Maison Saint-Aubin

What a wonderful week in your beautiful home! We have spent many a holiday in a French gîte and this one was our favourite! Domme is beautiful and we enjoyed la forêt des singes as well as a superb day on the Dordogne canoeing from Vitrac to Beynac. The days chilling by the pool were our favourite - such a brilliant place with a lot of peace and quiet.

Le Menique

Le Menique is a beautifully presented house situated in perfect seclusion in the countryside. The views from the house and the pool are breath taking with the summer room providing perfect shade should you have had enough of sun bathing.

Les Rocans

As our week draws to a close I wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you both for another fabulous week staying in your lovely house. As with last year, we have thoroughly enjoyed our time, both chilling around the pool and house as well as exploring the local area - so many treats to be found.

Villa Azure

Villa Azure is a lovely property and a great place to stay. We would certainly recommend it! We were greeted by the very pleasant owner, Jean Luc, who was a wonderful host and provided lots of information on the villa itself and surrounding areas.

Maison Charvin

Just a quick note to say WOW - we are blown away by your house! It is amazing, we have travelled to France every year for about 10 years but already we know that this will be the best yet! Nothing has disappointed, just thrilled- we are keen cooks (eaters really) and your kitchen is perfect. Off to have a quick wander around the village before returning to cook our traditional first night supper of scallops and fresh prawns.

I have to say we have been really impressed with the service we have received from your company. Everyone that has contacted me has been polite and highly efficient with prompt responses.

Thank you very much

I just wanted to say that the phone call was great and all the email communication from you was part of my decision to book through Pure France thank you very much.

Another fantastic experience with Pure France

We're fairly certain we want to return next year. I'll be in touch about that in due course, but in the meantime, a gazillion thanks for another fantastic experience with Pure France. We are among your biggest fans.

Wide range of quality houses

This is our third time of using Pure France, after years of using many other rental agencies, and we will be definitely using them again, due to the wide range of quality houses, ease of booking, excellent administration and helpfulness.

You've exceeded your own efficiency

You've exceeded your own efficiency... So many thanks, Brenda, for your efficiency and being such a joy to 'do business' with.
