  1. It was a delight to host you and thank you so much for your lovely review.

  2. We had such a lovely time on holiday in one of your gittes. The resort is so relaxing; we loved the well kept pool, the location and the welcome we received. The gitte was well equipped with everything we needed, and more. It was a pleasure to meet you both, you made us feel so very welcome. We don’t often return to the same place twice, believing there are so many places explore but we may make the exception with yours!
    The local lake was great to walk around, the beach to sunbathe on and it’s restaurant to walk to in the evenings. The boulangerie was just minutes away each morning – we put on pounds as we couldn’t resist the daily coissants and pain au raisin. All in all, a perfect break. Thank you!

  3. Dear Simon & Emma,
    Thank you for the great review. I’m glad you extended your stay with us, for a wedding at chateau de la Durante, and managed to see some beauty spots. Until next time, Chris & Alexandra

  4. Thank you Alexandra & Chris for a lovely week at your Gite.

    Firstly we had a wonderful time & secondly we will most definitely come back.

    As somewhere for a relaxing holiday it is perfect. The Gites are very well equipped with everything you could possibly need when you’re there. The pool is lovely, and the fact you offer a games room with table tennis, darts etc & 4 bikes for those that want to explore using pedal power is an added bonus.

    Although rural being only 5 mins from the local village where you will find a small supermarket, a restaurant, pizza take away, pharmacy, post offie etc was really handy.

    In terms of things to do then we were spoilt for choice.

    There’s a lake at that the bottom of the driveway which you can walk around (1.5hrs) or cycle (45mins – there are 4 bikes for guests at the Gites) with a coffee stop at the lakeside.

    Two separate drives out/day trips that i would highly recommend would be to Brantome (the Venice of the Dordogne) & St Jean de Cole (lovely little medieval village) and then Arnac-Pompadour (large chateau & equestrian town) & Segur le Chateau (stunning little medieval village). The former was a 45 min drive West of the Gite & the latter about the same East.

    In summary, the location & surrounding area is beautiful, the Gites offer everything you could want for a stay of this kind & are excellent value for money

  5. Thank you so much for taking the time to write a great review after such a long journey! We look forward to seeing you again.
    Translation: The gites fully lived up to expectations. What a top location and little paradise. Beautiful surroundings and landscapes. This is where you come to rest. The apartment was equipped with everything down to the smallest details and then the pool with a view. Great. We will definitely come back again!!

  6. De gites voldeed volledig aan de verwachtingen. Wat een top locatie en klein paradijs. Prachtige omgeving en landschappen. Hier kom je volledig tot je rust. Het appartement was van alles voorzien tot in de kleinste details en dan het zwembad met uitzicht. Geweldig. Wij komen zeker nog een keer terug!!

  7. Très belle propriété, très bien entretenu, avec une piscine de rêve! Le gîte était équipé de tout le nécessaire et était d’une propreté irréprochable! Merci Chris et Alexandra !

  8. Merci. J’espère que votre fille de 16 ans ne s’ennuyait pas à la campagne!

  9. Ma fille et moi avons passé une très belle semaine de vacances dans le gîte. Il est extrèmement bien équipé, tant au niveau de notre appartement que dans les parties communes (fléchettes, table de ping pong, barbecue, vélos) et la piscine est très bellle.
    Le gite est situé dans une belle région avec juste à coté la base de loisirs très sympa (activités, petite plage, restaurant…)
    Nous avons eu un problème avec la télévision et les propriétaires Alexandra et Chris ont été très réactifs pour le régler en un temps record. La région est magnifique et paisible.
    En résumé, super séjour et je recommande vivement !

  10. Just got back after spending another lovely week at Gites De Rouffiagunet. This was our second visit but enjoyed it as much as the first. Alexandra and Chris lovely hosts and make you feel really welcome. Our Gite was clean and tidy, perfect for our needs.
    There are plenty of places to visit without spending hours in the car, then relax by the pool or outside your Gite with a glass or two.
    We look forward to returning next year!

