                                                                                                      This is a lovely property which is actually much nicer than in the photographs. The house itself is very large and all the rooms are beautifully furnished. The kitchen is huge, modern and has everything you need to cater for large groups and there is a lovely dining room with table and chairs for 8. The outside area is fantastic. The pool itself was lovely and clean and being heated it was the perfect temperature. There are many sun loungers and two large tables to eat at, both being under cover. The sun parasols may have seen better days, but there was always plenty of shade to sit in so they weren't really needed. The property itself is situated in a very quiet area with only 1 or 2 neighbours which makes it fantastic for viewing the stars in the evening. On Thursday nights in July and August nearby Saint Astier has live music which you can sit and listen to whilst dining outside at one of the restaurants in the Place D'Eglise. We did this (booking recommended as it gets very busy!) and it was a highlight of our holiday. We also enjoyed canoeing on the river ( there are many canoe hire places around) and nearby Brantome is a beautiful town to visit. We found Rowan the owner extremely helpful and he was always very quick to reply to emails. This is a lovely house and I do not hesitate to recommend it.

To be up early as the sun rises above the trees behind the house and watch the shadows race down the valley chased away by the sunlight is something you could never get tired of. In the heat of the day we cooled off in one of the best and deepest pools we have found in a holiday let, and then BBQ outside as the air begins to cool, is just lovely. We ate just about every meal outside and the way the house is positioned with the trees close by there was always somewhere just right to place the table to either escape from the heat of the midday sun or watch twilight fade and the stars come out. There is an artisan bolangerie 5 minutes away by car in Toucane with a real stone oven and a baker who bakes bread and cakes to die for. We had a fabulous 10 days, and we're really sad to leave but hopefully we'll go back again in the not too distant future.
