Fantastic holiday at Brantome Gite
Myself, my husband, son and daughter aged 11 and 14 stayed here for 2 weeks in August. Julia and Richard are very welcoming and showed us round the gite, pool area and beautiful gardens. Everything about the gite was amazing, we couldn't fault it. It was large, well equipped, the beds were very comfy and the garden was perfect. Julia and Richard are lovely and very good company, my daughter helped Julia feed her donkeys, which was the hilight of her holiday. We regularly walked into Brantome in the day and evening, via the Chemins which were very scenic. There are nice restaurants in Brantome catering for everyone and we thoroughly enjoyed watching the canoeists on the river. We went canoeing to Bordeilles, visited the Police Horses and there are lots of chateaus to visit. Sarlat and Domme are well worth a visit too. We would recommend Brantome Gite for a lovely place to spend your holidays.
Wonderful, peaceful holiday in a fantastic location!
I am not one for writing reviews, but I had to make an exception for the Brantome Gite. We have just returned with our 8 and 11 year old daughters from a fantastic two weeks in Brantome.
The gite was immaculate when we arrived and deceptively spacious too. We met Julia and Richard upon our arrival who showed us around the property and thereafter, were the perfect hosts. We always felt they were there when we needed them but equally they let us go about our holiday without any distraction.
We are regulars to the region so had a list of places we planned to visit in advance. However, we received some welcome tips from Richard about some of the places we were visiting, such as Sarlat and St Emilion.
My daughters were particular pleased when they saw the size of the pool and the inflatables that were awaiting their arrival!! As other reviews confirm, Richard keeps the pool to a very high standard and that is to his credit.
The gite itself is very welcoming and cosy. It was lovely and cool which was very welcome (for me anyway!) as we had some very warm weather in the middle of our stay! There is a nice, peaceful eating area just outside of the front door where we spent most of our evenings playing cards and board games with our children. It was a lovely peaceful holiday and we were devastated to leave!!
We can't recommend the Brantome Gite highly enough as both a property and destination. Thank you Julia and Richard!!
A good gite for a fine holiday
A clean and well equipped gite, with an excellent swimming pool.

Excellent accommodation and hosts who were extremely helpful and knowledgeable during our 2week stay. We must say the swimming pool was excellent and always in first class order thanks to Richard. An excellent place to stay especially if you like animals.
Brantome the gate of the Perigord Limosin Natural Regional Park, one of the most beautiful sites in France. Brantome, known as the Venice of the Perigord is an island encircled by a loop of the River Dronne linked to the ouside world by five bridges. Its gabled bell tower, rising from the rock is held to be the oldest and one of the finest in France. The original Benedictine abbey was founded in 769 by Charlemagne. In the botanical gardens on the banks of the Dronne are the monks' exquisite little stone-carved rest-houses. There's always plenty going on in Brantome, from its annual vintage car rally and water jousting tournaments to the winter truffle market and farmers' markets on Fridays. Numerous Chateaux, Monolithic, Romanesque and lighted Roman churches are plentiful within the area along with caves, gardens and natural sites. Laying along a ley-line, Brantome is truly a romantic restful enchanting village where, perhaps when you ask - all your dreams will come true!
