Some Kind Words From Our Guests

We always appreciate getting feedback from guests who have stayed at Le Tilleul gite and enjoyed a great family holiday in the Dordogne.

Below are some of the kind comments we have received. See our Facebook page for more testimonials.

Idyllic - A peaceful retreat.Close enough to the local amenities but far enough for total tranquility. The Gite is furnished to a high standard. It has everything you need. The main bedroom & wet room have a Boutique feel. Our requirements were for a smart place to relax & recuperate. The pool & terrace certainly provided this. This is up there with the best of any places we have rented.

We cannot recommend Le Tilleul highly enough.The gite is beautifully appointed in a wonderful area with access to numerous activities such as cycling and kayaking.We also enjoyed the local towns and villages which were nearby. But the real joy was Mike and Anna ,from the first communication to the final goodbye nothing was too much trouble. Directions to attractions, restaurants and supermarkets (although I would ask Anna as Mike had trouble with his left and right, sorry Mike !) Seriously, we really loved every aspect of our stay and can't wait to return.

Had a wonderful time discovering part of the Dordogne on one of your excellent 29er mountain bikes. Fantastic information was given to me on trails and routes, from long traffic free lanes and riverside trails to technical sections with difficult climbs, combine this with the stunning beauty of the Dordogne and you are definitely in for a great holiday. Huge thanks to Mike and Anna for everything.


Exceptional! Nous avons beaucoup apprécié le cadre, le confort et la tranquillité de ce gîte. Un grand merci à Anna !

Excellent gite in charming rural location. We stayed with our 12 year old at his wonderful gite which is set in a quiet, scenic hill top location but within an easy short drive to a bakery and shops. The gite is tastefully furnished to a high stand ard with excellent attention to detail. The high spec. bathrooms were particularly appreciated after a long busy day out. The friendly owners, Anna and Mike, live next door and are on hand with helpful suggestions and advice. They create a perfect of balance of being around for advice, but we did not feel we were overlooked. The pool is fanatastic; large enough for a swim. Sharing the pool was perfect as we tended to use it at the end of the day mostly and in effect had it to ourselves. We easily found fun things to do all week and would have happily stayed longer. There is canoeing, riding, cycling, picturesque french towns to wander around, grottos, walking trails and local markets all within a 30 min drive. Mike is great for ideas for off road cycling from the property for the fit and it is possible to hire cycles on site. The owners run a cycle hire company from the field opposite but tend to deliver the bikes so there was no traffic from peope coming to the site. We would love to come back to the gite again with our older children as it is a great area to keep all ages amused whilst the Gite provides a lovely setting to relax and enjoy the family. We will have great memories of this holiday!
