Lovely house, peaceful and relaxing.
The property is part of a water mill on the banks of the Drone. 2 bed house is well equipped and comfortable with a private terrace. It is very peaceful, relaxing place. We used canoes provided by Nathalie and had great swimming days. Plenty to do in the area around including cycling. A great location. Nathalie and Thierry were very helpful and kind to us and didnt intrude at all.
The property was lovely with everything you need....but the environment was outstanding! We canoed for free right from our garden and swam in the beautiful river Dronne. The owner was so lovely finding and booking us a restaurant that would cater for vegetarians..........thank you Nathalie
Comfortable and well equipped gite
We enjoyed our 11 day stay in the gite above the mill (?the original miller's house). The house, which is approached by a long grass track up which you must reverse on leaving, has been converted with thought and style and is well equipped. There was also ample space to sit on the verandah, though no view of the river from this side and occasional road noise. The high ceilings and stone walls kept the house cool when the weather became warm. However it was unseasonably wet and cold at first and we appreciated the woodburning stove which Nathalie had lit for our arrival (ample supply of wood) and the groceries she left for next morning. There is a good Leclerc supermarket 5 mins drive on the edge of Riberac, an unassuming and pleasant town with an excellent and famous Friday market and we liked sitting under the trees outside the Cafe des Colonnes, a very long established traditional cafe in the market place.There are good local restaurants and we would recommend A Fleur d'Eau by the river in Riberac
We had free access to the canoes and could sit by the river, but the recent heavy rain meant we drove 20 mins to Lac Jemaye to swim. This has a good beach and can be busy, but fine if you choose your time. We also enjoyed cycling around quiet and pretty local villages with their fine Romanesque churches, visiting the abbey caves at Brantome - though the village is a bit touristy. The village of Aubeterre , though very beautiful and with an extraordinary 12th century rock hewn church, did not seem overwhelmed by tourism. Nor did the area generally, unlike parts of the Dordogne further South.
Lovely little cottage with stunning river views
Lovely little cottage with beautiful views outside of the river. Very warm welcome from Nathalie and all of the facilities you need for a comfortable stay. We had a really enjoyable long weekend and the cottage is ideally placed for lots of lovely villages and towns in the area.
Logement conforme au descriptif, propre avec des équipements fonctionnels
Accueil agréable, et attentionné (confiture maison et café disponible à notre arrivée et mise à disposition de bois de chauffage). La propriétaire a été réactive pour remplacer le boitier de la TNT tombé en panne. Elle a su rester discrète bien qu'habitant sur le site. Nous avons passé un bon séjour.

Nous conseillons ce gîte
Après un accueil très sympathique et convivial de la propriétaire, nous avons eu le plaisir de profiter de ce charmant gîte. Quel plaisir de bouquiner dans le jardin verdoyant et fleuri tout en contemplant la Dronne qui coule à nos pieds. Les poules caquettes autour de nous en toute liberté et c'est très agréable. D'ici, les excursions vers Brantôme, Bourdeilles, St jean de Côle, Aubeterre etc... sont aisées. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié cet endroit. Bonne adresse. N'hésitez pas à la découvrir.
