Dear Liv and Lily,
We love your video of your holiday here at Domaine de Peyrecaty. Every time we watch it, we feel sunny and happy, thank you for sharing it and reminding us of happy memories xx

Hope all is well and the sun continues to shine!… attached a few snaps from our holiday and a few of the lovely memories. Cheers



We had such an amazing holiday, thank you :)  We have some serious holiday blues though!! We are excited already (to be returning next summer)!! :)

 Esther and family

We cannot thank you enough for a truly wonderful week. We all had a fabulous time :)  Huge huge thanks for everything! Much love



Well, well…… always, it was such a treat to be with you again over the last two weeks, and thank you… always…..for your kindness and friendship to all of us… I had the most marvellous time and I am extremely glad that I decided at the last minute to come after all. Summers would not be the same without you! I know what a difficult season you have had this year, but I am very impressed that you made sure that things were as normal as possible for all of the guests: the Peyrecaty bubble of happiness surrounded by a very strange world. So well done you for making it so, and in the process giving much pleasure to so many. As ever, my kindest regards


Thank you very much for another wonderful holiday. We all had a lovely time and the kids really appreciated feeling normal! Yes we definitely want to come again next year. Enjoy the rest of the summer.


Jo, Simon, Alex and Sophia

We’ve all had the most wonderful time, it was so good to feel normal again and all have the freedom to enjoy. It was very much needed! We would LOVE to come back next year… and can not wait to see you again.



We had another wonderful holiday, thank you so much for a really special time… We honestly had THE best time… deposit transferred for next year’s holiday… enjoy the rest of the summer!



we had a fabulous time at Peyrecaty!  Thank you again and hopefully see you soon.

Victoria and Andrew

Thank you for a lovely 2 weeks, we had a great time and it was a welcome escape from all that was going on in UK! Many thanks


Thanks for another fab week… here are a selection of photos Lots of love


Jenny x

Thank you so much for a great week, we really enjoyed it and so did the children who are most upset about not being in her holiday home! – thank you for your lovely hospitality.


Domaine de Peyrecaty is a wonderful holiday for families


Comparing our resent holiday to Peyrecaty. The place (we went too) was nice, modern, they have a pool (!) and a large toy barn… However, they lack… the morning croissants, and the group barbecues, bar, etc. Basically, they lack the warmth and professionalism and competence of H&S (and you can quote me on that). To surmise we have many happy memories of Peyrecaty and our two elder daughters are now big Terry Pratchett fans, as a result of books they started to read at Peyrecaty.

James & Ann + 4

We had a wonderful holiday, the most relaxed one we’ve had since the children came along!

The Snowballs

Thank you so much for making us so welcome and for looking after us so well. The kids are already desperate to come back! We had a fantastic time, thank you… see you next year!

Louisa x

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday with you and would recommend Peyrecaty to anyone who wants a super venue for parents and children alike – and of course in our case, grandparents too! Altogether a huge success!! Hopefully we shall return!! Thank you,

Jan & family

A big thank you to you! We’re still raving about our wonderful holiday with you ☀️ :) You were perfect hosts and have nailed the stress free kiddy holiday, so thank you!

Paula xx

Thank you much for a fabulous holiday, we really had such a wonderful time.  The house was great and watching the sunset on the beautiful terrace was magical. The kids so enjoyed the sandpit, toy barn and swimming pool and are still talking about the friends they met! We would love to return… I can now see why you are so popular! I wish I was still there!

Lee xx

We had such a lovely time, we all agreed it was the best holiday we’ve ever had as a family.

Tess x

Thank you both so much for another fabulous holiday. We all had an amazing time and were so sad to leave. The kids have constructed a Playmobil Peyrecaty. Once again, thank you for making our holiday.

Nicola & family

The accommodation, facilities and surrounding area were a perfect recipe for a successful family holiday.


You’ve nailed it!



Holiday without bored teenagers, never thought I’d see the day, bliss at last, thank you.

