Thank you for such a wonderful stay- our first all together since the girls were born and it was just perfect! We had everything we needed here and the child-friendly bits like cots and high chairs were a real bonus! We even managed a few visits to Sarlat, Plazac & St Leon when we could get the babies out of the pool. Highly recommend them all for a beautiful few hours wandering and delicious lunches.
Thank you Alec, Annie and Nina – it seems like nothing was too much trouble for you to ensure we enjoyed our stay. We would love to come back soon.

We had a wonderful stay here. The Villa had everything we could need and the pool area was a popular hangout for BBQ, late night swimming and star gazing with the kids. Alec et Annie couldn’t have been more welcoming, it felt like we were visiting family. They gave brilliant advice and information. We were able to balance exploring the area and further afield to appreciate the beauty of the Dordogne, canoeing lots, and relaxing at the villa on other days. Would definitely recommend and visit again. Thank you

First of all thank you for your warm welcoming and for allowing us this week to live and move in your wonderful residence “La Perode”. This is our first and hopefully not our last stay in this beautiful house and area of the Dordogne…
We deeply value your hospitality, love, kindness, zeal and passion to serve people like us and from everywhere in a wonderful way. This is very rare and exceptional in these days. Keep that fire burning! We’ve appreciated every moment and will forever treasure this week of rest, peace, refreshment and vacation. In this environment we honestly heard clearer and deeper the voice of God in this heavenly place. We will return to Belgium in a different way, equipped, inspired, changed and reformed.

Thank you for another wonderful stay at La Perode. With the mixed weather we’ve made the most of all the amenities – board games to swimming pool – and have enjoyed the tranquillity of the surrounding villages and countryside. Thank you Annie, Alec and lovely Nina for your hospitality and kindnesses (pest control to sun glasses mender!) Once again, you’ve made us feel very welcome and we’re sorry to leave.

Schitterende locatie met een leuk zwembadgedeelte. Ook de rust en sereniteit is een grote troef. Alec en Annie zijn toegankelijk maar heel discreet. Echt een aanrader!

We had a fantastic week here with the whole family including a 2 year old and a 5 month old. Alec and Annie were extremely welcoming and accommodating to our requests which we are so grateful for. The pool was an absolute joy for everyone and all the little details had been thought of so we could fully relax with the kids. On top of the fantastic house, the location is superb - we had nowhere near enough time to see everything in the region so we will have to come back! Bergerac is beautiful, the many caves are amazing, the village is lovely and the nearby campsite has a little play park which the kids loved. A special holiday that we will not forget. Thank you Alec and Annie

We’ve enjoyed a wonderful two weeks at La Perode, there’s been fabulous sunshine and cooling storms. We visited a few local towns / villages – mostly for the shopping but found Le Bugue to be beautiful to walk around. The aquarium and caves were great to visit on rainy days. Our two girls (4 ½ years and almost 3 yrs) have made the most of the pool and loved every minute. They’rs going to miss the pool, the fresh fruit from Annie and saying ‘bonjour’ to Nina as they run past! A truly wonderful family holiday, thank you.

Thanks Alec and Annie for a lovely stay in your wonderful house. Everything was superb – the pool, the accommodation, the surrounding area, your hospitality – thank you! The only negative is that we can’t take Nina back to England with us. Thanks again and I’m sure we’ll see you next year.

A huge thank you to Alec and Annie for your tremendous hospitality and for being the perfect hosts. We had a wonderful stay and the weather was great. We especially loved the beautiful pool area and found the kitchen to be very well equipped. We had lots of fun playing table tennis too. We walked to the village a few times – good exercise after all the delicious bread & cheese we consumed at lunchtimes. The Marche Gourmande night was a real highlight – like a massive street party where the whole community could eat, drink and even dance together. We tried to visit the Château L’Herme but it’s closed for renovation until further notice but totally recommend the Château De Losse which is strikingly beautiful & has magnificent gardens. It’s not too large and close-by (in Thonac). Les Eyzies is well worth a visit – not just for the museum but for some good souvenir shops (very nice silver jewellery). We also thoroughly enjoyed a visit to the Grotte de Rouffignac to see the fantastic drawings by the prehistoric people who lived in the area – the children will love the train ride but wrap up – it’s chilly. We arrived at 10.30 but couldn’t get the train until 2.30 so we spent time in nearby Plazac with it’s medieval church – well worth a visit! We’re very sorry to go but hope to return one day…

Thank you for a wonderful stay, again. Your hospitality is just what we needed. The weather has been perfect, even the thunderstorms were a sight to see. The sunsets are amazing. We have thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in this wonderful gite. See you soon.

