When we booked La Fourquerie, it was a shot in the dark, having been to the same place the previous four times we have been to France. Having no Facebook page to go by, we went purely on these reviews. It did not fail to live up to our expectations. When we arrived we were met by the wonderful Wendy and her dog Bella. Our gite was immaculate and there was a nice bottle of red waiting to welcome us. We found Wendy to be a delight and a very giving person. The gites are beautiful as is the surrounding area. There is plenty to see and if you are not sure, Wendy is a mine of information. If you are planning a visit to this area, then you have to stay with Wendy. We can cannot recommend her enough!
This is the perfect place to escape to in the Dordogne for peace and quiet. Wendy is the most welcoming hostess. I wish we had discovered this before. The house is full of character overlooking the rolling hills of the Dordogne and the room has the original beams of the building. The facilities were perfect, we had a fresh coffee machine, milk in the fridge, tea in the cupboard, wine on the side.... Wendy knows everything there is to do in the area and picked us up and dropped us off at the airport.
Just spent a week in this wonderful gite. Really well appointed with everything you could need. Great kitchen, super shower and comfortable bed. Coupled with a warm welcome from Wendy and Nick and lots of recommendations of places to visit it could not have been better. Should have booked to stay longer as we didn't make much use of the swimming pool but we would definitely return.
We had a superb couple of weeks exploring the Perigord with this rural gite as our base. On arrival we found a generously stocked fridge with all the essentials. It didn't take long to begin unwinding in the beautiful and peaceful location.The owners were very accommodating and helpful in providing local knowledge of restaurants, markets and places to visit which proved invaluable. Had some lovely evenings chatting with the owners and sharing apero's by the pool.....we were made to feel like part of the family.
