The Kimble family, June
We stayed at Acabanes at the beginning of June and it was incredible. The house and grounds were immaculate. The land around the house is perfect for children, with our young son free to safely run around in the extensive garden area. This was helped by the fact that the pool area is slightly separated from the garden. The pool itself is a great size, and was usable even on cooler days thanks to it being heated. The rooms themselves were all a really good size. Our group consisted of one couple with a 2 year old, who had their pick of two areas with a separate kids room and family style bathroom, and 2 grown up adults who could both have their own en suite rooms on a different floor of the house each with its own terraced area. We've stayed in a number of self catering holiday lets, and have never experienced one more well appointed. Everything we needed was provided. The kitchen was well stocked with crockery and cooking equipment, going above and beyond the standard you'd usually experience. Two barbecues made it really enjoyable to stay in of an evening, and if you had a bigger group than ours this would not be an issue at all, with multiple fridges available for you to stock up. There were more than enough sun loungers for all of us, with space for the group to sit by the pool or in the gardens dependent on what people fancied. Perfect if you're in a bigger group. There were also multiple bikes for adults and children, and helmets too, all of which were of a really high standard. For children the place was incredibly well suited, with all the equipment you could possibly need from the more standard stair gates and cots (there were 3 available when we stayed, meaning we could choose where our child slept), to high chairs, and even travel booster seats which we could take out when we went out for a meal. There were also books, games and toys to all keep young ones entertained, though with the outside space and pool these were rarely needed. Apart from the wendy house which was a huge hit! On top of the place itself, Tracey the host couldn't have been more hospitable. She did a shop for us to be available on our arrival which having driven for almost 10 hours straight was a godsend. She then came round the day after we arrived to talk us through how everything worked which was really useful. Also the recommendations she gave for meals and trips were all brilliant. Including the cook Matthew who prepared some lovely ready made meals for our arrival. There is plenty to do in the surrounding areas. The wine tasting at Feely vineyard was enjoyed by the whole family. The surrounding villages offer plenty of options if you want to have lunch out or just fancy a break from the pool. For dinner we had an amazing 6 course tasting menu with wine for 38 Euros as well as a trip to a michelin star restaurant (perfect for a night without the kid/s). All in all we couldn't recommend this venue more highly, whether you have children with you or you're a group of adults.
The Morgans July
The property, the grounds, its location and all the facilities and equipment are all brilliant. My family and I, together with my sisters family and my mum, 10 of us in total had an amazing two weeks in the villa. Tracey was absolutely amazing to deal with and her contact with me, information she provides and suggestions of things to see and do were simply the best I have ever experienced. We had a wonderful two weeks in the villa, swimming in the pool, bike riding and exploring the surrounding countryside. Be sure to visit Chateau Thenac at the top of the hill, we did a wine tour and tasting which was excellent. Thanks Tracey for making our holiday in your villa so wonderful and relaxing, you really have thought of everything!
The Raiz family May
My family and I stayed for a week with a small baby and well what can I say. This is the best accommodation by far that we have ever stayed in. We have travelled around the world and stayed in 5 star accommodation and never have we experienced such luxury! The rooms we stayed in are private, one with a terrace and one with balcony. The salt water pool was heated and we loved taking our baby in every day. There are too many facilities to mention! all baby facilities were provided as well as a pool table, many games, picnic bags, bbq's, BBQ equipment. the list goes on and on. This place would be perfect for small or large families as well as families with small babies. I think this will be our regular summer vacation and are already planning our holiday for next summer!
The Copp family June
We had the most wonderful time in this amazing property. The house has everything you could possibly want and to excellent standard. We arrived to complementary wine and fantastic service and care taken to ensure a fabulous holiday. We all loved it and will be returning hopefully next year. Thank you Tracey.
Glyn family June
Our holiday this year was very much enjoyed at Acabanes, our grandchildren were thoroughly thrilled with the accommodation and said they would love to live there. We could not believe that the property had so much to offer, we have booked already for next year. The swimming pool was such an attraction to all of us. The rooms were beautifully equipped and so much room for all 10 of us, plenty of gardens for the children to run and play around in, so unbelievable how much was in the villa for everyone to use, the older ones of us enjoyed being in the gym that was also for our use. Close to the shops, Eymet, and Bergerac and of course surrounded by vineyards.and pretty villages surrounding the villa. We thoroughly recommend this beautiful villa.
The Morris family March
We flew to Bergerac from Souhampton with Flybe on 25th March for one week to visit family in the area. The average temperature was 16 degrees and we enjoyed using the heated pool, such a rarity to find in French villas.lovley time to visit this area, enjoyed visiting the local markets and restaurants. Numerous ones a short distance from Acabanes.The owners have thought of everything for all ages to enjoy a wonderful holiday.
The Mitchell family May
Nothing was too much trouble from the moment we booked our family holiday. When we informed the owners that we would be taking our 9 month old baby on his first ever holiday, they made sure we had everything we could possibly need - the gite seemed to be already well equipped which is one of the reasons we had wanted to stay there in the first place - a stress free break was key! Also not having to pack loads in the car was a bonus... but the owners had thought of so much more and provided items very happily that we were concerned we might need as first time parents - and everything was waiting for us and set up on our arrival at the beautiful gite. it made our holiday so much more relaxing knowing he was entertained, safe and happy and that we didn't have to worry about bringing too much. He loved the pool, heated to perfection as he is a real water baby but also enjoyed relaxing pool side as did we, playing in the Wendy house, watching the world go by from the balconies which are safely enclosed. It was a bonus to have a pop up play pen so we could let him play happily for a few moments whilst meals and drinks were prepared - he was crawling fast! A friendly host who appreciates what it means to go on holiday with children really does make a difference and we will definitely be returning soon with even less of the kitchen sink now we know everything is kindly provided.
