As we in the Mercantour are pretty chocker for the season for accommodation and holidays, let me pass you in the direction of Jane and Steve Harman-Hunt, who have found the perfect location in the Dordogne.
Jane and Steve have only been in the area for a handful of years, and we spacebetweeners have not yet been over to visit them (France is just too too big!), but (given that Jane is a Lord at heart) you can be sure of a great welcome.
They are offering 15 % off all holidays at their home the Ridge in May and June 2012...which can't be bad in these stringent times.....
At the Ridge they have a 1 bedroom cottage and a 2 bedroom gite. The area is just perfect for great lower level walking and chilling. If you can drag yourself away from your lounger, there are many beautiful towns and villages to explore locally, and many activities for children.
For bookings in July and August......be quick!
