Guestbook comments from the owner

So beautiful and peaceful, I can't remember feeling so chilled out. Tina and I just sat around the pool with a bottle of rose it was perfection. Terry

It was an ideal place for the children to play in safety whilst we could relax knowing they were safe. Philip and Pamela

From the Owner

The house was originally a home and smallholding of a french couple who were retiring to live with their children. My parents bought the smallholding, renovated the house, put in a pool and added modern conveniences. They knew the Dordogne because of its food and wine which in turn meant plenty of summer sunshine. Leaving the ferry in the morning we could be sitting by the pool with a glass of Rose in the late afternoon sun in the real french countryside. Nowadays with flights to Bergerac the ferries are no longer the only option of travel to this beautiful area.

From the Owner

The house is still only one residence although it looks larger as with the original farm buildings it sits in around 3 acres of grounds. This means the house is very secluded and free of external noise and disturbance. The house is elevated and south facing and not overlooked. In front of the main gate is a minor road that leads to Bergerac. We found the house and grounds an ideal holiday environment for a young family. There is plenty of room for the kids to play and have adventures, but is safe and secure enough for us as responsible parents to relax and wind down.
