Interaction with Guests
I usually interact with my guests in the way they want : enjoying some conversation or just answers to some needs or questions. By meeting in the surroundings or by texts messages.
The house is located in a small hamlet with 4 houses of which this one, ours and 2 other neighbors.
The environment is usualy very quiet and peaceful.
You will need a car to access the house, to visit the touristic places around and for food shopping.
Other Things to Note
There is a bakery / small grocery in the village at about 10 mn by car or 25mn by walk.
In another next charming village (10 mn), you will find 3 restaurants and a grocery.
In the next city, Montignac at about 20 mn by car, you will find shops, an open market on wednesday and saturday and a supermarket.
Far from the cities, we can just get the Internet by a mobile phone connection 3G or 3G+. If you are not equipped yet, I can provide you a 3G Wifi key with 1 Go of data. You will be able to get your emails or access to information pages. If you need more, it is more interesting to get an international extension to your own mobile connection or you can buy a Orange Mobicard at the supermarket.
Do as you would do at your friend's. Leave the house tidy and fairly clean. If something has been damaged or need to be fixed, report this to me before your departure. Thank you!
