Guestbook comments from the owner
We spent two lovely weeks in this charming house. The accommodation exceeded expectations based on past French rentals; we were greeted with spacious rooms, comfy beds and stacks of fluffy towels. Our arrival was delayed and the owners were thoughtful in leaving us an arrival snack with wine. Jim and Jo are the perfect hosts and discreetly onhand when you need them. They have put a lot of thought into their property and it is well stocked from the kitchen to outdoor living with everything you could think of. There is wildlife in abundance from hummingbird hawkmoths to the daily circle of red kites overhead as you lounge in the sunshine. The pool was great and a good length unlike many you find and well used by all of us. We particularly loved the outdoor walled dining area looking out over the countryside. There is plenty to do from the nearby village of Monflanquin with a great village square lined with restaurants and it's weekly markets, to exploring days out further afield. With two teenage boys we enjoyed canoeing up the river Lot, visiting chateaux, wine tasting, high wire adventure park, underground grotto by boat, feeding wild macaque monkeys, playing tennis, playing golf, eating outdoors with locals at the evening market, self guided village tour, trout fishing and enjoying a 10lb trout on the BBQ and of course the excellent French food and wine. There is something for everyone and I wouldn't hesitate from recommending this property.
