It is beautifully maintained with every convenience you need for a wonderful holiday. The location is perfect, very peaceful yet only a short drive from all the tourist attractions that Sarlat and the Dordogne has to offer. The pool is wonderful and kept in pristine condition, a super way to relax with a gin and tonic after a hectic day! Jean-Luc and Monica are brilliant hosts, there if you need them but not obtrusive in any way. We had a problem with our car and if it wasn't for Jean-Luc telephonic the garage and sorting things out for us I don't know what we would have done for our French is very limited! We would certainly recommend staying at this property.

Meals on the south facing patio were a wonderful experience with frequent visits from a woodpecker. It is a great base for walking, with numerous well marked routes in easy distance and one right from the door. There are a number of good and well priced restaurants quite close by. We had a great stay and plan to return.
