The facilities were excellent, and the property had been very well converted into accommodation. It is next to the owners property, but completely separate and peaceful. The views are lovely and we particularly enjoyed taking our morning coffee and evening glass of wine sitting out on the patio. Ruth and Adrian are charming hosts and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area. They were always on hand if we needed them but we had complete privacy. A very nice touch was the already burning log burner when we arrived after our long drive. It was a lovely touch and added to the cosy-feel of the cottage. There are so many places to visit in the surrounding area that we would need many more life times in order to do them all! However, Adrian and Ruth had compiled a very helpful 'Top Ten' list! We had wonderful sunny weather, which always makes a difference, but we had excellent days out at 'Beynac' and the lake at Jermay. This is certainly an area we will be coming back to and unreservedly recommend Ruth and Adrian's gite as a base for your exploration of this beautiful corner of France.

There was pretty much everything you needed to ensure a great break and the hosts were always on hand if you needed them without being intrusive. We were lucky enough to have other families staying in the other properties which made the evenings that more enjoyable and there is plenty going off both locally (markets etc.) and further afield,making it something for everyone. Would definitely recommend it to others and will hopefully be returning next summer.
