Le gite est super bien equipe et très agreable a vivre. La piscine est TOP ! Encore merci pour votre gentillesse et bientôt surement.

Très beau gite bien equipe. Le jardin est aussi très beau et que dire de la piscine ! Nous avons été charmes par le cadre, un peu a l’ecart de tout civilisation mais nous permettant toutefois de belles visites aux alentours. Nous reviendrons avec plaisir.

We had a great time staying here whilst house hunting. The hosts were all brilliant and really helpful. Our dogs had a great time too and were spoilt rotten. The facilities are great and we had everything we needed and more.

J’ai adore. Un grand merci a la famille Nott. Nous avons passe de très bons moments dans ce si bel endroit ! Le site est très bien equipe. Passez un tres bel été !

Sejour très agreable – Ce gite est parfait pour se reposer et profiter de la nature et de la piscine. Bonne continuation.

Merci pour votre accueil. L’endroit est agreable et reposant. La piscine permet de se rafraichir pendent les chaudes journées. Merci et a bientôt.

Thank you for a very relaxing holiday, beautiful location and well equipped gite. We all loved the swimming pool. Thank you for another wonderful relaxing time at La roche chabrelle, Everyone loved the pool and we had a fabulous meal at “MOULIN DU PONT” in Lisle.

Merci pour ces 2 semaines simples et relaxants! L’occasion pour nous de découvrir le departement et d’entamer des projets retraite par ici, a condition que les anglais nous laissent un petit coint. Et oui ca a fait partie du charme des vacances, se croire dans un petit coin d’Angleterre !! Pour la retraite on a le temps.

Thank you for another fabulous stay! Once again we have met lovely people here. We loved Canoeing from Brantome to Bourdeilles and felt we had earned our pizza that night at La Cabanon (which was fabulous). Enjoyed a daytrip to Hautefort. Loved going into Brantome to watch the water jousting. This trip we have especially loved being by the pool and chatting to the lovely families who we have been here with. Hope to return.

Thank you for a really nice holiday. We enjoyed our 10 days in Gite hirondelle. We have visited some nice villages like Brantome and Saint-Emillion. The weather was excellent and we were able to have all our meals outside. We will surely return.

Thanks for your welcome ad your disponibility and discretion. Buse is the perfect cottage to live unforgettable moments with children and in the future, with little children. The swimming pool is a perfect place for beautiful meeting with other positive families.

We have had another fantastic week here. We have had a great time in the pool and the cave and it has been relaxing and good fun. Thank you for making it a welcoming place for a holiday.

Merci pour votre accueil et votre gentillesse. Super sejour et surtout très reposant. La grote était super bien et le babyfoot ! La piscine était très bien et grande pour nager ! Vous avec été très gentil lors de la panne d’eau et vous nous avez toujours parlez avec la sourire !

A very restful 11 nights. Hirondelle has been perfect for a family of 4. All the facilities that you could need have been provided. It has been lovely for the children to meet others around the pool. The cave has been a cool respite from the heat.

Un sejour agreable, resposant et ensoleille ! LA magnifique piscine a ravit petit et grand. Les installations dans la grotte sont ideale ! Le kit d’accueil est appreciable et très delicat. La maison spacieuse merite juste des volets pour evite que les enfants nous réveil des le lever du jour. Et que les parents dorment un peu plus. Un Grand merci pour votre générosité et vos sourires.

Gite vraiment super sympa – accueil chaleureuse avec le sourire. Maison fraiche malgré la canicule. Vous avez un cadre de vie ideal – Kit d’accueil super sympa ! Nous reviendrons sans aucun doute.

Spent a lovely 2 weeks here in the quiet countryside. Perfect for our family of 5 we used the swimming pool everyday and the weather was perfect. Lots of places to visit and explore (Perigueux is a great city) near and further afield. Good facilities and everything we needed for a young family.

Sejour agréable. Tres belle piscine. La rencontre avec une famille britannique et l’autre hollondaise a permis aux enfants de partager jeux et piscine. Propriétaires serviables et sympathiques.

A delightful gite in which to celebrate my 60th birthday with my family. The gite has everything you could need. The pool was a great success + the dogs loved it.

Thank you! We had a wonderful two weeks with our 3 kids here. House pool and terrain are perfect. We had a few nice BBQ’s and we even saw a deer.

A wonderful holiday thank you, everything we needed was in the gite in beautiful surroundings and amazing views, close to great villages with loads for the children to see and do.

Un lieu ideal pour décompresser ! Nous avons partager des moments privilegies avec les enfants dans cet ecran de verdure apaisant. Des promenades et itineraires VTT au pied de la porte des activités sportives a pratiquer sur place ou a découvrir a proximité. Mais l’essential est au gite authentique et fonctionnel avec la piscine fabuleuse a quelque metres. Parfait discrecession des hôtes. Merci pour le sejour.

