Le Chevrefeuille Amenities

When Ian and Sara made Le Chèvrefeuille their home and their life, the mission was to create just the sort of place they would love to find for their own family holidays. Having two children of their own provides a pretty good starting point and the accommodation, facilities and helpful services on offer, shows the couple really understand what makes all the difference to parents and to children.

Located in the heart of the Dordogne, the charming ‘Perigordine' farmstead of Le Chèvrefeuille now comprises two self catering gîtes and five ensuite chambres d'hôte rooms around an inner courtyard and surrounded by extensive, grassy gardens. The style of the accommodation is a blend of medieval charm and modern comfort, from exposed sandstone walls and golden wood floors to gleaming bathrooms, WiFi throughout, satellite TV and quality baby kit. Whichever accommodation families choose, Ian and Sara have made sure that parents enjoy the perfect balance of quality time with the children, precious time to themselves and fun for all ages.

The sparkling pool is a child friendly focal point, surrounded by a secure fence, with a corner area for babies, full length steps for dipping little toes in the water and no deep end. Mums and dads can keep a watchful eye too, while relaxing on the poolside loungers and gazing on the views across the Valley. Both gîtes also have terraces where parents can watch children playing by the pool, while sampling renowned Perigord delicacies that are a must from the fantastic local markets. In addition to the pool, there's plenty to keep children amused inside and out, including table football, climbing frame, swings, toy room and TV room with a DVD player and Wii. Bikes are also available from toddlers to teens, including an infant seat attachment and children are encouraged to help the owners collect eggs from the farm hens.

Whilst the gites are primarily self-catering, breakfast is provided daily from May to September, family cookery courses all year round and food demonstrations in July and August. Owners can also provide pre arrival shopping and pre cooked meals to reheat if ordered in advance of arrival.

Families will love being able to take part in the highly popular Family & Kids Cookery Course - a great opportunity for some family bonding time. Ian’s passion and enthusiasm for local produce, getting kids into cooking and healthy eating is infectious. He is a natural teacher who knows exactly how to tailor the course to his audience. He has a fun and light-hearted teaching style.

  • Excellent provision for kids in a beautiful rural setting, with great food at the on-site restaurant 4 nights a week. We couldn't ask for more!Review dated 14/09/2012

  • We stayed for a week at Le Chevrefeuille in early May 2012 and had a wonderful week. We have two very small children - a one year old boy and a two year old girl - so staying anywhere apart from home can be stressful. It was the most relaxing time we have had as a family. The gite is equipped with everything you need for a young family. Anything that wasn't there on our arrival, we just had to ask our delightful hosts, Sarah and Ian, and they were only too happy to help out. There is a big back garden/field at the back of the gites with children's swings and a climbing frame, so you can easily keep an eye on them whilst they play. It was too cold to use the swimming pool, but it looks gorgeous. Perhaps the best thing about Le Chevrefeuille is that Ian and Sarah run a restaurant which is part of their B&B. We would put the kids to bed and then take the monitor into the restaurant and have a delicious meal whilst the kids slept in their beds. The food (and wine) are utterly delicious. Ian is a very talented chef and Sarah a wonderful hostess. Sarah and Ian have two children of their own, so it was great to see all the children playing together in a beautiful, safe environment. We are planning on returning next summer and we cannot wait!!!Review dated 10/05/2012
