Wir kommen in 2009 sicher wieder in das schöne Haus in PERN

Comment from D.C. van Bakelen

van een huurder. Beste verhuurder, Afgelopen zomer huurden we met 2 gezinnen het vakantiehuis Pern2. Het was een zeer geslaagde vakantie, en dat had veel te maken met de fijne locatie. Het huis is heel goed onderhouden, en was echt super netjes toen we er aankwamen. De kamers zijn ruim, net als de slaapzolder. Handig ook als je er, zoals wij, met 2 gezinnen logeert, was dat er 2 badkamers zijn! De kamers zijn voorzien van luiken en de keuken van rolluiken, waardoor je het ook binnen lekker fris kan houden. Fijn ook dat er een wasmachine was, zo kon ik grote badhanddoeken en favoriete kleedjes tussendoor eens wassen. Het zwembad 'met springplank' (vooral dat laatste moest ik van man en kinderen even vermelden! de wedstrijden sierduiken waren een waar festijn) zorgde voor de nodige verfrissing! En dat er een overdekt terras is, is zeker ook een meerwaarde. Daardoor was het te allen tijde dragelijk om buiten te zitten en te eten. En dat er ook een ingebouwde bbq op het terras was, vonden wij wel leuk! Naast het zwembad, is er een leuke speelhoek/tuin gemaakt voor de kinderen, met schommels en een trampoline. Gelegen tussen de bomen, dus in de schaduw, ideaal om de warmste uren van de dag door te brengen. De omgeving. Het huis is heel rustig gelegen, dus voor wie de rust zoekt: dit is de plek waar je moet zijn. Keerzijde van deze rust, is dat je wel even onderweg bent naar een bakker en de supermarkt. Goede boodschappenlijstjes maken is de boodschap! en er is een ruime koelkast, met vriesvak, dus dagelijks hoef je nu ook weer niet op pad. Er zijn hele leuke en mooie wandelingen te maken in de omgeving, en voor mensen die graag fietsen, is deze streek zeker ook een aanrader. De dichtste stad, is Castelnau Montratier (8 km) en Cahors (15 km). We gingen er meermaals heen. Er is een toeristische dienst met info over zowat alles wat je in de hele regio kan doen (en dat is heel wat). Maar ook de stad zelf, in het bijzonder het oude stadsgedeelte is de moeite waard ! En ook het pittoreske kunstenaarsdorp Saint-Cirq-Lapopie moet je zeker eens bezoeken. Het is een plaatje! Vriendelijke groet, Bea, België. 2013.
