Relax in the superb swimming pool, totally private for your exclusive use.

The pool measures 12m x 6m - 40ft x 20ft, which is almost 50% larger than other pools measuring only 10 x 5m. There are security fences, as per French law, to protect your children from accidents, with gates which cannot be opened by young children. The coloured underwater lighting is perfect for a night-time dip. Towels are included in the price, which is ideal if you are coming by train or plane, or simply to give you more room in the car. Take advantage of the luxurious spa, in its own summerhouse, so you are protected from the sun. Relax and appreciate the view over the valley. Experience the wood-fired sauna, or book a massage with a qualified professional. For the more energetic there is the games field for table tennis, football, badminton, volleyball etc, as well as a nature area for picnics with plentiful butterflies etc. The immediate area is ideal for walking or mountain biking, with marked routes. (Maps available.) The surrounding roads are ideal for cycling, as there is so little traffic. Horse riding and tennis are available in the village, only 2 minutes away by car; canoeing and fishing on the River Dronne are available in the town, only 5 minutes away by car. Have a go at baking your own pizzas in the wood-fired oven. La Vallée is a charming large holiday home for 14 people in the Dordogne countryside, yet only 5 minutes from town. The interior has been fully renovated, giving you all the comforts whilst retaining the original features of the house, such as exposed beams and stonework. The kitchen is very well equipped, including Bosch dishwasher, Panasonic microwave, Bosch pyrolytic multi-function oven, 2 fridges (one is large American style) and Bosch 7.5kg capacity washing machine as well as a huge oval table, specially made for this house, to easily seat 14 people. There are plenty of glasses, crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils, pots and pans etc to comfortbaly cater for 14 people.

(2 King size double beds, 8 single beds, 1 double sofa-bed and 2 cots in 6 bedrooms). Enjoy your family meals together with the permanent triple barbecue, whilst seated on the large, shaded terrace which benefits from shade at lunchtime and lighting for the warm evenings, overlooking a superb view of the valley. The surrounding gardens are expansive with large grassed area, flower beds and swings and a sandpit for the children. The village of Villetoureix is 2 minutes away by car, with a village shop with daily bread delivery and a charming popular bar / restaurant. The town of Ribérac is 5 minutes away by car: with banks, pharmacies, doctors, bars, restaurants, supermarkets and a weekly market, the largest in the Dordogne area. La Vallée is ideally located to visit the Dordogne and the Charente regions: prehistoric caves, splendid chateaux, charming villages and their churches, vineyards, several natural preserved areas and of course the farmers markets. The owners live in the same hamlet so are available for maintenance of the pool, spa, sauna and gardens, as well as on hand for advice on restaurants, shopping and days out etc. Use of the spa, sauna and pizza oven are included in the price, as are bedlinen and towels. La Vallée is ideal for a quiet and relaxing holiday, with friends or family, in the peace of the Dordogne countryside.

Super place to stay

Super holiday home. Photos do not do this property justice! Far nicer and bigger than in the advert. TV useful to keep the kids quiet (and adults too!) Pool v.clean with a robot. Grounds well looked after. Spa, sauna etc well maintained. Kids loved the table tennis. We booked massages which were marvellous. Everyone loved the pizza evening, by the second week we were almost professionals! (My husband is now looking into building one in our back garden!) Booking was pain free, owners replied promptly and answered all our questions. We had a contract with details of what to pay when. They explained various things when we arrived, then left us to it, but were there for translation, booking restaurants and help with the odd visit to the pharmacy and doctors (broken toe canoeing!) All in all, great place for a family holiday.

What a Truly Wonderful Place to stay

Having a large family, we found the perfect place to stay at John and Lesley's. We had plenty of room for all the children and adults alike! The pool was fabulously inviting and warm and always kept clean. John and Lesley were excellent hosts and were always around if we needed anything and during our stay they arranged an excellent pizza night which was enjoyed by all. Throughly recommended!!

Holiday in "La Vallée"

We spent a very enjoyable week at La Vallée. The house is comfortable and well equipped. The heated pool with lights allows you to swim or relax during the day or evening (Try it at nightfall;-)). You can also enjoy the jacuzzi, very relaxing after a long day walking and the sauna's good too. The place is very quiet and allows you to recharge your batteries, all in a beautiful area. Ideal for a holiday with family or friends. Thank you again to John and Lesley for their hospitality and kindness.

La Vallée -

A holiday home perfect in every way: quiet without being too isolated, very well equipped & decorated. The pool is large, properly secured, very clean. The spa is also ideal for watching shooting stars in August! If at the time of booking, the jacuzzi had seemed a little "trivial", it was very much appreciated, especially in the evening. Finally, our hosts John & Lesley were perfect, both available and discreet at the same time. We hope to come back one day!

100% Satisfaction

The owners have done a magnificent job with this house. A perfect balance of quality and price. The house is very comfortable, in small details, beds and plenty of room available. The property allowed everyone to have their own space : pool, spa, games for the children etc. A most enjoyable stay in a beautiful region. Thanks you to them for their welcome, availability and kindness. We'll be back.

