Many thanks for your kind words. The pool is heated by solar panels, & as you know, we did not enjoy the normal sunny weather that we expect this September.

About the neighborhood
There is just so much to do in summer, it often overwhelms our guests, & they unwind by the swimming pool! Your first Sunday will often be spent visiting the market at ISSIGEAC, a medieval bastide town which is beautiful in its own right, but with the added attraction of a vibrant Sunday Market. The kids will love Castelnaud, perched high over the River Dordogne: It offers the them a medieval war museum. Nearby is my favourite Chateau; Chateau Milandes; The home of Josephine Baker, an American Cabaret artist who adopted a child from each continent. This is where they lived, & the chateau is a museum about her. There is so much that you will not want to miss! – Where to stop! You must visit Domme, & Sarlat. Finally, I nearly forgot! – If you are here in July & August the Marche Nocturnes...
Getting around
To get here by air Bergerac Airport is our closest airport. Brive is also only an hour away. Bordeaux is 2 hours drive. By train: Bergerac is the closest station with car hire available. By car: We are about 8 1/2 hours from Calais. 6 1/2 from St. Malo. A car is essential once here.
