This detached holiday property is situated in a very attractive and sleepy little hamlet divided in two: Cause has a Romanesque-Byzantine church dating from the end of the eleventh century and Clérans has the imposing ruins of a twelfth-century medieval castle built on Carolingian foundations. In the twelfth century Clérans and Cause were joined as one parish. The attractive ruins are clearly visible from the pool terrace. This is an excellent location from which to explore all that the Dordogne has to offer including the famous wine-producing town of Bergerac on the banks of the River Dordogne. Here you have excellent markets, boat trips, wine museum and many cultural events are held throughout the year. Also worth a visit is the golf course at Château des Merles, 4km, and the market town of Bergerac, 14km. Water sports can be found at Trémolat and the colourful riverside market town of Lalinde, 9km, with shops and supermarket is just a short drive away. The château at Monbazillac is close by and open to the public.

Approximate distance to Bergerac airport is 5 km.

    Unfortunately Chez John ranks as the worst accommodation we’ve holidayed in. Although it is in a lovely location, and the house has its charm; there were some serious health and safety issues with the house. The decked walkways were broken or in danger of imminent collapse at at places - a potential hazard for a broken ankle! A radiator was attached to an old door used as a partition from the fridge. The cooker hobs in the downstairs kitchen didn’t work bar one and the place had not been cleaned propely. The toilet was simply disgusting and there were thick spiders webs and dust everywhere. The barbecue had been left for us to clean out. We found the layout of the accommodation challenging. The bottom apartment is completely separate from the upstairs rooms, accessed by an external staircase, which made it really inconvenient for a family to share the space.
