Anne Ventoze

Many thanks for looking after us this last week.
My husband and I stayed in the barn at la Feuillade last week (September) as I had some family business to attend to in the vicinity.
We couldn't have wished for a lovelier base, the building was renovated with exquisite taste and is both very cosy and airy. Being woken up by the sun piercing through the beautiful top floor windows every morning was heavenly. The surrounding nature is charming - wild rabbits fleeing in a jumble of paws and white tails when driving back in the evening and amorous doves flying around the pigeonnier by the swimming pool whilst large white butterflies flutter about the pretty garden. Tony and Sonia were the consummate hosts, making sure we wanted for nothing (wonderful home-made jams, delicious eggs and a picnic blanket and hamper to go and sample some local wine by the river were swiftly provided) and I would most definitely recommend La Feuillade.
In fact it pains me to write a review as I would much rather keep this place to myself :)

Colin and Katrina Mclean

A beautiful area and a very nice cottage. We enjoyed relaxing in the courtyard and by the pool, and many walks down to the river (but no kingfishers!).
Things to see? The gardens at Sardy and at Manoir d'Eyrignac. The Mushroom market at Montpazier was fun , as was the fruit and veg market in Bergerac. Pottering along the back roads, enjoying the scenery and the many villages, was a pleasure.
