Mairi and Ren were so welcoming. The accommodation (we stayed in the smaller gite)was generous (we are a family of five with children aged 17,15 and 12), comfortable and immaculate. The setting is truly amazing, lovely space to play and run around, visit the woods and stream, plenty to do for older children,including volleyball, table tennis and pool and helping with bbq The pool area is fantastic situated in a very sunny spot but there are plenty of sun umbrellas and trees around to find shade, relax and read. It's an ideal place to have fun together. We also enjoyed the company of the cockerel cornflakes and his hens, two goats and nightly serenade from the owl. The night sky was beautiful - no light pollution here. We hope to return thanks for a lovely holiday (August 2016)

Can't recommend this enough. Mairi, Ren & Rhona are great hosts who live on site and are around for any help and advise. You can just relax here and enjoy rural France and there are also plenty of places to visit within an hours drive if required. Property was really clean and photos of the gardens etc do not give it justice.My 3 children all loved the swimming pool, ping pong and pool tables. Brantone is worth a visit as this is known and the Venice of the Dordogne region. Also Oradour-Sur-Glane is about an hour away and a great chilling reminder of the horrors of the 2nd world war.
