Excellent property for large family groups
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Fantastic property in a small village. Owners were amazing and helpful and it was a great location to base yourself to explore this region. The night market was brilliant and could be walked to from the property and we would certainly return with the family again.

Fabulous modern home with lots of space, comfortable beds, wonderful views, hot tub and pool!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Just brilliant! A great space to spend time with friends and family. Clearly loved by the owners and now by us- we will be back!

Ian & Katie T. April 2018

Excellent property
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This is an excellent property, accurately described in the listing, all equipment and furnishings of a very high standard. The friendliness and support given by the owners on arrival and throughout our stay was greatly appreciated. There was a problem with the hot tub which was remedied immediately, but apart from that, we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The village is quiet, yet there is a Sunday morning market, several opportunities for wine tasting and the local restaurant, La Maison Vari, is delightful. The pool, hot tub, BBQ and garden are so lovely, however, that one is reluctant to venture out. Having said that, old Bergerac and surrounding towns and villages are well worth visiting for their medieval architecture.

Fantastic Modern House in a Great Location
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We were met by the owners (Cyril & Vanessa) at the property, they showed us around and explained how to use all the facilities. This is required as the house is very new with state of the art equipment levels including remote controlled blinds and windows, a hot tub, and modern kitchen.
The house is extremely well designed with plenty of space inside and out. It was spotless when we arrived and as it is almost brand new well maintained.
They suggested that on Sunday we should go to a nearby town (Issigeac) where there is a market. It was huge so be prepared to park on the approach roads. Loads of local produce with stalls occupying nearly the entire village.
In the Summer Monbazillac has an evening market one night a week as do many of the surrounding towns. This is well worth a visit, lots of food, wine, trestle tables and friendly people.
Cyril suggested going for a wine tasting at the vineyard you can see in the pictures, this was fun and not at all daunting as some of the chateau visits can be. There was no pressure to buy and certainly no pressure to purchase the more expensive wines.
It is worth keeping a look out for special events, we went to a local producers night at a vineyard in the village, similar to the night market, again with local food and lots of wine, sat at trestle tables amongst the vines.
We found it a good base for the beautiful area and will certainly consider a return visit. There is a huge amount to see and do, and we only scratched the surface.