G & A – Ireland

We came here for 3 years on the trot, then thought we’d try somewhere different, but the following year we came back here to Domaine de Peyrecaty. There really is no where better than this… there is something for everyone. There is something special about this place, it is so relaxing, great for families of all ages, the views are amazing. The bar is great and an added bonus to such a brilliant place. You have it all here. Thank you and we’ll see you again next year.


Thank you for giving us a fantastic holiday at Peyrecaty – it’s been just perfect – the location is fantastic and your estate of Peyrecaty, well, is just magnificent, the views you have here are stunning and we can’t believe how peaceful it is here. We’ve had a truly fantastic holiday and can’t thank you enough. We’ll be back.

M – America

The testimonials on your web site played a part in our selection of Peyrecaty for our two week summer holiday this year. I have to say that I can but concur with all of the previous testimonials and more. Right from my very first enquiry you have demonstrated excellent communication, clarity of information and service. Once we arrived you made us feel welcome and appreciated throughout our stay. The environment you have created is perfect for a family holiday – great location, variety of touristy things and history and culture… lots to do on site, safe for kids at all times; great place to meet new people and new friends yet as secluded and private as you wish. Above all, the service you provide allows me to honestly say that it is the first time that we have had two weeks away with the kids where we have actually relaxed and have been able to enjoy a HOLIDAY. Thank you and you will definitely see us again.

Asgar, Beverly, Megan and Zara (AKA La Petite Monster)

We had the most amazing week in Peyrecaty. We cannot recommend you more highly as incredible hosts. You have created a wonderfully safe, relaxing and enjoyable site in the most stunning area, and we truly had a wonderful time. So much so, that we would love to return!

Jenni & Nigel

Thank you for another glorious two weeks spent at Peyrecaty. We truly love our holidays with you and so do the children – as Daniel said on more than one occasion, it’s his idea of paradise and he wants to live there!

Sally & Allistair xx

Fantastic accommodation & facilities for all the family & for all ages. Very warm welcome & help and assistance is always at hand, with nothing being too much trouble. Having come for the first time this year, it is no surprise to us that people return time and time again. We’ve already put our names down for next year and aren’t even home yet!

B & A London

Just wanted to say a really big thank you for a fantastic holiday. Our two weeks definitely exceeded our expectations and we are looking forward to a return visit. The highlights were definitely the canoeing and the bar! It was so nice to have adult conversation in the evening whilst the children all played together and better still we actually got to lie in, I am proud to say we were nearly always last to collect our bakery order in the mornings. You have created the perfect family holiday… Definitely see you soon.

John, Lorraine, Sam, Isobel and Grace x

I’m sure what made it so special was the way you have created such a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere, making it easy to mingle and chat with other guests, whilst still giving the opportunity of having that “away from it all” holiday experience if we fancied a bit of quiet time too. I think the homemade cakes had something to do with it too! Thanks again

Sara, Vernon & Samuel

Great property… perfect for us… I’ll definitely be recommending you to all our friends and will return.

SH – London

Peyrecaty is a wonderful place – we felt totally chilled from the moment we arrived, knowing the kids could play safely with all that was on offer and we could relax, either within the privacy of our own gîte and garden or in the communal area where we all made friends. Stephen and Helen you were the perfect hosts, relaxed and smiling all the time, though who can blame you in such a beautiful setting. I think the highlights of the holiday were swimming in the pool at night under the stars and sightseeing castles and the countryside while canoeing down the Dordogne. We all had a superb time – so thanks very much for giving our family such fantastic memories.

M & J Hollens – Herts

Thank you for making our first visit to Domaine de Peyrecaty so wonderful… we will definitely be back. Your welcome has been warm and friendly without being intrusive and the ‘ambience’ you have created here is matchless, we haven’t felt so rested and relaxed in any of the places we’ve stayed…Both of your organised events, the barbecues and the canoeing, are unmissable and we all had fun at both events over both weeks. When we booked back in January we never imagined the site would be so perfect: the facilities must suit all families and tastes and Belvès is charming. This part of the Dordogne is superb, too…We will take with us some special memories of Peyrecaty and return next year with our appetites whetted.

