We enjoyed being by the river in the peace and quiet (despite being close to the road!). The canoeing was good. We saw many kingfishers, dippers and other birds. Very comfortable flat and very accessible to interesting places.
Natalie was very welcoming and her English is excellent which helps. The cottage was very comfortable and has everything you need. We stayed in the one with a tiled covered gazebo which was great when it was raining because you could still sit outside. We stayed 4 nights which I think was just right. Plenty of places to visit within an hour and Natalie was always on hand with advise. Only slight negative is it is not walking distance of the town of Riberac but we knew that before we booked. Overall a very relaxing stay which was perfect.
Lovely, peaceful stay right on the river
We spent a week here in early September. It's a gorgeous restored house on the river Dronne. It's simple but stylish, comfortable and clean. The owner lives on-site and is charming and helpful. Get past the feisty geese for a gentle paddle on the river in the canoes which are available for you to use at any time, before a glass of local wine on your own little terrace. Perfect for a quiet, relaxing break in a beautiful location.
Very comfortable in beautiful surroundings.
Welcomed by Nathalie and Thierry who were very helpful. 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.
Great accommodation, excellent condition, friendly owners
We had a really relaxing week with Nathalie and Thierry, making the most of the good weather and lovely Dronne River. Having 2 canoes at our disposal was a real bonus and something we availed of on more than one occasion. We could recommend this property without hesitation.
An idyllic place to by the river
We happily recommend staying in the Cottage in the Mill on the River Dronne. We spent an idyllic week falling asleep to the sound of the river, sunning ourselves on the deck by the weir and canoeing up and down the Dronne. It is a place where you can spend time cooking and reading and it is a place where you can base yourselves to explore the region. Riberac (3km away) has a market on Fridays and Perigeaux (20km) has a market on Saturdays and Tuesdays both of which are filled with local produce and delights of the region. Nathalie is a great host, she has thought of everything including the best restaurants nearby and how to plan your canoe trip.
If you, like us, are contemplating a trip with family in the future, it helps to know there are three cottages which could be hired together. Sometimes enough space makes for good family time.
Ribérac is an agricultural hub where land products are exchanged throughout the year at major markets (every Friday morning on the main square)
The ancient city is proud of its many festivals and exhibitions.
Located in the heart of Roman churches circuit.
Etang de la Jemaye at 15 km.
