"Beautiful and tranquil location. Cottage was idyllic and very well equpped. The owners had thought of everything to make it a pleasant stay. The patio area was lovely as were the surroundings. Cottage was exceptionally clean and very comfortable."
"There is so such to do in the region and Urval is a great base for exploring the Dordogne. We had a great time in this lovely hide away- very peaceful and great for walks through the forest. Very clean and tranquil. Around the cottage itself you can find quietness, all kind of small and bigger animals, so there is something to see every day. We have seen deer and lots of birds. By car you can drive easily to one of the little villages to have a nice meal, a drink on the terrace or visit one of the “brocante” to see if you can find any nice antiques. So if you would like to meet the locals, or some English speaking holiday guests…it’s just a drive around the corner."
