About this property

Tranquility In Luxury Accomodation. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Situated in the stunning Dordogne countryside our fully restored 2 bedroom/ 2 bathroom gite provides well equipped, spacious, light and airy accomodation in peaceful, private surroundings.
The gite sits in fully enclosed front and rear gardens at the far end of our property separated from the main house by a substantial barn and has the luxury of a beautiful 10 x 5 m heated pool with roman steps, alarm and large sunbathing terrace for your use in the rear garden.
Described by previous guests as "A little slice of Heaven" we have included everything to make your stay as relaxing as possible.
Although a car is essential we are within 10 minutes of the local town of Mussidan which has a good range of supermarkets, banks, doctor, dentist, pharmacies, restaurants etc.
Bergerac and its airport is only a 25 minute drive with Bordeaux approx 1 hour. Numerous tourist attractions to suit all ages and tastes are within easy reach.
We have a large number of pets ranging from donkeys, Shetland ponies, micro pigs, pygmy goats, dogs, cats, chickens and ducks who are all securely enclosed within their own paddocks but whose antics provide much delight to guests enjoying a glass of wine on the gite rear terrace. We are always delighted to introduce our pets to guests.

We had a wonderful relaxing holiday. The pool was amazing and very welcome in the heat we had.
The gite is well located for visiting many attractions.
There are plenty of shops and several supermarkets in nearby Mussidan (5 min drive away).

Sara and Janet were great hosts and we loved meeting all the animals.

We had a lovely week on our first gite holiday. Out party was two adults, our 22 year old son and his girlfriend. The setting is beautiful and tranquil, though the price of tranquility was a long drive to the nearest supermarket.
Overall, the gite was well equipped, though investing in new sofas would make a difference to the overall comfort and cleanliness as they are a bit tired. The gite is much larger than it looks on the photographs, which really don't do it justice.
The swimming pool was a bonus as we arrived in a heatwave.
Janet and Sara were very welcoming and I would have no hesitation in recommending this property, or in staying there again.

Was promised a slice of heaven, didn't disappoint us at all.

Arrived with two teenage girls, good clean usable gite, lovely pool in a rural peaceful setting, was so relaxing looking out of the fields watching the ponies & donkeys just chillin (really missed them as I sat on the train today)

Beautifully based for Bergerac, Bordeaux & all the vineyards in & around Bergerac

Great village market at Issageac on the Sunday

Great setting for kids of any ages, safe setting with lots of walks & cycle rides

Janet & sara really lovely, warm & helpful without being intrusive in any way

All in all would we go back, definitely

Had a wonderful 2 weeks holiday in Les Tilleuls!

A lovely gite, in a perfect setting. A quiet, secluded location in the wonderful Dordogne countryside, lovely private swimming pool, and very well equipped and comfortable gite.

We couldn't have asked for anything better - and our thanks to the owners, Sara and Janet, for their warm welcome and helpfulness throughout our stay.

Highly recommended.
