“Fantastic situation!”
Reviewed September 19, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This is third time we have stayed at Ortillac in our favourite village in France. The property is ideally located as the village has all the amenities you need for a holiday in rural France. The village of Verteillac is served by a bakery, butcher and the famous Merleud - where one can by anything from a tomato to a cement mixer! The local bars are very good as are the eateries.

Ortillac itself is well appointed with three en-suite double bedrooms and a good little kitchen for when you decide to self cater. There is a t.v. which picks up UK channels although the seating area is pretty small. Outside the pool are is also very good and being west facing is a sun trap all afternoon and evening.

Pierre and Larence are perfect hosts and are entirely unobtrusive, despite living next door. Pierre speaks very good English and can always advise on places to see and things to do.

The only downside in this modern day and age is a lack of wifi and if this could be included in the future then I would raise my 9 out of 10 to a perfect 10.

“Great location”

We stayed for a week with our adult children and their partners.
The house is very spacious upstairs with three good sized bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms. Bedrooms and bathrooms are furnished to a good standard.
Downstairs there is a well equipped kitchen and a dining room. Other reviewers have commented on having a sitting room/lounge area downstairs which I would probably agree with, especially if the weather is not good. Luckily we had great weather and so we spent all of our time outside in the garden by the pool.
The outside area is lovely and very secluded- pool was a little chilly at the beginning of the week but warmed up as the weather got hotter.
The best bit for us was the location which was minutes walk from the lovely village of Verteillac where there is an excellent supermarket, butchers and boulangerie. There are also several bars and restaurants.
We only had two trips out to Brantome and St Emilion- the rest of the time we were happy to relax by the pool and eat/drink in the village.

“Ideal Location and Great Hosts”
Reviewed September 16, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This is the second time we have stayed at Ortillac and once again we had a great time. The owners are on site but are very unobtrusive but at the same time very helpful if needed. The bedrooms are excellent as is the pool area. The one thing I would change would be to turn the dining room into a sitting room, but with great weather and a beautiful pool who wants to be inside.
We know the area very well but it is great o have a property that is located within the village as there are all the amenities you need.

“EXCEEDED ALL OUR EXPECTATIONS”
Reviewed September 3, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Perfect - beautiful house, lovely garden, blissful silence, gem of a pool. All set two minutes walk from the village square, with shops and restaurants for everything you need, including the best croissants we've ever had in France. And the cherry on the gateau? Each bedroom has its own bathroom and lavatory, very relaxing for those of us sensitive about these things!
