“Fabulous Gite, Beautiful Surroundings and Lovely Hosts.”
Reviewed 19 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We have just returned from 14 wonderful days at La Jolie.

Jan & Elly were wonderful hosts. Friendly, approachable and helpful. Elly also prepared a lovely meal for us to heat up on our arrival which was delicious.

La Jolie is a beautiful gite in a picturesque location. The decor is modern and tasteful, the kitchen is well equipped and the beds are very comfortable. We travelled as a couple with our small dog however the gite would be perfectly comfortable for 4 adults.

La Penoterie also has a lovely pool with views of the French countryside. Our small dog very much enjoyed running around the field with her tennis ball!

The town of Montignac was also perfect for our requirements. There were lots of lovely shops, bakeries, a market and a supermarket.

We would highly recommend La Penoterie and will definitely be returning ourselves.

“Brilliant Accommodation!”
Reviewed 25 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

What a beautiful gite and a very warm welcome from Elly and Jan. We were greeted with a drink of wine on the deck on arrival and Elly had prepared a delicious chicken dish for us to reheat at our own convenience which was just wonderful. The gite is beautiful, modern, and very clean. The surrounds are also gorgeous and it is super quiet, so fabulous for a good night's sleep.I would highly recommend and hope to one day return!

“A place to be for people who really enjoy living.”

people found this review helpful

This is a beautiful place and perfect venue to visit not only Montignac and the beautiful villages in the surroundings, but also to really gear down the speed of life in a very lovely luxurious and super comfortable Gite. The owners Jan and Elly have created a magnificent place on the hills just outside Montignac. You can enjoy the quietness from nature and still enjoy the old villages and the French "joy the vivre" .
