Wonderful Setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week with good weather and having the pool was very welcome. With the property having large grounds we could walk our dogs without having to put their leads on. There is also plenty of seating inside and out including an under cover area which was great for shade whilst eating our lunches from the local boulangerie! We visited St Astier, Sarlat, Brantome, Perigeux and Riberac to name a few. James and Neil were very efficient with any questions and our deposit was refunded within hours of leaving. The only negatives we have were having to credit the dongle and that no basic supplies were left for us but these would in no way stop us recommending a stay at this lovely peaceful retreat.

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for two weeks in this lovely place. So peaceful just no noise . Bliss.Lovely countryside views and loved the garden and our chihuahuas loved it too. Was in the pool everyday as weather was HOT. Comfortable house with a large lounge and kitchen. Had all English programs on sky so didn't miss any of my programs. All doors open to the views which we liked a lot. Needed all fans going with the weather being hot.

Supermarket 10 mins away. Went to SarLOT a medival town which was very interesting with pretty streets,houses,buildings , great market and good shops. Also near by was a village with shops/houses built into the cliffs. Quite a journey but worth it. Lots of towns villages we went to many to see so much to see.

Fantastic,Beautiful Peacefull Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from this Fantastic holiday home in the Dordogne. An hour before leaving the UK we had pet passport issues, a nail in the tyre (no spare) and two hours into our 6.5 hour french drive, some Frenchman drove into me car !, so to say we had the hump and wanted to turn back is an understatement. However, we carried on like true spirited Brits & found the home easily thanks to Jame's guide & route. We were totally blown away by the sheer beauty of what we were met with walking around the property. All the problems of the last 24 hours had been forgotten (although we still had a nail in the tyre) We settled in and it truelly was like being at home for us (which we have never felt like in anyones holiday home) A choice of 3 bedrooms all with double beds, lovely fresh plump duvets and pillows all again of great quality.Each room having a floor standing fan (which was needed as the temp hit 80's. Bathroom with bath, and over shower that had a fully adjusable head on a flexi hose, sink & separate toilet. The living room area was huge with reclining furniture and a large plasma type tv with Sky box (with UK channels) Kitchen had enough room to cook full meals and loads of storage. The pool area and gardens are the best we have seen. So peacefull & quiet. The pool has steps to get in and is around 4.2 ft deep all over and is heated by a pump system not a cover, so available to use even if the weather is not on your side. Saint Astier is the local village and has a great market with fresh produce, there is also a lidls on the main route out 1 min from the village. If you head to Menzanec (10 min drive from the house) there is a Spar that stocks more choice of breads and spices than the Lidls or the Aldi''s..& there also is a petrol garage there.The Spar, like all shops close between 12-2 and closed all day Sunday.Take a drive to Sarlot, this is a must see place & if you are a game of thrones fan you will not be dissapointed by it's medieval look.It is not in the series but should be.Brantome is another fantastic place to visit, with it's river and Abbey, take a boat ride they leave at 11am, 2,3,4 & 5 pm daily, takes 50mins & costs around 7eu. We drove up from Le Harve & the toll's in total to the home came to around £40 each way. all machines take cards using contactless system so no tapping in numbers etc. There are routes to the home that do not go via toll roads but I would imagine they take longer. Lastly special thanks to James for all his help....

Fantastic, tranquil retreat with great pool

  • 5 of 5

We (five adults and dog) had a great stay here at the end of August/beginning of September. The house has everything you need and if you didn't want to explore the area you could laze by the pool all day. The views are beautiful.

We (me, husband & son) drove over from Yorkshire via Eurotunnel but 2 flew into Bergerac, which was about 40 minutes away and a lovely drive. Limoges airport is a bit further, about 2 hours, where we had to drop the son off.

We visited the Chateau at Bourdeilles, kayaked from Brantome to Bourdeilles, enjoyed the Friday market at Brantome, walked through Roque Christophe and had a lovely drive through the area.

There is a lot to do and loads of places to visit, only wish we'd had 2 weeks instead of 1. We were lucky to have such lovely weather too, the pool and bbq were used extensively as was the supermarket in St Astier!

Périgueux is the county capital of the Dordogne (its Préfecture) a territory roughly corresponding to the ancient Perigord. HERITAGE SITE: The UNESCO World heritage sites of the Lascaux Caves and the region around Les Eyzies. Many local markets to name a few, St Astier, Riberac, Brantome, Bergerac, Sarlat. Local canoeing at Sarlat, Brantome, St Astier. Many places to eat in Perigeuex, Begerac, Brantome, Riberac. Fishing available locally in St Aquilin.Sarlat-la-Caneda is really worth a visit. In the heart of the Perigord Noir, Sarlat grew up around a Benedictine abbey founded in the 9th century. It has a distinct medieval feel about it, with numerous magnificent buildings around every corner you turn. The towns Saturday market is also a main feature with its truffles, foie gras and mushrooms (depending on the season). Brantome is known as the 'Venice of the Perigord', has a VIIIc Benedictine Abbey with monastery gardens,caves 'Grottes du Denier Judgement' and superb restaurants.
