Excellent place to holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous holiday with the family 2 children 5 and 7 plus 8 adults ranging from 20 to 60.The house had everything we could wish for. The bedrooms were beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The pool was really clean, and was cleaned whilst we were there. The gardens are huge and there are so many things to use, ie: badminton, trampolines, bikes you could never be bored.

We used the barbecues a lot and had the choice of dining at the front or rear of the house and inside.

The sunshine is on the balcony from early in the morning and all through the day, the views are fantastic.

Some of us visited road our-sur-glane about an hour away, famous ghost village after the war.

The market in Riberac on Friday was well worth a visit, very busy so get there early.

Kayaking at Brantome was a lovely day out. a market in the morning for those who didn't want to kayak.

All in all this is an excellent place for a holiday, some of us have already booked for next year, and for me personally we will definately be revisiting at some point.

Thank you to the owners who were extremely helpful when contacted for anything.

A very well presented, spacious house with wonderful views and sunsets.

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of eleven, ranging in age from two to seventy. We were all quite stunned and highly delighted by this house. Everything in it is of good quality, including the bed linen and there is so much space both inside and out. Every bedroom is a good size and with two kitchens and four fridges there is no need for frequent supermarket visits!

The outdoor space is great with terraces all around the house so you can follow the sun and wonderful gardens. The photos do not lie!

I can honestly say that at the end of the week no-one wanted to leave. We have stayed in many holiday rentals in France and this surpasses anything else. We will certainly return.

Location

Car: recommended

Sight seeing in the Dordogne can easily be explored, with a plethora of caves, fairy tale chateaux, and medieval towns and villages that are picturesque, they could be a stage sets for Les Miserable’s.

There are so many idyllic beautiful little hamlets and towns to visit Angouleme, Auberterre with its monolithic (subterranean) church, The tree-lined town square is full of cafés and quirky shops. Open air restaurants and a great river beach, Brantome better known as the Venice of the Dordogne a charming medieval town between the arms of the river Dronne, with its ancient monastery, grotto and canoeing on the river. Riberac with its wonderful Friday market. Saint Severin, Villeboris-Lavalette. With its old wooden covered market that dates back to the 16th century. Medieval towns like Sarlet are a must.

The Caves / Grottos are all worth a visit from rock formation stalactites - stalagmites and other curious shapes formed by water over thousands of years. Both types of caves are equally fascinating. It is not possible to view the prehistoric paintings without feeling a strange connection with our ancestors that stood in the same exact place.

The regions rich cuisine is most famous for its gourmet delights and excellent wines, notably pate de foie gras, con de canard (duck preserved in it own fat) walnuts and truffles.

Visit the famous Vineyards of Bordeaux, Bergerac and tour the brandy distilleries of Congac.

Our nearest town is Verteillac it offers an excellent bakery open every day through the summer, butcher, general store, bank with 24hr ATM , post office, newsagent, lively cafes and several good restaurants, including a pizza takeaway tobacconist, hairdresser and a tourist all set around a beautiful cobble stoned square and 19th century church.

This lovely area is also a haven for walkers, cyclist’s bird watchers and artists.

We have provided lots of information on places of interest. Castle, chateau, caves, restaurants, river beaches, canoeing, tennis, golf, horse riding, zip wire, paint ball, markets, shops and so much more.

At the house we have a TV room which is great for playing games with a large TV, video , DVD player and music centre, a large selection of videos and books all for your enjoyment. The games room has a full size pool table and darts board.

The large grassed area has badminton, basket ball, and football nets. The children’s play area has swings, trampolines and a selection of other toys for young and older children.

We offer a range of cycles, golf clubs, croquet set, darts, table tennis full size pool table and French boules.

Children can safely entertain themselves with the facilities in the house and grounds while you the adults can relax.
