About the property

House in Champagnac, Nr. Riberac, Dordogne, Aquitaine, France - Peaceful Setting, Conveniently Located For Exploring The Dordogne

Les Chenes is a spacious, light and airy house in a charming rural setting, but still close to the essentials of daily living and conveniently located for exploring all the Dordogne has to offer. It has 3 bedrooms and a full bathroom on the first floor, with a large living area, fully-equipped kitchen, TV snug, shower room with WC and utility nook on the ground floor. French doors lead to the south-facing terraces which are ideal for alfresco dining and enjoying the beautiful views, and there is level access from the car parking area behind. Riberac (10 minutes away) has restaurants, supermarkets, boulangeries, banks, an artisan chocolatier, public pool and its superb Friday farmers market. Slightly further afield there are water sport facilities, golf courses, a nature reserve and even more restaurants. Within a 2 hour drive you will find the prehistoric caves of the Vezere valley, fortified chateaux, charming medieval towns, wine centres like St Emilion & Bergerac and much more.

About Ann Hill

We are an Australian family who love the French way of life so much that, despite the long journey, we spend as much time here as we can. The Dordogne is our favourite place to rest, relax and enjoy some of the best food and wine to be found anywhere.

Wonderful gite

  • 5 of 5

We had at wonderful week at Les Chenes. The location is perfect: very peaceful with wonderful views but with plenty of places nearby to keep everyone entertained. We spent many happy hours lounging in the pool and playing tennis. Also, it is one of best-equipped gites I have stayed in, with everything a keen cook could possibly need in the kitchen. Highly recommended!
