The property was clean and had everything we needed and the owner provided a warm welcome. A really lovely setting with shops, restaurants and bars within cycling/walking distance or a short drive. Very friendly locals. Excellent base from which to visit local markets, chateaus and attractions or to enjoy some of the fabulous, well signposted cycle/hiking trails. Of course, the swimming pool was the icing on the cake :)

This a large cottage with a well appointed kitchen, comfortable bedrooms and two modern bathrooms. The position of the cottage is ideal for exploring this wonderful area which has a lot to offer. The owner Regine is a very welcoming lovely lady. We enjoyed our one week stay very much and would like to revisit some time in the future. We highly recommend this cottage for a perfect stay in the Black Perigord region

Easy walking distance to a good supermarket. Very welcoming hosts, and the property is surprisingly easy to find. All the amenities you need, in a lovely setting. Garden and pool are excellent. Sun or shade spots available. Plenty to see in the area, and restaurants just a short drive away. ie less than 5 minutes. Chateaus, lakes, caverns to visit, and all easy to get to. No negatives, only positives, and will definitely consider returning. Recommended.
