Thank you for all your reviews and see you again soon at Laborie
A trio of delightfully atmospheric buildings, one has a bathroom inside an old pigeon tower and all three share an outdoor pool.

Laborie was everything we hoped for and more. A beautiful setting, with an extremely clean and welcoming gite. The pool was amazing and the kids spent many hours of fun splashing around. Everything you could want on your doorstep. Friendly hosts. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Laborie and if we find ourselves back in the Dordogne again for a holiday we will be sure to book the Old Barn again. Thank you for providing the best setting for a wonderful family holiday! Mica Roma, United Kingdom
Very pleasant, peaceful stay. The hosts have a great digital app where they recommend things to do in the area. The accommodation is very clean and the communal areas very well maintained.
Chrystelle Bernard, Ireland
The Bread Oven was the perfect setting for a holiday in the Dordogne - close to lots of facilities and places of interest, but in a rural location, too. The gite was really comfortable and downstairs remained cool despite the outside heat. The kitchen was well equipped and everything was very clean. We loved the pool and the views across the fields at the back.
Louise Richard, United Kingdom
We’ve just spent a glorious week staying in the Bread Oven. Thank you Sean and Cecile for your welcome when we arrived and your help in recommending places to visit. Having said that the Laborie app was really useful. The accommodation is beautifully clean and really well equipped.
I couldn’t recommend it highly enough and if you’re looking for a stunning location in this part of France you’d be pushed to find anything better. We also loved to come back after trips out and spend time in the pool. We hope to return in the future.
Paul Kasia, United Kingdom
This is the second time we (2 adults and 2 teenagers) visited Sean and Cécile at Laborie and the Old Barn. It is such a beautiful, peaceful place and a fantastic base for exploring the area.
We visited Collonges-la-Rouge and of course Rocamadour and Sarlat and Carennac. The previous year we went to Martel, which is also very charming and picturesque and has market days on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. One of the best outings this time was a visit to Brive and the Saturday market – very busy but not touristy. We also really enjoyed our canoeing trip from St Sozy to Pinsac and visiting Le Gouffre de Padirac, which is just amazing but gets really busy so worth booking an early time slot. On our way to Sarlat we stopped at Zoo de Calviac which is a very relaxed small animal park in the middle of mature woodlands (located on a very steep hill).
Souillac is around 20 minutes drive away and is great for food shopping, it has an Aldi, Lidle and a large E Leclerc. Opposite the E Leclerc is a daily local food market where you can buy anything from fresh fruit and veg to bread and wine. On the way you will drive past an excellent pottery Le Potier De Mayrac – we always seem to find something to take home with us. St Sozy has a great pizza restaurant with very friendly staff and the local Spar is great for top up food purchases and fresh croissants and bread. The local butcher is also excellent. When we were not busy it was lovely to just chill by the pool, especially on hot days. Sean and Cécile have created a little paradise – beautiful mature gardens with lovely views over the country side. We will be back. Danni, Tony & Nina Bennett, Scotland
The Bread Oven Cottage was everything we anticipated. Charming, cosy and well placed in a wonderful setting. The facilities are first class with pleasant shared areas and well thought out spaces for privacy.The owners, Sean and Cecile, are excellent hosts and do provide a very comfortable and fully equipped property. Being able to watch English channels on the TV was an added bonus. We thoroughly recommend a stay here. Many thanks
Elizabeth Glenn, United Kingdom
Thanks for a very nice stay, the kids were very upset to leave the bread oven and the area which we all really enjoyed. Hope your next guests enjoy it as much as we did.
Kevin Famile, England
We had a wonderful time in Meyronne, when we initially booked we intended to use the Gite as a base, but the setting and The Barn was breathtaking, we spent quite a lot of time in and around, Meyronne and St Sozy. There was everything we needed in The Barn, we looked forward each night to preparing our evening meal and drinking in the views, enjoying the weather and chatting to the other guests. There was soooo much to do, plenty activities and the info/directions/suggested places to visit from Sean and Cecile was spot on. We were a party of 4, 2 adults and 2 children, the children are age 15 and 10, we had no problems finding things to do and places to see that suited everyone. It was our first visit to The Barn/Dordogne but it won't be our last, there's soooo much we have yet to see. We had no issues at The Barn but I'm sure if there was Sean and Cecile would have been on the ball. We reluctantly would definitely recommend it, reluctantly only because we want to keep it all to ourselves.