Thank you for a brilliant holiday, the gite and pool are fabulous. We’ve had a truly wonderful relaxing time and have loved exploring the local area, especially the beach/river at Lisle and pizzas at Crayssac! Very Peaceful and lovely atmosphere.

As usual, enjoyed the peace and quiet of the Perigord countryside. A kind farmer on one of our walks even let us pick some figs from his trees, Delicious! We enjoyed the Bergerac wines. Very much enjoyed our Sunday lunch at Brantome.

Wonderful hosts – No matter what we requested Charlie always manages to come up trumps. Had a wonderful restful 2 weeks in a delightful and peaceful place. After so many years of so many memories it still continues to calm and impress. Many thanks for so many happy memories.

Thank you for a lovely relaxing holiday. Fabulous location and all 'mod cons' too! We have visited many places in the local area and even swum in the pool. The gîte was lovely, but rather cold in the evening. Would certainly recommend coming here.

Well equipped gite in lovely setting. Ideal for a relaxing holiday or as a base for exploring the area. We visited Riberac, the Chateau of Bourdeilles and Brantôme. Plenty of restaurants cafes etc in the area to choose from. Evenings have been a bit cold but we lit the fire and so were warm and cosy.

We have had a relaxing week in Papillon in these beautiful surroundings. Many thanks to Charlie and Pam for the loan of bikes and access to the vegetable patch. It's been great to have Radio 4 on tap and to be able to catch up on the news on TV - and excellent Wi-Fi

This was our first summer holiday together in France and we were so lucky to have found your gîte to stay in. What a wonderful surrounding and fantastic views. We couldn't have asked for anything more. What a lovely surprise to arrive to a welcome pack with all the essentials included. Thanks for all your help, including providing recommendations for a vet which was really appreciated. Wishing Pam Charlie and their sons all the best for the future and we will be sure to recommend you wherever we go.

We are back once again for our 15th year, and each time there are more improvements. This time it was improved Wi-Fi and better TV. We even managed to watch the Last Night of the Proms. We love the countryside around here - though the black heads of the sunflowers never cease to amaze us after the huge yellow flowers of summer. The wonderful array of fruit is another bonus of this time of year. Pam and Charlie are wonderful hosts, they seem to provide everything from advice on computers to arranging nurses visits.

Thank you so much for letting us stay in Papillon. You and Pam have everything just right. This is the best gite we have ever stayed in. Thank you for letting us bring our dog Pippy to stay in a garden that is very safe and secure. It meant we could relax on our first ever trip with a dog to France. You have a wonderful place. Hopefully will be returning very soon.

Thanks for a fab holiday retreat...ZZZ Peace, quiet and tranquillity. Great host and hostess. Enjoyed finding out about the French customs and waking up to a beautiful view each morning.

Une jolie Parenthese dans un tres joli cadre, coupe de tout! Un grand merci pour l'accueil.

A lovely quiet week here, visiting friends, relaxing by the pool and taking it easy.

We've had a lovely couple of weeks, canoeing, high ropes, swimming a tiny bit of culture and shopping in Perigueux.

As ever Charlie and Pam get it just right. We love this place and are always sad to leave. I'm just feasting my eyes on one last look at the beautiful view.

Beautiful setting - what amazing stars! lovely swimming pool and really well equipped gite - nothing lacking. We had and amazing canoeing trip and cannot thank Charlie and Pam enough for their help and support when we needed it. Maybe we'll come back one day.

We've had a fantastic two weeks, thank you!. We all loved the pool and the location. We've enjoyed trips to Brantome for canoeing trips and recommend the Velo Rail. The gîte is great, well equipped. would definately recommend the gite and lovely hosts

What a lovely stay we have had. Thank you to all at La Roche Chabrelle for making our stay pleasurable.

Charlie you said when we turned up "You'll be happy here". You was right!!

Thank you for a realy lovely week. Great to spend time somewhere so beautiful and relaxing. Did some lovely runs past fields of sunflowers! Thanks for your hospitality.

Thank you Pam and Charlie. It was fantastic for our family to meet you and to discover your region which is incredible. Above all, thank you for your kindness and your hospitality. J'ai adore ces vacances...la piscine, les colocataires. Charlie, Pam..c'est super.

Une grande maison dans un bel endroit. Thanks for staying here

A lovely place for lovely and quiet holidays. a beautiful landscape and please keep the BabyFoot safe! Lots of fun for all the family.

Gîte tres bien amenage, il ne manque rien, proprietaires tres sympathiques. Les enfants ont apprecie la piscine et les jeux a disposition. Seul bemol la TV en anglais seulement. Nous avons tout de meme passe 15 jours tres agreablement et au calme. Merci: A bientot peut-etre.

