We visited Peaceful France for the second time and it was still as beautiful as ever. The welcome from Lisanne and Den was warm and friendly and Geoff the Labrador was as loving as ever. The cottage was clean and the welcome goodies were tasty, as always. The restaurant recommendations from Lisanne and Den were outstanding value and the food was simply divine. If you don’t want to spend the week relaxing there is plenty to see and do close by, from Bastide towns and old cathedrals, to beautiful Chateaux and local markets. Everything is provided for a relaxing holiday, but if you do feel energetic, there are bikes to visit local villages, or the gym to work off some extra energy, but with surroundings like this, why would you?
Something new this year to Domaine de Leygue is Angie, a really lovely Massage Therapist and Reflexologist! The massage was superb, one of the best we have had, and what a wonderful way to end a hard day of relaxing by the pool!
To paraphrase Arnie, “We’ll be back!”

"The birds were too loud"...yes friends...that was an actual complaint from a guest in the amazing place we stayed in France last week.
Deep in the Dordogne countryside your main companions are birds, cattle and deer..apart from the resident wonderful Geoff and Lillie - labrador and cat respectively. Amazing walks in every direction. Beautiful bastide towns to meander to and select produce at the markets to BBq on the terrace in the evening.
Four beautiful one bed traditional cottages set in a huge beautiful garden with the owners living in the farmhouse and you cd not meet a more hospitable couple.

I'm just figuring out how I cd go for two weeks next year.....

We just wanted to express our thanks for such a lovely holiday. Our gite was beautiful and the week totally exceeded our expectations for a peaceful and totally relaxing break which was exactly what we needed!
We will be sure to return.

A perfect week, in a perfect cottage.

Un petit havre de paix au milieu de la campagne Dordogne.
Lisanne et Dan sont  aux petits soins tout en restant très discrets. 
Nous avons passé une agréable semaine de repos, tranquillité, visites de nombreux sites aux alentours mais aussi sportive avec les deux superbes piscines.

Our thanks to our superb hosts Lisanne and Den for another fantastic two weeks at Domaine de Leygue. Peaceful France captures the essence of everything a holiday should be, an opportunity to totally relax and unwind in the beautiful Dordogne countryside. The properties are, if anything, better than ever, set amidst impeccably manicured grounds and views to die for. A special mention to Den the ‘pool man’; I have never stayed anywhere where the pool steps are polished! So looking forward to our 5th visit next July.

There’s only one word to describe Domaine de Leygue, and that is beautiful. As soon as you turn into the courtyard you know you have made the right choice for your holiday. Lisanne and Den, thank you for being so welcoming , helpful and friendly…this is our 2nd visit to Domaine de Leygue, and we can’t wait to come back!

Ann and Jeff, July 2016

Thank you both very much for a superb holiday at Domaine de Leygue. Your friendly and attentive hospitality made our stay both comfortable and enjoyable.
As you know we have over the years been regular visitors to “Peaceful France” and we have to say The Domaine has never looked better.
For us it has always been our perfect holiday venue but your flair and hard work has raised it to an even higher level!

Mike and Maureen, June 2016

Upon arrival in the courtyard of Domaine de Leygue, our already high expectations (based upon the website) were immediately exceeded. We were overwhelmed with the beauty of the location and delighted by the warmth of the welcome.
Our chosen cottage was wonderful & extremely clean and furnished to a very high standard. There were extra special touches which enhanced the welcome even further. The location of the four cottages is extremely private giving each a feeling of seclusion.
Attention to detail ensures every guest has a memorable time at Domaine de Leygue. The location is idyllic & peaceful and tranquil.
If you want to & escape from it all! Domaine de Leygue is everything you could wish for and more.
We have thought of our days spent at Domaine de Leygue many times since our departure..... we will be returning.

Jenny and Mike, May 2016

We had a wonderful winter escape to Domaine de Leygue; Lisanne and Den are fantastic hosts, the Tower is sumptuous and we relaxed completely. So much so that we have booked a return visit to Domaine de Leygue in May.
Our accommodation had everything we could want to hand and the hosts had considered all treats. Domaine de Leygue is stunning; its location peaceful and private but not remote, the facilities amazing and the view is beautiful. We were surrounded by a huge number of varied birds and range of wildlife, which was lovely.
This area of the Dordogne is buzzing in winter; the local town was full of life, markets selling truffles and warm winter food, cafes and bars full of locals. And the weather was our equivalent of sunny spring. I can't wait to return...

We loved Domaine de Leygue, the best cottage we have stayed in over the many years we have visited France. Very clean, very comfortable bed, furnished to a high standard and very well equipped. Great to have wi-fi.
The setting is beautiful and the pools excellent.
The owners are very friendly and welcoming, there when you want them, but not "in your face"

Robert & Helen

Domaine de Leygue was absolutely perfect for us and the cottage, the gardens and pools were so immaculately clean, pretty and cared for.
We shall certainly return again in the future.
Thanks again

John & Fiona

We have had a wonderful time. The setting is superb and the accommodation just what we had wished for. We have spent time visiting some old haunts and discovering new ones. The region remains one of our great favourites and your home is an ideal base.
