This ancient and beautiful house has been most carefully restored and most comfortably furnished so that now it provides three large double bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, two lovely drawing rooms and a large kitchen where one can make a hot drink or use the fridge. The location is perfect, close to the river in the old part of Bergerac where the maze of narrow streets gives you cafes, restaurants and charming little shops very close at hand yet it is also close to the huge free carpark. The quiet little square in which it sits,has a lovely statue of the famed Cyrano de Bergerac so it is easy to find. We had the twin bed room at the top of the house which entails many stairs but worth it for the views. We stayed in winter yet the house was beautifully warm. The experienced hosts know well just what is useful and helpful for their guests. Personally I longed to own the house!
