Wonderful relaxing week in a beautiful house in peaceful surroundings
This property is as good as any we have enjoyed in France over many years. It has been thoughtfully restored to a beautiful standard and provides spacious and comfortable accommodation. A salt water pool was new to us, but it was always pristine and we were all soon converted from the normal chemical bath type.
We enjoyed the pastoral setting, the open aspect and peaceful surroundings. There were three generations in our family party of seven and there was plenty for us all, from the quiet walk to the nearby chateau, the sporty runs, the darts and table tennis tournaments and the statutory lazing by the pool. One day we will return to do more of the sightseeing we had intended this time!
Our thanks to Fiona and Jean-Marie for their help and being so sociable, they really made us feel at home.
Exceptionally high standard property
This property is really lovely and extremely peaceful. All bathrooms and kitchen are of a high standard. We were a party of 3 generations and Fiona and Jean-Marie could not have been better hosts. They ensured that all our needs were catered for. The pool area was well kept and the salt water pool very refreshing. The weather was superb which meant the upstairs rooms were hot at night otherwise it was perfect! Highly recommended!
Excellent property and hosts
Perfect for our group of 8 adults and 4 children. Lovely location and high end property. 20 minutes from Bergerac Airport and large Supermarket, so no need to bring anything from home to enjoy your stay.
Just as described, a great house and perfect for a large family group.
We have been booking large houses with pools for our extended family holiday,
we now have 3 generation with us and all agree this is the best setup and property location we have booked over the last 20 years.
Lots of space to allow both relaxation and more sporting activities. Its not close to other property but you can walk to the shop but better by car (its uphill on the way back) and we see a new bakery is opening in the village next month.
We will have this property at the top of our list for next year.
What an amazing place......
What an amazing place!
It's very hard to book a villa from a series of pictures and a small blurb. When we booked the villa we knew that it was going to be nice but found it hard to imagine how the pictures all fitted together. Indeed, the pictures do not do this villa justice. It is a lovely light and airy space with high quality finishes and furniture. The shutters helped to keep the villa cool while the tilt and turn windows and the doors allowed air in.
Upon arrival we were met my Jean-Marie who showed as round and told us how to operate the pool alarm. Jean-Marie was also there when we left and throughout our stay Fiona was on hand via text had we needed anything. Fiona also sent accurate directions to find the villa.
We had a fantastic holiday in an amazing place and would go back in a heartbeat!
Unbelievably stunning farmhouse
The farmhouse provides spacious, modern accommodation set in secluded private grounds. We have returned for 3 holidays and have always enjoyed the tranquility this property offers our family. Everything you require for a comfortable family holiday is provided, the grounds allow for the children to play football, cricket and ride their bikes. The saltwater pool is so refreshing and provides hours of entertainment. The only downside to our stay at St.Joseph is that we have to return home to work!!
