Planning our next stay...will be our fourth...

5 of 5
We've stayed twice in the one-room apartment downstairs and once in the house upstairs. Both are wonderful. The apartment has a fabulous terrace with beautiful old moss-covered wisteria topping the walls. The kitchen is a tiny bit awkward (the sink is in a corner) but leads directly onto the lovely terrace. We like the one-room setup with a large bedroom-dining-lounge and a separate kitchen and separate (beautiful) bathroom. Montfort is gorgeous and fabulously located. There is a lovely walk (map & instructions available in Sarlat tourist office) from Vitrac to Montfort and back (we started in Montfort...). There's a good restaurant in Montfort and another a 15min walk / 5 min drive down the road, and the Art cafe in Vitrac does great crepes and has a wonderful terrace. There's also a boulangerie in Montfort - and they now have coffee and a laid back spot to sit & drink it. There are a huge range of gorgeous places to visit and things to do within a half hour drive. Emmanuel has always been really welcoming and helpful and a delight to deal with.

Wonderful holiday in the Dordogne in a lovely property

5 of 5
We were delighted to revisit the Dordogne area again and had a wonderful holiday. The property was beautifully maintained, both inside and out, with a lovely spacious garden and excellent heated pool. The facilities inside provided everything we needed and was to a high standard. We had good contact with the owner who answered any queries we had immediately and concisely. The property is set in an ideal position in which to visit the surrounding areas and there was plenty for us to see. We would definitely recommend this property and would like to return again in the future.
