We have just returning from a very relaxing family week in this lovely house. The house has beautiful views overlooking the countryside. Shops and lovely restaurants are a short car drive away. The area is gorgeous and very unspoiled The house itself has been very carefully renovated and is comfortable and well equipped. The owners live in the cottage nearby are charming and very helpful.
We recently spent a week in this lovely house and had a wonderful time. The owners, Julia and David, were extremely helpful especially with recommending and booking resturants and even help at the pharmacy!
The house was really well equipped and we had some lovely meals sat round the huge dining table. The beds were really comfortable also and there were beautiful furnishings everwhere. The pool was great and the pool house verandah was a great place to have quiet time.
The house was also really well situated for exploring the local area and was less than an hours drive from Bergerac airport. Really recommend this property! Thanks to the owners again for a great stay!
I had the privilege of staying in this beautiful house with some friends in May this year. It was picture perfect with its far-reaching views of the countryside from its gorgeous large terrace. Most evenings we had a barbeque and relaxed under the stars with a glass of wine. Bliss!
It has a stunning large swimming pool and the whole space was extremely peaceful and private. I loved the architecture of the house with it's French flair. Lots of interesting artefacts about and nooks and crannies. It was beautiful. It was set in the most gorgeous gardens with lots of lovely roses in full bloom when I was there.
The house was extremely comfortable and the main living area was huge. It was filled with antiques and was very tasteful and charming. The kitchen was particularly well stocked with everything you needed to prepare a good meal for our party of 8. The house will easily accommodate 10 I would say even more…My bedroom was large with a lovely ensuite with a fantastic, brand new shower. I loved it. The bed was so comfortable and the sheets were sublime.
It is very near the village of St Leon which is by the river and the epitome of the image of the beautiful, sultry, Dordogne days that I imagined.
We went kayaking on the river and had some fantastic lunches outside at the riverside cafes. I absolutely adore this particular part of the Dordogne.
The owners seemed very nice and were very knowledgable about the area and gave us some fantastic advice on where to eat and the best chateauxs to visit. We found the Trogladyte village really interesting.
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this fantastic property in this most stunning area.
Thank you for a lovely holiday, we'll be back.
We had a blissful stay at this beautifully situated, story book house, set in Perigord Noir. The views were stunning in all directions. The house is immensely stylish with a designer's flair and an eye for detail and comfort. We loved the antique beds, the tiles in the kitchen, the beautiful sofas and fireplace. Here at La Goulette, a feeling of space and timelessness transported us from a hectic London existence to a sense of tranquillity and elegance. The pool is perfect - I wouldn't change a thing, a good size, excellent quality sunbeds and space to relax. We enjoyed rustling up some Provencal dishes in the superbly equipped kitchen and sitting out on the large terrace felt like stolen pleasure. A lofty tree with lime coloured leaves gave shade at lunchtime and in the evenings, we sat out for hours, lit candles in the lanterns and enjoyed the soft evening light over the fields beyond. In the daytimes we ventured out to visit the local chateaus, dined at at some charming cafes and walked along the river. There is so much to do here, we are counting the days until our return. Thank you La Goulette for an experience of a lifetime, so much more than a holiday.
La Goulette is absolutely stunning. From the huge terrace overlooking the typically Dordogne green fields, to the elegant interior decor and homely feel - thoroughly recommended. The nearby towns of Plazac, Rouffignac and Montignac are quintessentially french with some of the friendliest locals around. Car hire is recommended, but if you're feeling a little braver most these towns can be visited on bicycle also. We visited the house for a long weekend in May and still managed to use the swimming pool, so if you're looking for a relaxing summer holiday - this is the perfect place!
