About the property

7 Bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, sleeps 14 plus cots & rollaway beds

Le Cheval Blanc is a large, but intimate and homely self-catering property in the Dordogne providing luxurious accommodation and an exclusive swimming pool at non-luxury prices. We can sleep at least 14 people in 7 big ensuite bedrooms.

Your destination is a rambling 19th Century farmhouse in the heart of the Dordogne countryside. It is situated in the tiny secluded hamlet of Joubertias just 5 minutes drive from the charming market town of Riberac where you will find supermarkets, shops, restaurants and banks. Venture just a little further and you will find the mediaeval town of Brantome (the Venice of the Dordogne) and, of course, all the attractions that the wine regions have to offer. Experience has taught us that happy children make happy parents, so we pride ourselves on being baby, child and family friendly. Please contact us to hear more about our facilities for those travelling with babies and young children to make your family holiday as stress free as possible.

Chene House

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic property for a large group -we had 6 families and lots of children and this was fabulous - large open plan space was great for gatherings and the pool area lovely and very safe with small children.

Some lovely touches like dressing gowns in the bedrooms made us feel very welcome.

We would deginatelyt return if we wanted a large property again.

Wonderful holiday!

  • 5 of 5

The house was the most comfortable and best equipped of all the self catering properties we've ever stayed at over a period of 40 years! We were a family of 14-3 generations ranging in age from 3-69 years old.... There was plenty of space for all of us, the cinema room was a great hit with the grandchildren (who enjoyed multiple viewings of Harry Potter and Indiana Jones DVDs when it was hot outside) and also the pool. The kitchen was incredible-we all love to cook and were never short of top quality equipment and there was a choice of 3 dining areas. Bill and Gill were careful hosts-never intrusive but always ready to deal with any questions or problems. Being very picky, the only drawback was having no air conditioning (it was very very hot for a lot of the time we were there) but we admit it's impossible to retro fit aircon to an old barn!!! We enjoyed the surrounding area-spending a lot of time at the river beach at Aubeterre and the lake at La Jemaye which had a beach, cafes, lovely walks and free canoeing.

Family friendly with every amenity

  • 4 of 5

This was our third consecutive year at Le Cheval Blanc and the best yet - the owners are always available to assist with any question or query; the house is spacious and family friendly with everything provided to ensure a happy and contented stay. The fact that our three families aged from 2 to late 60s had a wonderful time and have made this our preferred destination for the third year running says it all. We can't recommend it highly enough.

Another wonderful stay at Le Cheval Blanc

  • 5 of 5

This is our second consecutive year at Le Cheval Blanc and we have already booked for next year which says it all. Venue perfect for family groups - we are multi-generational and something for everyone within a house stocked with everything one could need and best of all, lovely hosts who are available at any time to meet any additional requirement. We have had the best holiday yet and can't wait for next year.

Best house we've ever stayed at

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous spacious house with everything you need and more. The photos don't do it justice. Superbly well equipped kitchen - lots of fridges which were so useful as it was so hot. All the bedrooms were beautiful. Great pool and outdoor space. Would definitely recommend this house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Unbelievable fun!! The warmth we experienced in this fabulous home has touched our souls. It was a time to truly remember. Time stayed still for the weekend. The air, the colours, the birds, the scents all fed the senses and finest of foods fed the soul. The best place I’ve ever been! **We all had a wonderful holiday here in Cheval Blanc. The attention to detail made all the difference. **All in all, young, old and middle aged- we all had an excellent holiday. A beautiful house and a holiday we won’t forget with treasured memories. **Le Cheval Blanc is everything you would expect at a luxury gite. The lounge is superb, plenty of space, swimming pool perfect and bedroom accommodation perfect too. **The house is lovely, very well thought out and the best bits are in the details, especially for the children. 5 star!! **Le Cheval Blanc is a wonderful place and the attention to detail was high quality. Both children loved the huge floorspace to run/crawl/try to walk around!
