“Petite but perfect”
Reviewed September 29, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We found La Petite Maison to be pristine and very well kitted out. We had everything we needed for a restful stay. There was plenty of room for 2 of us and the beautiful weather enabled us to make full use of the superb pool and garden. Liz and Rob were most helpful and hospitable and their attention to detail was much appreciated. We stayed for 4 nights but would have been happy to spend longer.

Thank you for your review and helpful comments.

We were extremely disappointed at your comment regarding the mattresses as they are very high quality, pocket sprung and have only been used for the three summer seasons that we have been letting the cottage. We also ensure that they are covered with both waterproof under-sheets and quilted mattress covers to ensure they remain clean and hygienic.

Perhaps the fact that they are mounted on sprung steel frames rather than divans affected your assessment.

“"La petite maison" is a real gem.”

person found this review helpful

We had a very relaxing holiday in "la petite maison" in the beautiful Dordogne countryside. The accommodation is extremely well equipped and comfortable. The extensive grounds are stunning, well maintained, peaceful and full of wildlife. The large and very clean pool was amazing and much appreciated, especially after a day's sight-seeing. The unobtrusive owners, Rob and Liz, were most welcoming, extremely helpful, considerate and knowledgeable about the local area. We felt very much at home there and we would love to return.

Thank you for your kind comments. We try to keep the garden as wildlife-friendly as we can and at times parts of it can appear untended especially the wild-flower meadows at the end of their season; so it was nice to see you felt the grounds are well maintained. As you know, the pool is our joy and we always try to keep it as pleasant as possible for our guests as well as ourselves.
We would be very pleased to welcome you again.

“A lovely cottage with great hosts.”

The cottage is 10 minutes outside of Bergerac, in a lovely quiet setting.
Rob and Liz were incredibly helpful, the pool was very warm even late in the season!
They were kind enough to recommend some lovely restaurnts in Bergerac, overall a great place to stay!

We were pleased to see that you enjoyed the pool early morning on your last day. We are still making the most of it now in mid-October, but it's a little chilly!. Thank you for your kind review.
