  • Perfect location, cozy and homey cottage, helpful owners -- just what we wanted!

    "I can't recommend this cottage highly enough -- especially for families with young children. I stayed for one week with my husband and two small daughters -- a 2-year-old and a 6-month-old. I was truly sad to leave -- it felt like it had become our home. Emmanuelle was responsive (and very patient!) to all my questions about the cottage and how it would work for my young children. (Such as could we leave the shutters open in their room in the August heat and not worry about an intruder? Not an issue because of the clever ways the shutters can be closed, she patiently explained -- and was so correct.) She even arranged for a travel cot for the baby to sleep in. She really went above and beyond what she needed to do to be helpful and make us feel welcome. Once we arrived, it really felt like we were staying in a home. The location also couldn't be better. Every morning my daughters and I would open the shutters and take big breaths of the sea air. So close to the market, the bakeries, the beaches, and the downtown. We didn't have a car and never missed it. We took the bus from the airport, walked the few blocks from the bus stop to the cottage, and walked everywhere else after that. Some other highlights: Fast wifi -- so we could stream youtube videos of french lessons! And listen to the BBC in the morning. Lots of helpful binders of information about the town. Useful leftovers from previous visitors -- such as beach toys, rain umbrellas, some very good books, and even a beach umbrella that we used every day. Regular communication from Emmanuelle checking in on our visit. Like other reviewers noted, the door and front windows do open right up onto the street and sidewalk. But even with two children, we were not troubled by the noise or the presence of people walking by. There seems to a courtesy rule that people walking by don't peek in! I put the pram in front of the open door and I never worried that my toddler would run into the street. Other reviewers also commented on the "coziness" of the cottage. Yes, it's small -- but that was part of the fun -- all being together. And there was a lovely park around the corner and the beach just down the road if anyone needed to get away for a moment of silence (often necessary with 2 young children). I really can't recommend this place highly enough! I already hope to return."

  • Fabulous

    "This home was absolutely perfect for us. The open kitchen, living room and ocean front deck gave us the continuous feeling of being on the beach. We could walk to the beautiful phare and Grande Plage and the restaurants and shops, and enjoyed using the amenities at the Sofital. As water and beach people, we couldn't have asked for a better location and dwelling."

  • Une semaine au manoir : presque un rituel familial

    "C'est la 3ème année que nous revenons au manoir en famille ,parents , enfants & petits-enfants, pour les vacances de Toussaint , preuve de notre satisfaction quant à la location , tant pour sa situation , que la beauté du lieu & l'accueil efficace & discret de la propriétaire. Le site internet reflète parfaitement la réalité des lieux : de grands espaces intérieurs, chaleureusement aménagés qui donnent l'impression d'être non pas en location mais dans une maison de famille , 5 chambres & leurs sanitaires qui permettent de loger 12 personnes sans problème.Les lits faits à l'arrivée & le linge de toilette & de maison à disposition sont un plus appréciable.La cuisine est parfaitement équipée avec vaste frigo & congélateur, machine à café, robots ménagers... Le salon dont la vaste cheminée permet de belles flambées lorsque le soir tombe. C'est là que tout le monde se retrouve après une journée passée à sillonner le domaine à pied ou à vélo , à échanger quelques balles sur le court de tennis ou la table de ping pong, à faire une partie de pétanque ou même à pêcher dans l'un des étangs de la propriété. Nul besoin de quitter le manoir durant la semaine , tant les activités y sont variées , sauf pour s'approvisionner au bourg de Mussidan (15 mn en voiture) où l'on trouve tous les commerces nécessaires ou pour flâner sur le beau marché de Bergerac. La propriété est idéale pour des retrouvailles familiales en pleine nature, à l'écart du bruit & de l'agitation citadine & je la recommanderai volontiers à des amis. Un grand merci à Mme Dickson & à Ian , toujours à l'écoute de leurs hôtes."

  • Couldn't have been better

    "This was our (two couples of AARP vintage) third home stay venture in France and our unanimous favorite, with its painting-like views of the Dordogne River and valley...and nearby patisserie! The stone house and its decor and furnishings are lovely and comfortable, the kitchen charming and furnished with everything we needed to make all our meals. We took full advantage of the beautiful weather for outdoor dining and adventuring to the surrounding villages, castles, and prehistoric sites, and thatJeri and Paul, our wonderful hosts, were always there to answer questions. Sharing a glass of wine, and joining them and a group of friends on a Sunday hike will always be part of our fondest memories."
