Jo Cartwright

What a wonderful week of variety and contrasts! We have travelled through time from pre-history and beautiful cave paintings, to medieval castles, to the home of Josephine Baker, 1920's Folies Bergères dancer, resistance fighter and general philanthropist (Les Milandes).
We've eaten with the truckers at Lou Marmitou and in the cosy decadence of La Tupina (awesome recommendations Tony!)
From the busy streets of Bordeaux to sleepy villages, sunshine to wild thunderstorms, you can't find a much better place for experiencing the spice of life.
La Feuillade was more lovely than we could have imagined from the website- it had everything we needed and made a fantastic base for our expeditions as well as a wonderful retreat when we fancied a day or two of complete relaxation.
There is a real talent in this family for making the perfect holiday experience and giving little touches of delight everywhere you go, from the hand-painted signs to chicken chasing to fabulous advice and recommendations, we really couldn't have asked for more.

We had a wonderful week here! Our cottage was perfect, the gardens sublime but the hospitality was truly a great treat! We wish you all happiness and peace in this little Eden. Thanks for everything!!
