Travel to Champagne et Fontaine, France

The property was OK, all "modern" facilities were available in a charming setting. The Dordogne is still one of the most beautifull area's in France: the little picturesque villages, the nice wheater, the good food, ... What really made this stay special : the fantastic view !!!

Outside there's a fantastic space which is quiet and secluded and a lovely spot to enjoy both days and evenings. Aubeterre-sur-Dronne is within 5 min drive and the main attraction of a stay in this area. There are 4 lovely walks of up to 8km within easy reach - you can walk to Aubeterre as well! A stay here is really all about peace and quiet in a lovely part of France.
