In answer to your tirade of our review.
Ive never in all my life been accused of not admitting to anything, 1 glass was broken by the pool and was promptly reported to yourselves, as was breaking off two branches off one plant. Accidents do happen and apologies were given to your husband. And may I ask just what and how much damage was caused by our dog (a chihuahua) who was walked on a lead at all times and all deposits picked up
Criticisism is a way to improve your business, not to insult. We gave a fair review, as did another guest who arrived after us, whom you also attacked verbally. Why don't you take the reviews as they are meant and work on the findings, we made a contract with you on monies paid, your business did not warrant the amount because of cleanliness. We have not asked for a refund, nor do we expect one.
We stayed here for a birthday week. The Gite is in a brilliant location for Sarlat, La Roque Gageac, Beynac etc. The hosts were friendly and there were 3 bottles of wine, cheese and butter in the fridge which was welcome. Although it is a spacious Gite and can sleep up to 9 but I would think it would be a tad cramped. There is only 1 wardrobe for 3 bedrooms and yes there are drawers. The size of the fridge in the kitchen is just not big enough for anymore than 2 people, really needs 2 fridges or a larger one. The smoke alarm battery had been disconnected. The bedding and towels were clean but the whole place needs a good clean and a freshen up..we had to clean the fridge before using it. It really needs a good hoovering/shampooing throughout, lots of cobwebs around legs of drawers and tables. The bathroom also has damp in a corner which really needs to be kept on top of, even though the Gite is 250 years old. The windows need cleaning and the entrance door to Gite is covered in fingerprints..with a little bit of TLC it could be stunning...
My wife and myself visited Les Petite Bressettes for a get away from it all break in the beautiful Dordognue this beautifull gite sits in the peacefull countryside and you really feel you can chill out and relax.
The accomodation is equipped with everything you could possibly wish for even included a great welcome pack including wine which we really enjoyed.
The accomodation comes equipped with a warm swiming pool which we were able to use a lot.
The owners Malcolm and Elizabeth were the best hosts really friendly and nothing was to much trouble and had a fantastic knowledge of the area and its attractions.
I would recommend anybody to visit this beautiful Gite it can be as relaxing or as busy as you wish as its in the centre of many attraction and activities especially as we found canoeing.
We will look back on a fantastic break in a great area of France.
We had high hopes for this stay as we were following the Tour de France and the location was perfect. Elizabeth and Malcolm, the owners, are pleasant and helpful with places to visit in the local area, however their gite is anything but pleasant to stay in. It has clearly been neglected for sometime. The property smelt and felt damp - this could be seen in the ground floor bathroom and the property not properly cleaned. We had to hoover the carpet, clean the bathroom and mop all the floors on arrival. When we switched on the heated towel rail in the bathroom it tripped the electrics briefly so we did not attempt it again. Most of the fixtures and fittings are old and most worrying of all we would question safety if you want to use the freestanding gas cooker. The cooker is operated via a gas bottle, which is stored in an unvented cupboard under the sink in the kitchen. We dare not use the cooker as there was a strong smell of gas and despite mentioning this to the owner who briefly looked at the appliance it made no noticeable difference. We therefore did not risk cooking anything for the duration of our stay. The microwave looked fine but we did not use it. The old tv broke after one day and could not be fixed until four days later as their engineer was on holiday. The beds were clean and comfortable to sleep in but there only one small cupboard to hang clothes and one small bedroom mirror between all three bedrooms. There were, however, some drawers in each to lay things in flat. We left a day early as this was our earliest opportunity to sort out alternative accommodation. Pool looked cloudy throughout our stay so we did not use it and we were not offered the use of a hot tub. Disappointed that 'tripadvisor' list such a place as this.
We've just wrapped our fourth visit to Les Bressettes and there is a reason we keep coming back time and again. The gite is perfect, beautifully maintained and very comfortable, the gardens and pool sublime and the hosts go out of their way to make your stay great. This time we arrived in mid morning and even though we were early for the afternoon check in, it was no problem at all. They had everything ready. It was lovely to see that since our last visit they had added more chairs and umbrellas and more comfortable cushions to the pool side seating. I think the only thing that could make it even better is if they could find a way to install or have access to a full size fridge. Particularly in the summer, when you go through a lot of drinks, it would be so nice to have more space so that there was enough room to keep drinks including water bottles cold. But we adore the place and of course, this will not be our last visit!
