Beautiful well-appointed home in a gorgeous setting

5 of 5
We were welcomed to our holiday home by Edmund and Averil who answered our questions with ease. Every time we asked for help (walks, Vegan restaurants, nearest supermarkets etc) they were able to answer very quickly and knowledgeably. The pool is a nice size for cooling off in and the many places for dining, on the shady veranda or the other options in the wooded garden. The kitchen is fully equipped including SHARP knives (a first in a rental property for us!). The kitchen facilities were first class and important to us and as we spent a lot of time eating there. The garden is beautiful with some lovely planting and plentiful visitors in the form of bees and lovely hummingbird hawk-moths. The bedrooms and bathrooms are well appointed and comfortable. We were pleased with the large Smart TV, FreeSat and DVD player, so we were able to watch BBC coverage of Wimbledon and Netflix for films. There is a good selection of DVDs too! All in all we had a wonderful holiday and this was assisted greatly by the friendly help from Edmund and Averil. All 6 of us had a holiday to remember. Thank you!

Beautiful property

4 of 5
The property is beautiful, in a historic and beuatiful village and close to some of the most stunning areas of the Perigord. There were a few minor niggles - the property was lacking some basic equipment that you would expect (for example, a barbecue was provided, but no barbecue tools... (But there are now, we bought some and left them at the property!) And no egg cups! Also, the bed was slightly inaccesible for somebody with a back disabilty (me!) and the access via the upper stairs to the sleeping area is restricted. Parking was also difficult at times because the village is very popular. Nevertheless, a lovely place.
