The house was as charming as the photos suggested and very comfortable. The pool and the outdoor garden table for dinner were fantastic additions to our holiday. There is a lot to do in the surrounding area that can cater for many interests. Would recommend the house and the area to anyone!
A beautifully appointed and very comfortable family house set in picturesque countryside, with easy access to all amenities. Luxury linen and a fully equipped kitchen as well as a real fire to snuggle up by made it feel like a home from home.The new pool was a most welcome addition. A perfect base from which to visit the stunning cosmopolitan city of Bordeaux, its vineyards and the historic locality. Bergerac markets really worth a visit too. We will definitely be returning to Les Galiineaux! Thank you for making us feel so welcome in your home.
What a perfect break in this beautiful French Farmhouse. Packed full of rustic charm and very tastefully furnished. I felt there was a great balance between maintaining the original features, while having a few modern luxuries such as a good shower and Smeg fridge! Having the bikes was a real bonus as we could get out and about. Great bargains to be had at the local markets and not too far from Bordeaux. Highly recommended.
A great home for the family. The house sleeps 10 and has plenty of space and plenty of character. Particularly liked the master bedroom. Newly fitted country style kitchen. It was 38c degrees when we were there and so it was nice to take a dip in the pool from time to time. Rgds SN
Absolutely fantastic time had by all. House was beautiful, exceeded our expectations. Lots of space for us to chill both outside in the garden, playing chess and inside in front of the log burning fire with a glass or two of gorgeous French wine from nearby wineries. And cheese!
Plenty of day trip opportunities. We'd recommend Bergerac, half an hour away, Eymet , half hour in another direction (great Italian restaurant) and Bordeaux is beautiful. Saint Emilion was a beautiful town, about 40 minutes west and well worth a visit.
Sainte Foy La Grande is lovely. Gorgeous walk along Dordogne. Lovely restaurants Le Huit and Victor Hugo were our favourites. Market day on a Saturday well worth a potter around.
All in all would thoroughly recommend staying here. We will be back!
We came here just for a short winter break but will certainly be coming back again later in the year! The house is absolutely lovely with plenty of space and full of rustic farm house charm. The owner has done a fantastic job in maintaining the original character of the building while providing all the comfort one is looking for on a relaxed holiday. Not to forget the location itself which has plenty to offer in terms of things to see and do and is definitely worth a trip for anyone loving the French country side, culture and wine!
The house was comfortable, spacious and well designed for easy, relaxed holiday living. All in beautiful countryside. Wonderful food and local wines on the doorstep. We very much enjoyed swimming in the Dordogne as well as one of the local lakes - great for the children. In the end we all liked it so much we have booked to go again in August!
