We booked at the last minute at the end of June 2011 and were offered the Farmhouse. This was lovely: spacious, well equipped and nice rural location yet only 10-15 minutes to the nearest town (Thiviers). The location is perfect: on top of a hill with views all around. Very rural without being too isolated. The pool, which is about 150m from the house and fenced and alarmed, is superb. Good quality tennis court with racquets provided. If anything the property is even better than it looks in the photographs.
Our twin boys (3 1/2) loved it. Plenty of outdoor space. Older children would too (there's a games room with table tennis and pool). Ideal for large groups too as the house is big and there are separate lets on the same site but a couple of hundred metres away. The owners Jeanette and Neil live on site but separately and are on hand to help with any queries. There's a friendly dog.
Lots to do in the area. The picturesque touristic town of Brantome is not far and plenty of Chateaux nearby.
