Lionheart House was a great location for my family. The house itself is in a beautiful hamlet about 5 km from the local market town of Thiviers. The house was built in the mid 1800s and retains many of the features of a period property while still providing travellers with the comforts required by modern living. The local area had a lot of tourist attractions such as caves, chateaux and beautiful towns to keep us busy during the day and the Sky TV channels, books and videos took care of the evenings quite nicely. The local Plan D'eau was absolutely gorgeous for a swim and was not too busy even on the hottest day of the week. more
