Guestbook comments from the owner

Over twenty years we have stayed in numerous properties, all over France. This one was by far the best! We stayed in this property with our two teenagers and my parents. It was absolutely superb! The rooms were spacious, well decorated and extremely well kept. The kitchen was perfect and had everything you could need. There are also large grounds on the property which were ideal for a kick about and racket sports. What made this holiday extra special was the fantastic welcome given by Don and Jackie who oversee the running of the property (they also built it!!). We were made to feel very welcome and given lots of excellent advice on places to visit. The pool was ideal for a dip when it got too hot. This was private and for our sole use.

The actual area itself is spectacular. We would advise anyone staying with teenagers to take a trip, or two, down the Dordogne, canoeoing and kayaking. There are also many high wire/tree trails for them to enjoy. Not to mention, the many Bastides and wine making venues for the rest of us! Overall a fabulous holiday made more perfect by the wonderful, helpful hosts. We would all definitely recommend a visit to this holiday rental home.
