Stone Cottage in a Pretty Hamlet



Updated: 16-Sep-2016
Restored Stone Cottage near Riberac, Dordogne, France - Peaceful Location with Views and 3kms from Riberac

A recently restored spacious stone cottage in the centre of a hamlet of around 12 stone houses, ideally situated for quiet relaxing days in the secluded garden or walking through the surrounding countryside. It is a short 5 mins drive into the quiet cafes and restaurants of the nearby Dordogne town of Riberac. There you will find a lovely town square with fountains, cafes and the bustling Friday morning market, one of the largest in the region. The hamlet is surrounded by agricultural land, woods and magnificent views, plus numerous marked walks. The gite has recently been restored with a modern kitchen and shower room whilst retaining the oak beams, fireplace and exposed stone walling and other original features. Stairs lead to the mezzanine floor (6ft high at centre but lower at each side) with two single beds and a sofa bed. A French window leads to the rear garden with the table and chairs in the shade of a Mirabelle tree.

Smukt restaureret hus

  • 5 of 5

Dejligt lille hus, som er meget smukt restaureret, beliggende i en meget lille landsby. Der er ingen indkøbsmuligheder i selve byen, men kun ca fem kilometer derfra er der fine muligheder for såvel indkøb som restaurantbesøg. Huset ligger kun et par timers kørsel fra alle de fantastiske huler omkring Les-Eyzies-Tayac og egnen omkring Rocamadour.

Der er en dejlig lukket have til huset, med både sol og skygge. Det lykkedes dog vores hund at snige sig ud og gå på opdagelse i omgivelserne.

Vi var fuldt ud tilfredse med både modtagelse, husets tilstand og rengøringstilstanden, og kan varmt anbefale huset.

Trés bon souvenir de notre séjour à travers notre location chez Paul et sa femme qui est tres bien !

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons été ravi de notre séjour chez Paul ! Le logement été très agréable , arrangé avec goût , très propre et avec une cour fermée très sympa également . Nous étions en pleine campagne tout en ayant Ribérac à 3 kms avec ses commerces , ses soirées musicales organisées aux terrasses des différents cafés et le marché qui est lui aussi trés bien . Personnellement nous avons passé des vacances tranquilles à savourer les choses simples de la vie !! N'oublions pas de dire également que Paul et sa femme sont trés gentils et à l'écoute .

pour les anglais.......

  • 2 of 5

Pour Abritel :prévenez dans vos annonces que nous devrons payer en Livres anglaises cela évitera aux Français de se faire taxer de conversion de change par leur banque.

Pour nos amis logeurs anglais en France : faîtes un effort s'il vous plaît !

1) dans la rédaction de vos messages, je suis sûr que vous pouvez trouver de charmantes personnes de votre coin de France pour vous aider à la rédaction,

2) nous eussions aimer avoir la TV dans notre bonne langue française, surtout pour l'Euro 2016 et les commentaires de nos dures actualités, ( en plus radio HS),

3) le petit déjeuner, comme pour vous Anglais, est tout autant important pour nous Français (vos locataires) pensez à mettre à notre disposition des bols pour soit notre chocolat soit notre café avec ou sans lait.

Sinon que dire : des ennuis mineurs comme porte des WC/salle de bains qui ne ferme pas, barbecue qui a évité le nettoyage...

Pour la bonne note : location propre, au calme, bailleurs très sympas...

Bref tout n'est pas négatif, mais nous ne reviendrons pas.

J'espère que pour l'an prochain nous trouverons ...à notre mesure.
