We stayed here for 3 days in July and wished we had booked for longer; we did not want to leave. We felt welcomed, looked after and relaxed. I felt it was a positive advantage that it was a B&B rather than a hotel, it made the whole atmosphere informal, and as someone else said, you felt you could come and go, sit in the lounge, relax in the pool or sit in the garden as if you were at the house of an old friend. The rooms were beautifully done, making the most of the ancient structure of the building, and everything works as it should (not always the case with B&Bs which are sometimes furnished with left overs that have been well used – not here!). There’s a fridge for use of guests if you want to keep your wine cool for a drink in the evening watching the bats come out. Suzanne has a real eye for taste in decor, and interesting things are all over the place. Breakfast is good – try the fromage frais on the muesli – and the grounds of the Ferme have to be seen to be believed – full of flowers even after weeks of drought. The pool was great, and we used it to full advantage.The village offers a limited number of restaurants, but enough for a week of eating out. Very close to lots of lovely Perigord attractions – don’t miss the Font de Gaume caves at the other end of the village, but book in advance.
I know Mike and Suzanne have a lot of repeat business and it is easy to see why – we also hope to be back.
