Fabulous house! Fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped house in Vitrac, situated approx ten minutes drive from Sarlat, Domme and La Rocque- Gageauc. Banyan and castlenaud castles, and the gardens of Marqueyssac all worth a visit. Monpazier is approx 1 hour away but enroute to Bergerac airport.

Very modern bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen dining area. Plenty of towels (including pool towels) and comfortable sun loungers. We even used the pool at the end of September(un heated!).

Walking distance to a couple of restaurants, snack bar and two canoe hire places- a great way to spend half a day!

Nearest boulangerie is just over 1 mile away. Big supermarket on the outskirts of Sarlat ( approx 6 min drive).

The house had everything we needed and more!

I have been to the area a number of times and this is the best location and accommodation I have had!

Arnaud met us at the property to welcome us- thank you!

Lovely holiday....

  • 4 of 5

We have just spent a fantastic week staying at this property. The photos do not do the property the justification it deserves. The garden and pool are great and the kitchen very clean and modern. The location is quiet but with the river beach and restaurant within s 2/3 min walk.

Arnaud was very accomodating.

The area is stunning and we hope to return to the dordogne soon.

Great location, beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is well furnished and very well equipped. The children loved the pool and the table tennis and badminton were an added bonus. Fantastic kitchen and sociable eating area. Loved the fact it was a short walk to the Dordogne River, with its canoes and riverside bar. Arnaud could not have been more welcoming or helpful as our host.

Will be back again someday...

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful few days we had in the Dourdogne region...but much too short! There is still so much to see and experience! Though the sights of the chateaus, gardens and caves were what drew us to the region, our stay at Les Tournesols made our experience even more memorable. After a day out and about, it was lovely to come "home" to the wonderful tranquility of les Tournesols. Our family enjoyed the additional activities at the house: Ping pong every evening, badminton, soccer. We loved the open kitchen and the amount of light that came in as we sat together for our evening meals. We hope to return some day to enjoy the pool!

The house was exactly as described! Very clean and very well maintained! Linens and towels provided and the kitchen well supplied with plates, dishes, utensils and cooking pots and pans.

Arnaud and Isabelle are so lovely and were available for any questions. Our booking process went very smoothly without any complications. We were fortunate to be welcomed to their family farm and visit their donkeys, rabbits and horses! Our son still talks about one of their dogs, Locas, very much!

We plan to visit again and our first priority will be to stay Les Tournesols again! We will definitely recommend further to our family and friends! Thank you Arnaud and Isabelle!

Our best regards!
