So, after one year of planning, our holiday has come and gone, but what an amazing time our entire family had at the beautiful Mulberry Tree Villa. The villa and the Dordogne region exceeded all of our expectations. We knew we were in for a treat before we arrived having corresponded by phone and email with Linda, who was incredibly helpful. She answered every inquiry and helped us a great deal with the planning of our trip. The Dordogne is a "must see" area of France if you have never been. We went canoeing down the famous Dordogne river, hiked, cycled, and visited Chateau Beynac, Marqueyssac Gardens, and Font de Gaume caves, just to name a few......... Linda helped us plan our daily outings, and had amazing tips and suggestions, which were very welcomed. The location of the villa is outstanding, beautiful, and tranquil. The villa inside has every amenity and item that you can think of, just like being in your own home. The kitchen is a chef’s dream, including all the spices needed to prepare lovely meals. We enjoyed most of our meals outside on the two beautiful patios overlooking the lovely gardens and countryside, but inside there is a big and beautiful dining area too. The bedrooms were very spacious, beautifully decorated, and have super comfortable mattresses. We all agreed, we slept better at the villa, than we do in our beds at home. The two living rooms gave everyone plenty of space to spread out and enjoy our evenings, either playing games or watching English speaking channels on the TV, or watching one of the many DVD's that Linda & George provide for your entertainment. The property is beautifully manicured and well maintained. There are so many lovely places to sit and relax among the flowers and trees. The heated swimming pool was a special treat, along with the Jacuzzi to be enjoyed after a wonderful day of sightseeing. One thing that is not to be missed is a night with Dimitri the French chef. It was one of the most incredible meals I have ever had the pleasure to enjoy. So make sure you talk to Linda and make a reservation well in advance. What a wonderful week, we could have not have asked for more, except that we wish we could have stayed longer. We felt so welcomed, comfortable and relaxed, and of course we didn’t want to leave! Most of all we will miss the gracious hospitality of our hosts, Linda and George. Thank you for finding and sharing your beautiful Mulberry Tree Villa with us, and we hope to return one day soon!!
