Arrive…………. and relax. We loved it!
We had a great week here and would very much recommend this property for families or couples looking for a high quality, well equipped self catering gite. We found the property very well placed for exploring the Dordogne but enjoyed the rural setting and relaxing surrounds at the end of a day. The garden is safe and flat for children’s play and the pool area secure. Our children aged 5 and & loved the outdoor toys available and also the company of the children in the adjoining gite not to mention playing with resident dog Nelly – a favourite part of the week for the children! The pool and hot tub were great and maintained to a high spec. Alex and Alison were perfect hosts during our stay and their communication before the trip and around arrival was very helpful. They have sound knowledge of the area and tourist sites (and in our case a car garage!) and were happy to pass on lots of top tips. It’s obvious to see why they have many guests returning year on year as this place is a gem. Thank you02 July 2016

Great location; Great accomodation; Great Hosts
There are so many good things about this property that make it a great place to stay: The location is quiet but still convenient for immediate facilities (shop and restaurant) as well as short trip to town for all the ‘bigger’ needs. The gites are well equipped, everything is immaculate when you arrive (Alex even cleans and polishes the barbecues!) and the pool is excellent – temperature is always just right to cool you in the heat but allow the kids to stay in indefinitely without getting cold. Alex and Alison are superb hosts – Lots of ideas on places to eat or visit and even making bookings at those places that are, for non-locals, a little more difficult to access. They are very conscientious in sorting out even the smallest of hiccups with the facilities. I would strongly recommend this property to anyone… so long as you don’t book before we do!30 July 2016

A wonderful gite in beautiful surroundings
The gite was everything we hoped it would be – beautifully renovated and cared for, very well equipped, immaculately clean and situated in very pretty and well tended gardens. Plenty of room inside with spacious bedrooms and a lovely en suite to the main bedroom. The location is peaceful with wonderful views across the countryside which can be enjoyed from the verandah/patio, gardens, pool area and hot tub. The sunsets across the fields are beautiful. The pool area is very well looked after and a lovely space to relax. The hot tub was a real bonus and enjoyed by the family in the evenings. As the outdoor facilities are shared only with one other gite, the outside space feels very private and for most of the holiday our garden/pool times were our own. The owners were incredibly welcoming and helpful and, as they’ve lived in the area for many years now, it was so valuable to be able ask their advice about local shopping, activities, events and local life.

What can I say about our stay with Alison and Alex !! From the moment we arrived until our very last evening, we were absolutely thrilled with everything from the pool to the sun deck. Having never before been to the Dordogne, we found A and A’s knowledge of the area to be really helpful. We managed to eat at their favourite restaurant (twice) !! Having been on numerous gite holidays in rural France, I can honesty say that everything was perfect, even down to the oyster opener !! We ate and drank with A and A and have rarely felt so relaxed. Alex gave me advice on which lake to fish and where to fish and I managed 10 carp over the two weeks, with the biggest just under 30lb. I’m so glad I took my strong line. We will most certainly be returning to Le Monchat….if only to throw the ball for Nellie.

Accomodation beating expectations
My fourth visit to this gite was as I have come to expect, a warm welcome on arrival at this well appointed gite. Owners are friendly and on hand most of the time with advice on things to do and always aim to meet any additional requests. The pool and hot tub are always clean and at a reasonable temperature and set in the private garden with superb views are perfect to relax in. Cendrieux is well placed for access to tourist destinations in the Dordogne and Vezere valleys as well as the larger towns and cities of Bergerac, Perigeux and Bordeaux. Cendrieux itself is a small village and has a bar/restaurant, ‘relais’ (mini-market) and post office. There are many good restaurants within 30 minutes drive from Cendrieux, we would highly recommend Julien’s at Paunat, Couleurs at Campagne or any restaurant in Tremolat.
And they have subsequently been back in June this year & are coming again in October.
