“Our 2nd stay and we are sure we want to return”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed here for a week in 2012 and returned in Aug 2014 for 2 weeks. The gite is a delight with everything you could need. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The area is beautiful and we had a wonderful time checking out local towns and villages and exploring the countryside. We are already planning to return at a different time of year to do more walking in the area.
David is a brilliant host, there if you need him and handy for tips on days out or for making bookings, but never obtrusive.
If you are thinking of coming to the area, stay here. We can't recommend the gite highly enough.

“Perfect, most comfortable and pleasant place I've ever stayed”
Reviewed 31 December 2013 for a stay in July 2013

A party of 4 we stayed in this gite for the second time the first time having been in March when it was just my husband and me. The fact we came back should tell you everything. We loved it the first time around and our friends who were with us on the second trip were just as impressed. They agreed with us that is just the most comfortable and charming place to stay. It has everything we could want and David the owner is a charming, helpful but unobtrusive host. The village of St. Pompont is lovely, we were fortunate on our second trip to be there when they have a 'bunfight' on Saturday evenings when tables and benches are set up in the village square and there are stalls you can buy food from. Don't think greasy spoon. think haute cuisine, it is fabulous!! In a village 5 minutes away is a French chef who does cookery courses, my husband is interested so hopefully that means another trip :-) It would be perfect for a group of friends who wanted to combine a holiday with learning French cuisine. Also any artists or walkers as the area is very rural and peaceful, the perfect place to just sit and draw or walk and enjoy the countryside or explore the history of the area which is fascinating.
If you want a comfortable, peaceful, enjoyable holiday in a lovely part of France there can be nowhere better to stay. Thank you David for taking the care to make your gite such a lovely place for people to enjoy their holiday. Hopefully we'll be seeing you again before long!!

“True French countryside location”
Reviewed 3 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

If you're looking for a very quiet getaway in lovely French countryside, this is the place. Saint Pompon is a small village, and like many around the district, you see very few of the local residents. Maison Mireille is a fairly roomy 'gite', that makes up the end of a much larger house, and enjoys a rustic setting. Good points are the comfortable living areas, and pleasant conservatory and outside eating area (with BBQ). The double room is adequate, but not huge, whereas the twin room is large and airy with two windows opening across valley views. Unfortunately, there's no option for two double beds. The bathrooms are well appointed.
The house has all the basic kitchen and entertainment equipment (including Sky TV), although cutlery and crockery were only just enough for four guests. Curiously, there are no condiments (table sauces, spreads etc), so these must be bought by each renter. David does provide a welcome pack - a very nice touch, but really only enough for a snack with a drink. Strongly suggest that guests pick up their supplies in one of the larger towns en-route to the gite - especially on Sunday when almost everything is shut. (That said, we did find a great little bar in nearby St Laurent that served dinner on Sunday evening). A shop in Daglan 10 minutes away offers well prepared French food for taking back to holiday homes, and is a good option if you like a few wines with dinner! If you feel the need for some gentle excrcise, the walk down to the village boulangerie or small supermarket is lovely in the cool of the morning, but be prepared for a fairly steep stroll back to the gite, and not recommended on hotter days.
The owners are very knowledgable about the region and gladly help plan your stay. There's lots to see, and St Pompon offers a great base for touring the region.

“Like coming home in France”
Reviewed 24 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The photos and description in Tripadvisor came to life when we arrived at Maison Mireille! We stayed for the last week of Summer 2013 in this wonderful gite and would return anytime, any season! David, the owner, had a daytrip suggestion for our first day - we immediately got in tune with the pace of country living! He made helpful suggestions throughout the week. Our nearest villages (St Pompon & Daglan) - you wont find them in a tourist guide or easily on a map, but we discovered them bit by bit and what gems they are! We attended the last Saturday night village festival in St Pompon: amazing experience! We really enjoyed our stay in the Perigord Noir. It's central enough- we did 2 day trips from here.(St Emilion & Rocamodour) Returning to a wonderful place at the end of an exploring day!

“Perfect Gite”
Reviewed 30 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We have stayed in gites in various areas of France for nearly 30 years. Most have been good but there has always been something missing to slightly reduce the quality of the accommodation. At last we have found a gite which has everything to make for a perfect stay. The owners have really thought about every aspect of the properties they rent out and as a result it is filled with everything you could need - and all of a very high quality. The property is in a beautiful setting a few minutes' drive from the attractive village of St Pompon and is quiet and surrounded by fields and trees. The owner, David, was extremely helpful and friendly. There was a wonderful 'welcome pack' of food and an excellent bottle of wine. As you re shown around it is immediately apparent that the accommodation is very spacious and completed to a very high standard. Our gite had a sun lounge and private garden area with loungers and BBQ. The kitchen was fully equipped and modern. The bedrooms were large and the beds were extremely comfortable. We slept very well as a result. The bathrooms are also large and extremely smart. We had a wonderful stay at Maison Mireille with easy drives to all major sites in the region and would highly recommend it to anyone. You could not be disappointed.
