Really great stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a really great stay. Our young boys loved the pool at the end of a hot day and the big grounds. The owners were lovely and on hand if required but did not intrude. Françoise and Charles cooked us a meal one night which was fabulous and they were great company. The location is in a small hamlet and convient for most attractions. We ate out at lunch but evening meals were back at the house with a very well equipped kitchen, all facilities were super. Had a very memorable stay. Thank you Todd & Sam

A Delightful Gite in the Dordonge

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at La Salamandre. The location was fantastic, close to so many beautiful villages and towns eg. St Genies, Montignac, Salignac, Sarlat where you can find a large variety of activities all within 10 -20 min drive away - chateau's, caves, kayaks, restaurants, markets, shops etc. A very special thank you to Francoise and Charles for your amazing hospitality and kindness we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday! The Gite was everything we had hoped for, immaculately presented and had all the facilities we needed. The Gite is set in beautifully presented extensive grounds which are very private and provide a peaceful and tranquil setting with stunning views!

The pool and surrounding area is a good size and well maintained. Our little boy (5yrs) particularly enjoyed helping Francoise water the vegetable patch and playing boules, football and frisbe!

A great holiday had by all hope to return again one day!

Schitterende locatie met uitstekende gastvrouw

  • 4 of 5

Ons verblijf (2 kinderen, 2 volwassenen) werd opgeluisterd doorde immer vrolijke Charles en de altijd gedienstige Francoise. Onze trips met de elektrische fietsen waren onvergetelijk (gehuurd voor enkele dagen op aanraden van de eigenaars). Voor wie van natuur en cultuur (Lascaut!) is deze locatie echt een aanrader!!
