Located in a tranquil village surrounded by unspoiled rolling countryside, this tastefully decorated self-contained apartment, ideal for two people, is set in 3,000 square meters of well-maintained private garden with fruit trees and swimming pool. 7 km from bastide town Castillonnès and 32 km from Bergerac Airport, it's a great place to stay to explore the surrounding areas.

This is the nicest Airbnb we have ever stayed in. The apartment was much bigger than we were expecting and was really nicely furnished with everything we needed. The hosts had thought of everything and it felt really homely. The gardens were huge and we really enjoyed trying some of the home grown plums and raspberries. Bill and Tomoe were very welcoming and easy to get on with. We felt very at ease throughout our stay. They also provided us with really useful information on the local area. Although we didn't get a chance to try out the pool because of the weather, it looked lovely! We would love to return and would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants a taste of the French countryside!

What a hidden little gem. We chose this air bb due to its close proximity to a chateau where a family wedding was taken place. Tomoe and Bill are brilliant host's they provided us with great locally information, very comfortable accommodation and a beautiful tranquil garden. This place is ideal for a peaceful get away from it all break. The local town is a short drive away where you will find everything you need to stock up the fridge. Our only regret is we didn't stay longer. We hope to see you both in the future. Many thanks for your hospitality Tomoe and Bill.

Merci beaucoup Bill et Tomoe pour votre accueil et vos conseils pour visiter les alentours. Nous avons passé une très belle semaine. La piscine etait très bien entretenu. Le jardin et la maison également. Merci pour votre gentillesse.

Response from Tomoe:
Your accuracy feedback is confusing since the wifi was on and being used the whole time you stayed. I can only think perhaps your device(s) were unable to connect with our setup.

Un inaspettato angolo di paradiso. Dalla casa, spaziosissima e corredata veramente di tutto, al giardino curato in ogni minimo particolare (un vero e proprio Eden). Dal frutteto si possono cogliere frutti prelibati da degustare a bordo piscina in totale privacy e relax. Se automuniti è possibile raggiungere posti incantevoli a mezz'ora di distanza e a poco meno di 10 km i servizi indispensabili (market, farmacia, distributore di benzina, lavanderia self service, etc...). I nostri hosts Tomoe e Bill sono stati sempre presenti e molto disponibili: ci hanno dato preziose indicazioni sugli itinerari e sulle esperienze da poter fare in Aquitania e sempre molto discreti. I migliori hosts mai avuti finora tramite questa piattaforma. Di certo un'esperienza indimenticabile per noi, 5 stelle non sono sufficienti ce ne vorrebbero 10! Altamente consigliato. Grazie Tomoe e Bill!!

We hebben genoten in het appartement van Tomoe en Bill! Het appartement is groot en heel smaakvol ingericht. Over de inrichting is duidelijk nagedacht en het hele interieur is van goede kwaliteit. De keuken is heel compleet ingericht, wat hartstikke fijn is als je van koken houdt (zoals ik!). De tuin biedt alle mogelijkheden om te relaxen, zwemmen, zonnen, lezen. Tomoe heeft een hoop kruiden die we mochten gebruiken en we hebben heerlijk gesnoept van de frambozen uit de tuin. De omgeving is mooi en er is een hoop te doen. In de zomermaanden zijn er bijna elke dag wel leuke marktjes in de dorpen in de buurt. Tomoe en Bill gaven ons hier nuttige tips over. Al met al een geslaagde vakantie! We raden het appartement zeker aan en wellicht komen we nog eens terug!

Si vous avez besoin de calme et de sérénité, c'est l'endroit idéal. Un magnifique jardin, des hôtes charmants plein d'attentions et le chant des oiseaux. De plus, la région est riche en possibilités touristiques , sportives et gastronomiques.
