Very pleasanty surprised at the style and quality of the accommodation and the quiet country location that was central to many of the desirable locations in the Dordogne area. Keith and Lindsay were the perfect hosts available with help and advice when needed but not intruding when not required. Very nice and very French welcome pack of food/drink was left for us on arrival and we were offered use of a barbecue, free boules and badminton. Keith gave us the option of fishing on his private lake with equipment available for hire.
The gite was very well equipped with Sky Tv, dvd, cd player and board games. The kitchen with full gas cooker kettle toaster microwave fridge freezer and all necessary utensils. The bathroom with very good shower and all towels. The bedrooms with comfortable beds plenty of storage and quality bed linen....and all immaculately clean.
Thanks Keith and Lindsay if you're unlucky you may well get us back again!
