The owners have thoughtfully gone to a lot of trouble to leave a very comprehensive book with a full list of things to do in the area of which there are many. Many historical chateaux's, canoeing, walking, many local towns, incredible restaurants, etc. They have also provided "at home" activities for all the family - games, videos, books etc not to mention the most beautiful pool. This is truly spectacular place to stay. The lay out provides a single level house with two bedrooms - ideal for grandparents or even the teenagers, and a two story house for the family. Perfect for a multi generation family or two families. could not recommend it highly enough - plus, and this is a big plus in my experience of renting holiday accommodation - the owners responded to all of my questions about the property and location - they speak English and French. PERFECT!

Well appointed studio apartment on bottom floor of converted chateau worker's cottage. When we were there we had the place to ourselves as the upstairs cottage was not occupied at the time. Sheila and Kevin made us so welcome and we particuarly appreciated the lovely welcome pack of baguette, juice, milk, cheese, butter and wine. The pool (which was well kept and clean) was used most days as we had such wonderful weather. Ideally situated for discovering the wonders of the Dordogne with a supermarket 5 minutes walk and the lovely village of Hautefort with its chateau about 20 minutes walk. Would definitely recommend this as a lovely place to stay in the Dordogne.

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.
