About this property

Large House With Private Pool & Riverside Garden. This cottage/gite is in a village setting.

Large village house in a lovely French village with large above ground swimming pool (during summer months May-Sept). The size of the pool is 4.5m diameter and 1.22m deep, there is a ladder for easy entry and the pool can easily fit 8 adults.
The house is excellent for a group of friends/family. With 4 large double bedrooms (2 with en suites) and a large family bathroom there is plenty of room for everyone! Downstairs there is a wc with toilet and sink, large sitting room with English tv, dvd player etc, large games room with pool table, table tennis and darts (ideal for entertaining the children while you enjoy a glass of wine!) very large modern kitchen with all mod cons (dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave etc) and an adjoining large dining room.The house is South facing and very light and bright all day while remaining cool due to the thick stone walls (the windows all have shutters should you wish to keep the sun out). The dining room and back sitting room both have glass doors opening onto a lovely sunny courtyard which is completely private and gets the sun each evening, there is also a stone bbq ready for those lovely sunny evenings along with table and chairs.
This house is really excellent for entertaining and relaxing over a glass of wine. There are wooden doors off the courtyard leading to the lovely riverside garden. The garden is private with a private driveway as well as an electricity point should you wish to enjoy some music etc while relaxing. The garden gets sun all day and is a very relaxing setting. We have decking on the river and another stone bbq so more eating, drinking and relaxing should be on the menu!

We enjoyed a very nice holiday at this lovely house. The garden is lovely and is on the river so I even managed to do some fishing! The house is huge inside with good sized bedrooms and all the things you need for a comfortable stay. My wife told me all the bed linen was lovely.....Internet, Pool room, English TV and a short wander to an excellent bar/resturant (and little shop and bakers, We would be more than happy to return as it is a great base for exploring the Dordogne.

Highly recommended. Bright and airy. Loved walking to bar for afternoon drinks. Village shop very handy. Pool lovely and warm with plenty of room for all. House was very clean and well equipped. Nice and cool inside on a hot day. Fast internet available throughout. All mod cons nothing else we needed. English TV very handy. Quick replies from owner by text when we had questions. Would love to return one day.

Very much enjoyed our holiday here. House was exactly as described, extremely well equipped with everything thought off. We especially loved the village location and being able to walk to all amenities. The local shop and restaurant were much appreciated and we enjoyed several barginous meals here before walking back to the house. The garden is very tranquil and the kids loved going in the pool all day while we drank wine by the river. Certainly hope to return one day. Thank you for having us to stay.

We stayed here and had a simply wonderful holiday. The house is just what we were looking for, very large with loads of space for all of us (party of 8). Games room was fabulous, entertained the husbands and children for hours of an evening. The swimming pool was perfect, lovely and warm at all times and could fit all of us in comfortably and having a garden on the river was very relaxing and tranquil. The house was very clean and well maintained, the owner was always available at short notice if we had a query. Everything worked while we were there and the internet/WiFI was much appreciated. The village the house is in is very nice, a really good bar/restaurant and local shop which had a good selection of groceries. Also brilliant being able to walk to everything and pick up a fresh baguette/croissant in the morning. Only a short drive to Brantome where you can find numerous restaurants and tourist attractions. This was an extremely good holiday and for the price we paid outstanding. Will be visiting again next time we go to France. Recommend to all and especially large groups!
