About the Owner

I have lived and worked in France for the past 16 years and enjoy my work selling houses.

St Cloud belongs to my brother & sister in-law who restored it from a complete ruin into the lovely home it is now.

Beautiful pool and garden

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed in the St Cloud villa for a week in August 2015. The house is large and very comfortable with everything that we needed. All the fixtures and fittings were clean and in good condition. The pool was lovely and the gardens were simply beautiful. We really loved the outdoor table for meals, and its aspect was perfect – lovely and sunny in the morning and with plenty of shade on a hot afternoon. The only problem we had was a power cut (to the whole village) in a thunderstorm, which took a few hours to come back on. Johanna was very helpful throughout. The vote at the end of the holiday was that we would all be very glad to come back again.

From the Owner

Our Family just love this part of the Dordogne as it is on the border with the Gironde and to us the vines make it really feel like France. The weather is so much better than the centre and middle of France, lovely warm evenings.
