“Perfectly unbeatable holiday”
Reviewed 7 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Great location in lush green countryside, and 10-15min stroll to a small village with 4 restaurants/bars, 2 boulangeries, 1 excellent boucherie/traiteur and a great Carrefour for everything else. The cottage itself is an ok-sized living/dining/kitchen area + shower/loo, but has everything you need for holiday catering. The bedroom is enormous, with an equally giant and very comfortable bed. You step straight out from the living area onto a pebbled terrace with dining equipment, bbq and sun loungers. The loungers are heaven to flop on after a day canoeing, walking, river/lake swimming or plain old over-eating! For cloudy days, it's an easy drive to major prehistoric sites in the Vezere valley like Lascaux, also geological caves, chateaux, medieval towns. It's ridiculous how much there is to do here, and equally, how much the peace and quiet is so conducive to doing absolutely nothing. If you're a foodie, you'll be like a kid-in-sweet-shop, what with the local nut wines, foie gras, truffles, duck, cheese and wine etc. Steve is a good person to talk food with, and very generous with his eggs! We are already missing it all, especially Scooby, who is the best (if greediest) host anyone could wish for.

The bed really is something else I know and together with the peaceful surrounding, so many guests don't want to get up !! Thank you for a great review, and hopefully we'll see you again sometime soon. Kindest regards Karen and Steve

“Friendly, comfortable, great value”
Reviewed 15 September 2012 for a stay in March 2012

We had a wonderful time and enjoyed getting to the owners a bit. They were so kind and hospitable. The cottage was quite comfortable as well. It was nice to have a king-sized bed to sleep in. There is a store nearby where we bought fresh vegetables and cooked most of our dinners in the kitchen after sightseeing all day. I would highly recommend this to friends, great place to relax and a good home base from which to explore the Dordogne and Bordeaux.

Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay. It’s great to know that you enjoyed your holiday here. We did think about installing an oven but space was an issue and most people seem to be content preparing quite simple meals. But we really do appreciate the feedback, thanks again. Warmest regards Karen and Steve

Thank you for such a great review. You are quite right, to get the most out of your holiday here and to see all the sites, a car is necessary. Maybe we'll see you again sometime soon, so that you can get to do the things you missed first time round. Thanks again, warmest regards Karen and Steve
