We were looked after amazingly by the whole family - very thoughtful. Overall we felt privileged to be able to stay here - when we booked we had not realised the significance of this village and just where it was situated. Beautiful and so amazing in its history. The house it's self was finished off perfectly and very quaint - set on 3 floors it is simply but tastefully furnished and very comfortable. You have everything you need and the quality of the renovation is excellent. as meantioned in other reviews if you have restricted mobility you would possibly struggle with layout but also you would need to be mindful staying in this village as you do have hills and slopes to walk as cars cannot get to all areas. However if you are looking for some history, some peace ( you do get use to the church bell every hour! 😊) and some great hospitality then choose here because we loved it and as I said felt privileged to be based in such a special village with stunning views and at the foot of a impressive castle. And with delightful hosts. Fantastic....

We were met with a friendly and warm welcome from Linda and George. We traveled with parents and teenage children. The villa was very clean, spacious and perfect for our stay.The little extras Linda provides are so thoughtful, fresh eggs, milk, coffee, orange juice, wines, toiletries, and even bathrobes for every one. Linda tries to think of everything and goes above and beyond to try and make your stay perfect. The pool was a perfect way to cool off and relax after a day out sightseeing, and the views are so relaxing and beautiful. Plenty of room inside and out, with two very large patios for everyone to relax, plus a beautiful garden with lots of swings and benches to relax and read a good book. We could not have asked for a better centrally located place to enjoy the Dordogne, everything is literally minutes away. Looking forward to hopefully returning for a longer stay!
