Our hosts were lovely - really helpful, welcoming and good company and yet allowed us privacy to enjoy their lovely property and grounds. Beautiful countryside as you'd expect in the Dordogne. Highlights included canoeing down the Dordogne river, sight-seeing to Domme, Cahors and Rocamadour. An excellent holiday all round made especially so by the lovely Edmund and Averil. Thank you for a lovely stay.

There is a splendid view over open fields, woods and hills - just right for evening meals on the patio with the sun going down over the hills. Just the sound of the birds - no cars or road noise. All that you need can be found in Labastide Murat about 10 minutes away. Ria was very welcoming, helpful and discrete.
