person found this review helpful

We've just returned home after a week long stay at Caminade and had the most relaxing and enjoyable holiday. The property was lovely and comfortable, the facilities were excellent, the information booklet was helpful. Wonderful to have the access to the wi-fi, the pool, the ping pong table and the garden space. Most of all, Lynette and Dave were so friendly and helpful that we felt safe and well looked after - thank you so much. Also, thank you to Poppy, for playing with us by the pool and helping us pick up the table tennis balls! We'd like to take our dog, Bella, next time!

“Simply Perfect”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A fantastic gite in a rural location, within easy access of local towns and supermarkets. The kitchen is very well equipped there is nothing the owners haven't thought of, the bedrooms are also very tastefully decorated and both ensuite. The gite and pool is spotlessly clean and regularly maintained. We travelled as a family of 4 with 2 children (10 & 12 yrs) the children loved every minute and had great fun in the pool especially with Poppy joining in every now and again with the ball games. The owners live on site which is such a benefit as they are on hand to answer any queries but leave you to your own devices. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property it truly is a hidden gem, thank you for a fabulous holiday.

Thank you for a great review much appreciated. It was lovely to have you and your great family stay at Caminade. James our grandson enjoyed the company of your children. It would be lovely to have you all stop again at some time in the future.

“Peaceful and relaxing”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Just returned from a weeks stay in this fantastic little gite. It is extremely well equipped and feels far bigger than the pictures make out. It had everything we needed and much more. Its out of the way enough to be unbelievably peaceful but close enough to some beautiful towns to venture into. We loved the markets and would recommend to anyone visiting.

If i had to fault anything, the wifi signal wasn't great on our apple devices and we could only get a strong signal by the tv. That said you go here to get away from the world and enjoy the fantastic surroundings rather than using the internet!

Lyn & Dave are absolutely fantastic hosts and couldn't do enough for you. This made the trip feel really special and would be one of the main reasons i would return again.

Thank you for such a great holiday.

“Wonderful Gite I a Beautiful Location”
Reviewed June 21, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

So, you get off the plane at Bergerac, you jump in the hire car, and you head off eastwards up the Dordogne and you pay a fortune to stay in a barn luxuriously transformed into a London Docklands modern gite with bits of oak and stone highlighted and preserved, and by golly, you pay a lot of money for it! Well here is some advice from someone who has given the Dordogne a good going over. Caminade is a 2 en-suite bedroomed down to,earth REAL conversion that gives you all you need to have a wonderful break without the tourist prices, yet within easy reach of all of the well- known venues. The recently completed autoroute means you can be in Perigueux in 40 minutes, and Domme in 80 minutes. It is honest working country with vineyards in the Bergerac, Montravel and Montagnes de St. Emilion appellations. The Dordogne sweeps gracefully by 13 km to the south, whilst in the north the tragically bare-boned Montpon offers a starker view of life in this part of rural France. It is honest and full of character. We have stayed here on at least a dozen occasions having stayed in much more grandiose gites. We always come back here because it feels much more comfortable and we feel more at ease. Lynnette is the boss, whilst Dave goes out to work as a builder/tiler, and if you want company you get it, yet if you prefer solitude, it's yours. If you like coarse fishing there is a lake full of Carp, goldfish, crayfish and coypu (if you want a fur coat). The family pets are characters too. Poppy is the collie , Clarissa the reticent but loving cat, and Sid is the bent-tailed wandering Tom who arrived and decided to stay. I feel as if I am doing myself a disfavour by reviewing like this because we love it and like to come twice a year, however each year Caminade moves up a notch in terms of appointment and comfort. Hoopoes abound, redstarts in the barn, salamanders on the doormat, huge toads in the grass, lizards on the tiles, tree frogs where you would expect them, humming bird moths around the flowers; a nature lovers dream! Unreserved recommendation!! A lovely gite with all you could wish for. And on a clear night you can see the Milky Way in a manner that belies any attempt in the UK. Love it!

“Ideal for an extended winter holiday”
Reviewed March 5, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Thank you Lynette and Dave for letting us stay in your lovely gite for 5 whole weeks! The gite is very comfortable and easily warm enough for a winter stay. A pity that the weather was so wet, and that we didn't get out as much as we had planned to, but we enjoyed the break none the less. Ozzy also enjoyed playing with Poppy, when she decided that she didn't mind him jumping all over her after all! If we plan another trip down your way, you will be the first port of call to see if the gite is available. Thanks again
