Relaxing summer break
Laborie is such a beautiful and welcoming holiday home. Cécile and Sean helpfully provided us with information about the area and tips on places to go. The house is located very close to the small village of Meyronne and the Dordogne, and within easy travel distance of caves and traditional French villages if you want to explore. Otherwise the pool and scenic views from the garden are perfect if you'd prefer to put your feet up and relax. We visited as a family in August with parents and children and all of us agree this was an amazing holiday. Would love to come back! .

"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!"

"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 the 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."

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 activites 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.

"A stunning location matched only by the standard of the property and welcome from the owners Sean and Cecile. 2009 will be our 3rd year of returning to Laborie - scenery, food (drink!), relaxation, sun, culture...it remains our key 'wind down' vacation of the year. 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."

"Laborie was set in the most peaceful surroundings & the views were lovely. We did not experience any noise other than the odd tractor. (Fantastic)The property was spotlessly clean & there was no problem accessing it. The pool was good with beds around & the garden had outdoor furniture & barbecue."
