Beautiful house with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our 2 week holiday here & had a lovely time. It's a beautiful house which is well equipped for everything you'll need & there's plenty of books if you're a bookworm. The pool was a blessing each day as it was very hot. You'll definitely need a car to venture places but if it's peace & quiet you're after then this holiday home is for you.

Great rural location for relaxing holiday.

  • 4 of 5

The house had everything we needed and there was plenty of room inside & lovely covered terrace for wet weather. There's a large garden and pool area which kept the children happy. Lovely village of Plazac nearby for morning croissants & plenty of restaurants in surrounding villages. Lots of caves to visit locally and canoeing on the local river was a highlight. Friendly, helpful owner with advice on where to find various activities on offer.

A wonderful two weeks relaxing around the pool & exploring the local area.

Lovely house & Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a month mid June to Mid July 2014. Shelly the owner was wonderful made us feel very welcome. She is on hand nearby but never intrusive. The house is surrounded by lovely countryside and walks especially appreciated by Hugo & Henry. We found much to do and see with plenty of choice for meals in the surrounding Villages and Towns. We would highly recommend Shelly's lovely home. We will be back ASAP.

PLazac near Montignac

Perfect peace

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Shelley's property late on a Sunday evening, the directions were spot on and although not requested there was a stock of essentials in the fridge. I was so grateful for that. The location in the middle of nowhere with stunning views of the beautiful Dordogne landscape was just the antidote to our hectic lives. We enjoyed poolside reading and outings alike, Montignac is just lovely to potter around and the market is sweet and the canoeing and caves on the Vezere were interesting. It seems like there is a chateau around every bend in the river so we had a good choice of culture and I must highly recommend the Eyrignac Manor Garden if you want to be blown away, I am a keen gardener and I was amazed at the place. Shelley was very kind and attentive without being remotely intrusive, a really nice lady who works hard to create a great holiday venue. I would describe it as a perfect rural retreat and we really enjoyed the panoramic views of the French countryside all around us.

Absolutely perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our family of varying ages for 2 weeks in 2013. The location is great, easily accessible for all the tourist sites but not so close that we had to suffer any crowds. The main tourist sites at Perigueux, Sarlat, Montignac, Domme, Beynac etc are all a short drive away. The property itself is incredibly well equipped and offers all and more that you would need for a holiday. The decor is very tasteful, bright and airy and spotlessly clean. Also lots of space both inside and out. I would thoroughly recommend the property to anyone looking for a sightseeing holiday in the Dordogne or even if you just want a relaxing few weeks by the pool, perfect.
