"It was the perfect family holiday."

This was the best holiday we have had for a long time;the only holiday after which my husband has wanted to buy the house and live there! We went as three generations of one family : grandparents,three daughters and a son-in-law,a toddler and a baby. We wanted a house we could all comfortably fit into,which would allow us enough space and entertainment on site to not need to go out every day. Riverside Retreat fitted the bill perfectly, and my husband still dreams of living there!

Un séjour très agréable dans une propriété superbe - tout est au rendez-vous, calme, nature, maison spacieuse, confortable , très bien équipée - l'espace et la tranquilité sont les maitres mots - un décor somptueux avec l'accès à la dordogne au fond du jardin, une vraie piscine où les enfants vont et viennent quand ils le désirent - Propriétaire aussi discrete qu'agréable - Le top pour ceux et celles qui veulent passer de vraies vacances -

Merci. C'est un plaisir de savoir que nos locataires ont passé un bon séjour car les vacances c'est important! Famille charmante ayant en plus laissé la location dans un état de propreté exceptionnel!
