This spacious stone barn has four bedrooms (of which one is on the ground floor) being two doubles and two twins. There are two bathrooms; one with a shower cubicle, bidet, toilet etc. on the ground floor and the other with a full size bath and toilet upstairs. It has a large galleried living area with exposed beams, comfortable sofas and chairs and satellite TV. Open plan stairs lead up to the gallery giving access to three of the four bedrooms. Down a short flight of stairs from the living area there is a large well equipped kitchen and dining area with tiled worktops, gas cooker, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and a large American fridge/freezer. The garden which overlooks the village has a terrace with garden furniture and a BBQ.
Due to lack of space here, there are not as many pictures as I would like: Please contact me to see more.

Exceeded all expectations
This delightful place was recommended to me by 2 other families. There's no better endorsement than return visitors, both these families had been 3 times each! I loved every second of my holiday and have already booked for next year. Stunning place, hospitable, friendly and knowledgable hosts. Amazing.
A lovely 4 bedroom cottage ideal for a family
This is a lovely cottage in peaceful rural surroundings on a very private site. Peter & Nancy are delightful and attentive hosts and their Sunday evening barbecues, when they invite the residents in all their properties to mingle, sets the holiday off to a great start. The communal pool is big and spacious with plenty of sunbeds. The delights of the Dordogne can be explored with ease from this site. The amenities of the site and the area are ideal for family holidays.
