The McAlpines

We had a wonderful time in the cottage. The attention to detail and personal touches make the accomodation a lovely place to relax and enjoy.
Sky tv, dvd players and old school games went down very well with our girls ( 9+5 ) when the "pluie" interrupted the blue skies. WiFi for big people is a real plus too.
Homemade jams (fig is yum) and fresh eggs and delicious raspberries were a real treat. Tony and Sonia were superb hosts who are always on hand with advice, local knowledge (do ask them) and friendly chat.
Our favourite places were Bergerac, Perigueux and Riberac and Dune de Pyla (huge sand dune, 2 hrs drive but stunning).
Our week flew by in this home from home which we are sad to leave.
