Like staying in a comfortable antique

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous location to explore the Dordogne area. Beautiful old house with lots of character but well equipped and comfortable. We had such a great week. The kids loved the pool and exploring around the properties and our highlight was the village square bbq and meeting some of the locals (within walking distance). Made to feel welcome. We would definitely like to visit again. Thank you Rachel and Neal.

full of french character, fab views, peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Even better than the photos! A wonderful house with bags of charm which stayed beautifully cool even in 40 degree heat. The shady terrace with gorgeous village views was the perfect place to relax and we loved the large warm pool. Would definitely recommend it and come back again.

Charming Character House

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying in "Chantegrel" with its' authentic charm of a typical "Périgourdine" house and its' the lovely view over the village of Auriac. The family enjoyed having the spacious amenities of the house, with it's different levels allowing everyone their "space". The house was fully equipped and clean upon arrival (even the flower boxes were filled with geraniums). Auriac is a great central location to what the Dordogne has to offer, and coming back at the end of the day to enjoy the pool was a plus. Rachel and Neal are welcoming and very helpful. Will definitely stay here again.

Lovely house, great couple of weeks

  • 4 of 5

A very nice stay in a lovely, characterful house. House was as described, and the owners were friendly and helpful. We liked Montignac very much, and enjoyed the fabulous prehistoric sites between Montignac and Les Eyzies (especially Lascaux II). Kids enjoyed the pool and the ping pong! Would definitely recommend.

Lovely old property with fantastic views of the local village. Full of character and old world charm set in the heart of the beautiful Dordogne. Family enjoyed the super swimming pool and had great fun canoeing the local rivers and exploring the caves. Will be back again next year.
