Thanks Nadine for allowing us to use your wonderful home for our holiday. The house is lovely and really spacious and has a wonderful homely feel. The new shower room downstairs is excellent. The kitchen is extremely well equipped (my only suggestion would be some more mid-sized coffee cups). We loved eating all our meals in the outdoors covered dining area - just perfect as the weather was glorious and hot for our whole 2 week stay. We had several barbeques. Upstairs has sloping rooves, so headspace minimal in places, but my family of 6-feet+ tall adults coped fine in it. The pool is the largest we've had in a holiday let and in a lovely secluded setting and large grounds. You can hear the road but it's not very busy and it didn't bother us at all. Being so far from others meant we didn't feel constrained about making a noise ourselves and we had some fabulous late evenings with music in the garden.
The house is only 2 miles from the river at Cenac. Lovely little town, with excellent small supermarket, and of course boulangerie etc. You can walk up to Domme from Cenac if you don't mind a steep climb, but you can also drive up. There's a place to rent kayaks by the bridge. The location is ideal for visiting so many wonderful sites in the area - from Rocamadour to Lascaux and beyond. The larger, and beautiful, town of Sarlat is only a 15 min drive away. I'd also recommend visiting Jardins de Marquessac on a Thursday evening (July & Aug) - candlelit with live music around the garden.
Such a stunning area - we all wished so much we could stay longer. We will definately be back.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Les Combes de Bougit and would have no hesitation in staying there again. It was extremely comfortable and well equipped and the pool was superb.
Our only criticism would be that the 2 bedrooms on the 2nd floor got extremely hot which made sleeping difficult. An air conditioning unit up there would have made a big difference.
