Stunning house, very spacious, immaculately decorated with everything you could ever need available. Outside terrace is right next to the stream. Very peaceful, a particular favourite sitting area for my husband. Pool is great for kids and Karen and Rob are very welcoming and always made themselves available for any requests or needs. Will definitely be back. Oustanding location and a perfect holiday.

Walked into Sarlat most days to visit market, old town and enjoy meals out. The surrounding area is fascinating, over the week we visited cave painting sites, hill top towns and enjoyed riverside picnics. A lovely week and a very warm welcome from Linda and her husband, our hosts. Easy parking and a very comfortable flat to return to each day was just what we wanted. Would love to return and explore more. Thank you Linda - a lovely holiday

                                                                                                5 of 5
                                                                                                It's hard to know what to say that hasn't already been said by others. I agree with everything that has been said about Karen & Rob being wonderful laid back but helpful hosts who care about their guests' enjoyment of their holiday. Le Tournesol was the perfect size for us and our 2 boys, 10 and 12, and being on the ground floor and in the shade, kept nice and cool, and the courtyard sitting area was lovely and private. If we wanted sun we simply had to walk round the other side of the building by the river where we had deckchairs and a small table at our disposal (this became my perfect little quiet spot each day to catch the last of the evening sun and read a book, wine in hand, or watch the dragon flies and butterflies on the riverbank.) Or of course we could go to the pool which had plenty of sun loungers (no having to put your towels down to save one!) and was planted around the edges with beautiful lavender which apart from giving the air a wonderful smell did a fab job of keeping any bees occupied and away from sunbathers! The grounds are beautiful, just perfect, I loved being so close to the little river, it was so relaxing! The games room kept our boys occupied too and was really well equipped - we had brought a cricket set and a travel box of Cluedo with us for example, but they were already there in the games room. Darts, pool, table tennis, giant connect 4, jenga, boules, croquet, badminton, many box games - they were all available, as were many DVDs. The location is perfect- despite being on the road to Les Eyzies, we weren't disturbed by traffic noise, and we found it more convenient than being at the end of a long bumpy track full of potholes in the middle of nowhere (something which we've experienced in the past in rural holiday cottages!). A small supermarket/petrol station is a couple of mins drive away, and it it's possible to walk into Les Eyzies if you want to have a drink and leave the car behind. Restaurants are very nice with lovely staff and reasonable prices. Very central to all the many tourist attractions in the region, which we enjoyed: Chateau Castelnaud, aquarium, prehistoric maze, crazy golf, caves of Cazelles, prehistory museum, canoeing. But there is still lots to see so we will be back! I wholeheartedly recommend Le Banquet to everyone, especially those with children. And if you've never been to the Dordogne before like we hadn't, what are you waiting for? Just go - it's absolutely beautiful.
