Guestbook comments from the owner

"Absolutely beautiful" Sept 2014

Had a fabulous stay in this charming and well equipped cottage. Montagrier is just stunning and the perfect place to wander and unwind. The cottage has a lovely 'feel' to it and we would recommend it, but not in September as we plan to return then. Charleigh Johnson and family



“Lovely cottage - attractive and interesting area.” Sept 2014

September can be very beautiful in France, and we were lucky this year; stunning weather and a charming house in an area which, though not so well-known, is well worth visiting and exploring; Bergerac, Aubeterre, Brantome and Perigueux all made delightful excursions.



The house is attractive, clean and well-maintained. It has a cosy lounge which is ideal for TV if you want, but we spent most of our time in the huge, comfortable and very French kitchen (with all mod. cons, however) except when drinking wine on the pretty sun terrace. Local restaurant is good and friendly. All in all, a marvellous holiday. Denise A



“Gite in pleasant village with an excellent Auberge” August 2014

The village itself while quiet had a very good auberge which we enjoyed eating and drinking at most days. The surrounding villages were pretty and interesting.

We would be more than happy to book again for future holidays.

Location

From the Owner

We have spent many years enjoying holidays in France, but always seemed to be drawn back to this region with the sunflowers, the fine wine, food and beautiful scenery. The local markets are just a joy to visit. Aubeterre-sur-Dronne and Brantome are just some of the wonderful places to visit.
