Guest CommentsThank you Bob and Bernie for a wonderful holiday. Everything at La Tabatière was sheer magic…the birds, the garden, roses in profusion, the cosy, comfortable cottage so well situated beside the river and many places of interest only a short drive away. A time to remember… very different from our home in South Africa. -Jenny and Beryl, May 2009.
“A little piece of heaven on earth. We had a wonderful vacation with lots of chateaux, grottes, canoeing, delicious food and wine. All the best, Thomas and Jill from Austria.” July 2009
“Thank you both for your gracious hospitality. Everything was beyond our expectations. We hope to see you again.”- Georgene and Ralph, Cape Cod, USA June 2009.
“A wonderful place to stay, in a perfect location. Managed to visit quite a few of the local attractions and did a canoe trip down the river to Castlenaud (which is highly recommended and not too strenuous while on holiday!!) Really enjoyed the view of Domme from the terrace and the glow worms added a magical touch in the evenings.”- Darren and Helen Southwell, England. June 2009.
“Thank you Bob and Bernie for making us so welcome in your delightful little cottage. We shall have pleasure in recommending you to our family and friends at home in New Zealand” -Faye and Michael July 2009.

It’s a super venue, really well equipped accommodation and we will certainly recommend it to our friends.” –Sheila and Mike Adamson, England. August 2009
“Our visit to the beautiful Dordogne valley was made even more enjoyable by the warm and friendly welcome, thank you Bernadette and Bob.
