What a lovely and pretty place we had a lovely time the house was full of character the children and the dog loved the pool and the garden.
Plazac as really close to some lovely places to visit such as the caves and was very easy to find.
Our only small gripe was the bed in our room was very uncomfortable but this did not distract from a wonderful time we would go back! …
Charming cottage with private pool, stunning views, in the heart of the Dordogne
Beautiful gite & location
We had a wonderful holiday at Le Petit Merly! This petite cottage was a fabulous base for relaxing & exploring the area. The cottage has been carefully designed & has high quality fittings/furniture/linens/crockery/etc. The pool is perfect for hot days & the terrace has beautiful views for relaxing & dining.
We enjoyed lots of walks through the local hamlets & would recommend Saint-Leon-sur-Vézère, Périgueux & Sarlat for days out. The restaurant in nearby Rouffignac serves great food. We even went to two nights at the local village music festival, which was a great taste of French life.
Cheryl & Paul were excellent hosts. They were extremely helpful & available when required but very respectful of our privacy. They made everything as easy as possible for us to enjoy a relaxing break, both leading up to the holiday & while we were at the cottage.
We would highly recommend the cottage & Cheryl & Paul as hosts to anyone looking for a relaxing, comfortable holiday in beautiful surroundings. …
A great place to relax.
The house is spacious, modern and well equipped to cater for the needs of a family on holiday.
The swimming pool was superb. The water was unheated, but far from cold when compared to swimming in the sea around the British Isles, and just what was needed to cool off from time to time. The pool area is beautifully surrounded by flowers and shrubs and is totally secluded making it the perfect place to chill out and relax.
The house is fairly remote and the inevitable morning 'Croissant run' is a ten minute drive to nearby Rouffignac where the Boulangerie is amazing. I could have used the nearest village just a few minutes away but I preferred to drive a little further for the best.
A little further away still, is the small town of Montignac where there are many restaurants, some of which are located in very attractive riverside settings.
We only managed just one week away but arrived home feeling rested and well fed. …