Thank you Charlie and Pam for being fantastic hosts in our hour of need (!!) Loved the gite, difficult to get the boys out of the swimming pool. St Astier - fantastic,  Brantome - for canoeing, St Christophe - must see. Will look you up when we are in this part of the world again. Many thanks.

We had a nice week, lots of relaxing and swimming and visiting nice towns, beautiful churches and abbeys and had lovely evening at gourmet markets. Thanks for the lovely stay.

It was a joyous reunion. so good to see you all. As always lovely accommodation and the French countryside is breathtaking.

Fantastic place, glorious holiday, spectacular views, peaceful surroundings. We have met lots of great people and had lovely days exploring the local area and a little further afield. Our children have made new friends and enjoyed the pool and 'the cave', thank you for sharing this lovely spot. we very much hope to be back.

Beautiful place, love the view! Pool is gorgeous and fantastically warm. The kids had a great time, especially in the cave - what a great place! We'll be back.

Had a lovely time - great for the extended family. The baby loved the pool by the end! Beautiful area and it was good to get away from the crowds.

We had a fantastic relaxing week and were very comfortable in Papillon. Pip and Meg our four legged friends had some wonderful walks in the local woods and we enjoyed exploring the beautiful towns and villages. Many thanks.

We had a lovely stay for 2 weeks, Pam and Charles were great hosts. We celebrated our 30th anniversary here and Charles supplied a superb bottle of wine. The time with our families around the pool and with the evening barbeques were fantastic. Big heart and a beautiful mine of information Charles and we felt very welcome which of course is so important. There is a woman's touch Pam about the place and everything is well thought out. Thank you so much.

Brilliant stay in a wonderful place. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks to Charlie and Pam for the gems of local knowledge.

Everything possible has already been said. Charlie and Pam are wonderful hosts. You only have to ask and they will do their utmost to provide it. We have been coming since they first moved in and still it continues to improve. We don't believe they can organise the weather too, but this year we have had 2 weeks of continuous sunshine! Many thanks to you both for all your kindness.

Enjoyed 2 hot weeks here this time. So got up early (ish) to do some favourite walks then came back to cool of in the pool.8th time here but we are already planning what we will do next year...     try new BBQ perhaps go to Sorges again, Bordeaux on the train from St Astier more trips on a gabare but best of all just relaxing. Thanks to Pam and Charlie for all your suggestions. Le Moulin du Pont at Lisle was a great success.

We have really enjoyed exploring the beautiful countryside (following the intriguing routes our Sat Nav produced!) Had some delicious meals out, kids loved the high ropes in Eglise-Neuve de Vergt and enjoyed shopping in Perigueux. Loved your pool too! Thank you Pam and Charlie for your red wine and all your help and hospitality.

Fantastic holiday, so relaxing and the hosts have been great. We have loved exploring the beautiful area, and equally relaxing in the gîte and by the pool. Lovely friendly guests. Perfect for the kids and our dogs who had freedom with the enclosed garden.

One of our best ever holidays. Fabulous friendly hospitality from Charlie and Pam. Have loved the pool, badminton, cave, even went for a jog/walk around the local countryside. Loved the social friendly atmosphere with the other families. Thank you.

A fantastic, relaxing family holiday. Great gîte, great surroundings, great pool - we loved it. Also made even more wonderful with lovely families in the other gîtes. Thank you famille Nott! (BTW loved the Triumph Stag)

Yet another fabulous holiday at La Roche Chabrelle. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality and not least for the wine! We will be back next year for 3 weeks. We can't wait.

A beautiful spot - great for a holiday with large groups. Lovely heated pool and play areas - very hospitable hosts. This is a favourite part of the Dordogne as not to touristy and beautiful villages.

Charlie and Pam have been fantastic hosts- no task they couldn't deal with - car repair/vet advice, all sorted. Gîte great with hot water supply that dealt with three girls without problem. Highlights locally at restaurant Moulin du Pont and Lisle swimming area.

Thanks to both of you for your warm welcome and your very calm Papillon place. Very nice stay and great week with a nice hot and quiet swimming pool. I'll recommend you with pleasure. Pam and Charly: 2 personnes discretes, efficaces et super sympas! Nous avons passé un bon séjour. Nous vous recommenderons.

Super Piscine! Et paysage incroyable....Merci. Environment exceptionnel et accueil sympathetique - Tres bons moments en famille a La Buse. Merci Pam et Charlie

Lovely stay and great week in Hirondelle, kids love the pool and cave. Sean enjoyed cricket with Daniel at St Aulaye and the beach/cafe/and high ropes course there was a real highlight. Thanks to Charlie and Pam for your help and hospitality.

