This charming and beautifully restored 16th-century terraced cottage sits on the bank of the gently flowing River Dronne, nestling beneath the château in the historic riverside village of Bourdeilles. You need never move from this enchanting spot, as there are five restaurants, shops, a public swimming pool and excellent bakery within a short walk. You can fish from the garden that overlooks the ancient water mill and visit the château, hire a canoe or take a leisurely stroll along the river bank. The holiday cottage has been renovated and decorated to a high standard yet retains many traditional features including a huge fireplace, wooden floors and beams throughout. This is an ideal cottage for adults and active teenagers. Within a short drive is the fascinating town of Brantôme ‘Venice of the Périgord’ with a popular Friday market and many interesting shops and cafés in its quaint streets.

    Lovely cottage, perfect location, ideal for a relaxing holiday and great base for exploring this part of France. Lots of good restaurants in the village, as well as a very interesting Chateaux

    This is a lovely characterful property in a stunning location and handy for local amenities and attractions. Despite what follows below we had a lovely holiday in this village and surrounding area. However the cottage is in major need of some TLC and better (or any!) client service. There was no handover, welcome pack, (milk, tea, coffee, bread etc would have been nice) or anyone to speak to during our stay. We were not shown where to park but we found for ourselves two public parking spots fairly nearby. We also discovered that the washing machine, dryer and downstairs WC described in the particulars were all out of order. There were a number of things that either needed repairing, replacing or replenishing (eg Doors not shutting or locking properly, light bulbs blown, lack of toilet rolls, kitchen pans, coffee maker and cleaning products etc etc). Clearly the property had not been cleaned or set up properly between lets and we were left with the previous occupants wet towels moldering on the lobby floor for our entire stay. A "welcome" notice rather rudely instructed us to clean the entire property properly before we departed ready for the next occupants in the absence of a changeover cleaner! This property is only set up for a maximum of 4 adults in comfort. Though there are 6 chairs in the dining room and comfortable seating in the lovely living room there are only 4 chairs on the balcony for example. The other outside area is down two steep flights of steps and most inconvenient for dining and unsuitable for small children or adults who are not confident on steps. The setting is great though and we enjoyed feeding the ducks. All in all, it is a pity that this property, with its stunning location and so much potential, is so badly let down by misleading descriptions, lack of maintenance and very poor client care.

    Excellent location by the river with lovely balcony overlooking the river, however basic elements missing - kitchen scissors, oven gloves, saucepans etc - as well as white goods broken (dishwasher & tumble dryer) Owner was informed but did not supply / rectify. Beds were not fully prepared on arrival. No welcome either in terms of local contact or welcome bottle of wine which has been present in all other gites we have rented. Overall assessment of great location but lacking facilities & general maintenance / upkeep.
