Les Hirondelles is a real find! After a day there, you can feel all your stress has disappeared. The house is really lovely and the gardens are filled with greenery, roses, blossom and fruit. In the middle of all this, the spectacular pool is secluded and all yours. We spent nights alongside it, on sun loungers watching shooting stars falling. It’s deep in the lovely countryside, so there is no background light and you can clearly see all the stars in the Milky Way. There’s wildlife (we spotted a fox, deer and owls amongst the woodland across from the house, and swallows over the pool in the evening) and the birdcalls are amazing. There is plenty of room in the house, it’s totally clean, nicely decorated, with gorgeous traditional features like tiled and parquet floors, the kitchen is very well equipped and the beds are literally the most comfortable we have ever slept in. We would like to live here if we could! But we’ll definitely come back as often as we can. It's a real bargain at this cost, compared to other more expensive places we have stayed. Completely brilliant for kids, dogs and great for relaxing.
The property had everything that we were looking for. Booking was very easy and the owners were more than helpful to ensure our time spent there went without any glitches. The house has everything that is stated in the listing, great heating (winter holiday), fantastic WiFi and great television systems for those relaxing evenings in front of a (huge) open fire. Ideally situated and close enough to local villages and towns. The property is set in an amazing elevated location with wonderful views of vineyards and the local surrounding countryside. My wife and I spent a whole month over the Christmas festive season at the property, so unfortunately didn't get the opportunity to experience the wonderful private swimming pool due to the winter climate. Although, I imagine it would be fantastic in the summer months. If you are looking to stay in a traditional French property with open wooden beams and superb surroundings then I would highly recommend this property to anyone. The historic town of Duras is roughly 7km away (as the crows fly) and here you can find everything you require such as; Bars, shops and restaurants. Bergerac is roughly 1 hours drive from the property, which has great shops and restaurants - a visit is highly recommended. In short, a wonderful month spent in a fantastic house with great surroundings. We would most certainly rent this property again in the future. Shirley and Bill we thank you. Steve and Jenny x
