We spent 5 wonderful days on la Penoterie. Is the perfect place to relax and experience beautiful countryside. Jan and Elly are the most charming couple. Thank you so much for everything we hope to come back soon.

The location is a little out but if you want views and peace and quiet Domaine la Penoterie is the place to go. The owners Elly and Jan could not be more helpful and so very friendly. The gite is well equipped, modern and very cosy. We would thoroughly recommend Domaine la Penoterie
We had one of the best holidays here with friends - great location, great gite with beautiful views and great pool. The owners were amazing and made us a lovely meal on the first night, then made us so welcome throughout. We will be booking again very soon.
You are never exactly sure what you are going to when you book a gite in France, this one was perfect. Jan and Elly were both so friendly and helpful. It all started (in the rain) when we found a wonderful meal waiting for us in the fridge, lemon chicken - very tasty. The buildings and environment had been converted with a real eye for beauty. We shall definitely return.
My daughter and I had a wonderful stay at La Penotorie. We only wish it had been longer! Elly was most kind in providing us with a beautiful meal for our first night, so all we had to do was light the fire and relax! The gite is splendidly set up, and everything that you would possibly need is there for you. I was particularly impressed that Jan an Elly had done so much of the renovation work to La Penotorie themselves - the pointing on the old stone walls, and the work in progress which was a magnificent stone terrace being carefully created by Jan. Walking in the evening, watching the Autumn sunset, was brilliant. We would surely come again, if ever we are fortunate enough to be in this part of France again!

A beautiful little gite in a lovely location with great views of unspoilt countryside and night skies full of stars!! The hosts Elly and Jan are very welcoming and supportive throughout your stay. They generously shares fruit and nuts from their garden so we had fresh figs and walnuts everyday. The gite is such a cosy place to be that we spent every night cooking in the kitchen and snuggling up by the log fire! Montignac is an easy 5 minute drive away and is a lovely little town with plenty of restaurants and shops. The area is perfect for an outdoor holiday - walking, canoeing and exploring the beautiful countryside, old pretty villages and castles at every turn. We had a totally relaxing week with plenty of fresh air and good sleeps. Can't wait to return!
