La campagne en périgord vert
Nous avons vécu deux semaines de repos. La piscine était toujours très chaude et sécurisée pour nos deux enfants.
La maison est parfaitement équipée. On peut trouver tout ce qu'il faut pour cuisiner, pour s'amuser (badminton, jeux de société, dvd, livres "en anglais") et se reposer...
Nous avons notre fille qui est en fauteuil roulant, la maison est en grande partie accessible grâce à la bienveillance de Helen et James qui ont aménagé une rampe à l'intérieur de la maison. Cependant Il faut prévoir une rampe pour passer de l'allée en gravier à la terrasse en béton (petite marche de 5cm).
Helen et James sont très accueillants et toujours disponibles. Les rencontrer et passer du temps avec eux reste un excellent souvenir de vacances.
Nous vous conseillons "la petite maison" si vous souhaitez des vacances au calme dans un environnement plein de charme, mais également dynamique avec la piscine et le terrain de badminton tout à disposition.
Wonderful cottage in beautiful grounds
We had a wonderful week at les Petite Côtes. A lovely cottage set in a beautiful garden surrounded by picturesque countryside. Helen and James are lovely hosts who made us feel very welcome and we look forward to seeing them again when we return to the area. We would highly recommend the property to families looking for a cosy base with a lovely pool and plenty of facilities to entertain the whole family. Close to Verteillac.
Thank you so much for that lovely review - much appreciated - truly a real pleasure having guests like you. The LPM was left immaculate and your boys are to die for........!! So charming and polite.
A family friendly, well kept and stocked secluded gem, with stunning grounds and a great pool
We cannot recommend LPM highly enough, Helen and James were very welcoming and discrete. We had a relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable couple of weeks making the most of the secluded quiet of this lovely house, excellent pool, extensive grounds and beautiful surrounding areas. For a family of 4 with two pre-teen girls LMP was ideal with enough space for us all to enjoy and a pool that was warm. There was a well equipped games room for wet days and we loved the all weather badminton court in the cooler evenings. The local facilities were good with an excellent bakery. The canoeing and high ropes were a real success and we were not disappointed when we ate out, not that we did too much as we just enjoyed meals under the canopy of the vine on the veranda of LPM.
Thank you so much for such an encouraging review which we both appreciated. It was a pleasure having such a lovely family staying in LPM and thank you for leaving it all so spick and span when you left and do tell the girls that their pop-up French flag is still propped up on our sideboard and that the letters especially the 'E' are holding tight!
Beautiful property and a lovely warm welcome
Petites Cotes was perfect for our needs. Our teenage boys loved the heated pool, games room and badminton court. Our dog loved the grounds and the lovely walks in the area. The house has everything you could wish for included in the price and everything was clean and tidy on our arrival with a lovely welcome pack waiting for us.
Verteillac is only 10 minutes away and has some lovely little shops and the local area has excellent markets also. One of the best restaurants we found was Le Cours de Miracles in Verteillac which has beautiful food at a very reasonable price.
We received a really warm welcome from Helen and James, who live next door. They were always on hand if we needed anything, but very discreet also and gave us total privacy.
We would definitely recommend this lovely
gite and hopefully we will be returning again.
Thankyou Helen and James for a wonderful holiday in a beautiful setting.
Gary and Claire
Thank you for sending in such a lovely a review which was most flattering and made us both 'purr'! It was fun having you staying in LPM and the boys were delightful, also well mannered and respectful. Thank you as well for giving us permission to sneak off to Bordeaux for the weekend whilst you 'held the fort' and watered our cuttings.
Outstanding and very well equipped, clean and we were spoilt with so much to do.
We had the most wonderful time, there was so much to do at the property and in the surrounding area, our girls loved spending as much time as possible in the large pool. We spent many a pleasant evening barbecuing and playing Boules. Helen and James were the most accommodating hosts and were always on hand to give us advice on places to visit and the best restaurants in the local area.
We shall be returning again one day as we have definitely found a little gem here.
Firstly let me say the lovely photos on here do not do this place justice - it is so beautiful - it really does need to be seen to be believed!
Our party ranged from aged 10 years to 75, and we rented both Le Petite Maison (perfectly spacious for myself, husband, two boys and our eldest son and his girlfriend) and Le Pigeonnaire (for my in-laws to have their own space when required) - well, what a perfect set up!
This was our most relaxing holiday to date, offering us everything we had hoped for and so much more.
On our first night Helen had reserved a table for us at Fleur d'Eau (also recommended), but after that we really enjoyed family meals together at the many locations (depending on if you wanted sun or shade) in Le Petite Cotes - the children particularly enjoyed a bbq followed by a game of boules.
There is so much to do on site (and we didn't do all of it as we never got out on the bikes) that even though there is plenty to see in nearby areas we often chose to stay put.
It was a pleasure to meet James and Helen whom are just lovely and I think add to the magic of the place - they were so helpful - they would recommend places to visit / local events that we wouldn't of known about otherwise and I felt really went above and beyond! Despite always being on hand if needed it's like my son said, "It's like we're in our own world here, I love it"!!
Our eldest likened the pool area to something that Ronaldo would have!
Precious memories were made - thank you James and Helen and we hope to see you again next year.
I cannot recommend this property enough!
What a lovely review - thank you so much - we felt quite choked reading it! We thoroughly enjoyed meeting you all - model guests and an excellent decision to stay in both La Petite Maison and Le Pigeonnier. Thank you for the aperos - much appreciated - we look forward to seeing you all again at Petites Cotes. Warmest wishes xx
