From the moment you arrive it is clear that Maison Chambon is special. From the eclectic mix of furnishings to the diverse and interesting paintings and drawings that cover the walls, Maison Chambon is a charming, peaceful hideaway nestled in one of the most beautiful areas of France that I have visited. The house had everything we needed for a wonderfully relaxing holiday and the unobtrusive but ever so helpful house keeper Fiona was the icing on the cake. The area around the house is breathtakingly beautiful with its quaint medieval villages, meandering rivers and walnut trees. We were lucky enough to be visited in the garden by Hoopoe's and Cuckoos and each morning as I breakfasted by the pool I was honoured with an aerial display from a group of Buzzards! If you wish to you.can find something to entertain you every day in this area and Rocmadour and Sarlat are both within easy reach and offer different but interesting days out. For me though the highlight of this holiday has been the house, it's beautiful gardens and the pool. My only wish is that the house was for sale! We will most certainly be coming again and I wholeheartedly recommend this property as a wonderful holiday destination. Thank you Miranda for sharing your beautiful home with us.
