    We really enjoyed our holiday at La Vignasse with our three little girls – the house is full of character and lies in a beautiful country setting. We loved eating al fresco, sunning ourselves by the pool and shopping in the local markets – bliss! We had a great trip out to the dinosaur park where the kids also got to go climbing. Highlights were also exploring the local caves and eating out in the evening in the town square. We would all love to return soon!

    Our day trip to Cahors was most enjoyable. A historic city enclosed in a beautiful bend of the river Lot, and off the busiest tourist trail. Fantastic medieval bridge (lile a film set, with towers and turrets). We explored the merchants’ quarter, the cathedral, and discovered the ‘hidden gardens’ in the old city and along the river bank. And the local wine – very dark and rich – is not to be missed!

    Had a marvellous time. House itself in the heart of the countryside (nb: some great wildlife to be seen) was really comfortable. Especially enjoyed dining outside in the evenings and cooling off using the pool during the day. Lots to do in area, we especially liked the river canoeing (with picnic in boat). Great local market villages to stock up with and sample the local delicacies. Sorry to leave.

    What a fantastic Easter week in La Vignasse. The house is very comfortable with plenty of space for children to run around in and, in our case, attach themselves to the very popular snooker table. Fabulous beds, too. As for things to do, where to begin? We mounted a wine-buying raid on St Emilion and Monbazillac which was a real treat and a journey across splendid countryside. The medieval castle at Beynac is unmissable. A trip to Rocamadour in Lot was also great fun for those who like their towns vertiginous and built into a sheer rockface. Nearer to home, the six-mile circular walk Boucle de Bouillac – marked at the bottom of the drive on a wooden sign by the crossroads – is highly recommended, giving a wonderful sense of this varied and beautiful landscape dotted with tiny farms and homesteads. Just down the road, Belves is yet another of the many charming Dordogne market towns. And finally, for those who like their gardens, Les Jardins du Manoir d’Eyrignac, which calls itself the most beautiful garden in the Perigord, is an absolute joy. The only disappointment we had – and this was serious – was leaving.

    Wij beleefden met de familie een heerlijke ontspannende week in La Vignasse, een plaats en een omgeving die goede indrukken nalieten. Deze boerderij is met een fijn oog voor details opgeknapt en buitengewoon geschikt voor onze familie van 8 personen. Wij genoten, samen, ter plaatse en op cultuur historische plaatsen. De plaats leende zich ook voor privacy ogenblikken.
    Wij ontvingen bezoek van de heer Sygrove (de beheerder) een attente man met wie wij een goed gesprek hadden.
    Alles verliep zoals afgesproken en wij willen u hiervoor bedanken. Aan vrienden en kennissen zullen wij onze positieve bevindingen meedelen. Wij verlieten het gebouw zoals wij het betraden, netjes en met respect voor het eigendom. Genegen de hartelijke groeten,
    Familie Coppens, Belgie

    It was wonderful to return to this haven of peace and tranquility. The charm of this ancient house is captivating. If you like to get away from a frantic, busy lifestyle for a short break, La Vignasse is the perfect place. Highly recommended.
