My husband and I have been property managers for 15 years, looking after second homes for owners wishing to rent them for the summer season. In 2014 we took over a small holiday rentals company Poolside Farmhouses & Cottages. Over the years we have amassed an excellent understanding of the standards required and expected by holiday makers and property owners alike.

Pereyroux was close to being the perfect Dordogne holiday gite. It was beautifully situated, blissfully peaceful, had a fabulously well equipped kitchen, a BBQ, a table tennis table and a lovely mini-inifinity pool. The only thing missing , which was not the fault of the owner's, was a local boulangerie. For fresh bread and croissants, we had to drive 5 minutes to the next village St Julien de Lampon- which was no real hardship. In St Julien, you can also find a nice bar//restaurant, a pharmacist, a butcher and a minimart.
The owner was friendly and helpful without being intrusive and we were pleasantly surprised by a very nice welcome hamper. She was also a mine of information on what to see and where to eat.
The property itself was in good condition, being a barn that was converted only a few years ago. You do have to watch your head on the low support beams though. The furniture was shabby-chic but perfectly serviceable.
The only downside to the beautiful, quiet location is that you do have to drive everywhere but the roads around Pereyroux were mostly empty and it was an easy half-hour drive to all the major sights and towns.
Overall, we had a great time staying at Pereyroux and would recommend it .
Thank you for your lovely review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Pereyroux and we hope to welcome you back there, or to one of our other lovely properties, in the not too distant future. Best wishes, Dee. Poolside Farmhouses & Cottages.
This was our 2nd visit to Pereyroux and it didn't disappoint. The setting is stunning and the accommodation perfectly suited our family from a 5 year old grandson to an active 88 year old! The gite would be suitable for a couple of families as it is very spacious with 3 bathrooms. There were lots of personal touches including wine and nibbles on arrival and recommendations for local events. The "abri" alongside the pool is perfect, lots of pool toys and even a fridge to keep things fresh for our lunch every day. The pool is perfectly clean and well looked after. Tonic, the owner, is about next door but is very discreet, good to know she is on hand for any problems. Because of our previous visit it felt like home straightaway and we look forward to booking again next year. We usually never go back to the same place but this was a request from everyone in the family.
It is at the high end cost wise, it would be great to get discounts if returning! Bit of a treck to the supermarket although the local store in St Julien de Lampon had most essentials. The bakery was fantastic in St Julien although we did panic them ordering 8 croissants, 4 pain au chocolat and 2 baguettes!
We enjoyed a great canoe trip from Vitrac to Beynac and of course the market in Sarlat is fantastic.
Tonic and I thank you for your lovely comments Jan. We are delighted you enjoyed a second stay at Pereyroux and we look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future :-). Warmest wishes, Dee
