“A great week had by all the family”
Reviewed August 8, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This is a perfect little hide away for a family of 4 just 10 mins north of the River Dordogne. We were given very clear information as to how to find the Gite and found it both very well equipped (Washing Machine, Dishwasher, Coffe Machine - essential) and very clean. The rustic / rural exterior is reflected in characterful internal beams and fireplace but everything else about the property is bang up to date with a small but well equipped Kitchen and modern shower room / wet room. While the internal rooms are by no means huge they are adequate for a family of four (inc. two growing teenage boys) for a week. A particularly nice touch is the balcony that opens up from the master bedroom. You can sit here and sip your coffee while the children sleep on. The view is of the trees and farmland as it disappears down the valley towards the river (not in sight). If we were being really, really picky the fact that the toilet is on the ground floor means the stagger to the loo in the wee small hours requires a night navigation down the stairs. We spent most of our time sat outside on the terrace where we ate all our meals, watched the sun go down and the stars come out. Excellent communication via email prior to and during our stay simply added to the ease of use, though it was the suggested itinerary that we found most useful as it enabled us to enjoy some of the local events as well as planning for trips further afield.

“Beautiful French Country Home”
Reviewed August 22, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The Gite is beautiful and looks like it is out of a French Countryside book! It was relaxing and close to many castles and amazing towns. My children (ages 5 & 8) loved it and did not want to leave. Everything was clean and comfortable.

Deb is amazing and provides tons of information and suggestions on where to visit and explore. Correspondence with her was easy, fast and she is extremely knowledgeable.

It was an amazing experience!

“Perfect hideaway with easy access to main areas of the Dordogne”
Reviewed August 9, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Thank you so much for a comfortable and enjoyable stay at Le Recoux. It was in a perfect location for us to explore the Vezere and Dordogne rivers on the kayaks or to delve into the scenic parts of Beynac and Domme, yet return up the hill to our little home for a BBQ on the terrace. The owners itinerary was excellent, which we did follow on some days, especially the marches nocturne in Audrix. Thank you so much and I'm sure we will be back again!

“Our Week in Gîte Le Recoux”
Reviewed May 31, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The owner advised us early on that Gîte Le Recoux was difficult to find. With a GPS that would not play ball we searched unsuccessfully for some time. Although we had a series of photos to guide us and notes, in the end we sought help from the locals. One lovely lady took the photos, signalled follow me and 30 minutes later she found our Gîte. Have a current GPS!
The Gîte only recently entered the rental scene and can accommodate a family of four or, in our case, three adults, one in the bunks in the upstairs bedrooms. If your are expecting five star modern fittings, go elsewhere, as only one downstairs toilet might not be acceptable to some. But if you want a real French country experience, away from noisy streets and neighbours, this is the place. Some can find fault with the best accommodations and we had some minor settling in events. But we accepted them as part of the experience and were soon relaxed and enjoying the views from the patio. We were most ably supported by the owner's local contact Claude, an 80 year old gem of a man. No problem could not be solved without his cheery smile.
The Gîte is closer to Saint Cyprien than Sarlat and we spent some time in the town at various friendly cafes and the magnificent Sunday markets. We had many day trips to the surrounding country using the extensive and excellent guide provided by the owner well before our trip.
In summary, our first visit to France, the Gîte, the friendliness of the Le Recoux and Saint Cyprien locals and the historical sites we visited was an experience that will stay in our minds for a long time.
