We spent a lovely week overlooking the Dordogne, just near the Chateau des Milandes. Although the place is next to the chateau which is always beaming with visitors, it's actually very quiet and private. We are very happy with our stay and the hosts were charming.
We had a wonderful week staying in the Mairie. Two adults and two kids, 8 and 10. The view across the Dordogne is stunning. Watching hot ait balloons take off with a cold glass of wine, bliss. Kids absolutely loved the pool. Everything close by so minimal driving to the sights. House was so pretty and had all we needed. Thanks for an amazing week of peace and tranquility.
Il nous fallait absolument écrire à quel point nous avons apprécié notre séjour aux Milandes. Merci de nous avoir rendu notre premier séjour dans cette propriété facile et sans stress. L’hébergement est excellent !
