“Amazing location in the Dordogne for couples”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We enjoyed our week in the picturesque medieval village of Castelnaud. The location was perfect as it was within a short drive of all the major attractions of the dorgogne - most 15 to 30 mins. A few minutes walk uphill from the apartment is the medieval castle of Castelnaud (a must!) and also cafes, gift shops and restaurants. A steep cobblestone footpath behind the church takes you down to the bottom of the village on the bank of the Dordogne river (3 minutes walk) where you'll find the village square with café, restaurant, village shop, bakery, post office and canoe hire. Supermarkets are in nearby villages.
The apartment is beautiful - extremely clean! Bathroom has walk-in shower, basin, toilet, good lighting, exhaust fan and heated towel rail. Kitchen is fully equipped including dish washer. Washing machine on lower level to share with garden apartment.
The twin beds in the loft bedroom are quite firm. There is a pedestal fan which we used every night as the weather was very hot while we were there.
The terrace leads off the kitchen and has a BBQ, table and chairs and umbrella. It overlooks part of the valley and the medieval village towards the church and was perfect for breakfast and glass of wine in the evenings.
We didn't get used to the bells but we did laugh about them - they chime every hour from 7am until 10 pm.
There is no TV, DVD player or stereo, only a small CD player/radio in the kitchen so bring some books to read in the evenings. There are some books and games there - scrabble, monopoly etc. We sat on the terrace every evening watching the hot air balloons drifting over - amazing!
Free parking at the church. We suggest you park near the church and carry luggage up as it is very difficult to turn around at the house.
Overall a beautiful, relaxing place to stay!

“Beautiful location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We stayed here at the end of the season, although it was cold outside it was very cosy snuggling up to the log burner, logs provided by the owners.
The views from the apartment were absolutely stunning, amazing Autumn colours.
A trip down to the first class bakers each morning for bread & croissants. Evening meals could be taken at one of the two restaurants in the square reducing the need to drive.
The apartment is very well equipped and spotlessly clean.
We intend to return in the summer.
