Our holiday started the minute we arrived at the gates of this beautiful & rather grand house. We were welcomed by the owners who showed us round the extensive house and grounds which included a large patio & garden, pool, stables & barns complete with horses, ducks, chickens and the families friendly pet cats and dogs plus 2 large gites and an art studio! So much to see and take in. The rooms were incredibly spacious: 2 of them fit both a double and a single bed in them with loads of room left over and the other 2 had a double and 2 singles with room to spare! 3 bathrooms (each with a bath!) would make it brilliant for a large group. The house was tastefully decorated throughout whilst retaining its family feel and the spaciousness continued downstairs with other rooms such as the lounge, dining room and study (more like a small library!) The owners went to great efforts to make us feel at home including giving us beach towels for the sunbeds, nothing seemed too much trouble - they even gave us plums and figs from their trees! The place was so large that although the owners stayed in one of the other buildings onsite it felt as if we had the place to ourselves. Whilst we had everything we needed, Riberac is not very far away for food shopping, restaurants etc and a lot of the places of interest such as Brantome, Sarlat, Perigeaux etc are easily accessible (the owners helped with suggestions and directions too!). We felt so relaxed and comfortable there - it really was a home from home -that it was actually sad to say goodbye!
