Our stay at Saint-Martin-des-Combes will be in our memories for a long time. Quiet, serene, tranquil and carefully maintained, this former barn is a modern oasis in the country. The owner Michel is so friendly and a very knowledgable resource for everything local. A short walk will bring you to an enchanted castle and a little further to a medieval hilltop village that is a photographer's dream. We enjoyed the modern pool and barbecue for grilling locally sourced market fare for our evening meals. All appliances and electronics are very up to date. Winery visits, long lunches at fine restaurants and very friendly locals made for a "vacances parfait".
We have stayed at HomeAway rentals over the last six years. This place is by far the best we have encountered. Jill and Marie-Helene have been fantastic hosts, giving us privacy but at the same time seeing that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. From the minute we walked in the front door we knew we would enjoy each and every day. To save us an immediate trip to the grocery store, Jill provided a bottle of wine, fresh eggs from the chickens (who roam the yard), milk in the refrigerator, pizza and salad, fresh tomatoes, and coffee for the next morning. Located about 20 minutes from Bergerac in the country, this home-away-from home is located close to major grocery stores, lots of hiking trails (extensive maps of places to see and explore are provided), and loads of old chateaux and vineyards (for those who love wine). The house (a renovated barn dated from the mid 1700's) is in immaculate condition, very clean and comfortable in every regard. The pool, although the weather was a little cool this time of year, looked very inviting, and the flowers and garden were a delight. All in all, this rental could not have been better!! A very relaxing visit. Thanks Jill and Marie-Helene. Hope to see you next year!. Best always, Joanne and Dick.
