Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Keith, Our stay at your cottage this August was amazing. We enjoyed the peace and tranquillity of the surroundings and your house was well appointed for visiting local towns and markets. It was lovely to relax around the pool and eating outdoors was perfect at the lovely large table. We enjoyed walking in the local vicinity and felt very safe both in your house and while we were out and about. The balcony outside the one bedroom was idyllic. I will be recommending your property to anyone who is interested in staying in France. Many thanks
Dear Keith Just to let you now that the security cheque you kindly returned has now arrived. I also wanted to thank you for the loan of your house, we all had an amazing time. The weather was outstanding, the property, pool and field just perfect and the area was exactly what we were looking for. We achieved all our goals of canoeing, cycling, and most importantly relaxing!
Kerry J, Lynchet Minster, Dorset, 2012Hi Keith Normal life isn't all that it is cracked up to be - we much prefer the french holiday lifestyle. We would just like to say how much we all enjoyed staying at your home. Everything we wanted was there. Perfect location for countryside and sunflowers with a mere 10 minute trip to al the local shops of Lavardac, Barbesta and Nerac. The Friday night food market at le Frechou was just idyllic and put me in food heaven. Your home is lovely, the pool is fresh and the wisteria covered outside eating and chilling veranda is just perfect. We are keen to come back next year!
