Relaxation, Massage and Reflexology is also available in the comfort of your gite. For teenagers who are "bored" you can arrange for Malcolm to take them out in the canoe or for a cycle ride so that you can enjoy some quality time together - please contact us for more information. Both of us are CRB cleared to work with children. If you're flying with a baby and don't want to bring all those bulky items, then we can provide you with a baby welcome pack. We have a selection of bikes and helmets for most ages and can advise on the best cycle routes to suit your ability. We also have a great supply of both indoor and outdoor toys and games for boys and girls. With two young children of our own, we understand the needs of families on holiday.

La Porcherie: A wonderful place to spend our first family holiday with our 18month old. The owners are lovely and the setting is perfect. We were immediately at ease on arrival and the welcome pack and evening meal waiting for us were fabulous additions after the car journey down through France. The gite had everything we needed for our little one; the garden, pool and surrounding countryside provided everything else we needed for a lovely holiday. It benefits from the peace and quiet of the countryside but is only a short drive away from small villages and towns with the necessary boulangeries, supermarkets and cash machines. Bathing rivers and lakes are within 20 minutes drive and some of the most beautiful towns in the Dordogne are easily reached for a days visit. We highly recommend the Chauffeur Gites for your holiday. Rating 5 out of 5, Watts family, Sept 2011.
We have just booked our third holiday at Chaffour Gite Holidays. It is a fantastic family friendly environment. Beautiful surroundings, convenient location for both river beach and town. The family that own the complex are wonderful and recommended some great days (and evenings) out. This is a great family holiday that has kept us going for the whole year! Rating 5 out of 5, Mary, Aug 2010.
 

Holiday Reviews from the Owners’ site

I am just writing to say thank you for a lovely holiday. It was the best holiday we have had with our children and will keep us going for the next few months - O'Toole Family - August 2009
Lovely. Very clean. Great facilities. And quite frankly a relief as that moment when you get to your accommodation on a holiday can really be make or break can’t it?! Some places just don’t look like the pictures but La Porcherie does and it’s great - Baker Family - August 2009
A real haven, we love it here. The gite, the hospitality and France never lets us down. Hopefully we will make a 4th visit next year - Gettinby Family August 2009
Excellent welcome - beautiful house - Hulley Family - August 2009
