PLEASE NOTE for bookings in Summer months: Changeover day is strictly SATURDAYS, so we cannot offer midweek arrival or departure days then, sorry! We can be more flexible in the other months. And for Pool Safety, children must be aged 5+ (or little babies in cots welcome). Explore nearby Chateaux: Beynac, Monbazillac, Biron, Milandes, Castelnaud, Fenelon & Puymartin. Minutes to gorgeous listed villages like La Roque Gageac, Domme, Limeuil, Belves, Sarlat, Monflanquin. Amazing caves like Font de Gaume, Lascaux II, Grottes de Maxange or Proumeyssac, or glorious gardens like Marqueyssac & Eyrignac. Walk through the nearby forests of Biron, have a hit of golf, or just unwind on the terrace overlooking beautiful Monpazier as the sun sets. In cooler months, settle before a blazing fire in the ancient stone fireplace rescued from the ruins of a nearby crumbling chateau. For cyclists, bike hire can be arranged via a local professional service, which delivers the bikes to your door! The gatekeeper's cottage, Les Cerisiers, now a cosy couple's retreat, sits 70 metres away, beyond hedges & trees, & shares the rambling gardens. It can be rented separately. You can find info about that here on Tripadvisor too! More photos and info can be found on our own site too. So much to see, do and taste!

Firstly, I think that calling Villa Ste Therese a 'villa' is a bit of an injustice. To my mind it a rather grand house (if not mansion). There were 9 of us and it accommodated us with room to spare with each bedroom having a...More
