A car is a necessity as there is no transit in the village, and you will want to tour the nearby villages of Carennac and Rocamadour. Madame Diane is a gracious host.

The house is charming and full of character, and has been renovated to a very high standard. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the fact that each room had an en suite bathroom made things very convenient eg: no queuing for the shower. The house was spacious enough to accommodate 3 generations of our family easily, ( the youngest being 20 months). We all had our own space and the kitchen was well equipped and big enough for several of us to be working in there at the same time. The weather we had was so good that nearly all of our meals were eaten outside on the patio overlooking the pool, and there is also a barbecue that we used one evening. Breakfast was always eaten inside on the large family table. Fresh bread and croissants can be bought from the boulangere in the nearby village of Daglan. The heated pool was constantly in use and was big enough for all, and it was the area for lots of fun and games. The owner Fabienne Saugier is very helpful and replied to all my emails within a day, and the caretakers of the property are friendly and accessible. We didn't need to bother them when we were there as everything was perfect. The house is positioned in a truly beautiful area and there are many places to visit nearby, but the weather was so good and the house so tranquil and comfortable most of our days were spent relaxing around the pool. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this house and my only regret is that we couldn't stay for longer.

This a large cottage with a well appointed kitchen, comfortable bedrooms and two modern bathrooms. The position of the cottage is ideal for exploring this wonderful area which has a lot to offer. The owner Regine is a very welcoming lovely lady. We enjoyed our one week stay very much and would like to revisit some time in the future. We highly recommend this cottage for a perfect stay in the Black Perigord region
