We have run our two cottages in this lovely part of the Dordogne for the last ten seasons. After being in the service industry collectively for 58 years prior to that, we pride ourselves on giving an excellent service and friendly approach to our guests. Many of our guests return year on year as they say they enjoy the ambience, peacefulness, immaculate cleanliness and quality of our properties, all saying they have never found better, and it really is a special place. Many comment on the sparkling pool which is maintained on a daily basis. The fact that we do not accommodate children under 18 allows us to provide Villeroy & Boch china, quality glassware, linen and furnishings, and not having children seems to be what attracted them to us when looking for holiday accommodation.
We recommend many restaurants in the area to our guests, two of which are our favourites; Chez Julien in Paunat is very good with ever changing seasonal menus in a wonderful setting. For something a little bit special we recommend the 'Tapas' lunch at Le Vieux Logis, which is our local Michelin starred restaurant. The 'Tapas' is not as in Spanish tapas; it is small tasters, for each course, of the most heavenly examples of local cuisine. Once you have been to either restaurant you will want to go again!
There are many historical sights close by and lots of little villages you will never tire of wandering around. There is also the rivers Dordogne & Vezere on which you can canoe or if you want to take it easy there are river trips which take you past some wonderful chateaux. Caves and prehistoric man are big here with the National Pre-historic centre at les Eyzies-de-Tayac which is quite spectacular. There is a local market to be found each day with local produce and what could be better than buying a spit roast chicken, potatoes and salad with strawberries for dessert then coming back to one of our cottages for lunch with a lovely bottle of wine, and relaxing in the blissful surroundings......!
