“La Petite Gemme is a Real Gem”
Reviewed July 18, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Enjoyed 7 nights in La Petite Gemme from 7th to 14th July, and will be back. A well-appointed and airy property in a beautiful part of France. Secluded balcony provides opportunity for all-day tanning. Highly recommended for those wishing to enjoy a taste of La Belle France at its best. Beautiful countryside with vineyards, rivers and sleepy villages to explore. Great walking around Lac L'Escourou (16 kms distant), and good eating at L'Hostellerie des Ducs (all but across the road), Restaurant Don Camillo (even nearer) and Ma Maison.at La Sauvetat du Dropt (15kms), but get there soon - it will cease trading at the end of the summer. Medieval lavoir at nearby St. Sulpice d'Eymet, XVth century murals at the church of St. Eutrope, Allemans du Dropt, andmuch, much more.. The bonus is people watching at the nearby Cafe de la Paix.

“Lovely, airy, quintessentially French, friendly and super clean!”
Reviewed May 3, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The house is in the lovely French town of Duras that has a few restaurants and bars and lovely boulangeries and food shops. What more could you want? It is so pretty and airy, it has just been redone by the owner so is super clean and modern in terms of fittings and very French and chic in terms of style. The owner met us and was lovely and gave us lots of recommendations and even a lift to a chateau for some wine tasting! A lovely few days and we will definitely go again. Thank you Tina for your lovely house.
