The house is beautifully furnished and fitting with the style of the house. Well equipped kitchen and as one other reviewer commented really good to have some essentials provided. The beds and linen are far superior than previous rentals we have experienced. Also plus to have all the pool towels. Lovely gardens and nice heated saltwater pool. Area was good with short trip to Castillon and Gensac. Restaurants in the area good and great to get the tips in the house book. Tom also very helpful throughout the visit. Availed of canoeing a few times which is close by in Pessac Sur Dordogne. We are seasoned visitors in France and would highly recommend this property. Thanks Craig and Sylvia

We stayed in the Hazelnut cottage which was absolutely perfect. The gardens and the pool area gave the children the freedom to roam around and play safely. The hosts, Lulu and Caspian were superb, often around to offer advice and a friendly chat without being too conspicuous. The area is rural and peaceful with a couple of bars and restaurants only a few minutes drive away. A car is a must to enable you to visit some of the beautiful towns in the area. We would certainly consider another stay here, we felt so comfortable it was a drag to come home. Thank you Lulu and Caspian.
