Very pretty and peaceful setting
The cottage is surrounded by trees and we were visited by, amongst other things, a young deer and a red squirrel. Inside was spotlessly clean and we had everything we needed. The owners, Sarah and Paul, were very friendly and kind, made sure we were comfortable and told us about the local area, market days etc. The cottage is ideally placed for trips out to the numerous chateaux, gardens, prehistoric caves, picturesque villages and other places of interest. One chateau is literally a few minutes down the road and the nearby Dordogne river offers beautiful views as well as canoe or boat trips. All in all, a lovely holiday destination.
Perfect cottage for a wonderful familiy vacation
My wife and I along with our 4-year-old daughter had an absolutely wonderful holiday stay at the La Lande cottage. The location was scenic and quiet - perfect for relaxing. At the same time we were not far from canoeing on the Dordogne river and many stunning villages such as Castelnaud and Beynac.
The entire cottage was in tip-top shape. I was particularly impressed with the kitchen - it is nice to spend some dinners away from resturants and we had everything we needed for a few evenings of dining in. Although we have a small family, there is plenty of space for larger families in the cottage.
While the house by itself was great, the owners Paul and Sarah ensured our entire vacation experience was perfect. This was our first visit to Dordogne and the owners offered great guidance to resturance and actitivies - especially geared to a great holiday with out young daughter. While I could say more great things, I will sum up by saying that we extending our holiday to spend more days at the cottage as we did not want to go home.
