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.

The farmhouse is very creaky and wonky inside, but was very clean, and gardens were well looked after and so pleasant that we were happy to remain there, only driving out to Hautefort on one overcast morning and to St Yrieix for some shopping. Hosts Mark & Maggie were tickled to see four OAPs cavorting around the table tennis table or rolling boules up and down the lawn, or perhaps hear the mirth from the table in the shade of the orchard . Mark & Maggie do seem to enjoy helping their guests to get the most from their holiday, while keeping a low profile. Hoping to return, Alan, Molly, Roy and Anne.
