Guestbook comments from the manager

"We have had the most fantastic and relaxing week at La Brise, thank you so much! Nine of us stayed and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful weather, lounging by the pool, feasting with the BBQ! We recommend the Perigueux market on Wednesdays and the night market in Levignac. We very much hope to come and stay again next year!"
