“Wonderful barn in secluded location but very close to all the Dordogne sights”
Reviewed August 18, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A wonderful barn in a first class location. We really couldn't think of anything more we could want. Beautiful barn conversion, all the facilities you'd expect; brilliant swimming pool; secluded location so you can escape all the tourists, yet bang in the middle of the best part of the Dordogne/Vezere valleys to visit the touristy things without driving more than 15-20 mins for most things - the river, canoeing, the castles, the caves, Le Bugue market and other night markets like St Cyprien and Audrix, etc, etc. Perfect for families. And close to Bergerac airport too. What more could you want?

Thank you for the feedback - it's lovely to hear that the barn offered all you needed and that your family enjoyed their stay. The local markets, including the wonderfully enchanting night markets, offer a fantastic opportunity to buy some of the delicious local food and wine. Great to hear you experienced this!

“Beautifully located gite with stunning pool.”
Reviewed August 1, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We loved the gite. the location was private with lots of walks on your doorstep.
The downstairs was always cool and had plenty of space. The upstairs was very hot at times, but the fans helped. Personally I could have done with a much thinner duvet on the double bed. The bathrooms were well appointed and it was nice to have a TV and wifi.
The pool was glorious, and a wonderful refuge on boiling hot days. We all swam about 3 to 4 times a day.
The kitchen was well equipped and useful to have the dishwasher, although we didn't need to use it. The washing machine flummoxed us at first, but Alex was very quick to respond and informed us that the knob needed to be pulled out. Something I had never encountered before!
The rooms could have done with a more thorough hoover (into the corners and under furniture), but we weren't really bothered, although this could have been a problem for asthmatics. Alex tells me this is in hand and shouldn't be a problem in future.
Overall, a fantastic gite and a wonderful holiday.

We're delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay at La Guillarmie, with what sounds like some exceptionally hot weather. Great to hear you made full use of the pool! The suggestion you make about thinner duvets is very helpful and we have now purchased these. Thank you for the feedback!

“Stunning barn!!”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Absolutely fantastic barn - beautifully converted, excellent decor and all modern necessities. Would definitely recommend to anyone and we'll be sure going back there next time. Fabulous pool area and outdoor space with lots of things to do locally. Alex, the owner, was always very helpful and easy to contact. Convenient location, very near to Le Bugue, where you can do your shopping and experience the local market for fresh and local food. There are so many things to do around the area. Every day was a great day out - the prehistoric caves, amazing castles, medieval towns, gardens, you can never get bored here!! Our favorite trip was to Le Chateau Des Milandes, home of Josephine Baker, which also offers a fantastic birds of pray show. The property more than met our expectations.

Thank you for such a lovely review! We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay so much and that the property, pool and gardens lived up to your expectations. Our local town, Le Bugue, really does come to life with the weekly markets and shopping for food and drink is always great fun. You would be more than welcome to come and stay again...and hopefully get to see some of the other attractions that the Dordogne offers!

“stunning location”
Reviewed June 13, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We arrived at La Guillarmie and were stunned by its location and its charm .
The house keeper / cleaning lady greeted us as we arrived a very warm welcome given even though we arrived a little early .
The house keeper had not quite finished her duties but was kind enough to let us put our groceries away that we had collect from the local supermarket.
we were a little disappointed to find that the lady had only made the master bedroom up with fresh bedding as the information had not been passed on that our party of 2 had been changed to 5 a few weeks prior to our arrival ,so in a way we were very glad she was their and she promptly made up the further 3 beds required.
we also think that the lovely gite could do with a little more care and attention cleaning wise especially behind and underneath beds we took into account the fact she had not quite finished cleaning but this was in the room that had been made ready for our arrival.
May we also say that the pool which was wonderful for the children would have been nice to have had a couple of poolside chairs for the adults to lie /sit when the children were playing and being supervised as it is a little distance from the gite my husband found it a little difficult to carry garden chairs to the pool and back each day .
Overall our holiday was enjoyable as the gite was so charming and full of character we could see how Alex father completely fell in love with the place we would recommend to family and friends if the little things mentioned above were taken into consideration as we feel La Guillarmie is deserving of it

“Beautiful location, will be back!”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

A beautiful Barn conversion set in stunning surroundings. We could not have asked for more from our stay at La Guillarmie. We stayed there for 1 week in April and with 2 families of four there was more than enough space to accommodate us all. Very disabled friendly and Alex, the owner, was very helpful in every aspect from booking, directions and information and very kindly arranged for us to have use of a portable wheel chair ramp for the duration of our stay.
We are already looking into our next trip back to Le Bugue and will hopefully make a yearly return visit as it really is that beautiful.

We had a great stay at the barn. The property is in a wonderful location, very secluded with lots of private outdoor space and a fantastic swimming pool which the kids loved. The barn itself has loads of French traditional character and charm, while still having all the mod cons we needed. We'll be returning.
