Charmant séjour en Dordogne
Nous avons passé un agréable séjour au calme, piscine très appréciée de toute la famille.
Maison charmante très bien équipée et spacieuse.
Laurent, Stéphanie et les enfants.
Thank you for your great review. Yes, it's a great place for a quiet stay to relax and explore the area. The pool is great to cool off in during those warm summer days!! Hope you will stay with us again. Kind regards Nigel
Wonderful Property in a Perfect Setting
We had a lovely week at Nigel's property! Peaceful and secluded, a perfect place to unwind and shut off from the world! Found a lovely swimming lake nearby with beach and small play park which we and the kids loved (in Nantheuil). Lots to do in the area, but also great time just spent in the garden, next to the pool or on the balcony with a book. It was great to have the pool and would stress to all future families with young children, the pool alarm is truly a lifesaver and works as it should, as it was tested by out 2 year old within 30 minutes of arriving at the property! Thankfully all was fine and once all had recovered from the shock the experience actually made all 3 of our children more sensible around the pool.
The photographs do not do this property justice and is a lovely welcome when you first arrive to discover the area and space inside and out which is included! Would recommend to anyone in search of peace, quiet and a true family get away!
Thank you Nigel
Thank you for taking the time to do this review. I'm delighted you found the cottage a great place to relax and get a well earned break we are always really pleased when guests get the same enjoyment out of the cottage as we do.
Thanks for saying you would recommend it to anyone in search of peace, quiet and a family get away, we have always thought that and it's great you felt the same.
Yes a good book on the balcony is a great way to while away a few hours, my wife will agree with you on that!!
Hope you will stay with us again in the future and many thanks for trusting your well earned holiday to us.
Charmant cottage dans un très beau cadre relaxant
Nous avons passé une semaine dans cette belle maison toute équipée pour les familles. Il ne manque rien, de la piscine aux jeux de société en passant par le badminton et la pétanque il est difficile de s'ennuyer. Le cadre est idyllique et reposant. Des charmants villages à visiter dans les alentours, le coin est également idéale pour des balades à pied ou en vélo. Nous reviendrons sûrement l'année prochaine.
Thank you for your great review. Delighted you had a great time and enjoyed your stay at the cottage. Look forward to you staying with us again next year. Kind regards Nigel
A beautiful cottage in a fantastic rural location
A great cottage set amongst lovely surroundings with views overlooking the countryside. Fully equipped with modern appliances for all cooking and clothes washing, good sized pool, sports / entertainment equipment. Property is rustic with good sized rooms throughout. A good central location within the Dordogne area with numerous attractions nearby.
Thanks for your kind comments. The new kitchen has been a great addition to the cottage. As you say it is a great location for exploring the region and returning to for a nice relaxing evening. Hope you will stay with us again.
A relaxing vacation
Our second holiday here. We had stayed last summer. No disappointments on our return. Scenery scenic, roads quiet and house clean, spacious, well equipped with a new kitchen installed since our last stay. Too far to walk to the nearest bar but this can be seen as an advantage with teenagers.
Perfect for cycling ( so long as your enjoy hills!)
Thank you for your review. Delighted you have enjoyed your stay again with us this year, it is always nice to have returning guests. The new kitchen is a welcome addition to the cottage and I am pleased you liked it. Hopefully you will consider staying with us again in the future.
A beautiful place to stay
We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay here. The location of the house and view from the garden is one of the best we've experienced. It is very peaceful and we were able to spend many relaxing days in the garden, using the pool and other facilities. The house is very well equipped and provided everything we needed and more. The house is close to many lovely towns and a very pretty local chateau is only five minutes away by car. Great customer service from Nigel and on site by Mervyn, a neighbour. Great place, great food and wine,great weather. What more could you want. We thoroughly recommend this property.
Thank you for your kind comments. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at the cottage and made good use of the garden and pool. The cottage provides a great base for exploring the local area and offers a nice place to return to after a long day sight seeing.
Hope you will stay with us again soon.

We are also also perfectly situated to explore the tresors of occitania with its rich cultural and historical buildings, chateaux and bastides. The Atlantic coast is just 2-3hours distant by car. There are also many local lakes within easy reach offering a wide range of water sports and other facilities including dining.
