Our guests have often said that the best meal they ate!

Renata & Larry were exceptional hosts and we were happy with everything about our stay - ideal location, sparkling clean cottage, lovely garden, and many thoughtful details. It exceeded our expectations. We consider ourselves lucky to have stayed in this lovely French cottage and to have met our delightful hosts. We highly recommend the cottage, and look forward to returning.
We had a great time at Larry's house. It was quiet and peaceful and a perfect place to recharge mid way into our travels. The market town of Sarlat was a easy drive and there was plenty to do and see in and around the area. The figs and walnuts straight from Larry's trees were an added (and delicious) bonus! Larry himself was a warm and gracious host with a wealth of knowledge about the attractions in his region. Highly recommend a stay there if you are passing his way.
