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.

Cosy gite in lovely surroundings

  • 5 of 5

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. Would highly recommend this gite and the area for families and couples alike.

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

Excellente vacances au calme!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé pour la deuxième fois une semaine à la Borie (la première fois c'était en 2013). C'était une vraie réussite! Françoise et Charles, les propriétaires, sont extrêmement accueillants et sympathiques, tout en restant discrets. C'est un plaisir de les croiser le long de la piscine, au coin du potager ou dans le jardin et de discuter un peu!

La Borie en elle-même est un petit logement très cosy et bien équipé! Nous sommes un couple avec un bébé. Nous avions une chambre pour nous avec un excellent matelas et largement la place pour disposer le lit bébé sur le palier.

Petit jardin privatisé pour des petits barbecues en amoureux. Nous avons également savouré pour la deuxième fois la table d'hôtes proposée par Françoise et on s'est régalé.

Piscine nickel! Plein de choses à voir dans le coin, sans devoir rouler des heures en voiture! On y retournera c'est sûr!

Charles et Françoise, encore 1000 mercis!

The beautiful village of St Genies is 3km. With its castle and its slate roofs, Saint Genies is one of the finest medieval villages in the region.

Saint Genies has its own truffle market every Sunday morning. The "caveurs" present their local certified quality harvest! Markets also truffle-la-Caneda Sarlat on Saturday morning and other beautiful villages in the region during the week. Winter and being the opportunity to discover a rich cuisine of many in Perigord.
