The attractive enclosed garden boasts a splash pool, and the covered terrace is ideal for al-fresco dining.

Cycling can be enjoyed in the surrounding area and there are three bicycles available for guests to use. For a day out, the old town of Périgueux has museums and interesting shops, or visit Poitiers for golf only 45 minutes away, the famous theme park of Futuroscope and La Rochelle 1½ hours away.

More about us

  1. We are Chris and Lyn, a married couple with one teenager. We run our own business and enjoy travelling when we are able to get away. We have not done a home exchange before but are keen to try what sounds a great way to see another country as a resident - and allow someone to see yours. We would expect to arrange an exchange some way in advance in order to get to know our fellow exchangers via email first to see how best we can facilitate their stay in France.
