After a long flight from Australia and a quick city stay in Paris it was a relief to slow down and stay at the amazing Maisons La Boissiere for 5 nights. My husband and I stayed in La Boulangerie and loved it. The view over the valley was perfect. First two days my husband got a bug so he as he slept it off in the cozy room so I took advantage of the pool in the lovely heat and read. We were lucky no one else was staying at the other two gites which made it even more special. Stu and Tish were great hosts, friendly and we knew if we needed anything they were there yet they still gave us the privacy we wanted. They even lent my husband his personal portable dvd player and dvd's to watch in bed and gave him some medication to get him on the mend.
La Boissiere is a great location to base yourself to explore the great Dordogne, Sarlat is a 25 minute drive and the little towns are a 5 minute drive away to stock up on food.
We recommend this place to stay for your next French countryside getaway.
