Guest Comments“Having been to this wonderful area about 10 times already, this stay at Passifore has without doubt been the best! Great hosts and service, thank you both very much!” – Dobson family, UK and Netherlands. May 2009.
“This house is so tastefully furnished, it has been a pleasure to stay here. The surrounding area is stunning, overflowing with natural beauty and charm. I will always remember the early morning views of Domme shrouded in mist. For those with children I recommend a visit to the Reserve Zoologique in Calviac as it offers close encounters with a variety of endangered species. The chateau at Beynac offers spectacular views over the river Dordogne and surrounding countryside, and a truly authentic Medieval atmosphere inside.” O’Shea family, Dublin. July 2009.

We were happy just to relax around the lovely pool and Domme is definitely worth a visit.get there early for the market on Thursdays and leave by lunchtime!
