wonderful stay at Kiwi cottage
What a lovely property in a beautiful part of the world. We were able to relax, drive to everything we wanted to visit, eat out at wonderful restaurants or make our own meals from what we bought at the many farmer's markets.
Lulu and Caspian couldn't be nicer. They allowed us our privacy, yet were available when we needed.
Just as the title says - idyllic - if you designed your perfect holiday then this is what you would end up with !
Our Dordogne dream vacation
We enjoyed a perfect 8-night stay in the Kiwi Cottage. It was our first visit to the Dordogne River area. We loved the quiet, rural nature with lush vineyards and blooming fields of sunflowers. We are a couple, so the 1-bedroom cottage with the comfy king bed was perfect for our needs. The cottage is modest, but nice, clean, and well-maintained. With the bountiful local markets (such as in Ste. Foy), we were very happy to cook in a couple of nights and eat breakfast 'at home' – the kitchen was suitably equipped.
It was a fairly hot time during our visit, so we really enjoyed the pool –beautiful, pristine, and perfect for lap swimming and general cooling off, and lots of lounges for sunbathing. (There is a covered outdoor gas barbecue grill by the pool, however we did not take advantage of this.) We especially enjoyed night swims with the moonlight. The cottage's air-conditioning was necessary and very much appreciated.
Although seemingly quite rural, the cottage is just slightly over an hour from the Bordeaux airport, and perfectly situated for day trips to numerous chateaux, the vineyards of St. Emilion, beautiful medieval villages, such as Sarlat la Caneda, and canoeing on the Dordogne.
As others have noted, Caspian and Lulu are very gracious and fun hosts, and we now consider them great friends. Their recommendations for places to visit, restaurants, etc. were most helpful and generous. We loved their insights and conversations so much...we look forward to connecting again soon.
Great place to stay and explore surrounding vineyards. Caspian, Lulu and Geffory!! The perfect hosts
A really nice place to stay. Well equipped lovely pool. Great for exploring local areas or just lounging around. Will certainly return.
Most delightful Kiwi cottage
Very delightful cottage, tastefully furnished, wonderful big bed and bedroom with aircon.
Beautiful location, very quiet amonst the vineyards.
Great pool in a wonderful quiet corner with a good outside kitchen and furniture.
Some good restaurants nearby, we particularly liked l,Ardoise.
Some supermarkets in the area, a nice small Carrefour near Vélines.
We would most definitely recommend this property to other holiday makers.
The owners, Caspian and Lulu are very helpful and charming.
We will be back!
Really a home from home
Spacious and comfortable in a beautiful, quiet location we really enjoyed our holiday here. Although the weather was mixed while we were there we really relaxed and took things very easy. Caspian and Lulu were fantastic hosts.
