The garden faces southwest and enjoys sunshine all day long, with a shady eating area under the old lime tree which is perfect for enjoying the view at any time of day. Garden furniture and a barbecue are provided.

A path leads from the garden downhill to a "wilderness" area with a trampoline that is always popular with younger visitors.

The Dordogne region

The Dordogne has been popular with British visitors for many years. The sunshine and the colours of the blue sky, reddish soils and the stone houses with their terracotta tiled roofs make it enchantingly beautiful. The extensive fields of sunflowers in July and August are also a wonderful sight. The summers are warm to hot. Places of interest include Aubeterre sur Dronne, officially one of the Most Beautiful Villages in France (20 minutes); Perigueux, a town with lovely winding alleyways and a recently restored cathedral (40 minutes); Sarlat, a foie gras centre with beautful yellow stone buildings (one and a half hours); and the prehistoric sites around Les Eyzies (around 2 hours).
Wine lovers should not miss St Emilon, less than an hour and a half away, which not only offers a wide range of wine tasting options but is also stunningly beautiful and forms part of the UNESCO world cultural heritage. The city of Bordeaux, which features wonderful civic architecture along the river and a wide range of large and small shops, is only an hour and a half away.

Aquitaine/Dordogne

Riberac is a small market town which has a good range of shops including 2 large supermarkets. There is a good choice of restaurants and several little cafes where you can just sit and watch the world go by. The market on Fridays is one of the best in the Dordogne and not to be missed.
In summer there are open-air concerts in the evening in the main square, and the increasingly popular Grand Souk music festival is held in July.
Sports facilities include canoeing on the River Dronne, cycle hire, horse riding, tennis courts and the public swimming pool, plus the swimming lake at La Jemaye (20 minutes away) which is popular with locals and visitors alike.

“beautiful, peaceful sanctuary”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2016

we stayed in chez vignaud for a family wedding in riiberac, location perfect, setting was beautiful, house was very homely, and ideal for our requirements, has everything you need for a home from home feel holiday, the photos don't do the home justice as its difficult to see how stunning the building is and all the views. for those active people i soon found a nice 3 mile running circuit with undulating hills!!! with the heat to contend with it was a perfect training circuit, lovely area to cycle around too.

I'm delighted you had a great holiday. Not sure that I'd cope with the running, but there are some lovely walking routes around the nearby hamlets for enjoying the views and admiring the old stone houses.