David & Una

It’s the little touches that are wonderful… you have tried to think of everything and it makes us feel special, thank you …

John and Lisa

It’s not often a holiday exceeds the expectations set by the website – but here at Peyrecaty they do and more!

Happy guest

The children have had a great time and so have we! A great location for families of all ages, plenty to do and we have all met new friends.

N & B Surrey

THANKS so much for an absolutely brilliant holiday, we loved your place and were so pleased at how comfortable and relaxed you made us feel. Thank you again, what a perfect holiday place for us and how lucky you are to be there permanently!!!!

Janet & Ollie xx

We would like to say a big thank you for a wonderful holiday with you. The gîte was everything and more than we could have wished for. We were all made to feel most welcome and Charles is missing all the friends he made…We cannot recommend your estate highly enough and regret not finding it earlier.

N & H North Yorks

It’s a wonderful place especially on BBQ night with all the games and we get to meet everyone. Thank you very much.

Love Molly aged 10

Great place, great pool, great people

Elliot age 10

Fantastic facilities, stunning views, perfect people, superb location. Thank you so much for a wonderful first foreign holiday for our new family. We loved the grounds… and Jack especially adored the play-barn and the wonderful family atmosphere. Thank you!

Love Jack, Emma and David

It was our most relaxing holiday ever (post kids!), so much so that on return to work I had forgotten my computer logon information and the code to Emily’s nursery :) We are looking forward to our return to Peyrecaty next summer

Lisa & family

We had another excellent week at Peyrecaty – thank you so much, as ever. Everyone seemed to get on very well, which was great. For our second week the place (we went onto next) was not a patch on Peyrecaty… can’t wait for next summer to see you then!

love Clare and family

We had a wonderful stay and were really impressed with the standard of accommodation.


We have already told everyone we know with kids that they should stay at your perfect place – we truly loved every minute… Especially the kiddies meals, which took the pressure off and provided a ‘safe’ placed for parents to drink merrily! We really loved Peyrecaty and will deffo be back!!! Thanks for a wonderful time.

Love, Dan, Ruthy, and Amy…X

We all had such a great time seeing you again (as we knew we would). You made us feel so welcome from the minute we arrived. We will definitely be back for more… I am envious to think of new guests enjoying the Peyrecaty experience while I am back at home wearing my fleecy jumper to keep warm!

Mags, Michael and the boys xx

We had a truly lovely time in Peyrecaty. You provide something wonderful and unique and it was a pleasure to have stayed there. I would love to come back next year. Thanks again

Love Liza xx

Thank you for another lovely stay at Peyrecaty! Was great to see you again & as previous visits we all had a great time during our stay. Hope you enjoy the rest of your summer & see you again soon!

Best Regards Rich, Rosie and Oliver xxx

Fantastic holiday you’re definitely a level above your competitors, the pool is heated for one and no one else could create the relaxing atmosphere that you both effortlessly seem to manage (the bar probably helps!!!!) I can understand why you have over 70% repeat bookings and all the people we met were really nice and great company…’

Sally, David, Elliot, Jamie, Chloe & Toby x

can’t tell you how much we enjoyed our holiday with you. Your whole set up; the whole experience was wonderful. It had everything I could wish for and a lot more beside. The boys made so many friends and enjoyed themselves just as much as we did. That made for a more relaxing holiday for mum and dad. Your hospitality was brilliant even if you did let me win just the once at cards !!!

Love Helen x

It was just a fabulous holiday… We had looked forward so much to it and thought it would be great …. but it was sooooo much better than that. You have created such a truly wonderful place at Peyrecaty where we have been very fortunate to share 5 holidays with you, thank you both so much. The children have grown up there and it was so good to come back… Where else could you find such a magical place to visit? With much love to you all.

The Reillys x x x x

Must just tell you that a few months ago we were talking about France and Lucy (who was 3 and a half at the time) said “is Steve the King of France”? He clearly made a big impression!

