“At first glance, as we turned into the meadow, I knew this was a special place. I will treasure our time here and long remember the beautiful forest walks we had – truly a paradise.”
“Our stay was wonderful. Our pattern was to tour by car in the morning and walk in the afternoon, finishing the day, of course, on the terrace with a good bottle of wine. We dined out and cooked in equally, and I made good use of your herb garden. There was a sense of sadness in leaving, something that is often not the case on a trip. Thank you for creating such a special place.”
“Despite the fact that ‘sudden prayer makes God jump,’ I couldn’t restrain myself from slinging one heavenward at seeing this lovely place in such a superb setting.”
“We’ve been here two and a half days and feel totally transported to another world. The house is so comfortable and tastefully done. Everything we might need is here. The Perigord Noir is breathtakingly beautiful and Gaurenne is a jewel.”
“We have spent 3 weeks in Perigord Noir, seen majestic castles, ruins, enchanted forests, caves, visited old churches, picture postcard villages, countless marchés, eaten cèpes from the woods and fresh eggs from your neighbor, dined in style at the Centennaire and other Michelin starred restaurants, but nothing gave us more pleasure than coming back to Gaurenne, taking a swim, and sitting outdoors to dine.”
Kapi & George G.
“We’re the luckiest of visitors – we had a month at Gaurenne. For some that would be just enough time to visit every chateau, tour every grotto, sample every restaurant. That is, to use Gaurenne as a base of operations for a vast tourist expedition. That is not us. And if there is any advice we can pass on, it is: Don’t overlook the joys of just being …here.”
“We have traveled extensively in Europe – always renting houses and apartments along the way. This farmhouse is the most beautiful. I can only say that it feels like a little slice of heaven on earth. If I could live here, I would be content and at peace with the world.”
Steve and Julie K.
“Our expectations were high, but they were surpassed by the experience. The house and property are lovely, but your thoughtful instructions, advice, emails, and follow-up telephone call enhance it all, providing a sense that we are more guests of a wonderful host than mere renters.”
Paul and Adele K.
“Our stay exceeded our expectations and thank you for being such a pleasure to deal with! We have rented many places and this was by far one of the best experiences!”
“We have rented houses in many parts of France over the years and have never found one as perfect as this house high on the hill in the Périgord. In putting this house together, Judith has thought of everything.”
Joan & Huntley B.
“The hay has been cut and rolled into neat balls, the cherries are almost ready to eat, the pool a perfect temperature, your garden lovely, and a little fox came by while we were having breakfast.”
“How thrilled we were when we drove up the track, got to the top of the hill and looked down on that beautiful house in the middle of the field. When we got down to it, we just walked around taking photos from every angle, it just looks so magical and exceeded my expectations. During our stay we only ate out one night and loved the terrace table. We would have loved to have had another week there, next time!”
“Ross and I haven’t had such a relaxing and magical vacation in a very long time. The images of Gaurenne don’t do it justice – the flowers, the pool, and the house reflect the love and care you’ve given them. We don’t want to leave.”
