Exceptional experience all round  *****

This is an exceptional property in an idyllic setting, we had a fabulous stay here and couldn't recommend it highly enough. The whole property is exceptionally well appointed with every detail and need catered for which provided a great sense of home from home. The kitchen was a hit in particular in our party due to the thorough thought that has gone into ensuring it is thoroughly and properly equipped with nothing left wanting. Our group consisted of 3 small children and two sets of grandparents as well as myself and my wife; we had plenty of individual space and great communal areas. We arrived late Sunday evening and Elena and Amar could not have been more welcoming or accommodating, they strike a wonderful balance of being on hand to help without ever feeling as though they were encroaching. Something worth noting is how much nicer the salt water pool is over a chlorinated pool, everyone commented on this. (Amar makes for a great pool boy too!) The area is wonderful to with lots to do for all ages and Elena and Amar were great and offering suggestions and advice. I'd recommend this property to anyone looking for something special to spoil themselves with.

Amazing property in a beautiful location *****


This is an absolutely stunning house set in an idyllic countryside location. The accommodation is huge but as there were only of two of us we only used the master bedroom and living area on the ground floor. The master bedroom alone was like a hotel suite with king size bed, sitting area, ensuite bathroom and walk in wardrobe. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is also a large separate utility room. The outside space is massive and very private, surrounded by walnut trees and wheat fields. The large terrace at the rear of the house is perfect for those relaxed barbecues stretching into the night over a few bottles of the local wine.
Amar and Elena are excellent hosts - on the night of our arrival we joined them for the Hunters' Dinner in the local village hall and later in the holiday spent a very enjoyable evening of golf and dinner at Les Crouquets.
A car is essential to get to shops and restaurants but the house is centrally located for exploring the many beautiful towns and villages in the region.
Many thanks Amar and Elena - can't wait until our next visit!

Stunning villa......incredible value ****


We booked a stay at la tour de genebre for a party of 8 which comprised of 6 adults and 2 children. None of us had visited the dordogne before and our expectations were quite low. We could not have been more wrong!! Upon arrival and seeing the villa the whole group were in complete awe of the property and the surroundings. All finishing touches had been carried out to a very high standard and this was matched by the warm welcome we received from Amar and Elena. The accommodation is beautiful and all rooms have been decorated tastefully with all the comforts of a warm home. Although the local amenities are really not that local it was never too much trouble to jump in the car and pop to Salignac or Sarlat for supermarket or a restaurant....the black duck in Salignac was a personal favourite of ours. Amar and Elena were great hosts and even invited us to take part in the inaugural golf tournament at les crouquets. Amar claimed to be rubbish......he won!!
Reluctantly we have only given 4 stars due to the pool not being heated* but this was only a problem for the faint hearted of us.

All in all we can say that we had a brilliant holiday and are already contemplating our return next year. We would highly recommend to our family and friends that a stay here is well worth the drive and the money!!!!
