- english, french
About Marc Smith
Our English-French family have enjoyed Queyssel as a holiday home for nearly 50 years. It has been a wonderful place to while away the long hot summers and the occasional festive Christmas holiday as we've grown up over the years. Now the house is being enjoyed by the 3rd family generation too.
Marc Smith purchased this House in 1970
Why Marc Smith chose Queyssel
Our family home offers a comfortable and relaxed environment where all the basic needs are covered: comfortable bedrooms, big kitchen and dining area, large swimming pool (security fence protected). A perfect location for a self catered holiday with family and friends.
What makes this House unique
Quiet and tranquil, set in a rural hamlet, but not far from the delightful town of Eymet, Les Volets Rouges is a haven for Francophiles and their family & friends to enjoy a relaxed break in the Lot et Garonne / Dordogne. But, if you chose, there's lots to do in the area; golfing, cycling, wine tasting, historic visits... so make it your base-camp and come back after a day of activity to jump straight into the pool or slump into a hammock.

Ideal for a great family hoiday
As a family of 10 (7 adults and 3 children) we found Les Volets Rouge to be the ideal place for a great family holiday. The house was spacious, comfortable, very well equipped and full or character. We particulary enjoyed the huge gardens and pool area, where we spent most of our days having fun in the pool, relaxing and eating. The property is surrounded by plenty of mature trees which provided ample shady places away from the hot summer sun. It's in a very quiet location with some lovely nearby villages and towns to explore.

Beautifully picturesque, spacious and rambling...
A week at Les Volets Rouge was the prefect antidote to the stresses of working life at home in England and gave us the opportunity to enjoy the company of a large group of our friends. We only wished it had been a month.
The house is beautifully picturesque, spacious and rambling, with comfortable nooks for every mood and requirement.
The spacious and well kept gardens and the orchard are a delight, allowing us to wander and explore, soak up the sun around the pool and eat outside in a variety of choice spots on different lawns and terraces: - enough space for our friends all to be together or do their own thing without leaving the grounds.
Idyllic, relaxing and near enough to charming and historic local towns for a quick trip to fetch the breakfast croissants, visit the markets or eat out in the evening, but far enough away to be entirely tranquil.
Enough WiFi and phone coverage to be connected when necessary, but not too much so as to be troubled by either.
We are looking forward to returning to this special place.

Environnement paisible et agréable mais propreté et entretien à revoir
Les points positifs : environnement très calme, maison avec beaucoup de charme extérieur, beau jardin, belle piscine et possibilité de cueillir des fruits dans le verger
Les points négatifs : manque de propreté (toiles d'araignée jusque dans la porte du four, réfrigérateurs sales avec parfois même de la moisissure, couvertures nauséabondes ) et d'entretien general (joint de salle de bain, portes qui ferment mal, cuisine à rafraichir, peu d'éclairage, literie à renouveler)
Thank you for your positive comments and for your observations about the condition of the property. We always seek to improve the experience for our guests and will be addressing the issues you have highlighted. Thankfully, the things you have brought to our attention were a one-off down to a new cleaning service provider not being familiar with the house. Normal service has been resumed!
Beaucoup de charme et bien équipé
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans cette belle et grande maison familiale, pleine de charme et bien équipée. Il ne manque rien : piscine, ping pong, baby foot, buanderie, grand jardin...
Par contre, la propreté a vraiment été un problème : des dizaines de toiles d'araignées, ustensiles de cuisine à relaver, frigo et congélateurs très sales... Un grand ménage de fond est vraiment nécessaire.
Thank you for your positive comments, and thank you for brining the other issues to our attention. I’m sorry the house was not found in the state we would have hoped.
We strive to improve the experience for our guests and will address the problems you have highlighted with our cleaner service.
