We're going back for our third time to La Carriere. The owner David makes you feel right at home. We cancelled a second week we had booked elsewhere and stayed at Lacarriere another week. It is a fantastic base to get to see all the local sites in the Dordogne and Lot. We loved the area so much we even talk of moving there ourselves. I never had any interest in going on holiday to France but my stay at Lacarriere made me fall in love with France and the Dordogne/Lot. So relaxing that its the only place Ive been able to completely switch off. I can't say enough about Davids hospitality. The only reason I cant say anything about its child friendliness is because we dont have kids. I would imagine they would love the donkeys though. i can really recommend Davids enchanting tour where he guides you to all the local sites and restaurants(he drives so you can drink). It gives you a great feel for the area. Youll then want to discover the area for yourself.
