A lovely big old house full of character in a very quiet location. Alan and Sandra were great hosts.
We had a wonderful holiday in this house at the end of August. The house is very old and full of character. There were 10 of us spanning three generations and there was something here for all of us. We particularly liked the huge living/dining/kitchen area where we could all be together but doing separate things, the pool with its adjacent paddling pool which was great for the grandchildren (2 months to 2 3/4), the large outside dining table with its permanent gazebo which meant we could use it in all weathers (mostly sunny during our stay), the fishing lake, the pitch and putt course, all the help Alan and Sandra gave us, for example where best to eat and buy the local wine, and the very quiet location.
Points which could be of relevance to others but which were minimal issues for us were that sound carries a long way inside the house (this is a feature of the very old construction of the house, which is also what makes it so characterful) and that the only shower is with the one downstairs bedroom.
super séjour, accueil extrêmement chaleureux, site très calme et bien situé.
Le site tient ses promesses en terme de calme et de repos. La piscine est vraiment sympa, eau chauffée, transat en nombre. Le terrain de golf est à disposition, largement assez vaste pour bien s'amuser, le matériel prêté. 2 chiens sur le domaine, très gentils et coutumier des visiteurs, aucun problème de ce côté.
Le site est au final bien positionné géographiquement, central entre Bergerac, Duras, les bastides, nous n'avons jamais été obligé de faire plus d'1/2h de route pour se promener.
Le barbecue est très agréable également, à 5 mètres de la table d'extérieur, qui est abritée sous une tonnelle, appréciable avec la chaleur.
Le seul bémol : un problème de fuite d'eau au niveau de la douche à l'étage, qui fait que de l'eau peut couler au travers du plancher. En réalité cela concerne plus le propriétaire que nous, mais je le signale par souci d'exhaustivité.
Draps de lits et serviettes fournies, ménage inclus : même si le prix est plutôt dans la fourchette haute du marché, je recommande très chaleureusement ce gite ! Pour notre part nous avons 1 semaine de souvenirs excellents.
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!
