We had an amazing stay at this lovely house in Marnac, Dordogne. There are lots of places to visit nearby including troglodyte caves, canoeing on the Dordogne and the pretty local town of St Ciprien. A particular highlight of the accommodation itself is the pool, with pool bar (with the addition of an ice machine) , outdoor shower and Roman Bath.
This house is perfect for a large family or 2 families to share, Colleen & David had thought of everything. The house is not only beautiful but had the most stunning view. We opted to have the pool heated which I think was money well spent as the children were never out of it. The surrounding area is one we know well and the property is very well located to explore the stunning local villages. The outside space worked really well for evening meals on the terrace. We did venture in to Dalgan for provisions and had a meal at Le Petit Paris, which was exceptional considering how rural you are. We had our car and this is a must as there are no amenities within walking distance but within a 30 minute drive you can certainly explore the very best the Dordogne has to offer, even if you are only staying for a week, as we were.
I wrote a "Top Tip" in the guest book but wanted to share it here too as this was one of the unexpected highlights of our holiday. We are not astronomers but due to the lack of light pollution on a clear night the stars were literally dazzling, a truly amazing spectacle, on one night alone we saw 4 shooting stars!
Thank you David & Colleen for sharing your beautiful house, we very much enjoyed it being "ours" for a week!
