The host Patrice is great!
The view, the luxury, every day is a party thanks to the sweet people behind these gites and their dedication to take care of everything to the letter, it was really a piece of paradise in France 🇫🇷

Ruben. January 2024

Everything was perfect. Very friendly and listening hosts. A heavenly place for those who want to relax. Decorated with a lot of taste, everything is carefully thought out. To redo without hesitation and even see try the lodges for couples.

Yasmina. October 2023

Home from home.
Liked· Everything was perfect. Location fantastic, short drive to the nearest town. Totally peaceful overlooking fields and woods – getting to watch the deer every morning & evening was lovely.
The house was so homely and has everything you need. The hot tub, pool and sauna were an amazing bonus. The owners were great and very friendly and accommodating. We can’t wait to return!

Emma. October 2023

As good as it gets.
Truly magnificent, elegant gite. All on the ground floor with huge covered terrace, pool and parking close by. Very comfortable bed and furnishings, excellent walk-in shower. Very well equipped kitchen with all the gadgets. Air conditioned throughout, perfect for a September heatwave. And the owner makes his own wine….

Our little slice of heaven.

"Flanders". August 2023 August 2023

Fantastic gite in a wonderful location!.
This was the best gite we have ever stayed at in , after many years of holidaying in France. From the moment the friendly but not intrusive host Patrice met us, providing complimentary drinks and fully explaining all the facilities, the holiday just got better and better. A heated pool with easy access steps, fantastic views, jacuzzi under a beautifully covered patio area, and an outside dining area which we used every day. The air conditioning throughout was greatly appreciated during gloriously hot weather. The gite was private , provided on site parking and is situated just a few minutes from the charming town of Eymet. We cannot wait to return again. I was really unsure whether to leave this review, just in case this gite gets so popular that we cannot get a return booking! Thank you Patrice.

Neil. July 2023

Relaxing stay. The calm, the view: place to relax.
Facilities: nothing is missing.
A real plus: e-bikes to enjoy the surroundings without moving the car.
Patrice, our host, discreet, welcoming and available.

Beatrice. July 2023

Splendid view. The calm, the facilities and the incredible view better in real than in the photos.
The pool, spa and sauna are great comfort outside and are to the level of luxury inside the house.
The welcome from the owner was very warm and his little attention on arrival very appreciated.

Relaxing weekend
Wonderful place to relax in peace after a stressful week at work. Everything is perfect, from the beautifully decorated cottage to the particularly attentive hosts.

Cedric F. February 2023

Magnificent view
Perfect location, house and interior, a quiet and chic place, thank you for this very pleasant weekend

Jean-Pierre D. December 2022

Patrice has thought of everything, from luxury comfort like a sauna, hot tub and swimming pool, to a spacious 2-bedroom property that is very clean and has everything you need in the kitchen and bathroom, as well as a desk for writing/using a computer if needed. The location is set upon a hill above the small town of Eymet, quiet and remote but not too far from social activities if desired.

Stella. September 2022
