We chose this cottage because it had two double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. My friend and I are both widows and like our own space. There was a bit of confusion when we arrived as one of the bedrooms had two single beds, but this was rectified the following day. The cottage is ideal for two couples or a small family. The bedrooms are downstairs as are the toilets which was a little “inconvenient “. The cottage is well equipped and is close to Hautefort with it’s impressive castle. The etang de coucou and the restaurant was worth a visit. We had very good weather for the week,with just a little rain on the Friday afternoon. We didn’t see much of Paul and Anita as we wanted a relaxing week ,and didn’t want too many outings, but when we did see them , we found them friendly. The only problem we had during the week was the internet which was not working very well. All in all we would recommend this cottage both for a restful holiday or as a base from which to explore the area.
Set in rural France to the north of the Dordogne, this Manoir is a treasure. Beautifully restored and well equipped, this is the ideal holiday for extended family or for groups of friends. Lovely rooms with great comfort, a stunning garden and a magnificent pool with a pool house and facilities for outdoor cooking. Our hosts Nicholas and Simon were both tremendous fun and always available but they were sensitive to our needs and judged when to join in and when to leave us to ourselves. They live in a small building on site and make sure that everything is working. They even clean the bar-b-que and the planche every morning and make sure that there is a constant supply of cheap but very drinkable wine on hand! Croquet on the lawn, vegetables from the garden - it couldn't be more idyllic. There is lots to do in the area which is largely not full of tourists even in the summer months (a great change from the Dordogne proper which we found busy, crowded and over-rated).The local store is perfect with fresh bread and pain aux raisin and supplies of almost everything. Local visits include Thiviers, Perigeaux and the beautiful villages of Excuiduel and Saint Jean de Cole. Lots of places to eat, castles to visit and gardens to see. Highly, highly recommended
