    Een prima locatie, waar we (2 volwassenen plus hond) met veel plezier een week hebben doorgebracht.
    Vincent is een prima gastheer, attent zonder opdringerig te zijn, het onderkomen boven verwachting. Ik was vooraf wat sceptisch, 9,5 gemiddeld, er zal toch zeker wel wat aan te merken zijn, maar nee, we kunnen niks anders bedenken dan dat we direct weer terug zouden willen gaan.
    Kernwoorden, rust (nou ja, een enkele tractor), ruimte (zoveel als je wilt), comfort (zwembad, ruime douche, goede bedden), uitzicht (onder genot van hapje en drankje)

    Wij vierden een jubileum: deze nazomer waren we voor de 5e keer bij Vincent!
    Eerder in Van Gogh en Cezanne, nu voor de 2e keer in Gauguin, echt onze favoriet!
    Net als vorig jaar hadden we in de 1e week van oktober prachtig weer; veel zon, een windje, af en toe een kleine bui en de nachten heerlijk koel.
    Lekker buiten lezen, lunchen, een wijntje drinken, in de buitenkamer 's avonds eten en als de ochtenden fris waren: even de paletkachel aan.
    Natuurlijk elke dag samen in de spa genieten van de laatste zonnestralen, met al bubbelend een glaasje witte wijn.
    Bovendien gezellig bijpraten met gastheer Vincent; alleen jammer dat Anne Neel al weer naar Nederland was, nu hebben we nog steeds geen kennis gemaakt!
    Vincent, alweer hartelijk bedankt voor je warme gastvrijheid en tot de volgende keer!

    Wij zaten in Gaugin met 3 volwassenen en een kind. Buiten is er een ruime, smaakvol ingerichte overdekte eet- en zitkamer. Het zwembad is dicht genoeg buj het huis, zodat je je kind(eren) in de gaten kan houden. En toch ver genoeg , zodat je geen last hebt van het lawaai. De SPA vlak naast het buitenterras kan je zelf regelen. Heerlijk vertoeven daar op wat mindere dagen. Het huis is verder ruim en comfortabel ingericht. Ruime, moderne badkamer met grote douche. Twee ruime slaapkamers. Er is een vaatwasser in de keuken. Kook je graag veel zelf, dan is het handig om een extra pan en ovenschaal mee te hebben, vonden wij. Wij vonden het een grote luxe om niet aan beddegoed en handdoeken te moeten sleuren. Zijn ze vuil, dan krijg je gelijk nieuwe. Veel mooie, oude dorpjes en stadjes in de buurt. Ook veel markten en marchés gourmandes. Je hebt wel absoluut een auto nodig als je ergens wil geraken. Maison Vincent ligt afgelegen, maar dat geeft ook rust, vinden wij. Maison Vincent heeft een Vriendelujke, behulpzame eigenaar.

    Gereisd Met oudere kinderen in juni 2019

Restaurants, food & wine

We are close to the vineyards of Bergerac, Bordeaux, Duras and Cahors. There are several wine chateau which you could visit. Bergerac has a wine museum and a wine house where you can taste and buy wines.

The well known 'Foi gras', duck or goose liver, is sold in various locations and on markets.
There are weekly markets everywhere, the one on Sunday in Issigeac is certainly worth a visit and the local town of Cancon holds its market on Mondays.
During July and August the surrounding towns hold open air night markets where local producers provide excellent cooked meals and perhaps some entertainment. The closest are at Monflanquin and Montaut, just 15 minutes away.
