Quaint and querkey main house is beautifully decorated and clean with a lovely sociable covered outside dinning/seating area. We sat outside every evening with a uninterrupted view of the night sky with a glass or two of wine with no noise whatsoever. The pool garden and facilities on site are excellent for the smaller ones and in our case dogs. With plenty of games onsite. In the mornings I jumped on my bike for the 3km commute to the local bakers for fresh bread in Hautefort. The locals were very friendly and accommodating with my minimal French. A little further down the lane is an intermarche supermarket where there is everything you could possibly need. We had a couple of excursions during our stay there is a local lake 10mins north of the property with a beach and water skiing. 50mins south the dordogne river was our favourite with a family canoeing/kayak day. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting the region. Patrice and her team will be more than happy to help. Thank you.

The stresses of life slipped away as soon as we arrived. As a location, it is perfectly situated for some of the beautiful local villages like Segur-le-Chateau (the market on a Monday night is a must-see) and Jumhilac le Grand, but also for the longer trips to beautiful old towns like Sarlat, Montignac and Brantome. As hosts, Mark and Alison had that perfect balance of being welcoming but not intrusive. The cottage faces away from their barn so we never felt like we were being watched, but they were always helpful and friendly whenever we came across them. I would definitely recommend and I would definitely return.
