Guest comments about La Maisonnette
"We loved staying at La Maisonnette. The gorgeous stone patio overlooking the river was a great way to spend a morning writing or an evening watching the sunset. We had fires almost every night in the fireplace and cuddled on the couch. We ate the most delicious food. We went for walks in the enchanted woods and down the road to the idyllic country village. It is so peaceful here." - Rebecca E., California, USA
"Just a note of thanks for the wonderful experience we had in your beautiful paradise. The last 3 years have been quite difficult for us and the magic that we had over the last week has been nothing short of a miracle. It is easy to feel your love of your property in all the touches inside and outside. What a fairytale holiday setting in a fairytale house. It ticks all the boxes." - Jerry G., Dublin, Ireland

Guest comments about Le Studio
"Delighted to find Le Studio spacious and comfortable - beautifully designed and everything necessary provided. In the middle of a stunning area of France, many lovely sites and countryside to explore. Rain and Lance proved hospitable and helpful hosts. An amazing two weeks." - Linda and Keith C., Norwich, England
"My sister and I really enjoyed our stay in Le Studio, which was full of character and charm and surprisingly spacious. Our hosts were very friendly and went out of their way to make us feel at home in the area. Their attention to detail sets this property apart from others. The property is located in a beautiful and peaceful area overlooking the Lot River. We were able to relax by the pool, read books, go for long walks and sample the great local food. We only wish we could have stayed another week." - Catherine A., Australia
