It was perfect in all respects: facilities, cleanliness, location and friendliness. Everything was provided and the owners were very helpful yet discreet. The grounds were considerable and would be a delight to children. It was so quiet and peaceful, yet the village was only a mile away and easily walkable. The scenic towns and villages of the Lot and Dordogne were all within easy driving distance. We will undoubtedly return and I cannot recommend this villa and its delightful owners enough.

Simon was a knowledgeable host and gave us lots of pointers and advice. There is fantastic cycling in the area. We also welcomed his morning delivery of croissants and baguettes! The accommodation is great - very warm and friendly. The views are awesome. We also loved the hot hub. Highly recommended!

The town itself is a gem - honey coloured winding streets, ancient houses. The property itself is small, and stylish with virtually everything you might need. Accomodation is arranged over 3 floors, and has a lovely shady private outdoor space. You can walk to a lovely swimming lake from the door in 20 minutes, and the countryside and little villages are just gorgeous. The week we stayed temperatures were in the 30's, which did make the bedrooms (under the roof) very hot.
