This beautiful old 4-bedroomed house which has been equipped with your comfort and enjoyment in mind, with views all around of fields and small woods, with its terraces and large private fenced swimming pool with swim-machine and fully enclosed garden for your sole use, provides a haven of peace and tranquility in which to relax and enjoy the warm welcome and hospitality of the south west. It's also a great base for exploring the charming nearby villages and historic towns as well as the open countryside. There are many sports and activities on offer if sipping local wine on the terrace while watching the sunset or reading a good holiday novel (we provide a good selection) by the pool don't fill your days. You will be greeted on arrival by a fluent French/English speaker who knows the area well and will be only too happy to provide you with any information you require to ensure you have an enjoyable and relaxing stay.
The library is stocked with hundreds of books and dvds (from Mr Ben to sci-fi and rom-coms), the latter can be enjoyed on the 50" wide-screen tv with surround sound. We also have a wide selection of board games for all ages for some happy shared memories. There are also a few toys for your children, the small rocking horse is a firm favourite!

I would recommend this property to anybody who wants a wonderful holiday. If you want a relaxing holiday with a wonderful floodlit swimming pool, peace and quite then this little gem is perfect. There are lots of places to see in the area like Bergerac and Duras, lots of wine to sample and some supurb scenery The property is set in roiling countryside, very private and the owners Carol-Lynn and Michael are the perfect hosts. Nothing is too much trouble and they both go out of their way to make your stay memorable.
