Our Happy Clients brag about us

This is our 6th year of sharing our holiday homes in the hamlet of Les Sarrazies in Maurens, with visitors from around the world, and my 30th year of holiday cottage letting. We still get a great buzz in preparing for new visitors and seeing their pleasure as we show them into their chosen holiday property here at Le Clos du Verger. We’ve had many lovely customers of all nationalities. Time to trawl through the visitors book in each property and see what our visitors thought of their stay. We ask them to say what their favourite visits have been. Here are just a few typical replies from some of our English speaking guest

Margaret and Peter

Sitting in the bar by the river in old Bergerac, Visiting the village and dam at Tuilières (an unusual outing that we suggest in our “local guide”), Enjoying a meal with the locals at Les Oliviers in Maurens, Sitting by the stream at Le Clos du Verger and Local walks.

Close encounters with the goats

"We enjoyed the comfort of this lovely cottage, which kept us cosy despite the chilly weather. Thank you for the ‘Welcome’ basket so generously filled and much appreciated."

Carol and Jeff

"Dear Martin and Jane, thank you for a fab stay. Your little house was perfect in so many ways – a home from home. We loved the nearness to Bergerac and the quiet of the countryside. Thank you for your lovely hospitality. We will be back."
Yvonne and Tim
"We have had a lovely week in lovely well-equipped accommodation. Lots of interesting places to visit near and far. It is a beautiful area with lots to discover and enjoy. So glad we found this place. Perfectly placed near the airport and easy to get into Bergerac itself."
Sheila and Bernard
Close encounters with the goats

"Thank you Jane and Martin for letting us share your lovely home and garden. Nine days is not long enough and we are sad to be leaving. We both love wildlife and have not been disappointed, having spotted some birds and insects we’ve never seen before. The wild flowers are just amazing"

Wendy and Phil

A couple from Devon

“This gîte we found to be warm and welcoming and very, very clean. The bed was really comfortable, and there is a well equipped kitchen. Jane and Martin were very friendly and gave advice on all manner of things. We’d have no hesitation in recommending this place to others.”

“Wonderful start to our first visit to the Dordogne. Le Chai is great and the atmosphere inside and out is immediately relaxing. Sorry to be leaving so soon.”
Anne and Geoff
We have had an amazing time in this most beautiful part of France. The gîte is perfect, Jane and Martin have thought of everything. They are so knowledgeable too regarding the area. A thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable stay. Jane and Martin should be proud of what they have achieved – they have realised most people’s dreams.
