Wonderful location & Gallaghers were very helpful & friendly . I would thoroughly recommend it.

  • 5 of 5

Rustic Gite with everything that you could possibly need in the kitchen. The pool was lovely & there was lots to do in the games room for our children(12&9). Lovely walks from the Gite & our dog was made to feel very welcome. Richard & Nicki were both helpful and friendly.Nicki was very helpful in organising a vet appointment for our dog before we came home. I could not recommend this lovely group of gites more-in fact our children are already pressurising us to rebook next year.

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.