Thanks for having us Alec & Annie – more memories made. You guys are so thoughtful, which makes our stay here even more special. Sad to be leaving. Looking forward to seeing you again and meeting the new addition.

Just to say what an amazing week we had!! It was worth the wait!! (Covid)
It was the most relaxing week - Alec and Annie were fantastic hosts!!
The gite has everything you need and the pool area is amazing, no need to go anywhere else it’s fully equipped, the village is a 20min walk with a lovely market and bars / restaurants. Thank you again for a lovely week and especially for accommodating Barney!!

Wir waren zu Acht, vier Erwachsene, vier Kinder zwischen 12-14 Jahre. Highlight war natürlich der Pool, die Tischtennisplatte sowie für uns Erwachsene die überdachte Sitz- und Grillecke mit einem immer toll gefüllten Kühlschrank.

Die Küche im Haus mit Sitzgelegenheiten ist für acht Personen etwas eng. Aber wenn das Wetter top ist, verbringt man die meiste Zeit eh am Pool oder im Garten, der im Übrigen auch einen schönen Zugang zum Waldweg hat.

Die Schlafzimmer und Badezimmer waren im guten Zustand. Das einzige was etwas irritierte war die Spülmaschine, bei der man nie genau wusste wann sie mit dem Spülgang fertig war.

Alec und Annie sind hervorragende Gastgeber, die ihr privates Domizil im Nebenhaus haben. Sie lassen einen komplett in Ruhe und nur bei Fragen sind sie mit ihrer britischen Höflichkeit äußerst zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit.

Super semaine en Dordogne

Nous avons passé une très bonne semaine entre amis. Pas beaucoup de chance avec la météo mais cest pas grave, nous avons quand même profité de la piscine, du barbecue et de la table de ping pong. Alec et Annie sont très très gentils, discrets et nous les remercions pour leur accueil. La maison est très agréable, nous recommandons !

*************************************************************Nous avons loué la maison avec plusieurs amis. La maison est superbe et très bien équipé, Alec et Annie sont adorables, disponibles et discrets. Nous avons passé une merveilleuse semaine, et nous reviendrons avec plaisir.

Superbe séjour en famille avec enfants en bas âge. La piscine et le pool house sont top, et la maison est bien situé dans un petit village sympathique. Annie et Alec, les propriétaires, nous ont très bien acceuilli, bref que du bonheur lors de ce séjour d’une semaine.

Don’t want to leave !! What a fantastic time we’ve had here at La Perode! I think we’ve exhausted the word “heaven”. This part of the Dordogne has so much to see and do but considering the circumstances we have been on cloud nine just to enjoy the gite and pool area. So well equipped!!! Alec and Annie are beyond thoughtful. You made our boy’s 10th birthday one to remember. Eternally grateful. Alexis, Rob, Stanley & Penelope x
We as a family have had a most releaxing and enjoyable stay at La Perode. Our grandchildren have thoroughy enjoyed the pool and their swimming has come on in leaps and bounds. We love the Dordogne as there is so much to explore but we needed to relax, which we’ve cetainly managed to do. Thank you Alec and Annie for your wonderful welcome and sharing your beautiful home with us. We will return in a couple of years. Mandy & Cliff

The accommodation and facilities were first class, there was nothing I could fault! The gite was equipped with everything you could possibly need and more. Highlight must be the superb swimming pool with outside kitchen area, we literally spent the whole week enjoying having this fabulous area all to ourselves. We have already booked to return in 2022 and would not hesitate to highly recommend to others. Alec et Annie were lovely hosts who made us feel very welcome. Rouffignac is a pretty little town with all the amenities you need. We ate at the nearby campsite restaurant a couple of times which was very pleasant. Everything you need is within walking distance, although we didn’t venture out very often as the gite and pool were too nice to leave!

