Toujours le même plaisir de retrouver ce gite confortable. La Région est toujours aussi belle. Plaisir de revoir certains lieux particulièrement appréciés et découverte de nouveaux petits coins agréables.
Comme les années précédents, merci! à l'année prochaine! "

M & M, Jodoigne, Belgique - Hortensia Septembre 2013

"Once again we have enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing stay in this beautiful Gite. A well appointed and homely base. The situation, in particular the view, never fails to please. The village is an added bonus with just enough life and interest to give charm and added value!"

G & S, Kent, UK - Begonia September 2013

"A late booking and what a stroke of luck. Really enjoyed location, La Tour, view, site...."

P & L London, UK - La Tour August 2013

"We have had a lovely two weeks in this beautifully located French Gite. The amazing view will be missed by us all when we go home. We have had the most gorgeous weather- the raincoats have remained in the car throughout the two weeks! Highlights have included; family cycle rides, a trip to Sarlat, a day kayaking on the Dordogne and a daily dip in the pool. Thanks for a brilliant holiday!"

N & M and children, UK - Begonia July 2013

"Great stay in a lovely Gite. The area was wonderful, with lots of activities to keep all ages interested. The view from the Gite for breakfast and dinner was amazing - can't see how that can be improved! I'm sure we'll be coming back here to the Dordogne and can't think of a better base than Les Gites de Carlux. Thank you!"

F & L, St Albans, UK - Begonia June 2013

"Gite agréable dans un cadre reposant avec une vue incroyable sur Carlux."

I & B Hartlepool, UK - La Tour September 2012

De retour de Carlux, je viens vous dire combien nous avons été contentes ma cousine et moi. Votre gîte est très agréable, et nous avons bien profité de la région. C'était un plaisir.

M & Y, Buckingham, UK - Jasmine August 2012

"After many visits to France this was our first to the Dordogne and we were not disappointed. A most beautiful part of the country. La Tour has been a wonderful home to us during our stay. The views are outstanding, especially at night, watching the lights from the village. A very relaxing, enjoyable holiday. Thank you for sharing your lovely French home. We hope to return one day in the future."

B & M and the girls, Holland - Cyclamen July 2012

"Thank you for our lovely stay at La Tour. This was my first visit to the Dordogne and I found the area beautiful and the local people very hospitable and friendly. Carlux is a village from a postcard and La Tour is the perfect French getaway. I won't forget the view from the bedroom window/patio. Looking forward to our next stay here already!"

J & R, Crewe UK - La Tour July 2012

"A perfect break! Peace, comfort and that beautiful view! We have loved our stay in Begonia - so clean and comfortable and a feel of home with the patio pots and rose bush. Can recommend the local restaurant ‘GR6' and Sarlat and Domme for trips. We would love to return."

P & R, Kent, UK - Begonia June 2012

"Many thanks for a lovely stay. Our two weeks have been very comfortable in the Gite, which we have found to be very well equipped. The bath, stairgates and a UK TV were particularly appreciated for Ailsa. All in all a great couple of weeks in a beautiful part of France. Our Gite & the complex overall certainly contributed to the success of the holiday!"

R & S, Dunblane, UK - Hortensia June 2012

"The house is very beautiful, the view no words! We stayed here with our little girl, 2.5 years. Swimming pool, garden, playground, she found it! .........Thank you!"

Family S, Benkel en Rodenrijs, Holland - Begonia June 2012

«Our first but not our last visit to Les Gites de Carlux.  A really wonderful gite, beautiful surroundings and great motorcycling roads.  We were both able to relax from the minute we arrived, peace and tranquillity were immediate.  I was able to read and do nothing much with ease.  We have enjoyed the food, wine and beer in abundance.  Seven days of sunshine were a bonus.  Thank you.»

M & S, Billingshurst, UK - Giroflee June 2011

«An absolutely fantastic week.  The weather has been superb - we've enjoyed sending email photos back to a rain soaked North Devon.  Have travelled around and seen many of the beautiful sites on offer and sampled French cuisine - delicious.  La Tour is a lovely gite, very spacious and airy.  The bed is extremely comfy and the bedroom enjoys the views across to the valley - what a way to wake up in the morning!  A superbly run site - will highly recommend it to the folks back home.  Thank you.»

A & I, North Devon, UK - La Tour June 2011

S, S & K, Huizen, Holland - Hortensia September 2011

«Très agréable séjour dans ce magnifique gîte (lumineux, décoré et meublé avec goût, vue sur le village).  La région est superbe et compte de nombreux villages de charme et de caractère, parfois perdus au milieu de nulle part, ce qui les préserve ! De plus, l'automne pointe le bout de nez, parant la nature de chaleureux coloris.  C'est clair, nous reviendrons! 

Merci à Maura de mettre ce gîte à disposition des visiteurs de passage en Dordogne et grand merci à Julian pour sa disponibilité et ses conseils.»

"Tusen takk for et hyggelig opphold i Dordogne. Thank you for a wonderful stay in the Dordogne. Hortensia is the home away from home. Carlux was a fantastic base for our one week stay. We managed to visit at least 1-2 areas (sights) each day, and still managed to be ‘home’ for some pool time. We have yet to explore much more of France, but I know this will always bring back fond memories. We plan to be back again one day..... "

O & V, Oslo, Norway – Hortensia, July 2010



"This has been out fifth time in Carlux & our first time in ‘La Tour’ & we have had a wonderful time. We have liked all the gites but we think that ‘La Tour’ scores highly – love the huge light room downstairs and the spacious room upstairs – the view is amazing! ......thank you for letting us stay in your lovely gite. "


J & E, Worcester, UK – La Tour, July 2010
