“Very comfortable, very relaxing vacation at the Chai”
Reviewed 16 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

people found this review helpful

My husband and I stayed at the Chai for four nights in August, intending to spend time in and around Bergerac. Our nine-year-old daughter was with us. The Chai is very comforably equipped and furnished, and Jane and Martin were welcoming hosts. They provided a basket of snacks and a bottle of wine on our arrival, which was much appreciated. We stayed around the house perhaps more than we had intended because it was so comfortable, but getting to Bergerac when we wanted to was easy. We went into town for half a day to take a ride on a Gabarre, a traditional style boat, and have dinner. We went in another day for the weekly market, which was fabulous. There was lots of information at the Chai about things to visit and to do, and we made good use of it.

We would definitely stay at the Chai again.

“Great accommodation in convenient yet quiet situation.”
Reviewed 8 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We received a warm welcome from Jane and Martin. Spacious accommodation which is very well equipped, clean and with nice furnishings. Situated in a quiet spot, yet only 5 mins drive to Bergerac, and well positioned for accessing surrounding attractions and towns. Good quality and value for money. Would definitely go back in future.

“Absolutely Fantastic”
Reviewed 19 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My husband and I have just returned from a week's holiday at this property. The property is very clean and well equipped. It had absolutely everything we could possibly need. Our hosts Jane and Martin were on hand if required but never intrusive. Many thanks to them for their hospitality. The welcome pack was much appreciated and even included a bottle of local wine.

The property is well situated for the local town and within easy driving distance of local vineyards and tourist attractions. We have no hesitation in recommending it to others and would stay here again. We had a wonderfully relaxing holiday - batteries well and truly recharged.

“perfect in every way”
Reviewed 17 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

What a fabulous holiday we have just had ! We stayed in the Chai and it was absolutely lovely. We received a very warm welcome from Jane and Martin and they invited us to have lunch with them as soon as we arrived. The Chai is spotlessly clean and provides everything and more for a great holiday. We wanted for nothing, but I am sure if we had needed anything Jane & Martin would have sorted it out for us. They really are a lovely couple and you feel right at home. The location of the property is beautiful - quiet and picturesque, but in 10 minutes you are in the gorgeous town of Bergerac. This was our first trip to France and we were enchanted by the little villages and beautiful Medieval towns, some close by and some a little further afield. If we return to this part of France again, there is only one place we would stay and that is with Jane & Martin. We would like to say a huge thankyou to them both for making our stay PERFECT !!!!.

“Comfortable well equipped property, good location”
Reviewed 13 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We spent Christmas here and had a wonderful time. The hosts, Jane and Martin, were helpful and friendly and most welcoming. The property was very comfortable, warm and cosy and extremely well equipped. I brought the usual extras for self catering (corkscrew, favourite knife, torch, matches etc) and didn’t need any of them, it was all there already, even down to a generous supply of toilet paper, dish-washer tablets and wood for the burner! We also appreciated the many thoughtful extra touches – including a prettily decorated Christmas tree and a welcome pack with lots of tasty goodies. All rooms are spacious, a good big shower and comfortable beds. There is good “real food” shopping in Bergerac beside the church, and of course plenty of supermarkets around the outskirts.
