Delightful Rural Gite

5 of 5
The property was most attractive with very much a "french" feel, both comfortable and relaxing. We particularly enjoyed the delightful pool especially as the fortnight was very hot and sunny. It was peaceful and quiet. Jill, the owner was most accommodating in ensuring we had an excellent holiday by providing a welcome pack of food stuffs and ongoing contributions including eggs, and produce. Jill was always helpful with information when asked. The property is in a rural location and we enjoyed walks in the vicinity. We were able to explore the bastide towns (Eymet, Duras, Issigeac) , areas along the Dordogne river, and some of the wonderful chateux and wine producing properties in the area. We found some excellent restaurants and enjoyed the wonderful markets for top class fruit and foodstuffs. Bergerac itself we visited several times, enjoying exploring the old town, wine museum , river area and various cafes to stop and savour the atmosphere. All in all you could not ask for more.
