Gite Salagre is situated in vineyards in the wine growing around surrounding Bergerac. The hosts Serge and Beatrice are exceptional in their customer service from initial arrival to departure. Fresh produce from the garden and a delicious home made tart set the tone for a wonderful stay. The gite is set in the Dordogne and served by a local airport. There are numerous places of both historical interest and natural beauty both on the doorstep and within easy driving distance.
After a days sightseeing it was great to come back to the swimming pool which was there for our exclusive use. All the pictures accurately reflected what we found.

A Delightful Place
If I were to summarise the house and owners in just one word it would be "generous".
The owners are warm, friendly, helpful and generous with their time and advice. They live on-site in the next door property but are not at all intrusive. We managed to communicate with a mix of French and English, plus the usual sign language and gestures! The welcome gift of a home made plum tart plus produce from the garden during the week was very kind and delicious.
The house is great, very well equipped and fitted out to a high standard. It's set in lovely gardens with a petanque pitch, lawn badminton and table tennis to keep you active plus both a gas and charcoal BBQ for guest use.
The garden is beautifully maintained and very pretty.
On two sides of the house there are large, covered patios. The side one has a dinning table and chairs for 8 people while there is a sofa and chairs for 4 where it joins the back patio. There is also a bistro table and chairs on the lawn.
The pool is large with plenty of sun loungers, umbrellas and another sofa / chair set. Serge keeps the pool very clean.
The area is quiet and pretty with plenty to do. We enjoyed the local villages and markets and really appreciated the 1 week / 2 week schedule of things to do up on the wall which just made it all so easy.
A delightful place with lots to offer visitors and with the bonus of great owners.
Six of us - parents, grandparents and children - had the great pleasure to spend a week at this fantastic property, only 10 mins from Bergerac airport, yet set in a quiet location among the vineyards.
Serge and Beatrice welcomed us with a tour of the house and grounds and kindly gifted us a bottle of red wine and a lovely apple tart. Communication wasn't always easy but we had fun using a mixture of hand signals and mobile phone technology to overcome the language barrier.
The pool, landscaped gardens and the sunsets are all spectacular, and we appreciated that the hosts (and a robot lawn mower!) put in a lot of discreet work to keep everything in perfect condition.
It was was very hot during our stay, which made it difficult to sleep, but there are plenty of outdoor seating options, so it was always possible to find somewhere shady to relax or have a snooze through the day.
The kitchen is very well equipped, which allowed us to make full use of the fresh produce available in local markets, along with potatoes and tomatoes kindly donated by the owners from their own garden!
The week passed too quickly but we enjoyed days out to St Emilion, Monbazillac (night market), Beaumont du Perigord (medieval tour by torchlight) and Issigeac.
We'll definitely be returning to the area and wouldn't hesitate to book Gite de la Salagre again.
Best wishes Serge et Beatrice
An absolute gem
We stayed for two weeks and had the most fabulous time. The house is lovely and has everything you need for a holiday. The kitchen is well stocked and many extras were included such as coffee and tea to get you started.
The swimming pool is just perfect with sun beds and umbrellas. The gardens are also beautiful and so very well looked after. We had daily games of table tennis, badminton and pétanque.
Serge and Beatrice were the perfect hosts - making sure the swimming pool was perfect for us every morning. The gifts of tarts, jam and wine were so thoughtful and very delicious. We had great fun conversing with Serge and Beatrice and managed quite well even though my French is almost non existent.
This was a perfect holiday for us and hope to return. Thank you.

Fabulous property in a beautiful setting.
This is a beautiful house in a stunning location. The garden and pool area are beautiful. The town of Bergerac is a 15 minute drive away and is a beautiful town, Serge and Beatrice are so nice and extremely helpful and available if any thing is needed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and hope to return.
Incredible stay with incredible owners
Where to start.......
The whole stay with Serge & Beatrice was incredible!!! all the way from booking to leaving the property on the last day, both Serge & Beatrice couldn't do anymore for you. From welcoming us on the first day with open arms with a tart, a bowel full of cherries and a fantastic bottle of wine, this was bliss.
The house is located at the edge of a local vine yard (serge arranged a trip for us which was fantastic to see), and is in such a quiet beautiful part of the Dordogne. I have travelled to the area many times before but Gite de la Salagre blew me away with how quiet and beautiful it was.
The house itself is the only property located on the lane, so as you can imagine, unspoilt Beaty all around. The property was absolutely fantastic, Serge explained everything out as best he could with my French being a little rusty but we managed to communicate extremely well. even though Serge & Beatire live next door, they were on hand when required and never intruded on you at all. the property is extremely well presented, kept in a beautiful clean manner and has left me with a very good impression
The property is great for families with small children. with there being a huge garden, the pool is segregated by hedges and bushes so cannot be seen from the grass or bbq area and gives you the security that no wondering children will find the pool on their own.
Three great sized double bedrooms upstairs with lounge kitchen and dining area down stairs. there is also a washing machine, that you can get the essentials washed if need be.
The property is located about 15 minutes from Bergerac airport and centre and is about 10 minutes to the nearest supermarket (E'Leclerc).
Overall, we enjoyed our stay that much with Serge & Beatrice that we are looking to book again for in a few years time!
Merci beaucoup Serge & Beatrice pour des vacances et des souvenirs aussi incroyables
