Fantastic pool. Look out for deer, coypu and buzzards. If you go to Issigeac Sunday – be there for 8.00!

David and Patricia. August 2017

Brilliant gite with everything anyone could want in terms of supplies. The views and pool are simply stunning and the garden is a wonderful shady area on hot days. Recommend Issigeac market (good advice about an 8 a.m. start), a barge trip on the Dore at Bergerac and canoeing at Limeuil. Thanks for a fabulous stay and some outstanding weather (37⁰)!

Somerville Family. August 2017

As frequent visitors to the Dordogne, this has been one of the best gites we have stayed in. The pool was excellent, the surrounding views stunning and the house had everything we needed. We’ve had a wonderful two week stay in the Dordogne with beautiful weather. Thank you.
It was always a surprise when we opened the shutters – which wildlife were we cohabiting with next!

McHallum Family. July 2017

Thank you for a fantastic week in a superb location. It was an extra treat to see Le Tour go through, but we’d have enjoyed it just for the châteaux, food, wine and wildlife

Crabtree Family. July 2017

Fabulous stay – we’ll be back! Thank you!

Jacobs Family. July 2017

A return visit and better than last time. The swimming pool is superb. The gite so well equipped and clean. Still the best gite and we will be back next year.

Catherine and George. June 2017

As repeat visitors, again we were not disappointed. Wonderful gite, clean and well-equipped in a superb location – great time had by all. Merci beaucoup!

A Little Slice of Heaven 
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
The pictures don’t do justice to the property. The gite is extremely well equipped, comfortable and spacious and my disabled 11 year old son had no access problems on the ground floor of the property. The shady grounds are lovely, the pool is wonderful and the views are stunning. So peaceful and relaxing. The wifi also worked perfectly. Temperatures ranged from 26c to 37c but the aircon and fans kept the house cool at night. We cannot recommend the property highly enough.
M.S. August 2016

Blissfully peaceful with wonderful pool
★ ★ ★ ★
Property has very low doors and ceilings beams upstairs which I thought could be a problem for 6’4″ male, but he did not hit is head once.
The peace and quiet was just to die for. What we both really needed. No noise at all at night and hardly any during the day.
The area gave plenty of options to go out and visit different markets almost every day of the week. Great villages to explore. We went to a market every day except Monday, information on these other markets would have been a useful addition to the information pack.
Another useful addition would have been instructions on how to use the television. I think it took us most of the week to work out how to do this. We felt that the property could have been left in a cleaner state and my husband changed bulbs that were not working.
I would recommend this property to a friend and almost booked to return next year but decided to go to a different area.
Patricia, August 2016
(Note from owner – we are very grateful for your feedback and are sorry that you felt the property could have been cleaner on your arrival.  This is the first time we have received such feedback and would like to assure you that this is being acted upon.)

“We had an amazing week at Les Bartelles.  Everything from the very sweet welcome package to the seclusion and privacy of the cottage not to mention the amazing pool and tranquillity.  I am the swimmer so to have a pool virtually to myself was incredible.  We loved going out each day to a different market…….
It was so easy to drive too from Dieppe – we were in St Emilion by 8.30 pm having left the ferry at 2! – we were thinking of even going down in the autumn for a long weekend.
Thank you for sharing your lovely cottage with us.”
The Johnson’s, July 2016

SPLENDID GITE
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The photos on the website didn’t do it justice. We couldn’t believe what a lovely place it was. The standard of accommodation was very high and all perfectly restored to an excellent standard. There was nothing you could have needed. The swimming pool was outstanding and very good for serious swimmers as well as just for relaxation. The view was stunning. The area is very nice but its tempting to stay in the Gite because its so pleasant. Air Conditioning was a bonus and much appreciated. It was so good we have booked again for next year.
Catherine B, June 2016

“Would like to thank the owners and management of Les Bartelles, I have stayed in a number of holiday let properties and always find that it is the attention to detail that makes the difference, and this gite had all those touches to make the stay excellent. The directions from the airport were clear to the letter, the suggestions for local places were fair (no exaggeration which I appreciate), the place is spotless but without losing the ability to be functional.

We knew that any outdoor pool would be chilly in early May but it was so clean and the sun was out so had to give it a go!

A lovely spot with a great view, character and the old (love a wood burner) and mod (dishwasher is absolutely ideal) cons that you could ask for, a very easy place to stay for a weekend and just wish we could have stayed a bit longer!”
Mr Parry, May 2016

“I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say what a wonderful time we had at Les Bartelles, last week. Getting to the Gite was very easy as the instructions you provided were spot-on. Upon arrival we were greeted with a very cute basket of ‘essentials’ including a delicious local wine. The Gite itself is beautiful in the most serene, picturesque countryside and thus exactly what we were hoping for. The pool certainly did not disappoint and is one of many excellent features of the site. The amenities are perfect, and the Gite is decorated in a wonderfully rustic, French way! The outdoor eating area is fantastic with great views over the rolling French countryside, and we spent many a meal time sat out there enjoying locally bought food, and even more locally purchased wine!
Overall, the location is perfect, the Gite is wonderful and we will certainly be returning next year, many thanks.”
Stephen D, September 2015

“We have had a wonderful stay at ‘Les Bartelles’. The gite is charming with everything you need, especially the great pool area. Also it is in a picturesque setting, we will be back
Steve & Sophie, September 2015

“Thank you very much for a lovely holiday in a comfortable house in beautiful surroundings”
James & Jenny R. Johannesburg, Tom & Ann R, UK. September 2015

“We have enjoyed a peaceful two weeks at ‘Les Bartelles’ and particularly welcomed the wonderful swimming pool as the temperatures increased. Merci pour tous. A bientot.”
