Well furnished throughout, and kept in very good order and very clean. We hope to return soon! Thank you! Nick and Nina

The accommodation had everything we needed including an extremely well-equipped kitchen, a modern bathroom with an excellent shower, a big comfy bed and places to sit and relax while reading or watching TV. The balcony with its far reaching wonderful views of the beautiful Dordogne countryside is the perfect place to sit at any time of the day, watching the air balloons go by, eating, drinking, watching the sun go down, enjoying the peace and quiet, and just feeling total deep-down relaxation take hold of you. It was a real pleasure for us to meet Vincent and Maria who could not have been more helpful and friendly. On their recommendation we went to the brilliant Sunday market at St Cyprien and as we drove there it seemed every car in the area was heading in that direction. We can definitely recommend the lasagne we bought there! We visited Montpazier, a 13th century bastide town founded by Edward I, we went to Domme and Sarlat and climbed up to the castle at Beynac, and also explored the little church in St Cybranet. The weather and the views were wonderful wherever we went, and on our last day we bought delicious pastries from the patisserie in Castelnaud and walked by the river in the still warm sunshine. A week is not long enough to explore everything this area has to offer, we were extremely sad to leave, and we would definitely like to stay here again. Thank you Vincent and Maria for a wonderful week. Anne and Ken, Yorkshire

Overall everything about the area & the gite made this a very memorable holiday for us & our dog & without any hesitation we highly recommend it. Kay & Stuart , Blairgowrie , Scotland
