Our 3-generation family spent a week at Les Hirondelles (both the villa and cottage) celebrating several family milestones. This holiday exceeded our already high expectations. Les Hirondelles was perfectly situated for us. It’s a few minutes’ drive to the towns of Les Eyzies and Ste Cyprien. Some of the most incredible cave art is within a few kilometers. All the A-List attractions of the Dordogne were within the radius of a half-hour drive—every bit of it through beautiful countryside. The property is gorgeous, especially when the weather is right for outdoor living. We took all our meals on the patio, surrounded by great beauty and accompanied by bird songs. Even with five energetic kids there was plenty of space for everyone who wanted to be exuberant without disturbing those of us seeking an hour of quiet time. The pool is great. The houses are clean and well-equipped. They accommodated our group comfortably. There are three public areas in the villa, plus a separate kitchen/living room in the cottage. The kitchens had all the equipment and dishes that we needed. We stayed during a record-breaking heat wave, with high temperatures topping out around 40 Celsius. The stone walls kept the interior cool for a couple of days before the heat penetrated. This led to a few uncomfortably warm nights, especially in the upstairs bedrooms. No idea about the comfort level during more seasonable warm spells. The owner/hosts Andy and Uliana live on the premises. They struck the perfect balance between being available and unobtrusive. Our stay was early in their first season running Les Hirondelles. Despite being new at this endeavor they provided all the information we requested. I’m sure their local knowledge will grow steadily. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer. We would have been happy spending more time enjoying Les Hirondelles and the beautiful Dordogne region.
