which was perfect if you wanted to sometimes escape the hot sun!

The house has a dual aspect with views across fields and woods, allowing views of the spectacular sunsets either from the rear balcony or the pool. There is a well planned kitchen with breakfast bar and we liked the ground floor bedrooms with their individual showers and basin. The upper floor is a suite of bedroom, bathroom and dressing room which we found spacious and comfortable.

All in all our week spent here was peaceful and most enjoyable. Grant was very helpful if we ever needed anything, and watching the ponies grazing in the nearby fields was a real treat for city dwellers like ourselves!

What a wonderful place! Beautiful surroundings, great for children and adults alike. Grant, the owner, was on hand if needed and we all managed to get some much needed sun and relaxation.

A wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

Hello Grant and Kiki, you live in an idyllic spot and we thoroughly enjoyed sharing it with you for a week. I believe Grace has found her spiritual home!! It was really lovely chatting to Kiki about children, home and life generally. Watching Grace riding was a real highlight as when Grace is contented I am also. Thank you again and bye for now. love Claire x

And here is the review from Grace

Hi Grace here, Thank you for everything! how is Du Du? My favourite parts of the holiday were riding Chubby, swimming in the pool and collecting apples and pears in my basket to give to the horses and just running around and exploring. Hopefully I can come again! love Grace x

Beautiful House and Grounds.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Dezie Manor (the Orangerie) for four weeks in June and is a great place for relaxing! It is very central to all the great tourist attractions. Staying in the Orangerie with family (three couples in total), it is ideal for big group. Very Roomy neat and tidy and has a fully equipped Kitchen (every thing you need).

Grant and Christelle were wonderful with our four year old boy. From the Barn you look out over paddocks one with very friendly horses and of evening you will see some beautiful sunsets. The weather in June here is great for an afternoon swim a then Happy hour with local Wine and Cheese on the verandah. Market day on Friday in Vergt is great to buy the some of the best fruit & vegies you will ever taste. The Local Golf course (Golf De La Marterie) is great and the dinning there is spectacular. Debbie the host will look after you. I would stay there again.
