An oasis of calm, not far from the action

  • 5 of 5

Arnaud received us warmly (after chasing a run-away horse) and provided us with everything we needed to enjoy our stay at Les Tournesols.

This is a beautifully modernized stone house, that was clean and well-equipped, better than we expected.

A very satisfying stay. Thank you Arnaud.

Liam & Margaret

All that we could have wished for and more

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic two week holiday here. The property is stunning, has everything you need and is very comfortable and clean. Nice big beds, well equipped kitchen, UK TV channels and comfortable living room.The pictures really don't do it justice. Arnaud and his family were lovely and very helpful in making sure we were comfortable and that we enjoyed our stay. We had two dogs with us who loved the large and fully private and secure garden. We all enjoyed the walk down to the river right from the doorstep every morning where we had our very own secluded beach for the dogs to do some stick chasing and swimming while we watched the kingfishers and the canoes float by. It's a truly beautiful part of the world and the property is perfectly positioned to enjoy visits to the surrounding towns and countryside. Among the highlights were visits to Beynac, Domme, La Rocque Gageac, Sarlat and Rocomadour - all very close. We particularly enjoyed dining at L'Angelu's in Montfort where the owner cooked us an 'off the menu' special which was delicious. We can thoroughly recommend staying here, everyone is very friendly and we will certainly be back. Delightful and very sad to have to come home!

The owner & his wife were so kind & helpful!

The property was spotless, very well equipped & convenient to so many local areas of interest.

A visit to Aurnaud's farm was really worthwhile. Would return in a heartbeat!

Fabulous house! Fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped house in Vitrac, situated approx ten minutes drive from Sarlat, Domme and La Rocque- Gageauc. Banyan and castlenaud castles, and the gardens of Marqueyssac all worth a visit. Monpazier is approx 1 hour away but enroute to Bergerac airport.

Very modern bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen dining area. Plenty of towels (including pool towels) and comfortable sun loungers. We even used the pool at the end of September(un heated!).

Walking distance to a couple of restaurants, snack bar and two canoe hire places- a great way to spend half a day!

Nearest boulangerie is just over 1 mile away. Big supermarket on the outskirts of Sarlat ( approx 6 min drive).

The house had everything we needed and more!

I have been to the area a number of times and this is the best location and accommodation I have had!

Arnaud met us at the property to welcome us- thank you!

Lovely holiday....

  • 4 of 5

We have just spent a fantastic week staying at this property. The photos do not do the property the justification it deserves. The garden and pool are great and the kitchen very clean and modern. The location is quiet but with the river beach and restaurant within s 2/3 min walk.

Arnaud was very accomodating.

The area is stunning and we hope to return to the dordogne soon.
