Made immediately welcome by Ron & Sylvia, who throughout our stay were friendly and helpful. Great location on the edge of a lovely little town, with private access to good value accommodation. Really fast free wifi (it can matter!) and simple but enjoyable breakfast included. We were attending a wedding at nearby Chateau la Durantie just 8 miles away, and this was the perfect alternative to a busy and less private on-site accommodation. Local hotel serves wonderful good value food, too, and there are also a supermarket, a great hardware superstore and other tourist attractions nearby. If we ever take the plunge and buy a place in France, Excideuil would be high on the list - and Ron & Sylvia would be great neighbours!
