Barn Conversion near Riberac, Dordogne, France - Tranquil Location, 10 Minute Walk to the Village

The Riverside Barn is a stone built barn that was constructed in 1912 and converted in 1997. There are 2 bedrooms that sleep 4 people. Mezzanine will sleep a further person on a divan bed. The main living area is huge with an oak beamed ceiling. Outside there is an enclosed garden for sun-bathing leading to a maple tree shaded deck for drinks or dinner overlooking the river Dronne. A path leads to the lawned bank of the river where you can relax and refresh in the cool water. Kayaks and bikes can be hired from the barn. The whole area is wonderful for kayaking, walks, biking or trips to the local towns. The barn is within a 10 minute walk of the local village and 15 minutes from Riberac and 20 minutes from the medieval town of Perigeaux the capital of the Perigord.

Lovely relaxing holiday

  • 5 out of 5
We were here for just over a week, loved everything about it. The barn itself is fabulous and very well equipped. The garden with the deck looking out over the river makes the perfect place for long leisurely lunches, we were even joined by a red squirrel some days! We ate out in the rear courtyard most evenings, watching the bats flying under the trees.
We had perfect weather so spent a lot of time just relaxing by the river, reading, eating and drinking, but also had trips to Perigueux, Riberac and Brantome, all very local and with lovely markets. We had a lovely (if rather hot!) walk around Montagrier and a delicious lunch at the restaurant there. We didn't use the bikes or kayaks but may well do so next time and it's great that they are available, especially for guests with children.
Annie was very helpful throughout our stay, especially when we arrived very late because of a puncture on our arrival day!
I have already recommended this property to friends and we certainly hope to return in the future. It is the ideal place to relax and enjoy the beautiful countryside.

Pure bliss

This was our second stay at the Riverside Barn and we enjoyed it even more this time. The house has all you need for a comfortable stay with thoughtful touches like tea and coffee, dishwasher tablets and plenty of towels. The kitchen is well equipped and you can cook proper meals (a rarity in holiday accommodation in our experience) or barbeque and then eat in the lovely shady terrace.

We had great weather with a dramatic storm one night. Although my favourite thing is to sit next to the river and read, the kids did lots of kayaking and my husband and teenagers kayaked to Bordeilles and back one afternoon. Having kayaks and bikes available is brilliant as you don't need to bring all your own kit.

We found many me things to do in the local area this time and enjoyed tips to Brantome, Perigeux and Tocane (lovely market) and decided that a week just isn't long enough.

It was so relaxing, thank you for letting us stay. As last time, Annie was really helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. We love it in Lonlaygue and will definitely be back.

Fabulous Place

  • 5 out of 5
This was a fabulous find!
The photo's do not do it justice. Inside, the converted barn is very well appointed and comfortable but also very spacious. The beds were very comfortable (the double bed is actually a large double/king size) The large garden is, which leads down to the river, is lovely. We made use of the kayak's. Paddling up river to the weir and 'jacuzzi' then drifting back down to the property, was idyllic!
Annie, the lady who welcomed us, was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay.
