It was great to have two sitting rooms - one for the teenagers (next to the wi-fi!) and one for grownups. The pool was perfect, as was the whole setting of the house and grounds. It was great to have the bikes to get bread in St Leon, and for general mooching about the countryside. Issigeac is a beautiful village, with delightful shops and market. Monpazier is also well worth a visit, and it is not too far to go to the amazing gardens at Marqueyssac. Thank you Keith and family for our stay in your wonderful house. We had a fabulous holiday and can't wait to return.

The property was even better than promised on the website with comfortable sofas and beds and a well-equipped kitchen. The setting is lovely with deer seen in the garden a couple of times. Although the weather was a little mixed, we swam in the pool when the sun shone through even at the end of September. A car is necessary but traffic is light and it is easy to get around. We loved the Bastide towns of Beaumont and Monpazier, both within 10 minutes drive. It is well worth the drive to the Sunday market at Issigeac which is a beautiful medieval village in its own right. There are also many other beautiful places to visit on the Dordogne a little further away. It goes without saying that the food was excellent and advice from David and Amanda was 'spot on' including the clear instructions for getting there. All in all, an excellent holiday and we would recommend Les Chenes as a base for visiting the Perigord region.
