Jasmine is a beautiful little house and we can tell how much work and thought you put into it to make it as nice as it is! and I know as I am an architect and do-it-yourself home renovator as well! We have never been to a holiday home before that was so well equipped. We also enjoyed the evening markets in Eymet and Duras very much. Thank you for everything and maybe see you again!

What a great location, quite and pleasant the days were hot and dry, thank goodness for the pool!! The markets locally were a great source of local food and wine. Vivienne and Norman thank you for everything and the thought you have put into this gite or should I say house. A Fabulous stay. We absolutely loved the area, tip's on restaurants and house. Our favorite place was Monpazzier, unfortunately 'Bistro 2' was shut but we were so glad we went on your suggestion - as the town was beautiful. Also Sigoules night markets were a big hit. Thank you for all the time and effort you both have put into our stay. It was such a fantastic stay!! I will definitely recommend your place to friends and family. Thank you!!

This is not a gite - it's a home, where we could live happily for much longer than 2 weeks! Thank you so very much Vivienne and Norman, for thinking of everything a home needs and more. The location too, needs nothing to be desired and even the weather decided to settle down for us. We have explored the countryside, the chateauxs and the markets for miles around but we were equally happy staying at 'home' in this glorious garden with its swimming pool and every other facility you could think off. Thank you. S and D, Chipping Norton.

The best gite we have been to in France. Fabulous facilities in a wonderfully peaceful location close to beautiful countryside, picturesque towns and villages with fabulous food and wine. Plenty to keep children and adults happy and when the sun shines it is very hard to pull yourselves away from the lovely pool area.

Pretty much the perfect holiday location for anyone wanting to relax and completely unwind.

This stunning property was everything I had hoped for and more. On arrival my family and I were warmly welcomed by the owners - Norman and Vivienne - who took the time to show us all around the propery and point out its special features, modern conveniences and equipment. The photographs truly do not do it full justice. All internal rooms were spacious, well equipped to a high standard and spotlessly clean including the large open plan kitchen area and showerroom. There are several outdoor seating areas which permit the guests to enjoy different aspects of the garden and views from the property. I especially enjoyed watching the stunning sunsets from the front of the gite. The pool and surrounding area is large enough for two families, clean and beautifully maintained. The gite is situated in a pretty little village which does not have its own shops but there is a well stocked small supermarket, boulangerie and patisserie and a restaurant in the neighbouring village of Sigoules only a couple of kilometres away. A car is essential.
Vivienne and Norman are fantastic hosts and no request was too much trouble even down to providing some duct tape when it came to packing up for home.
I would have no hesitation in recommending 'Jasmine' to family and friends. My only concern in doing so is that this may affect my own chances of booking a return visit!

By far the most comfortable,well-appointed and quietly situated gite we have stayed at since visiting the area. The owners could not do enough for us in our needs during our 2 weeks stay there. We would not hesitate in recommending friends and relatives to Jasmine. Its pool was a real bonus during the sunny weather we had. We did not dine out as much as we should have liked due to personal circumstances but dining at La Grappe d' Or is worth a consideration.
