Just returned from a great two-week family holiday in Nicotiana. We were 10 in number from 13 to 81years. It’s in a beautiful location in the Dordogne and within reach of so many historical attractions. We got to visit caves, chateaux, local markets, lovely towns and villages, enjoyed a 16 kilometre canoe run down the Dordogne, and great walks and cycle runs. We cooked in and ate out as the mood took us. The accommodation has been well developed and the warm welcome extended to us by Bob and Megan could not have been better. The 9 of us who arrived on the evening of the first day greatly appreciated the welcome pack and excellent meal provided by Megan. And her lemon drizzle cake is just superb – didn’t last long with our lot! Bob and Megan were always on hand to offer advice and were most generous in allowing us to remain (free of charge) for two extra days necessitated by illness. A great family holiday that will live long in our memories.

Canoeing on the Dordogne is brilliant very safe . Coffee shops / bars they are all good . If you are looking for a location for cycling this is it , great roads almost no pot holes , drivers are pretty much all cyclists friendly , we visited some amazing places all by bike 🚴. Thanks again Bob 10 out of 10 .

Enjoyed 10 days here in September with three small dogs and had a lovely time. The welcome pack was fantastic as was the decision to have a meal upon arrival, simply divine and highly recommend. Bob and Megan made us feel most welcome, as they did our three dogs. Our hosts provided us with all the information about the area we should need and were good enough to share their experiences of moving to France, which we intend to do also. Relaxing location, but within easy drive to many great days out such as Domme and Sarlat. Thanks Bob and Megan for all your time during our stay, I am sure we will see you again

We would like to thank you for your kindness and the nice house you have renovated. We have enjoyed a peaceful holiday with your help. Thank you for the welcome we received and for the welcome gifts. The barn is ideally positioned to visit many sites and we particularly enjoyed the Grottes de Cougnac and the caves at Lascaux and for the swimming in the lake at Grolejac and Quercyland.

Mr & Mrs Logan Jul 2015

Thanks to Megan & Bob for a lovely place to stay, so central to many places of interest. We enjoyed Domme,Rocamadour, Gourdon, canoeing onthe river Dordogne,Sarlat and Cahors and the absolutely beautiful St Cirq Lappopie. Nothing is too much trouble for Bob and between he and Megan have created a lovely home away from home with loads of little details - pinny in the kitchen - the welcome pack surprises - lovely soft towels and the best hair-dryer in the world - no need for straighteners. So, a thoroughly enjoyable holiday and we will definitely be recommending the barn to friends and family.

We will recommend to others and intend to return soon ourselves."