Helen Ewart, Scotland
We had a relaxing week, a total change of scenery. We needed to get back to nature and we were already fascinated by the area. Nice house with all amenities, the pleasant pool and the excellent welcome of Cécile and Sean who are very good hosts. I highly recommend this rental which is perfectly located for visits and activities. Ideal for couples or families.
C Rose, United Kingdom
The Old Barn was comfortable and well-equipped in a lovely setting. The area was very scenic with lots to see and do. We really enjoyed our stay, would visit again and would recommend Laborie to our friends.
Steve Samd, United Kingdom
We had a thoroughly enjoyable week staying in this barn-conversion gite, superbly renovated to an exceptional standard. The shared pool was a great asset, the facilities perfect, and the location wonderful.
Vernon Wilkins, United Kingdom
Thank you for a lovely stay, we loved the Barn, it was everything (and more) that we expected. As with our previous stay, which was in the Bread Oven, the welcome was with open arms, the Barn accommodation was amazing, clean, tidy, & vast! The pool was again a godsend on the hot days and after a long day exploring what the region has to offer - the steam train at Martel with its spectacular views, the various caves steeped in history and low ceilings; Rocamadour.
Gavin Sunderland, United Kingdom
Nous logions dans le "Four à pain": chaleureux, bien équipé, avec un petit matelas d'appoint dans la chambre d'enfants il était parfait pour une famille. Le gîte est très bien situé, idéal pour faire de nombreuses visites sans passer ses journées sur la route.Quant aux propriétaires, ils sont absolument charmants, l'ambiance est détendue, familiale. On se sent vraiment bien à Laborie !
Pascal Perrussel-Morin, Belgium
We had a brilliant week in Laborie. The Farmhouse had everything we needed and the pool and garden were superb - a perfect base for us all to relax and enjoy the glorious weather. The area is beautiful with loads of things to see and do very close by. Sean and Cecile had thought of everything and were able to give us lots of information and advice. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Laborie to anyone.
Stephen & Helen Bladwell, United Kingdom
We spent a lovely week at Laborie in the farmhouse. the farmhouse was stunning, very well appointed and spacious for our family of five. Our hosts Sean and Cecile were welcoming and very friendly, with lists of recommendations of sites to see and restaurants to try. The location is superb, a quite tranquil oasis in a well placed location to explore some of the most beautiful villages in France. The Dordogne has so much to offer.
Laura & Ian Rainey, Australia
We have just returned from a very happy week in Meyronne! We stayed in the Bread Oven with our 2 boys (6 and 10 years old) and absolutely loved it. The cottage is quiet, cosy and quaint – set in the most beautiful courtyard and grounds. The boys enjoyed the pool and we loved exploring the region. There is loads to do and the surrounding villages (Martel, Rocamadour and Domme) are very special. The absolute highlight was canoeing down the Dordogne (which itself lies about 500m from the cottage). All in all a memorable stay. Sean went out of his way to make us welcome and comfortable and we can’t thank him enough. It was everything we could have wanted and more.
Linsey & Paul Schluter, South Africa
We stayed for one week in June with some beautiful weather and plenty to see and do. Booked both cottages with friends and we stayed in the Bread Oven. Our accommodation was very comfortable and the buildings and surroundings very picturesque. Cecile, Sean and family were wonderful hosts making us feel very welcome with plenty of helpful advice. Loved the sights of this area including Rocamadour, Gouffre de Padirac, Martel steam train, Sarlat market and the many surrounding beaux villages. A highlight was a canoe trip down the Dordogne river. There are plenty of great walks around Laborie on the small local roads.
Graham & Abby Dewhurst, Australia
What can I say about this property that I am sure hasn't already been said. 'The Barn' that we stayed in was really great everything that you needed and very spacious and most important plenty of hot water. What we found was so nice, after a day visiting some of the lovely places to go. was to relax around a very nice pool on comfy sun beds then after dinner because of the glorious location you could go for a really nice walk. Sean and Cecile are charming people who will help out where they can and the directions that we received before we arrived were spot on. We don't normally recommend places to people as everyone is so different but this property we would, loved it.
