The French Countryside

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults enjoyed our 2 week stay in this clean comfortable home in Le Bugue. Visited the great markets in the surrounding area, ventured to Bordeaux, St Emilion (great wines) Bergerac, Sarlat and other villages. Also Beynac medieval castle; Gouffre de Proumeyssac. Bar-b-qued on the patio, sipping wine and visiting with the neighbours, enjoyed breakfast in the clean, spacious kitchen. Easy walk around town. Recommend La Pergola Restaurant (awesome duck confit). Chai Monique for lunch.

Would stay here again without hesitation.

A great base to explore the Dordogne region

  • 4 of 5

Living in the house for a week shopping at the local town market and living across from the river in a typical multi storied, blue shuttered home, made the stay authentic.

Centrally located but a bit more effort required

  • 2 of 5

This is a centrally located house within easy walking distance of the town centre.

Unfortunately there was no Wi Fi available at the property which required a daily visit to the local internet cafe.

Additionally, the TV did not work at all, probably because the TV had not been converted to HD transmission, effective 1 April.

Owner's Response: Hi mark thanks very much for your comments which I have noted. With reference to your comment regarding wifi, the house was never advertised as having wifi and we have always found as you will see from our excellent reviews that our clients prefer to be out enjoying the beautiful sights of the dordogne rather than watching television or having 24hr internet access however I will certainly take your comments on board for the future. Regards Jackie

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Having visited the area before we wanted some where in Le Bugue as a base. We could not have found a better place, the house its self is really nice and has just about every thing your going to need as well as being lovely and clean. Location was fantastic with views of the river and town, perfect.

Booking the house with Jackie was trouble free and every thing went really smoothly.

I would say if your looking for a house in the centre of town with easy access to everything the area has to offer then this is the place for you.

Thanks for a fantastic week..............D & L

Great base for exploring le Perigord

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four adults found Maison de Cingle the perfect base for exploring the many and varied attractions in this area. The house was spacious, comfortable and well-equipped, as well as spotlessly clean. A collection of books and games for all ages added to the homely feeling. Although parking was not always available directly outside the house, there was ample free parking just down the road.

The small market town of Le Bugue is a pleasant two minute walk from the house, and offered all the services we needed during our week's stay in May. Market days are Tuesday, and Saturday. Try the paella!

The owner answered all our queries promptly and her advice on the area was very helpful. There are lots of pamphlets and maps in the house to help you plan your stay.

We wished we could have stayed longer - so much to see and do!

A piece of provincial French living made easy!

  • 5 of 5

Maison de Cingle was a great base to explore the Dordogne including Sarlat-la-Caneda especially on market day, and Beynac-et-Cazenac. This region is so rich in wine and gourmet specialties with excellent nearby restaurants within walking distance of the house.

The property description was accurate and met our expectations and we were extremely satisfied with the location and facilities with nice extra touches. We found a charming village house that was clean, well-maintained, and was fully equipped with everything we needed for our time in Le Bugue. Sitting on the terrace overlooking the river was the usual spot for afternoon drinks and having a chat with the friendly lady next door. She was so nice and didn't mind our efforts at murdering their beautiful language.

Jackie was very helpful before we arrived and provided wonderful suggestions of places to visit as well as plenty of leaflets to go through for planning our trips. The communication while we were travelling was appreciated.

The four of us highly recommend this property and we are planning a return visit. It was great value for money for two couples.

My one tip; Head into nearby Salat, visit the converted church which now functions as a quality food market, and know, a gourmet Heaven waits on the other side of those massive doors.
