The traditional Perigourdine detached property is one of the first properties to be built on the quayside, and has outstanding views of the River Vézère. It has been renovated in 2016 to an extremely high standard.

Everything was as described in the advert, or better. Welcoming and comfortable and a superb location to explore the local village and beyond. The terrace has a view you could never tire of looking directly up river, either catching some sun or barbequing into the evening. Some very good local events are well worth visiting as well as the local shops and restaurants.

Lovely position, right on the river, with beautiful views from the rooms and the two terraces. The house has been restored to be in keeping with the original but also modern and comfortable. The village of Le Bugue is ideally placed for visiting the sights and countryside of the Dordogne and Vezere valleys, and is much less congested and touristy than other possible bases such as Sarlat. We had a great time, and it was good to know that the owners live nearby and so are on hand if there are any problems. Would defiinitely recommend this property to a couple, but think twice if you have mobility difficulties as there are several steps to the terrace, and down to the quayside.

Jackie and David were extremely welcoming and hospitable hosts.
The property was perfect for our needs ,spotless and beautifully decorated
The location was ideal to visit many beautiful villages (we loved Sarlat)and sites and the property itself has a breathtaking view.
Jackie and David recommended many very good restaurants, a particular favourite of ours was Auberge Medieval in Audrix
We would recommend this accommodation to anyone.

The property is in a great location, the view of the river was the best view we have ever had at a rental. It was lovely to see kingfishers and herons. The seating area was a big bonus with views over the river but still private owing to it's raised position.

David, the owner, was very welcoming and the property was well kept and clean. Being English, the English TV was welcome. The owner lives about 10 minutes drive away and offered to come over to sort out anything we needed. There is parking on the quayside in front of the property. There is cracking good creperie at Le Bugue called Creperie L'Abruvoir.

We intend to come back to the area in 2 or 3 years time and will try and stay at this property again.
Things we did and recommend are canoeing along the Dordogne, the superb box gardens of Manoir d'Eyrignac, Christoph caves and further afield the Roman musem at Perigueux.

I would highly recommend this property
