Maison Santolina was a beautiful setting for our visit to the area - stunning views in a very peaceful setting. Convenient to get to from Bergerac Airport - although you certainly need a car in this area. We really enjoyed spending our evenings out on the deck and by the pool. The property itself is really spacious and impeccably prepared for us - thank you to Linda and David for making us so welcome.
