The reviews say it well – this is a PERFECT stay for families with young children. A safe place for our 8 and 10 year old boys to run, play soccer, swim, and play games with Adam and Alice, even while mom and dad took in a delicious dinner prepared by Ian. There just aren't many destinations that offer this type of open, safe and easy recreation for kids in a country hamlet setting that allow parents to truly relax. Given the family-friendly guest attraction, your kids will never be short of other children to play with.
Sara and Ian are terrific hosts, who are resourceful, responsive and most pleasant. When we arrived after hours our first night, Sara kindly prepared us a snack plate along with a bottle of wine. Sara also helped us look into French camps for our boys who attend a French school in San Francisco.
We stayed in the Grapevine apartment with Breadroom annex, since the Passiflore was already booked for part of our stay, so we had more than enough space and privacy. The kitchens are well equipped making it easy for us to cook meals and even grill on the patio for several nights, enjoying our purchases from the St. Cyprien market on Sunday.
After a stay in London and Paris on the same trip, our family unanimously agreed that Le Chevrefeuille and the Dordogne experience was the gem of our vacation, although a lovely city/country balance overall. We could have easily extended our 1-week stay as we had had several other sites we would have liked to take in. Our highlights included: Font-de-Guame (a favorite), Beynac, Castlenaud, canoeing on Les Vezeres, biking through the rolling hills outside Le Chevrefeuille and exploring a truffle farm.
I hope we are fortunate enough to return to Le Chevrefeuille!
