Très beau séjour
"Nous avons passé une semaine ensoleillée parfaite ! Le cadre est très agréable, conforme au descriptif. La maison est très bien située, à 15 min de Sarlat. Et la piscine, même en septembre/octobre, est très appréciable ! Ce fut un plaisir de découvrir cette région !"

A beautiful and quiet retreat in the center of Dordogne touring
"We spent a week at the end of June at this extraordinary house, and all agreed we could not have done better.
The village is quiet, with no services, but everything - food, necessities, touring - is within a 5-10 minute drive. We were grateful that we had not stayed in Sarlat or one of the nearby small tourist towns; they were extremely congested. Each day it was special to return to Maison d'Etre, the pool, the terrace, the great kitchen, and all its comforts.
We like to shop for food and cook at home as much as possible. The Sunday market at St Cyprien and the Wednesday market at Sarlat were great events in themselves, and made it possible to have fresh local food every day of the visit. The kitchen has everything one could want (and we are demanding when it comes to cooking). The supermarket at St Cyprien filled every other random need.
The owners extensive suggestions were extremely helpful, and right on the mark. We followed their advice on canoeing arrangements, markets, and shops and saved a lot of time and aggravation. (You also have to give extra points to owners that name their house with a pun.) The instructions for the house and appliances were detailed and clear. There were instructions for contacting neighbors and others in the event of problems, but we had no need, as everything worked without a hitch. There were detailed TV instructions, but we never turned it on. The dining room is large and well appointed, but we ate every meal on the terrace.
We had two or three days of extreme heat (over 100 F) and the stone house kept comfortably cool, and the pool and shaded outdoor dining made it enjoyable. The master bedroom and bath is large and very well appointed. The two upstairs bedrooms were less fancy but quite comfortable. They did get hot during the heat wave, but that we cured with a cheap electric fan.
We hope to return to the Dordogne and its great sights and food, and beautiful river. We have not found anything that suits a visit better than La Maison d'Etre."

"Our second visit to this splendid holiday house at the end of August. This time we brought all the family(6adults and 2 children)to share our experience of Sarlat.
Jean the owner promptly answered all my queries before our arrival. He even allowed us to arrive early and park so we could visit the market in the town. Something not to be missed.
The owner has provided comfortable leather seating, a well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, air conditioning. The grandchildren slept on the bed settee upstairs. Great outdoor space, the terrace has wonderful views of Sarlat. Huge table for family meals. We never ate inside as beautiful weather. The pool was a great attraction for everyone as was the billiard table and table tennis. The children loved the swing and playing in the garden.
The path down into town takes about 5-10 minutes. You need a torch if you come back late in the evening. We used our mobiles. The town itself is bustling with shops and restaurants, entertainment was on every corner. Make sure you go down in the evening, lots of musicians.
Thanks for allowing us to stay in your beautiful house and many thanks for the wine and nut gateaux which was waiting for us on arrival. I would recommend this holiday house, you will not be disappointed. The owner has thought of everything to make your stay special."

"Une semaine de pur bonheur, un accueil chaleureux de Marc et Nathalie qui sont aux petits soins, tout en restant discrets. Le chalet, est propre et fonctionnel, le cadre magnifique. La région est juste magique...et tellement de choses à découvrir sans forcément faire beaucoup de kilomètres. Pour une première c'était trop court, j'y retournerai et je recommande vivement ce petit paradis."
