(04-2024) Hi Lydia and Thijs,
What a wonderful place Mon Desir is! That peace (when the (grand)children are inside) is simply palpable. The house allows you to be together, while at the same time there is room to find a place for yourself... we really enjoyed it. A house like that is the foundation for enjoyment.
Thank you Yvonne and Eric

Very nice beautiful and large house. Nice swimming pool, the children had a great time in it and on the grounds. Also cozy inside. Many rooms and bathrooms. The only downside: installing air conditioning. Those large containers take up a lot of space: open windows so mosquitoes get in. And make a lot of noise, which made it too hot at night. Otherwise we were very satisfied with the house and have already recommended it to countless people. Thank you for the great service.

(08-2022) Hello Lydia,

Apologies for the delay in sending you this, the last few weeks have been a little crazy. Anyway we just wanted to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mon Desir, it was perfect for the ten of us and we had absolutely everything we needed. The location is idyllic and the views are stunning. The house and the gíte are well equipped and we certainly made good use of the lovely pool.

We enjoyed looking around Gourdon and it was an easy drive to buy all we needed from the local shops and supermarkets there.
Our thanks to you for all your help and advice before we went, the trout farm that you recommended for lunch was fun and the trout dishes were delicious.

Our thanks also to Christelle for her welcome and my birthday champagne and a big shout out to Rashid and his delightful family for coming to the villa and preparing and serving the most delicious meal.

The house was definitely worth it and we had a wonderful week's holiday. We will definitely use your services for our next visit to France.

Thank You again
Kind Regards

Elaine and the holiday gang


Hello Lydia, we had a great stay to my desire.

Looking forward

(08-2020) Good morning Lydia and Thijs,

Just found a moment to let you know that we had a great holiday in the house Mon Desir.
The first week with our children, the second week with the two of us which was also wonderful.
The house is in a beautiful spot with a great view over the valley, and we were regularly surprised by the peace and quiet that is there every day.
If you didn't play music yourself, you only heard a train ride in the distance, that was actually all.
Furthermore, the house met our expectations, although my children were amazed that no toilet made the use of a toilet holder possible, there was just not there haha. So the role was always in a different place.
The lack of hooks for hanging towels, especially in the kitchen, took some getting used to, but these are only very small observations that did not spoil the fun.
The pool was lovely.
After all, we had a great holiday, and I appreciate your professionalism in guidance from the beginning to the end.
Have been away with Belvilla many times, but this is just as good.
For next year we would like to go deeper into France, and then as a couple, so suggestions are very welcome.
Thanks for everything, and maybe we'll talk again next year.

Kind regards Gerard and Regien
