The caretaker lives down the hill if you need anything.,but otherwise she will leave you in peace.The poolman comes and goes as needed to keep the pool in optimun condition for the health of your famly. he is a professional so , he will be fast and efficient , with his own key for the gates.There is a lock on the pool gate so , it can be useful to keep everyone safe,
A deposit of an unrefundable 30 per cent to be paid to secure booking , then the bal. is to be paid no less than 6 weeks before arrival date when I will give you all necessary details keys etc,Tthe payments will be made by bank to bank transfer in euros ) NOTE, if the bank charges a transfer fee ( some do , some don't ) it remains the clients responsibility .
There is no security deposit required , anything lost or broken , I expect it to be replaced or paid for , just treat my house as you would you own .All linens and towels and utilities are included in the price , pooltowels also, there is a washing machine and clothes line in case you need to freshen up during the week , but you will get fresh linens every Sat , any problems or incidentials don t hesitate to ask ,
The weekly rental prices have been really fairly priced , but, long terms can be negotiated , but with running costs for change overs and pool man and gardeners there is not much room for discounts on the weekly prices, unless there are extenuating circumstances .The Winter months do not include the pool so as a result I can price them low , but have to factor in increased use of utilities ,
Smokers welcome , but please no indoor smoking
Well behaved pets welcome , there is a big garden at the front of the property for a good run
The Aquitaine / Dordogne / Dordogne region
The Dordogne region in the South west of France is still one of the most beautiful unspoilt regions in Europe, from rolling hills with vineyards and sunflowers and fruit and veg. of every description , to flowing rivers where canoeing and fishing and any other water sport can be enjoyed , the markets are the best farmer markets in France with Riberac considered one of the best (10 kms away)Beautiful villages in any direction( Aubeterre just 8kms away one of the prettiest villages in France with the largest monolithic underground church in Europe , with the quaint streets lined with artisan shops ) St Emillion , a medieval village famous world wide for its red wines is situated on a hill overlooking the Dordogne valley .
Les Simons is in the beautiful diverse Dordogne , but on the cusp of the Charante which has distinct countryside of its own , beautiful beaches within less than 2 hours , world famous Royan and La Rochelle just up the autoroute for a different day out with unsurpassed views of the French farming communities .
Bordeaux is less than 2hrs down the auto route , its like a smaller version of Paris ,(great shopping) with its famous Medoc wine area Chateau Margaux and Rothchild to mention just a few , if you are interested in Wines or just curious great day out .
The Riberac / St Paul Lizonne area
Riberac is the closest big town with everything you might need , huge supermarkets , shops , best markets in the areas , and all kinds of leisure activities .It is situated on the river Donne so has all kinds of river activities , there are great restaurants , thai , italian and of course French in all price ranges , we found great choices of food and great service and even if you are dont speak French most people speak a little bit of English and the menus are often translated , no problem ordering .
Down the hill from the house is a little village St Severin 1.5kms with Spar supermarket , restaurant and Boulangerie .
Around the corner on the way into the village is a hotel restaurant owned by a really nice young couple , they have 9 on suite rooms and run one of the best restaurant we have ever eaten in , the chef is English and the food is all fresh and mostly home grown with an excellent choice for the English palate with an French flair.

Loved the place, especially the pool and surrounding area. Very well equiped and comfortable and the way it is managed by Geraldine on the "honour system" I think is great and saves a lot of hassel from people wanting extra money for cleaning, electricity, water etc. which we have encountered in other places we have stayed - you pay one amount and thats it, great !!
Loved the walks around the village, especially following the yellow "boucle" signs and also the meal we had a the Vielle Maison which was excellent.
Helene helped us with the BBQ when we couldn't get it going - quite fun as we speak only a small amount of french and she speaks no english - but we got there with gestures and a few laughs.Missing it totally as we are back home in the rain!!!
