A perfect holiday property in a lovely quiet location
The house is situated in a tiny hamlet in this beautiful part of France. Lovely quiet lanes for cycling and easy access to Gourdon, a traditional and pretty French town with good restaurants and shops. The house is very well equipped and we loved the pool, which was warm, and the secure garden and terraces. There are two good-sized bathrooms and comfortable beds. There is only one toilet which might be a problem for a larger family or group.
The owners live next door which is comforting in case of any issues but the layout of the properties means you feel completely private.
Excellent family week
This private and very self-contained property was everything and more than we expected. Our two children (6 and 3) had the freedom and facilities to play without constant adult supervision. The pool is gated and has plenty of shade. Gaelle is relaxed and helpful, offering advice about the locality whenever it was needed. A wonderful week. We would definitely consider going back.
A warm welcome, relaxation and plenty of activity in a wonderful location
Gaelle accommodated our changed arrival time, booked a lovely place for us to eat after arriving and we settled very quickly into the spacious barn style extended cottage. The house and rooms were perfect for us with family members coming and going through a fortnight stay. 7 adults at one point, there was plenty of space and the one WC and two separate bathrooms with showers met our needs.
The grounds and garden are beautiful with a choice of seating and dining areas which let us find shade when needed or evening sun if that was what we preferred. The pool is a good size and depth for swimming, games or just cooling off! The thoughtful provision of a second, large, fridge and freezer was excellent and really came into play when the house was full.
We spoke with Gaelle and Paul a couple of times through the week and really appreciated them being nearby but absolutely leaving us to our privacy.
Gourdon is the main town nearby with excellent boulangerie and patisserie as well the big chain supermarkets - so no shortage of food and drink options with several good bistro restaurants in town too. The Tourist Information in Gourdon had plenty of guidance and the staff were very helpful there too. It paid to try out our French and were rewarded with careful explanations of where and what there is to do. Apart from the food and wine, we sorted out canoes, sussed out Rocamadour and booked online for Padirac and Pech Merle caves as well as just turning up at Cougnac nearby. The first, a magnificent limestone cavern system and underground river, the rest featuring limestone formations and very, very special prehistoric cave art. Original and in front of your own eyes, 30,000yr old cave art. WOW.
The combination of days out, returning home to the lovely Gite Trapani and pool or just chilling (albeit 37deg) on alternate days was truly restful and reinvigorating in a glorious setting. This was 2018 super hot summer and when it was too much, the house and pool and the shade of the trees were just right. A really great place, a wonderful location in the Lot and near enough Dordogne and Cahors for plenty of activity. The whole family loved it.
The cottage is very comfortable, spacious, and peaceful. The owner was very helpful in assisting us with restaurants and driving directions. Of the five rentals we used in France, Gaelle was the BEST!
Une tres belle propriété
Un endroit où l on se sent aussitôt comme chez nous. Le cadre, la déco, le calme tout est là pour passer un moment des plus agréables. En plus les propriétaires sont à l écoute, de bons conseils et tres attentionnés. Que du bonheur.....
Juste ce qu’il vous faut pour des vacances réussies
Un emplacement à proximité des grands sites touristiques mais aussi de Gourdon qui propose tous les commerces et différents types de restaurants,
Une localisation de la maison juste isolée pour profiter en toute quiétude du jardin, riche de différents coins organisés autour de la piscine,
Une maison parfaitement équipée, avec ses 3 chambres indépendantes, une cuisine aussi complète dans ses équipements que dans le petit matériel,
Des hôtes d’une disponibilité et gentillesse extraordinaires. Nous avons du faire face à un problème avec notre véhicule la veille de notre départ et spontanément Gaelle s’est proposée de nous emmener en voiture sur Gourdon le lendemain. Ils sont à l’image d’une région où les personnes ont le sourire, sont accueillants et ont plaisir à s’assurer que vous vivrez une superbe expérience.
Sincèrement, je recommande cette maison pour des familles comme pour des amis qui cherchent un lieu tranquille :)
