Full address and directions will be sent to you upon receipt of your deposit and booking form.
Access is easy however with 3 airports nearby and the main motorway to Paris not far either. Bergerac Airport is very small and you get in and out quickly added to which you can get to the house in under half an hour so. Otherwise you have Bordeaux which is an hour and a half away and Toulouse, two hours drive.
You can also get the TGV from Paris and be in Bordeaux in 2 hours. From there you can hire a car or get a train to St Foy la Grande which is 5 minutes away. If you are driving Google maps will give you details but as a rule of thumb:
Calais - 8hr 20 mins
Paris - 5hr 45 mins
Geneva - 6hr 15 min
You will need a car.
If you are arriving late, or just for convenience, and you would like a hamper of local produce: saucisson, hams, croissants, bread, butter, milk, things for breakfast etc do let us know, and this can be organised for a small charge.
There is a large LeClerc hypermarket less than 5 minutes away before you get to the hamlet where you can stock
up with pretty much everything. If this is too overwhelming after your travels there is a smaller but still very good supermarket 10 minutes further south on the main road.
The electricity and water will be switched on for you and if you let us know if you are arriving after dark we will make sure external lights are on.
There is parking for two cars at the entrance to the garden, which is where you will access the house from.
What you can expect, and what we expect
All luxury linen and bath towels are included in the price as is unlimited WiFi, water, gas and electricity and local holiday taxes. (Unfortunately over the winter months I do now have to charge for electricity usage due to previous excessive use. This is now done on a meter reading when you arrive and on departure). Logs for fires are also included should you need them on the cooler autumn evenings. Beds will be made up for you on arrival.
Saturday is the change over day during summer months, arriving after 4pm and leaving by 10 am on the day of departure, although if we can we will accommodate you. At other times of the year we are happy to be flexible depending on bookings so please ask.
During the winter months we can do a minimum of 3 nights stay. We ask you to leave the house clean and tidy, as you found it and if you used the fires and BBQ, please clean them before departure. For bookings of 2 weeks or more, fresh linen and an interim clean can be provided at an extra charge.
I welcome you to my holiday home and hope you enjoy it. However I would also like you to respect if and look after it. Please do not make excessive use of spare linen or the extra laundry will have to be charged against your deposit. Take great care with candles and never leave them unattended. You are not allowed to smoke in the house but you may do so in the garden. I'd be grateful if you used an ashtray though and not the plant pots to dispose of your butts! Please report any breakages and follow the house rules that are in the welcome note you will receive. Otherwise just have fun!