Sheila & Peter Osbourne, England
When I viewed this location on the web I was swayed by the reviews "Laborie" had received. Well, all I can say is that no one so far has adequately described these properties, and I won't be able to either. Beautiful, elegant, fantastic and idyllic are not enough! We arrived, two families, on a Saturday to this beautiful rural location. The Farmhouse is as described on the Laborie website, but somehow it just doesn't do it justice. The Farmhouse has been wonderfully restored to a very high standard with attention to detail and some lovely little quirks. On our second week we stayed in the Barn - again a really well presented and restored property. Whilst we stayed at Laborie my cousin came to visit, who is a builder. He commented that this was one of the best restorations / conversions he has viewed, and he left with a few more ideas for his own future projects. The icing in the cake was the local knowledge that Sean and Cecile provided us with. No matter what we asked them about they had an answer and if they were not sure they came back quickly with one. They were excellent hosts and they definitely went out of their way for their guests. A visit to Rocamadour, Sarlat, canoeing on the Dordogne and the tree top adventure park are all worth a visit for adults and children. A holiday destination I can highly recommend to either a family or a couple, set in a perfect location.
D & R Black, United Kingdom
Laborie provides beautiful, high quality accommodation in a stunning area of the Dordogne. Sean and Cecile have clearly invested an amazing amount of care, attention and money into ensuring that the cottage meets the needs of even the most demanding of customers. The accommodation is as beautiful as the pictures on the web of not more so and was perfectly suited to us as a professional couple looking for a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. Key highlights included insightful advice from the owners about lovely places to visit and eat allowing us to make the most of our time in the area, all the amenities and gadgets you could need to help you enjoy a stress free stay with all the comforts of home and stunning views that leave you feeling sorry to go inside when the sun goes down. We would highly recommend Laborie.
David & Helen Bailey, England
This was our fourth visit in five years to The Bread Oven. We absolutely love staying at Laborie! The pool is fantastic and it is a stunning setting with lots of space in the garden for our two young boys to run around and count the tractors passing by the gates. Sean and Cecile are wonderful hosts, very welcoming and full of useful advice and tips on where to go and where to eat. Their family is so friendly and our boys loved playing with their daughter Eva, in fact they still talk about 'Eva's House' now we're back home. The cottage is perfect for our us - very well-equipped and comfortable. It's a superb location, not only is it beautiful but it's so close to the pretty village of Saint Sozy, the Dordogne River, Gordes, Rocamadour - and pretty much everything that the Dordogne has to offer. It really is a wonderful escape for us all and we can't wait to come back.
Zoe Elliott-Fawcett, United Kingdom
We just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for a wonderful week at Laborie. The Farmhouse was beautiful and perfect for our 2 families. The setting couldn’t have been better and the swimming pool very welcome in the heat!
We were very lucky to have made friends with the other families staying at Laborie and we had a fun time altogether. The area is stunning with so much to do but the highlight for us must have been Kayaking down the Dordogne.
Thanks again – we really hope we can make it back soon and thank you for being helpful and welcoming hosts.
Mark Bettersworth, United Kingdom
We had a fabulous family holiday at Laborie. The farmhouse is great, a real home from home with lots of lovely touches. It is much bigger than it looks in the photos. Pool was great for the whole family. Plenty of outdoor space. Great base to explore the region and loads to do and see locally. Sean and Cecile were excellent hosts and had plenty of tips and recommendations for days out and restaurants. Don't hesitate to book, you won't be disappointed. And a special thank you to little Eva who was a wonderful host too:) David and Helen x
David & Helen Hodgkinson, England
Excellent logement avec tout ce qu il faut pour passer un très agréable séjour L équipement est neuf, le logement est spacieux et très bien réhabilite , La piscine est idéale pour se rafraîchir après la découverte des nombreux sites et villages à visiter ( padirac, rocamadour,...) Calme et nature préservée . À conseiller absolument. Les propriétaires sont chaleureux et disponibles. Nous reviendrons à l occasion d un prochain séjour
Maximilien B., France
Thank you so much for such a perfect holiday. We had a fantastic time whilst staying at Laborie; with just the right mix of French Life - idyllic setting and sleepy lifestyle. It is ideally situated for all the tourist attractions (if wanted) with plenty to do, all within less than 2 hours travel time - exploring the glorious chateaus on offer, lunch in a medieval town, discover the wide variety of local foods offered or visit many of the archaeologically sites abundant in the area. You most surely will never be bored! Our hosts Sean, Cecile were friendly and thoughtful. We hardly noticed that they were there but they were always available when we needed something such as a recommendation for a romantic dinner at a Michelin star restaurant or interesting places to visit and explore. The accommodation was beautifully presented, very clean, spacious and had a touch of romanticism to it, which we loved. They thought of everything and if you did forget anything at home then it is only a 10 minute walk to St. Sozy where you can find a local butcher, Spar, bakery and a few low key restaurants offering everything from pizza to French cuisine.
