Dating from 1889 Les Rives is a stunning riverside farmhouse situated on the banks of the Dordogne River. Surrounded by vineyards, it offers true peace and tranquility. We have restored Les Rives keeping many original features and providing luxury furniture and antiques. There are high quality appliances, sky + television to the sitting room and master bedroom and televisons with dvd players in all bedrooms. There is also a wii and a playstation 3 in the childrens bunk room. For musical entertainment there is a bang and olufsen sound system. Each bed will be made using fine linens, and there are cowshed products stocked in each bathroom. Les Rives also has its own boat with which to explore the Dordogne river. A 15 minute drive brings you to Chateau Vigiers and its superb golf course.

If you can tear yourself away discover the beautiful nearby UNESCO world heritage site of St. Emilion, the cosmopolitan city of Bordeaux and the many picturesque small villages in the area. The famous St Foy la Grande saturday market is a 5 minute drive away where you can stock up on local specialities of duck, foie gras, cheese and wine to cook in the chef designed kitchen. Or swim in the infinity pool overlooking the river. Swim whilst watching the swans glide by....
