A well appointed property in beautiful surroundings
A lovely secluded property, perfect for walkers and lovers of tranquility. The farmhouse is quirky and fairly basic but well worth the visit and at the height of summer it was an absolute bargain. The stairs may not be suitable for the elderly but a family would be very comfortable here. Lovely big kitchen. Beautiful grounds.
peaceful, relaxing break
In a lovely area of France - on the doorstep of the Dordogne so close to popular tourist attractions for trips out, but retaining a very rural feel. Perfect for those wanting to relax and soak up rural life in France, and also for those wanting to cycle the lanes without cars zooming by all the time, or walkers on the many woodland tracks.
Thanks Diane glad you enjoyed your stay, hope to see you again next year
Cadre agréable, grand jardin donnant sur un bel étendu de verdure. Endroit calme car situé en bout de route. Maison confortable mais mal équipée en matière d'ustensiles de cuisine. Je recommande cette location qui permet de passer de bonnes vacances.
