Relaxing break in great location
We had a lovely stay at Le Colombier. The house is very comfortable and in a great location within 5 mins walk of the village and easy driving distance to lots of interesting places in the Dordogne and Lot areas.
The garden and pool area is fantastic and the pool was a good temperature.
We would definitely recommend staying at Le Colombier and hope to return in the future.
A gem in the Dordogne
We loved the property and extensive grounds - very spacious, peaceful and private with a fantastic pool . We particularly liked the wrap around shaded veranda which was spot on for outdoor dining, and sitting out in the evening. The location and village amenities were great too inc a variety of shops and canoe hire nearby. Fantastic bar / bistro in the village centre and traditional family run restaurant 15 mins walk. Locals were very friendly and patient as we attempted to speak our limited French! I would absolutely recommend this property for a fantastic family holiday.
Wonderful place to stay
We loved everything about Le Colombier: it's a very spacious, comfortable, well-equipped house, with a great heated pool, a big veranda and lovely large secluded gardens. The location is very quiet, within easy walking distance of the village, and at the heart of the best of the Dordogne and neighbouring Lot regions. We appreciated the owners' willingness to answer all our questions - even before we booked! Over the years, we've rented numerous gites in France and certainly rate Le Colombier among the best.
Wonderful holiday in the Dordogne in a lovely property
We were delighted to revisit the Dordogne area again and had a wonderful holiday. The property was beautifully maintained, both inside and out, with a lovely spacious garden and excellent heated pool. The facilities inside provided everything we needed and was to a high standard. We had good contact with the owner who answered any queries we had immediately and concisely. The property is set in an ideal position in which to visit the surrounding areas and there was plenty for us to see. We would definitely recommend this property and would like to return again in the future.
Great spacious property with excellent facilities. Would definitely recommend...
We are just back from a week's stay at Le Colombier. Although it was the first week in May, the weather was good and we saw temperatures of 18 to 21 deg C. We were able to eat outside which was an added bonus.
The property was totally as described, very spacious and with all the facilities we could need including a great pool.
The village center is just walking distance and has a few shops and bakery for morning croissants.. The main towns of Sarlat (in one direction) and Souillac (in the other direction) are within easy reach by car and we found a number of tourist attractions in the local vicinity. There are lots of eating choices in Sarlat and set course menus at very reasonable prices.
The best supermarket is the Leclerc in the Sarlat direction which is just on the outskirts of the town. You cannot miss it and you can get your weekly shop in here.
Having access to the owners bicycles was a nice touch as well as I really didn't want to take ours on the back of the car all the way down France.
All in all, a great holiday and we would return and recommend this property to others.
Perfect Villa for Families
We stayed at Le Colombier as 2 families, consisting of 5 adults and 3 children for a period of 2 weeks. We felt that the property had enough room for us to stay without feeling as if we were living on top of each other. Very comfortable. The outdoor space was amazing, much larger than the pictures indicate. We ate "al fresco" for the whole holiday. Loved the swimming pool, the kids practically lived in it. The position couldn't have been better, it was so easy to drive to fantastic places such as Sarlat (amazing Saturday Market), Beynac, Rocamadour, Martel (fantastic steam train) and lots more. Saint Julien De Lampon was a pretty small village but had all of the local amenities required and within easy walking distance from the property. Would highly recommend.
