Some comments from guests
"What made the week were completely off the cooking of Marlene. Exquisite dinner every night. A taste of local cuisine and beautiful products that made our holiday really added a new dimension! "

"A pleasant surprise was that Marleen can cook delicious and can provide a fantastic afternoon tea. Here we have only leveled twice using. Real holiday! "

The unspoiled nature provides a paradise for hikers and bikers. Not for nothing is there from Génis twice a year, in spring and autumn, a walking and cycling event organized. There are long-distance hiking trails (Grand Randonnées such GR646) and many walking trails. These go alternately through forests, meadows and along streams. You can wander for hours here without meeting anyone. Along the way you will be surprised by the many animals that can live undisturbed.

Around Genis are many picturesque villages such as Excideuil and Hautefort with its elegant and majestic castle. The many villages with their typical houses of stone (original stone) to make attractive. Both the front and high season there are weekly antique markets and vide grenier.

Within a half hour away is the center of the truffles, the town Sorges with his Écomusée de la Truffe. You can visit the famous caves of Lascaux, near the bustling town of Montignac, or at the tourist attraction of Sarlat.

The cozy authentic capital of the Dordogne, Périgueux, is three minutes away. This lovely medieval town has fine-Roman remains. A walk through the Old Town (pedestrian), guides you through ancient streets and alleys. Totally worth it to see the cathedral Saint-Front (architect of the Basilique du Sacre-Coeur), the Roman Tour Vesonne and the Church of St. Etienne de la Cité.

Marleen and Arno have a few years ago decided to live in the north of the Dordogne. The natural unspoilt beauty and tranquility of nature and the numerous opportunities for sports and leisure activities appealed to us directly enormously. What a great environment! The village Genis is within walking distance; there is a bakery, butcher, grocer and terrace.

French and Miriam (August 9, 2014 to August 16, 2014) rating: 9 Best Marleen and Arno, Many thanks for the hospitality at La Noisette. Fine place, lovely patio, privacy and superlekker eaten. Compliments Marleen! Too bad that we could no longer enjoy, it flies by such a week. It would absolutely be no punishment! With our GPS we walked you marked walks: Hautefort go, Dalon, Pervendoux. The last two trips through many forests, so in hot weather it is delicious! Especially the views are beautiful. We were in Perigueux, where we did the walk. Very cozy, ff get used to all those people after the nature walks where you meet anybody. But this town is very cozy with lots of great cafes! The market in Terrasson-Villedieu is visited; local abundance. Vegetables, fruit, (goat) cheese from everything! We are back "refueled" and look back on a super relaxing week! - - - - - - - - Fam Waeles - van de Velde (from July 12, 2014 until July 19, 2014) rating: 9 We thought it was already a very successful holiday, nice and quiet, nice weather, nice pool, great place for the dog , sat.
