We just returned from our holiday, & I asked the family to vote, everyone said '5 stars'!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have had the best time at Les Rivieres, we stayed in La Lidoire and found it had everything we needed, and was very comfortable and completely as described. Our children are 5 1/2 and 2 years and 10months, and it suited them well as the accommodation didn't have stairs and was on one level. Plenty of facilities to cook and to BBQ, and it was all clean and well looked after. Nicky and Richard were welcoming and made our holiday very enjoyable, and the kids loved messing around in the pool with their two children too, and they were very sweet and shared their own toys with Jacob, our youngest. Pizza night was fantastic, and everyone staying there got together. We visited the local caves, took the kids to the local parks and the surrounding villages were lovely. With young children the main aim was to relax, which we did, in the evenings it was very peaceful, and lots of fun in the day. We would definitely return in the future, and explore the area more as the children get older, such as the beach lakes. Definitely recommend!

Perfect in every way. Beautiful area of France

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect 2 week stay. The children loved playing in the games room and swimming in the pool. The weather was Devine so plenty of barbecues. The area is filled with things to do. Canoeing in Brantone, high rope swings, outdoor swimming pool with slides and many river beaches. Richard and Nicky are fantastic hosts and nothing is too much trouble from advice on places to go and resteraunts to try and arranging bikes in any size required. The gite was spacious and clean. It had everything you would need for a relaxing stay including sky tv. We even had a go at fishing in the lake but unfortunately none of us caught a fish on that occasion. We did get to see some deer who came for a drink in the lake which made up for no catch. The holiday was truly fantastic!!!

Fantastic Family Home in a Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

The property and site were accurately described. The Gite was clean and well cared for, I could find no fault in it.

The owners Nicky and Richard, who live on site were both friendly and very knowledgeable about the area, they 'literally' have an open door policy when you want to talk to them. Nicky had clearly spent some time in creating her 'Trip advisor' beating local guide for restaurants and sites.

I would unquestionably recommend this property to anyone, I have every intention of going back, but next time dragging my friends along to.

I would really recommend visiting the towns of Bourdeilles, Brantome and Perigueux. For food Le Lavalette restaurant in the near by town. Further a field La Rochefoucauld Chateaux and the primates park La Signe.

I never leave reviews, but felt so strongly about a great holiday and people I simply had to. Thankyou Richard and Nicky - best of luck to you both.

A perfect holiday, A fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous setup Nicky and Richard have at Les Riviers,You could not want for more, We really loved our time there and was sad to leave.In amongst the sightseeing and chilling i managed a bit of fishing at the lake that belongs to the property, Once Richard told us which end to fish i managed to catch 18 carp in a morning. This will most definately be a place we will holiday again. The pictures do not do it Justice it is fantastic.Best regards Chris and Carol

Highly Recommended for Children. Great Place.

  • 5 of 5

We all, and particularly the children, had a great week at our Gite in the tiny hamlet of Nadaillac near the village of La Rochebeaucourt et Argentine. Our Gite, one of four on the property, was well furnished and clean with it’s own BBQ and patio furniture. During our week we canoed down the picturesque River Dronne to the village of Aubeterre, the children swam in the river: we went for a long bike ride (bikes provided) along beautiful country lanes, enjoyed a day at a lake with a lovely sandy beach; had a wonderful pizza evening cooking our own 'home made' pizzas in the owner’s wood fired oven and eating them with all the other guests on long trestle tables laid out on the ‘football pitch’, A great evening.

The children just loved the place. There was a lovely pool (lots of loungers for Mom and Dad), a rabbit, a dog, chickens, lots of other children, games room (Table Tennis, pool etc) a mini football pitch and bikes to borrow. Woods and meadows to explore and a fishing lake nearby. So much for them to do.

We, the adults that is, BBQ every evening, drank a little wine and relaxed. A very peaceful location but with plenty to do if you wished.

I would highly recommend the property to families with young and active children.

Fantastic facilities in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends rented two gites in this "complex" of 4 gites which are in converted farm buildings. The Gites are clean, well maintained and are equipped with everything you'd need. The photos on the website do not capture how lovely the gites are. The grounds had plenty of facilities to please adults and children, infact many of our group did not leave the site for the entire week other than to buy supplies in the nearby town. The woods and fields behind the gites are beautiful and we saw wild deer a couple of times on walks there. If you do prefer to explore the local surrounds there are some very pretty towns in the area with plenty of activities such as canoeing available. We saw deer in the woods behind the gitesNicky and Richard were great, friendly and helpful hosts. We all liked it so much we have already booked all 4 gites next summer.
