About Lambert Corinne

Opening a gite is above all a family affair! We will be happy to welcome you here!

Lambert Corinne purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Lambert Corinne chose Perigord Pourpre

The surroundings are stunning. The view of the river is breathtaking.

What makes this cottage unique

We built the wooden raised cabin (covered) that overlooks the water offering a unique viewpoint of the Dordogne River. The house is warm and comfortable thanks to its furniture and the Chinese decorations from the most beautiful antiques fairs in Perigord. Each room boasts high quality bedding and a TV.

average rating of 5.0 based on 12 reviews

A wonderful few days which felt like weeks! It was so relaxing...

  • 5 of 5

From the first email to book... Corinne and Damien (our Hosts) were the most helpful you could ever wish for. They have decorated their Gite beautifully and thought of absolutely everything. The Gite was immaculate, the pool was lovely, the decking area overlooking the river is just gorgeous. Bergerac and the surrounding area (vineyards and mediaeval villages) made the stay even more interesting.

We will definitely return - and that is a first...

This really is a 5 star property with 5 star hospitality. From arriving to leaving Corrine and Damien went out of their way to make our stay special. Having stayed in many places this really is one of the best properties, beautifully furnished and fully equipped to make your stay perfect. Bergerac is a walk away and is a delight. Lovely market, restaurants and shops. We can not rate this property and our hosts highly enough and we will be returning, hopefully in the not too distant future.

Our little piece of heaven and home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is a little piece of heaven on the Dordogne river just outside Bergerac.

it is so peaceful, with an abundance of wildlife, Herons, Black Kites, Buzzards,Jays, Magpies, Woodpeckers, Squirrels, Starlings, Swifts, Butterflies, Lizards, Fish and some smaller birds we have yet to identify.

Our hosts, Corinne and Damien, are such a lovely couple who could not do enough for you, they felt like friends before we got there due to our contact via email, they were friends by the time we came home. Corinne was helpful in suggesting places to visit and with her daily emails informing of us of events in Bergerac.

The gite is beautiful, the kitchen was the best equipped we have ever encountered, the beds were comfortable, there is plenty of room for relaxing and dinning in and outside, the pool was very welcoming as we were so very lucky with the weather, there was Table Tennis, Badminton and a Trampoline for those feeling more energetic, all set in a wonderful garden. The covered decked seating area overlooking the river was just perfect.

A 20 minute walk and you were at the port in the old town of Bergerac.

We can not wait to return to our little piece of heaven, I highly recommend you give this a try, you will not want to go home, we didn't.

Beautiful Accommodation with fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this wonderful Gite (which is more like a villa) in June 2016 for two weeks. The Gite was perfect, beautifully furnished and exceptionally clean, with interesting classic antique furnishings for the most which had a shabby chique feel. The heated pool was a great asset, especially when it was 30 degrees in the sunshine, although there was plenty of shade with trees to sit under or the pergola at the end of the garden looking onto the river with it's lovely views.

The Gite was well equipped with satellite TV in the main room and French channels on the TVs in the bedrooms. DVD player in the children's bedroom.

Lots of facilities for children (and some adults too) in the garden such as table tennis, badminton and a very large trampoline. there are also two bikes in the garage that the owners kindly let us use.

The owners Corrine and Damien were very welcoming and had bought some groceries, fruit and bread on our arrival and also a very kind gift of flowers and champagne for our 30th wedding anniversary. Also Corrine was very kind in taking the time to email me on a daily basis with suggestions of places to visit or letting me know where there was a market etc. on specific days. this was really helpful.

The airport is very convenient and only five minutes away by car, it is a very small airport with limited flights which do not bother you in the Gite at all (only a couple of flights a day).

Bergerac is about a brisk 20 minute walk from the Gite, there is a busy road with no pavement to walk on for part of the walk, which is a little off putting but not too bad. However, by car the town is 5 minutes and there is lots of free parking available. There are many supermarkets nearby, so there is plenty of choice. The Intermarche has a petrol station at the rear where the prices are very good compared to some service stations. Bergerac and the surrounding area is beautiful, lots to see and do. You shouldn't miss a visit to Monbazzilac to visit the Chateau and partake in some wine tasting, by the way you can see the Chateau all lit up from the Gite in the evening it looks wonderful.

Overall I would highly recommend this beautiful Gite for a holiday to anyone looking for a relaxing and peaceful holiday in a picturesque environment. We had a wonderful holiday and I'm sure if your reading this and decide to book that you will too.

5 adults stayed in April 2016. From the moment we arrived to meet our wonderful hostess we were thrilled with the gite. The position is incredible, on the banks of the Dordogne. It's quiet and relaxing and the gite has been restored to the highest quality with every thing holiday makers need. Corrine sent us emails daily with activities, like markets in the area etc,. She reserved restaurants for us, and was the perfect hostess. I cannot recu omen this gite highly enough.

Truly an Exceptional Property

  • 5 of 5

This is simply an exceptional property with wonderful hosts. We have stayed in many places using VRBO and this is one of the finest that we have been in. The pictures are accurate to understating how spacious and comfortable everything is. No detail has been left out. The house itself is extremely quiet and private being well set back from the road on a large acreage and set right against the Dordonne River for wonderful views. Corinne and Damien are right next door if needed but given the physical separation of the houses and being so nicely landscaped and fenced you don't even know there are there. The house instruction book is very detailed and helpful for reference both about the house and where to get essentials. The beds are so comfortable and dreamy! Everything was wonderfully new and clean and there are lots of brochures and reference materials for days trips. Corrine sent us a daily text/e-mail to provide suggestions on what is on in the area (e.g. local fresh fish markets) and places to see that aren't as well advertised. We cannot express our thanks for a wonderful time - our only wish is we had dedicated more time here as the Gite and area are so wonderful.
