Comfortable , well equipped property with welcoming, efficient hosts in a beautiful area.
We really enjoyed our stay at Les Vachers. Alain and Sandra were perfect hosts, dealing promptly with any queries and providing lots of useful local information. The house has everything one could need and is well equipped for all ages. Visiting in late September, it took some courage to actually swim but the pool area is a great spot to read in the sunshine. The provision of two outside tables gives a welcome choice of eating in full sun or shade and is typical of the thoughtful provision for their guests' needs.
There are lots of interesting places to explore and flights to Bergerac make access easy. We would happily return and have already recommended Les Vachers to our extended family.
Lovely location. Alan and Sandra were very welcoming and accommodating.
The property is charming, in a terrific location. Great for our large family with lots of room for the children to burn energy. Our only disappointment was that the pool was very cold though it would be great in July/ August
Wonderful place, great facilities
We spent a week here in June, 2016. The owners (Alan and Sandra) live next door and were very helpful. Their information about local markets and facilities was excellent and they gave us advice on local walking routes as well. They even gave us free coal for the barbecue which was greatly appreciated. They also provide a written guide on the local area, with details of local restaurants, shops, markets and facilities. They are available without being in any way on top of you; really, they are perfect hosts. They even gave us a bottle of wine on the last night there.
In terms of the facilities, the photos don't quite do the place justice. The downstairs living area is large and comfortable, with UK tv provided (which was handy when we were there, as euro 2016 was on), the kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could need, the beds are comfortable and the outdoor facilities are fantastic. The pool is a really good size and depth. It can be a little chilly in the morning but as it is heated by the solar panels on the roof, it is definitely warmer in the evening and we used it six of the seven days we were there.
The location is a little rural but it is only about 15 minutes drive from Eymet, where there is a superb weekly market and about 15 minutes drive in the other direction from the Leclerc hypermarket in Sainte Foy La Grande which is huge and has just about everything you need. Just a word of warning though: on the main Bordeaux - Bergerac road there are loads of speed cameras, so if you are driving from Bordeaux, keep a close on eye on your speed.
All in all, an excellent place for a holiday and I'd have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.
Amazing week in beautiful Les Vachers
Nine of us (seven adults, two children and a small baby), spent a fantastic week in this lovely property. Located in the in the heart of the French countryside, surrounded by vineyards and rolling fields, the setting could not have been any better. This, coupled with the fantastic weather that we enjoyed, made it the perfect place to escape from everyday life.
The house itself was full of character. A modernised French farmhouse, gave us all the space and comfort that we could have hoped for, complete with BBQ (which got a lot of use), out door patio and seating, and lovely swimming pool, it was hard for us to leave the property and explore the local area.
If that wasn't enough, opposite the house was the lake which you can fish in (the owner has all the kit you need to have a go), and a nine hole pitch and putt course with a variety of clubs to borrow, so even the children could try it out.
The owner (Alan and Sandra) live next door to the property and so were on hand to give us very welcome help and advice on all manner of things, and when we had a problem with one of the cars we brought from UK, they were incredibly supportive and helpful, letting us use their facilities to sort things out.
When we did manage to venture out, we found the local area to be beautiful. Particular highlights would be Eymet - particularly on market day, and Chateau Bridoire with all its out door games.
With all that, a week wasn't really long enough and so we definitely plan to visit again in the future!
A wonderful away from it all location!
The property is set in a lovely peaceful location, and was very easy to find. Our family group of nine was supposed to enjoy the pleasant and very charming farmhouse for the period of our stay but due to a medical problem, my son and daughter-in-law were advised to return home as early as possible, cutting short their holiday at Alan & Sandra's beautifully converted farmhouse. Such a shame as the rest of us had a wonderful time exploring the local area, the local mediaeval festivities at nearby Eymet and the wonderful old parts of Bergerac. The whole area is steeped in history and tradition and, even though we spent three weeks here, it was impossible to fit everything in.
The property was spacious, more than enough room for everybody, the grounds around the pool and house were safe even for our one year old granddaughter to roam around - she would certainly have loved the space around the golf course and lake even more had my son's family been able to stay.
Alan & Sandra were extremely helpful throughout our stay, offering advice on where to go for the all important first shop after our arrival and also, if there was ever a problem, it was quickly resolved.
Their photos of the property didn't really do it justice - just ask the female members of our party who adored the magnificent bathroom upstairs!!
Our family look forward to another visit at some time in the future - hopefully no medical issues to curtail this visit.
Our second holiday at Les Vachers.
We were a large party of 9 people and the house is so spacious we never felt on top of each other.
The weather was brilliant so we spent a lot of time in the pool. We also enjoyed "Tiffin" (wine) at mid day along with a large spread of food ... French bread..cheese..parma ham ... melon etc outside on the superb large patio table.
Zeke who is 16 enjoyed catching loads of fish, you can see his photo on this site from when we were last at Les Vachers 2 years ago.
The lads Ray, Kyle, Connor and Zeke enjoyed the golf.
Thanks to Alan and Sandra for recommending Saint-Emilion catacombs and the English tour of the underground hermitage and monolithic church so called because it is carved out of one piece of stone in the hillside.
Thankyou for sorting out car hire for Kyle and thanks for organising two years ago a doctor for myself (Lorraine) when I was having a problem with my ears.
Enjoyed the market at Eymet on Thursday morning and the night market at Sigoulès on Friday night.
The locals are very friendly and were getting us all up to dance!
The food there was gorgeous you choose what you want to eat from the many stalls there . Then you take the food to your table with wine that you have brought with you and settle down and listen to the live entertainment.
A "must do" is to visit Oradour-sur-Glane a town that stands the same as it did on June 10th 1944 when the germans massacred the whole village.
The village has purposely been left untouched since the massacre, to serve both as a shrine to those who died and as a constant reminder of the unremitting evil of the Nazis.
Apparently the new villagers from the new village which stands alongside the 1944 village do not go near there at night for ghostly figures can be seen.
Oradour -sur-glane is about 2 hours away but we visited it on our way back home (we travelled by car).
Thanks again Alan and Sandra for your hospitality.
Didn't want to leave...but will definitely be back!