  11. My friends and I came to the Gites for a wedding nearby and we had a brilliant time staying at the Gites! Alexandra even went the extra mile and helped drive us to and from Thiviers where we had caught the train and even did a Lidl run with us. The Gites are lovely and peaceful and I don’t think you can compare the beautiful tranquility there. Thank you Alexandra and Chris!

  12. WE had a great holiday in the tidy, well equipped and spacious Gite. Alexandra and Chris are great hosts and the setting, gardens and swimming pool are fantastic. We stayed a week and spent time just relaxing in and around the Gite and swimming pool, with a games room and bikes at your disposal it was just perfect for us. I would thoroughly recommend it to all couples looking for quiet , relaxing place to stay.

  13. We have just returned from a wedding at Chateau La Durantie and we feel fortunate to have stayed in one these beautiful apartments, which are about 5 minutes by car from the chateau. Our apartment was cool, spotlessly clean, well-equipped (there are even British sockets supplied!) and enjoyed picturesque views of the surrounding countryside. The location is quiet but shops and restaurants are only a few minutes drive and the nearby lake has a beach, with variety of water sports on offer. The pool was clean and surprisingly warm; sun beds and parasols were supplied and we often had the whole thing to ourselves. Chris was happy to drive us to and from the wedding venue and, although we felt very private, was on hand to answer any questions. We would definitely come back, hopefully for longer next time. Thank you Alexandra and Chris.

  14. A warm and friendly welcome from Alexandra and Chris, the charming hosts, awaits you at this beautiful gite. It was absolutely perfect. The accommodation was spotless and so well equipped, everything was provided for a comfortable stay, a real home from home. The pool was lovely and there were ample loungers and sun shades. The location is idyllic with walks to and around the lake and the use of the bikes added another dimension. We would definitely come again.

  15. We have had a fantastic week in your lovely gite. Chris and Alexandra have truly gone above and beyond from recommending places to visit to helping when we had car trouble. Truly a peaceful and beautiful setting for a very relaxed holiday. A fantastic start to our honeymoon! Thank you!

  16. We stayed in Gite Noisette for 5 days and loved the setting of the accomodation with its beautiful gardens and views over rolling countryside. The large pool was the perfect way to spend the early evenings after exploring the area by bike. The location was perfect with plenty of attractions to visit. Thank you so much to Alexandra and Chris for being brilliant hosts and making us feel so welcome!

  17. We hadden een heerlijke week in la Noix.Het appartement is erg compleet en erg schoon. Goed bed ook. Het zwembad is fantastisch. Alexandra en Chris zijn erg vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Omgeving is prachtig. Genoeg te zien. Het meer met strand is ook erg fijn. Ook fijn restaurant erbij met heerlijke specialiteit van de streek.Voor 3 stellen zou het ook leuk zijn om hirr te verblijven. Samen maar toch genoeg privacy. Aanrader!

  18. Just got back after spending a lovely week at Gites De Rouffiagunet. Great location and hosts. The Gite was clean and had everything we needed. Enjoyed the pool after a hot day sight seeing or with friends in Angoisse. Looking forward to going back soon.

  19. Two of us stayed in Gîte NOISETTE for 10 days. It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped for cooking and relaxing. The patio is definitely a bonus, sitting amongst the beautiful plants in the sun. It is surrounded by pretty gardens and is charming and peaceful . We made use of the games room, the pool and did several walks around the lake. It was in an ideal location for visiting local chateaus, beautiful villages, the old paper mill, cave systems, Perigeux and many more locations. The activity centre wasn’t open but as expected when out of season. Alexandra and Chris were perfect hosts and THANK YOU as we didn’t say goodbye. Hope to be back again soon.

  20. Set in beautiful countryside and has a lovely big pool although it was too cold for us to use it during our visit.
    V good value for money gite. Ours had windows overlooking pool and great views.

  21. What a fantastic time we had. The location was perfect and the accommodation very well kept. We made the most of the activity centre around the lake and would advise anyone with adventurous children to do the same. I would not hesitate to recommend Gites De Rouffiagunet to anyone.

