Interaction with Guests
Access to the house will be arranged individually with each guest depending on thier time of arrival. We will send detailed instructions on how to get to the house. It is a 5 minute walk from the tourist office in Rue Gambetta , the main street of Saint Cyprien. Departure by 10h30. You can arrange with the house manager to deposit the key.
The best part about the house is that it is in the middle of the old town, up an alleyway. Therefor there is no parking in front of the house, but in a village square about 40 meters away or in public parking spaces in the town. The main street with restaurants and shops is just 100 meters away.
You need to have a car to explore the region. We have two bicycles at the house.

We want you to leave the house in good order and clean. Dispose of the rubbish before departure. If any breakages occur, please replace with a similar item or inform the house manager and pay for replacement.
La casa es muy bonita, y esta muy cuidada. Tiene un aire romantico y frances y resulta acogedora.

La localizacion es muy buena para descubrir toda la zona de la dordogne.
We really liked staying at Linde's house. It was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. We had a great holiday and Linde went out of her way to make sure it went well. The town is nice and there was so much to do and see nearby.
1 bedroom cottage. Lounge was damp and dark. Kitchen ok, oven, stove, microwave and coffee perculator all working. Upstairs bedroom is large, comfortable bed. Nice little village. Market on Sunday. Went cycling around nearby villages. Used hire car to visit Sarlat (markets, architecture), ccaves in St Eyzies, vineyards, châteaus, museums. Enjoyed our stay.
La maison de Linde est tout à fait conforme à l'annonce. Nous avons apprécié notre séjour et particulièrement le fait d'être en plein coeur du charmant village de St Cyprien et à seulement quelques kilomètres des plus beaux lieux de la Dordogne.
La maison est relativement sombre, humide et sentait un peu le renfermé, en revanche, la petite terrasse et la chambre sont très agréables et la cuisine est toute équipée.
Nous avons vraiment apprécié le calme de notre séjour.
We have really enjoyed our stay in this charming little house. The location was perfect: quiet in a lovely historic village: we could get some rest between our visits in the Dordogne Valley.
Moreover the house and the equipment was very useful: we had everything we need. We felt just like home !
Thank you very much for our stay, we will recommend you for sure to our friends and families.
