La Petite Maison was well appointed, clean and tidy with all the facilities required for a comfortable, relaxing stay. The house itself has been beautifully restored, retaining many original features. Set within a courtyard layout, the pool is positioned to the rear of the buildings, which was large and complete with diving board which for our teenage children provided hours of fun. The location has the benefit of being just a short walk to the...

Our family enjoyed every minute of our stay. Just walking distance from the picturesque market village of Excideuil and a short drive from popular chateaus, gardens, trails, boating, and caves, the location is perfect! There's so much to do, but you may feel drawn to spend all your time lounging in the beautiful garden or by the pool. Tabary is especially magical in the early evening hours when everything seems golden! La Petite Maison had...

My wife and I (along with our venerable Beagle) had the privilege of staying in Petite Maison for six months this last winter. We loved the location, only a short walk to Excideuil past the chateau and with supermarkets also walking distance. Lots of great walking trails in the area too. The house itself had everything we could need, was lovely and spacious and full of character. Best of all were our lovely hosts, Richard...

Great location. Richard and Luisa were charming hosts and, despite a roof-ripping hailstorm before we arrived, they had everything repaired and serviceable for our arrival. Superb pool and lovely cottage. Easy to get to Rouffiac (20 min:quiet and immaculate lakeside beach); Brantome (40min: beautiful 'island' town with historical abbey); Hautefort (15 min:castle); and Pompadour (45 min: castle, horse-racing and show-jumping). Only thing stopping five stars was an uncomfortable double bed (fitted sheet & protector too...

Management response:

Thanks for a kind and helpful review. We are so sorry about the inadequate kitchen equipment - it was because of the hail storm that two gites equipment got muddled and lack of time during the changeover meant it was not checked. The moral is: always tell us if something is not right so we can correct any errors.

This is a great place to stay for a month during the summer in France. There are plenty activities within reasonable driving distances that suit a range of tastes and many at little or no cost. The countryside is very pretty and there are any amount of walks through fields, forest and villages which are on well marked routes that begin from the gate or are only short distances away by car. The nearby village...
