About the Owner

This has been my family's holiday home for over 14 years in which time our four children have grown up and have started to come by themselves with friends. We're in the middle of the village with easy access to all amenities, yet completely private, and the children have always been able to roam in complete safety. Being able to take a few euros and buy the bread for breakfast from the boulangerie built their confidence in French from a very young age! We've had holidays here just as one family, with other families, as groups of adults, and as groups of young adults with equal success.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From the minute we walked through the door we felt as though we'd come home. We have enjoyed doing absolutely nothing - what a joy! Pool was a massive hit with the children who have spent the week like shrivelled prunes. Great family home with everything that we could possibly need. Perfect!

Lovely peaceful house for a great relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

First impressions were that we had chosen well as house was all we hoped for with everything we needed for a well earned rest - even some foodstuffs we had forgotten to buy. Spent a whole week lounging around the pool or inside when it got too hot reading, eating and sleeping. Great location as it is not too far from places to visit but remote enough to be away from the crowds. Village baker, butcher and shop more than adequate but nearby supermarket had anything else. Enjoyed walking to collect a loaf each day and the sunday market had lovelt fresh fruit and local cheeses. Euro16 and learning poker occupied most evenings and Brexit made for some interesting discussions locally - kept our head down for a day. Took the owners advice and went kayaking at Brantom which we all loved and the meal by the river after was enjoyed by all and great value. Spent idle hours playing table tennis but sadly I got thrashed by my whole family - I blame the wine. All in all had a wonderful time and will certainly go back.

Fantastic spacious house

Great spacious house with gorgeous pool. Clean and well equipped with plenty to do in the local area. Great information throughout the booking process, and we found the information at the house really useful too.

fabulous house

  • 5 of 5

We have had a fantastic time at this fabulous house, with the stunning Chateau Jumilhac at the end of the Road.

The house has everything you need, if you want to do nothing then you have the lovely swimming pool to laze around, if you want to be more active lots of activities are a short distance away.

Ideal if you have children with the lovely play area at the top of the house.

i would highly recommend this house we have had a lovely time.

Relaxing holidays

  • 5 of 5

I really recommend the property Maison au Coin. We were two families (10 persons). We enjoyed the house. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Ww just get there and immediately we get the key and enter in th e house. We received some advise and a short tour into the house by Carol(who is in charge of the maintenance of the property. The house has a good variety of books and good set of cds to enjoy a bit of music. \the swimming pool was great and clean. \our kids loved. House the possibility to make barbecue and to have a good time in the garden area near the pool. THe house is also well located and close to a beautiful Castle Jumilac Le GRand. I recommend this property to have a good time for relax and also to enjoy different activities in the surroundings and closer cities.

From the Owner

I first stayed in the village as a child with my French pen-friend's family. When holidaying in the area with friends many years later in 2001, we visited the village and I fell in love with the area all over again. Over a bottle of wine (as you do), we bought the house and have never regretted it!. We were never tempted to look for a barn style property away from habitation as one of the luxuries for us is to be able to do most things without jumping in the car and the children have always had the freedom to roam in complete safety as we used to when we were children.
