Renovated Gite with chestnut Pool.Nontron / area Brantome, Dordogne, France.
Great stay at a lovely gite
We had a lovely holiday at Kevin and Andreas gite - the accommodation is comfortable, clean and well equipped. It's in a lovely location and we enjoyed eating and having a little glass of wine while watching the sun going down. The pool area is great to relax at and take in the views of the surrounding countryside. There is plenty to see and do around the area and would highly recommend staying here. Thanks for your top tips and making us feel welcome - we had a great holiday. …
Self catering Gite with private pool.
Perfect Relaxing Stay and Fantastic Hosts/Owners
Just arrived back home to a wet and miserable looking N.Ireland, a far cry from what we have left behind.
We have visited this area of France several times before and the location is great for getting out and about, with a varied selection of good restaurants close by.
The Gite is all you could ever want and is immaculately presented and stocked with everything you will need to keep you going for your stay. The pool area is fantastic and one of the best pools we have had on previous stays in the area, with plenty of sunbeds, chairs and dining areas along with a built in BBQ.
The garden areas are kept clean and well maintained by Sarah & Steve the Owners who live on site which isn't a problem at all, they will give you as much space and privacy as you want but are there if you need anything, they are fantastic hosts and should be very proud of what they have done with the place.
We loved the place that much we have rebooked for another 3 weeks next year;-) …
An blissfully idyllic week, relaxing with family at Les Rivieres-Lidoire
Although the weather wasn't the best, we managed to fit in lots of sightseeing and did all that we had wanted to and more. Right from the first day Nicky was on hand to give us useful tips about supermarkets and places to visit/eat as well as lending us her map! Richard was busy going backwards and forwards to the UK to visit his ailing father but somehow still managed to find the time to sit and talk with us around sunset each day and made my dream come true, taking my boys to fish and sitting so patiently with them (Mum and Dad just kept getting their lines tangled up!).
We loved the old monastery carved out of the rock-face and the float down river in canoes at Brantome. Spent hours wandering around the market at St. Mathieu and splashed around happily with FREE canoes at the beautiful lakeside beach of St. Estephe (both recommended by Richard). You definitely need to rent a car to take in the sights but don't have to venture too far from the pool to take in the constant backdrop of sunflowers and chateaux.
On our last day we rented para-motors and climbed 800 feet over the impressive village of Villebois-Lavalette....having spent the morning before deep underground, exploring caves! …
La Petite Maison
Brilliant Hol, going again!
Wonderful property with everything you need to have a comfortable stay, maintained to a high
The owners are very welcoming, ask if you need or want to know anything!
Owners will cook wonderful meals on request.
Good location with beautiful lake 5 minutes by car
We had both teenagers and young children who made use of pool and games provided
but would suit couples as well.
Will visit again. …
We are a large family with 4 children aged 17,10,8 and 3! Martrieux is one of four gites - set in quiet peaceful countryside. There are plenty of quiet lanes to explore on bikes - great for runners too! Also lovely woods to explore - plenty of walking, lots of wildlife. The fishing lake was a huge hit with my son too! Sharing the outdoor facilities with 3 other gites was excellent as kids made friends and enjoyed playing in the games room and in the pool together. The gite was extremely well appointed, with everything you could need. The WiFi was better than at home! The beds were the most comfortable that we have ever slept on. Nicky and Richard were superb hosts, helping us when we needed a doctor, advising on local markets, wines, places to visit etc We would highly recommend!!!!! …
Les Rivieres- Beuronne
An excellent place to explore the real heart of France
We have visited a number of areas of France but this is outstanding. Les Rivieres lies in a small wooded hamlet in the North West corner of the Dordogne, far enough off the tourist track to give you the feeling of being somewhere very special but close enough to visit hotspots such as Brantome, the "Venice of the Dordogne" and the wine growing area of Bergerac. The local wildlife, particularly birds and deer, is outstanding. Les Rivieres offers everything any family could want to chill out on site including a swimming pool, a fully equipped gym, games room, cycles, television and internet access. …
