Great place to stay. Plenty of room, comfortable and clean. Large living room facing out to patio area with good size pool, perfect for the hot weather. Nice gardens. Ideal base for exploring the region. Restaurants in the local town very good, especially Relais de Gabillou. Bergerac definitely worth a visit, also the lake with sandy beach at le Grand Etang - very nice spot for swimming and canoeing. Looking forward to our next visit to the Captains Cabin.

Thanks Cliff for your lovely comments. You are welcome to return anytime. Jerome the Chef and owner of Relais de Gabilou is quite a character and fluent in English. Our favourite restaurant!

“Very Relaxing setting”

Captains Cabin is a lovely property in a quiet setting. The pool is a excellent. The property has everything you could look for. It is not five star luxury, but its homely and the owners are very welcoming and do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable. Plenty of games, books and a pool table all provided.
Area is very quiet. Nearest town has all the basics requirements and a couple of supermarkets. You definitely need a car to get to any of the attractions.
Canoeing down the river was a highlight for our family.

What a wonderful place the pictures although nice do not do the cabin justice if you are looking for a place to stay that is quiet and extremely comfortable the cabin is for you.
The homeliness of the decor to the finishing hotel touches have been very thoughtfully managed you have the feeling of being a special comfortable guest in someone's home
My husband and I loved watching the stars while lying in the hammock late into the night
Mussidan itself is a lovely village with very welcoming locals from the greengrocers in the square the bakers by the church and the wonderful waitress who translated the menu with the help of a dictionary

“lovely peaceful getaway”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 for a stay in October 2013

Mum and I took the kids (10 & 12) for a short 5 day break. We went to several villages/towns for shopping & sightseeing and had some fabulous lunches out. We watched DVDs with the log fire in the evenings. It was too cold for the pool, but we played snooker, went for bike rides and a walk. One of our favorite trips was to the lake - it would be perfect with its sandy beach on a summers day.

“A lovely get-away-from-it-all place - great pool!”

We spent a week at 'Captains Cabin' with our three teenage daughters. The outside area was great, the pool was clean and there was plenty of room for sun loungers and outside dining. We spent a day at 'Le Grand Etang' (a lake about 40 minutes drive away) which had a lovely beach and a fab choice of food to buy. Bordeaux was only an hour away and we took advantage of the park and ride scheme - the city was very busy and was a contrast to the relaxing area of Bourgnac.

“Relaxing and peaceful family break”

We all relaxed the moment we walked through the door. The house was very comfortable and the rooms were cool and clean. There was plenty of space for the children to play in and many fun things to do, including swimming in the large pool, and even playing pool. The young children especially enjoyed walking through the small woods at the bottom of the garden area. We adults spent the evenings together outside by the pool area enjoying the peace and quiet after many a full day. Although there were bikes we never took the opportunity to go for a ride but the local area had some beautiful places to explore on a bike. Not too far to drive for local amenities.

What a lovely property this is. A great villa in which you can either relax and enjoy the beautiful garden and pool. Or use as a base to explore and enjoy the dordogne region. we loved relaxing on the veranda in the evenings. This is a wonderfully peaceful place to stay. We loved the local markets at MUSSIDAN and St Astier Bergerac is a beautiful place to visit and only 20 mins away with easy access. So many lovely local restaurants and local villages to visit. We canoed along 2 wonderful local rivers and spent 3 wonderful weeks exploring the region. A truly lovely holiday at a lovely peaceful villa which is perfect for families or couples alike. We can't wait to return. Merck beaucoup.
