Tranquility at its Best!

4 of 5
A lovely house in the quietest of locations. Probably saw three cars in the week that we stayed. Beautiful surrounding villages. Lots to see and do. Nothing was too much trouble for Philippe who was very keen to make sure we were happy with the house and facilities. A whole list of games/sports equipment is itemised on HomeAway website but be sure to request them before you arrive if you wish them to be at the house. We were expecting a table tennis table which was absent on our arrival. However, we spoke to Philippe and he had it delivered the next day. Car is essential as well as a Sat Nav. Be sure to check out the Hotel Restaurant Chastrusse in Nadaillac de Rouge, the nearest village. Lovely courtyard area for eating fabulous food. I would also recommend Le Roi Carotte in Saint Julien de Lampon. A small traditional restaurant offering 4 courses for €20. Again, great food, good sized portions. Thank you Philippe for buying such a charming house in a beautiful part of the world and then sharing it with others.

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.