Our Family Holiday

This very well equipped and tastefully decorated home is ideal for a family holiday. Spacious and well maintained, it was a hit with both parents and children. The house and the many facilities of the property allowed everyone to have their ideal holiday. Quiet area. Discreet owners.

Family holiday

We spent our holiday at La Vallée in August , with the whole family , 7 adults and 5 children ( aged 11 years to 17 years) and our father, who celebrated his birthday (89 years) during our stay. It was a fantastic, idyllic location, with far-reaching views of the beautiful countryside , yet only a short drive to the town of Riberac and many interesting places . Our hosts, John and Lesley , were fabulous , always there if you needed them , but never intrusive. The house is beautiful with all the equipment you could need , gorgeous and extremely comfortable bedrooms. With the excellent weather we had , we ate most of our meals outside , with large table and very large barbeque . La Vallée has a lovely private swimming pool in a beautiful garden , and now the wonderful jacuzzi has been added . The large plot included a football field, table tennis and room for badminton and also beautiful walks. It was perfect, a beautiful area of France . Well recommended.

Our impressions of La Vallée

Very nice well maintained place for large families, very beautiful and large secure swimming pool, we were 14 to dive enthusiastically into the pool and we never had the feeling of being cramped. Great home, great hospitality, immediate availability of the owners in case of problems or questions yet on the other hand, the owners were never intrusive, only coming to the house at our request. Large space for playing football, volleyball ... highly recommended! (Funny, Belgium)

Relaxing weekend with friends

The house has every comfort you could wish for : well equipped, good beds... The house is very big, full of quirky corners, and everyone had their own room. Sadly the weather wasn't up to much during our short stay in May, but that meant we could take advantage of the sauna (approximately for 7 people), spa (5 people) – both at the top of the list – as well as the table tennis and some pool-time. All in all an ideal opportunity to relax in the peace and quiet in a nice region. The main plus point of this house is without doubt the kindness and availability of the owners who were always ready to take care of small details to make our stay enjoyable.

About the Owner

As we live in the hamlet, we are available to help you enjoy your holiday, so can help with advice on places to visit, restaurants, shopping, doctors etc, translation if required and of course emergencies. We are also around for pool and spa maintenance, building the fires for the sauna and pizza oven, gardening etc. For several years we "commuted" from the UK for DIY/renovation holidays (!) until we decided we preferred life in France and so moved permanently. We're sure you'll love it as much as we do..

If you ever have the chance to stay in this magnificent setting - go for it!

Paradise in the Dordogne

  • 5 of 5

In the middle of nowhere and still not far (4 km) from all needed accomodations, La Vallée offers outside planty of space to play different games. The swimming-pool is remarkable and fits perfectly with our 12-adults family trip. Inside the house with its typical thick walls jou enjoy a cool temperature in all the 6 rooms. There is room enough. Don't forget, with the help our you lovely hosts, John & Lesley, to try the Pizza place : the place TO BE. You'll see it, next to the Jacuzzi ! And on those summer's evening we spent hours to "reconstruct the world" under the Pergola. Hope to get there back soon.

Au milieu de nulle part et pourtant pas très loin (4km) des magasins indispensables pour un tel voyage, La Vallée offre plein d'espace à l'extérieur où vous pouvez jouer à différents jeux. La piscine est remarquable et a parfaitement répondu aux attentes d'un voyage familial avec 12 adultes. A l'intérieur de la maison, avec ses murs typiquement épais, vous profitez d'une fraîcheur dans les 6 chambres. Il y a franchement assez de place. N'oubliez pas, avec l'aide de vos charmants hôtes, John & Lesley, d'essayer le vrai four à Pizza : à NE PAS manquer. Vous verrez, c'est juste à côté du Jacuzzi. Et les soirs d'été, nous avons "reconstruit le monde" sous la Pergola en toute fraîcheur. Nous reviendrons.

Great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great holiday with our family of 14 - children ranging from 2 yrs to 13 yrs plus a couple of oldies! The house is very well equipped and comfortable. The outside space was a bonus - plenty of room for fun and games. The pool was fantastic - kept very clean and solar heating welcome although luckily we were blessed with good weather. Thank you John and Lesley for a very enjoyable stay.

Fantastic holiday villa in lovely area

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from this gorgeous villa and although don't normally leave reviews had such a fantastic time thought we must. We went as a family of 12 with varying ages (including two teenagers and a toddler) and the property catered for all our needs. It was exactly as described on the website, although if anything the photos do not do it justice. Everything you could want or need is provided for you. On arrival the property was clean and tidy and you could see a lot of effort goes into keeping the villa and grounds well-maintained. The pool area, where we spent most of our time, was fabulous. The swimming pool was more than big enough for us all and because of the heating and lights we were able to use it late into the night - great fun was had by all!

Inside the villa, it is spacious and comfortable. There is English TV and although it's not something we normally watch on holiday did mean the kids could escape for the sun! There was also free wifi (a must with teenagers!). In the kitchen there was everything you could need and just in the hall was a large fridge/freezer which meant we could do a big shop and not worry about where to store things. There was a lovely patio area with BBQ and both there and in the kitchen were two large tables, both big enough to seat us all.

