“Truly Amazing Holiday!”

We had a 2 week stay at Lemonie Gites in 'La Grange' which is the 3 bed gite. We were instantly taken back by how beautiful the grounds are and how welcoming John and Terry (the owners) are. We had seen photos on the website and as stunning as they are, they really don't do it justice! The interior of La Grange has been beautifully renovated and has a particularly spacious open plan living area which is perfect for a family. John and Terry had kindly left a welcome pack of essentials; milk, bread, eggs, soft drinks, a lovely tea set and even wine and a freshly baked homemade cake! Which was delicious.

The brand new pool was a huge hit with our two young children and it was difficult to prize them away to visit some of the beautiful places that surround Lemonie Gites. There are so many places to go that we didn't have time to do it all so we are planning to return next summer. Some of the highlights for us were the local towns of Aubettere and St Aulay as they both have lovely river beaches and plenty of restaurants to choose from for relaxing lunches and evening meals. We also visited Brantome and St Emilion which are both breathtaking places to visit in their own right.

Another highlight of our stay was the fact that John and Terry were kind enough to take us to a couple of local village festivals where you get to experience real local life. This is something you wouldn't normally expect to do during a family holiday and the fact we had the privilege to experience this will leave lasting memories for our family, it was such a nice touch.

Another nice touch was the fact John and Terry hosted 'pizza nights' each Friday which brought everyone together where freshly made pizzas were baked in the outdoor stone oven, it was lovely. It's worth pointing out that all of this was entirely optional and there was no pressure to go along. I'm glad we did though as the night markets and pizza nights proved to be the best nights of the holiday!

In truth there was absolutely nothing negative about our stay at Lemonie Gites and we cannot recommend this place highly enough. We will be back again in August 2017!

This is a new gite complex nestling in Les Essards. I have been here for the best part of a week and it has been a while since I slept so well. Mine hosts Terry and John go out of their way to ensure that everyone is happy and catered for. The accommodations are beautifully finished and light and airy (see photos). The property is set amidst beautiful fruit trees and flower borders, and it benefits from a recently completed 12 metre heated swimming pool. The third member of the hosting team is Brandon, a griffon, and the Gites are dog friendly. On Friday night we had a pizza night where everyone chose their own toppings and the pizzas were then cooked in the outside pizza oven, with wine flowing freely and a convivial atmosphere. The Gites are only 10 minutes from Aubeterre and there are plenty of things to do within a short radius. I can't recommend this place highly enough. I will be back!!!!!