  22. Our hostess Alexandra was very welcoming and informative, Gite Noix is well equipped, and is set in peaceful and tranquil surroundings – the walk around the lake is well worth the effort to see the local wildlife, however when we stayed the weather was not very kind to us, therefore we made use of the very well equipped games room. The Gite also has a lovely patio area and is complimented with the swimming pool. Had the sun come out we would have had the perfect break. We would not hesitate to return.

  23. We had a great stay at Gites De Rouffiagunet last weekend. The setting is beautiful – we made the most of the lovely pool as well as the terrace outside the Gite for eating in the morning and evening. It is really easy to get around and the information left in the room was incredibly useful. The accommodation was spacious and comfortable and Alexandra and Chris were really friendly and helpful.
    Would recommend very much – we wish we could have stayed longer, hopefully another time

  24. What a find! Ten days of peace and relaxation in the most wonderful surroundings. Gite was spotless and well equipped – couldn’t want for anything. Wall to wall sunshine allowed us the use of the pool which was a wonderful bonus on a hot afternoon. Hosts Alexandra and Chris were very welcoming and obviously take great pride in their lovely home. All in all a brilliant 10 days.

  25. Stayed four nights at the beginning of September. The gite was perfect for our needs – spotless, comfortable and very well equipped. The pool was a real bonus – plenty of space and excellent sunbeds and shades. The lake is very close by and is a super spot to spend a day. Very peaceful – although difficult to find a restaurant open on Sunday night!

  26. We thoroughly enjoyed our short break at Rouffiaguet aided by glorious weather. Our gite was spotlessly clean and well equipped & Alexandra & Chris were welcoming hosts. In a beautiful, peaceful setting, there are many pretty villages and towns, not to mention numerous chateau to visit if you can tear yourself away from the enticing & very warm pool! I am sure we will be back next year.

  27. We spent a little over a week in La Noix and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very relaxing and perfect for two people wishing to get away from it all. Plenty of places to visit within easy reach of Rouffiaguet. Quiet roads, pleasant driving and walking and lots of places for good inexpensive food. The gite was very comfortable and well equipped. Particularly enjoyed Hautefort. Our thanks to Chris and Alexandra for a warm welcome and there local knowledge.

  28. We have just enjoyed a delightfull stay at La Noix ROUFFIAGUET . The gite was very comfortable and very well equiped. We enjoyed the patio to sit out in and relax. The swimming pool was a bonus in the very hot weather. It was very well maintained too. Thankyou Chris and Alexadra for your very warm welcome ( and John too )

  29. We have just returned from a delightful two weeks staying in La Noix, a comfortable gite for two people that is well finished and has most attractive internal walls of local stone and render. Alexandra and Chris were most welcoming and happy to provide any help and assistance if requested. The pool was most welcome for the hotter days and was meticulously maintained. As an additional note, the pool is a constant depth of 1.4m- so no sudden surprises over a change in depth! For a relaxing holiday in this quieter area of thie Dordogne, with its numerous small towns and villages plus dramatic Chateaux to visit, we would highly recommend this property!

  30. merci pour ces quelques jours passés dans votre belle maison, pour votre accueil et la beauté des lieux. Nous vous esperons de nombreux clients! à bientôt peut-être.

  31. We have stayed in many gites over the years and have had varied experiences but we are pleased to say Rouffiaguet is up there amongst the best (in fact second place only to one which cost three times the price!!). A well located and excellent value gite. A very spacious and very clean property with a very comfortable bed, a very nice and well sized bathroom and shower, a well equipped kitchen and an excellent pool. It is located in a beautiful and peaceful setting with easy access to many interesting and delightful sights (or just chill by the pool if you prefer). Alexandra and Chris friendly, excellent and helpful hosts who are on hand if you need their assistance but they are never intrusive. The weather was excellent for our stay and we even enjoyed the impromptu ‘sans lumieres’ on our last evening (my goodness that was one spectacular lightning storm) but perhaps the huge hailstones were a bit excessive! In summary an excellent gite and equally excellent hosts which we thoroughly recommend. We may well be back Alexandra and Chris!

