Friendly couple in their late 40's who wish for you to have a stress free and memorable holiday.
Have finally made my dream come true and spend 4 months every year in the sunny Dordogne / Lot et Garonne region. I love having holiday makers to stay and want them to have a fabulous time and to see all the amazing sites that this region has to offer.
Dawn Hillier purchased this house in 2009
When I first saw Courtalou I instantly fell in love with the stonework of the farmhouse and its cottages and the feeling of being away from It all - just being able to see fields and trees. The only noise you can hear is that of a woodpecker or the tree frogs in the woods. To see deer roaming free across the gardens always makes me smile.
Whilst feeling rural, it is still within very easy reach of Villereal with all its shops, bars, restaurants and pharmacy and there are 3 geogous bakeries in Villereal and 1 within walking distance to Montaut for that morning croissant I so enjoy.
The woods at the end of the drive and plenty of cycle paths and footpaths around made it attractive to me yet just jump in the car and there are many beautiful places to visit.
Having internet is handy so I am able to communicate with friends and family whilst away for the summer months.
The pool is right opposite the cottages and farmhouse so its easy to nip out whenever you feel like it to have a dip or, to relax on one of the floating armchairs in the pool.
There is a good library of dvd's and books so if you just want to stay in one night, cuddle up and watch a good movie its easy to do so.
There are games and puzzles in each gite which are fun to play with friends and family.
If you fancy a bit of sport, there is table tennis and basketball on site too.
10 minutes up the road you can visit the manmade beach and crystal clear lake which all ages of children and adults alike can enjoy including the hire of pedeloes.
