About Diane

Hi - and welcome to my gite page! I've lived in France for almost twenty years now! I was born in Altrincham, Cheshire, but loved travelling, so I spent time in the USA, Canada and Australia, before settling in France. I'm a teacher, and work in Sarlat during the school year.

Diane purchased this Cottage in 2003

Why Diane chose Saint-Crépin-et-Carlucet

I fell in love with this property, after looking at so many, in different areas for more than three years. I lived in La Rochelle for seven years, working at the University, and needed a house I could drive to during the holidays.

What makes this Cottage unique

The gite is in a small hamlet, surrounded by fields and is very, very quiet. However, the unique feature is that there is a pub/restaurant just a two minute walk from the gite which serves food typical of the area - so, after travelling to get here, you can relax in the restaurant.

                                                          Fabulous gite in a lovely location.

                                                          Gail B.

                                                          We enjoyed a great week in this lovely gite, well equipped and very comfortable. The location is beautifully rural, yet convenient to Sarlat and so many things to do. Local shops etc only a short drive. Also the wonderful Black Duck restaurant a two minute walk away.

                                                          Spending a peaceful evening sitting outside the gite was idyllic and so very relaxing. The added bonus was the wonderful host Diane (and Florette) next door. Whilst being unobtrusive she was friendly, great chat and eager to help in anyway.

                                                          We will definitely return.

                                                          Lovely quiet spot from which to explore the area.

                                                          Robert B.

                                                          Delighted with the property, it comes complete with everything you could possibly need.

                                                          It is situated in a lovely sunny, shelterd spot.

                                                          Diane is very welcoming and is next door should you require anything, but is not intrusive.

                                                          Floret, her dog is an absolute treasure, and was a bonus for us, as we had left our dog back in the UK.

                                                          A gentle stroll down the lane brings you to the Black Duck, a French Irish pub/resturant, great food and atmosphere.

                                                          Would recommend this gite to anyone.

                                                          Lovely gite and helpful owner!

                                                          Nicholas C.

                                                          We had a great time in this lovely rural setting. It's in easy reach of the lake, cycling from Sarlat and Canoing on the dordogne. lovely meal up the road in the Black Duck. We managed a little sight seeing too as much as can be expected with young boys but they had plenty to do and the gite has wifi to dvd etc which was handy while we prepared food etc. thanks Diane for all your help and such a warm welcome! Nick Katie and the boys

                                                          Heerlijk vakantiehuis van alle gemakken voorzien!!

                                                          Sven S.

                                                          Wat een heerlijk vakantiehuis! Schitterend gelegen vlak naast een mooi oud kerkje. Het huis heeft alles wat je nodig hebt en is een prima uitvalsbasis voor veel leuke uitstapjes in de Dordogne. We werden hartelijk verwelkomd door Diane en haar lieve hond Florette. Mede door dit warme welkom voelden we ons er meteen thuis! Kortom: zeker een aanrader!!!

                                                          An excellent gite in a wonderful setting

                                                          Margaret S.

                                                          The property was in an excellent setting, peaceful, easy for going on walks, it was spotless and there was everything you required for a homeaway holiday especially when you are travelling on your own or family. The host was excellent, very caring and knowledgeable of the area. I loved the church bells and there was a restaurant nearby with excellent food. You do need a car for the area. I would recommend this gite .

                                                          Don't Tell Everyone How Good this Place is.

                                                          Carl T.Cambridge

                                                          We had a wonderful holiday in the le manor du Carlucet. It's a perfect combination of a well equipped and functional accommodation and a location that is tranquil, peaceful and spiritually uplifting. The added bonus is having Diane and her very friendly dog florette living next door. We will be going back. Just don't tell everyone how good it is.
