Quiet, comfort and space for families and couples. Spread out and relax in sun or shade in this practical, easy to manage, house. Great base for exploring the Dordogne: bikes supplied. Acropark, swimming pool and shopping within easy reach.

The space

The property is practical and comfortable and all on one level. It has an open plan kitchen diner/living room with a large dining table. The kitchen has French doors opening out onto a cool shaded north facing area. There is a comfortable seating area in the living room with a settee and two extremely comfy reclining chairs with footstools. There is a fabulous wood burner for colder seasons.

There are two bedrooms, a double with French doors to the south facing front of the house, and a bedroom with both bunk beds and another single.

The bathroom is comfortable with bath and shower over and beyond that there is a large garage area and an extra room where the washing machine is.

The garden is huge containing fruit and nut trees, blackberries, and the odd rabbit.

We have enjoyed this place very much, a real escape to the country side. Very quiet and pleasant. Thanks to Amanda for a warm welcome and to Stephan for the smooth communication.

Mauvaise expérience à cause de désagréments au niveau propreté de la cuisine et de la salle de bain, mobilier extérieur cassé, linge et serviettes usés voire élimés. La gazinière toute neuve ne fonctionne pas correctement. Les robinets de la baignoire sont complètements grippés. Le jardin est rempli d'orties et de ronces. Il a fallu restreindre continuellement notre fils de moins de 2 ans de jouer librement dans le jardin. De plus les barrières sont soit cassées, soit inopérantes. Tous ces éléments mis bout à bout participent à un ressentiment général qui s'estompe petit à petit. Le fait que le propriétaire ne soit pas revenu vers nous avec des explications ou excuses quant à l'état général du logement font que nous ne recommandons pas ce logement.

Response from Stephan:
Si vous lisez les autre revues de notre maison, on dirait qu'il parle d'une maison totalement différente. J'ai laissé une revue de ce visiteur (en anglais) que voici: All I can say is it was a little strange. I don't like putting negative reviews but the experience was not positive I'm afraid. I wasn't there personally but Amanda looked after them. She told me when she showed him around that he would walk away as she was explaining things, to inspect the place on his own. He kept insisting the hob didn't work, even after being shown at least twice that it did work fine, arguing with the man who installed it that it didn't work, even though it did, and that he hadn't fitted it right (I have a video of the hob working as it should). More puzzlingly, the front lounge door always worked fine, opening and shutting effortlessly. Since these guests have left, the lock jams and the door cannot be locked. According to Amanda, the handle no longer turns upwards and the key is now immovable in the lock for her as it takes a great deal of strength. Thankfully the next guests were very understanding about that. Amanda also had great difficulty in communicating with him. He would text her constantly about supposed problems (like the hob) but wouldn't return calls when she tried to contact him. Amanda's impression was that it seems like he was looking for problems, wondering around with a little screwdriver. The feeling that I got, after receiving an email from him, what that maybe he was expecting hotel-like service. Despite this, he left the place clean and observed the rules as far as we can tell. But the above makes it hard to recommend them to others.

Si vous êtes à la recherche de calme, de tranquillité et de sérénité ce gîte est pour vous fois. d'autant plus qu'il offre également la possibilité de commerces de proximité (Boulangerie supermarché) et surtout accès à toutes les richesses du Périgord

Pack de bienvenue (produit de 1ère "nécessité") fut apprécié. Equipement réduit au minimum notamment côté cuisine (5 assiettes pour 5 couchages, pas de couvert à salade ....). Terrain peu praticable (en pente).

I'm a French dad who loves the peace and quiet when the kids have enough space to run around. I love this part of the French countryside and try to make as much time as possible to enjoy it with friends and family.

I'm a tech and science writer, an Apple consultant and a videographer.

There is so much to explore around this part of the Dordogne, and plenty of bikes to do it on. I hope you will love being at our cosy little retreat as much as we do.
