The famous wine growing area of St. Emilion is just an hour’s drive away. There are opportunities for walking and cycling from the door, canoeing in Ribérac and local cuisine. Relax in the sun on the pool terrace or shady garden terrace and enjoy a glass of local wine. Bordeaux Airport is just over an hour’s drive.

    Chez Jenkins is a delightful barn conversion about 5 km from Riberac. There is much to like about this barn, it is spacious and would accommodate 2 families easily. The pool is lovely as it is in the sun nearly all day; the beds are extremely comfortable and the bathrooms clean and modern with full size baths in two of them with plenty of hot water for everyone. We found the kitchen a bit rustic and basic/tired but still serviceable - with not a lot of room for storage of food - an additional fridge in the utility room would have been useful - plenty of crockery and utensils though. The outside furniture is plentiful in the courtyard and around the pool. The living room furniture is a bit tired, but we hardly used it as we were outside most of the time. The downstairs is cool, but the two front bedrooms do get very warm on hot days and the fans supplied are noisy, so take ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. It's a shame there is no wifi and a very intermittent 3G service, so if you need to download data, it's tediously slow and unreliable. Plenty of games and books for all the family. There are neighbours, but not intrusive. You definitely need a car as the nearest shop is at Riberac. Their concierge David and Julie are extremely helpful and efficient and there is plenty of advice at the barn itself.
