The proprietors were very helpful and friendly. Not clear in the publicity that we had to pay for the use of linen which was advertised as "provided" but apart from that all was well. There are lots of things to do in the area and we strongly recommend the village butcher if barbecuing!

Perigord is a wonderful place to visit, of course, and the cottage was ideally placed to enjoy it without having to drive too far. Linda and George were marvellous hosts, and nothing was too much trouble....when I unpacked my case after the holiday, it was full of Linda's hand written direction sheets! Thank you both for making such a huge effort to assure we enjoyed our stay! Thanks too to Dimitri for cooking us a wonderful meal in the cottage one evening...it was memorable!
