Nice stay with my elderly mother and Guy was accommodating, agreeing a slightly later departure time. Shame it was too far to walk to a boulangerie but Soulbarede is a nice peaceful spot and all very clean.
What a find! We can't recommend this gite enough, from the point of view of location, peace and quiet, everything you could need, beautiful refreshing swimming pool, gorgeous weather and great hosts.
The gite is spacious, clean and nicely furnished, with an extremely comfortable big bed and powerful modern shower. Set just outside Issigeac, it's close enough for nipping in to eat or shop, but far enough away to not be bothered by passing traffic, etc. The market on Sunday mornings is renowned and has won awards and it's easy to see why. There are several restaurants in Issigeac, all superb. We had two lovely lunches in L'Atelier and L'Ancienne Gare and two fantastic evening meals - L'Atelier again and La Brucelière. We also enjoyed a snack lunch at the galleterie one day when we didn't want a full meal.
Around the area you have a number of picturesque Bastide villages and towns (Villeréal, Castillonès, Montpazier, Montbazillac, Beaumont-en-Perigourd), and if you're prepared to travel further afield then Beymac and Sarlat are wonderful.
We also visited some vineyards in the region, and St Emilion was absolutely stunning. We went to Cahors, but the best place to sample the wines is in the vignobles outside the city, although if you do go to Cahors make sure you take some photos of the famous mediaeval bridge.
We will definitely be back to see Gerard, Christine and Zoe again in the future, and our dog was made very welcome by Zoe. It was lovely to have her greet us back from a day trip out, always with her favourite ball in her mouth. Thank you both very much for everything ... And, yes, we did manage to get the puzzle finished before we left!
