Beautiful Gite in a perfect location!
We had a truly wonderful holiday in Michele and Barrie's lovely Gite. The accommodation was comfortable, clean and well equipped. The outside space was perfect for dining, relaxing or having fun in the pool. Michele and Barrie were superb hosts, they made us feel very welcome and were on hand if we needed them. We loved it all and hope to return!
A little gem in Lot
This is an absolute gem of a place. Well appointed and beautifully fitted out it offers tranquillité and the perfect base to either relax in comfort or explore Lot and its environs. Located at the edge of the village, bars and boulangerie are within easy walking distance, and farm fresh eggs are readily procurable from the neighbouring farmer.
Barrie and Michelle are charming and considerate hosts, very approachable and helpful, while remaining thoughtfully discreet. This gite is a real find, and I wholly recommend it.
Well situated, quiet and beautiful pool area
The only thing which marred our stay at Petit Pattaris was the weather which prevented us from fully enjoying the superb outside space. The gite is comfortable and well equipped but its main feature is the excellent private pool and outside space. If you want a place to relax in quiet surroundings then this is the place. And in Barrie and Michele you will find very pleasant hosts who are there when you want something but are otherwise inconspicuous. The location is great being able to walk into the village or to the lake for the morning croissant run or restaurants. We can't think of anything not to like here.
Quiet surroundings close to typical Lot village
This converted barn was perfect for us as a couple and would also suit a family of 4. Renovated to a high standard with 2 en suite shower rooms.
Village has a shop, bar / restaurant (open for lunch) and a Boulangerie
The 10 meter pool for the gite is for guests use only, and
was a delight. Not totally private but secluded. There are Two BBQ areas ,1 by the pool and one on the terrace.
TV sky and video available available in the well equipped kitchen / lounge /diner area.
Close by a lake with a good value outdoor restaurant which can be seen from the garden.
Our hosts Michelle and Barrie were superb and invisible making our 1week stay a pleasure.
This property is situated very conveniently to many lovely towns and villages for days out. Ask Barrie about the Thursday evening party at an adjacent village during August it is well worth a visit.
We hope to return.
