Review 1

"What a gem of a Gite!,beautifully presented and well equipped with all mod cons,having quality furniture and linens and the best welcome pack I have ever seen.

Review 2

Set in the lovely Dordogne countryside with fabulous views.Just the place to rest and recharge your batteries or explore the many Chateaus and Bastide villages of the Dordogne.I would highly recommend this fantastic hideaway.

Review 3

Where do I start? I've had a lot of holidays over the years and stayed at a lot of hotels, b&bs and gites. Caroline and Tony's perfect gite stands head and shoulders above anywhere else I've stayed. The location is simply heaven, in the middle of the most peaceful, beautiful Dordogne countryside, with the most stunning views. When we arrived we really couldn't believe our luck. Caroline and Tony are wonderful hosts, a lovely warm welcome on arrival, the most remarkable welcome pack I've ever seen, and although their always available for advice, they're always respectful of your privacy and never ever intrusive. Next - the gite. I really don't know how to describe it other than simply perfect. It looks lovely on the photos, but the photos really don't do it justice. It is immaculate, fitted to the very highest standards, but you also feel instantly at home. There's nothing you could want for and nothing that's been overlooked. It's a credit to their obvious hard work in converting it to a gite, but also reflects their desire to make it as perfect for visitors as they can. We simply had the most relaxing peaceful holiday there and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this gite to anyone. I promise you won't be disappointed if you stay here. If I could give it more than five stars I would! Top marks Caroline and Tony, and thank you for the perfect holiday."

About The Owner

My husband and I have recently purchased L'Heritier. We have taken early retirement and want to share our little idyll. My husband is a keen sailor and I have a great time running the gite and seeing people having an enjoyable holiday. We try to be different in that we do our gites to a high standard and from experience people appreciate it.

The Owner purchased this farmhouse in 2015

Why The Owner chose Parranquet

We chose L'Heritier, as it is a beautiful character property, down a quiet country lane, along which you are more likely to find horses wandering than cars. The house also overlooks a beautiful lake, yet it is only 8 km from Monpazier a beautiful Medieval Bastide Village and a UNESCO World Heritage site. The house is also ideally situated for Bergerac Airport , being approx 35 minutes drive.

What makes this farmhouse unique

L'Heritier is ideally situated in a rural location, but also convenient for restaurants and day to day shopping and sightseeing, being only 8 km from Monpazier and the same distance from Villereal. Sitting on the borders of the Dordogne and Lot et Garonne Departments, means that the attractions of both area are within easy reach. There are many beautiful Medieval bastides and Chateaux within easy travelling distance, fantastic restaurants and of course, it wouldn't be a trip to France,without visiting a vineyard or two. Also only 1 hour 30 mins from Toulouse or Bordeaux, if you would like to visit the Cities for a day

Fabulous Gite!

  • 5 of 5

The gite was beautiful with everything that we needed for a relaxing holiday and the welcome pack left by the owners was amazing and very thoughtful with lots of local produce. Even though the owners live next door to the property they were not intrusive but were always on hand for any queries. The pool is a great with a view of the lake, which makes for a lovely evening walk. There is plenty of ground for boule or badminton when it's not too hot!

There is plants to do in the area including canoeing, cycling or just visiting the many local markets in the surrounding villages.

Communication regarding booking was very easy and nothing was too much trouble for Caroline.

Thank you for a lovely holiday, we hope to return sometime.

Absolutely fabulous!!

  • 5 of 5

From the warmest of welcomes, to the most amazing welcome pack, this gorgeous farmhouse and our hosts Tony and Caroline were absolutely fabulous!

Thank you both for such a wonderful stay in your lovely 'gite' - we loved it so much we didn't want to leave - the location is perfect, enabling us to easily get around the region, an abundance of excellent eateries meant we were spoilt for choice, and there is just so much to see and do within an hour or two's drive. Our only complaint - our stay went far too quickly and it was soon time to leave!

The farmhouse has been decorated and furnished with much love and style, typically French and simply lovely! The 10m x 5 m pool offered much delight, and even the poolside furniture was of a high standard.

Tony and Caroline were the perfect hosts, always there if needed but never intrusive.

Highly recommended and we hope to return! Thank you for a great holiday! xx