Sejour tres sympa a La Roche Chabrelle. Le Papillon est tres agréable, la piscine magique et nos hotes tres tres agréables. Mention tres bien a l'equipement, kit d'accueil, BBQ , jardin et a la piscine bien sur. Thanks a lot.

After a big debate with the boys over what was the absolute best thing about this holiday gîte we agreed that the single best thing is ......the pool, the cave, the table football, the football pitch, badminton, cycling, walking the woods, eating tea outside, the view and lying in the grass looking up at the stars. A close second place after much support from mum was the washing machine, but the boys refused to second that! The gîte is perfect, clean practical and just perfect. Our holiday has been trouble free and fun. Thank you.

We had a wonderfully relaxing week. We loved the open space for the kids to run around, the weather was fantastic, the gîte and pool provided a chance to cool off. Pam and Charlie were attentive, knowledgeable and showed the care of an onsite landlord. Thanks for a great time!

Thank you for having us! We had a lovely, relaxing holiday. The boys especially enjoyed the lovely pool. Great cycling and super meals out at Le Cabanon and Le Moulin du Pont.

Accueil tres chaleureus! Agréable séjours avec des proprietaires aux petits soin. Merci pour tout! C'est une adresse que nous garderons pour le futur. xxx

Another fantastic week in Papillon, cooling down in the pool, lots of sightseeing, churched carved into the rock at Aubeterre, river jousting in Brantôme, canoeing, many lovely meals in Brantome and Bourdeilles.

Super semaine a la Roche Chabrelle. Tres bien endroit au sein de la nature. Accueil tres agréable. Kit de bienvenue tres apprécié, merci. Maison tres bien équipé.

Thank you for everything! It has been peaceful and serene. Our Granddaughter loved the pool. The views from hibou are beautiful. Thank you for letting us bring the cats. They have enjoyed their taste of freedom. We love the area. We will be back.

Our 8th visit here! Absolutely love this place.. The peace and quiet, excellent for our dog as well. Unfortunately we had to leave a day early. Charlie and Pam we will be back.

Another fantastic holiday. Gîte as always well equipped and immaculate. 7th year of visiting- think that says it all. Thank you as always.

A really lovely, quiet holiday in this glorious countryside. The gîte (Buse) is excellent - so well and thoughtfully equipped. Charlie is the perfect proprietor - always there when you need him, never when you don't. Thank you.

As always we have enjoyed the peace of Papillon. Noticed a lot of improvements, new oven, new large fridge and freezer. 1st week swimming week, 2nd week did more walking and exploring. Good place to have enjoyed our Golden Wedding ongoing celebrations. Thanks Pam and Charlie, good to catch up with your news.

Once again we are back at Chabrelle - we love the peace and quiet of this lovely situation. Pam and Charlie are such wonderful hosts. Charlie has been particularly helpful this year after Andrew's battery went dead on us. lending us a car to a )shop and b) to collect our own car from the garage.

A lovely place to stay. Rivers to swim in and explore. Great food to eat all around and such well kept villages - need more time!!! Thank you for a perfect week.

We'll all go home relaxed after our week at La Roche Chabrelle. We loved our morning runs spotting " Bambi "! Trips canoeing at Brantôme and swimming in the lake at La Jemaye. Charlie and Pam couldn't do enough for us - perfect.

What a fabulous spot Pam and Charlie. Great space, scenery, pool and hosts. We've had a brilliant time exploring this region and especially enjoyed our canoe experience and the towns of Bourdeilles and Brantôme. See you again!

Another fantastic 3 weeks, A great place to relax and enjoy being together as a family. Found lots more places to explore in this region of France. Children enjoyed the 3 weeks and especially visiting the Brantôme police horses.

Ce fut un séjour tres agréables et reposant dans ce gîte ou les proprietaires sont tres accueillants et discrets. Un Perigord Vert "Authentique" que l'on aime tant !! Un super séjour, beau temps, belles ballades et une promenade dans la plus belle Stag jamais vue. Merci.

Thank you so much for a wonderful relaxing and enjoyable and stress free 2 weeks in Hirondelle. The kids had a great time exploring the cave and had a ball in the pool (as did we). Met some lovely families and enjoyed the evening get togethers! Hopefully we will meet again on another trip to France.

Many thanks from us all. We've loved staying in Buse and enjoyed the pool, walks and the variety of fun things for the kids to do. We would love to return again one day. Thanks also for for helpful suggestions on what to do on a rainy day and staying calm in the face of a wee visit to the hospital. It all worked out in the end and Connor got a badge for his trouble. Lovely place to relax and meet like minded families. They all have some lovely memories to take home. See you again one day.

We had a lovely week in Hibou. The view is fantastic and I struggled to extract the kids from the pool. Charlie and Pam have been great,  especially bringing in all our washing when a thunderstorm came over when we were out. A beautiful area.

