L'Abyme had the perfect accommodation for our family requirements. We had some difficulty finding the property but we had chosen a rural location and we loved the quietness, the abundant wildlife, especially the birds, and the wonderful stars at night! The property was very clean and well equipped and we especially appreciated the comfortable beds and soft English pillows! The pool was in a lovely position and was very well maintained although the shallow end was a bit too deep for my three and a half year old grandson to stand in. The whole family had bought bikes thinking we could cycle easily from the house but the roads were too stony and rough for the safety of the children. However, they greatly enjoyed the cycling along along the river path at Perigueux. Sadly, our stay was marred on the first day by the sudden serious illness of a son-in-law who had to be helicoptered from Perigueux to hospital in Bordeaux, where he received excellent care and is making a recovery. The owners could not have been more kind, understanding and supportive and we cannot speak highly enough about them. Unfortunately, because of our traumatic circumstances we did not get out and about very much but, despite this, we all felt we had had a lovely time at the beautiful L'Abyme.
