A wonderful piece of heaven!
This was our second time staying at the property and we were therefore desperately looking forward to our return knowing what to expect! It is beautifully maintained by the wonderful house managers, Kevin and Sandra who are really helpful should you require any advice.
Surrounded by stunning countryside and vineyards, the property is very private yet certainly not remote. How wonderful to cycle directly from the doorstep (on one of the several bicycles kindly provided for the use of guests) and be able to enjoy this lovely part of France, largely on little used roads and cycle tracks. I am definitely not a cyclist but really enjoyed it as the terrain was largely quite flat!! Although this beautiful stone house is set among the countryside, it is very private and close to the stunning river Lot (accessible directly from the property); yet it is also within walking distance of the village which provides a pizzeria, bakery, small convenience store etc. For more choice, there is also a huge supermarket along with many other amenities within a short 10-15 minute drive.
The kitchen is beautifully fitted with everything necessary along with dishwasher, microwave etc and the latest addition of a magnificent outside eating/stone BBQ area is quite simply spectacular! We spent the whole two weeks dreaming as we admired the beauty of the place. The pool is large and clean and enjoys an open vista of the surrounding fields. There is a selection of sun beds and also some much needed shade for when the sun is too strong.
There are three well equipped bathrooms, two lovely double bedrooms, two twin bedrooms, and a sofa bed so plenty of room for family and friends altogether. Wifi is provided for those who need it for work or play and many dvds are available to watch on the flat screen tv should the weather change. The large double height sitting room (with mezzanine level) is stunning and it provided wonderful acoustics for my husband while playing his classical guitar!
We have visited the Gouffre de Padirac caves, Chateau de Bonaguil and the Foie Gras museum to name a few places of interest, but there is so much more yet to see.
We highly recommend this beautiful house and will definitely return very soon. Thank you so much for letting us share this little piece of heaven, we will be back!
Thank you very much Lindsey for your lovely review. I'm glad that you had another wonderful time and I couldn't agree with you more on all that you have written. We are lucky to have Kevin & Sandra looking after Picherre and they do help everyone settle very quickly into their holiday. We have plans to develop more outside areas to enjoy the sun and views in this coming close season and would love to welcome you back so that you give your opinion on those next year!
A relaxing family holiday in a beautiful setting
We returned last week from spending the most fantastic two week family holiday at Picherre. My husband is a keen fisherman so her drove with his parents and fishing equipment, and took the Dover - Calais crossing. Myself, my mum and two children aged 4 & 6 decided to fly, even though Bergerac was a closer airport we found flights much cheaper to Limoges. We all arrived at Picherre on the Saturday evening, it was a lovely warm evening and the setting was just perfect. Surrounded by fruit trees, fields of corn, lavender and beautiful weeping willows. We found Picherre easy to find, we loved that it was safe and quiet. We spent most of our days lazing by the pool and exploring the local area. We were very lucky as we had two full weeks of sunshine, most days were 36 degrees, my husband liked to fish early in the morning until around mid day and sometimes in the evenings as he found it too hot in the afternoon. It was the first time he had river fished, and it did not disappoint, a highlight of the trip was a 100lb catfish! after wrestling it up to the top of the bank we got a few pictures before putting it back. We found the kitchen very well equipped and enjoyed to cook as well as eating out. We mainly shopped at Lidl, and E. Leclerc, both in Montayral. as well as Intermarche in the neary village of Puy-l Eveque. There is also a lovely restaurant in Puy-l-Eveque called Henry which we had two great meals. My daughter turned 6 during our trip and Christian recommended 'Buffalo Grill', it was really family friendly, great burgers, cocktails and mixed grills and lots of goodies for the children. During the end of our meal the waitress came out with a giant chocolate cake, and the restaurant sang Happy Birthday, she was so happy! We liked to visit the nearby village of Prayssac for coffees and a wander around, and also had a lovely day out in Cahors. The children liked to play on the park at Capfun. A must see during your stay is a visit to Chateau Gineste at the top of the road, the owner Gerard speaks great English and gave us a little tour with wine tasting, he even gave my daughter a bottle from her birth year to open when she is 18!! We were able to bring two boxes back to the UK. We celebrated our 10yr wedding anniversary during our stay, my husband cooked me a lovely lunch on the terrace and Christian even arranged to have a bottle of Champagne dropped off, which we found very thoughtful. A perfect end to a perfect holiday.
