The tiny medieval village of Issigeac is charming, welcoming and friendly. The village market day is so much fun, so make sure not to miss out! The beautiful vistas and countryside, medieval and bastide villages and of course the multitude of chateaux and family run wineries, make day drives along winding country roads, unforgettable.This is the perfect base from which to explore the Dordogne and Vezere river valleys, St Emilion, Roman ruins and so many unforgettable places, I could go on forever. Also the prehistoric dwelling caves at Lascaux, Font de Gaume and Rouffignac will forever be with me. In summary Maison de la Paix (a play on the owners surname) is a historic, luxurious, spotlessly clean but homely base in a delightful village, with a history dating back to the 5th century. Thank you John & Louise and of course the delightful caretaker Brenda, for making this special place available to us. Can't wait to return next year!

We were warmly greeted by Jean- Louis and his wife, who took the trouble to talk us through the do's and don'ts of the property and then left us discreetly to ourselves; they also provided us with a lovely welcome basket of wines, etc. The pool is fantastic and when our daughter and son in law joined us for the second week, he was in it at every opportunity; brilliant idea having the cover set up so you could have it out in the open when the sun shone or covered if it rained or was cool. The wildlife is amazing, roe deer, red squirrels, every kind of tit imaginable, jays and so much more - the tits and squirrels are of course encouraged by the food put out for them. Do eat at Jean-Louis favourite Restuarant Le Grappe D'or - fantastic Sunday lunch.
