Hosts Phil and Maria were so helpful and friendly, full of local tips and advice. The accommodation is spacious and well equipped. The pool is superb and there is plenty of garden space for the children to let off steam. It's a beautiful area to explore with lots of lovely local towns. Brantome was our favourite. The Boulangerie/patisserie in Cherval is not to be missed. We want to go back now!!!!

Would particularly recommend swimming at the lake at Videix, but also enjoyed walking in the countryside around La Besse, playing some very competitive table tennis and having long leisurely meals on the terrace.We plan to come again next year!
