We stayed in La Fermette for a week in September 2018, our biggest regret is that it wasn’t two.
We were a party of six: Grandma, Grandad, daughter, son-in-law, 18 month old granddaughter and our labradoodle.
Without doubt La Fermette is the most beautiful and best equipped holiday home we have ever stayed at in either France or the UK. Karen and Rob gave us a very warm welcome and we felt immediately at home.
The grounds are fabulous, the babbling stream with grazing cows on the other side, idyllic. The children’s play area (Karen and Rob changed one of the swings to suit our granddaughter before she had even arrived), the swimming pool and extensive gardens and lawns.
The house is extremely toddler friendly, stair gates, high chair, cot, monitor and eating equipment all to a very high standard, which makes for a more relaxed holiday for parents. It was really great to have access to the toys in the barn which could be borrowed and swapped during the week.
We all had the best time and would highly recommend La Banquet for a holiday in south west France.
We have just returned from our fifth stay at Le Banquet. It never fails to make us feel that this is one of the most wonderful places to stay in France.
This time we stayed in Le Tournesol, which is the smallest of the gites but plenty big enough for the two of us, however we have stayed in the other gites over the years and all of them are of the highest standard with everything you could need during your stay.
But it’s not just the buildings and the location, the owners, Karen and Rob, complete the package. We look forward to seeing them as much as we do revisiting their beautiful home. They are always on hand if you need them and nothing is too much trouble.
If you want the perfect holiday in the Dordogne, you need look no further.
Where can we put 6 stars? We have just spent 5 days at Le Banquet – a utopia in the Dordogne that had it all.
Exceptionally tasteful and well equipped accommodation set within exquisite gardens with a proper size pool. Great proximity to restaurants and the caves.
The owners, Karen & Rob, are very genuine and lovely people.
Thanks for “sharing” your piece of paradise
