Pool / Spa
Beautiful home which was very comfortable for 8 of us.
We had a great time in this large Bergerac house. Large and comfortable. Frederic and his mother were very hospitable and nothing was too much trouble. The house is well situated close to town and the river. The only concern was that the staircases to upper levels were both very narrow and spiral so may present some difficulty for people with compromised mobility. The meal that France made for us on our last evening was delicious and showed off local cuisine beautifully. Thanks Phyllis and Frederic for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home.
