"Fantastic for adults and children…"
Just returned from 2 weeks in the Dordogne. The villa is an old farm house- rustic, roomy and very private.
The villa has a private pool- only ever overlooked by ponies in the field, visiting hens and Buddy the dog. Satellite TV with all English channels- heaven for early mornings.
Every morning the children rode- the owner is qualified with BHS and is of a very high standard. The two older ones were jumping, cross country and dressage; the youngest is 5 and by the end of the holiday she was off lead rein and doing rising trot.
Every evening the youngest would help the owner's husband search for the hens' eggs.
It truly is a magical place amongst the vines, 10 minutes drive to airport and Bergerac; 20 minutes to top vineyards. 30 minutes drive to canoe/kayaking in Dordogne for 3 years upwards.
If you are looking for a relaxing/active holiday then this is it. If your children love ponies then they will be in heaven. My two oldest are going back next Summer to stay with the owner in their house and polish up their French. I could not rate the holiday any higher. Just perfect.Read moreLess
