Le Chardon was the perfect holiday home for our two week summer break and I would recommend it to others looking in the area.
The owners were extremely helpful in the run up to our stay providing lots of information.
The house itself was very spacious and extremely well equipped. Set into a hill the house offered fantastic views and the pool was the perfect size (and temperature!)
The nearest intermarche was a 5 minute drive away and there was a Boulangerie that you could walk to in ten minutes.
Whilst there we enjoyed two trips to St Emilion, canoeing on the Dordogne, a drive (quite a long one) to Sarlat - an absolute MUST!
A great base for a family holiday.
