The owners who live next door could not have been more welcoming and knowledgable about the local area. We had a splendid time visiting a different market every day and the Chateaux at Duras and Montbazillac. We would highly recommend a stay at Les Niches! Flew on Flybe from Southampton to Bergerac which I would highly recommend too.
