Finding the villa was not easy but this was mainly down to the homeaway directions. Once we had spoken to the owner we easily found it. The villa was spotless, gardens beautiful and pool inviting. We had everything we needed to enjoy our stay and that's exactly what we did! This villa is perfect if you want some space and peace and quiet but also be close enough to find somewhere for dinner and access all the numerous beautiful sights around the area. Would we go back? Yes definitely - we had a wonderful time. Do note that homeaway say this has 1 bathroom - it actually has 1 bath/shower room and 2 good sized shower rooms.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      This is a comfortable property that can readily accommodate 4 or 5 people, it might be a bit tight for more. The House has pretty much everything you need from Washing Machine to Dishwasher to Sky to Picnic Baskets and Weber BBQ! The property is truly rustic, not a luxury villa but a real taste of rural French living. Its probably due for a bit of TLC regarding decor and the Garden and I'm not sure the cleaning / garden staff are pulling their weight at changeover but beyond that it was all very good. The views however are fantastic and you can watch the Dordogne Valley change through the day, the terrace is a great place to dine, although the table only seats 4! The pool is an immense asset and is a winning feature of the property, being a sensible size and with good paved areas for lounging. It gets sun all day from 9am through til 6pm and is a genuine sheltered sun trap. The loungers are probably in need of replacement as are the parasols, all had some damage, unfortunately the pool cleaning chap didn't clean the pool once in two weeks, so we ended up doing it ourselves, thankfully we know how to do it from ownership experience but many wouldn't. Access is challenging, if you don't like driving this one possibly isn't for you. The road is very narrow and very steep but it is manageable. We have an X5 and it just (10mm clearance) goes between the neighbouring cottage & the house. We did it every day with no problem but again its not for anyone who isn't confident behind the wheel, however in a smaller car then I am sure its much less challenging. You can park at the top of the Hill and walk down 80m to the Cottage which course negates this problem! The location is fantastic though, wth good amenities in St Cyprien and the surrounding areas. Quite challenging climbs back to the House on bikes but its a good workout. Lots of amazing places to visit and activities so a great place to be based for 2 weeks. We had a wonderful stay, thoroughly enjoyed it. Despite the few very minor criticisms we would go back, especially if the small concerns are tackled for 2017. The pictures on the web site don't do the House or the views justice - it really is in an amazing location and I would recommend this to anyone subject to the comments above.

The property was clean and well maintained, kitchen equipment was all provided, with a good barbecue on the terrace. Our kids loved the pool, which was clean and well maintained with a comfortable lounging area and lovely gardens surrounding it. Saint Cyprien has a large supermarket, restaurants, and a weekly market (twice weekly in summer). The gite is very well located for visiting all tourist attractions around the area by car. With beautiful walks nearby and canoe rental just across the river, this property is perfect for a relaxing getaway. I would definitely recommend this lovely gite.