Large family house with quiet setting and superb outside space
We have now visited twice and since our first visit the house has been further improved around the pool and BBQ areas with lovely covered seating (complete with inflatable crocodile). In short, a perfect house for families or large groups which I would book again without hesitation. There is also a vineyard at the top of the drive who do excellent tastings.
A gem of a place in rural France
The photos don’t really do Picherre any justice. The moment you turn down the walnut tree lined track from Chateau Gineste you realise you’ve arrived somewhere rather special. It is indeed surrounded by vineyards and literally acres of space. A really characterful traditional building which I guess used to be a barn. Comfortably appointed with decent size kitchen and living area which made for easy living for our group of 10 - certainly plenty of space to chill out and play. Great pool and really well thought out areas to relax whether under the shaded area by the pool or bbqing in the pergola in the evening. Plenty of wildlife to enjoy too - we were treated to the songs of the buzzards(?) passing deer and the fish jumping in the river. Advice to anyone planning on going - Visit Chateau Gineste earlier in your holiday and stock up on the tremendous organic wine. Gerard brought wine making to life.
Activities. Hired road bikes from velodulot and had some great fun cycling the local roads upto Floressas, Luzech and Cahors. Also pleasant local tracks for running or gentle cycling by following gravel path round to Touzac. Castle Bonaguil a hit with the kids as were the caves of Padirac. Whilst it’s a bit of a drive, Rocamadour stunning at night. Kids also loved the high wire adventures of happy forest.fr, I’m still recovering. Great pictures at top of Col de Crayssac. Satnav a must. Personal highlight was the Wed market in Luzech, sat at the cafe drinking great coffee, sampling the delights of the Boulangerie and taking in the sights. Did some fishing at the bottom of the garden and caught barbel. No catfish but did see a 6ft+ monster glide pass! Vowed to return for this alone.
Duravel’s local bar exploded into life on a couple of occasions during our stay....a French World Cup qualifier and the celebrations for Bastille day on our last night. Who knew there were some many locals and all very hospitable.
Our time passed too quickly in this magical spot. Thanks to Kevin and Sandra for all their help.
Another Great Holiday at Picherre
We returned to Picherre for a second time after a fabulous holiday last year.
There has been plenty written about the property which accommodated our party of 10 with ease. The location is idyllic and we all quickly switch off from our busy lives back home to relax and enjoy the slower pace of life . Whether we were out cycling, visiting local villages, restaurants and vineyards, or relaxing by the pool and taking advantage of the extensive grounds , we all had a fabulous time and hope to be able to return to Picherre again soon
Charming Farmhouse in Scenic Setting
Spent a fantastic week in Picherre with my girlfriend and family. The delightful farmhouse is surrounded by stunning scenery for a truly all encompassing French experience.
It represented a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, offering privacy, great facilities and spectacular views over the surrounding vineyards. A really nice setting in which to drift away and relax.
As a bonus, the weather in late September was very pleasant with sunshine and temperatures in the high 20's for most of the week, allowing us to partake in a plethora of outdoor activities, using the equipment provided by the most generous of owners.
The property was immaculate on arrival and superbly maintained by the amicable and knowledgeable housekeepers, Kevin and Sandra.
I would highly recommend a visit if you're a family/group of friends looking to escape and enjoy the privacy, openness and beauty that Picherre has to offer.
Thank you for your lovely review Philip. I'm glad that you had such a good time and that the weather was that hot which often it is in late September. I'm glad you enjoyed the facilities as we want to ensure guests can feel totally at home in Picherre. I know Kevin & Sandra do their utmost to make that happen the moment you step through the door. Whenever you want to escape again from the "hustle and bustle of daily life" we would love to see you again at Picherre.
