The apartment is ideal for couples, but you are welcome to invite friends back during the day/evening. However, it is not appropriate for parties.
There are guests in the other apartments, and we ask that everyone respects each other's space. Most guests like the peace and quiet.
A lifelong Francophile, I have always wanted to live in France. In 2016, with my French speaking husband Ahm, we bought Maison Pierre D'Or in the beautiful medieval town of Sarlat in the Dordogne. This was a chance to practise my French and to enjoy the French lifestyle. Having the apartments has given us the opportunity to meet lots of wonderful people and to explore this beautiful region. It's a wonderful place with many, many sunny days. Every day is a holiday for us.
