What a fantastic home with such a beautiful view of the Vezere!

  • 4 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay in Le Buque. A Charming home with everything you need...except a radio😉�.

Such a great central location to experience the Valley History. From Medieval Castles to Prehistoric CAVES! Every day was a breaking experience! The town has lively little restaurants and great fresh produce at the Tuesday Market! Thanks Keith for quickly resolving our smoke alarm buzzing! Thanks to Jackie for sharing this Quaint French Home!

Gorgeous home in the most quaint village

  • 5 of 5

Jackie's home in Le Bugue was one of our most favorite places during out 3 week stint in France. You should have seen my kids faces as we entered the door of the blue shuttered house - especially after squishing into the small apartment we shared in Paris and Montpellier. The home is enormous with a gorgeous open plan living area and wet room downstairs. Upstairs was a newly refurbished enormous bathroom with another little reading alcove, living area and bedroom. The top floor held 2 bedrooms which we used during our stay. Perhaps the most impressive thing about this property was the gorgeous view of the Le Bugue bridge over the Vezere river in the morning - just incredible! Our first experience of the town was also really pleasant with a visit at the Italian restaurant where the English speaking chef and owner took time out to chat with us and ask us about our trip. The hospitality did not end there, with every restaurant experience a pleasant one - and the penultimate evening being spent listening to a live band and enjoying the local fare at a food market held in the evening (Tuesday nights during summer). This was a very special experience. Le Buge has a heap of things to do for young and old. There is the prehistoric theme park (perhaps a little expensive - so check it out before taking the kids), hiking up to Bernac castle (easy to do with kids - you can drive to the top instead of walking if you prefer) and of course, a river canoe and picnic that we began just before Bernac so we could get in a lot of the sites (finishing at the Bernac castle). We LOVED this area of France - every where you turn is another postcard and we loved Jackie's home - so central and fully equipped. We could not have asked for a better experience. Thanks so much Jackie - you made our trip!

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
