The village is a lovely walk along the river bank or 2 minutes by car for your daily baguette. There is also a butcher, small grocery store with a tabac/cafe and an excellent restaurant.

Large supermarkets are about 5 K distant.

There is fantastic walking and cycling, tennis at the local chateau, canoeing and thousands of castle steps to climb!

We would love to have you visit.

We have had a wonderful holiday in this lovely comfy gite - it truly is a home from home. Comfortable sofas and beds with good quality linens, great shower, a fantastic meal on arrival plus all the other little touches which make this such a perfect place. We have never been in a more well appointed holiday home....................

Dear George, Sue and Lucy

Thank you for a lovely week

It has been a real joy staying in such a gorgeous part of the Dordogne and in your beautiful cottage. We found it so homely and full of character


We have enjoyed exploring the area, there is so much to do.

Some of our highlights were - the food festival onThursday evenings,

everything at St Leon Sur Vezere and of course the kids loved swimming at the Commanderie Hotel, many thanks to Madame Roux.

We would love to come back again it is such a special place

Just to say it has been a lovely holiday, lovely gite, lovely place.

We have enjoyed every day and so much more to see and I know we will be back.

The fishing was a bonus and the weather was so great, you must all be so proud of this lovely place.

5-Star rating from us

Thank you again.

P.S. We pushed the boat out last night and went to the Chateau Fleunie - Wow!!! - Beautiful setting and fabulous food.

Highly recommend it.
