"A quality break"
We visited Acabanes for a short break over the winter and really appreciated a peaceful time in this very well equipped holiday home. We were never bored due to the large plasma, a huge selection of dvd's, the pool table and a large selection of board games. All furniture and fittings were of the highest standard with 4 poster bed and wood burner and well equipped kitchen made this a home from home experience.
Our travel was through Bergerac airport, only 20mins from Acabanes, ........ very convenient.

"something for everyone"
Enjoyed an out of season golfing holiday in March with friends. The golf course was only a ten minute drive from the house. Acabanes was a good choice of holiday rental due to the extensive indoor facilities: pool table, board games, table football and the 50in plasma with hundreds of dvd's. We also enjoyed the infrared sauna and heated outdoor pool. The non golfers used the house bikes for leisurely rides and enjoyed the local wine tasting. A holiday for everyone!

"Luxury in the dordogne"
We stayed at Acabanes in Janary this year. It was cold in the Dordogne during this month but luckily the sunshine came out during the day so we were able to explore the area.
We spent most of our time cycling around the quiet lanes as well as visiting all the nearby old towns. The house is really is a fantastic location for this and what we loved the most was that you hardly saw any cars.
The house lists everything on their website but I did not expect it to actually be so well equipped. I had more equipment at Acabanes than I do in my own house! The fires were also used a lot in the evenings and it made the house very cosy. We also loved playing pool and every evening had a mini-competition.
The rooms were all beautifully decorated and all individual. What was the nicest was the ipod docking stations and the tea and coffee facilities. These are small things but are very special touches.
In terms of restaurants, we would really recommend Tour des Vents near Bergerac. It is on top of the hill overlooking Bergerac and has fantastic views. If you want to go on a Saturday though you will need to phone inadvance, as we couldnt get a booking the first time we tried.
I would really recommend this house, it is luxurious and everything we could have asked for in a holiday. We are hoping to try to return June 2013 and see some more of the area.

Beautifully equipped Villa in great location.We have had several holidays in this luxury holiday home,both in small and large groups,and this house is ideal for both.It is superbly equipped inside and out,with something for everyone of all ages.The pool area is outstanding.
The surrounding area is lovely, with quiet lanes, ideal for cycling and walking.The walks in the surrounding vineyards are also really nice,especially when combined with winetasting ! The little local bastide towns with their markets are another must.
