Wonderful gite, so relaxing and extremely well equipped. We have had a fantastic time with so much really nearby. Loved the caves, chateaux and gardens. Fabulous restaurant – Le Moulin de Beune
Sharon & Vaughan, Bedfordshire, September 2017
Really enjoyed our first ever visit to the Dordogne. Visited so any places. Particularly liked the markets in St Cyprien and Sarlat. Font de Gaume caves and the caves at Padirac. Domme and Limeuil very scenic and canoeing was great fun. Our favourite restaurant was Les Combarelles, wish we had gone before the last night. Lovely house which had everything we would every need. Thank you for all your help especially with the car !.
Morgan, London, September 2017
Wow what a 2 weeks. Weather not so great but we have still had a brilliant time. House is perfect, cannot fault it. We have eaten at La Maison, Moulin de Beaune, could not get into Cro Magnon so worth a book. Visted Rocamodour, Limeuil, Beynac, Castelnaud, Les Milandes. All brilliant, will return soon I hope.

Mette & Martin, Denmark, July 2017
Amazing place and the most lovely hosts
We spent 2 weeks in Nikki and Darryls charming gites and couldn’t have asked for more. Very nice and big house and a perfect swimmingpool for the kids and grown ups. Many things to do in the area – with a big help from all the great tips in the book at the gite. We can especially recommend Au Bon Acceuil – the best french cooking in the beautiful town of Limeuil. Hopefully we’ll come back again someday. The kids already miss Nikki, Darryl, the cat Skitty, the fish, the frog and the playground. Perfect holiday! Mette & Martin, dk
Sylvie W, US, July 2017
Charming and Spacious with lovely garden and pool
We were a family of 9 and had an amazing stay at Nikki and Daryl’s lovely property. Starting with the welcome basket to Nikki being available to answer our questions, we couldn’t have asked for more. Plenty of things to do for kids and extra bonus, a friendly kittycat to greet you when you arrive back home from your daily adventures! The house is beautiful, outside and in, and the gardens well cared for. Our kids enjoyed the pool, the ping pong table and we rented bikes to get around. Highly recommend. Also, very close to many prehistoric caves, if you are interested in that.

Malgaive , France, May 2017
Un séjour de rêve entre amis. Tout est dit dans le titre, propriété très bien entretenue composée de 3 gîtes. Une piscine et un jardin magnifique. Nikki nous attendait à notre arrivée le dimanche avec, dans chaque gîte un petit panier de bienvenue très appréciable (lait, beurre, baguette, rosé,….) Sa sympathie et sa discrétion en font une hôtesse parfaite. Merci à Nikki et son mari pour leur accueil. Nous reviendrons.

We have visited many Gites in Europe and few have displayed the amount of thought, work and taste that Daryl and Nikki have put into these homes – they brim with character, possess all the comforts and are so well kept.
