Interaction with guests
As little or as much as they would like - we are there to help if they need us.
La Porcherie is set in a very peaceful hamlet and set on a quiet lane where the odd tractor and horse pass by and very little traffic. From the doorstep you can walk or cycle for miles without hardly ever meeting any traffic, even in the high season but at the same time, we are not far from the lovely villages of St. Severin and Allemans where there are bars/restuarants and other amenities. Riberac, our nearest large town is about 10 minutes away and has larger supermarkets, post office, banks and hosts weekly music evenings in the town square for free. There is such a lovely family atmosphere here, you won't want to leave.
You will need a car as there is no public transport in the area and we can hire you bikes.
Other things to note
Larger supermarkets are now open Monday to Sunday lunchtime including petrol stations - small shops still close between 12pm and 2pm for the lunchtime break.
We just ask guests to respect the properties and the grounds so that the property remains looking lovely for everybody. There is no smoking inside the properties and please ask us regarding bringing pets.
