(09-2022) Dear Ms Mennes,

We really enjoyed the peace and quiet and this beautiful and cozy Gite with a hospitable Brigitte as hostess. The location of the Gite with a great view was also very special, I have added a photo of a setting sun.

A compliment to the very hospitable Brigitte and much appreciation for the great work she does as a volunteer!

(08-2022) Dear Lydia,

We greatly enjoyed our week's holiday in the fine house Pigeonniere Grande. The house is spacious and nicely furnished, the pool is lovely (especially with this hot summer) and the garden and the view are great. The owner is very nice and correct. In short, we enjoyed it.

Send you a few photos of the house, garden and swimming pool. Maybe you can do something with it. Good luck with the rental and maybe until a later moment.

(06-2022) Dear Lydia,

We had a really wonderful holiday in Pigeonniere Grande which was a magical place to stay and explore the region. With medieval Martel just a short drive away, superb swimming and kayaking on the Dordogne (and in the pool at the house1), and a host of les plus beaux villages de France within 30 minutes, I would recommend it to any family looking for a break in the countryside. 

Best wishes,

We had such a good time.
The old horse that roamed free, babhou the sweet cat and Brigitte and Alain are very sweet and have good tips.
The area is very beautiful and there is too much to do in 1 week. Fantastic!!

(05-2021) Hi Lydia,

We really enjoyed our stay, despite the cold temperatures ;-)
The hostess is warm and helpful and the cottage is everything we expected.
If we have any pictures, I'll be sure to forward them to you!

Good day,
Best regards,

We had a wonderful holiday, hopefully you can post a review below on your website.

What a beautiful gite, Pigeonniere Grande. More beautiful than in the photos and basically everything is there. Wonderfully quiet, very friendly French owners, which do not bother you and a beautiful view and space at the house. And then there is also a horse walking through your garden, great.
Even our teenagers aged 14 and 17 had a great time, with badminton and the table tennis table, which is there ????. And of course the lovely saltwater pool, quiet, almost private and a beautiful view.
The bakery in Martel is about 5 to 10 minutes by car, where there is also a good supermarket Intermarché. Martel is a nice village, with many nice and good restaurants
There is a lot to do in the area, nice villages, caves, canoeing on the Dordogne or looking for a lovely spot by the river, at a rapids during the very hot days, super cool.
What was a downside for us are the beds, they are really very narrow and short (note from FV: we will include this in the evaluation!). And for outside a few nice chairs where you can read a book. Now there are some kind of beach chairs, these are not really comfortable.
We definitely recommend the gite.

I hope this is of use to you, we do have pictures but we are on them ourselves.