We felt the owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome and they were always on hand if we needed any help or advice on days out, restaurants etc. However, they were never intrusive it was just nice to know they were there if you needed them. The little extras at this villa make the holiday feel even more special. We used the spa area on a few occasions and a must is the pizza night. We had a great time making our own pizzas under the guidance of the owners and enjoyed it so much we booked again. Pizzas will never taste so good again!

We visited a few restaurants whilst we were there, one being in the little village (about a 15/20 minute walk) from the villa and would recommend this. We also went canoeing for the day, although we went from Brantome (definitely worth a visit) rather than Riberac as there were weirs to go over which made the day a lot more interesting!

Should we go back to France again as a large group this is the first place we would choose to stay and we would definitely recommend it. We had an amazing time and made lots of special memories. Thank you John and Lesley for letting us stay in your fabulous villa.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a glowing review, we're pleased to know you all enjoyed your holiday so much. We certainly enjoyed having you here and would be happy for you to come back again. We hope your arms have recovered from your day canoeing! Thanks again, and we hope to see you all again in the future.

Ideal for a family multi-activity holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week in La Vallée (7 adults and 6 children) and it really is the ideal place for every member of the family, young or old, to have an enjoyable holiday : between the pool (heated!), the spa (after a good walk), the sauna (when it's not so hot...), the big games field for football, badminton or volleyball, and the cherry on the cake, the pizza oven, designed and built by John himself. He will even give you a lesson on how to bake your own pizzas.. all together with the family ! Excellent holiday, magnificent area and hosts always ready to give you some good tips ! We will definitely go back again...And I forgot to mention all the tourist visits nearby. One of my typical days consisted on getting up at 8am, 1h of jogging from the house, breakfast, pool time with the children, barbecue for lunch, with some table tennis whilst we were waiting, siesta, family walk, pool again, or spa or sauna, a game of volleyball, home-made pizzas and an enjoyable evening spent on the terrace ;-) ... a good holiday...

A little corner of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We, young and old, spent a most beautiful week here. With the pool, sauna and spa, everyone had their ideal holiday... The house has every comfort you could hope for, the garden was well equipped for the younger members of our group, and a lovely terrace and barbecue for family meals. The rooms were spacious, the kitchen, with its large table, was ideal when it rained (:-) yes this can happen even in July) and the divine pizza oven and terrace. A real delight. The ping-pong table, the swings, the sand pit... everything has been thought of for every age of guest. And then we will not forget the warm welcome from Leslie & John... Another plus point! A small detail, but which was important for us ; the photos do actually represent reality, which isn't always the case. To sum up : this property has just gone to the top of our top 5 holiday homes... We thoroughly recommend it !

Location

From the Owner

We chose the property because of its peaceful location in the countryside, yet conveniently close to town for shopping etc. Ribérac is a sleepy rural town for most of the week, so avoiding the crowds, yet comes alive on Friday morning for the market, which is the biggest in the Dordogne. There are plenty of tourist attractions to visit in the area, many within an hour's drive and open outside of July and August, when you can drag yourselves away from the pool! And of course you can't forget the views!

Coast/Beach:

If you can tear yourself away from the pool, there are river beaches at Aubeterre, Verteillac, Tocane, St Meard, Lisle etc, which also offer canoeing from these points. If you fancy some lake swimming, there's a superb lake at La Jemaye (17 minutes away). The supervised sand beach is ideal for young children, with shallow water for paddling, and ice creams not far away! There is also free canoeing during July and August at the lake and lots of scenic walks in the forests.

Also worth a visit: the Farm du Parcot, a showpiece of rural architecture in the heart of the Double forest; the mediaeval chateau at Bourdeilles, the chateaux at Puyguilhem, Beynac, Biron, Les Milandes, de Losse, et de Puymartin. A trip to Bordeaux, the impressive UNESCO city is worth a trip, as well as the ramparts at Angouleme, its vintage car rally & race in September and lastly a tour of local churches, "églises à coupoles". For museum visits: Le Bournat, experience family life in 1900; Castelnaud-la-Chapelle, middle ages war museum; Futuroscope, museum of the moving image; Medicine museum at Hautefort; Oradour, the martyr village from WW2.

Notes:

  • This house is ideal for families and/or friends to spend a holiday together and comfortably accommodates a maximum of 14 people including children. Outside: The large, shaded terrace has a triple permanent barbecue and lighting for the warm evenings, overlooking pretty gardens with a superb view of the valley. There are swings and a sand-pit for the children, close to the house, so you can keep your eye on them. Further away there is a ping-pong table, space for badminton, volleyball and football etc. High hedges surround the pool, making it very private; there is security fencing on all sides of the pool to prevent access to the pool by your children, unless accompanied by an adult. Solar heating warms the water, so making this property ideal for rental in spring and late summer. The large pool (12 x 6m) is completely private, ie not used by anyone else during your stay. The spa, with heating for cooler months, is housed in its own private building so protected from the sun & rain, usable in all weathers, as are the traditional wood-fired sauna and massage room. Have a go at baking your own pizzas in the purpose built brick oven and become a pizzaiolo!
