“Perfect owners,location and ambience”

We have just returned from a holiday in France during which we stayed for two weeks in Charles and Anne's beautiful home.
Having stayed in many self catering properties previously, this was the first time we had extended to two weeks in one location and it proved to be a wise decision.
Two weeks gave us time to re discover the wonderful sites and activities in this part of the Dordogne but also to have a lazy day when required and simply enjoy 'our house,' - the frogs, the pool, the wine on the roof terrace watching hot balloons etc. etc.
Communication with Charles and Anne was excellent (we coincidentally met them in Oz during the booking process) and subsequent email conversations were promptly answered and very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.
The house itself was beautifully furnished and felt like a home not a rental, surrounded by fragrant gardens and capped off with the lovely pool.
Most of the sites you will want to visit in the region are within an hour or less and of course the Sarlat market is not to be missed.
Do yourself a favour, stay two weeks!

“A PLACE TO DREAM ABOUT.”
Reviewed 5 June 2017 for a stay in April 2017

What an amazing place! I won't try and describe the property as you can see pictures on the website. It was a wonderful place to stay for eight days. Awakening with the sound of the birds and the sun peeking in the shutters. Mason Gris is perfectly positioned to visit all the local attractions, if you can tear yourself away from this unique property. Turn left out the gate and a short morning walk to the local Boulangerie for fresh to die for croissants, passing the beautiful tennis courts across the road.The old town of Sarlat is only minutes away with it's historic buildings and market. We cannot recommend this property highly enough.

“Idyllic property in the most wonderful location”
Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Maison Gris was recommended to us by friends who have stayed there many times. The house was instantly a home, clean and tidy and yet welcoming and cosy. The pool was clean and well maintained and the grounds were beautiful, set in picturesque countryside. We found the house to be very well equipped and the welcome pack had clear instructions and lots of recommendations about things to do and places to visit.

One bit of advice for drivers - don't follow Sat Nav! Follow the instructions on how to get there from Charles and Anne, the property owners. Much more accurate!

All the daytrips we took to see the prehistoric sites and caves were within an hour's drive of Maison Gris in all directions, so it turned out to be the perfect location for us. I would take my family back again in a heartbeat and would happily recommend the property to my friends and family. A home away from home.

“Fabulous French country home for a group of 8 friends.”
Reviewed 10 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Eight of us spent a wonderful week at La Maison Grise in September, converging from Oxford, Paris, St. Petersburg, and Oregon. We had a terrific time cooking together, hanging out by the pool, playing tennis, canoeing, visiting beautiful medieval villages, and hiking. Each evening we decided where to have our cocktails: on top of the tower? by the pool? by the frog pond? Each morning someone walked to the terrific boulangerie - 5 minutes away - to secure our croissants, pains aux raisins, and baguettes for the day. Yum! The views from this lovely home were spectacular. Great location - only a 10 minute drive to Sarlat. I would highly recommend La Maison Grise!

“Lovely house with great views. Very comfortable”
Reviewed 8 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Seven adults spent a week in Maison Gris. We had a terrific time and the house, gardens and pool were lovely. The rooms were very comfortable and there were many places to sit so the seven of us never felt crowded. There is easy access to many of the sights in the Dordogne. The only caution is that St. Andre d'Allas is on a ridge. This provides the views but we had hoped to do more cycling and any trip out involved a steep climb back.
