‘The Perfect Getaway’

“We had a fabulous week in the Gite de Monarque enjoying its excellent facilities, the tranquility of the area and also the easy access to our old holiday haunts of the Dordogne. Simone and Dave’s suggestions of places to visit were extremely helpful – We thoroughly enjoyed the evening farmer’s market in Segur Le Chateau as well as the horse racing at Pompadour. Kayaking on the River Dronne starting at Brantome (Brantome Canoe) is highly recommended although a change of clothes is a definite necessity! We had 3 children in their early 20s with us and they loved every minute of this holiday which says it all! We look forward to returning.” July 2014

‘Peaceful Rural Location’

“Simone, Dave and the children were perfect hosts – couldn’t have been more helpful. Accurate description of gite regarding location, layout, facilities etc. Gite is in a lovely rural location with lots of space around. Great to be able to sit outside and dine. Extra addition of outdoor games such as badminton and swing ball really good. Lovely pool. Gite well equipped and spacious. Highlights:- Evening farmer’s market in Segur Le Chateau, horse racing at Pompadour, chateau at Hautefort and pretty village of St. Yriex La Perche. We found two fabulous traditional low key French restaurants: – Plan d’Eau D’Arfeuille next to the lake at Arfeuille and La Table d’Erillac in the square at Hautefort – both doing fabulous, simple but very tasty French fare. Suggest booking to avoid disappointment.” August 2014

‘The wow factor!’

“We have just enjoyed a wonderful holiday at Gite de Monarque. It has the wow factor as you arrive and is situated in idyllic surroundings. Simone and family were the perfect hosts and made the stay very easy and comfortable. We enjoyed an evening of dining at the marche at Segur le Chateau and were made to feel very welcome by all the villagers. We definitely look forward to returning next year.” July 2014
