As noted before, this is a substantial and classy French villa in the small town of Villefranche de Lonchat. With the back facing south and panoramic views, the terrace and pool get the sun all day long. Pool is great - big, clean and perfect for swimming. All in all this terrace is a great spot for relaxing and eating.
There is a bakery and grocer's a few steps away plus 3 restaurants in the town from simple to fairly elaborate.
Ludovic is the perfect host - great with communications and always ready to help.
We travelled to Douzillac (a family of four) for 10 days vacation in June/July. We were welcomed by very nice french madame and monsieur who also gave us a welcoming set of good Bergerac wine and soda and very good jam.
The House was big enough for us and it had everything we needed. Kids (and adults too!) loved the pool which was very clean and 10 meters long and over two meters deep at the other end. The beds were very comfortable and the view from the upstairs bedroom to french countryside was astonishing. Running water was warm enough when needed. The house had good WIFI and television had basic french channels. The house has a very big yard with a petanque field, apple trees, lawn and even a shelter for the car, which was absolutely necessary in the hot french summer time.
We made road trips everyday to nearby attractions: Beynac, Lascaux, Perigueux,, Bergerac, Monbazillac, Arcachon etc... So it was in perfect spot for us. Everything was within two hours reach.
Douzillac is a small village with no services except one restaurant and the nearby village of Neuvic ( 5 minutes drive away) offers all services you need: a big shopping market, restaurants, pharmacy, doctor etc..
All in all we enjoyed the house a lot and if we come to same region again we would definitely choose this charming house again!
