An excellent 3 weeks in a beautiful part of the country. We were greeted by the lovely Karine and given the guided tour, no small matter as the extensive accommodation was spread over 3 floors( I recommend the top floor suite with balcony). Despite visiting in early September we were able to use the excellent pool every day as temperatures ranged from the mid 20s to early 30s.
The extensive grounds were perfect for playing with our border collie and one of the outbuildings housed a full sized table tennis table.
The property is well placed for trips into the surrounding countryside and yet a few steps through the orchard brought us up onto the main drag of Gourdon, a lovely mediaeval town built into the hillside.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this property, it’s 2 kitchens, 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms were far more than we required, however, a larger party could be comfortably accommodated.
A repeat booking is a distinct possibility.
Perfect property for families and great location for access to town and surrounding areas
We were a family of 8 with ages from 2 to 89 and we had a fantastic 2 weeks in this perfect property. There is plenty of room over 3 floors for either spending time together or some quiet time alone. The property has great facilities, with the pool and large gardens being of great use in the recent very hot spell. The town was at the end of the garden and gave great opportunity for getting fresh bread everyday within a 5 minute walk away and also access to shops and restaurants.
The house is very well equipped with plenty of towels, bed linen, kitchen gadgets and a washing machine if needed.
We have a very enjoyable holiday at this house and the location and surrounding areas. We recommend this beautiful property without hesitation.
A great week
My husband and I plus 3 friends booked this property for a week. We kept wondering what we had actually booked since we could see the property was so large. Turns out the booking was for the entire thing! We felt quite "to the manor born". Pool, grounds, out buildings, gated property. It was all amazing.
The house itself was interesting with two kitchens and some odd placement of bedrooms on the ground floor. We had fun speculating about the original use of all those rooms. We also wondered if there had been someone living in the house full-time before we arrived since it seemed as though we had moved into a person's home rather than a rental house. The house had very much a "lived-in" feel which was both good and bad depending on one's perspective.
The location of the house was excellent. A walk up the side path and we were in the town. Two bakeries in easy walking distance. Also the town was interesting for wandering and there were restaurants close by. We rented bikes and did some touring in the area which was a lot of fun. We did note that the town is on a hill. A most definite hill.
The weather was marginal during our stay but after one cycle ride, we were sufficient hot to use the pool. It was glorious. The very large grounds could use some intense gardening, but we enjoyed the space all the same. Easy to store our bikes in one of the out buildings and room for numerous limos in the driveway if we had them. Getting in and out of the driveway was a bit exciting because the road is so busy and the visibility is not ideal. Still, it was all very manageable.
Our deposit was returned very promptly. Since we were still in France, the deposit was returned via the postal bank. It was incredibly efficient and we thank the wonderful Karine for making this all happen. Also we thank Karine for responding so quickly with a plumber when one of the toilets decided to misbehave. She was great.
We would definitely stay here again and would enthusiastically recommend this property to others. We are giving it 4 rather than 5 stars only because it isn't possible to give 4.5 stars. There are a few things that still need work (e.g. the garden, finishing one of the bathrooms) but overall the property is incredible.
