Holiday Aug 23rd - 6th Sept 2008
Review Submitted: 10 September 2008
Date of Stay: August 2008
The six of us (grandparents, hubbie, myself & 2 boys under 5) had a great 2 weeks staying at Alan & Sandra's farmhouse. The area is lovely, very picturesque & very peaceful which makes a real difference for us suburban types. Lovely walks from the farmhouse across to Thenac allow you to get up close to the vines & sunflowers in the fields as opposed to just driving past! 1st week the weather was glorious so spent a lot of time in & out the pool, playing golf, picking abundant blackberries & figs in Alan's fields, canoeing & going for walks. 2nd week was not quite so nice so did more visiting, worth a mention are: St Emilion, Bergerac, Issigeac, Monpazier, Belves & Beynac. We also made our way through voluminous quantities of local wines & cheese so we were thoroughly happy! The farmhouse is rustic and a lot of effort has gone into keeping the original features and that's the real charm of the place, we were extremely comfortable. Alan & Sandra are a lovely couple who really go out of their way to help you get the best out of your holiday. We would definitely recommend to friends & may well return another year ourselves.
