If there are any bad points it is that we do not have a village shop but have visiting mobile shops, village shops 5 k away
The beautiful setting, house and pool. Very helpful and friendly owners. This was a very relaxing holiday and is a true getaway.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend it to other people. The owners were very thoughtful and kind and on our arrival had left some provisions for us such as bread, beer, wine, cheese, ham and butter, which was very welcome after our journey. They were helpful throughout our stay, advising us on places to visit and so on.
We particularly loved the swimming pool, which was solar heated. There were plenty of outdoor sitting areas with tables and parasols where we could read or enjoy our meals in the sunshine.
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Espedaillac. We are a family with an older daughter of 18 and a younger son of 11. Jean and Frank the owners were delightful, and very helpful in every way. Their farmhouse is beautiful, with a huge amount of character and in a very beautiful situation, very quiet with lovely spacious gardens and fruit trees.
Inside the property was very clean and the kitchen kitted out to a very high standard with every piece of equipment you would want. The pool is large and very clean, our son loved the games room with table tennis badminton and football table. We all loved playing Boules with Jean and Frank and Lissa the dog. In all a lovely holiday and we look forward very much to visit again, thank you Jean and Frank!