    Thank you for your hospitality

  32. Nous avons passé une semaine de détente en juillet dernier. Le Gîte est très appréciable, charmant et frais! Piscine agréable avec vue MAGNIFIQUE. Mr et Mme Billing sont très attentifs au des vacanciers et attentionnés. C’est très calme, très reposant. Séjour super dans une région très belle ! A découvrir …

  33. Stayed the last two weeks in June. Chose this location as it is central, for Limoges, Oradore, Dordogne and Perigueux.
    The bonus was the Swimming Pool. Sorry to say the weather did not assist, but did swim @18c, OK once you got going. Had two days at 22c,
    Alexandra and Chris made us most welcome, always in the background, but there if you needed them.
    The Gites have everything you need. Loads of hot water, a lovely shower and best of all a comfortable bed.
    Would recommend this Gite if you are visiting the area.
    Didn’t have chance to say good bye but thanks all the same.
    (It was the coolest June I’ve known in the 10 years I’ve lived here! Alexandra)

  34. Our first trip to France and Alexandra made us very welcome with providing milk for a cup of tea after a three and half hour drive from the airport. The accommodation was great, all the necessary equipment to cook with was there and all the little things you would not expect.
    The area and lake nearby are beautiful and there are some lovely towns nearby to visit. Thoroughly relaxing holiday. We are now converted to taking our holidays in France and will probably visit Alexandra & Chris again at some point. Our only disappointment was that the pool was not in use during our visit. 5/6/13.
    (pool is high season, as it is not heated. Alexandra)

  35. We stayed in one of Chris & Alexandra’s Gites for a week in winter 2009/10. We enjoyed it so much we’ve just enjoyed another 9 nights (Sept/Oct 2010)! As the other guests have noted, Chris & Alexandra are very welcoming and helpful. It was even warm enough for a swim in the lovely pool this visit! We recommend the Menu de Jour at the Brasserie in the Tour Blanche on the northern outskirts of St Yrieix la Perche (en route to Limoges). It was 10 euros for 3 courses and coffee!

  36. We had a lovely stay here in July 2011. The Gite was really well done and the welcome was very warm. We would recommend a stay here. Many Thanks.

  37. From the moment of our arrival we were made very welcome. The owners (Chris and Alexandra) are very pleasant, helpful and informative about anything you may wish to ask. You may have felt the owners were not there but they did not wish to infringe or impose their prescence, allowing you to enjoy your stay. However,
    they were always available if needed but absolutely not \”in your face\”. Nothing was too much trouble. We arrived late on Saturday evening and hadn’t bought milk. This was kindly provided by the owners so that we could get a cup of tea.

    The accommodation itself was absolutely perfect, spotlessly clean. The location was perfect and peaceful, a little bit of paradise. The barn had been sympathetically converted to Gites and finished to a very high standard. Chris and Alexandra had thought about everything and provided it, even down to a small
    torch to save you disturbing your partner during the night by putting the big light on.

    There was plenty to do in the area and also at the accommodation itself. The lake is just down the lane where there is a beach, restaurant, canoeing, water ski-ing, high ropes course and fishing. At the accommodation there is a lovely 12mtr swimming pool which was excellent, clean, and kept in great condition. A
    large sports area within the unconverted part of the barn was available to use, board games, darts, skittles, table tennis, toys, mountain bikes all available.

    For us, it was a very long drive from the North East of Scotland down to the Dordogne Region. Its a good two day drive each way. We have holidayed in France a number of times but this has got to be the best place we have stayed, it certainly was well worth the travelling.

  38. Recently returned from a delightful stay at Rouffiaguet. Chris and Alexandra made themselves very approachable, and provided us with local info, a rucksack, teabags and milk which was a fantastic help! The gite was also incredibly clean which makes for a very pleasant stay. We would love to return given the opportunity and have already been recommending rouffiaguet to friends and family. We were incredibly happy there and terribly sad to come back!

    Many thanks for a fantastic stay.

    Emilie & Russell

  39. Dear Chris & Alexandra,

    Just wanted to say thank you very much for our lovely holiday & your hospitality last week. The gite was beautiful & so was the pool!
    We hope the graduation goes well & all the best in the future – we will certainly recommend you.
