Though seasoned travelers all, when our best travel friends joined us at Le Mas this spring, we all agreed that it was the finest blend of creature comforts, peaceful isolation and convenient location imaginable. The owners were discrete hosts, but always available and eager to share their recommendations and enthusiasm for this wonderful region of France. All bedrooms were ensuite with premium linens and bath products. The house was impeccable, the kitchen expertly outfitted, and the renovations designed to balance gathering space and privacy for all. No detail was overlooked. The outdoor dining room and kitchen overlooked the pool and adjoining countryside--the perfect place to watch the sunset. We could not have asked for more.
We came here as a group of 8 musicians looking for some peace and quiet to work on some new songs.
Our hosts, Rupert and Franck were welcoming and helpful. Throughout our stay they were unobtrusive but were always available if we needed anything.
The house was immaculate, and we really appreciated the excellent and sympathetic decor. Our hosts had thought of everything that guests might need, including outstanding views over the local countryside!
This was certainly the best, and most comfortable gite we have ever hired and we will be returning.
We cannot fault this gite - it simply is the best we have ever stayed in. The design of this renovated property has been carefully thought through by the owners with true empathy for the needs of their guests. For example, we were in a group of 8 - a group of musicians wanting to work on new material and thought had been given to the best possible space for us to work in and furniture moved to accommodate that.
Immaculate presentation and very well equipped with everything one could possibly need for a great holiday in a beautiful setting. We are already planning our next stay!
If you are looking for a perfect house for your family and friends in the beautiful hills of the Dordogne, look no further!
This house has everything you need, want, hope for and more and I am 100% sure you will love it.
The beds are amazing, with Egyptian cotton sheets, the kitchen is big and great and has everything you need for cooking long tastefull diners, there are two fire places, a sitting area where you can chill on a rainy day and the garden with pool, various sitting areas where you can watch the sunset with a nice glass of wine:) And don't forgot the great outdoor kitchen and professional bbq which makes this place heaven on earth. Every time I am there, I do not want to leave.
The area is amazing, with romantic French middle age villages, the Kayaking on the river the Dordogne, the castles, the roads, its just everything.
I visited Le Mas with a group of 10 friends and we had a lovely time. The rooms are big and they are minimalistic, but beautifully decorated. The owners are very helpful and make you feel right at home with their short but effective tour of the estate.
The owners live on the estate themselves, but ones you have the key to the castle you feel like its yours for the days you booked and if you dont want to, you dont see them again.
(But if you have a flat tire and you need to go to the airport, they are there to help, tnx Rupert!.)
You got more then enough room in the beautiful garden and you can enjoy lots of different sitting areas with your friends. Our you can find that wel deserved privacy on the bench underneath the tree to watch the sunset.
See you next year!
Rupert and Frank have created a perfect place. We stayed for ten days and count them as friends who were attentive not only to every detail but to our goals for our trip and explorations. We are intending to make the Dordogne a second home but can't conceive of living any other place but Le Mas.
Le Mas is a beautiful and characterful house with stunning views of the peaceful countryside! The owners have provided a real home from home, filled with the extra touches rarely found in holiday rentals. We were a party of eight adults hoping for a relaxing break to help my parents recover from a stressful year and we all agree we couldn't have picked a better place. Rupert and Franck are most generous and welcoming hosts who make it obvious from the start, their goal ..is for you to have a great holiday. They are attentive and helpful if you need anything..but equally unobtrusive...allowing you to feel that Le Mas is your special place for the time you are there. Which we did, we had an amazing time!!! Highlights for us were the tasteful decor, super comfy beds and bedding, top-end appliances, roaring fires, lovely bathrooms, (one wheelchair accessible) fabulous welcome pack and the cupboard FULL of great books and games. The only negative is...we didn't want to leave! We hope to return in the summer as this is a very special place and we can't wait to use the fabulous pool and summer kitchen area. Thanks both of you for an absolutely wonderful week.
