Well maintained and extensive garden space with lots of shady areas in heat of summer and plenty of seating to satisfy all tastes Location is excellent, quiet countryside but within 10-15 minute walk of St Jean de Cole (officially classified as one of the most beautiful villages in France) with a range of good restaurants, general store and pharmacy. John and Carolyn were great hosts and available to deal quickly with any issues to ensure guests enjoyed a comfortable stay in their property.

We had a very enjoyable stay in spacious comfortable accommodation. We arrrived in a heatwave. It poured with rain the next day and the remainder of the week was overcast but pleasantly warm. The little private terrace provided a place to enjoy eating, reading and admiring the view of the river. The quality bed was perfect for my bad back. Sofa was also comfortable. Kitchen equipped sufficiently for us to prepare our own meals. Unfortunately the weather did not entice me into the river for swimming but we did take a canoe (provided for our use) for a paddle up the river. The two pet geese provided entertainment. Riberac was handy for supplies from the supermarket and the Friday market. There is a little boulangerie a couple of minutes drive in the opposite direction. A very relaxing week with the potential to play on the river.
