5 of 5 stars Reviewed 14 January 2015 for a stay in July 2014

We have stayed in this beautiful house in Fonteau several times - the perfect French escape. Beautiful grounds, lots of fruit trees and the house is big and clean with everything you need for young children.
Lovely rural towns, just a short drive away, include Riberac, with its wonderful market and Aubeterre, a stunning place with a wonderful swimming river. There's a fantastic swimming lake nearby, where we go almost every day - great for the kids, with lifeguards, cafes, playgrounds, woods and beaches. In no time at all you can get to the larger historic town of Perigeux; even trips to Bordeaux and its surrounding vineyards don't take too long. Daytrips to the seaside town of Royan are also great.
The owners are brilliant at making you feel welcome, sorting out everything you need and answering any questions. They have a wealth of local knowledge (one of them grew up in the area) and they are happy for you to harvest any fruit that is in season.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed 27 November 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We rented this property for a month. On arrival we were pleasantly surprised at the overall scale of the property, both inside and out. The rooms were very spacious & clean, the kitchen was well appointed and easy to use and the outside space was amazing. We had two young boys with us and the owner had left a number of toys and games for us to use both inside and outside. The location of the property is ideal, with a choice of beaches and other child activities within 15 minutes we were never short of things to do. The renowned market at Riberac is only 10 minutes away where it is possible to find just about everything. The owner & his wife were extremely friendly & helpful right from our first enquiry, and we shall certainly be returning here again. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in the Dordogne. more
