About Karen

Our family bought our lovely farmhouse in 2004 to use primarily as a holiday home, with the intention of spending longer periods of time there. We have spent many years holidaying at the house and have made it a home from home.

Karen purchased this farmhouse in 2004

Why Karen chose Lalinde

Les Deux Puits is a large farmhouse with an attached barn. Its a 5 minute walk into the small village of Sauveboeuf, with no close neighbours, its private and rural. Ideal for family holidays where people want to enjoy the nearby countryside, but need the facilities of a local town (Lalinde 3km) within a short distance away.

Spacious and comfortable home, perfectly located for exploring region

  • 5 of 5

As a group of 7 adults, Les Deux Puits was a perfect choice for our holiday. The rooms (and there are many of them) are all on a grand scale, plus three bathrooms and downstairs WC - this really is a manor. We found the beds comfortable and of good quality. The house is very well equipped throughout and has a nice, lived in feel - it's obviously a loved home, not just a holiday let. Our favourite area was the patio/pool area at the back of the house. We ate here every evening and spent many happy hours cooling down in the pool (weather was fantastic on every day of our holiday). Lalinde is a lovely village with a fabulous market (Thursday morning) and there are lots of similar villages explore nearby. There are also caves, vineyards, chateaux and some beautiful medieval towns all an easy drive away.

Beautiful French Farmhouse

  • 4 of 5

We arrived after driving through the night to find a fantastic Farmhouse with all we could ask for. There is heaps of character alongside modern amenities, satellite TV and wifi were a godsend for the little ones!

The house is spacious and when friends came out for a week, there was plenty of space for everyone to have a bit of privacy.

The outdoor terrace and pool were great, BBQ and fridge welcome additions.

The old barn had lots of advantages, even just as a bit of shade from the midday sun.

Shops and supermarkets very nearby. Karen, the owner was easily contactable and Brian the 'handyman' incredibly helpful.

A fantastic fortnights holiday, would love to come back again!

Very comfortable house in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

My familiy and I stayed at Les Duex Puits this Summer and had a wonderful time! The house is beautiful and fully-equipped with everything we needed! When we arrived, the house was clean and all the beds and towls were ready waiting for us. The outside areas are also great, we ate most of our meals outdoors as it was very hot during our stay. The area is great for day trips to visit chateauxs, go wine tasting or going for a bike ride. We stayed for a week but could have easily stayed much longer!

Superb location in a spacious traditional French House

  • 5 of 5

Great location close to the Dordogne and the small town of Lalinde with supermarket, restaurants and cafes a 5 minute drive away. The house is very comfortable and extremely spacious, with separate bathrooms for all the bedrooms and with a super games room loved by our teenagers with bikes available to use. The house and kitchen are well equipped (plus the essential Wi fi) with the choice of eating outside the front of the house or on the terrace by the pool. An outside kitchen area complete with refrigeration a bonus. Although on a road, and with a train line across the way - Les Deux Puits is very quiet - and when the doors are shut you can hear a pin drop! We enjoyed the leisurely pace of life and just being able to sit an enjoy watching the local life go by at Cafes. A day kayaking at Limeuil was one of our highlights - in mid July we just turned up, but in the August holidays booking is recommended. A lovely old house, well maintained by the owners.

A large and very comfortable holiday home

  • 5 of 5

The house is very large, extremely comfortable and nicely furnished. It is conveniently situated just outside the pretty village of Lalinde, and close to a supermarket and restaurants. We had a very relaxing stay and would recommend it.

Les Deux Puits - Absolutely magnificent.

  • 5 of 5

We just spent the last two weeks of June at this superbly appointed and fitted farmhouse on the Dordogne and had one of the best holidays of our lives. Les Deux Puits is massive and comfortably sleeps upto eight. Everything has been considered from an excellent swimming pool, an outside cooking area, games, cycles etc. We were very fortunate to have scorching weather the whole time with one (spectacular) thunderstorm overnight which had dried out by morning. As a result we didn't feel the need to do too much driving and sightseeing and enjoyed the sun terrace and pool with glass of wine in hand.My wife and I drove down from the Eurotunnel with our little Bichon Frise dog and had an overnight stop each way. We were joined by son and daughter with husband who flew into Bergerac and stayed for a week. Easy to get to the airport from the house and might consider doing that ourselves in the future with a hire car. Nearest town Lalinde is very pretty. Lots of good bars and restaurants. Excellent market on Thursdays. Bergerac is also easy to get to. We enjoyed a night in the main square with the locals watching France in the World Cup. Certainly a better experience than watching England. There is an intermarche very close which catered for our needs. Went for a meal in Lalinde on my daughter and husband's first anniversary. Intending to leave the car there and pick it up next morning. No taxis available when we tried to get home..no problem..the waiter in the bar commandeered a people carrier and took us all home!!The house has some beautiful artwork up which we understand were done by a family member. The owners are very accomodating and researched a local vet for us to have the pooch's passport stamped for return. Can't recommend this highly enough and you will certainly have the best of times if you choose to stay here. Back in the work grind I keep daydreaming of the great holiday we had.Fabulous.
