This cottage was everything we hoped for - a rustic but well equipped farmhouse in a quiet, remote hamlet, yet just up the road from Bourdeilles, with a choice of good restaurants, and only ten miles down river from the beautiful "island" town of Brantome, again with a choice of nice restaurants.
The gardens, woods, pool and patios, coupled with very decent weather, meant that we didn't feel the need to venture far afield, but the Friday market at Brantome is a must, as is the half day canoe adventure from Brantome to Bourdeilles on the pretty River Dronne. We also visited the fascinating Grotte de Villars with its prehistoric cave paintings. Otherwise, we were more than happy to linger by the pool, take our meals in the shade of the apple tree, and generally unwind.
Local walks and gentle cycle rides in the pretty countryside are also recommended to appreciate the idyllic, rural location of this lovely property.
