We had a wonderful time, thank you and the house was superb, the best we have stayed in over the last 6 years we have holidayed in France. Whilst we do like a change each year, we would like to re-book for next year - we loved it that much.

Wonderful Villa, amazing holiday with friends

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful villa with family and friends, total of 5 adults and 5 children. We were expecting something pretty good from the description and we weren't disappointed. This villa was perfect for all our needs. Very well equipped to accommodate cooking and relaxing with the children having fun in the cooling pool and extensive garden with table tennis. We had lovely weather and enjoyed exploring the local area, including Riberac, Brantome and Aubeterre. We were all sad to leave and would definitely stay again. Thank you

This was our second visit to this lovely "home from home" having had 2 holidays at Le Paillere making some

wonderful family memories.

The house is spacious and airy and beautifully decorated with all the amenities you could think of everything has been thought of here. The beautiful garden and grounds with flowers, fruit trees and herbs are something to be admired and the new addition of terrace and outdoor eating area was also fabulous. The kids and big kids loved to pool too! The house is close to all amenities, lots to see and do we particularly enjoyed Verteillac night market and Aubeterre river beach. We would definitely recommend this holiday home. Thanks Claire & Family

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our second year at this wonderful gite. The new sun deck is a perfect addition to what was already an amazing property. The gardens are truly magical with lots of wildlife encouraged to visit. The masses of butterflies added to the magic for the children. The house is a great size with plenty of space to find that moment of tranquility by yourself or to get together as a large family over dinner. All the essential provisions are there with a few extras you didn't think you would need. The house is well decorated and very well maintained making this truly a home from home. The house is perfectly situated only a 5 minute drive from all the amenities (and Friday market) of Riberac as well as being perfectly placed to explore this picturesque area of France. Thank you for another wonderful holiday. Hopefully see you again next year.

Owner's Response: Dear Lucy, Gordon and family. Thank you so much for your lovely review - it is much appreciated. We are so glad you had a wonderful time. We have tried hard to make the house a 'home from home' with all the little extras that were so often lacking when we ourselves used to rent properties for our holidays. Hopefully we will welcome you back next year. Kind regards Sandy

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your lovely review. We have worked hard to provide the sort of home that we would have liked ourselves when we used to rent (but sadly rarely experienced). So glad you had a lovely stay. Sandy St John

We will be Back!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in April enjoying the sunshine and the Orchids! (At least 7 varieties). Not only has the house been refurbished to a very high standard the owners have added all the "extras" to make you feel at home. Mirrors in the right places, electric points where you need them, a kitchen that flows well and to top it off a garden to envy. We would like to return with our children and families, it would be a superb place to stay as a group. There is plenty of accommodation space along with a garden and pool area to relax and enjoy. Riberac is a lovely town and the market is extensive and varied. There are lots of places to visit in the surrounding area, but it is always great to return "home" to Le Paillere.

Location

From the Owner

We first fell in love with this part of France 35 years ago when we made the first of many visits to friends who had bought a property in Lusignac. We just loved the peace and tranquillity of the beautiful countryside and visiting the many delightful towns and villages and sampling the local cuisine. We always wanted to buy a property in this area and finally had the opportunity in 2012. After much searching, we finally bought Le Paillere (the Hayfield). We have had 5 brilliant family summer holidays with the grandchildren and plan to have many more.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Bergerac at 50 Kilometres Nearest Beach : River beach at Aubeterre at 10 Kilometres

Coast/Beach:

The famous beach at Arcachon is approximately 2 hours away. However there is a 'river beach' on the River Dronne at Aubeterre (15 minutes drive), officially listed as one of the most beautiful villages in France. It's great fun for children with a swing park, diving board, sandy beach and beach café. The village itself has much to offer the 'culture vulture, together with wonderful cafés and restaurants. The Lac de Jemaye with windsurfing, canoeing, sandy beaches etc is about half an hour away.

Travel:

The property is situated about 1 hours drive north of Bergerac airport (flights with Ryanair from Stansted) or 90 minutes from Bordeaux (Easyjet from Gatwick). Car hire is essential. We are 500 miles from Calais, an early crossing finds you sitting with a glass of wine in plenty of time for dinner (approximately 8 hours).

Distances:

Riberac to the south is about 5 minutes by car and provides all your everyday needs - supermarket, boulangerie , boucherie, banks, restaurants etc. Fabulous market every Friday. Verteillac is a charming village about 8 km to the north with a selection of small shops, cafes and restaurants including boulangerie, boucherie/charcuterie and Merlauds, the most interesting shop you could wish to find. It sells everything from a packet of biscuits to a ride-on mower. Saturday morning market.

Further Details:

There is a bustling, traditional French country market every Friday in Riberac where you can buy the most wonderful fresh local produce. A visit to Brantome is a must, one of the most beautiful historic towns of the region. Situated on the river, it's about a 40 minute drive and a lovely place to spend the day, looking at the magnificent Abbey, browsing the interesting small shops or sampling the wonderful traditional cuisine in the many riverside restaurants. Then there is the canoeing which is great fun for children and adults alike. A wonderful area to explore whether on foot or by bike.

Facilities

From the Owner

Without a doubt the garden and swimming pool. All kids love a swimming pool and spend hours each day splashing around and having fun. We love the style of the property and the fact that there are 2 downstairs bedrooms and a bathroom which makes it suitable for elderly visitors. The property underwent substantial building works on the first floor in 2013 to provide 3 large bedrooms, all en-suite and in 2014 to the ground floor to provide a fully fitted kitchen, utility room and lounge with log burner (for winter guests). We love the peace, tranquility and seclusion to just wander around and do exactly as we please, particuarly long, lazy lunches in the garden, followed by a swim and sunbathing.

Notes:

The accommodation lends itself to great family holidays with grandparents, children and grandchildren (as we have) or 2 or 3 families wanting to share. Outside: The 2 acre garden is a children’s' paradise. It is very private and secure with remotely operated gates leading to a curving driveway and plenty of space for cars. The garden has numerous trees, including fruit trees in large grassy areas and slopes very gently with lovely views to the valley below. At the bottom of the garden is our private wood, the perfect place for adventurous kids to play. There is ample space for kids to run around, swing on the tyre swing, play ball games, table tennis etc but without a doubt, the main attraction is the 10m x 5m swimming pool with a security fence for peace of mind. It has a shallow shelf all around the edge, ideal for the less confident swimmer. A sun terrace and lawn surround the pool with 6 sunbeds, 2 reclining chairs all with cushions. Relief from the sun is provided by the many mature trees and a 4m x 2m gazebo. There are 2 outdoor tables one with 12 chairs and one with 6. Ample parasols. For that after lunch nap there is a double hammock. Utility Room: Newly fitted utility room adjoining the kitchen. Equipment includes washing machine, ironing board and iron, ample storage cupboards.
