Very Good

“Fantastic! Wheelchair accessible holiday home in perfect settings.”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2013

I cannot recommend this holiday "home from home" highly enough! Being a wheelchair user, access is always a big consideration when booking any accommodation. The friendly and informative contact with the owners assured me that the amenities would be suitable. I was not disappointed! The gîte is comfortable, with all the mod cons that worked well for the whole family. Facilities for myself were everything that was promised. The private pool (also accessible) was a delight. The location is peaceful with an abundance of wildlife, wonderful to just relax! A car is essential to visit the heart of the Dordogne with everything it has to offer within less than an hour's drive. We will be back!