Thank you for an amazing 2 weeks at Hirondelle. Our 4 children have had so much fun exploring. It's so nice to allow them to have some freedom and knowing they are safe. The gîte had everything we needed and more. The pool was a big hit especially during the very hot days! The views are so beautiful and the surrounding towns especially Brantôme. The river beach and High-wire Arbre park was a brilliant day out. Thanks to Charlie and Pam for your hospitality. We would love to come back again.

A really fabulous holiday and wonderful for our kids to be able to wander around so safely. They had the most amazing time exploring. The view from Hibou made this perfect for us.

Thanks for a great week, impressed to have the place to ourselves. We've loved the pool, table football and ping pong and the local VTT mountain bike routes are fantastic.

Fantastic gite (Papillon) well equipped, lovely pool, amazing scenery and wildlife (Buzzards!) Weather too hot though! Hopefully when we return it will be a few degrees cooler!

Thank you for a very enjoyable and relaxing 9 days here in Hibou. We arrived exhausted after a trip to Disneyland and Paris and leave fully recharged. Lots of fun had in the pool and cave.

We have had a wonderful time here. Visiting the beautiful villages and castles and enjoying the fantastic weather in the swimming pool. Thank you for your hospitality, our first lesson in "the art of BBQ" and the fantastic drive in the old Triumph! It was an unforgettable experience being here with our little children.

Pam and Charlie, we have had a great holiday the 2 weeks in Buse. You are fine hosts. Thanks a lot for your hospitality! It was our first time in Perigord Vert.A region to come back to, a marvellous environment with sunflowers, woods, foxes, deers and capus(?) Beautiful villages with Roman churches and chapels. Brantome and Bourdeilles, Chateau Puyguilhem and the caves of Villars were splendid. These 2 weeks will be unforgetable not at least through your thoughtful hospitality.

Great well equipped gite with super hosts. Pame and Charlie are tremendous hosts , attentive but unobtrusive.

Best hospitality ever! Thank you for the courgette and the car support. Loved the quietness and tranquillity with a pool thrown in. What bliss. The nature walks, brooks, rivers and close proximity to villages with great coffee make it an ideal location to escape from it all.

Enjoyed the peace. Very relaxing even with a 1yr and 4yr old. Loved the gite. Charlie and Pam were warm and attentive. Brantome is the jewel in the crown. Weather was kind, red wine, cheese and french bread consumed. Anything better?

Three weeks here is much better than two!  Stayed several times before and everything is as good as ever.  Lovely weather, refreshing pool and enjoyed following yellow waymarked trails.  A few French lunches 2 or 3 hours long!  Had a night away in Sarlat area but good to come back.  Most of all thanks to Pam and Charlie for hospitality.  Thanks too for your suggestion of joining the Grande Balade - walking and eating - two of our favourite occupations. 

Another year of happy memories - glorious continuous sunshine and idyllic surroundings in this tranquil location.  As always a restful and relaxing break from the norm.   Much enjoyment was had and hopefully we will return again next year. 

Thank you for a lovely, albeit brief, stay in Hibou.  We came for a wedding so that meant less time enjoying the pool and the surroundings but we've had a great stay all round.

What a view!  Today's sunrise was spectacular.  The pool was a godsend.  Our lovely grandson learned to swim whilst here. 

 

 

We've had a fabulous time here.  Perfect for relaxation with a young family.  We've all loved exploring the the wildlife.  The pool has been a great hit with the kids and also the adults of course.  The best part for us has been the opportunity to let the kids roam around freely with their new found friends in complete safety.  THe local flora and fauna have been "well looked after" with snail houses being erected and tended and moths "saved" from the confines of the house.  THanks for sharing this beautiful part of the world with us.   

I had so much fun here I wish I could stay for an extra week.  The pool and the cave were amazing and I had a great time here and made good friends.  I love the donkeys the horses and the bunnies.  The cave and the pool were amazing and I love Bramble.  

We had a brilliant fortnight here.  Perfect for a big family with lots of young children.  Safe and peaceful with lots to do.  Swimming was a massive hit as well as the badminton, swings and cave and of course the donkeys, horses and Bramble.  Thanks so much Charlie Pam and family for your welcome and for being so flexible and patient with us. 

What a beautiful place, we all had a wonderful week.  Molly and Daniel made some wonderful friends.  Another week would have been ideal we don't want to leave.  We've visited some lovely places.  St Emillion especially gets our vote.  You may just see us again!  P.S.  Pool was " tres bien" and star gazing was amazing xxx

We had a great 2 weeks kids loved the pool and the cave.  We loved the St Victor restaurant and the great places to visit.

A very pleasant relaxing week - kids enjoyed the pool and the other kids - everything felt very easy and comfortable - with lots of nice places to visit.  We thought Brantome and Bourdeilles were both beautiful - could easily have stayed another week and hope to be back

Thank you for such a welcome and a truly peaceful place to spend a week - it's been lovely and so many places to explore, on and off site.  