Laborie offer a warm, welcoming, peaceful holiday away from the normal stresses of life, a perfect escape!
C Bothma, England
Wir haben im August mit 4 Erwachsenen und 4 Kindern das farmhouse bewohnt und eine tolle Zeit dort verbracht. Das Haus, das Gelände und die Umgebung sind wunderschön. Das Haus ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet, gut ausgestattet und bietet selbst für 8 Personen ausreichend Platz. Wir haben den großzügigen Garten und den schönen Pool viel genutzt, die Kinder hätten am liebsten ihre komplette Ferienzeit auf dem Gelände verbracht. Die Besitzer Sean und Cecile sind ausgesprochen nett und hilfsbereit und immer ansprechbar. Die Gegend und das Ferienhaus bieten so viele Möglichkeiten, dass wir sehr gerne noch einmal zurückkehren würden!
K Quaas, Germany
Having recently returned from a two week holiday at Laborie staying in the Bread-Oven Cottage we would like to share our experience of a great holiday and also take this opportunity to thank our superb hosts... Sean & Cecile. Laborie is set in beautiful countryside and we can definitely say that the phrase "getting away from it all" applies here. Days spent lazing around the pool and evening walks along the country lanes were a welcome tonic and yet it's also a well-placed location to go off for a day's sightseeing. There are some truly beautiful villages and towns to explore, Domme, Carennac, Rocamadour, La Roque-Gageac to name but a few. Plus, if you enjoy gardens then there is some fantastic topiary to see at the gardens of Marqueyssac and Eyrignac which are all within an hour’s drive. Other adventures to be had were canoeing on the river Dordogne which can be easily arranged close by in Meyronne.There are a variety of eateries ranging from the very family friendly La Capricorne in St. Sozy less than 5 mins drive away (excellent Pizza's eat in or takeaway) to the fine dining at La Terrasse restaurant which is within 10 mins walking distance. On a practical note, the accommodation had our every need covered. We would strongly recommend Laborie and this location to all for a wonderful holiday.
J Gittens & W Hinkson, United Kingdom
This has to be one of the best places for a quiet, relaxing, place to stay. Surrounded by beauty and in a location close to so many of the must see's. Just lovely. The bread-oven was perfect for us (incl 2 kids - 5yrs & nearly 2yrs). All 3 properties lovely, well furnished, very clean and a great base for the holiday. The pool was an excellent respite for all, post our daily travels. Salt water pool too - no chlorine - brill!!! Sean and Cecile were the best for hospitality, friendliness, any information and always making sure all was well. With Eva who was a lovely friend for our kids and the whole family, not something you'll get on most holidays. We regret not being able to have booked for longer, so will definitely be returning, there's just so much to see and do and the weather to do it in. We've been blown away by our Dordogne experience. We can only recommend Labrie Meyronne and Sean, Cecile & Eva's welcome and hospitality highly.
S & A Birkitt, England
Thank you both so much for such a perfect holiday. The three properties are nestled on one plot of land that has been cleverly designed so that each has its own outdoor space and privacy. The accommodation and surrounding gardens are immaculately kept! The Barn itself is spacious, airy and tastefully furnished in a simple French style and has all that you will need for a relaxing holiday. The short walk to the nearest village is a pleasure for all your senses; fantastic scenery, orchards bursting with ripe fruit and gardens with extraordinary vegetables, a mix of old and new properties and an abundance of birdlife! Laborie is just the right mix of French Life; idyllic setting, sleepy lifestyle, sun, food, drink etc. It is ideally situated for all the tourist attractions (if wanted) and run by the two loveliest people ever and such wonderful hosts! We will definitely be recommending you to our friends...
S & A Harrison, United Kingdom
Nous avons été totalement séduits par cette location. La maison aménagée avec gout et entièrement équipée ( lave vaisselle, machine à laver) est très belle et fonctionnelle. Idéale pour deux couples avec enfants ( nous avions chacun notre salle de bain), au calme, proche de très beaux lieux touristiques. La piscine est très agréable, entièrement securisée, nous avions notre jardin sans vis à vis ou nous avons pris des apéros interminables :-). Les propriétaires sont des personnes très sympathiques et disponibles!