C’est avec regret que nous reprenons la route du retour. Notre séjour dans votre magnifique maison nous a tous enchantés. Tout était parfait: votre accueil, l’équipement des différentes pieces, la literie, la piscine sécurisée, la cuising extérieure, les jeux pour tous, la documentation à jour, votre discrétion tout en étant présents. De plus, la region est très belle et elle offre de nombreuses opportunités. Des vacances à recommander.

Un grand merci pour votre accueil à La Pérode. Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans votre magnifique maison si bien restaurée. L’espace piscine est superbe. Tout y est pour passer d’excellentes journées avec les enfants quand le temps s’y prete! La cuisine parfaitement équipée et surtout un barbecue de compétition qui permet de faire d’exquisite côtes de boeuf! La région est superbe. Nous connaissons le sud du Périgord Noir, cette semaine nous a permis de découvrir cette magnifique partie de la Dordogne reconnue pour ses multiples grottes. La grotte de Rouffignac est à visiter, un heure de visite en train électrique qui a beaucoup plu aux enfants (6 et 9 ans). Nous avons aussi visité le gouffre de Poumeyssac qui est spectaculaire, les enfants ont pu découvrir le canoë sur la Vézère qui se prête parfaitement aux débutants. Nous avons aussi pu faire de la marche autour de Fanlac, un superbe village - comme Saint Léon sur Vezere. Il reste encore beaucoup de sites à découvrir tant la région est riche, une bonne excuse pour revenir bientôt c’est certain! Encore merci à Alec et Annie, d’avoir rendu notre séjour inoubliable!

Thank you for making us feel so welcome during our stay at La Perode. We’ve loved the pool, especially on the hot, hot days, and enjoyed pottering about around the lanes picking plums and blackberries. Thank you for being so kind with Florence and Hannah, humouring their endless chatter and 20 questions! Both you and this holiday will stay in their memories. Days out we’ve particularly enjoyed: Rouffignac caves, Maison Forte de Reignac, Chateau de Commarque and a beautiful canoe trip from Thonac to St Leon sur Vezere. We’ve also enjoyed our morning excursions to collect still-warm bread and croissants from the (local) campsite. Good luck with the Grand Wall of La Perode!

If the weather had been cooler we would have done more walks in the Balades et Randonnées folder. We did walks from Fanlac & Plazac and both villages have pleasant, friendly restaurants to recover. In Rouffignac the Sunday market and the ‘Gormande Nocturne’ were good fun. The boucherie and epicerie supply good meat and groceries – the butcher is very jolly in his red apron and beret! We couldn’t have asked for more from Annie, Alec and La Perode – a wonderful setting for a family holiday. Thank you.

Our return to La Perode didn’t dissapoint! Some highlights were:
Canoeing down the river from St Leon sur Vezere; Quercyland for water slides and fun; Gourmande evening every Wednesday (arrive about 6.30pm to get a table & bring your own cutlery and glasses); Look out for local brocantes for some interesting finds…
Alec and Annie, we have had a wondeful stay, again, and hope to return in the future.

We’ve had a great two weeks. Beautiful area to explore, enjoyed the local caves and Perigueux, a lovely city. Alec & Annie were great hosts. The pool area is amazing and spent most of our time up there relaxing.

July 2019

A great two weeks at La Perode. It was so hot (hitting 46DegC on one day) that we spent most of the time at the pool. However, a couple of places which are good to visit:
Montignac – a pretty town with lots of restaurants & a lovely ice cream shop. Le Bos – a campsite near Le Bugue which has a big lake with ‘Total Wipe Out’ style inflatables. Also swimming pools and slides. Good for kids but lake & slides open at 1.00 and 2.00pm respectively. About €10pp + little kids are free.
Alec & Annie were great hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Many thanks for looking after us!