Un lieu de sejour tres agreable  Une vrai piscine chauffee dans un centre verdoyant splindide.  Gite tres bon equippe.  Merci pour l'acceuil

What a lovely relaxing peaceful week we've had!  The kids have enjoyed the pool, the swings and the cave.  Beautiful villages nearby and great places to eat.  Not too far away from a supermarket when running low on supplies.  Pam and Charlie are exceptional hosts.  There if you need them for anything (wine, aloe vera!)  Hope to visit again.

We have all had a great holiday cycling, swimming, playing table tennis and badminton and survived  2 weeks without a car after Charlie helped us stock up at the Intermarche.  A great place to come back to after a long day in the bike saddle for a relaxing dip in the lovely pool. 

A lovely family reunion and a lovely stay.  Thanks!

Thank you for this lovely holiday it was a very pleasant place!  Great holiday and great time with family.

Our 3rd visit the gite and pool are as good as every.  Lovely countryside. Our 3rd visit here most interesting to see the development of the ecological policy.  Abundant wildlife to see and enjoy.  Thank you again. 

We've had a wonderful 2 weeks here in your very well equipped and very much appreciated the great swimming pool and the perfectly situated trees for our hammock!  We loved the badminton, table tennis and table football!  Many thanks for a lovely holiday.

We have spent several holidays in the Dordogne throughout the years this has been a very relaxing, peaceful and suprising place to stay.  Superb pool, nice guests to kill the time with, lots of activities and places with 1 hour drive to visit.  Highly recommendable!

Thank you for a very relaxing stay in this beautiful region of France.  The gite was very comfortable and we've had a super holiday.  

Superb, magnificent, marvellous, wonderful, outstanding - I could list more and still not do do this gite justice.  Charlie and Pam many many thanks for a week and your gite and the fantastic facilities.  Everything you could think of is here and things you couldn't think of are also here. Relaxation in  an idyllic part of France yet close to wonderful towns and cities.  Great base for a holiday.   Garden was brilliant for Beth too, she had freedom to run around and get lots of exercise whilst the rest of us appreciated the sunshine beautiful flora and fauna.  This was our first visit but hope to be back and to encourage rest (more) of family to join us next time.

Thank you for a lovely stay; we have had a lovely time; had a great taste of France; very quite location; stunning countryside!  Lots of great places to eat!  Thank you for your swimming pool.

Thank you for the wonderful hospitality and use of your gite.  Wonderfully relaxing holiday which suited all of our ages.  Fabulous opportunity to see the area and indulge in wonderful food and wine.  Hope to see you soon and will definitely be returning. 

It was a great holiday great fun in the pool.  I liked it when Charlie let me hold a real sword.  Kyle aged 5. Wish we were staying here for another week.  A very relaxing place to stay and so much in the area to see.  Highlights seeing glow worms on the way to the cave and amazing stars.  Very well equipped gite, lovely private garden, great pool.  Thank you so much for the darts board - we have a new darts champion.

Thanks for a relaxing stay.  Gite was ideal with lovely views and in a great location.  Warm hospitality.

Another lovely holiday.  First time in 5 years the weather wasn't so good but that doesn't stop us enjoying all this region could offer.  Thanks for all the good times hope to see you soon. 

Thanks Pam and Charlie for a great holiday, what a lovely home you have.  The gite was brilliant.  So nice to have breakfast looking at that beautiful view.  Such a lovely area lots of nice walks and villages to explore and outstanding markets to buy your food.  Couldn't have asked for more and weather was great.

All 9 of us aged 9 months to 66 years have enjoyed a lovely week here.  Everyone has enjoyed the beautful scenery and the pool, especially the night swim.  We have visited Brantome, canoed, Grand Etaing de Jemaye, river beaches at Lisle and Renamont, and would recommend them all.  Also enjoyed a lovely meal at Moulin du Pont Lisle.  

Thank you for a wonderful 10 days of relaxation in your gites.  Everything we could have wished for hope to see you again.

Two wonderfully relaxing weeks enjoying the countryside, the marke5ts, the food and especially the sunshine!  Oh and not to forget the wine of course!!  The gite has been a great base from which to get out and visit the local towns and canoeing venues, and all the family have relished swimming in the pool - the warmest one yet and hard to beat we think!!  T%hank you Pam and Charlie for your thoughtful hospitality!! 

Nous avons passe 2 semains magnifiques, au soleil!  L'endroit est fantastique, les enfants ont profite de tous les jeux et sourtout, de la pi8scine!  L'accueil est chaleureux et discrete.  Merci!

