Here are a few visitor comments...
The photos don't do it justice. Very relaxing and everything you could possibly need. Lovely Madame Sudret encouraged us to eat the grapes on the vines and left us delicious tomatoes. Thank you. Just what we needed before returning to the rat race. September 2011
This house was amazing. It has brilliant views and we enjoyed the towns around. The house is great and it was nice to walk into a cool air-conditioned house after being in the sun all day. August 2010
The description was very accurate - the property has wonderful views, is extremely well equipped, clean and well maintained. The owner is very helpful and efficient. It is perfectly situated for exploring towns such as Ribérac (fantastic market) and Périgueux (lovely old quarters). Aubeterre is a lovely village close by with a sandy beach and river to swim in, there is also a lovely lake with beach nearby. There are several caves to visit too which we enjoyed. I would certainly recommend this property to friends and family. August 2010
Our second time here and we had a brilliant holiday. The weather was fantastic and we had a really relaxing time. Didn't want it to end. July 2011
The first thing that strikes you about Les Hortensias is the truly spectacular all-embracing rural view. If you want to 'chill out' this is the place to be. The house is deceptively spacious - the exterior photo does not do it justice. The kitchen is exceptionally well-equipped - no need to take anything with you at all. The sitting room has satellite television which was vital for the well-being of our sons during the World Cup! In the bedrooms there are comfy beds and squashy pillows and good-sized wardrobes. The weather was scorching and the good-sized pool was much used by all of us. We also had many happy meals outside on the terrace under the pergola. Everything is wonderfully tended here. Ribérac is a short drive away for shopping at the superstore or market and Bergerac airport just an hour for those who wish to fly. There are plenty of places to visit nearby such as Aubeterre and Brantome. All in all a wonderful place to holiday - this is somewhere a bit special. We will be back! June 2010
Thank you for such a beautiful house - so well appointed - and for the wonderful views. Like all before we have just got to return. September 2008
