“Bad feelings at the end of a 10 day stay”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The setting is very nice and the location is within driving distance of many Dordogne sights. Our lovely vacation in this area was somewhat marred by the owners' irregular payment method; asking for a money transfer, not recommended by VRBO. Their persistent insistence that we pay for a banking fee that they incurred when transferring our euros to pounds at their British bank added to our discomfort. In the end they let it go because exchange rates made the amount negligible, but the way that it was handled tainted our overall experience.
It is difficult to recommend this place when payment discrepancies of their making and their basic distrust of people shows in the double inspection of the premises regarding the damage deposit.
We are a retired couple who travel widely and have never before been treated in this way.

In reply to your comments i must say that in 7 years we have never had any problems with our payment methods before. At no time were you asked to pay our bank charges.As for the so called double inspection, the property was quickly inspected when you left at 5.30am to catch your plane as a favour to you.If you had read your contract it clearly states that the deposit is returned to you within one week of vacating,but we helped you again .What a pity that you couldnt be bothered to pay us the courtesy of removing your garbage.SELF CATERING means that you should leave it as you found it.

We stayed at Les Plantous for 2 weeks and loved every minute of it. From our arrival to the day we left everything was fantastic. The property is extremely well presented and offered everything we needed, the hot tub being an added bonus!!
The pool was a welcome sight after a day out sightseeing or by the river. The charcoal BBQ also sat in an area next to the pool along with a seating area which was perfect for eating in the evening. The grounds that the house is set in were stunning and superbly well looked after. We really appreciated the lovely touch of the welcome wine and cheese platter. The sunbeds by the pool were probably the most comfortable we have experienced! The small touches were also taken care of like plenty of towels and Wi-Fi. There was more than enough room for us all. The house is perfectly situated in a very peaceful area but only 5 - 10 mins drive from the local patisserie and small supermarket.

From our experience, in August, we would recommend going early to the place being visited as nearly all the towns in the area got very busy from midday onwards. Our personal favourites were La Roque Gageac (15 mins drive) where we found a great swimming spot and the town of Domme (10 min drive) which offers fantastic views of the river. We would recommend a day canoeing on the river - we used Copeyre Canoes in Vitrac on recommendation of Bob and were not disappointed, so much so that we went again during our second week.

Our hosts Bob and Di couldn't have been any better. We honestly felt that we were staying with friends. They were always on hand if we needed advice on the area and where to visit as well as recommending some quieter swimming spots, or just for a general chat about things but at no time did we feel they were intrusive. We all felt that they thoroughly enhanced our holiday. Our kids loved their 2 dogs Bailey and Suzi.

We thoroughly recommend Les Plantous as a perfect base to explore this fantastic area of France. Thank you Bob and Di, we can't wait to stay with you again as soon as we can.

“The best choice in the best part of the Dordogne.”

We had made a booking for one week but stayed for two weeks because we enjoyed Les Plantous and the surrounding area so much. Bob and Diane are marvellous hosts. They are never intrusive but always available when help or advice is needed. Nothing is ever too much trouble to them. We enjoyed every element of our holiday, from visiting the lovely towns and villages which are quite close by to the beautiful scenery of this magnificent part of France - not to mention the fabulous food and wine. The Saturday market at Sarlat is a must.
