Le Bonheur is very well equipped with everything you need and more. it's peaceful location is perfect with a village boulangerie nearby and a short drive to the nearest town and supermarket. We loved relaxing in the garden and by the pool and found plenty to do within an hour's drive. There are beautiful towns and villages to visit, canoeing on the rivers and we would recommend a trip to the high ropes centre. We had such a great holiday and would highly recommend this fantastic property.

The property is very comfortable and is exceptionally well equipped. The unseasonably cold and wet September weather meant that we did not sample the new swimming pool, but it is clearly a very elegant and attractive addition to the property. Its rural location means that it is exceptionally quiet and (weather permitting) allows spectacular views of the night sky, unspoiled by light pollution. The owners live immediately adjacent to the property and are available to help with any problems, but they at no time intruded on our privacy. The local area has a number of attractive Bastide towns that are well worth a visit, and there are several other tourist attractions for the visitor. The city of Villeneuve-sur Lot is less appealing, though there is a good selection of shops and the E Leclerc hypermarket on the outskirts of the city is an easy drive away and provides for all one’s needs. We can thoroughly recommend Teyssie to any potential visitors, and we extend our sincere thanks once more to Hilary and Gary for their efforts to give us a really enjoyable holiday.
