This is a perfect vacation home! With plenty of room for groups, a fun pool, multiple delightful terraces and fantastic views, a well stocked kitchen, a location in an amazing part of France near canoeing, castles, caves, cliffs and the gastronomical delights of the Perigord, it adds up to a perfectly fun, relaxing and delightful place to stay! There is one caveat: for Americans used to wide roads, rent a car less than 6 feet wide as the statement that the road to the house is narrow is no joke. The house is well worth thinking ahead when renting the car.

This house exceeded expectations and we would without question come back and stay here again. The location is spectacular, in the cliffs just above La Roque-Gageac which itself was a great base for visiting the Dordogne region. The outdoor spaces of the property are especially stunning, with multiple patios and terraces and a great swimming pool. The house itself has plenty of space for larger groups (we were 6 and it could easily have handled more) and has a big and modern kitchen. There is parking in the driveway for at least two or three cars.
It is worth mentioning that, as advertised, this house was built a long time ago and there are a few quirks, like a narrow staircase to the third level and a number of unexpected single steps up and down as one moves through some parts of the house. The walk to and from town is short but with some steep parts, though it is all well paved and has steps on the steepest parts. The last few hundred meters of the drive to the house is along a narrow street, which was not a big deal for us after we’d driven it once or twice. But vehicles wider than 2 meters may not be able to make it all the way up.
That said, none of these were significant for us especially in light of all the positives. The house is spectacular, and we had a fantastic stay here.