S. Virzi, Belgium
We have just arrived home from the most wonderful weeks holiday staying in the Bread Oven at Laborie. What a fantastic location, lovely accommodation and a great warm welcome from the owners Sean and Cecile.
The location is perfect for touring the local area, with all the picturesque towns and cliff side villages within easy reach. Sean and Cecile's local knowledge was excellent, and they pointed us in the direction of some fantastic sites. Once back at the Bread Oven our son was happy in the pool while my wife and I sipped local red wine (very cheap as well) in our own private garden over looking the pool. All in all a fantastic holiday, we shall be recommending Laborie to all our friends. Perfect, we shall be returning next year.
M & S Booth, England
De laatste week van juli 2011 hebben wij in het Farmhouse vakantie gevierd met ons gezin van zeven. Het huis ligt prachtig aan een stil weggetje, is ruim, schoon, zeer compleet, comfortabel en sfeervol. Bedden zijn al opgemaakt. De kinderen speelden in het zwembad en probeerden in de tuin hagedisjes te vangen. De Dordogne is vlakbij het huis. We hebben er heerlijk gekanood tussen de hoge rotswanden. We hebben in de rivier gespeeld en gezwommen en liggend op rubber banden hebben we ons lekker in de zon laten meedrijven met de stroom. Het is een feest om in dat gebied met de auto rond te rijden. De kinderen vonden het aapjespark bij Rocamadour erg leuk. Je kunt de aapjes uit de hand voeren. Oh ja, de eigenaars, Sean en Cecile zijn super aardig en behulpzaam. Het was handig voor ons dat ze Engelstalig zijn.
M. Kamphuis, The Netherlands
We had a wonderful week in the bread oven cottage. Sean and Cecile made us feel really welcome with lots of little touches like the bottle of wine on arrival and especially the NZ tea towel in the kitchen! The cottage was spotless and had everything we needed. Sean and Cecile provided us with invaluable information as to local attractions. Our highlights would have been the canoe trip down the Dordogne and the walk from Bouzies to St Cirq Lapopie. There was so much to do we could have easily filled in another week or two. Our week finished with a great family night out with Sean, Cecile and Eva sampling some of the local delicacies. We would not hesitate to recommend Laborie to friends or family, particularly those with children, as a fantastic place to stay.
J Schollum, New Zealand
Thanks for the wonderful fortnight we have just spent at Laborie. We really enjoyed our stay at Laborie, which is in an idyllic and peaceful setting with great facilities and a superb, well kept pool, where we spent many an hour relaxing. You all made us feel very welcome and were always on hand to give advice on places to visit and restaurants to eat in, your recommendations were spot on! The Barn is very well equipped with all that we needed, with a quiet location and a comfortable bed, we slept so soundly. We would not hesitate to recommend you to our family and friends and look forward to seeing you again sometime.
P Challoner, United Kingdom
We had a wonderful stay at Laborie. The Bread Oven cottage was lovely, clean, nicely decorated and well equipped. The location was beautiful and very peaceful but very convenient to get to lots of the lovely places of interest around the Dordogne and the Lot. The owners were so welcoming and friendly and helpful with recommendations for restaurants and places to visit.
B Humphries, United Kingdom
Many thanks for a very memorable holiday in a very special area of France. Your location is so central for seeing the Dordogne valley and its famous castles and towns. We will take away with us many special memories.
Our two girls enjoyed the pool so much and our accommodation was perfect.
Hopefully we will get a chance to return in the future.
J & P Flynn, Ireland
La location se situe dans un cadre magnifique, d''un calme absolu et d''un charme rare. Accueil généreux et plus que sympathique de la part des propriétaires, maison ravissante, aménagée avec goût et sécurité pour les enfants, environnement des plus agréables, cette location à Meyronne a été une très bonne surprise de l''été, nous ne pouvons que chaudement la recommander!
K. Vouillamoz, Switzerland
A few weeks have passed by and I was looking through the photos from our holiday in France. I am reminded that I should contact you to say how wonderful our time was in The Barn. The accommodation was beautifully presented, spacious, spotlessly clean and welcoming. Everything we needed was there and you were very welcoming hosts. The area is stunning, with plenty of sites to see and things to do ... even if that was doing nothing by the pool. Thank you very much for allowing us to stay at Laborie, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will hopefully return again in the future. We will recommend you to all our friends and family.
