A top holiday experience throughout! After a long drive we were all amazed at how perfect La Crouzette is! Better than any of the pictures, our stay here surpassed all our expectations...perfect house, pool, gardens and surroundings. The View of the Castle and surrounding valley is just breath-taking and something we can all appreciate. Everything is close by, although a car is essential for supplies and going further on sight seeing trips. Booking was easy and support/advice was very good (Thank you David!) We definitely want to return here and will soon!
We stayed here in August 2012, there were 4 adults and 3 children aged between 7 and 14. The house is in a great area with lots to do within an hours drive. La Crouzette is a lovely house which is well equipped. On the ground floor there is a double bedroom and laundry room, first floor double bedroom, large dining kitchen, large lounge with fantastic views and separate dining room, shower room (shower and sink) and separate toilet on the second floor there is a double and twin bedroom and a bathroom with bath, toilet and sink. The pool was heaven when we stayed as it was very hot - couldn't get our boys out! We really enjoyed our stay here.

We loved this house! Perfect for families as there is loads of space inside and out especially having its own swimming pool. The house is picture perfect and the views from the garden are stunning. Its also a very private and quiet location not overlooked by any other properties. The house is beautifully decorated and has everything you need to a great stay. A short walk to the bottom of the road there are a couple of restaurants, shop, bakery etc. We would definitely recommend La Crouzette and plan to visit again next year.

We stayed a week in La Crouzette with our two children and it was just wonderful - the pictures are gorgeous but even they do not do it justice. The house is spacious and beautifully furnished, there are flowers blooming all around the house and garden, and the view from every window is amazing - you can see the castle and the village church from one window, and the others look out onto the green valley leading up to the village of Castelnaud. It was so peaceful and quiet here that the only noise we could hear was birds chirping and the church bell ringing on the hour. The house location was so perfect we could have happily stayed a month. Our children absolutely loved the pool and the weather was perfect for swimming - hot and sunny almost the entire week.
The house is located after the turn off for the castle for cars so there is no traffic at all on the road past the house to the village by the castle. You can easily walk up to the castle - it is less than a 2 minute stroll, and there are several restaurants and places to get ice cream and snacks along the way, most with amazing views and outdoor gardens, or you can walk down to the river on the footpath where you can rent canoes, or pick up supplies from the small grocery and bakery. We spent several days without even getting in the car - wading in the river, going canoeing, biking in the beautiful countryside, visiting the castle, and swimming in the pool could fill a whole week. However if you do want to do some sight-seeing, Sarlat, Beynac, La Roque Gageac, the gardens at Marqueyssac, and Milandes chateau are all within a 10-15 drive.
The only negative of staying at La Crouzette is that we did not want to leave - not to visit the long list of beautiful sights in the area, and definitely not when our week was up. We were delighted enough with the sights we could see from the windows and the things we could walk to from the house itself, and the afternoons we spent by the pool followed by dinners outside in the garden were the best part of the entire trip. Of all the many homes we have rented for summer vacation, this was by far the best of the best and we have the most wonderful memories of our stay here.
