“FABULOUS VILLLA IN A STUNNING LOCATION”
Reviewed 10 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

people found this review helpful

We stayed in the villa in August 2013 for a week on our way down through France and onwards to Spain. When we made our reservation, we relied on other reviews on various websites as such reviews are often the only measure of what a place such as this may, or may not be like. As we drove in to Thenac on a truly glorious day, we played the game with our boys as to who would see the villa first. Of course, they won! There it was, nestled in a beautiful open area with glorious views all around: - we thought that we had hit the jack pot after a long drive form Orleans.

And the vila itself does not disappoint in any particular. By the way, I thought the welcome package was a nice touch. It shouldn't really be regarded as a holiday home - more of someones home you are allowed full access to and use of during your stay. I swear it's better equipped than my own home as it has every conceivable extra/appliance in it. It was clean, beautifully equipped in a cosy, traditional fashion and very spacious indeed. We didn't use the upstairs bedroom or lounge but we gathered together in the family room on the evenings we stayed in.

The good sized pool kept Josh and Ben occupied for hours (and we enjoyed relaxing in it too, if the truth be known!). Strangely enough, it was the table tennis table they used most of all, though.

There is ample literature in the house to guide you to all the various places to visit and things to do, but you must try the Sunday morning market at Soumensac, because that is just a lovely way to spend a morning/early afternoon nibbling food and sampling the local wine.

We had a wonderful time there and will undoubtedly return to explore even further afield. One thing I would say is, if you take a trip to Sarlat in August, be prepared for quite unbelievable traffic and delays!

One final point: - I'm not a great SatNav fan but it's an absolute godsend for getting around. When we came back from Sancerre, the route through country lanes it directed us on was absolutely breathtaking with hardly any other traffic in sight.

Visit Fongrive Haut - you will not regret moment of the experience. We didn't.
