Enjoyed now by three generations of the family. A lovely place to get away from it all and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the country.

Rustic rural charm!

  • 3 of 5

Very quiet spot to relax and unwind. Close to quite a few things to do and see and not too far from the larger supermarkets though there is a good small one about a mile away. We loved the markets on Friday and Saturday and we loved the karting as well as the château ruins.

Lovely location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful, restful week here, the outside space is amazing and this is where we spent most of our time. The pool, although small, is more than adequate to cool off on a hotter day. It's equipped with BBQ and a big range cooker. The fridge however, is very small for the occupancy, we we four and one child and this was a struggle, also not particularly cold on maximum setting. Overall, very happy...

Beautiful French farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at St. Georges. The house and the outdoor spaces are beautiful, comfortable and quiet. Brantome is a lovely town nearby that you will thoroughly enjoy. We had cool-ish weather so weren't inclined to swim in the pool, but we liked sitting near it, in the sun. The house was a bit of a challenge to find, but only the first time.

Quaint, quiet, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

St Georges is at the end of a long yet very quiet single track road & is accordingly in a very peaceful setting. The house itself is lovely & well described in the advert. It was clean & tidy on arrival & easy to keep that way. The 3rd bedroom isn't for the tallest of folk, but then again you do sleep lying down.

The general location suited me well, with plenty of places worth visiting within easy driving distance. The local village, St Pierre de Cole, has a bakers & a decent wee supermarket, but you need to go to Brantome (which you will anyway, again & again) for meat. The nearest restaurant's in St Pierre & is a must in terms of both food & value. The Grotte de Villars is also close & an absolute must - just stunning!

I would both recommend St Georges & go back myself.
