We had the most wonderful holiday at La Riviere helped by the glorious weather.

We all three came home rested, relaxed and a little tanned, thank you once again.

Gorgeous old farmhouse.

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely gorgeous old farmhouse, really nicely presented inside. The beds are really comfortable and bedrooms spacious and clean. The basement with table tennis is great for an evening.

The garden is lovely, we ate out there most nights from the BBQ, and spent a lot of time lazing around the pool during the day.

The surrounding areas are stunning. Lots of beautiful places to visit within a short driving distance.

Very enjoyable holiday.

Stunning quintessential french farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we turned the last corner and saw the beautiful property and surroundings until the time we left we have enjoyed staying here so much.

The welcome from the property manager Hans and his help during the week was invaluable.

The farmhouse was exceptionally clean and lots of room and space for the 5 adults to enjoy time together as well as time on our own if required without tripping over each other.

The peacefulness of the surroundings, the lovely pool, the fact the owners provided so much to do including the bikes, table tennis and games was brilliant.

We were very impressed with the folder in the property of the local attractions and the effort and time someone has taken to code them based upon location and duration from the cottage.

The sunday market in Objat is a must and if you like horses then Pompadour and the magical evening horse show is well worth the visit.

It is also a property with a good layout for anyone with disabilities or lack of mobility. Once up the stairs and inside there is enough downstairs room and sizeable bedrooms for everyone to feel comfortable.

As long as you don't mind seeing a few local wildlife (we named the small lizards Eddie, Freddy and Doris who kept the mosquitoes away) and seek peace and quiet with lovely surroundings this is an excellent choice of property and one we will be visiting again

a relaxing, rural retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have just got back from a week in this beautiful farmhouse.

It's in a lovely secluded, peaceful location and is very private.

The property was really well presented and was clean and comfortable. The decor is charming and the property is really well equipped which made it easy to cook meals and look after our 2 small children. Although we didn't have time to make the most of it the dvd's and game console would have been perfect if the weather was bad and the book collection was a bonus.

The enclosed garden and pool is just perfect and again well maintained. There were lots of outside furniture and sunloungers and the kids had lots of fun with the assorted pool noodles and floats. The pool cover was easy to use and felt safe when covered over and the candles in the garden were a lovely touch in the evenings. The whole booking experience was made very easy and the owners daughter, Sarah, has been fantastic to deal with. Han's greeted us when we arrived and was very helpful and welcoming. The owners of the property obviously love their home and have taken great care to make it a welcoming and relaxing place to stay. We can't recommend it enough.

Total relaxation

  • 5 of 5

The gite was very well positioned down a quiet no through lane, but never once felt isolated. It was very cosy and well equipped with everything one would need for an enjoyable stay.

The weather during our holiday was extremely hot , but the gite stayed cool and the pool was fantastic!

The surrounding area is beautiful with lots to see and do, if you can tear yourself away from the pool!

We returned to the UK very relaxed after a wonderful holiday.
