Holiday gite to rent near Riberac, Dordogne, Aquitaine / La Maison Bijou
La Maison Bijou is one of 2 holiday gites that we offer in the Dordogne region of France. Both gites are modern & well equipped. Each has its own private, saltwater-system swimming pool and feature BBQ areas for those warm evenings enjoying a glass of wine and nibbling on cheese! The gites are situated in a small, quiet hamlet near St. Meard de Dronne, only 3km from the market town of Riberac on the River Dronne in the Perigord/Dordogne region. Riberac, considered by many to be the gastronomic capital of the Dordogne, is the perfect base for exploring the region; one can visit the vineyards in the Bergerac region and the mediaeval town of St Emillion is just 40 minutes away by road, and is ideal for wine connoisseurs. The average temperature in the summer is 26 degrees, but daily temperatures regularly exceed 30 degrees in high summer.
The location is ideal for vacations; 7 hours by road from the ports of Roscoff & Cherbourg and within easy reach of Bergerac, Bordeaux and Limoges Airports.
There are plenty of activities in the local area, including canoeing, horse riding, river swimming, cycling and walking.
La Maison Bijou - this cottage was converted in 2003 and offers accommodation for up to 6 people. Set on ½ acre of land.