M. Gibson, England
What a fantastic holiday we had with you back in May. We really had a wonderful time and you made such an effort to make us feel so welcome and gave us great tips on where to go and what to see. We will definitely be back - all going well with 2 little ones next time around!
L. Martin, Ireland
Fantastic, quiet, rural location but within easy reach of beautiful local towns. Great accommodation with a brilliant swimming pool and terrace. The setting is just as picturesque as the photos suggest, set in a wide valley with corn fields in all directions. The River Dordogne is less than 10 minutes walk and is simply stunning. There is a real sense of being in a genuine French community rather than it being dominated by holiday makers, the local people don't speak a lot of English which for us was a bonus and stopped us being lazy with our language. It probably goes without saying, but the local food and wine is some of the best you will find. Sean and Cecile were incredibly welcoming and helpful with advice on places to visit / eat. The whole atmosphere was completely relaxed and friendly. We were genuinely sad to be leaving.
L. Donner, United Kingdom
Thank you once again for a most enjoyable stay. The Barn at Laborie provided us with everything we could have wished for, and we appreciated your unobtrusive concerns for our comfort. We would be very happy to recommend the facilities at Laborie to anyone looking for accommodation in that part of the Dordogne. We hope that we may be able to visit you again one day.
J. Boyd England
Just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful stay at Laborie and for making us both so welcome. Your place here is beautiful, you have done a fantastic job with it. We will definitely be back, we had an amazing honeymoon!
S. Brennan, United Kingdom
The standard of accommodation and the location are superb. We were made to feel really welcome by Sean and Cecile. My family and I will definitely return.
J. McNally, United Kingdom
We had a really great time staying with you and will definitely be back and recommending Laborie to all of our friends and family.
B. Forbes, England
We stayed in the Bread Oven which had been beautifully renovated and was very well equipped and spotlessly clean. The location was delightful and very peaceful - just a 20 minute walk to a bar/restaurant in Meyronne on the banks of the Dordogne river or, if you want a longer walk, on to St Sozy. There is loads to see and do in the Dordogne/Lot area or just you could chill-out in the garden or by the pool at Laborie. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this accommodation to others. Cecile and Sean were the perfect hosts - and we had a really great stay there.
A. Mullins, Canada
I just wanted to say what a wonderful part of France you live in. It is so beautiful and we are very jealous of your set-up. Your accommodation is first class and we couldn’t have asked for more- your fabulous help and suggestions, beautiful pool and sightseeing made for a fantastic holiday. We will definitely be recommending you to our friends.
B. Foot, England
We loved our stay at Laborie and are telling friends and acquaintances about it and how central it is to the lovely Dordogne area.
K. Butler, United Kingdom
It is almost a week since we left Laborie and the memories are still very much with us - that of one of the most relaxing holidays we have encountered. We would all like to thank you for the lovely accommodation and the beautiful surroundings. You have both made such a good job of all three sites which must have been such hard work for you both. We do hope to see you both again as we didn't have time to see half of the surrounding areas, but what we did see are some of the most delightful towns and villages we have come across.
C. Whatley, United Kingdom
Cadre agréable, situation idéale pour visiter la région. Le gite propose un grand confort apprécié, les hotes sont sympathiques et apportent de bons conseils pour visiter la région. N'hésitez pas!
O. Lepetit, France
Wonderful accommodation and spectacular setting! The owners are very welcoming and ready to help in every way! Very well positioned for all the great places to see and the countryside! A happy place to stay! I would definitely go back again!
S. Yell, United Kingdom
A stunning location matched only by the standard of the property and welcome from the owners Sean and Cecile. Scenery, food (drink!), relaxation, sun, culture...since we first visited we have returned with family in tow and we do so again this year. Rocamadour never fails to take our breath away, or the view over the Dordogne from Domme. We dined at La Terrasse last year, and it is really something special, but a 10 minute walk into St. Sozy will get you an excellent cassoulet or confit, in the more informal atmosphere of the local hotel. The opinions never differ - if you want a warm, welcoming, peaceful holiday with all that rural France has to offer, then a visit to Laborie and the surrounding area is a must.
