Far bigger than the pictures portray, well equipped and spotlessly clean - what more could you want? Less than an hour's drive from the picturesque Aubeterre, Bergerac, Périgueux and Brantôme, the gîte was a perfect base from which to explore the region in the day and then return for an evening in the French sunshine on the terrace. Hosts, Phil and Maria, were very welcoming and always seemed more than happy to share their tips on how to make the most out of our stay - thank you again! We would definitely recommend for anyone wanting a relaxing break away. With regards to finding the gîte in the quiet hamlet of Villars, we found when entering Gout-Rossignol as the town and 'Villard' as the street, our TomTom took us straight there. Just a tip in case other's satnavs work the same!
