Whilst in a hamlet, there is a village nearby with what looked like a lovely restaurant. Sadly, we hadn't booked in advance and it was full, so I would suggest you call before you go if you want to try it (particularly in August). Bergerac itself is only 15 mins away. The house is well equipped and the kitchen is particularly impressive. There is a fabulous balcony overlooking the pool: a great place to sit and do very little. Scott, who manages the house, is very helpful and quick to respond on email and Florence (the housekeeper/cleaner) was able to pop in to help us find pool towels, and Sebastian came round to clean the pool and tidy the garden. The only slight downside - for the kids more than us - was the wifi, which was slow and pretty much confined to the room where the router was. It didn't matter when the sun was shining as they were in the pool, but we had a couple of cooler days, when they were inside a bit more and wanting to use devices. For us, it was great to have an excuse to be offline! I would definitely recommend a stay here. It was a very relaxing week.

If you want rest and relaxation then this is the place for you, set in miles of secluded countryside The Gites are first class with everything you need to make your stay very comfortable. The swimming pool is an excellent size and very well maintained. Our hosts Mandy and David are very welcoming always available to help yet non intrusive. Always enjoy reading Dave's T-shirts. There is much to see and do in the surrounding area from canoeing the rivers to visiting many stunning villages and chateaux. Already looking forward to our next visit.
