This truly stunning detached holiday property is set in the grounds of the owner’s elegant 19th century château. It has been restored to a good standard, remarkably decorated with antique furnishings, tastefully chosen with care to compliment the many features, whilst including modern fabrics and fittings in the kitchen and bathrooms. The French windows lead onto a gravelled terrace on which guests can enjoy a glass of local wine in total privacy. There is a shared swimming pool near the owner’s château, 125m away. One of the highlights of this property is that the owner is a horse lover and permits guests to bring their own horses lodged in good standard stables. Rivière has an amazing position close to famous Chinon and its vineyards. It is also a delightful spot for visiting some of the finest châteaux in France: Saumur, Villandry and Azay Le Rideau are all within a short distance. Cycling along the Rivers Loire and Vienne is for the sporty visitors, as well as horse riding, boating and golfing.

Approximate distance to Poitiers airport is 65 km.

    A lovely gite but getting a little tired as there were issues with one of the showers and the BBQ was falling apart, we lost our food when the handle fell off 🤨 and some areas of the pool needed some work. That said, the accommodation had been rented out all year and the owner would have had little opportunity to fix these minor issues. However, for me the biggest issue is the list of what needs to be cleaned on leaving the gite which includes, toilets, bathrooms and all floors not just swept but washed. Although we left the gite in a very clean state (as we found it) stripped the beds, swept the floors, cleaned all crockery and only used one of the gites (rather than the two that I had paid for), I was still required to pay an additional 85€ in full for cleaning. I don’t expect to go on holiday and then have to deep clean the holiday home which needs to be vacated at the latest, by 10 am, prior to leaving. In fairness, I should have been offered a reduced cleaning charge as only one gite had been used.
