We had the most wonderful holiday at Rob and Karen's beautiful property surrounded by some of the most spectacular views.
Our accommodation was delightful and we had access to a very well equipped games room and large swimming pool.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend Rob and Karen's property to anyone wishing to holiday in the area.
We cannot recommend " Le Banquet " highly enough.
Both the location and the quality of accommodation was superb.Suits all ages whether young or more mature ! Our grandchildren were never stuck for something to do. The swimming pool and games room were of the highest quality. While Ian and I enjoyed the stunning scenery and sampling the local food and wine !
Karen and Rob were so helpful and had thought of everything to make it a truly
memorable holiday for us all.

A very charming and peaceful base from which to explore the Dordogne
We had a very pleasant week's stay at Le Banquet, enjoying both the gite and its surrounds. It's wonderful to be able to sit next to a babbling brook with a nice cup of tea (not very French, I know), soaking in the evening sun after a day's exploring the local area. It's just down the road from one of the most important caves in the Dordogne, the Font de Gaume - you can walk there from the Gite; very popular though, you have to queue from 8:30am for tickets. Karen and Rob are very friendly and welcoming hosts and easy to talk to for information about the area. Les Eyzies is a nice little town with a good selection of restaurants as well as all the prehistoric museums and attractions. The Gite is well kitted out with pretty much everything you'd need and there is a games room for the kids. Any downside? I guess it's a bit far to walk into town, so you do need a car, but then how else do you get around the Dordogne?
Thanks you so much Doug for your very kind words, we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Le Banquet and hope to see you again someday. Karen & Rob
A fantastic place for a holiday
We had a fabulous week at La Banquet with our 2 children, 10 and 12. The gites are all lovely and really well equipped, even better than we expected from the website. Karen and Rob were great hosts - friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. The pool was lovely and a welcome relief in the heatwave during our first few days (the gite kept nice and cool too). There is so much to do in the local area (which is stunning) that we may have to come back as we only really scratched the surface - Lascaux caves, a day long canoe trip, Castelnaud, Sarlat and Domme all recommended. Great choice of restaurants in local village. All in all, a perfect place for a holiday. We plan to return!
A lovely 2 bedroom barn conversion by a tranquil river. Thoroughly enjoyed our 7 night stay. Karen and Rob, the owners, were always at hand to help and give advice on areas of interest to visit etc.. great hosts
We look forward to visiting again next season.

One of our best ever holidays!
It's hard to know what to say that hasn't already been said by others. I agree with everything that has been said about Karen & Rob being wonderful laid back but helpful hosts who care about their guests' enjoyment of their holiday. Le Tournesol was the perfect size for us and our 2 boys, 10 and 12, and being on the ground floor and in the shade, kept nice and cool, and the courtyard sitting area was lovely and private. If we wanted sun we simply had to walk round the other side of the building by the river where we had deckchairs and a small table at our disposal (this became my perfect little quiet spot each day to catch the last of the evening sun and read a book, wine in hand, or watch the dragon flies and butterflies on the riverbank.) Or of course we could go to the pool which had plenty of sun loungers (no having to put your towels down to save one!) and was planted around the edges with beautiful lavender which apart from giving the air a wonderful smell did a fab job of keeping any bees occupied and away from sunbathers! The grounds are beautiful, just perfect, I loved being so close to the little river, it was so relaxing! The games room kept our boys occupied too and was really well equipped - we had brought a cricket set and a travel box of Cluedo with us for example, but they were already there in the games room. Darts, pool, table tennis, giant connect 4, jenga, boules, croquet, badminton, many box games - they were all available, as were many DVDs. The location is perfect- despite being on the road to Les Eyzies, we weren't disturbed by traffic noise, and we found it more convenient than being at the end of a long bumpy track full of potholes in the middle of nowhere (something which we've experienced in the past in rural holiday cottages!). A small supermarket/petrol station is a couple of mins drive away, and it it's possible to walk into Les Eyzies if you want to have a drink and leave the car behind. Restaurants are very nice with lovely staff and reasonable prices. Very central to all the many tourist attractions in the region, which we enjoyed: Chateau Castelnaud, aquarium, prehistoric maze, crazy golf, caves of Cazelles, prehistory museum, canoeing. But there is still lots to see so we will be back! I wholeheartedly recommend Le Banquet to everyone, especially those with children. And if you've never been to the Dordogne before like we hadn't, what are you waiting for? Just go - it's absolutely beautiful.
