The Gite is quite new and although attached to the main house, there is plenty of privacy but the Owner is close by and very helpful if you ask her for advice or recommendations. The surrounding area is typical of the Dordogne with picturesque rural villages within easy reach by car. We had a most enjoyable stay and certainly hope to return at some stage in the future.

Perigord is a wonderful place to visit, of course, and the cottage was ideally placed to enjoy it without having to drive too far. Linda and George were marvellous hosts, and nothing was too much trouble....when I unpacked my case after the holiday, it was full of Linda's hand written direction sheets! Thank you both for making such a huge effort to assure we enjoyed our stay! Thanks too to Dimitri for cooking us a wonderful meal in the cottage one evening...it was memorable!
