Pool / Spa
We had a fantastic staying. The house is gorgeous outside and inside, the garden and pool as well. The house has been renovated with taste and a lot of respect of the materials and local architecture. The area is very peaceful and green. The Périgord is an amazing area, a lot of places to visit. Well...it was perfect. We will definitely come back, one week was way to short.
We are delighted you enjoyed all aspects of the house and garden and would certainly welcome you back another year. Thank you for your review.
Beautiful house in a lovely location
Fantastic stone property surrounded by rolling fields and woods in lovely rural location. The house is very spacious and finished to a high standard with everything you need - particularly in the kitchen. we had brilliant weather and were able to enjoy the area to the full, although leaving the pool was hard to do. We hope to return again.
This was our second visit to Montelieu and we enjoyed it as much as the first. The rural location is idyllic, surrounded by farmland and nearby woods. The property is very well-maintained, well-equipped, and extremely comfortable. There are plenty of places for sitting out in the sun, or shade. The salt water pool is a joy to swim in.
The local shops in Sainte-Alvere are very good.
Thank you for such a good review we were delighted to have you back for a second time.
Love,u rural farmhouse
Great holiday. Property as described with lots of lovely features but still modernised to make comfortable with heating. Fridge. Cable tv etc. Tastefully furnished and the owners were helpful in supplying various bits for our young children. They were very helpful with queries and recommendations for the local area. Our. Toddler loved the gardens and the pool, the shady bits were appreciated!
As keen cooks the well equipped kitchen was appreciated and shopping in the local market was great fun. I also appreciated the library when the kids were in bed - bliss to sit with a glass of wine, watch the sun set and read a book.
My onky feedback would be some better guidance to local markets and shops a,d restaurants opening times.
Lovely rural getaway
What a lovely house. We stayed with our toddler and had a perfect week. The house is as described and well maintained. The owners had kindly supplied all we had asked for our toddler. Great pool and some very good recommendations for activities in the surrounding areas. I particularly appreciated the "library" in the evenings when children were asleep, sitting and reading with a glass of wine was a pleasure. Can't wait to come back next year. Thank you. Ps some notes in the house on local store opening times etc would be helpful!
Thank you for your kind review. We will mention opening times of local shops in our house book.
We look forward to receiving your family again in the near future.
Will go back!
We stayed in this beautiful stone farmhouse last summer with our three children.
The house was just what we wanted with a well equipped clean kitchen and a lovely salt pool. The house is surrounded by fields and woodland with plenty of walks.
It is totally secluded but only 4kms from the village of Ste Alvere were there are most facilities .
The owners were very helpful answering my pre booking questions.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
What a lovely review I am really pleased you all enjoyed yourselves, thank you for your kind comments
Set in the heart of the Perigord Noir 4 kms from the pretty village of St. Alvere, where you can find restaurants, bar/tabac, bank with ATM, post office, bakers, supermarket and a tourist office with internet service, every Monday there is a market. .Visit the famous tourist attractions of Les Eyzies and the Lascaux caves for some of the finest examples of prehistoric art in existence. The Dordogne river meets the river Verzere at Limeuil 10kms away where you can enjoy canoeing and kayaking and other water sports. Walled Bastide towns of Sarlat, Monpazier, Domme, and Beaumont are all worth a visit transporting you back in time to the 13th and 14th centuries. Not to mention numerous châteaux, ancient abbeys and churches, gardens and pretty villages. In the bustling markets of Perigueux and Bergerac you will be offered the local specialities of truffles, fois gras, walnuts and cheeses. For wine buffs St Emilion and the famous vineyards of Bordeaux are a good day out
