Michael and Caroline prepared the property beautifully and were wonderful hosts. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The combination of the hospitality and a comfortable house set in a lovely landscape was perfect for us. For us the three dogs and the cat were an added bonus. We will definitely go back.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed August 28, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed at Pauté for a week... After a long drive, we entered the tree-lined road leading to the cottage and were met by Caroline and the 3 dogs Shiraz, Coco and Bonnie. The cottage is warm, cosy, very clean and had everything we needed for our stay... and the welcome basket (especially the bottle of red) were very much appreciated!! The house is just idyllic, perfectly situated for exploring the Dordogne and the views are just beautiful. Bordeaux and Bergerac are worth visiting as are Eymet and the various day and night markets. The kids absolutely loved the pool... And we made the most of the bikes, cycling into Eymet for our daily morning coffee and croissant. We only wish we had booked two weeks as there is so much to see and do in the area.

Thanks for the review and your kind comments. Can we add that if gold stars were awarded for leaving the cottage as clean as you found it, you would have 5*! Hope we see you again in the future if you revisit the area.

“The Perfect French Retreat”
Reviewed August 2, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our stay at this cottage was absolutely fabulous. The drive from Bergerac airport is about 20 minutes on easy roads and the cottage is set high up in a stunning location overlooking rolling farmland and fields. The cottage is beautifully decorated and has every facility you need including a dishwasher and English TV. The pictures don't do the pool justice and the views are amazing - a glass of wine watching the sunset from under the pigeonniere is a fantastic way to end the day.
Mike and Caroline are fantastic hosts, friendly and helpful but never overbearing. However the real stars are the three dogs - Shiraz, Coco and Bonnie along with Rosso the cat. They are great company and really make the experience special.
We are already planning a return visit and would have no hesitation in recommending this holiday cottage.

“Excellent gite with fabulous pool and views”
Reviewed July 24, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We were late booking this year so we were lucky to find this free. The cottage is all that is advertised - welcoming and well appointed with a very good welcome pack left for us, which was unexpected and appreciated. It is well equipped, comfortable, and set in lovely grounds with great views. Our two girls (aged 12 and 10) lived in the swimming pool, which is exceptional and great fun. They were particularly taken with the dogs, Shiraz, Bonnie, and Coco, who were no bother to have around. Mike and Caroline could not have been better hosts, and we were particularly grateful for the 'midnight' drinks, overlooking the pool. For those not familiar with the area, Eymet is an well equipped old town, with good dining and local shops. If you want a relaxing and well-catered holiday let in this area, then we would heartily recommend it.

“As good as promised by the reviews”
Reviewed July 12, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

As all the reviews promised this is a wonderful place to stay. Because of aircraft problems we got there very late in the evening but the gite was warm and welcoming with a very good welcome pack left for us, much appreciated. It is very well equipped, in lovely grounds and the view especially from the swimming pool is inspiring. And as for the dogs, Shiraz, Bonnie, and Coco, and the cat, Rosso, they are a joy and always up for company. Eymet is a good village with an excellent butcher's shop so we made a lot of use of the gas barbeque. The owners are as helpful as promised whilst giving one privacy so all round for a relaxing and well catered holiday in this area you need look no further.

“Wonderful stay. Peaceful and relaxing”
Reviewed January 2, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We arrived in time for the New Year celebrations at the end of 2015. The cottage was immaculately clean with a variety of fresh foods to be getting on with while we went shopping in Eymet for more supplies.
Our hosts 'Mike and Caroline' were charming and helpful.
I expected the cottage to be cold, but I was pleasantly surprised that it was warm and comfortable with all the facilities that I have at home. WiFi, a good phone signal, Sky, DVD player, washing machine, dishwasher and a very spacious lounge, also large bedrooms.
The scenery is outstanding, right in the middle of several vineyards, a very good variety of local wine is available.
You also have exclusive use of the pool should you need to have the pool.
This is an ideal location for people that want to just relax and "do your own thing".
The big question, would I return again?
Hell yes, in a heartbeat.
Do yourself a favor and book this place before it gets full.

Fantastic. Lovely. Brilliant. House spot on. Views great, especially from the pool as you swim towards the valley. Nice to stay somewhere where you could actually swim. Mike and Caroline were great hosts - and last but def., not least - the dogs were lovely to have around. We came home so relaxed and recharged. Thank you.
