Riverview is a stone built cottage situated on the banks of the river Dordogne with a large back garden that extends down to the river. The rear of the cottage is ideal for relaxing and sitting out with a glass of wine enjoying the tranquil setting and the patio area and BBQ are perfect for a leisurely meal with friends and family on those warm, still summer nights. There is plenty of garden front and rear for games and the solar heated pool is centrally placed above ground. Lockable steps improve safety for young children however the pool is large enough for a cooling dip in the long hot summer days. The front patio with sun beds and shades provides somewhere to relax whilst those young at heart swim or play with outdoor games provided.

Indoors we are continually improving our facilities.. recently we have added a toilet/ cloakroom upstairs. As this is our second home Riverview is furnished with all the equipment and comforts you could possibly need.

Our home provides the perfect accommodation for families and/or friends to relax in a typical French village environment but close enough to local shops and within easy driving access to Bergerac (10 mins) and many other tourist attractions.

The Aquitaine/Dordogne region

The Dordogne region is very popular as a holiday destination as the climate is mild, with long hot summer days. Although the nearest coast is 60 miles away there a wonderful clean rivers throughout the region for all water sports. Fishing throughout the region is varied and excellent and available with the purchase of a regional licence and canoeing in summer is perfect with the rivers of Dordogne and Vezere both shallow and slow flowing, ideal for beginners.

The scenery is diverse ranging from dramatic rock faces with small villages perched on the rocks such as La Roque - Gageac on the way to Domme to the wide open vineyards around Bergerac and the route to Bordeaux through St Emillion. There are also numerous grottos where underground rivers have carved spectacular limestone caverns with evidence of pre-historic settlements and many Chateaux with beautiful gardens.

The pleasant climate makes it an ideal location for family holidays where you can spend leisurely days investigating the local markets overflowing with local produce such as cheese, foie gras , wine and fresh vegetables. The area is famous for walnuts, truffles, duck and goose products most produced on family farms.

"Home from Home"

This holiday home has everything we, as a group of five adults, could wish for easy, comfortable living; the garden (with pool) and river view brings the rating up to a five in our estimation. Gardon… More

"Quiet, relaxing, lovely French property"

We have stayed at this property three times over the last few years. It is in a beautiful rural setting with the River Dordogne flowing at the bottom of the garden. Spacious garden at the front with a swimming pool and a large back garden with stunning views of the river. The property itself is a typical French style with the advantage of all mod cons.Everything was provided for a very comfortable stay. The furniture is in keeping with the style of the house.The hub of the house is the spacious downstairs fully equipped kitchen, dining/ living room which provides a relaxing area. On a sunny day it is great to sit outside around the large circular table, having cooked on the brick built barbeque. Just a short walk away is a local supermarket, boucherie where we were able to purchase essentials. .We would recommend this property and will certainly be returning!
