                                                                                                5 of 5
                                                                                                The property- has plenty of room and is well furnished- the shutters can be closed at night with the windows left open in order to stay cool. The bathroom and kitchen/dining areas are really nice, the living room has comfortable furniture and the bedroom is lovely. Internet access is variable depending on which room you're in, but it's generally good; we found the best place is on the bed where it was good enough to stream a football match. The grounds - are brilliant with lots of space, fruit trees, plants and a massive lawn. The swimming pool is very clean and there's loads of shade under the trees The village is quite small and peaceful but large enough for there to be a really good baker/general store, cafe and a few other shops. The baker is open all day including Sunday- also the nearest supermarket (2.5 km away) is open on Sunday morning. The village also has a beach on the river which is easily walkable and is really beautiful. The wider area - is fabulous with medieval towns like Bergerac and Sarlat an easy drive away The people - most importantly Shirley and Andy are very friendly and easy going. We got a fabulous (alcoholic)welcome and throughout our week they made sure that we had space and privacy whilst being available for us to ask any questions. We were lucky enough to bump into them at the Village's weekly Street food event (tuesday evenings and not to be missed) and learned loads about living in France from them and some of their Neighbours.

Reassuring to have the owners on site ( next door). Great pool and sitting/ lounging area. I can definitely recommend Les Charmes.
