'Unbelievably beautiful property. Adrienne and Jan are incredible hosts, we had an amazing stay. Very highly recommended for all.' Ashley, April 2022.
'Stunning gîte with fabulous facilities. Hosts are very welcoming. The pool was brilliant and kept 2 teenage girls occupied. Stunning location with amazing views.' Simon, April 2022.
'Superbe maison, très bien équipée, en pleine nature, l'ideal pour se détacher du quotidien. Hôtes très discrets, mais très attentifs! Magnifique piscine privative indispensable pour surmonter les épisodes caniculaires de ce joli coin de France. Et petit coin à l'ombre avec table de ping pong, hamacs...' David, July 2021
"Adrienne and Jan have created a beautiful holiday home in a truly stunning location. Everything from check in to check out is done with care and attention to detail. The barn itself was spotlessly clean on arrival and comes fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. The welcome pack is also a lovely, personal touch. It is also worth stating that the quality of eerything is high. From the pots and pans (le Crueset) to the poolside shades. The pool itself is fantastic and spotlessly clean. Adrienne and Jan were more than happy tooffer their tips and advise about the local area (which is beautiful and offers a great deal), whilst giving us privacy to enjoy our holiday. Our children loved exploring the plentiful land and spotting the nature all around. We were also fortunate to be on holiday whilst the fields around displayed their sunflowers in full bloom. I cannot recommend this property highly enough. Thank you Adrienne and Jan for such a wonderful holiday, you really have created a labour of love." Jonathan, August 2020.
"WOW! This is absolutely outstanding. Adrienne and Jan are the best hosts we have ever had. Incredibly kind, informative, welcoming, lovely people. The house itself was perfect. Beautifully clean, comfy beds, stylish interiors, well-equipped and in the most fantastic location - surrounded by sunflower fields! Being within walking distance to La Sauvetat-du-Dropt with a bakery, shop and bar was brilliant - especially the food festival hosted there on Friday night! The nearest towns Eymet and Duras are both brilliant with great restaurants, bars and markets. The swimming pool was the icing on the cake - well built and looked after to a very high standard. Proximity to local vineyards was also great and very convenient! Adrienne and Jan are fantastic hosts who really care about about their guests and their home. We would recommend this property to everyone and look forward to returning again soon!" Christian, July 2019.