Another fabulous time at La Perode – this time for two weeks. First week with family, second week with friends (& Sally the dog). Spent a lot of time in the pool due to the heat wave. Sunday market in the village was great. Ate three meals at the Bleu Soliel campsite – very nice. Thank you again Alec and Annie for your hospitality and good luck with the ongoing restoration.
Dawn & Brian

Thank you Alec and Annie for letting us share your beautiful home. What an amazing place. For a naturalist like me La Perode is paradise. It has been a very special week and being able to relax and get away from it all, doing the things I love has been great therapy for me, helping me get over the loss of my Andy. He would have loved it here too. Best wishes. Jane Ashall

Thank you for sharing your villa with us and the warm welcome you gave us.
The lovely pool was enjoyed by all and is the best place to spend the sunny
days with our children / grandchildren. It is such a lovely area with many
diverse villages to explore. A great time was had by us, our son and
daughter-in-law and three grandchildren during our stay at La Perode. The
Area is outstanding with so many lovely villages and towns to visit and the
facilities provided at La Perode met everything we were looking for. I
would have no hesitation in recommending La Perode to others. The Howard
family, Worthing UK August 2017
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour à la Pérode.
Annie et Alec, votre propriété et le cadre qui l’entoure sont magnifiques.
La maison est très fonctionnelle pour se retrouver en famille ou entre amis (beaucoup de chambres + 3 salles de bains) ce qui a permis à chacun d’avoir son espace.
L’espace piscine est formidable : cuisine d’été, barbecue Weber, réfrigérateur, vaisselle, évier, des sanitaires (wc + douche), etc… + détente avec la piscine chauffée, la table de ping-pong, et d’autres jeux.. Tout le nécessaire pour y passer des moments très agréables.
De plus, le village de Rouffignac permet de se ravitailler sans aller trop loin (petit supermarché, boucher, boulanger, restaurant, marché le dimanche matin…). Il est aussi situé près de nombreux sites touristiques.
Merci Annie et Alec pour votre accueil. Nous espérons revenir très vite.
Sandra, Olivier et famille, Rouen May 2018
Thank you for letting us stay in your super house. We had a wonderful time. We had fun exploring the local area / various markets / neolithic caves and (some of us) braved a day kayaking. Your pool and BBQ are brilliant! You have been most gracious and courteous hosts. We will be back!
La Perode is lovely, with plenty of room to have your own space as couples if you want to, and all the facilities you need for hot days up at the pool. There’s easy access to everyday shops, and more than enough to see and do within an hour’s drive. Alec and Annie are gracious and helpful yet unobtrusive hosts, and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend a stay. 5* rating.
Tim, Heather & family, UK June 2018
Thank you for a wonderful week. The gite is fabulous and we really enjoyed the
pool and all it’s facilities. Very convenient to order daily bread at the local
campsite and had two lovely (evening) meals there also.
The Moody's & Kennedy's, UK June 2018
Lovely location, very quiet with some walks straight from accommodation. Very comfortable well equipped villa with good sleeping facilities. Very friendly and helpful owners, who made us feel very welcome. Great swimming pool complex with lovely eating area for lunch and evenings. Lovely local village within walking distance, convenient supermarket and boulangerie.
We arrived on Bastille day and went to Les Eyzies for the fireworks. Also used Les E. as start for a couple of canoing trips down the river. Some advice for any golfers: played 5 times during our stay and would rate the courses we played as follows –
La Lolivarie G.C is about 45 minutes due south. Long course in good condition. Book online for best deals.
Cahreau les Merles is also about 45 minutes and 15 minutes from Bergerac. Truly awful 9 hole course!
Bluegreen la Marterie is 20 minutes away. Good course but plagued by swarms of flies when we played.
Golf Publique de Perigueux is an attractive course half an hour away and in reasonable condition. Greens good, fairways rather barren.
The Gough family, Cheshire, UK July 2018
Had a lovely holiday. Alec & Annie made us very welcome. Managed to get out and about despite the temp. reaching near 40ᵅC! (most days). Here are a few favourites – Montignac, Sarlat (evening), Domme, La Roche Gageac, Bergerac, St Leon sur vezere, Chateau de Losse. Big Bird highwire for the adventurous youngsters (Sophie aged 11 and Evelyn, 9). Reserve zoologique de Calviac for the smallest guest (George, aged 3) was a big hit! Canoeing on the river Vezere was more sheltered in the heat of the day. Rouffignac Sunday market – very good – also enjoyed the gourmet evening on Wednesdays. Every day a pool day. Thank you so much Annie & Alec.
Brian & Janet, Richard, Karen, Sophie & Evelyn, Katie, Chris & George, Ilkley, UK August 2018
A lovely holiday for all the family. La Perode suited our needs perfectly. We especially enjoyed being able to base ourselves in the pool area for part of the day. I cannot think of anything that we needed that was not supplied. Many thanks to Alec and Annie.
It was epic and thanks so much – Joseph (9)
I loved the games and the swimming pool – Jacob (6)
The Chalks, Spencers and Sleighs, Norfolk, UK August 2018
On behalf of the Hughes family (8 adults and two babies) we would like to give our sincere thanks to Alec & Annie for sharing their home with us, in the most idyllic setting here in La Perode. Their hospitality is marvellous, on hand to sort out any problems & give out advice and general information regarding the area. The pool area ‘took a bashing’ as we were blessed with the weather. We made full use of the facilities & nice to go home ready to face the UK weather, if that’s possible. We wish them luck for their home and we will pass on info’ to friends and family.
The Hughes family, Cardiff, Wales September 2018
We had very varied weather for two weeks. Pleasantly warm, cool, incredibly
hot (38DegC at hottest) and rain on our last day. But the children swam in
the lovely pool every day as the cover maintains warm water. We have
enjoyed ourselves going to the cave (with train) in Rouffignac to see the
mammoths, horses, etc, painted on the walls ? but all in French. We also
went to the caves in Grand Roc which was excellent, with a lovely guide who
answered the children?s questions in English. We went to the museum in
Les Eyzies, which was good, and for the children to the per-histo park
which they enjoyed. We really enjoyed our boat trip on the Dordogne at La
Roche Gageac which was about 50 minutes and the scenery is lovely.
Castelnaud was a great success ? very professional but fun. We were a
very mixed age group but one thing we all agreed upon was the super pool
area and the facilities to eat outside at various spots. We also enjoyed
the walks available nearby the gite. We would all like to thank our
hospitable and helpful hosts Alec & Annie

