Stunning terraces and huge pool. Fantastic outdoor spaces and barbecue facilities
We booked this property for its pool and outdoor spaces. It was really wonderful for our two teenagers with its huge and very deep pool, stunning terraces (there were several!) and lovely grounds, including woodland walks and wild flowers. Close to some fabulous places along the Dordogne Valley like, Domme, La Rocque Gageac, Beynac and not far from Sarlat, it's a great base from which to explore the area, if you can tear yourself away from the lovely pool.
There are two houses on the property and we rented one, whilst the other was kept unoccupied. The house is in a simple traditional French farmhouse style. The kitchen is very small, with a combined microwave/oven on top of the fridge, which was a bit awkward, but we had barbecues on most nights and made the most of the outdoor eating spaces, so not a big issue for us.
The bathroom was clean and tidy and there was an additional toilet next to the kitchen. It doesn't have any hand washing facilities though and would benefit from a small washbasin.
The bedrooms all contained single beds, and access is via a fairly rickety wooden staircase with no handrail. Ok for us but not for anyone with walking difficulties. We were told that we had to pay an additional €15 per person for bedding and towels. We brought our own.
All in all, we had a fabulous holiday here and spent most of it enjoying the pool and the beautiful terraces. It really is a lovely property.