Two glorious weeks of weather and of course how much better it is in these great surroundings!  Thank you both again for providing facilities for it to be so great.  Our fifth consecutive year!  Says it all. 

Another very relaxing holiday with beautiful views and a gite to match.  The area is simply gorgeous and the  weather was wonderful

Wonderful holidays and lovely place.  Beautiful views from our gite warm hospitality nice pool for children and parents!!

To all the Nott family, including Bramble, thank you for a wonderful 2 weeks.  You have the perfect family setup for perfect holidays and you can even manage the sunshine.  Thank you all.

Many thanks for a beautiful and restful stay in your wonderful todler friendly gite… garden brilliant!  Lots of lovely7 visits to markets, lakes cafes and caves.

Fifth visit and as always felt relaxed within minutes of arriving.  Pam and Charlie you are very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble.  We are already booked to come next year for 3 weeks!

We had a lovely time at your gite.  Nice pool peaceful area, wonderful view, beautiful flowers, cherries and lots of space to do activities with the children.

Fabulous holiday, great location, gite has everything needed, including for less abled 81 year old mum.  Pam and Charlie were excellent hosts the pool was a big hit with my daughter.  Too many fine places to eat locally - must come again!

We have had a lovely 7 weeks relaxing in your gite.  Such a beautiful spot with views to die for.  Wildlife supplied at no extra charge with herons, deer, hares, kites in abundance.  We really appreciated all your help and advice.  Our first time to the area and not the last. 

Thank you again.  Superb gite superb walks.  Everything you need - home from home.  Just what we needed to recharge our batteries.  Also our dogs said they loved it here. 

Lovely relaxed and totally laid back place.  We came for 4 weeks and got the complete tonic!  We hope to come and live around here and we may have found the right place.  Can't stand the UK weather any more!!!

Lovely gite in a beautiful, peaceful spot.  We our children in friends who stayed in Papillon had a relaxing time.  Kids loved the cave.  Mixed weather but the spring flowers and birds compensated.

Another fab relaxing holiday here in the beautiful area of Dordogne.  Papillon is great for us as the dog comes with us.  Don't know what's in the air around here but it destresses you as soon as you arrive.  It just gets better each year.  See you in 2013 our 5th year running.

Enjoyed our 2 weeks here - very warm and pleasant.  As usual we did lots of short walks from our favourite "Emilie" book.  Also memorable lunch at Chabranelle to celebrate 47th wedding anniversary.

There's something about La Roche Chabrelle which makes you slow down and relax straight away.  It must be Pam and Charlies's influence.  Thank you for  a lovely week.  The gite is very comfortable and well equipped and we loved the pool and the peace.

As others have said a great spot.  Lovely pool which the whole family enjoyed 2 - 42 years old daily.  Loved Brantome and Bourdeilles the market at St Astier was great as recommended the beach area at St Aulaye was lovely.  Swimming and seeing the fish.  Older kids loved the canoeing youngest has learned to use his arms as well as his legs in the pool.  Have to agree about the great knives and thanks for the supplies - very thoughtful. 

We have said it all before I know but it is all worth repeating.  Our thanks for all that you provide - your generosity, your warmth and your taste for choosing such a spot to live and share with your guests.  It is all so inspiring and relaxing.  See you in 2013 for our 5th visit.

Real thanks to Pam and Charlie for their kindness and discretion,  cleanliness of the gite.  Super pool and lots of equipment.  No French TV. 

What a wonderful tranquil scenic place - soooo relaxing!! Enjoyed all of our holiday from the gite to the pool and the cave.  Lots of local site seeing done and enjoyed.  Canoeing was great fun and love Brantome.   We will certainly return very soon. 

It was great to return here, so many happy family memories in this region at Pam and Charlie's.  The children have had a great time as always in the pool.  Freda learning to drive and make new friends.  After a tragic year it was great for us all to be here and relax in the lovely surroundings.  Thanks again, especially for TV for Olympics.  We hope to come back again soon.  It's not quite the same having the head of our household missing but so many memories we'll have to return. 

We have had a great time, really relaxing holiday for all.  Well equipped Gite with beautiful view.  The children have really enjoyed the swimming pool.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay thanks to your wonderful Hirondelle and of course the extremely good weather lasting for 3 weeks!  The house is very well equipped even for more elaborate cooking inc. BBQ and eating al fresco almost every night.  Certainly added to the holiday mood.  It is wonderful to enjoy the views when the sun is setting, with a glass of wine. Relatively quiet part of the Dordogne - splendid.

We have had a great time here - a very peaceful and relaxing holiday.  A highlight for us has been the canoe trips which we completed on the Dronne and some of the food and wine we have sampled.  Wonderful spot.

We have loved our stay at Hibou once again - so very peaceful and relaxing.  The children have thoroughly enjoyed the pool and the boys have appreciated being able to follow Team GB's progress in the Olympics. This is currently my favourite place on earth.  I hope we'll be back soon. 

