Wonderful Hosts, Beautiful and Peaceful Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife, myself, and my 6 year old son stayed in the gite La Borie for a week in the summer of 2014. The hosts, Francoise and Charles, were truly 'chaleureuse'. It was clear that Francoise really loves children; she welcomed our son like he was her own grandson coming to visit and was always happy to engage him in fun conversations. We enjoyed the pool when the weather permitted and went on several walks in the surrounding countryside when we weren't exploring various ruins or caves in the area. I would highly recommend arranging for a prepared meal. The food and wine were great and the conversation was better. Many of the ingredients came from their beautiful garden. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen was well-stocked for making meals. I would also recommend going to the Wednesday market in St. Genies, which is more like a open-air dinner for the whole community. It was pretty fun sitting down with a big plate of duck and frites elbow to elbow with the locals.

The gite is very well equipped, clean and cosy. There is everything you need for a comfortable relaxing holiday. The grounds and pool are very quiet and peaceful and the patio area behind the gite is very well equipped with fantastic views. The local are is beautiful - typical Dordogne medieval villages and gorgeous scenery. Well placed to visit many places. Francoise and Charles are very friendly hosts and very helpful.

Lovely stay in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in La Salamandre gite last summer, with my parents and our little boy 5yrs and our 12 week old baby,it was absolutely beautiful, the owners Charles and Francoise were so welcoming and helpful, our little boy especially loved the open space to run around and play games. The pool area is lovely too nice and private and very clean. The gite its self was perfect it had everything we needed and was really well kept and immaculately clean! The gite is situated in a gorgeous hamlet close to various stunning towns and villages with lots to do! I would certainly recommend this to any family thinking of holidaying in France! We came back feeling totally relaxed and would definitely go back again! Family Heslop, North Yorkshire, England

Sehr gemütliches Ferienhaus in wunderschöner, total ruhiger Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns in dem kleinen Ferienhaus sehr wohl gefühlt. Es liegt am Südende des Gebäudekomplexes, so dass man von morgens bis abends Sonne hat. Von dem größeren Ferienhaus nebenan hört man nichts, und die Vermieter, die am anderen Ende wohnen, sind ausgesprochen freundlich und zuvorkommend. So wurden wir z. B. mit frischen Feigen, Salat, Tomaten und Kräutern aus dem eigenen Garten versorgt.

Die Ausstattung des Hauses ist komfortabel und sehr gemütlich. Man sieht die liebevolle Hand der Vermieterin in vielen Kleinigkeiten. Die große, gut ausgestattete Küche mit Esstisch ist durch eine Theke vom Wohnraum getrennt, der auch sehr ansprechend möbliert ist. Mit TV, Blue-Ray-Player und Wifi muss man trotz der relativen Abgeschiedenheit auf moderne Kommunikation nicht verzichten. Der Holzofen im Wohnzimmer sorgt an kühlen Abenden für wohlige Wärme, die durchs ganze Haus zieht.

Im Obergeschoss befinden sich das kleine, geschmackvoll gestaltete Schlafzimmer und das Duschbad mit WC mit vielen Ablagemöglichkeiten. Davor auf dem Treppenabsatz ist in einer Nische Platz für die Kleidung, so dass eine Art Ankleide entstanden ist.

Auf der Süd- bzw. Westseite befindet sich ein durch Lorbeerhecken begrenztes Rasenstück mit Kiesterrasse, die mit Sitz- und Liegemöbeln, Sonnenschirm und Grill ausgestattet ist. Der Pool und eine Boule-Bahn stehen für beide Ferienhäuser zur Verfügung.

Insgesamt ist es eine absolut empfehlenswerte Adresse, um zu zweit einen erholsamen Urlaub zu verbringen. Auch sind die schönsten Sehenswürdigkeiten des Périgord noir mit dem Auto sehr gut zu erreichen!

Urlaub wie Gott in Frankreich

  • 5 of 5

Diese Ferienwohnung kann man ohne Einschränkungen empfehlen. Ideal für 2 Personen. Großer Wohnraum mit Küche, Sat-TV und WLAN im Erdgeschoss und Schlafzimmer und Bad im 1.OG. Schöner und komplett abgetrennter Außenbereich mit Grill, sehr gepflegter und großer Pool.

Liegt wunderbar ruhig in einem ganz kleinen Weiler abseits der größeren Straßen. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in der Umgebung mit 15min Fahrzeit schnell erreichbar. Die beiden Vermieter sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit und geizen nicht mit tollen Tipps zu Restaurants und Sehenswürdigkeiten. 3 Wochen Entspannung pur. Wir kommen bestimmt wieder!
