About the property

7 Bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, sleeps 14 plus cots & rollaway beds

Le Cheval Blanc is a large, but intimate and homely self-catering property in the Dordogne providing luxurious accommodation and an exclusive swimming pool at non-luxury prices. We can sleep at least 14 people in 7 big ensuite bedrooms.

Your destination is a rambling 19th Century farmhouse in the heart of the Dordogne countryside. It is situated in the tiny secluded hamlet of Joubertias just 5 minutes drive from the charming market town of Riberac where you will find supermarkets, shops, restaurants and banks. Venture just a little further and you will find the mediaeval town of Brantome (the Venice of the Dordogne) and, of course, all the attractions that the wine regions have to offer. Experience has taught us that happy children make happy parents, so we pride ourselves on being baby, child and family friendly. Please contact us to hear more about our facilities for those travelling with babies and young children to make your family holiday as stress free as possible.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Unbelievable fun!! The warmth we experienced in this fabulous home has touched our souls. It was a time to truly remember. Time stayed still for the weekend. The air, the colours, the birds, the scents all fed the senses and finest of foods fed the soul. The best place I’ve ever been! **We all had a wonderful holiday here in Cheval Blanc. The attention to detail made all the difference. **All in all, young, old and middle aged- we all had an excellent holiday. A beautiful house and a holiday we won’t forget with treasured memories. **Le Cheval Blanc is everything you would expect at a luxury gite. The lounge is superb, plenty of space, swimming pool perfect and bedroom accommodation perfect too. **The house is lovely, very well thought out and the best bits are in the details, especially for the children. 5 star!! **Le Cheval Blanc is a wonderful place and the attention to detail was high quality. Both children loved the huge floorspace to run/crawl/try to walk around!

We love it so much we have booked again

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 adults and 5 children enjoyed our 5th visit to this lovely house . We have already booked for next year. I think this says it all. The house is very well equiped as is the pool area. Jill and Bill make every effort to make your stay enjoyable . We all made good use of the pool and the children enjoyed cooling off watching a DVD in the tv room

Annual France Group Holiday

  • 5 of 5

As a group ranging from 8 to15 persons, we have had an annual France holiday for the last 15 years. This property is the best equipped that we have stayed in so far.

The quality of the bedding in all the bedrooms was good as was the kitchen equipment.

The house is full of character and spacious.

I was also a nice touch having a pool fridge to save walking back into the house to grab a cold drink.

The host were very helpful & always on hand without being intrusive.

The only very minor negative was that the layout of the kitchen resulted limited work surfaces if multiple people were preparing food at the same time.

Perfect house and location for Our group of friends to catch up

  • 5 of 5

Right from the time of our booking to when we reluctantly left Lynne, Jill & Bill were very responsive to our constant questions and ensured that we were very comfortable even before our arrival

We were a group of eleven friends, mostly from the UK but a couple from Australia. The house was equipped with everything you could think of in your own house. There are three eating areas, one by the pool, all seating fourteen. We toured the local area a few days - which is fabulous - but just loved sitting by the pool, or a quiet spot if you just wanted to read, catching with old and recent "gossip"

We flew into Bergerac which is just an hour's drive.

Great week

Wonderful holiday!

  • 5 of 5

The house was the most comfortable and best equipped of all the self catering properties we've ever stayed at over a period of 40 years! We were a family of 14-3 generations ranging in age from 3-69 years old.... There was plenty of space for all of us, the cinema room was a great hit with the grandchildren (who enjoyed multiple viewings of Harry Potter and Indiana Jones DVDs when it was hot outside) and also the pool. The kitchen was incredible-we all love to cook and were never short of top quality equipment and there was a choice of 3 dining areas. Bill and Gill were careful hosts-never intrusive but always ready to deal with any questions or problems. Being very picky, the only drawback was having no air conditioning (it was very very hot for a lot of the time we were there) but we admit it's impossible to retro fit aircon to an old barn!!! We enjoyed the surrounding area-spending a lot of time at the river beach at Aubeterre and the lake at La Jemaye which had a beach, cafes, lovely walks and free canoeing.

Family friendly with every amenity

  • 4 of 5

This was our third consecutive year at Le Cheval Blanc and the best yet - the owners are always available to assist with any question or query; the house is spacious and family friendly with everything provided to ensure a happy and contented stay. The fact that our three families aged from 2 to late 60s had a wonderful time and have made this our preferred destination for the third year running says it all. We can't recommend it highly enough.
