We are an Israeli family of 2 parents and 2 daughters, aged 8.5 and 5.5.
We spent four nights of our vacation in France in August 2012 at "Les
Charmes de Carlucet". From the very first moment we noticed the high efforts
of the owners, Helen and Eric Edgar, to make our stay as comfortable and
enjoyable as possible. This included among other things an excellent and
fresh breakfast, clean, air conditioned and very spacious room, and a quite
large, heated and also clean pool (both precious assets during the hot
summer afternoons of the Dordogne valley). Eric and Helen were very helpful
not only in giving advice and recommendations for planning our day but also
actively calling themselves and making reservations for the local
attractions and restaurants. When we found out that we were supposed bring
our own towels for the pool which we didn't, Helen gave us some additional
towels without thinking twice. This is one of many examples for the Edgars'
warm and caring hospitality. The family pets contributed as well to our
stay: Every morning when we came down for breakfast and whenever we came back
to the premises of "Les Charmes" we received a warm welcome by Filou, the
charming golden retriever dog, which our daughters got very attached to, as
well as to the family cat, Marou.
We also enjoyed very much our evening strolls under the star lighted sky
from The neighboring Irish pub-restaurant, "The black duck" (which we will
recommend separately), back to our room.
The house has also a role in Jewish history, as it turns out that two
families were hiding in the attic from the Nazis during the Holocaust.
According to Eric they managed to survive and one of their descendants is
now a famous singer in France.
"Les Charmes de Carlucet" is located in a very quiet countryside
environment, and yet quite central in the Dordogne valley. We highly
recommend it and surely will be looking forward to stay in it again the next
time we visit the area.
