About Mrs Lynne Smith
We purchased this property as a wreck in 2005 and have renovated it in keeping with local traditions, but with a modern touch. Having left the UK and moved to France permanently in 2007, we divide our time between property management, teaching French and generally enjoying this lovely area. We hope you do too.

Relaxing stay in a beautiful location
We had a fantastic week at Le Grézier. The house and grounds are beautifully kept and the owners Lynne and Darryl were friendly and helpful. The children especially enjoyed the pool. The local village Carlux has plenty of amenities and the house provides a perfect base for exploring the stunning Dordogne region. Would highly recommend a stay here.
We are so glad that you enjoyed Le Grézier and the surrounding area. We think it is beautiful here and are always happy to hear that other people feel the same.
An excellent getaway location, totally relaxing
A fantastic new conversion done to a very high standard, but which maintains the charm of the original building. We had a party of seven adults (four grown ups and three twenty somethings) and all were accommodated very easily. The rooms were simple but well thought out and more than enough for our needs. Daryl & Lynne were excellent as owners, living next door they were there when needed.
The property itself is located in a rural setting and was an ideal get away location in which it was easy to relax and forget everyday life (wine helped!) to recharge the batteries.
I would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone for a proper break from the world.
You will need a car to get to the nearby shops/town or any attractions.
PS they do have very good wi-fi, ask the youngsters!
Thank you for your excellent review. Our aim is to provide a high standard of accommodation in this lovely part of France and we are very glad you enjoyed your holiday here.

Beautiful house in superb location!
We stayed at Le Grezier in August 2014 and can highly recommend it! Lynne and Darryl were lovely welcoming hosts, very helpful, knowledgeable about the area, and nothing was too much trouble. The location is wonderful, up on the hill with lovely views over the nearby hills and forests. A pleasant bike ride to the bakery in the morning, and you can burn some calories on the way back up!
The large and beautiful garden was much enjoyed by adults and children alike, and the pool very well maintained.
Nearby to Carlux is great for its excellent farm shop and restaurant, bakery, butchers (superb Carluxienne Sausages!) and handy general store; and Salignac for supermarkets and markets.
We had great fun on the cycle routes which are fantastic for kids to ride on, and easy to find a nice picnic spot by the river (or you can stop for duck and chips with Chez Francis!).
Thanks again for lending us the bike Darryl.
So, whether you lounge by the pool, relax in the garden, potter round the shops, or want to be more active and head out to the many attractions of the area, cycling/kayaking etc this is a great choice of somewhere to stay for children and adults alike.
We like to move around and try different places, but we may well be back if we come back to the area.
We are so glad you enjoyed your holiday at Le Grezier. Thank you for your great review. It is very important to us to have up-to-date comments.
Stunning farmhouse in a beautiful area
We had a fantastic stay at Le Grezier, the farmhouse is beautiful and well equipped. The grounds are stunning and wonderfully maintained with the lovely pool a huge bonus. The living accommodation is really well laid out and was perfect for a multi generational family stay.
The area is spectacular with stunning scenery, lots to do and very calm although the farmhouse was so lovely it was hard to leave some days.
Lynne and Darryl were fabulous hosts and we definitely hope to stay again. A thoroughly recommended property!
Thank you for such a glowing review, our first for 2014. What a great start to the new season !
We are always very happy when people have enjoyed their stay and appreciated the house and gardens and we hope to see these guests return in future.

Beautiful holiday home.
We had a truly great holiday. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and at home. The house is spacious and very comfortable and the pool and gardens delightful. It was very warm at times so the pool was blissful especially after a day wandering around the hillside villages. A must is a day canoeing on the river. The scenery at every turn is spectacular. We will definitely return one day to this little bit of heaven. Lesley, Brian, sue, carol.
We would recommend Le Grezier unreservedly. The property was the best we have stayed in and we have been to France many times: it was exactly as described. The house was very well equipped, tastefully furnished and decorated - with comfortable beds and excellent showers. There were 3 generations of our family and everyone loved it. The children, 2 & 4, really enjoyed the pool and grounds which gave them plenty of scope to play in safety while the adults liked relaxing in the lovely gardens after a swim.
We were warmly greeted by Lynn & Darell, the owners, who were delightful - helpful, knowledgeable and friendly while giving us our own space. We agreed with the comments of previous visitors who said that a week was not long enough to do justice to all that the area has to offer. There were attractions that pleased everyone and we had no difficulty in finding places to eat.
As we left our 4 year old asserted that she wanted to come back next year - an opinion we all shared!
We are very pleased to have such a great review this season. It is always nice to know that our guests are having a really good holiday and enjoying our property.
The property is close to the fantastic medieval town of Sarlat with its cobbled streets, ancient buildings, restaurants, shops, bars. Other nearby beauty spots include Rocamadour, Beynac, Domme and many more. Within easy reach of the property are a variety of sporting and cultural activities. There are many signposted walks through the countryside, the GR6 for serious ramblers, canoeing on the River Dordogne (5 mins), horse riding (5 mins), golf at the Souillac Country Club (20 mins) - 18 holes, or the Domaine de Rochebois at Vitrac (20 mins) - 9 holes. The area also offers fishing, lake and riverside beaches, adventure and waterparks for children, gardens, castles, even hot-air ballooning for the more adventurous ! 4 bikes are available for use at the property for a small charge, with 35km of scenic cycle paths from Sarlat to Souillac.
Local markets sell delicious local produce, such as duck, foie gras, truffles, walnuts, chestnuts and, of course, excellent wines
