About Janine or Anthony
Having taken several holidays in the Dordogne, we resolved to start a Gite business in the area, and after an exhaustive search, bought Laugerie Basse in May 2010. Very glad to be out of the city and into a wonderfully relaxed and stunningly beautiful part of the world. Due to our joie de vivre and relaxed attitude, we have made many friends here, and are very fortunate to have a lot of return guests from all over the world. We love it here and we are sure you will too!
Janine or Anthony purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Janine or Anthony chose Berbiguières
After spending many happy holidays in this region, we made a decision to have a life change. After viewing lots of properties, we came back to Laugerie Basse, our first viewing, and by far the best property we had looked at. We work in an environment that is not stressful. We are surrounded by beauty, both in and out of our property and have a dream life. We love people, so running a gite business has come as second nature. Both of us having worked in people industries. Anthony was in advertising and I was in marketing and training. This was such a great decision for us!
What makes this Apartment unique
We have wonderful and supportive community. The locals are very friendly, and we have made more than our fair share of friends while here. We are close to the shops and facilities of St Cyprien, Sarlat, Bergerac and Perigaux, so have the best of all worlds. We are rural without seclusion and in the heart of Dordogne, with all the tourist sites of interest, very close by. We have stunning countryside, are surrounded by history and have a feast of activities to enjoy throughout the year. The benefit of having such a large heated pool and 2 hectares of mature gardens with fruit trees and vines, is just a bonus. We love it here and are sure you will too!

This is a really fine place to stay!
Our hosts were both helpful and discrete. All the facilities (flat, pool, barbecue etc) were in perfect order, the park was big and peaceful with beautiful trees and plants, and Janine and Anthony had a fine balance between help and discretion. They really care for there guests and we were even invited to a dinner with there friends which was nice and very interesting as we met people from several European Countries. Saint Cyprien is not far away and this town has all you need. - we went there on bikes for market, going to restaurants and so on.
A wonderful stay
My wife and I had a wonderful week in our Gite. We were welcomed by Janine and Anthony and soon felt at home. We drove down from Calais with an overnight stay in Le Mans and our return journey a week later In Bagnoles-de-l'orne. The Gite was fully equipped for all that you would need with a lovely view of the gorgeous swimming pool and grounds. We swam everyday and enjoyed some great cycle rides, walks, canoeing and visits to spectacular Chateaux's. Janine and Anthony gave us some great tips on where to visit and eat. The Gite was in walking distance of St Cyprien a flat walk of 30 minutes over the bridge and into the town. There were various restaurants and bars but the town seemed very quiet except on Sunday (market day). The supermarket and petrol station also very handy for supplies. We will hold fond memories of sitting at our outside table watching the wildlife and also sharing a glass of wine or two with our wonderful hosts. We hope to be able to return in the future and enjoy again all the delights the Dordogne holds .
Very clean - well equipped, spacious with a lovely terrace with table & chairs to enjoy views.
Anthony & Janine couldn't have been more welcoming or hospitable. We given a guided tour & then sat with them to enjoy a glass of wine. The Gite was superb, plenty of cutlery - china and kitchen utensils. Very nice terrace right outside of the gite with table - chairs and umbrella to sit and while away the hours in an evening. The heated swimming pool was great with comfy sun loungers - barbecue area with table and chairs.
This was our first trip to France in the car and we couldn't have picked a better area or property to stay in. Myself, wife and 5 year old English springer spaniel thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
We would like to say a big thank you to Anthony & Janine for making us so welcome and making our first trip to France so enjoyable. We will be going back and would highly recommend this accommodation.
Great gite, beautiful setting, fabulous location
These gites are situated in a beautiful, unspoiled, rural location and yet walking distance from the nearest town and right on top of the river Dordogne which is fantastic for safe family canoeing. Our gite was very well set out and equipped with a very comfortable sofa bed in the lounge area and bedroom with gorgeous traditional French furniture - the best gite we have stayed in in France and great value for money. We really enjoyed the pool , just a stone's throw from the gites with quality sunbeds and surrounded by fields and lovely gardens. We made use of the brick-built bbq by the pool and the laundry room with free use of washing machine was a bonus. The hosts, Janine and Anthony were very welcoming and helpful. The welcome aperitif and canapes they put on was a lovely touch and we enjoyed a fabulous lunch with them and some other guests at a local restaurant on our last day. We highly recommend this property and the area - there is something for everyone - castles, caves and canoeing to name just a few of the many attractions.We highly recommend Laugerie Basse and intend to go back!
Amazing holiday with lovely, helpful owners
We had a wonderful holiday at these gites. Firstly, and as all the other reviews have said, they are brilliantly situated in this area. There is so much to do, for adults and kids, all within 20 minutes by car, all leaflets are found in the gites. The gites themselves and their facilities are probably the best we have stayed in. Our son loved them because of the land around the gites and pool to play football, cricket, ping pong etc, all provided by the owners. Lastly, Janine and Anthony were warm, welcoming hosts who were always there to answer any questions with a smile and sometimes a beer! Anthony also took my husband to play golf one morning (my husband was having withdrawal symptoms!). This is the first review I have ever written as I highly recommend these gites.
So nice of you, thank you. We loved meeting you all and we are so glad you chose us for your holiday.
Perfect accommodation in peaceful location.
Laugerie Basse is a beautiful well maintained property. We have stayed here twice and will certainly be going again. Everything you need is in the gites, we have never stayed in such a well equipped accommodation. and there is a separate shared laundry room. The pool is fantastic it is heated and it has a barbecue area just at the side. The grounds and orchard area are very well maintained and if the fruit is ripe you can pick your own. We hired a car from the airport and the drive to the accommodation is beautiful and takes less than an hour following the very easy directions which the owner can send to you. We stayed for two weeks and visited many amazing places with a 30 minute radius as well as having lazy days around the pool. Shopping is easy just a 5 minute drive from the accommodation is a large supermarket. And a great market on a Sunday.
The owners Janine & Anthony are really friendly and are very knowledgeable about the local area, whilst there we visited Sarlat, Belves, Domme, Chateau de MIlandes, Cabanes Du breuil , Chateau de Commarque, Jardin de Marquessac, La Roque Gaegac, Maison Forte de Raignac, Parc la Bournat, Roque saint Christophe and many other amazing and beautiful places. We will definitely be re booking this accomadation and love the Dordogne. I recommend this property to all my friends and family.
