You’ll feel incredibly welcome here: order a pre-arrival shop, a meal on your first night, freshly-baked bread, a picnic by the river or a Saturday barbecue, Tish and Stu are brilliant at organising a fabulous time for all. They can also point you to local wine shops, a microbrewery or the best places to swim and canoe.
You’ll find a choice of bikes to borrow so set off along the picturesque Dordogne valley, explore St Cyprien or Siorac – both are ancient riverside towns with fantastic medieval buildings, narrow pedestrian streets and good restaurants. Explore bastide villages, châteaux and caves.
Each house has a fenced, lawned and terraced garden with barbecue and shares a big pool and a separate shallow one for children. It’s easy to be sociable here, or even take all three cottages for a reunion. If when the weather isn’t playing you’ll be happy inside with loads of books and DVDs and open fires.
