  • Wonderful winter vaction

    "As it's name suggests, Mont Joie is indeed a mountain of joy, ideally located in the heart of the valley of the five castles. It's view is breathtaking and rivals some of the best that I've experienced. The home is ensconced in medieval history, from the the daily hike (the hike is steep) up the cobblestones to reach it and the ultimate reward for these efforts when you enter it's beautiful stone interiors that offer all modern conveniences. The small village is welcoming. Many local restaurants never fail to remind us that we don't need to go to Paris for fabulous food. This is our first time in the Dordogne during winter and feel it was one of our best winter vacations. There were no crowds, not many cars but plenty to keep us busy and much needed time to unwind and relax from our normal hectic schedules. We'd end our day in the late evenings enjoying the warmth and romance that eminated from an extrodinary and authentic, large stone fireplace. It was straight out of a romance novel. We loved it all and obviously highly recommend the region and stay at Mont Joie."

  • Beautiful house, excellent facilities, lovely view

    "We loved this beautiful farmhouse, the website photos look stunning and the reality is even better! The interior is beautifully designed and definitely has the “wow factor” as you walk in. The house is perfect for large groups of family or friends. We were 12 adults and found plenty of room for everyone to have their own space, and yet with dining and sitting areas able to accommodate the whole party, inside or outside. Everything is neat and clean on arrival, and the kitchen, bathrooms and other facilities all work well, especially the two new bathrooms and their attached bedrooms. Furnishings are comfortable, although the white coverings and linen might be challenging for those with young families! The house is well equipped with enough of everything to cater for 12 people, with the oven, fridge and dishwasher all up to the task. Outside, there is a variety of sitting places for sunshine and shade, the pool is lovely; very clean and with a “refreshing” temperature during our stay. The location is quiet and peaceful, and the views over the valley are lovely at all times of day, but most especially when helped by a glass or two of wine in the evening! Thenon is a nice village, with an excellent Carrefour – especially the butcher – and the nearby historic village of Ajat offers a wonderful Auberge for drinks or dinner. Further afield, Montignac’s Wednesday market is well worth a visit. The owner, who lives away, and his local representative were very friendly and helpful, and overall we would happily recommend Fontpoutreau as a great holiday location."
