“peaceful and relaxing”
Reviewed 25 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had a wonderful two weeks in L'Hermite. It was so peaceful and relaxing, just what we needed to unwind. The weather was perfect, sunshine and blue skies every day. We spent most days sipping the local wine sitting under the apple tree and reading our books. The Wi-Fi signal was strong, so the teenagers were happy too!

Thank you very much for your review. I must have misted it before and I admit my respons comes much to late. I am sorry for this.
Where we have the focus on making an unwinding and reflecting period possible, there was a time -long time back- we avoided WIFI and even internet. But the first group teenagers tought us they cannot relax without. Therefor we tried our best to get a stable system. Not easy in rural France, but finaly we succeeded.

“Wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 15 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We spent a delightful week here. The house was comfortable, nicely kept, quaint, and had a wonderful equipped kitchen. It is about 2 km away from the small town of Thenon it was easy to drive there every morning for fresh baked croissants. It also has a decent supermarket where we could buy everything we needed to cook some meals at the house. The town also has a great pizza place, and a decent restaurant.
It was easy driving to all the important caves, beautiful castles on the Dordogne, museums, good restaurants, and a vast number of places to get both foie gras and good wine.
The property manager-Antoine-was readily available and very helpful. I can recommend this vacation property wholeheartedly.

You were very lucky this week was left, because the indian summer in this surrounding attracts many. But -like you imagined - the atmosphere at the location doesn't stick to seasons. I look forward to welcome you again.

I am very happy you enjoyed your stay. I agree, the peaceful and quiet place is a balm for body and soul. It will be my pleasure as well to welcome again. You know you can rent one of the other two cottages as well when you might think of bringing the rest of your family next time?

Because I never will get an aword for my digital knowledge, it took a while before I knew how to respond. So I know it is somewhat late but I want to thank you for your review. All comments help to improve the house and service.
