“Just Blissful”
Reviewed August 29, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

You can read about all the facilities that this property has to offer elsewhere; I write about the ambience of the place.
With an extended family ranging from 7 to 70 years old, we all had a simply fantastic week where the beautiful region, a super property, lots to do, lovely host family and wall-to-wall sunshine made for a wonderful holiday.
Glen,Roma and Jamie [our hosts] where magnificent and contributed so much to make our stay such a positive experience. They were always on-hand to help/advise and guide, but were never intrusive. Thanks so much to you all

“Beautiful house, stunning location, perfect hosts. Fantastic.”
Reviewed August 14, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We've just returned from La Chenaie after two weeks in this stunning house set in 42 acres and we couldn't have wanted more.

The hosts Roma and Glen couldn't be more helpful giving advice on where to go for amenities and on things to do.
Sorges is only 5 minutes away and has a small Coop, chemist and bakery and Perigeaux is 20 minutes away with a large supermarket.

La Chenaie is perfect for lazy days by the pool and has fantastic outside areas and plenty for the children to do such as the swings, football and badminton areas and then if arranged with the hosts archery which they couldn't be more accommodating.

The house itself has everything you could want and more and is perfect for large families or groups of friends.

We would definitely recommend La Chenaie to anyone and wouldn't think twice about returning.

Fantastic x

“You need to come here!”
Reviewed August 14, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We have just returned from La Chenaie. We are a family of 5 with children who are 14, 12 and 7 and we were accompanied by our friends and their younger children.

La Chanaie is a stunning property situated in a very quiet and beautiful spot a few miles from the village of Sorges. We have stayed at properties in France many times before and yet to experience a poor one to be fair, however this place takes the top spot and not sure how it could be beaten!

The house is large and beautifully furnished, the outside area is just as good. There is a very large undercover part overlooking the pool which we found ourselves in most of the time, this includes a lounge area and separate dining table. It is no more than an hour from Limoges airport and 20 minutes from the large town of Perigueux. There is a well stocked Co op which is open daily in Sorges or you can travel to Perigueux for a larger shop.

The owners of the property, Glenn and Roma are the perfect hosts. They live in a separate Gite next to the main house and are on hand for anything you wish, but will totally respect your privacy and never intrude. Nothing is ever too much trouble. You will see in other reviews that there is an archery range in the vast grounds. This of course needs to be done under the supervision of Glenn or Roma but you only need to mention it and they drop everything to take you around! Our children found this very enjoyable. Glenn was also kind enough to let us all have a go on his quad bike on a few occasions around the huge field. He even let my 12 year old son have a go on his own (with my permission, he is a sensible lad), you wont see that in many other places! Glenn and Roma's son Jamie also lives on site but again totally respects your privacy. He is so polite and on the rare occasion that you do see him always speaks and passes the time of day.

The pictures of the property do not do it justice in my opinion, it really is perfect.

We were very sad to leave this spectacular place but will return soon. There is literally nothing negative to say, I would highly recommend La Chenaie and urge anyone thinking of visiting this part of France to stay here.

Just returned from a weeks holiday staying in La Chenaie in the dordogne. The house is large and stunningly decorated throughout and there is plenty of room for two large families and a set of grandparents to stay without feeling that you are stepping on anyones toes! The owners are warm and welcoming and were on hand for any advice and were particularly great at teaching adults and children Archery. The terraces and pool area are amazing and the children could hardly tear themselves away to go exploring the rest of the Dordogne (which has loads of interesting places to visit including caves, chateaux, picturesque towns and villages and great canoeing). Many evenings were spent star gazing, sharing a bottle of wine with loved ones on the terrace overlooking the pool and waiting for shooting stars. Also the games room was used every evening as my Father, Husband and brother in law became very competitive over table tennis, pool, darts and pin ball (the children hardly got a look in). Our Children's ages range from 4 to 14 and all of them were happily occupied throughout our stay and our group consisted of 6 adults, 1 teenager and 4 children. If you are considering visiting this area of France then you would be very wise to book La Chenaie for your stay, you will not be disappointed, it has everything you could wish for and more. The owners Glenn and Roma should feel very proud of what they have achieved.

“perfect place to chill with your family”
Reviewed July 15, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This property is beautiful, set in acre's of it's own land.
The rooms are all very clean & recently refurbished to a high standard and successfully blends modern with original traditional styles.
The upper bedrooms have quite low ceilings, the lower bedrooms (2#) don't one of the ground floor bedrooms has an ensuite.
The living rooms on the ground floor (2#) are spacious both have lovely fireplaces with working wood burning stoves and both have wide screen T.V's. The main kitchen / dining room is large with a 10 seat dining table.
The kitchen it's self has everything you'll need to cook for a large family (there were 10 of us), it has a range cooker, large american style fridge with ice & chilled water.
There is also a barbecue on the equally large patio (with another 10 seat table & chairs) we made tons of use of this.
If you read any of my other reviews you'll see that food & eating out is a very important part of our travels, we did not eat out once, that's how good we thought it was!
There is a huge traditional walk in larder (that we managed to fill after our first trip to the shops)
(Note the shops close early on Saturday night & at lunch time on Sunday, so if you are arriving late at the week end best to arrange in advance with the owners to get some food in for you)
There is a heated out door pool with cover, a games room with pool, pin ball table tennis & darts.
Uniquely they also provide archery, the forest has a network of tracks through it most of which lead to a variety of Archery targets, some are even moving targets. Glen & Roma are both competent archers & supervise the activity well. They are patient teachers for the those who have never tried t before.
The owners Glen & Roma live in a Gîte adjacent to the main house, our preconceptions about this were a bit negative but that soon changed, they are on hand should you need anything or any information about the activities nearby but they keep them selves to them selves if you want them to. They are a charming & very friendly couple who made us feel very welcome.
We would definitely consider returning, probably a bit later in the year though, the weather was not good during our stay (untypical of June but that seems to be plant earth now)
