D'Archiac Studio has a beautiful feel with views of the surrounding hills and mountains. Located a short 500m walk to the village centre yet far enough away to be peaceful.

The studio is downstairs in a residential home with its entrance and outdoor area with a bbq. There is a small kitchenette with a microwave, cooktop and rice cooker.

You are welcome to use the adjacent games room with pool table, table tennis, washing machine and dryer - these are shared with the owners who holiday upstairs.

You can view the stars from directly outside the apartment, cook for yourself or take a short walk down to the numerous restaurants in the village.
