About John and Nina Gibbins

We are John and Nina Gibbins.

John and Nina Gibbins purchased this cottage in 2006

Why John and Nina Gibbins chose Perigord Vert

We have spent many years enjoying holidays in France, but always seemed to be drawn back to this region with the sunflowers, the fine wine, food and beautiful scenery. The local markets are just a joy to visit. Aubeterre-sur-Dronne and Brantome are just some of the wonderful places to visit.

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage is ideally located in the hilltop village of Montagrier, above the valley of the River Dronne. The south-west facing property enjoys Dronne valley views, yet is within minutes from shops and river walks, a restaurant is just a short appetising walk away from the cottage.

A private swimming pool is adjacent to the house and the secluded sun terrace. Sunset dining is a must on the terrace after an evening swim. The ever changing landscape views of orchards, sunflower and maize fields below the cottage are a pleasant reminder of French rural life

This charming cottage is equipped with Satellite TV, DVD & CD, yet retains its original features and charm. The oak beamed farmhouse kitchen / dining room has a stone fireplace with log burner for those cosy winter nights.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Absolutely beautiful" Sept 2014

Had a fabulous stay in this charming and well equipped cottage. Montagrier is just stunning and the perfect place to wander and unwind. The cottage has a lovely 'feel' to it and we would recommend it, but not in September as we plan to return then. Charleigh Johnson and family



“Lovely cottage - attractive and interesting area.” Sept 2014

September can be very beautiful in France, and we were lucky this year; stunning weather and a charming house in an area which, though not so well-known, is well worth visiting and exploring; Bergerac, Aubeterre, Brantome and Perigueux all made delightful excursions.



The house is attractive, clean and well-maintained. It has a cosy lounge which is ideal for TV if you want, but we spent most of our time in the huge, comfortable and very French kitchen (with all mod. cons, however) except when drinking wine on the pretty sun terrace. Local restaurant is good and friendly. All in all, a marvellous holiday. Denise A



“Gite in pleasant village with an excellent Auberge” August 2014

The village itself while quiet had a very good auberge which we enjoyed eating and drinking at most days. The surrounding villages were pretty and interesting.

We would be more than happy to book again for future holidays.
