About the Owner

We live in Salisbury, Wiltshire. We both enjoy cycling, golf and walking. We bought Acabanes in 2000 after holidaying for many years in the Dordogne as a family. Acabanes needed extensive renovation but we thought it was worth all the hard work, due to it's location 8 minutes from Chateau Vigiers golf course. We hope you have a wonderful holiday and are here to arrange everything for you to make your holiday stress free - Tracey and Adrian Jones

Year property purchased: 2002

Why this location?

We love this part of the Dordogne as it is peaceful and rural with wonderful scenery, but still only 20 minutes to Bergerac and 1 hour from Bordeaux. The area has many colourful markets and night markets, a wide variety of good restaurants and lots of things to do for all ages. Golf is only 8 minutes away- Chateau des Vigiers - which is a pleasure to play. The house is surrounded by a network of quiet lanes which are safe and ideal for walking and cycling. Wild boar, deer and birds of prey are numerous. There are also numerous vineyards offering wine tasting, as well as the world famous St Emillion and Monbazillac. After travelling all over the world, this special area has proved to be very special. We hope you feel the same.

What are the unique benefits of the property?

Acabanes has many extras to ensure guests have a special holiday. For children the play area, wendy house, sand pit, trampoline and heated pool are a big hit. For older "kids" the football goals, table tennis, pool table and 50in plasma are a treat. We provide complimentary, unlimited, fast speed broadband. Bath and pool towels are also provided free of charge. We try to provide the best for our holidaymakers, with superking master beds, very good quality mattresses, duvets and Bedeck linen. For romantics, there is a wonderful hand made four poster bed. All master bedrooms have tea/coffee facilities. The kitchen is well stocked with le creuset, Royal Doulton and a Rangemaster large stove. With many terraces, plenty of new bikes and a sauna you will be truly spoilt.
