Excellent property near Bergerac
Property is really well presented. Excellent kitchen and large dining room. The entire house is spotlessly clean and the facilities are top quality.
Lovely outdoor patio area for those balmy evenings. Swimming pool is cleaned regularly by the friendly housekeeper. It is a great location to explore the Bergerac region with its local day and evening markets. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend as a holiday destination.
A Very Well Renovated Old Farmhouse - A Gem.
This house is a gem. It is all well looked after and was spotless upon our arrival, which was so welcome after a long journey. The 4 bedrooms are airy and large, with 3 king size doubles and one twin. Ensuite shower in one double with 2 other separate bath/shower rooms, and with 2 separate toilets makes this house a very flexible space. The salon/main room/kitchen is well equipped, (cooker, dishwasher, 2 fridges, freezer etc etc. The lounge at one end of the “all on one floor” property was a welcome space in which to chill-out. The garden area with its gas BBQ and pool is marvellous, and provides a backdrop to the patio, with its large parasol providing shade.
In addition to fortnightly grass cutting we had a weekly towel change (bath, hand, face, swimming, tea) and bed linens changed weekly too, which was a pleasant surprise. The pool was attended to twice weekly, and cleaned when required. Our host’s agent did not invade our space but was available via sms/call to deal with any little problem quickly and efficiently, such a great service, which meant that we could relax properly.
The location 10 mins south of Bergerac (EGC) airport is so convenient. The village of Issigeac is 2 miles away, with baker, butcher and a very well equipped mini-supermarket, the Sunday morning market there is a must see. You can easily visit all the main tourist sites in Dordogne from here within 1 hour’s drive, Sarlat and the caves of Lascaux 4 were favourites of ours.
Overall this house is a holiday home from home, clean, private, quiet and yet close to amenities. Wonderful.
Fantastic House, great location, wonderful stay!
The house is beautifully renovated, very comfortable, very large (it will easily accommodate 8 people) and appointed with everything you might need for a relaxing holiday.
the house is a short 5 minute (3km) drive from Issegiac, a classic French medieval town, with three 3 boulangeries, several excellent restaurants, bars, an excellent small supermarket and a fantastic market day on the weekend. the house is also only 20minutes drive from Bergerac. If you are looking to explore the Dordogne by car this is a really good location to work from.
Communication with Yves (and Solange, who organised the check in and farewelled us) was very friendly, helpful and everything ran very smoothly.
Bottom line, it's a great house, Yves is a wonderful host and I would recommend it to anybody.
Fantastic Property...Great Holiday!
Beautiful property with great accommodation and only a short distance from the lovely town of Isseac. As my son said....the photos don't do the property justice. If it ever comes up for sale my wife would love to buy it! The swimming pool is fantastic and really well maintained.
Evocative rural Gite with excellent facilities at Fontoursine
This Gite is beautifully appointed and very evocative of times past, with stonework, farm memorabilia and wooden beams. It is equipped to the highest standards. This, in addition to the peaceful rural location, the excellent welcome and hosting throughout the stay, ensured a totally relaxing carefree holiday.
Nothing to be improved on. We would love to stay again.
I am delighted that you enjoyed the stay in my house.
Thank you very much for your very kind comments.
It will be a pleasure to welcome you again.
We spent a wonderful week at this property. It is perfect both inside and outside - the pool and surrounding area is gorgeous and the house spacious, well equipped andfresh decoration. and everything was cleaned to the highest standards. The location is ideal. Just a few minutes drive to Issigeac with lovely shops and marketlots of other beautiful towns and attractions nearby. I couldn't recommend this property more highly. We were 2 adults and 2 children (ages 12 and 9) and we all felt this was one of the best holiday properties we have stayed at.
