Interaction with Guests
We have a manager nearby who is available for any questions or concerns.
Where to begin! The area is called the "Land of 1001 Chateaux" and there might be just a few more than that. The house is in a perfect position in the small picturesque town of Vitrac while only 6km outside of the bustling medieval town of Sarlat. I can't say enough about the beauty and tranquility of the area. You have to take a canoe or kayak ride down the river, within walking distance from the house!
Parking is included. We are out in the country so a car is necessary unless you are a bike enthusiast.
There is a $75 euro cleaning deposit. Please take all trash to the bins and leave towels washed and clean. Load dishwasher and leave kitchen free of dirty dishes. Also, empty fridge.
Un très agréable séjour dans une jolie maison tout à fait adaptée à notre séjour. Nous recommandons la maison de Cynthia avec plaisir !
Oh what a magnificent and truly beautiful home for our week's holiday in the Dordogne Valley. Cynthia, our host, was an outstanding communicator - before during and after our stay, and Cynthia's agent Steve was close by, available and so helpful. Cynthia's villa is near Vitrac, close to medieval Sarlat. It was the most relaxing, comfortable, spacious and well thought out villa you could ever imagine. Only two of us stayed, but this villa could comfortably house a much bigger family. We arrived stressed and tired from our first car journey in France (driving on opposite side of road for the first time) and left a week later totally refreshed and convinced we must move to France and totally immerse ourselves in the Perigord French way of life. The setting is breathtakingly beautiful with lush gardens, tall oaks and green lawns. Autumn was beautiful and warm; Most days we sat outside in either courtyard, just relishing the sensuous autumn sights, smells and sounds. It was an environment that inspired my partner to compose and play music. The kitchen was spacious and wonderful to prepare fresh foods from nearby markets (we enjoyed lots of local produce like fresh figs, walnuts and hazelnuts, local cheeses and wines, duck eggs, fresh fish... oh, we probably ate too much... ) We slept really well, our bedroom was elegant and beautiful, and the bed was good for us. Bathrooms and all amenities were comfortable and easy to use. We were surrounded by much artwork including beautiful photos. What an inspiring place in which to just be, or write and draw, and relish the time to contemplate and thoroughly enjoy this amazing life.
The house was beautiful as was the setting. It was "move in" ready when we arrived, all household instructions were in plain view as well as suggestions of what to see and do.The location is perfect for exploring the Dordogne Valley. All in all a lovely, peaceful place to spend a vacation. Cynthia was quick to respond to any question we had prior to our visit.
Wonderful! Magnifique! Everything for a perfect stay had been thought of and accounted for - not to mention the gorgeous villa and gardens which set us up for 4 tremendous days with our young kids in the dordogne. Superb value for money
This is the email I received from Bindi.
We've arrived- and what an amazing place! We are all thrilled and amazed! Amazed you not keeping this treasure just for yourselves!!
Thank you, it's immaculate and every last thing has been thought of.
My boys are beside themselves with excitement and happiness, don't know if we'll explore very much further- c'est magnifique chez vous!
It was a pleasure, hope you come back real soon. We give ten percent discounts to returning guests.
The villa was a wonderful place in which to base ourselves for our exploration of the Sarlat and wider Dordogne region. Vitrac is a quiet and private spot 'far from the madding crowd' of Sarlat and we were thrilled with the French country style and spaciousness of this beautiful place. We spent many happy hours in the evenings outside on the terrace overlooking the garden and within close proximity of the Dordogne river. The notes that Cynthia has left in the house are very helpful with suggestions for things to do and places not to miss and we really appreciated the quick action taken when we reported a plumbing difficulty. Steve was exceptionally helpful coming to help when needed.