Laura x

Peyrecaty is a very special place. Katie keeps on asking ‘can we go swimming now’?! Thank you for making us feel so welcome – we were really quite nervous about coming to a family friendly resort but the place, along with your tremendous hospitality and some lovely like minded people made it a fantastic holiday. We will definitely be back…

Lisa xxxx

Thanks so much for a truly wonderful holiday.

Marian and Gav

We had such a fabulous week with you again. On the way home, Tom told us that Peyrecaty is better than Disney World!

Lisa xx

Thank you for a wonderful holiday. It’s rare to find somewhere that caters for both kids and parents so well!


we had a fantastic holiday and very much look forward to seeing you guys again and telling all our friends about the wonderful set up you have… Once again thank you for the fantastic holiday.


We felt like welcomed guests… and enjoyed our stay immensely… We have been talking you up–along with to anybody who will listen. I think of you both often, from the welcome Kir, restaurant and foie gras recommendations, and directions to sight-seeing to the lovely and clean accommodations, delicious barbecue picnic and time to spend with you and the other guests sharing good conversations, we felt we were in wonderful hands.  I told you once before that the ease that we, your guests, feel while staying at Domaine de Peyrecaty is due to the hard work and thought that you put into everything you do.

thank you! KBW

Once again, a huge thank you for helping to make our holiday at Peyrecaty such an enjoyable one. Our return trip certainly lived up to all our expectations, and the children had another great time… We hope that memories of a glass or two (or three!) of wine on the terrace in such good company will see us through the winter months until we see you again at Peyrecaty next summer.

Love Jess

Thanks very much again for a fantastic two weeks – it was a genuinely brilliant holiday.  Hope to see you both again.

Chris, Bren, Megan and Evie

I would like to say what a wonderful place you have. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday with you, you really have thought of everything to make it a relaxing and fun place for the whole family. The children loved the pool, play barn and football pitch as did we! The BBQ was fantastic and enjoyed by us all – what a great touch to have a DVD for children while the adults eat! I was also really impressed by the level of cleaning of the villas. It was exceptional and (as I am a bit of clean freak), I really appreciated it! Many thanks again for a wonderful week’s holiday, we hope to come back again and will definitely recommend peyrecaty.

The Jarrett family

We are well and truly back to reality after a fabulous holiday with you. Thank you so much for working so hard to help us have a wonderful time.I have recommended you to everyone and we are very excited to come back next year

Lisa, Sam, Tom, Adam & Tristan xx

I just wanted to say thanks for a wonderful holiday. Your place is beautiful and it was v v relaxing to be somewhere so child friendly with all the necessary kit!


We had a lovely relaxing stay, it was a shame that it could not have been for longer.


Thank you very much for such a lovely stay. We really did have a nice time and wished we had stayed on longer! I think you will be seeing us again – we can discuss next holiday over a brockmans or 2! Until then take care and enjoy the rest of your season!

Amie, Shelly and Evie x

We really had a wonderful time! We will be recommending you highly to all our friends. We also hope to return sometime in the future. Thank you so much for your hospitality.

With love to you both Sally xx

Can I thank you again for making it such a wonderful holiday. We had a fantastic time and the facilities were superb- lots for kids to do, and happy kids means happy parents on holiday!! We’d definitely recommend it to friends.


I just wanted thank you for an absolutely wonderful week at Peyrecaty . Izzy so enjoyed herself both in and out of the pool (when we could extract her from it!) and it was brilliant to have so many other children around. She had an absolute ball – and mummy and daddy got a rest from entertainment duties – bliss!

Tori and Oliver

We are still basking in the Peyrecaty holiday glow. We all had a super time and it’s the magic of the people – guests and you – and the place. We will stay in touch.

Love and best wishes to you all Sue and Paul

We all had a really fantastic time at Peyrecaty. We were just saying on the way back how relaxed we felt. Thank you for hosting us so superbly- we had a great chance to relax and loved everything from the toy barn and bar (!) to the French night- it’s also really nice to know that the kids are safe running around without cars etc. So thanks again it was a special holiday.


Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday. You really are great hosts and have pretty much thought of everything a family could want on holiday! The children had a great time and couldn’t wait to tell their friends. For the first time, Dave and I were able to fully relax on holiday because it’s safe and secure so we didn’t need to worry if they were ever out of our sight.

 Jane xx


You may follow my inane waffle on Twitter. If you don’t, I don’t blame you. But if you do, then you may be aware that I went to France on holiday for my first fortnight’s worth of jolly-days in years. With a tantrum-throwing two and a half year old, plus our six-month old baby, Soneva Fushi or The Banyan Tree isn’t really on our holidaying radar right now. However, we did go to the Dordogne – the place we honeymooned three years ago and completely fell in love with. Back then, it was all champagne, boutique hotels and staying up late. Now, it’s all about soft-play, SPF factor 50 and, OK, wine by the bucket-load for us.

My clever sister-in-law came across this place – and while I can’t say I was as excited as if I had suddenly been whisked off for a weekend in NYC – it looked pretty much heaven for the kids. A country estate with nine cottages, an indoor soft-play barn, swimming pool, kids club, huge sand pit, climbing frames and even home-made meals available for you AND the kids – Domaine de Peyrecaty was everything we wanted in a holiday.

The indoor play barn. The bar is LITERALLY two paces away so they can play and you can…drink. Number one son and Number one nephew were entertained, outside all day and exhausted by bedtime. We could be in the sunshine, have a home-from-home experience in the cottage (they provide EVERYTHING you could need, from cots to monitors) and enjoy the local vin on our sun-drenched terrace or nip across to the fully licensed bar directly opposite.

Owners Steve and Helen even booked us a British former nurse as a babysitter one evening and we had a NIGHT OUT (!) in the local town. Her husband even drives you there and back. Basically this was as relaxing a holiday as you can get with children in tow. There is loads to see in the surrounding area (LOADS – we barely scraped the surface of attractions because we couldn’t drag the kids out of the toy-barn) and the scenery is ah-mazing.

In short, we are re-booking for next year. And just so you know, this wasn’t a free holiday. We paid for it all in full. I am recommending as good toddler-friendly / adult-fun holidays are pretty hard to find!

Book directly… Tell ’em I sent you.


Many thanks for making our stay so enjoyable for all of us. Already discussing our next trip back. Thanks again!


Thanks for your email, and for a lovely stay at Peyrecaty… we have certainly discussed returning as you have absolutely everything we would want from a holiday…. and the facilities you offer are perfect.


We had a lovely time staying at Peyrecaty and thank you so much for your hospitality and making us feel welcome. No one wanted to come home so that’s always a sign of a good holiday!


We all had a great time, and in particular, the girls thrived so quickly – like a year’s development in a week ! Peyrecaty is such a terrific place in every way! Thanks again for everything, sure we will see you again before too long

Colin and Nikki

…the girls from the airport on Saturday and the children were bubbling over with excitement about what a great holiday it had been with you at Peyrecaty and they really want to be back again next year. Thank you for making it such fun for all the family including Fiona & myself.

kind regards Bruce

We absolutely loved staying with you. The children didn’t want to leave! We miss the BBQ and sunsets at La Loge Rose and most of all, Steve’s Gin & Tonics. We hope you have a great summer! Many thanks once again

Kate and Simon xxx

Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday. It was fantastic to be able to relax and recharge. William LOVED the pool, his confidence in the water soared! My parents had a fantastic time too and liked being able to share in the family holiday, but also have their own space. Perfect!

Emma and family xx

I think it’s safe to say that we have fallen in love with France! We had the most amazing week in Peyrecaty. We cannot recommend you more highly as incredible hosts. You have created a wonderfully safe, relaxing and enjoyable site in the most stunning area, and we truly had a wonderful time. So much so, that we would love to return again! We wondering if you have any availability for July 21st 2018?

Best wishes and thanks again Jenni and Neil xx

Thank you wonderful guests for all your lovely comments
