About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Nicky Gallagher

English Family from the North! With children Ethan, 10 and Isabelle, 15. Les Rivieres Gites is our labour of love for 17 years.

Year property purchased 2003
Why this location? Lovely unspoilt rural location, just the sound of the birds to disturb you.
Unique benefits of property We are super family orientated. There are 5 units on site but each has their own private space. Kids love our pizza making parties and there are 10 acres of grounds with, pool, games galore, outdoor fun making dens or catching lizards.

The Owner Recommends

Brantome, The Venice of the Perigord

Beautiful medieval town encircled by the river Dronne. There is something for everyone, such as energetic canoeing or a leisurely cruise, Troglodyte cave museum, an ancient abbey with stunning architecture, independent boutiques, lovely restaurants and souvenir shops.

Acrobranching/Tree Climbing

There are many places nearby for tree climbing and zip wires. We like the beach at St Aulaye where you have climbing, canoeing, river beach and a cafe all in the same spot. Great if you have members of the family who do not fancy zip wiring across the river! They will be happy sipping a cold beer watching the kids swimming and playing on the beach.

Wine Tasting or Cognac Tours

Not far from St Emillion for the serious wine buffs or Cognac distilleries. You can also tour our local distillery for the regional tipple: Pineau.

Activities for Young Children

We are super family orientated and have lots to do on-site for all ages. The little ones are well catered for with a sandpit, swings and slide, paddling pool, bouncy castle, wendy house, tractors and push alongs. We have a large number of bikes, two of which with baby seats.
There are 10 acres to safely explore with a wild flower maze where they can catch butterflies.
Highchairs, cots, stairgates, bed guards etc. all available free of charge.
The Private Fishing lake is a short walk from the property so doesn't pose a risk and the swimming pool is properly fenced with a child proof locking gate.
Babysitting service available.