A very warm welcome from Alec & Annie. Beautifully restored farmhouse -
lovely bedrooms - 1st class facilities. Large pool - enjoyed by all - ample
space for outside eating. Recommend the local market square food gathering
on a Wednesday night in August! 3 families spent a fantastic week here. We
really liked the barbecue/ kitchen area by the pool. Great for relaxed
dining after a day exploring. Alec and Annie are generous hosts who went
out of their way to ensure we all had a great time. Would thoroughly
recommend spending time here. From the Browns, Woodhouses and Lucas
families, Haworth, West Yorkshire August 2017

8 of us had a family meet up. The pool area & extensive pool facilities
were the centrepiece for the children 4,8,10 while the adults swam. read,
dozed & enjoyed the BBQ & cool rose wine from the handy fridge. Rouffignac
served all our immediate needs especially the daily bread and pastries!
Nearby caves and rivers were visits which suited all. Our hosts Alec and
Annie were unobtrusive but always responsive to the slightest request &
have extensive local knowledge. A great holiday. Valerie & Roger, Fiona,

We have just returned from an amazing 2 week stay at La Perode. We were 2
families, 4 adults and 6 children, sharing the house. The accommodation was
perfect and provided all the things we needed for our stay. The beautiful
weather meant we spent most of our time relaxing by the beautiful pool.
Alec and Annie were fantastic hosts, always happy to help with any problems
or questions about the local area. We would definitely recommend a stay at
La Perode and hope we can return in the future. Tim, Paula, Lucy, Emily
