We visited in mid August 2018 as a group of 4 families: 8 adults and 6 children (the latter between 3 and 9 years old). Firstly, I would concur with previous reviewers that both of the properties provide first-class, comfortable accommodation. The renovations have clearly been carried out with style and sensitivity. The availability of en-suite facilities in many of the bedrooms is a particularly desirable feature when mixed families are resident.
We noticed that the WiFi signal was variable throughout the properties and non-existent in parts of the main house, and that the DVD player was broken.
The pool and barbecue area provides a focal point for cooking, dining and relaxing and we spent much of our days together in this area. It was a pleasant surprise to find both a fridge and a dishwasher adjacent to the BBQ. The pool, itself, is safe, clean and well maintained by Paul. The grounds around the properties are quite extensive and provided much opportunity for the little ones to indulge in "famous five" fantasies: from rabbit hunting and mud-pie building to, even, a mini triathlon.
Les Cabanes has a very rural feel, but the local area provides many opportunities for interesting and exciting days out. The five cyclists amongst us indulged ourselves with many outings up and down the Dordogne valley. As we had lots of little ones to entertain we found the proximity of the "veloroute" (cycle track along an old railway line) a great bonus. Other memorable local excursions included: canoeing trips on the Dordogne (talk to Jane about how to claim a discount!), the Sarlat Monkey Forest and the Waterpark.
