A holiday is for many the highlight of the year. You can relax and explore another country. For one’s holiday choice it is therefore nice to read experiences from other guests. In that way you see what they liked about their stay here, at La Cipière.

“Terrace with nice view!”

We have spent a very pleasant holiday in the gîte Rossignol. Rossignol was spacious and well equipped with all mod cons. The gîte  is attractively furnished, with a clean, new and spacious bathroom and kitchen.

The terrace is beautifully situated with a view over the valley and in the morning you can enjoy the sun. The garden offers plenty of opportunities to seek shade, or to rest in the hammock. The garden has a swing, a petanque court and a badminton net.

The gte is in a very quiet location, but there are plenty of places to visit in the vicinity (10-15 minutes drive). For example, we visited the gardens of Eyrignac and together with the owners we made a beautiful walk in the area. Jeroen and Corinne are hospitable and are ready to give tips about possible activities.

“The view from the window was super nice.”

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Cipière. The cottage was equipped with the necessary comfort with a very comfortable kitchen and a very good internet connection. The pool and garden were a real added value. The gite is in a beautiful setting. The view from the window was super nice. Nearby were several nice towns and tourist attractions. We visited La Roque Saint-Christophe, the caves of Lascaux and Château de Milandes. The latter is highly recommended. The castle itself is a museum and the gardens are beautiful. Even with rainy weather, there are still various activities possible in the area. It was a nice week in a beautiful region. Maybe we'll come back again.

“We felt right at home there.”

The five of us have enjoyed a great holiday at La Cipiere for two weeks. On arrival we were already surprised by the beautiful view and the location of La Cipiere on top of a hill with a wide view at the front and behind a lovely area full of flowers, trees, plenty of play area and a beautifully landscaped swimming pool where we can spend a lot of time with the children having fun. Le Hibou is a nice, spacious gite, equipped with everything you need. We immediately felt at home. We also found the music evening that Jeroen and Corinne had organized with singer and guitarist and the other people present from the area very nice and atmospheric. Really enjoyed it! At La Cipiere you are located in the middle of just about all the attractions of the Dordogne. There is so much to do in the area! Nature, culture, history, being active, cosy places, good food. Something for everyone and certainly plenty to discover for us in the future.

Jeroen and Corinne, our compliments for what you have built up with La Cipiere. Your hospitality made us all feel right at home. On behalf of all of us, a big thank you and who knows… see you next time!

We were able to spend a day sculpting, which was great fun!

 

La Cipière is a great base for many activities and visiting villages in the area. We were everywhere within half an hour! Great!

Here also a small word from our 3 children: It was a beautiful, well-kept swimming pool and Corinne helped us tremendously with the sculpting in her workshop.

We thought it was great fun. When we left very early in the morning, we easily saw 10 deer on the way home.  What a spectacle!  We would love to come back!

“The sound of the roaring deer is overwhelming ”

What we found at and around La Cipière was even more than we had hoped for. The gîte (l'Hirondelle) was comfortable, equipped with the conveniences to which we are accustomed, had a good internet connection and, above all, bordered on a garden with the quality of an arboretum. Sometimes it was so difficult to choose from the abundance of TV channels that the best way to escape from it was to read a good book, which was also stimulated by the tranquillity of the surroundings.

The gite was also well situated for what we wanted to see. The Musée National de Préhistoire in Les Eyzies is nearby, as well as the ancient cliff dwellings of La Madeleine and Roque St. Christophe, castles such like as Commarque. And a bit further away, the medieval town Sarlat and the pilgrimage town Rocamadour can be visited easily.

The pleasant, non-coercive helpfulness of Corinne and Jeroen should also be mentioned.

But the first thing that will always come to mind when we think of our stay at La Cipière are the roaring deer. Is there anything that better demonstrates the tranquillity of an environment than animals being able to indulge their restlessness like that?