J. Campbell, Scotland
We loved our two week stay at Laborie. It is exactly as advertised and even more beautiful than the photos suggest! It is a fantastic place for kids, they loved the pool and were never bored. Apart from some great castles and sightseeing, there were heaps of activates they enjoyed such as tree climbing, monkey park nearby and a spectacular eagle show at Rocamadour. Our hosts were always helpful and had great suggestions on what to see and do. A fantastic place for a family holiday.
M. Stewart, England
Just a little note to say thank you for your warm welcome at Laborie. We had a really wonderful holiday, the memories of which are all the more special as I sit in my office in London listening to the roadworks outside...
J. Delaney, England
Tout d'abord je tiens à vous redire le plaisir que j'ai eu de séjourner dans votre gîte "le four à Pain". C'est la première fois que je vois un gîte aussi bien équipé. C'est très agréable et pratique. Je pense que si j'ai l'occasion de revenir dans la région, je n'hésiterais pas à vous recontacter!
L. Thilloy, France
My partner and I had a fantastic time at Laborie. The weather was perfect and we were really pleased that we had decided to base ourselves at Laborie. Sean and Cecile made us feel very welcome and were great hosts – we hardly noticed that they were there but they were always available when we needed something such as a recommendation for a restaurant. We stayed in the Barn, which has been renovated recently. They did a great job – the building still retains its period features but inside it's light and airy and equipped with all you’ll need for a self-catering holiday. And this is a great part of France - the surrounding countryside is really peaceful and it's only a short drive to some great villages: Sarlat, Beynac... I totally recommend Laborie as an ideal place for a holiday.
P. Scott, Australia
We have been back a week now and just to say a very big thank you for a wonderful holiday spent at Laborie. Many thanks as well for all your local recommendations of where to eat and making arrangements for our bookings as well.
L. Baron, England
We had a lovely and relaxing time in your beautiful cottage, and very much appreciate your helpful and friendly welcome. Many thanks to you both!
D. Horsburgh, Scotland
Laborie was absolutely perfect for a family vacation: the location, the size of the property, the pool, the helpfulness of Sean and Cécile. Things were ready when we got there, and Sean was more than helpful in getting us oriented. The pool was particularly nice -- the salt water makes such a huge difference for the kids and their eyes! The Barn was just the right size for a family of four. The village of St-Sozy had most of everything we needed, and there was loads to do in the area. We felt we had enough privacy while also being able to interact with the other visitors at the other cottages. We would definitely stay here again and already wish we were back. Thank you so much!
E. Todd-Doyle, Canada
Just a quick note to thank you again for a most wonderful stay in Laborie. We adored the location and made some great friends whilst there. We found the area of great interest and you are right there is plenty to do, the locals were friendly and the Foie Gras superb.
M & S. Duncan, England
We are home at last after 2315 miles and a super holiday. We loved our stay at Laborie and had a wonderful time
A. Schaay, United Kingdom
We have all been a little sad since we got home because none of us were ready to leave. It has been difficult going back to work when we all want to be in the pool playing tag! We would have been happy to stay all summer. Thank you again for such a wonderful stay, saving us from ants, putting up with us setting the pool alarm off all the time and helping us see the best of the area! We hope to return again one day.
S. Kilby, England
Just a quick note to say thank you very much for a wonderful stay. We
thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in your lovely house and we hope to return
K. Incz, England
Toni, I, Gordon and Gill just wanted to say thank you for making our stay a most enjoyable one. We loved and envied your idyllic set up in its most wonderful setting. The holiday was so relaxing; it’s really hard getting back to the grindstone of work. Anyway, until next time, thanks again.
S. Crosby, United Kingdom
Your friendship and company together with the ambience of the Bread Oven made Meyronne one of our most enjoyable and relaxing highlights of our trip. Thank you both for making us so welcome.
G & A. Eastcliffe, New Zealand
We have thought many times with pleasure of our sejour at Laborie; I can't tell you how envious we are of the period of warm weather that even allows the mad English to use the pool. We had been planning to write a note of appreciation to the nice folks at La Terrace; if you are ever over there, please mention that two Canadians have become their committed fans. Cheers et a bientot.

Let me say how much we enjoyed our stay at Laborie. We were made to feel so welcome and we had everything we could require. Thank you so much for all your help in making our week so good.

So thanks again for a wonderful holiday - a real find... we could
easily have stayed another week.
