About Mrs Lynne Smith

We purchased this property as a wreck in 2005 and have renovated it in keeping with local traditions, but with a modern touch. Having left the UK and moved to France permanently in 2007, we divide our time between property management, teaching French and generally enjoying this lovely area. We hope you do too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at Le Grezier for the last two weeks in June and enjoyed fantastic weather. The property is very spacious, comfortable and very well equipped both inside and out. The pool is beautifully kept and a good size for our party of 7 plus a 1 year old. We all thoroughly enjoyed using it most days.

It is situated in a very convenient location to explore the area. There are so many beautiful places to visit, we particularly enjoyed canoeing on the river and visiting local chateaux. The local restaurants that we sampled were all exceptional.

Lynne and Darryl were great hosts, very welcoming and always on hand for advice, information or translation, but without being intrusive. We all enjoyed a fabulous holiday at Le Grezier and certainly plan to return.

An excellent getaway location, totally relaxing

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic new conversion done to a very high standard, but which maintains the charm of the original building. We had a party of seven adults (four grown ups and three twenty somethings) and all were accommodated very easily. The rooms were simple but well thought out and more than enough for our needs. Daryl & Lynne were excellent as owners, living next door they were there when needed.

The property itself is located in a rural setting and was an ideal get away location in which it was easy to relax and forget everyday life (wine helped!) to recharge the batteries.

I would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone for a proper break from the world.

You will need a car to get to the nearby shops/town or any attractions.

PS they do have very good wi-fi, ask the youngsters!

Beautiful house in superb location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Le Grezier in August 2014 and can highly recommend it! Lynne and Darryl were lovely welcoming hosts, very helpful, knowledgeable about the area, and nothing was too much trouble. The location is wonderful, up on the hill with lovely views over the nearby hills and forests. A pleasant bike ride to the bakery in the morning, and you can burn some calories on the way back up!

The large and beautiful garden was much enjoyed by adults and children alike, and the pool very well maintained.

Nearby to Carlux is great for its excellent farm shop and restaurant, bakery, butchers (superb Carluxienne Sausages!) and handy general store; and Salignac for supermarkets and markets.

We had great fun on the cycle routes which are fantastic for kids to ride on, and easy to find a nice picnic spot by the river (or you can stop for duck and chips with Chez Francis!).

Thanks again for lending us the bike Darryl.

So, whether you lounge by the pool, relax in the garden, potter round the shops, or want to be more active and head out to the many attractions of the area, cycling/kayaking etc this is a great choice of somewhere to stay for children and adults alike.

We like to move around and try different places, but we may well be back if we come back to the area.

Stunning farmhouse in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Le Grezier, the farmhouse is beautiful and well equipped. The grounds are stunning and wonderfully maintained with the lovely pool a huge bonus. The living accommodation is really well laid out and was perfect for a multi generational family stay.

The area is spectacular with stunning scenery, lots to do and very calm although the farmhouse was so lovely it was hard to leave some days.

Lynne and Darryl were fabulous hosts and we definitely hope to stay again. A thoroughly recommended property!

Beautiful holiday home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly great holiday. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and at home. The house is spacious and very comfortable and the pool and gardens delightful. It was very warm at times so the pool was blissful especially after a day wandering around the hillside villages. A must is a day canoeing on the river. The scenery at every turn is spectacular. We will definitely return one day to this little bit of heaven. Lesley, Brian, sue, carol.

Le Grezier

  • 5 of 5

We would recommend Le Grezier unreservedly. The property was the best we have stayed in and we have been to France many times: it was exactly as described. The house was very well equipped, tastefully furnished and decorated - with comfortable beds and excellent showers. There were 3 generations of our family and everyone loved it. The children, 2 & 4, really enjoyed the pool and grounds which gave them plenty of scope to play in safety while the adults liked relaxing in the lovely gardens after a swim.

We were warmly greeted by Lynn & Darell, the owners, who were delightful - helpful, knowledgeable and friendly while giving us our own space. We agreed with the comments of previous visitors who said that a week was not long enough to do justice to all that the area has to offer. There were attractions that pleased everyone and we had no difficulty in finding places to eat.

As we left our 4 year old asserted that she wanted to come back next year - an opinion we all shared!

Holiday

  • 4 of 5

The gite was well equiped and surprisingly spacious and airey. It is central to the areas that we were keen to visit, however a car is compulsory if staying here, the nearest town is around a 15 minute drive away, other than that you are literally in the sticks! The owners were helpful and welcoming, although we would have enjoyed use of the pool at some point during our stay. Overall, a pleasant holiday and definately worth a visit.

Owner's Response: We are glad that our gite lived up to expectations, as we aim to provide a very high standard of accommodation. As our advertising states, we are in a beautiful rural location, surrounded by small villages and equidistant between the mediaeval town of Sarlat and Souillac. All our guests certainly need to have use of a car to visit the many places of interest in the area. The village of Carlux (5 mins) has a bakery, butchers and small general store. We are a little bemused by the reference to the pool, as it was available for use throughout this young couple's stay. We always show guests the gite on arrival and there is a guest information book on the coffee table in the gite which has a page dedicated to the swimming pool. We will certainly make sure there are no misunderstandings about this in future.
