Excellent Property and Part of the World
Just home from an amazing week stay at La Verger. The property is picturesque and fully kitted out for all our needs. It helped that we had a week of gorgeous sunshine so made the most of the excellent pool and BBQ facilities. We loved the location of the property as it was easy driving access to all sorts of great places for a visit - vineyards, markets and Castles. We found it a great hub for day trips to Bergerac, Montbazillac, and further afield to the Dodogne valley. We loved market trips to all the little villages, followed by stocking up on food and wine and spending the late afternoon and evening enjoying the villa. The property itself is postcard worthy - we didn't want for anything and the facilities are second to none! Could not recommend this holiday highly enough and will be back for sure!
Stunning property in a beautiful location.
Great relaxing holiday with stunning views
Exactly as it was written and could not fault the property or the location. The pool was cleaned everyday and was great for the kids. The house was well maintained and had everything we were looking for, would go again in a heartbeat.
Dear Alan. Thanks for taking the time to review your stay at Le Verger. We are delighted that you all had such a great time and hope that we can help with your holiday plans again in the future. Best wishes, David & Tracy.
Gorgeous and peaceful
We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful house in a fantastic setting, it couldn't of been any more relaxing. The grounds, pool and house suited all 4 of our children at different ages. I would definitely recommend and return for another stay
Dear Emma. Thank you for your 5 star review of Le Verger, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay so much. We really appreciate your custom and hope that we can welcome you back again in the future. Kind regards, David & Tracy.
Peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings
We had a week with three generations sharing this lovely, spacious house and gardens. There was a good-sized pool, table tennis and terrace for eating out. The rooms were all generous and comfortable. The only criticism was that the bedrooms on the first floor became very hot and it was difficult to cool them down, which meant that the babies had trouble sleeping. However, that said, I would happily come back again for a longer stay.
Dear Naomi. Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay at Le Verger. We are delighted that you had such a wonderful time. We are also pleased to advise that the owner is planning on installing air conditioning in the upstairs bedrooms over the winter as they appreciate that they can be uncomfortable to sleep in for some people when the weather is hot. Thanks again and we hope that we can help with your holiday plans in the future. Kind regards, David & Tracy.
Beautiful house and garden in rural setting
House was beautiful, well-equipped and ticked all our boxes. Garden was lovely, full of breeding birds and Bill & Elaine v attentive at keeping pool spotless. Excellent walks and cycles from the house. Very much the sort of place we like.
Interesting local towns with bastides, castles etc. Several good markets in nearby towns, well stocked Intermarche only few miles away.
We would certainly stay at Le Verger again and would recommend to others.
Dear David. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts after your month long stay at Le Verger, we are so pleased that you enjoyed both the house and the area and hope that we can welcome you back again in the future. Best wishes, David & Tracy.