We have the most wonderful relaxing 2 weeks in such a stunning beautiful location.  Your hospitality has been so warm and welcoming and we cannot wait to come back.  So many happy moments, so many happy memories which we will always cherish. 

What a beautiful place!  We really enjoyed staying here.  Lots of fun in the swimming pool (late night swimming!)  The weather was very nice and there were beautiful villages in the neighbourhood.  It was great!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this very quiet area, made even more relaxing by our hospital hosts.

We have had a lovely holiday.  The house was well equipped with everything we needed.. The boys enjoyed messing about in the pool and playing with Daniel who was great fun.  The cycling has been great - so many roads and quiet enough to be suitable for kids.  Hopefully we will come back another time.

Thank you so  much for making our stay so enjoyable.  We all had a fantastic time, especially Lulu in the pool!  The area is beautiful and I'm sure we'll be back again soon.   Well done for having decent knives in the kitchen - so often overlooked in self catering places.  Won't ever forget the beautiful view from Hibou.

Another fab relaxing holiday here in the beautiful area of North Dordogne. Papillon is great for us as our dog comes too. Don't know what is in the air around here but it destresses you as soon as you arrive. Thanks for such a lovely holiday in your superb setting of gites: It just gets better each year. See you in 2013 - our 5th year.

We enjoyed our 2 weeks here - hot (31C) first week. As usual we did many short walks from our favourite 'Emile' book. Pool warm, scenery and the roads so quiet. Memorable lunch at Freres Chabronelle in Brantôme for our wedding anniversary - great recommendation.

There's something about La Roche Chabrelle which makes you slow down and relax straight away. It must be Pam & Charlie's influence. Thank you for a lovely week. The gite is very comfortable and well equipped. We loved the pool and the peace.

As others have said, a great spot. Lovely pool which the whole family enjoyed daily. Loved Brantôme and Bourdeilles. The market at St Astier was great, as recommended. The beach area at St Aulaye was great - the children loved seeing the fish, the swimming and the pontoon. Older children loved the canoeing. Youngest has learnt to use his arms as well as his legs in the pool. We have to agree about the great knives. Thanks also for the welcome pack.

We have said it all before but I know it is all worth repeating. Our thanks for all you provide - your generosity, your warmth and your taste for choosing such a spot to live and share with your guests. It is all so inspiring and relaxing for our annual holiday. See you in 2013 for our 5th visit.

What a wonderful, tranquil scenic place - sooooo relaxing!! Enjoyed all of our holiday - from the gîte to the pool and the the cave! Lots of local sightseeing enjoyed. Canoeing was great fun and we loved Brantôme. We will certainly return very soon.

It was great to return here, so many happy family memories in this region at La Roche Chabrelle. The children have had a great time as always in the pool.

Having stayed here with the previous owners for many years we have had a wonderful holiday once again marred only by Derek’s unfortunate illness. However we are eternally grateful for your kind and wonderful help and kindness without which Margaret would not have coped. We hope this will be your one and only major crisis.

Dear Pam, Charlie, Alex and Daniel. The only problem about this place is the difficulty leaving! Two weeks is simply not enough time to spend in such a relaxing, welcoming enjoyable holiday home. Thank you again for another wonderful vacation in rural France and we will be counting down the days to our return next year, for more swimming, table tennis, cheese and more cheese, meat sizzling on the barbeque and maybe even some more cricket. Possibly a little wine as well to was down all that food! Keep well and hope to see you next summer.

Time’s flown, we’ve all relaxed and loved sharing your home. We would all love to return and can’t wait to tell all our friends. Thank you again.

Cowes
We have enjoyed a very relaxing two weeks and don’t want to return home. The gîte has been comfortable and well furnished and the grounds have been beautiful. We have especially enjoyed the lizards and insect life. This area of France is beautiful and we would love to return again and explore further. Our canoe trips down the Dronne were a highlight, watching otters, kingfishers and of course plenty of fish. We recommend the trip from Lisle with 7 weirs to tackle. Great Fun! Thank you Pam Charlie and the boys for making us feel welcome. It has been home from home with none of the usual hassles! (Except for the car! Renault garages are a lot more efficient here)

Our second visit. Very peaceful surroundings, quiet roads for exploring villages by car. Well marked footpaths for exploring by foot too. We were here when the annual St Just walk and lunch was taking place. The rain didn't seem to deter anyone - there must have been 30 people taking part and even more lunching. We enjoyed 2 superb lunches when the weather was hot , on a cool shady terrace (Les Saveurs). The pool was good for cooling off. Longer trips to Perigueux were worthwhile. We will be back. Thanks Pam and Charlie for a wonderful stress free holiday.
