We spent a week here in August, there were 11 of us, including 5 children, and the house was perfect for us all. It is superbly laid out, and you can really see the love that has gone into refurbishing the property. It is simply beautiful. The finishing touches were fabulous too. We absolutely loved the house and it had everything we could ever have needed, and much more!
The gardens were gorgeous and the kids absolutely loved the pool. (And the chickens!)
It is located in a beautiful area of France with lots to see and do, we tried to get out and about most days, but by lunchtime the children were all wanting to return to play in the garden and pool.
Although it was very hot whilst we were there, the thick stone walls helped keep the property cool and the mattresses and pillows were super comfy!
Sue and Steve live on site, and were wonderful hosts. They offered advice on days out, and where to eat, let the children collect the eggs in the morning and were at hand should you need anything, but equally kept themselves private and to themselves as well.
We had the best week! We couldn’t recommend a stay here more!
Maison Catalpa did not disappoint, we arrived late in the evening and the owners were there to greet us. The house is beautiful, very clean, well planned and has everything a family of 6 could need. The gardens are beautiful too, well maintained with plenty of toys and activities for busy kids! The pool is very clean and has a safety gate which is much needed with little ones! Having a river at the end of the garden is an added bonus. Local attractions included river beach, and high rope climbing which was a huge hit with our kids.Near by Aubeterre was also a real treat to discover. Definitely be visiting again!!
We have stayed in this beautifull house from 21st to 28th of juli ' 18. Although it was ver hot (up to 36 C) we've slept ver well in the large cool bedrooms. We enjoyed the big garden with all the facilities as table-tennis, badminton, swimming, cycling etc......
Try to visite Aubeterre, Bergerac or Brantôme form sightseeing, shopping or a nice restaurant. And if you love animals hou have to meet Bud!!!

It is a beautiful house. It provides all comforts. super big and clean. The garden is very big. it is ideal for old and young people. Pool and jacuzzi are really nice.
in short, it is a paradise. Our children have fully enjoyed and definitely want to go back to this house.
We stayed here for 10 days, its such a lovely place. Very welcoming, loads of space and beautifully decorated. Steve and Sue were really friendly and told us about loads places to visit and explore. We can't wait to go back again soon.
