It was very clean, spacious and had all the facilities one could require. The garden surrounding the house was pretty and well tended and suitably enclosed to allow our dog to roam without worry but there was easy access to more garden/fields adjacent. The location was excellent with many tracks through the woods and fields right on the doorstep which gave an air of freedom. Although we only met Nadege on our arrival day, she had been very helpful prior to our visit and her mother who lives close by and oversees the property was also most welcoming and friendly and a pleasure to deal with. Unfortunately we did not have the best of weather during our stay but it did not spoil our impression of the Dordogne region largely thanks to the lovely house and friendly people we met.

The quality of the building fabric and decoration is outstanding with all the equipment you could wish for. It was like being allowed to use a much loved and cared for home. The owners live locally and met us on arrival and were charming and very helpful.We found it easy to drive up to to unload but some might find the 2M wide road a challenge! That said there is plenty of free parking within 150m .The views are a treat and it was wonderful to see the countryside in different guises each day. It sits within the charming town and therefore it is easy to walk around without traffic problems. Gourdon is a very pleasant town , with plenty of resturants and shops but not overburdened with tourists, no Sarlat here! It's very easy to get around the area with plenty to see and do. There is a train station which will wisk you away to Toulouse ,Brieve, Cahors etc or even bring you in to holiday without a car. It was so enjoyable that we are going to try and visit again.
