A lovely, well equipped chalet in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely relaxing week here with our two children.

The chalet is very well equipped with all modern conveniences. The wood and red decor is homely and the beds are comfortable.

The children loved the pool and running around the big garden - especially feeding the geese.

The local bread van coming twice a week was fun.

The location of the chalet is great for exploring the area - the velorail and snail farm were a big hit with the kids and we also enjoyed Brantome and Perigueux.

The local restaurant - a pleasant walk away through the woods - was very good...and great value for lunch.

The welcome pack and local advice given by Cath were great and much appreciated - Many thanks for our most relaxing holiday since having children.

We stayed here with our 2 children for 2 weeks, and had a lovely, most relaxing holiday. It is much more remote that we expected - in a beautiful area - so it so very peaceful.

the house was fantastic.... everything you could think of, that you could possibly need, was there. every detail was thought of and provided.

the welcome pack is amazing... and it was great not to have to worry about finding a shop nearby as soon as you arrive.

the garden is gated at the side of the house, so i felt it was safe for the kids to keep away from pool. the garden was was huge for the kids to play and they loved the swings.

Cath was a lovely host and we had a very relaxing peaceful holiday. thanks again x

Wonderful holiday in glorious countryside setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly exceptional facility. Cath has thought of absolutely everything and all has been done to the highest standards. Very clean, very well equipped, every mod con available. Cath is a welcoming host, for whom nothing is too much trouble, including getting out of bed and coming to find us on our night of arrival when we were seriously lost! A food pack is provided so that you have all you need until you can get to the shops. It is peaceful, relaxing and comfortable. Who could ask for anything more? We will be back next year!

Perfect for relaxing and watching wildlife.

  • 5 of 5

You could not ask for more from this splendidly equipped accommodation. The rural setting is ideal for quiet relaxation with great views of surrounding countryside and local wildlife on your doorstep! The decking and pool are an added bonus. The owner discreetly ensures you are comfortable and helps with local knowledge. There are many interesting places to visit in the surrounding countryside. I have no hesitation in giving the owner and property a high recommendation.

perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at 9.30pm after a long day traveling. Directions were spot on. Cath met us and told us about local area, plus the welcome pack is one of the best we have ever had, she thought of everything we might need until we were able to shop. This has to be one of the best places we have stayed, all your home comforts but with all the peace and quite you could want. From the large decking you can watch the deer in the evening or chill out in the pool. My daughter loved feeding the geese and chickens with left over bread and veg. There are lovely towns to visit in the area but we only did one full day away as the chalet was so relaxing. We hope to return sometime to recharge our batteries. Thanks Cath.
