The pictures and other reviews sold it to us and it certainly didn't disappoint. Set in amongst woodland and rolling fields with lush views, we loved the 3 outdoor seating areas and the bench down a path for watching the stunning sunsets from. The cottage is spacious, the kitchen well equipped and the decor tasteful and matching the beauty of the building. We stayed in the summer but with the log burners it would be super cosy in winter too. The hosts (and little dog) were very friendly and made us feel welcome. A tranquil rural setting but lots of places are within driving distance - bring swimming costumes for the nearby lake beach! Can't recommend highly enough, and such good value for money. We will be back!

The cottage although remote was close enough to shops and amenities. Slightly further afield there are a number of chateaux to visit. The cottage was beautifully presented and very comfortable with everything needed for our stay. The pool was a huge hit with the kids who were in it most days, we visited & fed the pigs & hens too! The owners Sam & Mary live only yards away so were on hand to offer help and advice on visits/markets and local wines. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay thank you Sam and Mary! The Bakers 08/16

                                                                                                5 of 5

It is attached to the owner's house but quite private and not overlooked . The terrace at the back looks out on to walnut trees. The owner, Brigitte, is very welcoming and offered us fresh vegetables from the garden. Local facilities are not far away in St Pardoux. The walk along the old railway (Voie Verte) is recommended, also Brantome. The gite itself is very well equipped with everything you need. We would definitely return if in the area again.
