This was our second summer visit and, again, it was lovely. Gary & Suzie are helpful, friendly and considerate hosts and made us feel welcome. D&BS, Manchester, UK (August 2018)
Thank you Suzie & Gary for a lovely break. Both La Chataigne and La Grange were perfect for 3 generations of the Smith family. We loved Sarlat, Beynac and the beautiful panoramic gardens at Limeuil, this is a truly wonderful part of France. We ate at both restaurants in the village and they both catered well for our large group of 16. The facilities were spot on and the welcome pack was the best we’ve ever experienced. Gary and Suzie were the perfect hosts, being generous with their time and attentive to our questions. This kids adored the pool and we all agreed we would love to come back A&S, Kent, UK (June 2018).
Thank you Suzie & Gary for a wonderful week. Everything was perfect and the family all said it was among the best week of their lives!! ! ALS, Sydney, Australia (June 2018).
Many thanks Suzie & Gary for making us so welcome and enabling us to have a wonderful week, sharing a memorable ‘birthday holiday’ with our daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren. It is a beautiful location with outstanding facilities, both inside & outside. The swimming pool was ideal and thanks to the good weather, the children were able to make good use of it and have a lot of fun. The older folk also had a wonderful break, visiting some of the beautiful villages and historic sites in the vicinity. Merci beaucoup! J&AL, Abingdon, UK (May 2017)
Just had a fantastic holiday at Les Taloches. The house was gorgeous, so unique and full of character. Plenty of room for 7 adults and 3 children, with space to spare. The pool, play area and games room kept us all busy. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. They made us feel very at home and went the extra to make our holiday special. Would love to go back and would definitely recommend. KS, West Sussex, UK (August 2016)
Our family had the most amazing time here, Suzie and Gary couldn’t do enough for us, and the house and pool were just perfect. Five star holiday experience. ST, Dorset, UK (July 2016)

We had the most amazing time EVER. Thanks to your friendliness. The pool was lovely and the beds were so comfy. A&T, Dorset, UK (July 2016)
We have had an amazing two weeks holiday at La Châtaigne. The pool, the sunshine and the terrace have made this a wonderful holiday place for all of us. Suzie & Gary have been kindness itself – booking activities for us and being extraordinary hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. We loved La Châtaigne. Thank you both. J&MT, Dorset, UK, UK (July 2016)
What a wonderful place! Tranquil and beautiful area. The houses are just amazing, spotlessly clean with every need catered for, from babies to adults. Thank you Suzie and Gary – we will be back!! P&MH, Ealing, UK (June 2016)
A really lovely holiday. Totally relaxing. The children were fully occupied in the pool and play-ground. Adults were able to really chill out with no worries. Can’t wait to come back. TD, Somerset, UK

We have had a wonderful time – comfortable and beautiful house and grounds. We have enjoyed biking around. K&MT, Bucks, UK
Three generations here and plenty of space for us all – everyone from 10 month to 72 thoroughly enjoyed every aspect. A P Leicester, UK
Superbe maison! Un petit paradis pour les petits comme pour les grands. Quel plaisir de partager des vacances en famille dans un lieu aussi agréable et chaleureux. J-D T, Nantes, France
Les Taloches was a great place to base ourselves to explore the Dordogne on motorbikes. Our group consisted of 4 motorbikes 4 riders and a pillion.Each day we had a leisurely ride out visiting places like Perigueux on market day, Brantome, Hauteforte and Chateau du Nord, with stops for coffee in some very picturesque villages. The roads are well maintained and much quieter compared to the UK with fantastic scenery. The pool was wonderful after warm September days when we were happy to get our bike gear off and relax and cool off. Suzie and Gary couldn’t do enough to make us welcome, with helpful tips on places to visit and local restaurants. RJ, Essex, UK (September 2018)
Nous avons passe un excellent week-end, tout eat parfait. La maison eat incroyablement bien equipe, et magnifique! Merci pour votre accuel tres chaleureux. JJ, Bordeaux, France (June 2017)
Thanks for a wonderful week. Couldn’t be nicer. Wonderful scenery, comfortable bed, hospitality couldn’t be better. Lemon drizzle cake a treat!MC, Gwent, UK (July 2017)
It has been the perfect holiday – the location couldn’t be more beautiful and restful. Thank you for providing everything we could possibly need from cots to advice about brilliant outings. The house is perfection!EJ, London, UK (July 2017)
We had a fantastic week. The wedding, the family get-together the following day at our amazing holiday home, the scenery, the people, the food, France itself, were all a joy. I promised Suzie and Gary, the lovely new owners of Les Taloches, who couldn’t have been kinder and more helpful, that I would spread the word and this is my effort (and, no, I’m not on commission, honestly!). Family members, who hadn’t been on holiday in France before, were so taken with it, they are planning to return next year. As son no. 1 said, “If this is to be your last self-catering holiday, it might as well be somewhere this special” and, do you know, it was, it really was.
PS I did say to you that my wheels mostly grind extremely slowly so, for this post to be done only a week after our return, is pretty phenomenal for me and is a testament to you both and not just because of the gorgeous lemon drizzle cake you so kindly baked for us, Suzie; honest!!! We wish you every success in your venture. You deserve it. JC (July 2016) http://jconvey.blogspot.fr/2016/08/on-our-self-catering-idyll-in-dordogne.html
Absolutely loved this place, we couldn’t fault it. It had everything you could possibly want for a perfect family holiday. The highlight was the huge private swimming pool, we have booked again for next year. A&PR, Essex, UK (May 2016)
WONDERFUL holiday at Les Taloches. We stayed at Le Grange which was simply stunning! There were 8 of us (two families of 4) and so much room. Beautiful decor, lots of space, lovely swimming pool. There is also a large barn which is full of games for children of all ages……our children were entertained for hours whilst we got to relax and enjoy! The owners were wonderful – best welcome pack ever! Highly recommend and will certainly be returning. SS, Kent, UK (June 2016)
A HUGE THANK YOU for a fabulous holiday, it was so relaxing for everyone, you have everything covered your end for us adults to completely chill out! A & K, Wales
Thanks for such a lovely well-equpped house. We have had a great holiday – plenty to keep everyone busy. We have barely seen the kids who have loved the space to play and explore – Many games of ‘Harry Potter’ were played. J & A London, UK
