The enclosed garden was perfect for our dog. The pool was clean and well maintained and being able to eat out on the terrace was just wonderful. We loved the character of the house. Very rural French and though elements were a bit dated satisfied our needs. Catherinne was a love host and left us to our own devices. We visited Bergerac and Perigeux. Had an exceptional lunch at L'Imperfait and wonderful dinner at Le Tour Des Vents. Be prepared to travel a little as the situation is remote but the benefits of delicious peace and quiet were worth it. We also went kayaking at Mussidan and we did some running. Just a great holiday for all the family. Gran at 85, 12 and 22 year olds and the dog all had the best time.
