A lovely house in a great location
"We rented out this house for a family of 6 and had plenty of room (and space for the teenagers to escape when they needed to!) It's very pretty and full of character, with everything you'll need during your stay. The location is excellent, although a car is needed to drive to the local towns and villages. We loved the BBQ area and made good use of the table tennis, hot tub and swimming pool. The pool area is beautiful and equipped with plenty of comfortable loungers and large umbrellas for when you need a bit of shade. We have rented out similar properties in France and Italy over the years and this is one of the best we've had. Monsieur and Madame Laval were great - helpful and kind but never intrusive.
We felt a little bit unlucky with the weather, having 4-5 days of rain in a fortnight (although we've since discovered this is not untypical for the area). We did struggle a little bit to find things to do locally in the rain, but this would have been a problem wherever we were in France. The caves at Lascaux are well worth a visit. The rest of the time temperatures soared into the 30s and we enjoyed the pool and outdoor space enormously during that time."

"Une semaine de pur bonheur, un accueil chaleureux de Marc et Nathalie qui sont aux petits soins, tout en restant discrets. Le chalet, est propre et fonctionnel, le cadre magnifique. La région est juste magique...et tellement de choses à découvrir sans forcément faire beaucoup de kilomètres. Pour une première c'était trop court, j'y retournerai et je recommande vivement ce petit paradis."

A beautiful and quiet retreat in the center of Dordogne touring
"We spent a week at the end of June at this extraordinary house, and all agreed we could not have done better.
The village is quiet, with no services, but everything - food, necessities, touring - is within a 5-10 minute drive. We were grateful that we had not stayed in Sarlat or one of the nearby small tourist towns; they were extremely congested. Each day it was special to return to Maison d'Etre, the pool, the terrace, the great kitchen, and all its comforts.
We like to shop for food and cook at home as much as possible. The Sunday market at St Cyprien and the Wednesday market at Sarlat were great events in themselves, and made it possible to have fresh local food every day of the visit. The kitchen has everything one could want (and we are demanding when it comes to cooking). The supermarket at St Cyprien filled every other random need.
The owners extensive suggestions were extremely helpful, and right on the mark. We followed their advice on canoeing arrangements, markets, and shops and saved a lot of time and aggravation. (You also have to give extra points to owners that name their house with a pun.) The instructions for the house and appliances were detailed and clear. There were instructions for contacting neighbors and others in the event of problems, but we had no need, as everything worked without a hitch. There were detailed TV instructions, but we never turned it on. The dining room is large and well appointed, but we ate every meal on the terrace.
We had two or three days of extreme heat (over 100 F) and the stone house kept comfortably cool, and the pool and shaded outdoor dining made it enjoyable. The master bedroom and bath is large and very well appointed. The two upstairs bedrooms were less fancy but quite comfortable. They did get hot during the heat wave, but that we cured with a cheap electric fan.
We hope to return to the Dordogne and its great sights and food, and beautiful river. We have not found anything that suits a visit better than La Maison d'Etre."

"Un gîte très bien situé proche de toutes les activités, attractions et restaurants de la région Périgord. Un accueil chaleureux par la propriétaire qui nous a donné de très bons conseils!
La location en elle même est très appréciable, deux chambres avec grand lit et literie très confortable, une terrasse en plein soleil, ce qui est fort agréable, bien équipé et bien agencé. Gîte très propre et très bien entretenu avec jolie décoration intérieure, moderne et sobre. La piscine est également très propre et chauffée. Bref, une location saisonnière à recommander sans hésitation!!"
