Getting around

A car is essential to get around although many guests enjoy walking to the bottom of the hill for the fresh bakery products, easy going down but a good workout on the way back! The local shopping is on the way to and in the nearby town of St Cyprien 24220. It has a large supermarket and smaller speciality shops, bakery, butcher, wine merchant, fish shop, cheese shop. There are cafes and restaurants in St Cyprien with a good choice of different styles. At the bottom of the hill there is a pizza stall which is open most days

Interaction with guest

I'm available 24/7 for any needs you may have, trip and shopping advice, what's on locally, suggestions, taxi and restaurant bookings..... I'll greet you when you arrive and give you the keys and a house tour to get you settled in. I'll also see you when you leave to get the keys back. The pool and the garden need to be maintained, this can be done at an agreed time to give you maximum privacy. Some guests like me to do this early morning, some prefer when they are out for the day, I'm flexible. It's my aim that you have a relaxing and an enjoyable time so I'll fit in with your requirements. Any issues at all - something broken or not working, accident, whatever, I'm available to resolve all 24/7.

“Fantastic holiday!”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2016

Our holiday to Le Hibou Heureux has been a wonderful experience. We drove from Cherbourg in our 45 year old camper van, stayed one night in Poitiers and then plodded on down to the Dordogne where we were met by Ewen (the owner) at the cottage. Ewen was great. Communication was excellent, queries were quickly answered and nothing was too much trouble for him. Le Hibou Heureux is beautifully secluded with a large garden full of scented flowers, a heated pool, perfect blue skies; absolutely idyllic. The cottage was immaculate and very well equipped. The quirky town of St Cyprien is a short drive away as is the stunning village of Beynac. There is so much to do and see in this beautiful part of France and my teenage kids (15 and 19) really enjoyed our stay too! We will certainly re visit Ewen again, but next time for two weeks.

Owner's reply: Many thanks Nigel Kristina and family. I'm glad you all enjoyed your stay in the villa and very much look forward to seeing you all again next time. Your dogs are also welcome! All the best, Ewen
