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!
Wonderful place to relax!
Picherre truly is a superb property that proved to give us the absolute perfect, relaxing holiday that we wanted! We have stayed in seven different locations in France over the last eight years and we all had to agree that Picherre has now become our favourite!
The house is lovely, impeccably clean and very well equipped, but it is the outside that is really beautiful and so well maintained! Sitting on the balcony each morning while sipping coffee and listening to the birds all around was an absolute pleasure.
The pool is great, with lots of seating and space around it and we spent most of our days relaxing in the beautiful setting, while the kids played endlessly in the water. We used the BBQ most nights and enjoyed sitting out in the covered seating area. The access to the river is brilliant, being just at the bottom of the garden.We found it very easy to take our kayaks out, enjoying many hours of fun on the gentle river Lot.
We like to cycle and run and found some really good routes that were manageable for the whole family straight on the door step.
We really enjoyed the tour and wine tasting at Chateau La Gineste, kids included and bought several boxes to take home. A meal out at Le Caillau was a lovely evening and visiting Cahors and many of the lovely villages in the area filled up our days.
We would like to say a big thank you to Christian and his family for our wonderful stay at Picherre and also to Kevin and Sandra who gave us such a warm welcome and keep everything immaculate insuring that our holiday was outstanding.
Rachel, Howard, Jerry & Gracie.
Thank you Rachel & Howard for taking the time to write such a lovely review. We are really pleased that the major improvements we have made to the outside of the house in past couple of years have been such a hit this summer. You sound like you had a great time with your sporting activities. The roads and paths around Picherre are great to cycle, run or walk along as there is so little motor traffic. We are so glad that you had such a wonderful holiday and hope that you will come back and stay with us again. Thank you also for leaving the house so clean and tidy - Kevin and Sandra were ever so grateful.
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.
Thank you Laura for your fantastic review. It sounds that you a busy fortnight - I hope that you had time to relax! I'm glad that the Buffalo Grill was a hit. Your husband's catch is largest I have heard of from the many anglers that have stayed at Picherre. I'll post the picture on the website and see if anyone takes up the challenge.
A beautiful getaway.
We’ve just returned from a lovely week at this beautiful farmhouse. It was an idyllic setting on the banks of the river Lot. The property was immaculate on arrival and had everything we needed. We were blessed with good weather so spent much of the time by the pool or playing games in the shade of the sheltered eating area. We took our inflatable kayak onto the river and watched the kingfishers and buzzards. The supermarket was a 15 minute drive away and we cycled to Duravel each morning for fresh pastries. That was the extent of our explorations-we had everything we needed for a perfect week. We have stayed in many properties at home and abroad but this is the loveliest so far. I hope we will be able to return.
Thank you Caroline for your kind and informative review. As you have written, there is plenty to do in and around Picherre if you simply want to stay put and have a relaxing week. It would be great to see again at Picherre for another relaxing break.
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.
Thank you Ed for the great review. Yes, a lot of developments have taken place in the last three seasons that have further improved Picherre. There are even more enhancements planned for the future. I'm glad that you had such a good time - maybe the inflatable crocodile will have a mate the next time you visit!
