We stayed for 3 nights in May in the gite at Petit Clos while attending a reunion with some old school friends. The gite had been lovingly renovated, retaining the high ceilings, open to the rafters, while benefiting from huge walk-in showers in each of the bedrooms. However, the most striking thing about the Petit Clos was the warmth and care that Hank and Cindy brought to every aspect of our stay. This included e-mailing us with a Google map showing the route from Bergerac airport; Cindy at the door on our first morning with croissant fresh from the boulangerie; Hank making a fire for us in the wood-burning stove in the sitting room.
What advice do we have for other travellers? First, we can recommend dinner in one of Cindy’s favourite restaurants, La Terrasse in Duras. Secondly, Buggs Cars provide hire cars at a reasonable price with a straightforward contract and a level of service that puts their larger competitors to shame. But, above all, definitely stay at Petit Clos. We shall do so again. The only change we would make would be to wait until June when the weather is warmer.More
