Great location, excellent villa
The villa is in a great location for visiting everywhere in the Dordogne from Bergerac to Sarlat. The weather was particularly hot when we stayed (35-40C) so the pool was a welcome relief from the heat. Also, the downstairs stayed cool. The beds were very comfortable and the decor was also of a very high standard. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the property. Lalinde is close by with a good supermarket for supplies.
Many thanks for your review Rupert and your recommendation and for choosing Villa Marguerite for your holiday .... we love it too!

Outstanding property inside and out
We have stayed in private villas in France, Spain and Portugal over the years, but nothing compares to the beautiful Villa Marguerite. The house - furniture, decor, garden were stunning, and would not be out of place in Homes and Garden magazine. We had a wonderful week, relaxing by the pool, but also took the opportunity to visit many areas of the Dordogne, as the villa is ideally placed for such excursions. We would recomend it without reservation and hope to revisit in the not too distant future.

Beautiful home from home fantastic location
Beautiful home in a great location with the dordogne literally on your doorstep. There is plenty to do for the children in the area and loads of great places to eat reasonably priced too!! Well maintained property and the kids loved the pool it is even better than the pictures. Easy reach of some beautiful local towns and activities. Wendy and Lou were fantastic responding to any emails we had immediately whilst we were away and even posting our kindle that we had left behind!! Highly recommended stress free holiday.... Home from home.
We were absolutely delighted with this property. We chose it because it looked lovely in the pictures, but the pictures just don't do the house justice. It has been lovingly restored by the owners and they have thought of everything. It is the nicest property we have ever stayed at and for once I can't think of one thing that could be improved. The beds really were comfortable, and it was spotlessly clean. The outdoor eating facilities were fantastic but the dining room was also a lovely place to eat when the weather wasn't so good. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit this beautiful part of the Dordogne. Thank you Wendy and Lou for giving us the opportunity to stay in your wonderful French home and for being such excellent hosts.
We probably picked the worst week of weather this year in the Dordogne, however that did not detract from this wonderful villa, it's in a great location, fantastic indoors, great outdoors, beds are unbelievable, best nights sleep ever. would I go back??? with some sunshine!!! tomorrow. Enjoy.
Many thanks for your review Barry and really pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the weather, hope it's better next time!

At the confluence of the Dordogne and Vezere Rivers, Limeuil offers canoeing and a river beach, a pretty village 20 minutes drive through the hills with scenic views of the Dordogne on the way, well worth a visit and classified as one of "the most beautiful villages of France".
It's a 2 hour drive to Arcechon, famous for its large sand dunes just south of Bordeaux on the Atlantic Coast.
Bergerac airport is 25km distance and is serviced by Ryanair and Flybe. Car hire is available at the airport.
Bordeaux airport is 2 hours drive served by Easy Jet and Britsh Airways.
From the Brittany Ferries port of Caen, it's an easy drive of about 7 hours almost all on motorways.
There is a station in Lalinde on the main Bordeaux-Sarlat line with connections to Paris from Bordeaux.
Lalinde 3km. Bergerac 25km. Perigueux 45km. Sarlat 40km. St Emilion 70 km, Bordeaux 100km.
The local bastide town of Lalinde on the River Dordogne has bars, restaurants and a large supermarket and also the largest weekly market in the area every Thursday. The main local town of Bergerac has fine restaurants in the old quarter of the town near the river. Monbazillac, home of the luscious golden dessert wine and just 40 minutes drive is well worth a visit for the wine tasting at the chateau. For red wine lovers, you can make the beautiful old town of St Emilion in just over an hour away. At Les Ezyies 40km you have the prehistoric caves and origins of man. There are many medieval towns in the region such as Sarlat, Monpazier and Villereal all with their summer night markets and festivals. For the more active minded, as well as golf, there is canoeing on the Dordogne and horse riding. Aqua Park Junior Land is 10 minutes from Bergerac, on the way to Bordeaux, between vineyards and the Dorgdogne river and 5km from Chateau de Montbazillac. There are four 1,000 square metre swimming pools with water slides and direct access to the river for canoeing activities. Mountain biking, beach volleyball, table tennis and archery are also available here along with jacuzzi, sauna and hammam. There are many pretty villages and bastide towns within a 30 minute drive of the house such as Montpazier, Limeuil, Issigeac, Beaumont, Cadouin, Eymet etc most with weekly night markets and Issigeac with its famous Sunday morning market. The 15 minute drive over the hills to Tremolat is a must for the fabulous view of the Dordogne River topped of by an indulgent meal in the gardens of Vielle Logis, a Relais Chateau hotel. Fishing. Lac de Neufont (Phone : 05.53.07.87.92) is just outside the small pretty town of Vergt about 20 kilometres North of Lalinde. It has a bistro and 2 sandy beaches too and day and half day tickets are available. Otherwise, the Lalinde canal and town lake are favourites for the locals, you will probably need a permit for these.
